Part 63: Some Whiny Kid Whines A LotI have to say, my jaw dropped a bit when I saw the Praxians invade. Raids by these guys are seriously rare unless you've done something to piss them off(or unless you chose them as your ancestral enemy, but we didn't). Although we do revere Elmal Horsefriend as our main god, so perhaps they hate us ever so slightly more than the usual Orlanthi clan? At any rate, goon strategy has dicated that we skirmish, drive them off and use 4 magic.
Fingers crossed, everyone!
It...could have been worse, I guess? This counts as either a win or a tie, although I can't tell which until we deal with this:
Farad, a warrior of the Woodpecker clan, comes bearing "something you may have been looking for." He refers to Arene, the young daughter of one of your weaponthanes. "She came to our clan claiming to be an orphan, insisting that we adopt her, so that she could grow up to be a mighty warrior. We recognized your clan insignia, and reckoned that her story could stand to be checked. That's when she started the tantrum that she's been throwing the whole way over here."
-Ask Farad if his clan wants to adopt her
-Tell Farad that you owe his clan a favor
-Convince Arene that your clan produces great warriors, too
-Scold Arene for embarassing the clan
-"This is not a matter for the ring."
We must show our gratitude to Farad.
Scold the impertinent brat!
Her words, though foolish and without foundation, have brought shame upon our warriors.
This child's unknowing words have brought shame upon our warriors.
Better to cook with honey than with ashes.
We have failed her, at least let her have a chance with the Woodpeckers.
