Blue Mountain Logs

Emerging from Seclusion — 4/22/04

After seemingly endless turns of seasons in seclusion, Eveshka reappears in the Aerie of Blue Mountain… in time to discover that Larias is pregnant again and due to give birth soon. However, that little matters to Eveshka, who has finally come out to answer her mother’s anxious calls and inform the worried Ktai that all is indeed well. Kodachi, for her part, sinks into a state akin to Dreaming within Eveshka’s rooms, sleeping off the long and hard work of putting Eveshka’s mind at long last to rights.

A Mission to Lostholt — 5/26/04

Lord Winnowill has sent her Chosen out to contact the elfin tribes in a most urgent matter. Tsoran’s lot falls to Lostholt, where he is greeted as befits a Chosen of Blue Mountain; as Cutter is absent, he cannot deliver his message as commanded to Lostholt’s chieftain, but the wary elders of the tribe accept the message on Cutter’s behalf.

Strike One — 6/29/04

After Winnowill rudely enters the Guest Chamber within the Mountain, interrupting a private conversation between Ktai, Savah and Skywise, she alludes to the fact that ‘someone’ was rude within her home and attacked the two Chosen Savith and Kureel. In the next breath Winnowill mentions Djhala’s name in collusion with these events, and hints that he may be somehow harmed. Savah, being Djhala’s Recognized, ends up trailing after Winnowill, not quite demanding to know what has befallen the mate that is so different from her–but for whom she cares deeply nonetheless.

Battle on the Astral Plane — 10/10/04

The twins Imriel and Ryriel converge on Blue Mountain for a final battle–with a gathering of elves of many tribes who have cast aside their own differences to unite against this common enemy. Winnowill, Lord of Blue Mountain, joins forces with Savah and Suntop to confront Imriel in the astral plane while her Chosen and other elves fight with the attackers outside the Mountain. When Imriel and Ryriel are defeated at last, Winnowill emerges to heal the wounded below.

[NOTE: This is a companion log to “Battle at Blue Mountain I” and “Battle at Blue Mountain II”, from Imriel’s and Ma’at’s points of view, respectively.]

Battle at Blue Mountain (I) — 10/10/04

The twins Imriel and Ryriel converge on Blue Mountain for a final battle–with a gathering of elves of many tribes who have cast aside their own differences to unite against this common enemy. Winnowill, Lord of Blue Mountain, joins forces with Savah and Suntop to confront Imriel in the astral plane while her Chosen and other elves fight with the attackers outside the Mountain. When Imriel and Ryriel are defeated at last and slain, Suntop intercepts the souls of both twins–but while he allows the childish soul of Ryriel to be reunited with the soul of the twins’s mother, the mystic forces the soul of Imriel into himself rather than risk turning him loose within the Palace’s walls.

The Process of Healing — 10/12/04

Various elves are in the process of recovering from the battle, some still in rougher shape than others, and Winnowill is among those looking in on them. A party from the Cat Elves arrives on the scene as well.

The Strangest Meal — 10/13/04

Kureel and Strongbow not literally at each other’s throats? Kureel and Flashfire having a conversation that doesn’t spiral into insults and threats? A dinner shared among a wide variety of elves? Welcome to the Twilight Zone, Two Moons style.

A Reunion and a Warning — 10/14/04

After Ktai’s brought Flashfire to the Palace, she and the improving wolfelf get the chance to speak with Suntop and catch up on a couple things after many turns apart. A warning is shared in the process and after Suntop moves on, Flashfire and Ktai touch on a few more things.
