After several weeks of relaxation on the coast of Rainos, Steven and his companions were summoned once more... but this time, war was not the cause.
About this creation
"Hey! Any of you from the Krak?"
"Yes; we're the command crew. Why do you ask?"
"It's fortunate that we caught you. Most of the key defenders against the invasion attempt have earned honors. Your lord, Cedric, has promotions for all of you, and word is you're wanted in Iremore for a couple of knighthoods."
Argo didn't like the sound of that.
"What do you mean, 'our' lord? I wear no uniform! I wouldn't be wearing a shirt at all if it wasn't so cold."
"It comes with a month and a half of back pay."
"Oh, well, that's different..."
Preparing for winter, you ask? How is this preparing for winter? Well, I built it mostly in preparation for my next rank challenge in Iremore, but I also worked to show the change in seasons through the characters' attire, the barren tree and the fallen, colorful "leaves" - the red, green and yellow cheese wedges. No, it's not my best work, but I never claimed to be good at building the outdoors. On the other hand, I'm glad that I was able to use two unusual pieces - a beaver-skin hat and a fairy's skirt - on the central dragon clansman.
I had to add some stonework partly to maintain sanity, partly to break up the color and partly because I ran out of leaves - hence the little roadside altar.
