Brigid's Heir

10. The Battle of Yarax
... a woman made of sand...

Eir, Ehawee, Guiwenneth and Rowtag infiltrate The Yellow Fortress Yarax, while Ashkar goes to the surviving river elementals and ask for their help to cleanse the river; the elementals create a huge wave, breaking the walls of the fortress. The force of the river also breaks the vitriol pools the cult built all over the river and soon the Metody and the river nymphs begin to fight each other.

The circle reunites at the central tower Omaron O’Rengra and take advantage of the ruckus to climb to it’s top. Sister Agath sacrifices herself and a group of worshipers to summon Rengramul the Quadruple, who appears and says: “It is Brigid’s destiny to return to her true masters, now she will stay with Bor Arg Bah, give her to us and I’ll spare you much of the suffering, resist and the agony will be eternal”.

The Demon breaks into his four selves and fights the circle. Meanwhile the river’s flow breaks through the fortress and slips down river until it’s poluted waters are absorbed by the roots of Racoral’s Forest; the vitriol then causes the demon-blooded trees to grow disproportionately and uncontrolled.

The circle destroys Rengramul and he speaks his last words: “This is not a victory, know that what one hand does, the other cannot stop, this and all the remaining ages of man will fall, only when the Yozi have returned will Creation find a future, this is just the prelude of the conflict to come!”

Suddenly, a woman appears calling herself Renuko Queen of the Bor Arg Bah; she summons a sandstorm while an hourglass shines on her forehead. The sand destroys the tower and the circle fall with the derbris to the river.

Ashkar takes his Phantom Steed Namine and goes to Racoral’s Forest to find the hermit but he only manages to salvage his corpse. The circle decide to burn the forest before it spreads any further and the two brothers are incinerated together.

Later, a pure sprout emerges from the forest’s ashes, the first tree still lives…

He also tells Guiwenneth that not only was a demon involved at the beginning of Brigid’s original pilgrimage; but that sorcery is a force inherently tied to the Primordials and Yozi.

Racoral tells Guiwenneth that once the Primordials surrendered, they accepted a pact that enabled sorecerers to call on their brethren and that the power the call the mightiest souls of the imprisoned titans would be hers to comand in the Second Age.

... they also call her Mother Bog...

The circle travels to Sansern’s Ford, a place known for it’s astonishing beauty, situated near the peaceful village of Cecob.

In Cecob, the circle meets a group of Outcaste teenagers: Jan, Isu and Diro, who live in the “The Garden of Sextes Jylis” an orphanage founded by monk Azu, an old Dragon Blooded veteran from the Blessed Isle, who after years of campaigning with his brotherhood chose to do something for the children that had lost their homes and families in the endless conflicts of the Age of Sorrows.

After hearing their story, the next day the circle goes to Sansern in hopes of finding any related clues about Brigid and/or sorcery in general; however, the place where the ford should be, is instead occupied by a mysterious swamp. Without success the circle goes back to Cecob where they encounter a group of grotesque creatures attacking the villagers and demanding “flesh for the swamp”.

After defeating the creatures, the circle meets “F”, a famous archaeologist of the Scavenger Lands, he tells them that the swamp wasn’t meant to be there in the first place and that it had been spotted in different places over the years, it was an ancient creature that roamed the land demanding human sacrifices from small villages and towns since the end of the First Age. He also explains that the creature cannot be completely killed, since it’s heart had been divided in four throughout Creation, but, nevertheless it would still cause it great pain if one of her hearts was to be destroyed.

Ashkar goes in search of a manse in which F had located one of Mother Bog’s hearts. Meanwhile Eir, Ehawee, Rowtag and Guiwenneth defend Cecob from a huge army of shamblers. Ashkar manages to retrieve the heart and goes back to the swamp, there he demands to hear what the swamp has to say. Mother Bog tells him that she was severely wounded by one of the Solar Exalted in the past and that everything she does is inscribed in her own nature; Ashkar offers Mother Bog to collect and protect the four pieces of her heart if she leaves Sansern and it’s deities free again. Mother Bog accepts the pact and she and her shamblers leave.

When Guiwenneth arrives to Sansern, the spirits of the ford Yin-ye and Sao-Yan-Me welcome her as the Mother of Spells and show her the formula of a powerful spell inscribed in the landscape of Sansern by the Great Salinan Work “When Guiwenneth reaches the Third Circle she may be able to cast this spell on Creation and cleanse it’s surface once again”.

Just before leaving Sansern to continue their journey, the circle bumps into monk Azu, who saw them reveal their real nature during the fight against the shamblers, but decided to put his grudge for the Anathema aside and even gives them some supplies and some Seeds of Immaculate Blood that might come in handy…
