Arlo is just eighteen arcs old, six feet tall and weighs around one hundred and seventy pounds. His hair is dark and usually kept at an average length. His eyes are a pale, bright blue. He prefers a sturdy, serviceable wardrobe that travels well, usually opting for leather, wool or canvas weaves. And a hat. Almost always a hat.

He doesn't care for flashy accessories, but more interesting ones instead: Items that he's picked up along the road or in back alley shops such as stray feathers, scraps of leather or unusual wood, and fragments of bone that can be turned into something to strap round his wrist or string through one ear.

Arlo wears the mark of Jesine, the blessing of Nyvora on his scalp - approved here The web shaped mark is mostly concealed by his hair. But where it extends down the back of his neck, while rarely seen by others, it can sometimes be spotted glowing a faint silver beneath the moonlight.

Due to an injury healed by Cassion himself, the young man has a scar on his left shoulder that resembles a spider's web, but one that glows with a silver light. And since being marked by U'frek, he possesses a faint aura around his body that somewhat resembles steam rising from him, and also surrounding his feet. The aura isn't any single color, but resembles a borealis, or the northern lights.


In spite of an unremarkable and uneventful upbringing in Rharne; or maybe because of it, Arlo was destined to be a dreamer, a wanderer, an explorer and a seeker. It was in his nature to be from birth. And why wouldn't it be? As his mother was fond of saying, he was his father's own son. Arlo could only take her word for it, since he's never met the met the man that he knows of, and wouldn't have known it if he had.

Arlo is temperamental, just as quick to smile as scowl, to joke as to judge or insult. He is deeply curious and considers knowledge of any sort to be a more valuable currency than coin. He has a heightened imagination, and his dreams; be they daydreams or sleep filled, are vivid ones. He yearns to explore all of Idalos. But more than that, Emea.

While he's not religious in the traditional sense; he's not known for kneeling in temples or the like; Arlo is deeply spiritual. Perhaps not surprisingly, its the Immortal Cassion and the Mortalborn Jesine who have won his devotion.

In addition to sharing a heightened sense of wanderlust with the Immortal Cassion, Arlo seeks to do much more than seek his favor and model his life in much the same fashion. He yearns to understand the Immortal on a more basic, personal level by exploring the paths that Cassion has traveled before him. If Cassion spoke little of his journey into Emea, Arlo wants to discover what it was he experienced there and never spoke of, firsthand.

His devotion to the Mortalborn Jesine is a result of his natural inclinations, his desire to walk Emea, explore its layers and do her work; combined with the knowledge that it is only through her, and by her grace that he can go where Cassion went before him.


Arlo's style of devotion, particularly in relation to Cassion, is somewhat unconventional. Knowing that his Immortal of choice favors travel and exploration, and a fondness for odds and ends picked up along the way, Arlo chooses to honor Cassion by catering to the preferences that both he and the Immortal share.

During his travels, he might leave a simple meal cooked over a campfire just off the path, balanced on top of a small rock shrine for another traveler, perhaps even Cassion to find. Instead, he might leave behind an interesting trinket or small, useful object that he's picked up along the way, dangling from a branch hanging over a seldom traveled path for another to happen across and take for themselves. All in Cassion's name.

As for Jesine, having been recognized and marked by the Mortalborn already, Arlo's devotions are somewhat more conventional, according to what she desires and expects from her followers, both in Emea and elsewhere.

Arlo Creede

Postby Arlo Creede » Wed Jan 11, 2017 6:09 pm

"Not all those who wander are lost."
J.R.R. Tolken


Arlo's upbringing on the outskirts of Rharne was fairly uneventful. His mother Nella was unwed and just seventeen when she met a man who was just passing through on his way to somewhere else. Nella was young, naive and impressionable with stars in her eyes, and the traveler was older, charming and worldly. The two carried on a brief affair while he was there. But by the time she discovered she was with child, he was gone again, on to the next place without a word or a farewell.

Nella's heart was broken. But she was young and pretty, and before giving birth to her son, she was married to another older man who himself owned a small farm on the outskirts of Rharne. Nella's new husband wasn't as charming, clever or handsome as her traveler. Jonas Creede was solemn and dull at times, but also kind and when Arlo was born, he was happy to raise the boy as his own.

From his earliest arcs, much to Jonas' disappointment, it was clear that Arlo had no interest in farming. He was temperamental, impulsive and easily distracted by visions of adventure and exploration. He was a dreamer, and both his day and nighttime dreams were vivid ones. He faithfully recorded his sleeping dreams in his journal in detail, particularly those related to Cassion. He was convinced that there were clues in those, or even messages that needed deciphering. Arlo longed to explore the world beyond Rharne, even beyond Idalos, and his fascination with Emea was such that Jonas' at least thought it unhealthy. For reasons she kept to herself, Nella quietly approved and in her son, saw glimpses of her traveler.

