Erica’s shading effect here was all her idea, too.

I like how committed Syr’Nj is to trying to live up to her ideals, even when it doesn’t seem likely to affect her life long-term. Hold on to that, because she’s gonna fail again before the end of the chapter and won’t have mead as an excuse.

Original version had Syr’Nj seeing signs of a struggle and then finding Frigg’s weapons. It was conceivable that the Sisters would leave them behind as Phil suggested, but seemed more likely they’d take them as spoils, and we didn’t want to make things too easy. The fact that Frigg’s weapons and armor were then missing in action also ended up giving Syr’Nj and Bandit a good side quest in the next chapter, so no regrets.
