Sorry. I can retract if you want.

No, that'd be like asking CCC to make Sparrow less annoying. I wasn't expecting my flaw to be such a disadvantage, but this is getting ridiculous.

Even though you were cool about it, I deleted it. I just get so excited by the games that I forget to make sure all the players have a chance for their turn before I post again. I'm sorry (and that apology is meant for everyone).

CCC and Stan, do you want to rework that and just use your speaking stone to contact Sael? Or were you sending Sparrow back on purpose? Sorry if I made everything confusing.

...I forgot about the speaking stone. I'll redo if Stan has no reason to send Sparrow back.

Ditto. This calls for a retcon!

Is the hooded man's telepathic speech audible to Sparrow as well, or is he still directing it only to Ruan and Anthony?

As soon as Sparrow comes over, he can hear the speech as well.

Ruan's reaction is pretty much my own here. If something showed up in real life offering to grant a wish or a request, I'd refuse. You never know if it's with strings attached, plus you have the Literal Genie and Jackass Genie tropes to worry about.

...see how I didn't directly link to TVTropes? This is so that if you go to TVTropes and get lost there for hours, you'll have no one to blame but yourself.

Sparrow considers himself to have come out ahead in the wishing game. Political influence generally comes without magical cost... so he's no further from being able to prevent any other harm than before the Ceramic Lady asked. And this great big army won't bother the travellers.

Would it be reasonable for him to be able to send a dream along the link created by the stone Edric gave Anthony? If so, Sparrow's going to send Edric some idea of what the road ahead looks like in dreams. (Being Sparrow, he'll send back scouting reports without actually indicating that they are scouting reports, leaving them open to interpretation as some form of prophetic dream. But at least then Edric will recognise the gates of Sael when he reaches them).

Or, ya know, he could just tell Anthony to tell Edric this.

He could... but if Sparrow does it his way, he can show Edric what the runes on the Ceramic Lady's face are.

Sparrow's not much good at rune magic; it's too ordered and disciplined for his tastes. But maybe Edric can tell something from it.