He'd give her plenty of glimpses, and Jonas, more than a few headaches. He was daring from a very young age. Fascinated with high places or those where no sane adult would try to go, when he was no more than three, his parents found him at the top of a tall spindly tree that swayed this way and that with the wind. No one could say how he got up there, or down, even though they'd watched him do it as he tumbled and turned apparently at will through the thin branches during his descent.

When he was only seven arcs old, Arlo wandered off into the nearby woods and failed to return before nightfall. His mother worried and Jonas organized a group of men to help find him. But after several trials had passed they had all come to fear the worst. It was only then, after three trials, that Arlo came wandering back, wondering what all the fuss was about.

He'd become lost some time after he'd entered the woods, but instead of being as afraid as he ought to have been he'd managed to find shelter during the night and even learned to build a fire to keep warm by. A nest full of unhatched eggs had kept him fed and eventually, following a small stream to the edge of the woods had led to a dirt path that led towards home.

It was on that path that a peddler's cart happened across him and picked him up. The old man driving the cart was friendly and amused by the boy's tales of his grand adventure in the wilderness. The peddler drove him home to his parents, regardless, knowing they'd be worried. But before he let Arlo off the cart, he handed him a generous gift. It was a thick, leather bound book of maps, all the maps of Idalos and it had been well used. But Arlo didn't care if it was old or new, he'd spend breaks upon breaks after that, for arcs, pouring over those maps and plotting out where he'd go when he finally left home.

Arlo became curious about the Immortals at an early age, but not surprisingly his interest was primarily focused on Cassion. He learned everything he could about him, and became fascinated by the time that the elusive Immortal had spent in Emea. It was logical then that he would also develop a fascination with the Mortalborn Jesine and her realm. And as a result, as he grew he became a follower and devotee to both.

It would come as no real surprise then, when one morning Nella and Jonas woke to find him gone and only a note of farewell left behind, shortly after his sixteenth arc celebration. Arlo's sense of wanderlust had finally gotten the better of him, and he meant to travel and explore the paths that Cassion had taken before him, and the realm that Jesine called hers. Perhaps as a way to serve and honor both Immortal and the Mortalborn. But also, he believed, as a way of worship.

Mark Backstory

Traveling on the road between cities and villages often meant sleeping and eating out in the open. But Arlo was suited to life in the outdoors, and often preferred it. His stepfather Jonas had given him a sturdy mare before he'd left home, and often she was the only company he had. The young man didn't mind though and one trial, like others before it, he'd stopped to rest just off the path where he'd built a small fire and make himself a meal out of a small rabbit he'd snared earlier, and some root vegetables he'd pulled from the ground.

As he'd recall later, it was springtime and the sunlight was golden and warm. The rabbit on the spit smelled good, and it was almost done when another traveler happened by and paused to speak with him. The man, tall and well built, didn't supply his name, not at first. But Arlo had been on the road several trials by then and had scarcely seen anyone else, so he asked him if he was hungry, and if he cared to share a small meal. It was his way, nonetheless, to share what he had with other travelers.

They spoke for a while, the two of them, and the man told Arlo tales of his travels all over Idalos. In turn, Arlo drank each of the stories in, but having left home so recently, he had very few stories of his own to share. But each location the man mentioned, he showed Arlo in his own book full of maps and told him of his adventures and some of them, misadventures. In turn, he was impressed by the ease with which Arlo had offered a spot by the fire and something to eat.

It was the younger man's turn to explain why he did it. A fellow traveler could as easily be the Immortal Cassion as not, and it wasn't only a sense of hospitality that made him do it. It was his own way of worship. The man seemed impressed, or amused and Arlo couldn't rightly say which. But after a time, the man stood, thanked him for the meal and declared that he'd be on his way. But as he walked away, Arlo called after him. "Hey mister!" he said. "You didn't tell me your name."

"It's Cassion," the man, having revealed himself as the Immortal himself had said. "And as worship goes, it wasn't bad. Though the rabbit could have used a little salt." He grinned, and then walked away.

Arlo had been stunned, but not for long as the realization hit him. And so he'd leaped up from where he'd been sitting, meaning to go after the Immortal. "Hey, wait!" But he stumbled and fell forward, his feet having tangled up in something as he'd stood up. Rolling over, blinking his eyes, he rubbed his shoulder and shivered. Confused, he suddenly realized that it was cold. The bitter cold of winter and there was snow on the ground. The campfire he'd built had been reduced to embers and they were glowing in the darkness. It wasn't springtime at all, it wasn't warm, and it wasn't the middle of the trial, but that gray time between darkness and light.

