Design For Living - Tag's Diary - Session 2.7
We then attended the War council. The main aims currently are:
- Raise an Army
- Hit Chaos where it hurts
- Interrogate our "Guests" in the prison
- Rescue the Elders from Chaos
- Find Martin, and Mirelle
During this meeting Atikus seemed very interested in Bloom's past, but she refused to tell him the location of her home shadow, and the way he has been behaving I'm not at all surprised, I wouldn't trust him. Corwin then explained that Grayswandir is a spikard, an item which can draw on power across shadows, however the links to their powers may not work, however their shadows may still exist.
- Locate other Spikards
After the end of the Council we attempted to question the prisoners, however they were protected by Logrus, I left Athena developing a spell. I returned to Metropolis to return with the Gang I used to run, however they had dwindled rather a lot since having left them and were down to a dozen people none of who would have lasted long in the original gang. Upon My return, Bloom and Atikus were fighting, this is becoming a recurring problem. The mission to secure an army from Bloom's home world had apparently been somewhat sabotaged by Atikus, of course Atikus claims he was merely attempting to impress the importance of the war with Chaos to the king. He Is reacting overly irrationally and with larger and larger problems forming afterwards. I think I may have to keep a closer eye on him. Athena then settled the fight and we return to interrogate Salina. This was possible due to Athena spell.
We asked the following:
- Have you been to Fenneval before
Only during the battle not before.
- How Do you know so much about Bloom.
It given in the briefing. She explained the profiles they had on each us and I dragged up memories of the briefings .
- Who were you reporting to
- Which other Generals do you know of who were there.
- Where are the menbers of my family
Flora is being held by the king, she is kept as an ornament in his apartments.
- where are the forward encampments.
There followed a brief description of the Black zone. This is where we learned something useful. The Logrus has the power to create tunnels that do not pass through Shadow. They are a combination of a Logrus tendril and the black road.
- Who made the metal trumps used during the attack.
The Artist regiment
- What other power sources do you know of?
My father has many.
- How did you Stun me last time we met.
There followed a brief explanation of Words of Power
- How is the Castle protected.
Wards, and the Black watch patrols + many others.
- How does the Logrus work.
Many memories of training to use the Logrus were found and assimilated. However how much use they'll be is a different matter.
After the Interrogation Mei-Lian returned, and hugged each of us, at this point we did not realize that she was under someone's control. She then rushed to the Design which she started to walk, after Bloom, Atikus and Athena
attempted to stop her too no avail. Whilst walking the Design Gramble's control over her failed, she collapsed to one knee and was attacked by Atikus. We explained to Atikus that he needed to walk the Design, Mei-Lian was crying claiming that she had killed us all.
