Session 6 to 7

This version of the story has a little overlap with my previous post, so bear with me. My memory about it is a little hazy and is reconstructed from Peter's notes. As always, Peter and David can fill in some blanks that I left out.

Sophie had discovered terrible conspiracy and unfaithfulness among the leaders of Liguelen scant hours before the pilgrimage was due to leave. Upon returning to the caravan to tell the Prophet Bram, she learned that he had not been seen for several hours. A search of the city failed to find him and served instead to spread rumours about his disappearance.

Disillusioned but still hopeful, Sophie returned with her husband to Foxglen, stopping often to ask others if they'd seen Bram. When back in Foxglen, the stark reminders of life - running the leatherwork business and a new wife coming to the family - collided with her religious zeal. Her contemplations at the temple led her towards a vital decision, a decision she must now make.

And what of Bram? After retiring to his meditations and then disappearing? What has become of him? He's fled; he's defrauded the gullible; he's been taken by the gods; he's been abducted by the prince... the rumours are many and wild, and they're out there. And somewhere, so is Bram.

Andrew's memory is hazy indeed, as what he's posted here is the session summary he wrote himself after session 7. I merely kept a copy and passed it back after Infrno ate our profiles.

David wasn't able to be at session 7, but Bram's absence served to increase the tension I felt on Sophie's behalf.

Other notable events from these sessions include:
- Sophie putting herself between Bram's followers and her brother-in-law's whip.
- High Priest Elric painting Bram as unreliable and challenging Sophie to worship the gods, not the man.
- Thanks to Priestess Fiera's habit of answering a question with a question, Sophie believes that the faithlessness of Foxglen stems from its richer inhabitants' tendency to store up more than they need, rather than sharing it with the poor. A more blatant disloyalty to the village gods is, however, secretly going about its business...

Bram's absence really made things worse for Bram, in the very best way possible.
