Still dusty from their tour of duty through the Silverwastes, the Wardens and Support Staff of the Right Hand saw purification and relaxation in the Zelwchor Hot Springs, of course accompanied by their brilliant liaisons of the Archedyne Metatechnics Krewe. Armored leaves, armor and magitech gizmos were quickly exchanged for bare bark, skimpy foliage and water-proof magitech gizmos.
The visitors spend some time in much-deserved leisure – frolicking, bathing, and a quaint few rounds of ‘Melo Medies’, the game where one blindfolded individual seeks out his peers by calling out loud. Of course there was the ample dose of cheating, as contestants fell to misuse of multi-spectrum-analyzers and mesmeric doppelgangers. The Asuran riddles that followed proved to be a little -too- challenging for most, however
Once back in Cathal, the Wardens were met with no less than four fresh new recruits, among which a potent Mesmer, a gifted Gardener with Mending aspirations, and a rather dashing Dreamcaster. Sprout and Castanea rounded the guests and recruits up into teams for their introduction to the practical usage of shields and deflection-magic ..by having each team bombard the other with near-rotten eggs.
A foul odor will surely linger over Cathal for at least a day – but it was worth the stench and yolk-stained leaves, as each group displayed both a sense of strategy and team-spirit.
