ROUND FOUR

I AM SO HAPPY I LOVE THIS SB AND I LOVE YOU ALL AND YES YES YES YAY OKAY I'M DONE GUSHING OKAY OKAY

Ya'll ready for the next round? This one's gonna be short with mostly one post per person (except the last one?) as we lead up to a big conflict climax. YEET. So here's what we've got planned! As usual, collabing is encouraged if you're able, and you know I'm always down to collab! WINKETY WINK ;D ;D

Spoiler! :
1. The group moves on again, feeling somewhat aimless. They run into another group of travelers who do not know where they are, and are lost. @Wolfical
    > I want some foreshadowing of Brett and brother stuff? This is very vague for me but I want to keep building up slowly Brett's relationship w/his brother so when they head to the west there's history there.
2. They help the travelers get re-oriented and headed in the right direction. They escort(?) them to a certain point of reference before leaving them to themselves. The travelers mention running into mage hunters (the same kind of people that had come for Adina). Some talk about anti-magic-ness and how different people feel different degrees of wariness/anger/fear towards those who choose to practice it. Rosaleen is likely really vocal and holds a very strict "this is super messed up" ideology about it. I'd be curious to hear Ari's thought process about it (though I assume he's very open to magic users, especially since getting to know Adina) @FalconerGal9086
3. They send off the travelers, say goodbye, and head their own way. Make mention of the people who seem to still be after Adina. Discuss worries of the mage hunters presumably being in the area. Also, maybe not ironically Adina practices some magic with James? Maybe that's when they can talk about it or Adina opens up more about using magic and her feelings about having it. I'm gonna develop that I swear lol. @soundofmind
4. Kaia comes to a decision about her future and what she wants to do next - which is to go find James + Co. Kaia finally tracks them down. They see/hear her approach and freeze cause it's awkward. Is she back to get James? Did she change her mind? Why is she here?!?!?! CLIFF! HANGER! DUN DUN DUNNNN @Lael
5. Awk convo ensues, but they agree to let Kaia join them. Awk tension between Rosaleen and Kaia - Rosaleen hasn't brought up their deal and neither has Kaia yet, but Rose can feel the pressure. @sherlockhson and @Lael and @soundofmind... maybe as many people as we can manage to get into a wfp at one time lol but @sherlockhson would post cause I want this from Rose's perspective >:)
