:ooc: No, your post was great, Paul. I am just going with the idea that the strain of this last adventure has caused her to pull back. Maybe she is hurt by his action, even though it was a bout of madness. Maybe she is suffering through her own madness that she suffers.

I don't intend to have anything lasting - just working with some inter-character tensions.

The days passed into autumn and Esgalwen did not travel far from Rhosgobel, save to occasionally hunt with the hunters, or fish and trap with the trappers. The rest of her time was spent in craft with the matrons and maidens of the village. It eased her mind to participate in these mundane tasks and it gave her a feeling of accomplishment. After the dark journey into the realm of the spiders and the utter despair of the forest, Gwen needed to ease her mind.

There had been little contact with her companions and even the Brown Wizard was rarely seen. Grimbeorn and Hathcyn had returned north to their perspective homes and lives, and Arbogast had followed the trail back to the Black Tarn. It had been four weeks since the two of them had spent time in talk and seeking out the Kingstone, and Esgalwen still felt the rift that was now between them.

The time she had spent with Arbogast on the hill had been pleasant, but Esgalwen was aware of the change. Things were different ever since the lake and the freeing of Duskwater's spirit. She could never tell Arbogast, of course, as she did not know its cause. They had suffered greatly, each enduring the strains of their journey and the horror of the spiders. They had almost given all for this task and Arbogast turned on them in the end. Was it his plan all along? Did he intend on using them to achieve his goal of vengeance? And then to turn his weapon on them.

Madness had taken him, Esgalwen explained to herself for his actions, but still something was now different in her heart. Even as she had hugged him and said goodbye, she felt a distance for this man that she thought of as a brother.

Time is all we need, she told herself. We all need time from each other.

:ooc: More to come... still putting this one together in my brain.

That's really handy - thanks.  Also, we killed the Beast of Mirkwood in Chapter 5?!?!

Okay - dropdown menus have been updated. I will correct Linduis' character address when that sheet is created.

Also, you guys will now see our previous chapters have been separated out into their own threads. I thought it might be easier to find story details this way. If you guys do not like it, I can easily put it back the way it was.

No - I got the dropdowns working again a while back. Sorry - I guess I should have said something.

Okay, if you guys do not need the items, I am going to thin things down.

I wasn't aware that the dropdowns still worked - I thought we lost them at one point during a hosting move.  Since then, I work from Dropbox and a copy of the player's map that I saved a while back.

:ooc: Thanks, Tom.  I checked up on the details of Grimbeorn's visit but got sucked into reading through the scene again and ran out oftime to post.

I will add to Tom's info above that Mogdred drove out the old King of the Toft, Vidugalum, forcing him to take his followers north and (ultimately) try to seize Stánford.

Viglund and his son are both alive. In my narrative I mentioned that Hathcyn learned the son went south to the calling. What came out of that is unknown.

The people of the Toft joined with Mogdred and took him as their leader. I believe there was a gathering that happened and chose him as the leader of both settlements.

Hathcyn has also charged Athala, if she wants his support in revenge, to determine if they are in league with the Orcs.

We know Viglund is wirking with orcs and possibly other dark men further north in gundabad.
