Howdy folks! More announcements will be coming soon, but we wanted to let you know ASAP that this month's AC will be a check in only. We've had a rough time on the mod side of things and haven't delivered a lot of what we planned for this month, so in the interest of not being huge hypocrites, we're giving everyone a free pass. Your regularly scheduled AC and mod plot will both resume in August.

You are required to reply to the Activity post to indicate that you're still around, even if all you say is "here." If you'd like rewards points for the month you should do the full form.

Additionally, at the beginning of August we'll be choosing new IC leaders for vacant or NPC-filled positions. If you're interested in one, get your application in before August 1.

We're climbing back on the plot-delivery and player-plot-approval wagon and will have more updates for everyone shortly. Thanks for bearing (heh heh) with us!

open.

FORM: Sending crystal.
SENDER: Gwenaëlle Vauquelin.
RECIPIENT: Everyone with a crystal.
WHAT: Yo I heard you like books.
WHEN: Current.
WHERE: Kirkwall.
NOTES: I am happy to do action-spam threads here for anyone coming to grab some book.


( Without any fanfare, Gwenaëlle gets briskly to the point: )

To simplify matters, my grandfather purchased for me the contents of the house that I'm currently renting. I've been sorting through the library, such as it is, while I clear the shelves for my own books I anticipate arriving within the month - I don't imagine most of it is going to be pressingly relevant to anyone's research, but the social and military histories, as well as the etiquette books, might come in useful for our tame demons as they adapt.

( Are we not calling the rifters that. Thranduil literally lives with her now, why is she like this. )

Some of the academics look curious. In any case, I am having the lot of it boxed up. It's all quite clearly labeled and inventoried. If anyone wishes to come and collect it for the Inquisition's library, or sift through and see if there's anything of interest, you've until the end of the week and after that it's being donated to the Chantry.

FORM: Sending Crystal
SENDER: Kaisa
RECIPIENT: People in the Chantry Relations project
WHAT: There's BLOOD MAGIC AFOOT. And it's GROWING PLANTS.
WHEN: Right after this
WHERE: Right smack dab next to what was once the chantry memorial garden
NOTES: Elthina would be rolling in her grave. If she had a grave. And a body that wasn't a fine ash.


Hey guys! Kaisa here. So, uh. Remember how we all agreed on how we ought to work on getting that Chantry memorial garden back up and running? Well, I'm there right now, and we've got a pretty big problem here.

[ A pause, and then helpfully: ]

It's not my fault.

[ Just putting that out there. ]

The entire area where the garden used to be is a forest. Like. A real, honest-to-Andraste forest. It's...actually really pretty? Everything is flowering and it smells really nice. But still. There's a forest here. Right in the middle of Hightown and everything.

I guess it wouldn't be a huge issue, aside from maybe squirrels attacking random nobles--that'd actually be pretty funny--but forests don't just sprout up. I may be a city-slicker, but I can tell you that much. So I poked around, and I believe I found evidence of blood magic being involved.

[ There was a bunch of blood in the middle of a magically created forest. Kaisa does, admittedly, share her religion's intolerant view of blood magic (Warden bullshit aside, that's different), but she's pretty sure that's a solid cause for suspicion. ]

I don't know why someone would use blood magic to grow a forest, but they used blood magic on holy ground--is it still holy ground? I'm not sure about that, but still. You guys get why this might be more of an issue than a few extra trees, right?

Oh, and don't worry, I destroyed the evidence of the blood magic. Figured that's the last thing people around here need.

[ Well, she is a Warden. Suppression of sketchy facts is their MO. ]

WHO: everybody in Kirkwall
WHAT: garden's fixed
WHEN: late Solace
WHERE: Hightown, the site of the former Chantry
NOTES: this isn't really a log so much as a status update


Literally overnight, a dense and mature forest has sprung up in the struggilng crater-garden that used to be the Kirkwall Chantry. It's a beautiful sight to behold, and every herb and vegetable being cultivated there has abruptly flowered, born fruit, or ripened in abundance, whether or not it's actually in season. Better pick it now.

There's no explanation for this anywhere, no note, no witnesses nearby, though if one looks closely at the greenery in the very center, there are two faint patches of dried blood.

[Feel free to react ICly in the comments! Otherwise, just know it's there now.]

Are any nearby farmers missing a druffalo. Or butchers. Livestock enthusiasts. Please collect it imm--[the muffled, angry sound of a very tall middle-aged woman being affectionately headbutted by an enormous bovine]

Right, gotta ask since it's been nigglin' me like a loose tooth for a bit now Inquisition, what d'you all know about dwarves? Rifters you don't get a free pass unless you fell out the skies yesterday, s'not like we're a rare sight but, y'know, 'specially since we've been here a while now and-- [there's a little edge to his voice, he coughs to clear that, can't sound like he gives a shit, just the damp and the smoke lingering yeah?] you've been with lots of dwarves. Lot of my family even!

Might get invited to Sunday dinner if you play your cards right but word to the wise, maybe don't? Politely decline. But not too polite yeah? [Don't know what you'll be served on a Darktown dinner table do you now?]

SENDER: Morrigan
RECIPIENT: Everyone
WHAT: The hunt for Flemeth begins
WHEN: Nowish
WHERE: Sundermount
NOTES: If you already signed up via the ooc post here then you're still good to go, this is to clear up some timelines and to let people who want to ICly get involved be contacted about it

To most, Ferelden simply ends with the Korcari Wilds: There is nothing beyond. The Wilds is a land of great trees, wet marshes and dangerous monsters. What more need be said? [The book closes with a snap, borrowed from a library long ago not the Inquisition or the Gallows, not even from the Court in Orlais but much older, the words of Mother Ailis whoever she was. Morrigan makes an amused noise in her throat.]

But I wonder, for those who would call themselves well-travelled with the Inquisition, would they be willing to dare to venture there? Sundermount has yielded all that it can and I must depart in hunt of prey I might only find deep in the Wilds but I would prefer not to travel alone. Do you have the stomach for it? To venture deep into the marshes where so few have ever returned from? Where we might find the Chasind Wilders so many bedtime tales are made of?

If so, speak with me and I shall tell you more of what I hunt, if not then do not trouble me. What good comes of troubling witches? [Are you going to listen Inquisition no she would guess not but it's worth a try.]
