The Kingdom

July - August, Summer of Year One


Rowan begins matchmaking. Her first project: Tommy & Janie.
—Tommy  Helpful; Janie  no change (indifferent)
Hugh makes blackberry cobblers (Yum!) and Rowan takes them to new settlers to welcome them and let them know how things work in Langston.
Kaydar & Kirstoff work on arming the militia.

Rowan continues matchmaking
—Tommy = +!; Janie = Helpful
At Hugh’s request we begin exploring around the Darkwood grove. In the nearby hills we discover a trading post run by Oleg & Svetlana that is being harassed by bandits.
Our plan to ambush them goes flawlessly. The leader & two others submit to our frontier justice and the third is granted exile in exchange for leading us to the bandit camp.
Kaydar and Kirstoff scout and end up getting spotted by the guard & having to take on three bandits + their leader. Kaydar is dropped before Hugh and Rowan can come running.
Bandits are dispatched but one from the camp takes off into the woods. Beckus tracks & trees the bandit who surrenders when we come upon them. He says the bandits were robbed and stuff was taken by goblins. He would lead us there and tell us where to find the Stag Lord if we spared him.
Returning to the bandit camp we discover scouts hurriedly packing. Brief battle and we kill them. Taking what we can we return to Oleg & Svetlana’s.
Rowan & Hugh attempt to show the bandit that there is more to be gained from working with us than against us.
