Survey of Sol 3: Biscornu

I set the cowl down, solemn - touched by the mermaid's sacrifice. I hope that she and her mate found a way to be happy.



She does her spellwork every day. Embroiders runes and paints signs and sigils. She chalks signs of protection over her door and paints them on her floor.

She touches everything three times on her way to the door. She carries talismans and traces her symbols in the air. Steps aside for men in dark coats. Clutches the soft, rune-embroidered biscornu in her pocket when she's nervous, tracing her fingers over the runes over and over. Strength and success, power and healing, growth and enlightenment. Writes them everywhere, in the hopes that repeating them will cause them to sink in and become part of her.

Apologies for brevity. We're having song-and-dance numbers over here.

We have been asked if we would like to be served chicken marsala and black pepper fettucine by a cute boy in a French maid outfit. The answer to this question will always be yes. Team Venture votes yes.
