Ambush of the Day #2115

We made the naive mistake of camping out without a night watch, and early in the morning, before sunrise, Jacob was woken by a morning star striking the ground just inches from where he lay. Our crew acted quickly, though Mitch’s weasel familiar woke before he did, and in a few moments – thanks largely to Laurel’s sharpshooting and not at all to my bumbling – we made it through the goblin ambush alive.

My efforts were a little more helpful once we reached the city, and between investigations at the chemist, the fletching academy, the library and the military district, we’ve perhaps worked out the mystery of the murder of Jacob’s old mentor.

It’s tricky to find the right level of immersion in this kind of thing – I worked at decoding a cipher at the library while the others were exploring town, but of course I could hear their conversations across the table.

There’s a Rift Keeper to track down now, and more mysteries to unravel – surely the Fate of the World will hang in the balance soon. Lee has a story brewing; I hope to learn more about it before too long.

to meet you
