We will be performing the Kankerata Run in Hex 1325. Kankerata is the guardian of the plains.
An escort is assigned to travel with us – Denide is going – Aecora is not.
(Day 21) – Morning of our departure – Jenna Varn arrives with a Centaur. The centaur (Xamanth) talks with Denide. Makes references to “Mother” (Aecora). Prisoner doesn’t have right. Discussion…discussion. Fine…
Xamanth Silverfire (Daughter of Aecora)
Jenna relates to us that she had come here to mediate with the Centaurs. She is aware of the Varn missing. She doesn’t believe the Centaur were involved from her scouting. With the pass closed, she presented herself as a prisoner of war.
We equip Jenna with some items. (+1 Breastplate, +1 Seeking Heavy Crossbow, +2 Defending Long Sword (crest of varn))
(Day 22) We arrive in Hex 1325 where we will be performing the Kankorata Run.
Kancorata roughly translates from Sylvan as “Worldeater” (Bulette)
Hex 1325 the prairies are disrupted by sink holes and depressions. Like Mammoth sized gopher holes.
The course is a 2 mile long. We are given torches. Seems we will be going into some of the holes. Fun times. Four other Centaur’s are running the course with us.
1 Down the Hill (Acrobatics or Fort) x
2 Threading the Needle (Acrobatics or Perception) x
3 The Sinkhole (Climb or Swim) x
4 Glowing Crystal Room (Reflex or Sense Motive) x
5 Unstable Room (Handle Animal (Bats) or Reflex (Rocks)) x
6 The Lair (Stealth or Climb) x
7 The Collapsing Caverns (Fort or Perception) x
== Above Ground ==
8 Open Air (grass/bramble damage roll or Climb) x
9 Muddy Ravine (Swim or Strength) x
10 Home Stretch (Fort or Climb) x
Stasja edges out Denide to win the race. We help some Centaurs that are hurt during the race.
Hex 1325 – The Blood Furrows – Religious site – Nomen probably have a pact with Kankerata
Current Trust Score: 22 (Full Neutral)
(Day 23) Traveling back to 1426
We spend a few days with the Nomen. With our Trust Score, we find out which hexes have religious significance to the Nomen: 1126 (Tribal Burial Grounds), 1325 (Blood Furrows/Kankerata), 1525 (The Bone Yard/Pilgrimages to keep ghosts and spirits placated)
They fashion a twine amulet that when worn will help us avoid initial hostility with other tribes in the area.
