Tric and Heppa antagonize yet another former resident of Hisanham, but then Tric manages to entertain the patrons of the Parting Glass with his first stand-up performance.
Once again, units from the Battle for Wesnoth video game inspired characters in this arc. Gwaffalyn is a mash-up of the Fencer and Duelist units. Rhaessa is a White Mage. Heledd is a Thief. Aderyn is an Elder Falcon, a type of unit in Dunefolk armies. Damal is a Dune Herbalist.
As of this arc, Tric Manu has learned that he is a member of the Manu clan of the Dunefolk. At this point, I should mention that there are no mainline campaigns featuring Dunefolk characters in the Battle for Wesnoth video game. The lore in our game world is derived from unit descriptions, discussions on the Wesnoth forums about what could go into official lore, our personal experience living in arid environments, and our own imaginations. Also, we started playing our tabletop roleplaying game while version 1.14 was the current Battle for Wesnoth release. Since then, version 1.16 has come out, and it made a lot of changes to Dunefolk units. So some of the characters in our campaign are based on units that no longer exist in the current release.
