Brodon's Babblings

Eddrick hated spiders. Cats, not so much. As the shadow kitty suddenly clawed its way up to his shoulder, he winced and adjusted his lean to accommodate its ascent. This was not out of kindness, it was more to get the damned thing up where he could grab it and pull it off. He was not of a mind to be cruel or sadistic; he was not out to hurt the thing. But neither did he enjoy having it rip its way up his cloak, pulling it to where its weight was causing the collar to choke him.

"Rutting Imp shat cat!" he sneered, reaching across himself with his left hand to grab the thing as he stood, for better movement. Cats were, after all, known to achieve remarkable feats of contortion to avoid an unwanted touch. Even now, it seemed as if the thing was draped entirely across the back of his neck and shoulders, yet also crawling on his arm. The sudden realization of too many legs to be accounted for with a single cat brought the hairs on Eddrick's arms straight up.

It may well have been partially due to the weakness and shock of breaking off a possession so suddenly, but the ghost reeled in epiphany before Eddrick, "You know my name? Where I come from? How is this possible? Who told you these things?"

Comments:

Whew! a series of narrow escapes! Oberan comes away with the most understanding of what has been going on beneath Rhakros. And the mind-control chemistry involving bugs etc, etc...
Sorry, Obie, the glove will now be powering down, you can keep it as a souvenir if you like.
Attuners will be puzzled by what it's made from though.
As you can see, I have employed the new knowledge system to give just points, rather than having to keep coming up with specific knowledges.
I didn't change the ones I already had down though.
My take on renown is that you all could get each other in trouble as deserters, as well as plainly opposing stances on Sintra.
So you're all probably going to keep this all hush-hush.
If there's anything I've overlooked, do not hesitate to come whining and bitching to me about it. :D
