And of course, having run off at the mouth about a beautiful Haldane crimson dress with gold embroidery, it took me half forever to find the [expletive deleted] gown.

Happy birthday, Laurna!  Alaric says that while a Haldane crimson and gold ballgown would of course be lovely, he would like to suggest the Morgan colors for you instead.  So here is a Victorian ballgown in the Morgan colors:

Nothing like a little behind-the-scene friendly rivalry influencing your ballroom wardrobe options, is there?   ;)

Happy birthday, Laurna!  I believe His Grace of Corwyn has his kitchen staff very busy preparing for the feast to celebrate your day!

(And nice cake, DR!)

Thank you!  I know Laurna likes to sew and likes pretty dresses, although I couldn't really find a Victorian/Victorian-inspired dress-cake I liked, so I did the best I could.  ;)

(Although there was this one gorgeous dress [an actual formal gown, not a cake that looks like one] that was Haldane crimson with gold embroidery . . .)

It's Laurna's birthday again!

Happy birthday!  I hope you have a wonderful day!

(Just pretend that the name "Eliana" at the base of the cake reads "Laurna.")  Enjoy!

Character Name: Trello    Race: Deryni
Gender: Male                     Age: 15      Size: Shorter and thinner than average

Hit Points:    6          Movement:
Weapon Proficiency Group: Light Melee Weapons
Weapon Mastery: Dagger

Family Trade: Lesser Merchant Class - city of Beldour in Torenth

Belief: Trello is a loyal subject of King Liam Lajos. Trello would consider it shameful to ever do anything that would bring distress to the kingdom of Torenth. Trello is also loyal and honorable to his family and friends. Trello has a bit of ambition, but wouldn’t want to come off as haughty. He is a seeker of knowledge and a teacher of what he has learned.

Description: Born into a lesser merchant family in the city of Beladour, Torenth, Trello was better off than the common people who lived near the river. He knew he was fortunate indeed that his father was of some means, but he also knew that he could not long stretch the family income, so he must find himself gainful employment. Or in Trello's case, a sponsor.

Trello, as most around him knew from an early age, was not without his skill set. Beginning nearly as soon as he could walk, Trello had an uncanny ability with rhythm. Every pot, pan, spoon and tool became part of the percussion session. As his language developed, so to his ability to put words to the tunes that always seemed to be in his head. The nearby tavern introduced him to the lute, the fife, the horn, the pipes. Each in their turn he became master of until the locals could teach him no longer.

It is now Trello’s turn to depart his father’s shop and find places and people who can teach him more or would pay him for his skills.

Gold: 10

Traits: Spell Touched, Charismatic, Nimble Fingers, Perceptive

Spell Touched: It runs in the family. You were born with an arcane heritage, and while the centuries have diluted the power, you are still able to subtly influence the world around you by merely willing it to happen.

Charismatic: I can get what I want without even asking. You gain Advantage when attempting to convince someone of something or otherwise influence them.

Nimble Fingers: I could have sworn I left it right here! You gain Advantage when Testing to pick locks, steal, or do slight-offhand.

Perceptive: What has been seen cannot be unseen. You gain Advantage when Testing to gain information about your surroundings or find things which may be hidden. You gain this even while asleep.

Inventory: Adventure's kit, Lute, Tin Whistle, drum sticks (2), Concertina

I'm considering an "adventurer", but I need some time for my mind to cook them up into something more complete.

I think it worked!  Woo hoo!

It did work. I got the email!

Just remember the important rule when it comes to rolling the dice.
1d6 is at a Disadvantage
2d6 is Standard
3d6 is at an Advantage

The total of the dice doesn't matter in most cases. It's just the individual rolls. And there we are looking for a 5 or a 6. Anything else doesn't help.

I remember once reading from either Shiral's hand or Jerusha's that KK was not allowed to kill off Alaric, that he had to die asleep in his bed after the age of ninety. I was always in full agreement with that theory. But now I see it is not KK's hand who has "Done our beloved hero in."  Not KK's hand at all, but our beloved Game master Bynw who did the deed.  :'( :'(
At least if it is around the years 1159-1163 or so, Alaric was almost  seventy and he was a fighting man to the end. He will be forever missed. This is a good reason for Washburn to be wearing black, in honor of Alaric.

(P.S. I hope it offends no one that Washburn was made a Morgan. If it does, I am sorry. It  just sort of fell in that way, It was not my original intention.)

I just got back from taking dad to a dr appointment, maintenance stuff, and it looks like our adventure has begun and I still have to read how this is going to play out.

Oh and Hint, hint, to a few rhemuth castle members. I think we may need a Priest.. hint, hint.. or another adventure to meet up with along the way. Perhaps a younger son of Dhugal's or Rory's, or even a younger prince to join us. Yes? Lol. Now to go learn how to do this. I am a newbie at  role-playing.  We may be in for some troubled times.

When I game, I often play a healer class, but at the moment, offline life has me a bit too busy to roll up a character for this campaign.  Maybe somewhere down the line I can play an Anviller or something who found Annales Queroni or some other lovely old manuscript(s) full of forgotten knowledge . . .
