Brialla’s Journey

Brialla’s JourneyOriginally posted January 28th, 2016 by EM Elizabella on the Great Lakes EM Site:

Brialla of the Seven Tears was the first to chart the mysterious north lands of Britannia. Brialla set out from Yew, in her humble brown monk’s robe and bare feet, to push back the dark corners of the map. Her journals are rich with illustrations and detailed descriptions of the terrain, its plants and animals, and the nomads she met along the way. She even found the mineral deposits in the mountains by what would become Minoc.

Every year, in late January, the people of Britannia celebrate Brialla’s journey by donning monks’ robes and walking barefoot from Yew to Minoc. There, they toast to her memory in the tavern. All are encouraged to tell whatever legends they’ve heard of Brialla’s journey or to describe their own adventures.

Meet Louisa Clark in front of Empath Abbey on Saturday, January 30th, at 8 p.m. CST. The traditional robe can be acquired, for a nominal donation, from the monks in the Yew Winery. The road is likely to be unusually clear of monsters that evening, so you’ll have plenty of time to think up a good story for the tavern. The best tales will be added to the Award Hall.

Elizabella and I would like to thank all the players of Great Lakes for making 2015 another amazing year!

Some highlights: You removed the threat of the dreaded Moonstones of Vice. Your work in recovering four important gems helped Hawkwind usher in the Time of Legends. Together, we celebrated 500 EM events and 250 missions for the Royal Spies.

We wish you a Happy New Year’s! Keep your swords sharp for 2016!
