Some journeys have many purposes. For Ephrim, Lord of the Last University, the trip to the isles of Alcyon offers an opportunity to retrieve the special plate required to build pala-din, the autonomous stone soldiers which once patrolled the streets of ancient Marielda. For the druid Fero, the trip will lead him to a place where Samol’s magic does not yet fade. With Arrell’s conduit identified, Hadrian and his family must flee their home or else put thousands in danger. And as is often the case, for Throndir and Kodiak, the trip is an opportunity to shoulder the many burdens his friends carry, and to provide guidance and justice in a world that increasingly offers less of each.
This week on Friends at the Table: Passing of
I have taught you the value of a HOME for the neophyte MAGE,
but in the instance that an EXCURSION is unavoidable, take heed my
words: Never travel ALONE. Whether friend or hired hand, secure
your safety behind the bodies of others. And remember: A mage is
never truly alone.
