G'day all,

Here's the final PC written for the tournament.

MAD PRAX - BEYOND SUN DOME (part #6)

V. Sarshas Yarallo

Sarshas Yarallo is a junior member of the Lunar Governor's staff, and as
such, gets called on to do all sorts of disagreeable tasks - such as
being ordered to courier an important document just before you were
due to go off duty (then waiting in the governor's cold antechamber
for two hours while the message was being penned), and being sent off
on horseback dash for the Sun Dome temple just as the sun was
setting.

Roleplaying Notes
Like all good nobleman's sons, you're doing your stint as a Red Tribune in
the army before moving on to brighter and bigger things. But by the Bat!
how did you end up in Prax? The weather's lousy, the food stinks and the
nightlife in Pavis is almost non-existent. It's even worse in Sun
County; outsiders aren't even allowed to speak to any of the women,
who hide their faces behind veils. As for the superior airs they put on;
you'd think it was they who conquered us, rather than the other way
round!

Although you're courageous and confident (and handsome), there's no
point doing something gallant if there's no one of impressive rank
around to see, right? (Unless she's pretty...)

What's Happening Now?
With fresh mounts at several points along the way, you got to the Sun
Dome Temple around midnight, and then had a hell of a time getting
admitted. When you finally got to see the Count, he read your
message and immediately began barking orders. Gongs were rung and guys
with bleary eyes were running all over the place, furiously strapping on
their armour. In the pandemonium you seem to have been forgotten, and,
tired, dirty and cold, having ridden half the night , you just curled up
in a corner of the Count's meeting house under your cloak. The Goddess
knows what the message said, but nobody wanted to answer your questions;
maybe you'll find out in the morning...

>From the Notes From Nochet files:
(XXIX. 21-011) I have always seen, in Prax and such nasty places, that
a lioness, finding a herd of game, stares at a particular animal she
has selected to devour. The rest, quite understanding, isolate the
unfortunate and go on grazing unperturbed. Thredbo the Wild Sage.
