Ptolem Cloudbane

The first thing you should know about Ptolem is that the “P” in his name is silent…unless, of course, you’re making fun of him, in which case you may want to overemphasize it. Don’t worry, Ptolem can take a joke, but it’s not advisable unless you can take a dose of your own medicine.

Ptolem is a Runeweaver and caretaker of The Watcher’s Fount, a statuesque fountain at the center of your village in The Galeswood Forest. At this Fount, Petarukin pay their respects to The Watchers. Ptolem is rarely seen without his cogwork staff, a device he fashioned himself. With a twist of the handle, Ptolem channels väki to power his skills and traits.

Wysp is fiercely independent and slow to trust, having survived a vicious attack at a young age.

Wysp is a follower of Saskiel, which means she can manipulate the powers of lumin to change energy and harness natural forces. Her three skill dice are Scepter Spectre, Soother, and Tide Shifter.

Will you take a shortcut or go the long way around? Engage in battle or avoid conflict? The outcome–victory or defeat–will strengthen or weaken your Kinship as you approach the final threat.
