The campaign is on Obsidian Portal. You'll find characters and more background information there.
I still owe you the rest of the story how we found your mother and sister - we had so much to talk about, I'm sorry.
After we had found the empty cave, we called down the others and investigated further. Logan found some kind of mechanism that he believed to be of Syrneth origin or at least constructed using Syrneth technology. He wanted to search some more before simply trying out the mechanism. I tried my best to be patient and held back Ramon who had already reached out to pull the lever. Alain did pull it, to Logan's dismay, and opened a portal that showed us a tunnel leading further into the ground. Logan punched Alain for his, as he thought, foolishness. The technology used in the mechanism usually sets free uncontrollable amounts of energy, Logan has seen it destroy entire ships, and Alain had probably been lucky that he had just been mildly stunned.

Now Marcello's travelling with his family. Isabel doesn't want to be left behind and Alba is determined to see Paix and eventually Charouse. I didn't plan on that, but it might make things interesting. I'd like to play Isabel if the occasion presents itself.
In any case, Marcello can no longer write letters to Isabel or rather doesn't need to. So he'll be writing to his daughter and maybe I'll do some posts as entries from Isabel's diaries.
The quarrel between Alan and Logan was eventually resolved by a duell between Logan and Ramon, who fought in Alain's stead. I have my doubts that Marcello is going to forget the fact that Alain stood by and watched while Marcello's family was in danger. He understands that Alain's honour had been compromised, but Alain did put his honour above Isabel and Alba, as Marcello sees it. This will influence Marcello's relationship with Alain one way or another.
Marcina is a LONG way from Altamira, across the sea in the Midnight Archipelago. We are definitely keeping that in mind if we ever need to go there in a hurry.
