Part 247: Ernalds Feeds the Tribe: Finale
Umathkar returns to the land of mortals, her quest a successful one. Umathkar became wiser, and better able to share that wisdom with the clan.
She's now a heroic leader, which is pretty great.
Early on there was some confusion as to what to do with daga, so I went back to find out what would happen if she attacked it.
Because the heroquest is the story of how they recovered from Daga's attack, killing daga early on ruins it. She wouldn't have gotter her stat gain, either--but like her predecessor, she's cearly quite capable of killing a lack of water. Good show, girl.
The expedition to Kero Fin was successful, and now we have a new got to worship! Praying to Kero Fin does pretty much nothing, as all of her spells are borderline useless. (I'm sure I'll be contradicted quickly)
Anyway, I sent Ortossi out to explore again.
And he found nothing this time.
Stupid trolls. For some reason, we arn't getting magic for defeating them any more, which means their attacks are nothing but distractions. They don't even have horses to steal.
