Working with Jerry is pretty great. I can say something like "how do people call the Thornwatch" and five minutes later he comes up with tying a wreath of thorns around a birch tree. He then cooks up a system of knots that tell the Thornwatch what the mission will be. Oh and a poem.
Twainward for burdens that no man should carry, Bent Bow for battles you can’t fight alone, Wagon-Wise for when the Watch must not tarry, Crow’s Loop for travelers far from home.
It was so cool I just had to draw it. This little girl has just finished her wreath and pricked her finger on the knot.
I'm still working hard on Thornwatch. I have a big play test coming up Wedesday. I'll make another post about the game after that.
