Waning Philodox Moon
so we finally got to meet the Uktena up state. it took a long car journey made even longer by Marlow’s insistence of filling his pockets with slowly rotting cheese, god i cant see how someone with a Garu’s nose can stink so badly. on the way we passes some of Poledra Stalks the skies family on their way to some meeting or another. eventually we reached the diner where we were to meet the Garu we had come to consult as a gift we gave them the books from our vampire raid (they were usless to us and it meant we did not have to deal with them) they were accepted as if we had given them something priceless. as a cost for their help they have charged us with finding a couple of kin folk on honeymoon in the city. should not be too hard.
Right. So we got stuff from the Vampire…Gave my loot to the Frankweiler’s and the others went through the books. Only 1 book that was magical, along with some blood red flowers that smell iffy. Might be able to trade those, but you never know.
Before we began our journey to Nigra Falls (where the Uktena tribe lives), went to see The Great Mouse spirit. He taught me a new gift, but I had to carry a load of cheese around to give to various mice I found as Chiminage. I don’t mind, but I think the others got irritated.
We went via Rena’s van and everyone was complaining about how I stank of Brie. I didn’t think they would mind! It wasn’t like I smelt of vomit or someone else! and it wasn’t like it was especially strong cheese anyway. Didn’t stop Greypaw from buying some powerful smellies to spray all over the van and me too! still smell of flowers…which is new for me.
One thing of interest as we were travelling was we apparently met up with another pack, the Storm Rovers, who were going upstate to attend a marriage i think. One of their member’s was a 2nd cousin of Pol’s…could be wrong, but I think that was it. They chatted a bit, but nothing that interesting came up, so I went back to watching the surroundings and enjoying my beef jerky.
We got to meet Walks-the-Path of the Hidden Waters Uktena sept in a diner at Niagra Falls. Well, not there, but nearby. Pol’ chatted and explained our situation, but they wouldn’t help unless we did them a favour. Apparently, 2 newly wedded kinsfolk went off to the Big City to enjoy some of the City life for their honeymoon. Good on them! Hope they enjoyed themselves! Will have to tell them about some of the many art galleries and amateur theatricals we have going on. Only, they’ve been missing for a few days. hacks-the-wyrm has a few ideas, but we need to get back to the city to discover more. If we find them and bring them back, the other pack might help us with the Talon. At least we got a picture and some scents…that should help a little…I hope.