Just as he sat up, frowning in confusion, he heard the unmistakable sound of feminine laughter and he looked up, more confused than ever. "My goodness you sleep soundly. I thought you'd never wake up. You should take care out here, away from civilization. A bear could have lumbered in and devoured you, with you none the wiser." She was a young looking woman, with blonde hair that looked mussed from sleep. And Arlo knew right away who she was. The mortalborn Jesine. And he knew he'd been dreaming. All of it. The warm trial by the road, the smell of the rabbit cooking. The traveler. Cassion. All of it was a dream. But this wasn't.

He stumbled to his feet, looking on in awe. "You're..." The woman laughed again and shook her head. "Of course I am." Arlo thought on that a moment, frowning in concentration and then said "But Cassion, that was..." Jesine stopped him with a smile and a wave of her hand. "That was me too," she said. "I'm sorry to have tricked you Arlo. But there's a reason your dream was so vivid. So much more than ever before. That was lucid dreaming," she explained, "and you seem to have taken to it like a duck to water."

He was about to ask another question, and then another when she stopped him. "I've been watching you Arlo, and I've wondered if you've enough devotion to spare for the both of us. I believe that you do. So I've left you a gift. Go, follow him. Follow me, and do my work while you're at it. But don't disappoint me," she said, and with a warning that she'd be watching him to make sure he was as deserving as she believed he was, she was gone, just like the traveler before her.

Grandmaster Capstones

Acrobatics : Arlo has reached a pinnacle of acrobatics that appear almost magical. Arlo remains in the air for five-eight trills longer than anyone else who leaps at his height and has the improbable ability of perfect balance in the air, executing perfect turns, spins, and cartwheels in mind-bending feats of acrobatics.

Approval here
Storytelling : Captivate: When using this ability, Arlo is able to manipulate the emotions of those who listen to his stories. As he speaks, telling the story, those around him are compelled to listen, to focus. This means that they are drawn in to the story he tells and this distracts them from whatever they were feeling / doing previously. He doesn't instill emotions into others, but he draws their focus to the story and distracts them from what was already happening. Thus, he gets their attention and keeps it for the duration of the story, which might be enough time for an argument to subside, anger to subdue or for cooler heads to prevail.

