Eorlith, Lorhan and Dorf are licking their wounds as they sup tankards of Barkeeper Blartur's ale. At the table also sits Multair, Or'eldi's cunning man, sipping his elderflower and nettle cordial.
"We must return to Or'eldi and rescue our people," Multair urges.
"What, and let those Orcs finish us off as well?" Eorlith retorts. "We need to find some more warriors to join us."
"And who is going to join you," the cunning man asks, "when you turned tail and left my people to die like a coward?"
"The man has a point!" acknowledges Lorhan.
[As the encounter is 'complete' I've rolled to see if/how the characters have advanced.
For Eorlith's Rep, I've rolled a 1 so it drops to 3. but I've managed to raise his Hardiness to 2. Because he did a 'runner' his social standing has dropped as well to 2.
Lorhan's Hardiness has also risen to 2 and Multair's Rep has gone to 3. Dorf has not changed.
Recruitment is going to hard. Also as Eaorlith's Rep has dropped, does Larhan's have to as well or can Lorhan take over star-ship? This could be a very short campaign]
