Created 12th June, Summer 1221
Some Polotskian tribesmen came to our inn, wailing for help against some raiding 'mongols'.
Dmitri, fearing the 'strom from the east' went, ostensibly to 'evaluate a possible threat to the order'.
Vitenka went, because it might be fun.
A wierd temple was found on the journey; several hundred miles away. We sensibly ignored it.
A werewolf found a similar temple near the covenant, and talked to some vordenoy about it.
Dmitri then had a meeting with a mongolian raiding party.
A plan was formulated, that we should talk to them, and if they turned out to be hostile then we would defend ourselves.
Dmitri ignored this plan, and started threatening them; ordering them to surrender or die.
They attacked, thinking to 'capture the Khan a great jester'. They died.
Dmitri was now a hero to the polotskians. Making a speech via Sildana and a translator, he promised to attack them, and that his familiar (a marmoset transformed to appear to be a woman) would scout.
The scouting party was gone for two weeks, when it found a great encampment.
Vitenka sneaked inside invisibly to see what he could find; and the rest waited invisibly back.
I got back to find only a mortally wounded Danislav, and was able to effect a temporary and partial recovery for him.
The others were apparently dead or captured.
I tried my best attempting to find them, and Danislav made one final glorious charge. I did what I could for him.
Dmitri meanwhile had bene making raids against mongol parties - and had re-killed a couple of leaders.
Then, apparently realising that he had sent Sildana to her death, he went to try and find her.
Nearly getting killed in a botched rescue attempt, Sildana rescued him, by taking him with her when she entered Arcadia. (Apparently as a fully paid up member. Ooops... I'm not supposed to know about that yet)