Loot - Chest & Contents - four statues, a very old and fragile map, an equally old and fragile journal and a decayed pile of cloth that used to be robes.
Loot - A silver locket with a faded painting on one side. A pair of scissors that are small and neat, are always sharp, never blunting and are able to cut things that would normally take a tool much bigger to cut. A small bag of old pirate coins with a value of 200gn (added to ledger). A preserved chicken leg. It's a wooden one, carved to look like a chicken leg. It appears to be a chicken-sized peg leg. When he holds it, Arlo feels warm, like he's wrapped in a blanket. Asingle gold earring, recognizable by pirates and might be used to get him out of trouble or bartered for a pirate favour. A treasure map. The X is in the Scalvoris Mountains. One of his fingernails turns black, like he's had an injury. From now on, that black fingernail can be tapped, once a trial, and it will give out a very gentle glow - like, one candle. A book of riddles. A small piece of parchment which, it turns out, is a map of the surrounding area. It is always a map of the surrounding area, no matter where in the world he is as it changes with her. A small statue of a flunny. It is of masterwork standard and seems to follow him with its eyes. A small pirate coin. Whilst they are in proximity of another person with a coin like it (in the same room, line of sight etc), they are able to send one telepathic message. It works once a trial. Arlo gains a favour from pirate ghosts. Holding the pirate coin above, he can make himself invisible to nearby spirits or souls for 1 break per trial
Loot - U'frek's Shell. A small shell gifted to you by U'frek as a memento of the time you aided him. It's used it's power, but keeps a slight glow to it.
Schubert's Statue: Although yours was used up, in your belongings when you get back you find a small, masterwork statue of Schubert. He's smiling and giving you a thumbs up.
Arlo's Book of Dreams: A small book which has in it images from your dreams. Also, the images from the puzzles in the picture frames you solved.
The Silence Within Secret Objective Unlocked. For following instructions to the letter, Arlo has been gifted a masterwork sword. It's weighted perfectly for him.
Loot - +1 journal from Cassion. It appears to be just a normal, blank journal. However, when it is full, another one will appear - only so long as you write stories in it. (ie: if you use it for shopping lists, etc, it's just a journal)
+1 Nightglow Gem Spyglass as promised in this post by U'frek
+1 Cassion's Gem. A swirling blue and green gem, with wisp-like clouds in it. This gem is an artifact that was sought by U'frek, Ethelynda and Faldrun. It’s mystical powers are still a mystery. Why the Immortal’s desired this artifact has not been revealed at this time. This is simply your ticket into the next stage of their grand game. The gem is glittering and beautiful ~ every now and then the clouds form words written in Ancient.
Gift - Chest, scribe's kit, notebooks, blankets
Loot - +4 longswords, +2 bows
Gifts - 2 x Books, 1 x hat, 1 x carving, shell
Tier 1 Signature Item - Ring
This will be a plain gold ring with the Sevrath Favored ability of Prison with the same restrictions etc.
Prison: An offensive/defensive ability that is used to trap the opponent or shield the character. Pushing energy into the earth, the character is able to form sudden traps from dirt and stone, quickly ensnaring the opponent in a prison of soil and rock. Defensively, the character is able to draw the earth around them, cocooning in thick, almost impenetrable layers of earth and stone. This ability works well only if the user practices. Otherwise, the character cannot hold the structure for more than a few seconds, they cannot extend it for more than a few feet, and they will become exhausted from trying to exert energy to correct themselves.
Loot - Gypsy Jewel, Private Eye
Gift -
+1 North Pointing Gem
+1 Glowing Staff
+5 Books of Travelers' Tales
+1 copy of "Geoupagus & The Two Naughty Granitees"
+1 Quill of Engraving
+1 Duplicity Suit
+1 Cloak of Hiding
RIng of Earth: Tier reward for Renown Tier 1.
He came from the West: In your belongings you find a small silver coin with an intricately carved W on it.
Silver From The West: You have a small silver necklace with a beautifully carved silver pendant, as described by Arlo. It's exquisite.
Ilaren's Cup:A plain pewter mug, similar to any other common mug found in the average tavern all over Idalos. No doubt all had sipped from these vessels before. Even in the waking, this is no ordinary vessel. When used, although it saves one from inebriation, it imparts an even stronger thirst for the alcohol imbibed. Used without moderation, it can easily addict the user to the very drink they sought to save themselves from. This only works with Arlo and only with non-magical / non-alchemical alcohol.
Delroth's Charms: The remaining charms on the necklace provide Arlo with a one-time boost to either running or flight. When used, if his skill is novice, it moves to competent, competent to expert etc. It will last for one break and then his skill returns to normal.
He asked good questions: A bonus +3 XP to either your interrogation or investigation skill.
Respect is necessary: A bonus of + 3 knowledge to either etiquette or leadership
Good questions 2: A bonus +2 XP to either your interrogation or investigation skill.
The Book of My Life: Dreamers up and down Idalos remember seeing snippets of your exploits throughout this series of threads. Many are inspired to write tales of these dreams. They also dream of the specifics of what you expanded on +10 renown
Luminescent Tear: Your luminescent tear reverberates with the echoes of the Leviathan. Your Luminescent Tear allows you to travel instantaneously to any place Arlo has been before within the city he is located in. He may take at least one passenger if they are held, after which the item no longer functions. This ‘anywhere in the city’ can be used in any city or any structure.
Edasha's Gift ~ a metal-wrought, jewel-encrusted amaryllis, symbolising worth beyond beauty: This too maintains a taste of Edasha's touch upon it in the waking world. Once only, Arlo is granted the ability to see through the eyes of another person. This ability can be activated if he has secured uninterrupted eye contact with the individual for at least five trills, and is holding the Edasha-granted item - the ability may be used any time within that same trial. Using this ability incapacitates Arlo as he moves into a trance-like state where he is unable to see his surroundings - only what his target is seeing. This makes using the ability when in the presence of others somewhat risky. The target does not lose their own sight when the ability is activated. This lasts for one break and my be used once only before the item loses power.
Gold and Seeds From Delroth's challenge. Some bird seed and tiny bits of gold. Value at about 10gn, nothing remarkable
Cassion's FeatherA single pale white feather will be left behind when Arlo awakens. He may utilize this as an additional Souvenir as noted in the Cassion abilities that does NOT count against his limit.

Blessings & Marks

Abilities : Admired (Starter Mark)
Nyvora - Sanctuary
Gives the user the ability to protect their own dreams and anyone involved in them from Kielik's influence (Nightmares), and most native predators of Emea. The protection extends to all other individuals that should chance upon the dream, though the marked is at liberty to shut out or expel unwanted visitors at their discretion. Only those possessing a mark from Kielik of a higher caliber than the dreamer's Nyvora level, particularly potent entities in Emea or Kielik himself can override this protection. Dream threads can only be marked as "closed" if started by a PC with this ability.

Nyvora - 50+ Devotion - Dream Seeker
Anyone known to the blessed individual in the living world can be tracked down in Emea. Once found, the seeker has the ability to enter their dream, alter the dreamer's dreamscape subtly and guide them into a state of lucid dreaming, where interactions, conversations, and the dream itself will be remembered by the dreamer. With this power comes the ability to stop outsiders from entering the same dream (as if the other dreamer had also possessed the Sanctuary ability), making it a secure place to share information.

