Bringing the Fire

What: Have a conversation after a performance of Nila's

The beats played by the Wanderer's drummers was primal. It resonated, mingling with Nila's heartbeat. )

My dear friend, I apologize I've been unavailable of late. I'm ill, and have been unable to heal myself. I know how serious that sounds, but I am looking into the nature of the illness. It seems magical in original, which leads me to believe that if a cure exists, it too may be magical. If you hear anything of this illness, please contact me. And be careful. Do not exercise your talents on anyone you suspect is ill. That is all I can say for now. Keep safe.


[Post by flitchhawk to Aoife from Leland]
My Aoife, I must apologize profusely for being unable to see you. Please do not think I changed my mind, I've been ill and though I believe it is the same illness you had, I have been unable to cure myself as yet. I've been at the King and Queens Inn, mostly in bed, which is why I haven't come to see you. I still wish to take you to lunch, as soon as I am able. I do hope to see you soon.

Looking for answers

King Willem was displeased. There was a plague spreading through his domain, the source of which he could not determine. )

Not feeling so hot

Who: Leland and Sibyla
What: Have another run-in while they're both under the weather
Where: At the King and Queen's inn
When: Early afternoon perhaps?
Rating: G or PG at most, I'd expect. Will update if necessary
Leland did not feel well at all. He was certain that he'd managed to contract the same illness Aoife had, but what was bothersome was his inability to heal it. )

Who: Emrys and Caradoc
What: Meet and greet. HOW WILL THIS TURN OUT YOU ASK.
Where: At the Rusty Bucket, of all places!
When: In the evening, before the really rowdy types show up
Rating: PG/PG 13? This place is full of cutthroats and there'll be NPC cursing, at the least.

Emrys frequently had no idea where he was going. He was the sort to often let his feet taken him somewhere, attempt to remember how he'd gotten there, and then figure out a way back. )

Feeling any better?

Who: Leland and Aoife
What: Leland checks in on Aoife

New girl in town

Who: Nila and ?? Madoc!
What: Nila comes back home
Where: The White Horse tavern
When: Around lunchtime. Dinner would work if someone prefers.
Rating: PG most likely

It had been a while since Nila had been back in Sapphire City. Camping outside the city proper gave her some small sense of comfort, but it was still close to her home, still close to the city proper. )

Who: Dareshta and Emrys!
What: Dari is hoping to perform to advertise the Wanderers' presence in town
Where: King and Queen's Inn

The sickness made its way into the city seemingly overnight. No one could pinpoint its initial origins. It could have been brought by travelers, by newcomers to the city, by merchants, traders, pawns or anyone who came and went from town to town within the Sapphire Domain. It started with aches and pains, congestion and exhaustion. When it struck the family of Bertam Ashdown, he shrugged it off. His wife had minor healing talent, enough that illnesses didn't last long in their walls.

But she couldn't heal them. Her ministrations only seemed to exacerbate the illness in their eldest child, and young Nash grew weaker, unable to help his father transport wood to and from the surrounding areas. Betram felt the tickle in his own throat only days later himself, but he kept it quiet. The last thing anyone needed was rumors of a sickness a healer couldn't heal. At the same time, Bertam found himself looking for a true Healer, or one with a stronger talent than his wife had. It could just be beyond her capabilities, he told himself, but something in him caused him to worry. The fear that this was not a normal illness at all.

He went out that night, cold still in his throat, and visited the Rusty Bucket. Three days later, five more men from that locale were also ill. Within two weeks, the population of the sick had tripled, and rumors began. Plague some whispered, citing the symptoms as flu-like. Others spread the more fearful rumor: no healer had been able to quell the disease yet.

The strangest news came from those who had been sick for longer than a week: it was beginning to affect their talents, and that was what began to spread real fear.

The End of a Long Day

Who: Aoife and Everil.
What: Another surprise meeting.
Where: Outside Bronwyn's Chandlery.
When: Evening.
Rating: PG, but possibly higher for language.

It had been an incredibly long day for Aoife. She'd gotten one of their biggest orders wrong and had not only spent the entire day fixing it, but also apologizing profusely to Bronwyn because apparently once wasn't enough. She'd gotten everything righted, but it had required her to work through her midday break.

So now Aoife was exhausted and hungry as she left the shop for the night. She paused for moment just outside the door, brushing her hair out of her face as she enjoyed the cool evening air. She could go to the tavern for a proper dinner. But she was just so tired, she was considering just heading around back to the room Bronwyn let her stay in and make do with the bread, cheese, and apples she'd saved for lunch.

Who: Dareshta and Tegwaret

Emrys had slept late. He awoke to find Madoc gone, probably out running errands, and decided to lay around in bed a little longer. )

Off to the Cobbler

Who: Madoc and ?
What: Heading to the cobbler's.
Where: In the streets of Sapphire City.

Outdoor Life Stinks

Who: Tegwaret and Leland
What: Visiting and Touching Base
Where: Tegwaret's Hideout and the Environs West of Sapphire City
