Dance time, baby! While the general mood of the group is not great we can all agree that a school dance is just the place to get that frown doing flips. Unless of course Zin and his band of goons ruins a perfectly nice night with some high jinks. Who knows!?!! Also, who is that in the foreground there? Yes the one that is shadowed…hmm probably nothing.
Cast and Player Characters
The Harvest Festival is introduced by Lady Hileina Silver, and a Halfling named Yonbroos of the local merchants guild announces that they are sponsoring a punch bowl, encouraging them all to drink. Vance apologizes to the group for being a right little shit, while Bek and Big Humbert Honkus dance together. Also in attendance is Brunhilda and Amber Reeve, as well as Grant, a Elvish boy with big ears, and his sister Sinyde, a Merfolk with spiky ears, and dark, purple hair. Isaac brags to them about his many adventures. Zin has a drink, his first ever, and at some point, Smash breaks the arm of Teddy Yudain. Finally, Yonbroos announces that the Harvest King/Queen ceremony has begun, and Vance wins Harvest King, for the third year in a row. The Harvest Queen is down to Val and Yvonne, but ultimately, Val wins! Lilly and Billy, of The Society of Grave Arcane Secrets begin their plan of foiling this festival by throwing magic apples at Val, but Zin, who was supposed to join them, instead has second thoughts. He teleports to the stage next to her and summons a Cloud of Daggers in front of her to keep her safe. The rest of the Daring Dragoons join in, shielding Val from the apple assault, and are successful in their attempt. Lady Silver bans the SGAS from attending the Festival next year, and congratulates Zin for standing up to his "friends", for his friends.
Despite this, Val is still upset, and runs off toward town. She's followed by Isaac, who catches up with her, apologizes, and gives her the bangle that he got at the fair. The two hug.
There happiness is short lived, however, as at that exact moment, everything falls to shit.
