Act 3 - New Roads
Scene X - Specularum, 22nd day (Thaumont, 22nd, 990 AC)
Adriana is ten years old, of average height for her age, slender, with coppery red hair, brown eyes, fair complexion with a great number of freckles. "Come on, Turtle
", she says smiling to her brother Justin when they enter the room. Justin has dark brown hair, is pale and thin, he seems to be recovering from an illness. He looks timidly at you, while Adriana has a lot of questions and entusiasm. Both listen to you account with great interest.
Near the end of it, a beautiful woman finely dressed enters the room too. Alexius, Fortunato and Philip bow to her. She has dark brown hair and icy blue eyes, is slender and very beautiful, probably around 30 years old. "Duchess Olivia
" - Philip Vorloi says, kissing her hand.
"I am not sure a tale about criminals is good for the children
", she says looking at Korrigan.
"Milady, you know how Adrian can be insistent
" - Lord Korrigan smiles.
"Indeed, but now she should leave with her brother, Justin has to take his medicine
", the Duchess says.
Adriana seems about to protest, but a look from her mother persuade her she should leave, and the two children exit the room.
"So you are the famous young Tiberius
- Olivia then says to you - I commend your loyalty to Karameikos. I wish you the best, maybe we will have other occasions to meet
The Duchess then leaves and you remain with Korrigan and the Vorloi.
Korrigan then speaks extensively to you about your village. He also discovered they have some dealings with goblins (you already knew that, hence you learnt the language) but he believes your father and the villagers can be persuaded to join the government's side, now that they have been discovered. It seems in fact they now fear the Iron Ring could decide to wipe them out, in the worst hypothesis, or stop paying them, in the best one.
Korrigan says you will probaby have to return to Fluvius soon...
(Note that Fortunato too was captured by the slavers and you went with Mikel to free him, Taradain and the others who were captured after him. Mikel and Philip Vorloi were the ones who obtained the help of the Torenescu to rescue the captives of the Black Octopus. Probably just a typo, but better to add a precisation for the record or we could have wrong references in the future
