The conflict with the High Adjudicators continues as our heroes struggle to inflict any solid blows on the surprisingly mobile Trippin. This heavily armored Adjudicator is capable of deadly force or a quick escape with their target, the sword Rulf used years ago to subjugate Taybury. Should Nari & the Boys prevail, they must decide whether justice means killing the usurpers or forcing them to face Kira’s judgment.

Nari & the Boys prepare to deal with the Adjudicator problem plaguing Taybury, but they’re all tuckered out from the busy day they had. While the Boys nap, Nari discovers interesting rumors about Arcolvi’s meddling in the region's politics. Come morning, our heroes pick a fight with the High Adjudicators, one that will determine who makes the rules for Taybury, but one Nari & the Boys may not be able to win.

Upon infiltrating the High Adjudicators’ airship, The Angel’s Might, Nari & the Boys find themselves in a tense standoff with Captain Sanya Pine and her crew.

The 12 Sided Guys are on Discord! https://discord.gg/SJZnpCCx6N

Nari & the Boys struggle to maintain order when the Bailiffs’ masters arrive far sooner than expected. Flaunting Taybury’s sovereignty, these “High Adjudicators” mean to go wherever and take whatever they please. And they aren’t the only threats within the city; the mysterious ambassador from Arcolvi’s true intentions are still unknown. Also, Rousse gets a riding lesson, Ebi proposes a destructive plan (even for him), Nari is bleeped repeatedly, and Pine finds a kitten.

Having weathered a second assault in as many days, Nari & the Boys set about seeking answers from a cult member with cold feet, two survivors from the siege of the Keggery, and a prophet openly preaching a secret sect. Are these isolated incidents or do they share a nefarious origin? And why do things tend to head south when our heroes get together?

When we last left our heroes, Nari, Ebi, and Pine were forced to retreat or perish to the cultists of Inevitability that had taken over Taybury’s keep, while Rousse went alone to face the zealots’ leader and save his sister. A more advantageous position and the help of a newly resuscitated Kira may not be enough to turn this fight around for Nari & the Boys.

Our heroes find themselves right back where they started five years ago, but much has changed in Taybury. Unfamiliar faces with unknown motives fill the Keggery while acolytes of Inevitability preach their dogmas in the streets.

February 21, 2022

Pavantis mourns; never before has the world witnessed such destruction. The Crystal Engine, a corrupted dressing for a wound long festered, no longer shields her from the ravages of Inevitability. And yet, the Engine itself no longer threatens Pavantis’s destruction, either. It was the impossible choice of four heroes, Nari & the Boys, that precipitated this global calamity. But how did these four come to have such a ponderous decision upon their shoulders? How did we get here?

February 7, 2022

Nari & the Boys do battle with the now sentient crystal engine. Once a bandage for a wounded world, now an indifferent clonal colony of crystal life intent on encapsulating the planet.
