Lew: -Base Building- 30
Lew Begins to build an inn, and sends money to the school for expansion. Progress is slow, as there aren't many public labourers available to hire, due to the large amount of other building projects going on.
Lew: -Sneak Peek- 29
Several of Lew's explorers are caught by the guards hired by Elforche to protect the mines. Thankfully, no violence breaks out, but Elforche's guards put these family members in custody and refuse to release them until Lew answers to Elforche for their actions.
Lew: -Shuidri "Management"- 66
Removing the Shuidri seems to be effective. Commoners who report having nightmares are treated by members of Lew, who remove the Shuidri from the clothing of the commoners and allow them to sleep peacefully once more. Convincing the Shuidri to be peaceful has proven less effective. Cynical by nature, these ancient insects have long lived a life of parasitism and traumatizing. Their instincts are very strong, and even if one or two are convinced, their morals seem to die along with them.
Lew: -Forest Forages- 68
Deer, boar, and foxes are found in decent supply by the explorers, for use as Shuidri hosts. They are well fed and kept in pens separate from the other animals, to avoid Shuidri contamination spreading. Those who ventured into the forest to investigate disappearances have found strange bipedal tracks in a swamp-like area of the forest. They have a step size that is rougly human, but the feet only have three large toes. Spooked, the explorers return home with this information.
Lew: -Simple Science- 17
The commoner that Lew has hired has turned out to be concealing a staunch Udebha'ian viewpoint. He teaches the children of Udebha's creation of the world, and how the soul is trapped within the body first and foremost, before teaching other natural sciences, in light of an Udebha'ian view. Dabalian parents are outraged by this new cirriculum, and demand the teacher be replaced. Lew's reputation with Dabalian populace decreases sharply.
Ferran: -Inn Construction- 52
Inn construction goes along smoothly. If Ferran is content with building a small inn, it will be completed this month. If they want a larger inn, it will take more time. The choice is up to them.
Ferran: -Forging Fires- 70
A terrible "accident" has taken place in the village. The Amiable Anvil, a startup smithing business, had their forge erupt into flames, causing the entire building to burn down. The owner managed to escape, badly burned, but his apprentice was killed in the outburst. All the inventory of the Amiable Anvil is also ruined by the flames, and beautiful ironworks are melted and marred; everything from swords to horseshoes has been ruined. Amiable Anvil has no way to recoup their capital, and Elforche doesn't seem to willing to once again aid them. They are in dire straits.
Ferran: -Mason Order- 49
The Ferran family manages to buy a manifesto from a travelling merchant that was written by a master bricklayer, which details many insights into masonry.
Ferran: -Armaments- 26
Ferran has begun to produce more military oriented arms and armour. This was not a problem, however their business income has dropped sharply, since most villagers and travelling merchants are looking to buy trinkets, farm implements, and other more practical goods, or to get their own items repaired, which Ferran now has less time to work towards.
Tannell: -Inn'tellectuals- 48
Eloquent Oak construction goes along smoothly. If Tannell is content with building a small inn, it will be completed this month. If they want a larger inn, it will take more time. The choice is up to them.
Tannell: -Steely Treatments- 57
Study progresses at a normal rate. Steel is discovered to be much harder and more durable than iron, and therefore will be more valuable. It does not seem to rust as badly as iron from exposure, although it is heavier. In the field of medicine, Tannell has discovered that the same thing that preserves food in salt seems to help keep wounds from putrifying. By rubbing salt on [smaller] open wounds, they will heal faster and do not need amputation. What Tannell does with this knowledge is up to them.
Tannell: -Assassination Investigation- 80
Upon investigating some of the hoods and bows left at the scene of the crime, one of Tannell's sons has traced them back to a small fletcher who creates hunting garb. After being both bribed and threatened, he reveals that a member of Asura paid large sums of money for the highest quality bows and arrows, and for all of his dark hunting hoods. Tannell's son has not yet confronted Asura on this matter, and Asura is currently unaware that Tanell has the knowledge that it was them that committed the crime.
Asura: -Northeseph Smith- 98
Northe stands in the village square where Tiglam was assassinated, and makes a very effective speech. He informs the populace of the Dark god, a being that forces those who know of it top harm friends and family. This Dark god appears in visions to those who are asleep. Upon this revelation, many more confess that they have also seen this Dark deity, and pledge their allegiance to Northe to help him work against this evil entity. Northe rallies a large number of people, and in his name they set up a small camp in the woods outside the village, swearing fealty to Northe and to helping each other escape the Dark god's grasp. Northe makes a public promise that the murderers of Tiglam will be forgiven, as this Dark god has controlled them to kill Tiglam. Northe writes a book, detailing his encounters with this Dark god, and how to avoid it. He rewrites the book several times, but all editions are accepted as canon by his followers.
Asura: -Xijin's Investigation- 49
Xijin, who was clearly not responsible for this disruption of his wedding, has begun to investigate his own family. He is particulary suspicious of his half-brother, Northe, who has swayed so many people and who has promised forgiveness to the killers, and all Asura members who follow him. Xijin knows who from Asura is following Northe in this vendetta against the Dark god, but cannot be sure that they were indeed the assassins.
Asura: -Xijin's Married Life- 14
Lenora doesn't seem to be the person Xijin thought she was at all. After her instinctive murder of the hapless guard who had tried to arrest them, she has become cold and reclusive, and unwilling to communicate with Xijin. They haven't slept together yet, as Xijin is a noble soul and wants to give her some space, and time to consent. Lenora regards Xijin with basic respect, but acts very independantly, and most of the time wants nothing to do with him, instead choosing to help the populace of Frye or consort with members of Elforche. Relations between Asura and Elforche have become strained.
Asura: -Hired Guards- 44
Some villagers find the idea of a mercenary company in their peaceful village bizarre, but travellers and merchants readily hire mercenaries and guards to go with them on the roads to other villages, happily paying Asura's asking price. However, those who are involved in shady business in Frye have also hired these mercenaries as extra muscle to aid in committing crimes.
Asura: -Trusting Townsfolk- 72
The commoners appreciate the monetary aid and helping hands that Asura has been showing, and they appreciate it greatly. Many have stopped questioning Asura of the assassination, largely due to the benevolent acts they have carried out recently.
Asura: -Tactical Teaching- 11
Xing, while being venerable, respectable, and knowledgeable, seems to have very little patience with children. He rules the classroom with an iron fist of fear, causing many children to skip out of his classes entirely, or fail to concentrate and learn much of anything.
