Monsters

- Resah Igaly (Dryad Resah)

 

Scene One: Such stuff as dreams are made of…

Narrative
[After brief RP] No matter how much healing our rousing Resah receives, she seems determined to sleep, and when sleeping, looks like the dead. In the clear light of the Jastreyan afternoon, you are able to see how weak she’s become: skin and bones, sunken cheeks and jaundiced skin.
Scene Notes
Players may attempt to HEAL, ROUSE, or CURE Resah. She will take the effects, but still return to sleep after. The first time they ROUSE her she weakly identify Goose, but any attempt to ROUSE her after that she will either say nothing or be confused.

As Goose watches his wife sleep, his parasite will regain the strength it needs to communicate.
REDOPTIC PARASITE NOTES:
We no go again. We promised.
[The Wheeled Creature] We were saving grey-energy… was winged wheel… powerful uai… weak to fire.
[Clearwind] We do not know Clearwind
[Clover’s Mother] We do not know….
We warned us…. Lady Green Head… is in the swarm.
[The swarm?] little wiggles inside Lady Green Head.
[Cure?] Kill Lady Green Head… or send back Outside.
[Threats] We do not care about swarm. We know others care about swarm.

Scene Two: … I was revived, and was an emperor…

Narrative
Resah begins to turn and roll, burrowing into her blankets in a more natural sleep. In time, she opens her eyes and looks at you. You cannot quite read her expression.
Scene Notes
RESAH RP NOTES: Soft-spoken, brief. Confused.
Goose?
[How do you feel?] Did I sleep in? I’m tired…
[Are you okay?] I… think I’m in a mood again.
[Do you remember anything?] Yes? How did the expedition go?
[The last thing you remember] …. Sylvia and I had berries and cream for breakfast… and… then I took a nap? Wait. Where am I? Where is Sylvia?! Where are we Goose!
(Resah does not remember ANYTHING from the past 5 years… and will be unresponsive for awhile as she processes everything that is explained to her.)
[Difficulty conceiving] There was difficulty… but then life found a way.
[Deal?] A deal? No. Sometimes you just get blessed, treefrog. Though… I suppose maybe we weren’t…
I assume my loom was lost in the fire… of course it was. That was silly… Can you make me a new one? A small one?
And get me some new yarn? Yellow… like sunflowers?
I think I’m going to go to sleep again for a while.
Narrative Effects
