FoF: Woche 2

(Very Rough) Character (Size Relations) Sheet:
From left to right (maybe) in order of appearance: Ara, Fire Elemental, Cat Guard, Sparrow Gard, Shadow Queen, Jahnja (w. Ghost Badger ^___^), Fox of Friendship, Nin, Ara’s parents.

Hier sind dann in letzter Minute doch noch einige Rückmeldungen eingegangen: Zum einen isses vielleicht nicht besonders vorbildhaft wildfremde Personen (nachts) nach Hause (in sein Bett) einzuladen. Zumindest nicht, wenn sie sich nicht als vertrauenswürdig erwiesen haben. Da wird also bis nächste Woche nochmal dran gearbeitet. Nin, beweise deine Vertrauenswürdigkeit! Hab’ das außerdem so umgeschrieben, dass es nicht mehr im Winter spielt, weil die sonst alle so eingpackt > langweilig gleich aussehen würden.

Nächste Woche:
Abwandlung der Story, neue Scribbles, vielleicht Update des Character Sheets (bin da tw. noch nicht zufrieden). Kann man was von der Rahmenhandlung einsparen?

Erweiterte Scribbles:

One night Ara awoke to find her companion the Fox of Friendship gone. And the window was open. Had he been kidnapped? Ara decided to investigate.

She put on her cloak and gently tapped against her lamp to wake up the fire elemental inside and fed it some coals.

Gingerly she climbed out of the window, she could hear her parents snoring faintly on the other side of the house. The city lay silent and sleeping. She would ask the {Bridge Dragon} if he had seen the fox.

On her way she passed the statue of the sleeping Buffallo God, dreaming of the monsoon.

„{Bridge Dragon} did the Fox of Friendship come this way?“ „Yes, I let him cross a while ago, he went down into the city.“

„Oh, Catclock good evening to you. What time is it?“ „You should be in bed.“

„Sparrowguard! Catguard! Have you seen the Fox of Friendship?“ „Yes, he was heading to the Labyrinth of Books.“*

The Shadow Queen, who is the guardian, archivist and librarian of the countless books in the labyrinth took Ara the same route she had seen the fox take.

The Shadow Queen said that the fox seemed to be going to the Three Sisters Gate, so Ara headed that way, while the City Whales passed overhead.

She came to the Three Sisters Gate in the city wall. Jahnja was keeping watch. [She sits down with her and Jahnja asks her a riddle which she answers correctly so she can pass].

The tracks finally let into the forrest of the White Hare who was sound asleep. And she could see a light between the trees, maybe a fire?

So it had been a kidnapping after all! Her friend was being strangled by a witch! Ara charged into the clearing ready to save her friend …

„Wait“, cried the fox „This is Nin, who needs our help.“

„Nin has lost her home because the fire rooster decided to sit on her roof** making the house burn down. She tried to rescue her most favourite stones. That’s where she got her scars. She’s a geologist you see.“

„She’s travelled the world since then, lonely and without a home. And since I am the Fox of Friendship I felt her sadness when she was passing by and came looking for her.“ „Well we can all sleep in my bed tonight and see what we can do tomorrow“ Ara decreed and all agreed.
[Because Nin is afraid of fire, she uses glowing cristalls as a lightsource She’s also afraid of the lamp / fire demon a bit.

When her parents looked in on Ara in the morning they saw the most curious sight. „Time for pancakes“ they decided.

And that’s what they had for breakfast.

* Why yes, Walter Moers, I did indeed diversify your fantasy world that had a very distinct lack of women and PoC.
** „Sie hatten den roten Hahn auf dem Dach — ihr Haus hat gebrannt. Die lodernden Flammen erinnern an den roten Kamm eines Hahns. Diese Redewendung findet sich auch im Lied über Florian Geyer, Wir sind des Geyers schwarzer Haufen: „Setzt aufs Klosterdach den roten Hahn!“ bedeutet dort „Brennt das Kloster nieder!““ (Quelle)