Nyvora - 99+ Devotion - Silent Guardian
Those blessed and trusted by Jesine are assigned a Fairy (a personal NPC with no upkeep requirement) that, in the world of Idalos, can only be seen by those marked with Nyvora but will follow the marked even in their sleep. While awake, the marked individual can close their eyes and control the movements of this Fairy, seeing through its eyes and moving without moving. The Fairy, much like a ghost, can do no physical damage in the living world, but can be useful for investigative purposes and as an additional set of eyes on the lookout for danger, granting them the benefit of the Fairy's own perceptive skill levels. The Fairy, unlike the marked, is immediately aware of the presence and influence of Kielik and his marked. While in the waking world, the Fairy communicates with their marked protégé empathically, though they can be conversed with like any other creature when they dream in Emea.

Trusted: here
As protégés of Jesine, blessed individuals enjoy a level of protection that others don't when they Dreamwalk deeper into Emea itself, past the layer of dreams. When granted this ability, marked individuals will have a built-in sense of direction, allowing them to always know how to return to the dream they originally left from to prevent them from getting lost in Emea. When and if they encounter other static locations within Emea, they'll intuitively know how to find their way back to them the next time they Dreamwalk.
Knowledge : Nyvora
Nyvora: Tying dreams together
Nyvora: Fairy: Lyova
Nyvora: Observe and let Dreamers Dream
Nyvora: How to silently converse with your fairy companion
Nyvora (Sanctuary): Allows you to expel unwanted nightmares from your dream
Nyvora: Ability: Silent Guardian
Nyvora: Ability: Pathfinder

NPCs : Lyova
Race: Fairy
Skills: 30 Detection, 25 Flying, 25 Intelligence, 10 Stealth, 10 Acrobatics
Appearence: Perhaps unexpected for a fairy, Lyova's appearence resembles that of an aquatic humanoid. A large head to crown a small and wispy body with disproportionally large, twinkling eyes that reflect the creature's innate curiousity. From head to toe, she's barely five inches tall with the head making up for a third of her height and the rest of the body flowing behind limply as she moves in an ethereal form of magical flight, without wings or obvious support to keep it airborne. Rather, it seems to swim through the air, its entire lower body swaying like a rear fin in a soft current. Its skin is a soft, translucent blue---doing very little to contain the swirling lights within it that give it a soothing glow.
Personality: Enthusiastic and playful, Lyova is a ball of energy and spirit. She's very sensitive to her charge's emotional currents and is greatly concerned with their thoughts, determined to nurture Arlo's inner child.
Relationship to PC: Guardian
Anything: She is assigned to Arlo as a Guardian by virtue of his Nyvora mark, and cannot be seen by anyone who does not also possess it unless in a Dreamscape, where she may or may not choose to make her presence known. Additionally, she does not have a native language of her own, but shares all the language proficiencies of the Marked she is tasked with protecting.


Trademark ability as granted by Nyvora, enabling her charge to merge with her senses and control her movements directly as a sort of remote viewing, taking advantage of her ability to move where her charge cannot. She can only move within the same city as her charge, however, without overextending and cancelling the ability automatically. (This ability unlocks once "Silent Guardian" has been acquired with sufficient Devotion.)

Her primary means for communication in Idalos, limited to the Marked. While she can perceive the world (that cannot perceive her, in turn), she cannot interact with it in any way nor utilize any physical means of communication. As such, she communicates solely through telepathic and empathic bursts to her charge, broadcasting thoughts, emotions and images, often in short messages at a time. This restriction applies only in Idalos. In Emea, she may speak normally, in addition to telempathic communication.

As a non-physical creature, she is not physically limited by objects or obstacles in Idalos and may freely pass through solid objects and even creatures and humanoids. She cannot physically interact with anything while in Idalos. Physical creatures and humanoids may feel a pleasant tickle when she passes through them, but that is the extent of her influence on Idalos.

Note: This NPC may benefit from normal rules for Personal NPCs in increasing her Skills every season, but the PC does not need to pay upkeep for it. It is loyal to the PC and will stay with it for as long as it possesses the Nyvora mark.

Abilities : 
Four Pointed Star (Minor) Gained here
Activation of this skill will cause a silvery aurora to rise from the user upward to the sky. This will highlight certain stars in the sky that appoint the directions of a compass. This will only work at night time.

Wave Crash (Minor) here
This ability allows the user to summon a 15' (4.6m) wave in one direction and can choose the time the wave crashes. The user must rest for a few trials afterward before attempting to use the ability again. At Adored, this ability can create a wave as high as 25' (7.7m) and at Exalted, 100' (30m).

