Aries wakes up in the basement of the Erton Home...
Her head is foggy, her perceptions a tad blurred, but Billy Erton is unmistakable.
Bet you all thought the 'purple hat' the bartender and ogre mentioned was something Gandalfy and pointy, right? Psssh! This is Lone Candle! He has a baseball style cap from Ashegar University!
And... Aries might be REALLY screwed...
Oh, and we have our first Spiran racial slur! Non-human species, such as the Rathi (Aries species), Grassmen, Skyborn and so on have a racial slur for humans.
Humans call Rathi 'furball' or 'scale-belly'. Grassmen are called 'Greentop' or 'Dirt-eater'. Sub-Terrestrials are called 'Paleskins'. Skyborn are called all manner of things. and Tengu are often called 'Featherhead' or 'Birdbrain'.
