A peryton is a mythological creature with the body of a stag and the wings and hindquarters of a bird. It is said to cast the shadow of a man until it kills one during its lifetime, from then on it casts its true shadow.
This may or may not be my new favorite mythological creature.
More “sitting in my car just before I remove my facepaint selfies”! Same NPC, slight variation on facepaint. This role has been a blast, as pretty much every time I’ve gone out, it’s been on a mission to find food and/or drink for things. Or delivering missions to people who may or may not care (at which point a mouse ran over my foot and I made a very undignified shriek) which still got me food :) (to whoever you were who gave me a blueberry muffin, you are now my favourite person ever :D )
And then, just after time out, storm clouds rolled in. We were all gathered in the crew tent when there was a massive roll of thunder, we legged it out to see the big black clouds in the horizon, and I ran to take my tent down so I could get it in the car. I managed it, just, and made it back to the crew tent before the rain and hail started.
And now I’m going to sleep, because while this weekend has been amazing, it was a day longer than it needed to be, and I’ve managed maybe 5 hours of interrupted sleep a night. And last night I was up until 3am talking with someone and I’m very very tired (and may have shouted at Dave rather a lot this afternoon, but he was being slow and indecisive and I wanted to go home).
Hang over made up for by having a mobile number for someone :)