Seafarer Skills I here
Add an extra three skill points to one of the following skills: Navigation, Seafaring, Swimming or Ship Building.

Sliding Current (MinorGained here
The ability allows the user to manipulate a small area of water to move at running pace, the size of a large ship. This ability is particularly useful in calm winds. The ability will work for a full trial. The ability can also be cast on bodies of water of other ships, given they are within 400' (121m), to speed them up, slow them down and if there is little wind, send them backward. This is especially useful during pursuits. This can be used once a trial.

Healing Aurora (Minor) Gained here
The user who uses this ability will find a blue aurora streaming out from their body to encompass, either an individual in need of healing. The aurora will surround the individual and slowly heal minor wounds. The same ability can be used to repair small holes in the ships hull. This can be taxing on the user, making them feel drowsy after use.
Knowledge : 
Mark Abilities
Koriel ability: Create a wave of up to 15 foot, but it's tiring.

Abilities : Favored
Blood Son: The first ability in Sojourn comes with the blood that is shared of Cassion. The marked is forever changed, transformed a small measure divine by the Immortal’s own blood and commitment. The blooded of Cassion find they are no longer satiated by stagnancy. To be a chosen of Cassion is to have your home always on the horizon. Staying longer than a single Arc in any one city will impart a thorough sense of lethargy and sap the health of the Sojourner until they have finally moved on. They must be away from the location longer than they stayed in order to build a tolerance once more. The Blooded of Cassion are vibrant people flowing with life. Each is gifted with enormous appetites and the ability to subsist on substandard food. So long as it is edible, they can thrive upon it. Each one heals half again as fast as another member of their race and can often push the limits of the endurance that a member of their species might have. By virtue of their divine nature, Sojourners can always recognize each other on sight and any object or person touched by Cassion.

Journey's Meal:: A Sojourner must prepare many meals on the road between adventures. Most often, they are accompanied by others. This ability can only be used once a trial but allows any meal prepared for a Sojourner to satiate both themselves and their companions, no matter how little there was to prepare in the first place. In order to work, the Sojourner must do their best to make the meal as appetizing and filling as they have the material to provide. This Meal can feed the Sojourner and up to three other companions (including animals). Those who eat the meal will find the taste vastly improved, so long as the Sojourner explains either the origin or the process of making such food available as they are enjoying it.

Traveler's Skills 1:: Add an extra three skill points to one of the following skills: Discipline, Fieldcraft, Sailing, Storytelling, Cooking, or Navigation. These points can exceed the 100 point limit.

Cassion Compass: Gained via Devotion: When first marked, every Sojourner receives a small gold compass. This compass does not point the way North as most compasses might, but instead will point the direction to a place of the Sojourner’s choosing. In order to apply, they must have visited this place before in a manner that allowed them to experience the journey there. Teleportation will not count as a justifiable way to input a destination. The Sojourner can impart this compass to others for use to navigate to the location of their choosing and once they have reached the destination, the compass will be instantly transported back to the Sojourner’s person. This compass cannot be lost in any way. If destroyed or stolen, it will take five trials to return, whole, to the possession of the marked.

Road-Kissed: Gained via Devotion: Cassion’s chosen cannot help but choose the life of the road. It calls to them, commands them march along it. But this is no curse, as the road cares for the chosen who tend and travel it. Those with this ability often have a much easier journey than those who do not. Inclement weather, obstacles, dangers, these all still exist on the road but tend to be much less disastrous to the marked if they were not expecting to encounter them. Travel time for the marked is reduced by 25% as they naturally know the fastest paths and shortcuts to reach their destination. This ability does not apply to ‘discovering’ hidden ways into restricted areas, but simply allows the marked to naturally take the quickest un-obscured path between any two points they are traveling towards.

Safe Camp: Gained via Devotion: When one takes camp in the wilderness, they take risk. Dangers lurk when the traveler is in stasis and many expeditions have ended with ambush in the dark of night. Safe Camp is an ability Cassion allows his followers during such a time to avoid some of the worst of what untamed Idalos has to offer. Any camp can be deemed, ‘safe’, but only a single camp for a trial. The Sojourner marks the edges of the camp with drops of his own blood, naturally warding away predators and creatures who might prowl through the night. Marking an entrance, a Sojourner opens a door to a comfortable extra-dimensional space with a warm roaring fire in the hearth that will burn all eve if willed to. This room often changes depending on the area the Sojourner is in, naturally blending with local customs of comfort and style. No object from this room can be taken from the inside as it exists only as a respite for the weary. This ability is only available if the Sojourner takes the time to set up camp, and cannot be used instantly in a combat situation to avoid harm or escape to an extra-dimensional space. This space, while comfortable and roomy enough for a traveler, a few companions, and even their mount, holds no food or other comforts save those that they might need to enjoy a restful evening. A side effect of the ability is that it naturally draws non-aggressive travelers to the location, a beacon for any and all who walk the road to their own ends, but do not seek the end of others they may meet. A Sojourner is not permitted to refused entrance or rest to any who come, even if that means they must sleep on the hard floor outside. Any outsiders seeking to enter the extra-dimensional space for a hostile or aggressive purpose will find themselves in the material space taken up by the camp, not allowed into the space created by the Sojourner. Should the entrance to the space be discovered and destroyed, the Sojourner and all interred companions are transported back to the material space occupied by the Camp.

