Evie, Is Alister still dressed as a monk? Does he/she have the hood up or down? Or is he/she in normal cloths?

I didn't change her out of her monk's clothing. I figured she probably would feel self-conscious changing clothes in front of a priest, even in her borrowed male form.  And since it's wet out, she probably has the hood up, though she might lower it to show Washburn it's her and not someone else. :)

I am wondering who might be left to be a threat in Meara? Laurna, you're the geneologist, what do you reckon?

Whoever it might be who considers himself (or herself) a just claimant to the Mearan throne, I'm also wondering if perhaps there is someone meddling with local matters from outside the Kingdom in order to cause headaches (and a possible distraction) for Kelson.  Teymuraz was killed by Duke Alaric, but he left heirs who share his pretensions to Torenth and his hatred for Gwynedd.  Maybe some descendant of Teymuraz is meddling in Meara affairs, trying to set up a puppet ruler there who will distract Kelson's focus away from some larger, more insidious plot?

But hey, that's just me and my evil mind awhirl....   ;)   ;D

This is my list for descendants of the Prince of Meara.  It is as yet incomplete. not all births and deaths are recorded.  Make of it what you will.

Not all would-be kings need to be prince's or decedents of prince's for that matter. If one has the proper backing or can exhibit power and vision. You can be anybody and be elevated to rank, title, and privilege.

Look at Warren de Grey.

The field is wide open on who could be the mastermind behind it.

Well played, revanne; I was trying to come up with a pretext for Aliset to go for that amulet herself!   ;D

So did you actually Heal the poor guy or not before cutting away most of his power and protection?  It looked like the dice roll for Healing was a success, but then you yanked Columcil out of that healing trance so fast, his head probably spun! LOL!

Columcil pulled out before the healing as I wasn't sure whether the amulet would block it and figured the dice roll was for the healing trance. I've added a couple of sentencez to make it clear.

Without me looking for it and rereading it, does anyone remember how much info Wincent had gotten out of Derry's amulet when he took it from him. Did he know that it was Alaric's or did he use it? My memory is falling me on the subject.

I don't remember offhand, but it needn't be the same sort of amulet/medallion in any case.  I think Austin's master would have imbued his amulet of protection with whatever specific magics he wanted to give it, which would probably have included some way to enhance and expand on his psychic link with his minion to aid in communicating with him and keeping track of his whereabouts, but also would have enhanced Austin's ability to block against some forms of magic/psychic interference that his own natural (albeit human) shielding wouldn't have been strong enough to protect him from.  It would also serve as a focus for Austin if he needed to send a psychic message back to his master, especially if he needed to do so at some other time than their prearranged interval.  So I guess in those ways it is very similar to the St. Camber medallion Alaric gave Derry, except that I don't recall Derry's medallion having specific powers to block Mind-Reading, Truth-Reading, or other psychic interference, so it might be different in that respect.  Then again, it's also been a few years since I read HD.

Since I doubt that Austin's master is the overly scrupulous sort, it could be that he's programmed that amulet for a few darker functions as well, such as tripping a Death-Trigger on Austin if he ever gets into a situation where he's irretrievable and likely to reveal too much information. So maybe it's a good thing it's no longer around his neck....  ;D

I had an idea just now, but it would involve using Ward Cubes, and looking back over my character profile, I realized that it doesn't specifically say anything about having Ward Cubes, and I don't think anyone else thought to add that into their list of equipment to begin with either!  Yet I can't imagine that a party of Deryni adventurers in a time period where being Deryni is mostly accepted wouldn't have at least one set of Ward Cubes among them somewhere. Should we maybe roll a d6 to see if we happen to have a set in our travel kit?   I mean, I could even imagine Darcy being attracted at some point in his history to buy a set of attractive dice, not realizing what drew him to them is that they're actually Deryni ward cubes. LOL!  The idea I had isn't completely dependent on us having a set of Ward Cubes to use, but I thought it might be handy to know if we have some with us or not for future reference.  I'll go ahead and roll for Aliset.  1 to 3= No, 4 to 6=Yes.

((Dice roll 2, Validation #2vn7tjk78x))

Well, dagnabbit, she must have fled her home too quickly to grab all her magical supplies.  *sigh*

Remember that pouch Darcy has secreted in his sea bag?  The one he accepted from the Deryni Quartermaster before the man drowned?  He did have a look inside it, to make sure he wasn't carrying anything that might get him killed.

Odd dice, that tingle ever so slightly when he handles them. 

Does this require a dice roll?  It was in my plan early on.

That is something you can spend a Hero Point on. Hey look I do have Ward Cubes. Minor alterations in reality that can help you are OK as long as they are not earth changing of course. An object in the right place. A friendly helpful NPC.

This brings up the question, when we decide to spend a Hero Point, do we have to declare we're spending it before we roll the dice? Or can we use the Hero Point to ensure success without having to roll the dice at all?  Or if we've rolled the dice but failed by one point (or just failed, period), can we then use the Hero Point to turn it into a success roll? Or all of the above?

Of all the people in our group, Wash should have ward cubes. But if he doesn't have them, I don't think I am willing to waste  a hero point for it. Right about now, I think he would rather do a Death Reading of his friend's killer, than concentrate hard enough to create a ward.  Sorry.

I am going to be out of town for today, Wednesday. Just know that if Alister's killer does anything stupid, the black knight's dagger is in hand and prepared to be used. Also his bow is on his back, ready. Anyone can play him for me, if needful.

See everyone tomorrow.
