Well done, Snipes! Always an enthralling read from you. I especially love the contrasting cultures of the Waerd and Dras and how they come together in a common purpose. Love seeing the contrast and similarities in tribes.
I love all the details! Great read! So many little hints on crafting herbal masks, cleaning agents, proper precaution for the dead. I really liked that you mentioned the village mayor had been a mason and signed the well. Lots of little crafting hints in here! I'm not so interested in crafting weapons, but the descriptions were lovely.
Also, I love that the lantern man has a fear ability basically that roots you in position, at least that's what I took from the story. Seems like The Waerd wasn't affected by it, but the Dras was. Mental break threshold would be an interesting feature...

What a lovely Birthday Present.
Superb job - nicely done Snipe.
Still, don't spread the lantern man hate - They aren't bad - just misunderstood and have a deeper purpose lol.
