Alix the Antipodean

Postby Khuxan » Tue Aug 04, 2009 2:49 am

A braggart and an explorer, the adventurer Alix of the Falcon claimed the title ‘Antipodean’ after returning from what he said was a rigorous journey to the Antipodes. Ven scholars, of course, would not have a bar of it but they were hard-pressed to explain his detailed tales and curious artifacts.

Very interesting. :) Now if he's actually gone to the Antipodes, wouldn't have needed Strength to get there? ^_^

Also for Devotions I'd suggest:

The Name of the Storm - only way to survive against the storm when so far from home
The Falcon Knows No Fear - Handy for dealing with problems - although it doesn't help your Strength Weakness
The Ironwood Bow/The Sacred Tool/My Courage is Enough - all excellent and all useful for what Alix has done.

Unfortunately, it takes Strength, Beauty, Cunning, Prowess, Wisdom and Courage to get to and survive in the Antipodes. But the ven make do with what they have.

The Name of the Storm, The Falcon Knows No Fear and The Sacred Tool it is! Thanks.
