" - yeah, no. Do you know where it'll work?"

The little old lady babbles at her in Local Language.

Permalink

She remembers a couple words of a couple other languages from school? She can try those. She isn't optimistic.

Permalink

Nope. She eventually convinces the little old lady to put another silver coin on the bunch.

Permalink

"I'm not selling it. Where's - where's the nearest big city that sells more -"

Permalink

This does not convey anything useful to the little old lady.

Permalink

She doesn't have Comprehend Languages prepared today but she can prepare it tomorrow. The place is still worryingly devoid of magic but no one's acting alarmed by the amulet either.

 

She sighs and tries to gesture for 'somewhere to sleep'.

Permalink

She successfully mimes her way into a straw-filled loft above a cow and a donkey.

Permalink

....oh, well. That'll do. 

 

It is not the most restful sleep she has ever gotten but in the morning she can cast the spell and find out whether it blows up in her face.

Permalink

It does not!

Permalink

Awesome. Today is going to go so much better than yesterday. 

 

"What's the nearest large settlement to here, and how far is it?"

Permalink

Her hosts are very confused that she can suddenly talk. "- there's Yarisong, up the river, maybe a day."

Permalink

"Is the pendant going to work there? It'll let me send a message home, there'll be people looking for me."

Permalink

"Work? What does it do?"

Permalink

" - it'll communicate a message. Twenty-five words."

Permalink

They frown confusedly at the pendant. "...why wouldn't it work here? Do you need a lot of people to work it?"

Permalink

" - no, it should work everywhere, but it doesn't work here. I thought it might be some kind of localized effect. This place is unusual."

Permalink

"It is?"

Permalink

" - yes. Compared to where I'm from."

Permalink

"You can go to Yarisong if you need a lot of people. I don't know if there's a spellgroup there now."

"Yarisong's not big enough to have one. If I were magic I'd go to Amilu."

"Yeah, if you want to travel for a couple of weeks, Amilu."

Permalink

"Sorry, why would I need a lot of people?"

Permalink

"To - magic up your necklace?"

Permalink

" - I'm from really far away. Things work differently. I'm not familiar with your style of magic. I haven't heard of these towns, either."

Permalink

"Well, you are dressed very oddly."

Permalink

"I got here by accident. I just want to make sure I know what's safe to do, and then I want to figure out how to get back. - what country is this, even -"