Souvenir: Gained through RP: A Souvenir is a piece of travel, a memory attributed to an object of importance. Cassion travels with many, tangled in his hair. A souvenir can be almost any item, but it must have great importance to a particularly impactful event or accomplishment that the marked has achieved. Dedicated in such a way, it gains a supernatural power that can be used by any who possess it at the time. Only one Souvenir can be utilized at first mark, but an additional souvenir can be collected and dedicated at each level of mark thereafter. Should a souvenir be destroyed or stolen, the marked will need to dedicate another to a different memory, or track down the thief responsible. The power of the Souvenir tends to be variable, depending on the nature of the object and what memory it is associated with. When achieving this ability, you may submit a suggestion to the PSF. Be sure to explain the object’s importance as well. These abilities function like minor magical effects, but ones that can be quite useful. Boots that stride upon calm water, dedicated from an adventure set in the shoals and shallows of a reef, or perhaps a blade that always burns hot with the heat of a desert sun. Other possible examples might be a bone bead that renders you untrackable to a particular beast of scent, or a shell by which you can draw a fresh breath every two breaks, rather than needing to breathe the air around you. A Souvenir must have a story attached that explains the effect it provides. At this level, the effects can be quite useful, but are often not astounding.

ScarTale: Gained through RP: An Adventurer can tell a story by every scar they have. Each one is earned. A Sojourner can invoke a scar’s story by displaying it proudly and explaining the circumstances by which they received it. Doing so grants them an innate resistance to being injured by the same means. Against an adversary, a Sojourner may find that their skin is resilient and tough to the blades of this particular foe, netting only shallow wounds as the opponent must redouble efforts to hurt them in such a way again. Often the invocation of this ability is conditional on when the situation arises. There must be at least one witness to the story as it is told and the scar must be clearly visible. No small nicks or minor injuries will apply. A ScarTale is the story of a deep mark earned by the adventurer. The story itself resents being replaced and will shield the user against a similar injury occurring. While not a perfect defense, it can be remarkably strong. A Sojourner cannot lie about how they received their injury, but even dishonorable or embarrassing stories have their place if the wound is prominent enough. Once invoked, the protection can last for the better part of a break. These bonuses do not stack. If you were wounded twice by an adversary, you are not double impervious to them, only one story per cause of damage can be invoked at once.

Rumor Mill: Gained through RP: Names hold power. In the language of stories, names are an encoded secret language that pass through tale to tale, even if that name is not openly spoken. Upon achieving this ability, a Sojourner may know deeds and stories of those they meet, even without hearing about it themselves. Upon hearing the name of another, the Sojourner may choose to ask the player or the storyteller for the three to five most prominent things that individual is known for. So long as the deed is associated with them and has been spoken about between more than three people, the Sojourner instantly becomes aware of the story, the general details, and the magnitude of its impact (how far it might have spread by word of mouth). This allows a Sojourner to know when someone gives them a false name, as no such trigger occurs, and also allows them a measure of knowledge about the people they associate with. The name does not have to be given willingly, but it must be spoken by the owner’s own voice or written in their own script for this ability to work..
Dust Eater: Often, famine can sweep the land. Food will fall away, herds will travel to distant pastures, and even the insects will dry up and perish. In times of starvation it is the fate of most to die. But to the god of Hunger, no such thing will slay his chosen. Dust Eater is an ability that allows a Sojourner to subsist on material that would normally give no nutritious value. Dirt, small stones, bones, and discarded clothing can all be consumed by the Sojourner without ill effect. They will draw sustenance from these materials without any internal difficulties processing. Perhaps most unfortunate, however, is that Cassion imparts no balm for this. All things consumed taste like the material they are, making these starvation meals ruinous to consume, almost torturous, if necessary. The item must be deliberately recognized as one to be consumed using this ability, allowing a Sojourner to eat deadly poison with no effect, but only if they deliberately meant to eat the deadly poison in the first place.

