In the ruins of the ancient orcish Stoneworks, Lem King, Fero Feritas, and Hella Varal find themselves snared by by botanical beasts. But what lies beyond, to the north, may be even more dangerous: The soaring ambition of the Mistral, the birdkin who seek to leave faltering Hieron behind in search for a more stable home above. But as is always the case in journeys made, some are called riders and others mules.
This week on Spring in Hieron: Who Vouches?
PARTNERSHIP is a difficult prospect for all mages, as the
IMAGE-IDEAL of any spell differs between all who cast. Even a
trifling CANTRIP like the summoning of a sphere of light is soiled
by the projection of a mage's SELF. The color, the shape, the
intensity: All shift due to bias and experience. And so to perform
even such a simple glamour as this with a partner is to court
disaster. This is why in all but the most troubling of endeavors,
the wise mage works alone.
