Windy, you were right. I admit that. I am not fully versed in the operational guidelines and inner workings of the Kobold conveyance and some mistakes were made. I did underestimate the turning radius, that is for sure. And true, I did become rather giddy with the need to go faster. It may have also been a mistake to push all the pretty colored buttons at once.


The craft is now marooned and the natives are quite hostile. I believe they are coming to discuss compensations for the actions I have taken here today.

Fear not, my carefully honed negotiating tactics will set things right.

Windy, I must admit to being at a loss as to what this strange conveyance may be, but it causes quite a tingle to be sure. I don’t know what it is, or what it is to be used for, but now that I have laid eyes upon it, I cannot imagine life without such a trinket.

That formidable extension in the front looks quite bitey. The troll will get quite a nasty surprise when we roll into Nightshade Pass aboard this craft.

Quick, let us see if I have left any of those Kobold dragoons alive and see how many sacks of gold we must hand over in order to take possession. Since we have caused so much damage and loss of life, we may not be in a good bargaining position.


Windy! What is this I see before me? It’s glorious! It’s breathtaking! It’s blue!


I must take possession, regardless of cost. Well, not regardless of cost. Let’s be sensible now. I’m willing to pay a fair price, but if things get out of hand, I’m just as at ease with looting.


Are any of the Kobolds left alive to negotiate with us? If not, then Windy, you shall navigate and I shall steer.

We must tread carefully, Windy. Or in your case, hover and float carefully. Who knows what lies up ahead. I have come to distrust things that emit a glow in the dark because they are surrounded by pools of radiant light that have no source or end.


Let us approach with great care and caution. My keen senses as an adventurer are tingling. Or I might be hungry, hard to tell at this juncture.


Nope. Absolutely not. I will not open that chest. This is clearly a trap. That swirling pool of mist will extricate the life right out of us and cast us aside as desiccated husks. That is not a chest to be tampered with. I knew this was would be fraught with peril. I should have listened to the warnings of all the skeletons we crushed while trying to get in here.

Well, my little Mud Pie, it may not be a true crossroads of life, but I am curious to where these tracks may lead us. Do we go left or right? What awaits? Fortune and glory, or the slings and arrows of misfortune? It’s one of those conundrums that each Outlander must face at some pivotal juncture in their lives. The path of uncertainty stretches out before each of us, disappearing into an unknown horizon with mysteries we cannot see and comprehend until we are firmly in the midst of them. And then we must rely on our wits, and our fortitude, and soldier on in the face of come what may.

Destiny has put a choice before us, what shall it be? Our lives may never be the same from this moment forward.


Oh wait, nevermind. Dead end.

Oh my, what a glorious find! An unmanned culverin! It even comes with it’s own set of revolution disks! How wonderful they are portable.

Clearly that means we are able to take it home with us. With this in my possession, Halmar will certainly pay for all the injustice he has leveled at my door!

Now, we will need to secure some sturdy rope, perhaps a pack mule, some urchins to carry the lead shot, some kegs of powder, and a reasonably sober pirate to teach me the intricacies of igniting the fuse.

I love shopping in these quant little towns!