Memorabilia: A Memorabilia is an evolution of the Souvenir. So important is the Memorabilia that it becomes vital to the mark itself. To lose ones Memorabilia is to lose access to the activated abilities of this mark tier. While new Memorabilia can be dedicated, it is often difficult to find something that holds the same kind of emotional resonance and importance on the fly. Memorabilia is similar to a Souvenir in that its power is variable. Although while a Souvenir is fairly minor in effect, a Memorablia has a moderate effect. The Souvenir achieved in the first mark can be upgraded into Memorabilia, either gaining a new minor ability or losing its minor in exchange for a moderate, but the story must be sufficiently impactful to apply. A Sojourner who leads a boring or uninteresting life will find they have few things by which to dedicate into these items. Cassion craves risk and adventure and one who follows such example will have no trouble finding suitable things. Moderate abilities might be classified as a necklace of gathered pearls that imparts the ability to breathe beneath the waves, or a burned stave that renders the user immune to smoke inhalation or even with extreme resistance to being burned. These items tell a story and their ability manifests by way of that story. Supernaturally enhanced, the objects are unnaturally resilient, but still able to be borrowed, used by another, and even stolen. If stolen, a Memorabilia does not impart this mark’s abilities on the thief, but they do have possession of the magical item in question.

Travelers Skills II: Add an extra six skill points to one of the following skills: Discipline, Fieldcraft, Sailing, Storytelling Cooking, or Navigation. These points can exceed the 100 point limit

A universal tongue is one of hunger. All living beings consume to survive and most take great gusto in consuming the delicious. Cassion, a god of Hunger, knows well this link between all and imparts an ability on his chosen to encourage that link, grow it, and exploit it. When a Sojourner prepares a feast (5 or more participants), they can choose to impart this ability. While enough food must be prepared, realistically, for everyone to eat to their fill, the meal will be remarkably delicious. Regardless of the cook’s skill, the food speaks for itself. Much like the previous ability involving meals, the user of this power must describe the food’s origin or their preparation of it, allowing the story to take shape and augment what they have prepared. While dining, any who partake in the feast will be unable to directly lie to the Sojourner. While they can avoid answering questions, they are compelled to remain honest unless a power is used at a higher tier of mark. Moreso, all who eat at the Sojourner’s table will instantly feel that the host is one who can be trusted, that all at the table can be trusted, and be drawn to speak their deepest and most forbidden secrets. While this does not force them to, they do feel compelled to be honest, open, and vulnerable in front of everyone at the table. The Cassion Feast imparts a desire for comradeship, closeness, friendship, and understanding. So long as all participants are engaging in the meal, everyone will understand the words of the others as though spoken in their own native tongue. A Cassion Feast can only be prepared twice per cycle.Gained here

Flesh Son
The Blood pounding in the Sojourner’s veins grows strength at this level. Once again they change. Any natural infirmity they were born with or damaging imperfection is wiped away in a single evening of agonizing transformation. So long as the Sojourner bares the first mark of Cassion, this infirmity will never return. Their appetites become voracious and they are drawn increasingly more to dangerous circumstances and adventures. A Sojourner’s natural strength and endurance are always half again as good as it should be for those of their skill level and species and they find their skin more resilient to being cut and their bones less prone to breaking. A Sojourner at this state can naturally feel manifestations of ether, like static electricity, and while it may not pinpoint a may allow them to know a mage is casting in the area. They say that the appetites of a Sojourner are boundless, and many Sojourners become hedonists for a time, lost to the sensation of more. A Sojourner with this ability can eat without end, but will only benefit from a full meal, never more. This can sometimes be a curse as a Sojourner will devour all their supplies a few days into the journey and must scrounge for more along the way. Gained here

Misc : Following Global End Game:
The Shattering:
The death of this White Eagle has lasting effects for Arlo and all other Sojourners globally. For the remainder of this Arc, Arlo will have intensely vivid dreams of the White Eagle that was slain. You are welcome to be open with your interpretation of how these dreams manifest, but they will include certain key details. Ikimi was the name of the woman who died in that chair when Cassion had left her, the fourth most recent Champion of Cassion. She was a pirate, a scourge along the sea, and her flagship The Gull, struck terror into the hearts of merchants throughout the sea. Several times she and her fleet sacked coastal cities, with the audacity to do so to Scalvoris and Rynmere both. She spared the third most recent Champion of Cassion’s life as a child after killing those aboard her ship, and she eventually grew to defeat Ikimi in combat before Ikimi became a White Eagle of Cassion’s. Cassion does not discern between hero or villain, only those who live lives emboldened and emphasized by narrative and story. If this causes some unrest in Arlo, I invite you to play that out. The shattering was like a physical blow to Arlo, but one that is not reflected on his body. His psyche will feel the aftermath for as long as he dreams of Ikimi. You are welcome to interpret how that manifests...I only invite you TO interpret it.
