Safety

What kind of Adventure is this?: 
Story

Khaki was the colour of Bree-land. Green, the colour for sleep or delusion, and beige yellows, dulled, sedately corrupted passions.

It was the type of place to lull those who stayed too long into a sense of trouble despite their luxury and wellbeing. People invented trouble here, and sometimes willed it into harmful reality. A side-effect of so much peace and, Ryheric figured, boredom.

Growing Roots

Story

Some goodbyes felt like they took ongoing tolls. Long after the person was out of sight. Left behind, or gone away on the horizon. Or simply parted ways from. In bad blood, or in the best of circumstances.

Ryheric knew it was more than just a person, or even two people, or three. It was more than fifty.

It was hundreds. What had happened to the people at the Hamlet was a weight for him to carry. The weight went deeper, and further back. Some memories were not yet safe to revisit.

Party in the Ladies' House

Dandelynn was sad. Ryheric had never known her to be melancholy before, or lonely like that. It called for some wild, drunken revelry fit for lifting a barmaid's spirits. Dandy partook of course, plenty of booze drunk. The dining table broken. Eirik later crashing into the pantry from a "sleigh" ride down the stairs. There was music, raucous laughter, plenty of food and drink ... and an absolutely trashed house strewn with hungover bodies by the end of it. Just as it should be. The most important part was that Dandy's cheer was returned to her in the end.

Bryn Draws the Ruins in Cardolan

Ryheric took the scholar and the Rohirric healer up to Waterfall Mountain. A quiet journey, this time. So often, Ryheric's attention was demanded in large groups. He treasured his time with people; among them. But beneath it all, the Dark Bard himself was an imposter. An introvert wearing the garb of extroverted leader at need. He made sure to bring Winnie and Bryn with him, without anyone else. For he missed them both. He took a great deal of solace in the silent company of Winnie and Bryn as they simply sat, into the evening with him.

To Celebrate Life

The dance in Combe after Bryn's threat was ended. Ryheric got them all drunk as skunks, shouted defiances against darkness and startled the entire group into a bursting revelry where none of them needed to hide, any longer. Freedom was never safe but it was pure, and nothing compared to it.

A Moment of Warg Corpse Romance

What kind of Adventure is this?: 
Story

There they were, crushed in together at last.

Close proximity in a stolen moment beside the warm furs of the warg -- still warm from the creature's life being fresh taken.

There was pain. There was adrenaline. Both hearts were racing and the hapless warg's heart was brought to a standstill.

Ryheric crushed himself in, vehemently close to his companion, who was crushed by the weight of the huge warg the size of three horses above them. Blanketing them with the assurance of secure deadweight.

The Demise of Eastmunde

---White Mountains, Rohan. Many months earlier---

No sooner had Ryheric made a day long journey to return to Winnie's village, than he was approached by Tarsorel and Winnie's father.

Teal (Winnie's Song)

When Ryheric played Winnie's song, it was to the count of five. Sweet melodies were held aloft as the music urged on, only to stumble and cut itself off. Confusion, quiet overwhelm. The tune would forge ahead to a different section. Or, it would change to chords. Urgent relaxation, breaths between surges of earnest energy. Lovely, unfinished, and sometimes lost.

He saw teal when he looked at her, and this music was for her.
