Time to gamble, friends.

Well, not for Cold Hands, but I am with you in the gambling spirit.

Just need to move this scene along a bit and then get Cold Hands in the ring.
Meanwhile Ydylis will be quite straightforward to add once ready.
Still need to nudge to other players to get to a point where the characters have a good in.

I hope you enjoy your convention and I hope your workplace isn't too inconvenienced by its tax problem.

Related, the ship needs a tax auditor, they are a much feared class amongst pirates one and all.

Update in the next day or so; it's just one fuckin' thing after another lately.
Also need to tweak some sheets and nudge some other folks.

Just popping to say hi, I'm still invested! Ydylis's sheet is not meant to make a fighter, so hopefully that makes combat go a little quicker. (I have fun reading and writing combat but want to try something different with this character.) Her retainer's open to take any shape Excession would deem useful for the story.

If I've read Ydylis's sheet right, her role in the group will be administration, navigation, market research, and any social interaction done away from a negotiating table, yes?

If so, I imagine Ydylis would have been one of the first people Chwegwn reached out to, offering her ample financial support in exchange for her talents.

Little tidbit; there are currently 10 living Djukanim.

Imperus, natch.
Manadalthraxus, of course.
Alexander, King of the Iron Fist.
Great Healer Zyeka, also called Monarch of Healers though they don't like that at all.
Tristan, King of Assassins,
Amelia, Queen of Architects.
Yarrow, no title yet earned, reputedly an excellent artist.
Saradel, no title yet earned, known to be an excellent pilot.
Ventriss The Hermit, whereabouts unknown, infamous for trying to reject their heritage.
Eloise, Imperus' granddaughter, aged five.

Why don't they like that?

Every Djuka ends up the exemplar of some field, and people give them a title like 'king of x'. Not every Djuka likes the implied rule and responsibility.
Zyeka, it's rumoured, was being groomed to succeed Imperus but rejected that in favour of healing people. Even now they sort of wander around semi-anonymously giving out medical care, refusing payment.
Another few years and they'll have a cult to rival Imperus' own.
One way that they're alike is that Imperus accepts, or even pursues, the mantle of rulership but famously hates being worshipped. This hasn't stopped the formation of two thriving cults to Imperus, one of which has interpreted some prehistoric scripture in such a way as to believe the highest act of devotion to Imperus is to try and slay Them. Every few months someone breaks into the audience chamber at the Ashen Palace with a gun or explosives or a magic spear and is promptly dogpiled by bodyguards.
One might imagine Zyeka preferred to avoid that kind of regard.

Sounds about right. She could help supply bargaining chips for Captain Chwegwn, but she does not want to be a visible face at the negotiating table or risk turning herself into a target. Ydylis may be too proud to admit it, but financial support would be hard to pass up in her current situation.

Her navigation skill also does not have a specialty in the World Without Sun, if @Benzaiten's yew necromancer decides to go that route.

Convention done, game run with dubious success, mental bandwidth freed.

You would think after all these years I'd stop being surprised by how readily players will sell out when an antagonist offers them their lives in exchange for the highest ranking character in the party, and yet.
