Chapter Two, Take Two

Beor woke suddenly and grasped his stomach. He was so hungry… No wait, it was a just a dream. But why was his nose bleeding?

Beor exited the hut that the people of Whitening had permitted to sleep in. He may have relit their menhir, but they were an unfriendly bunch regardless. Many had been willing to kick him out of town despite his help.

Beor couldn’t help but feel the need to prepare well for his journey to Kamelot, and there was a bitter cold outside that would surely bring him to harm if he strayed from the vilage. So Beor spent the day crafting in the settlements forge and made himself a Battle Horn. No doubt it would prove useful.

The next day Beor travelled west to hunt for food. He encountered a squire who he bested and also had a successful hunt. With Whiteneings menhir lit it was now safe for Beor to travel north to the Mirror Lake. He did so and rested there in the evening to recuperate from his fights.

The following day Beor rested a little more before deciding to swim to the island in the middle of the lake. The swim was difficult, and something in the water seemed to follow him. But on the island Beor found the shadow-soaked scroll which could allow him to teleport anywhere on the island in the future – a very powerful item indeed. Returning to the shore Beor tried to converse with the Lady of the Lake, but she ignored him. Shunned, Beor headed east while the weather was so good.

In Tangleroot Beor decided bravery served him well so he dove headlong into the gorge. There he found and followed some very large footprints which lead to the dead body of one of the original adventurers, Tracker Fael. Scribbled on the wall of the gorge in Fael’s blood were directions to a hiding place in a nearby log. Within Beor found the Tainted Grail! A note within the grail from Fael explained how the party had split up to try end evade their pursuer. It also asked Beor to return to Whiteneing and inform Feal’s wife of his death.

Beor looked at the Tainted Grail in his hand. He had never even dreamt that he would see such a thing.

 

This play through of chapter two went much better. Through blind luck (and roleplaying Beor being brave and reckless in the wilds) I was able to complete the chapter in less than three days. I had been intending to travel to Kamelot but got distracted by the Mirror Lake and ended up finding the Tainted Grail while travelling east to Kamelot.

The chapter played out in only 40 minutes which in a way disappointed me a little as I love the exploration and discovering the story. But I will try and play chapter 3A this weekend.
