    When it comes to food supply, rodents are always a problem. You have to be vigilant or one might sneak through and spoil the lot. That's what this one was doing. Working its way towards what must be a rat's version of the lottery. And it almost made it too. When suddenly solid darkness wraps around the rat and drags the creature into the netherworld squeaking for its life, its soul. No pity comes and the creature vanishes leaving only slightly shifting shadows behind.

    "Uh, w-well I just sort of took forms that were useful for what I was doing, I think." Sylvie offers as a bit of a half-hearted explanation. "Lucy was useful for talking to people as a not-dragon. Gustav for any case where it was more useful to be male than female. Gudrun for the giants. And Jack for when I just don't want to be remembered at all."
    Before you criticise someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticise them, you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    Two people approach the camp from the GLoG Riftline station.
    "-t that's what trains are like." Honeysuckle concludes dizzily. They go too fast, if you ask her.

    "Here's the Good League. Uh...Is there hmm, a center building?" she asks Sekhmet.
    There is. The [Main Lodge] is right over there, very obvious to most people.

    "That building looks important." Sekhmet gestures to the lodge. At the same time, she's looking around nervously. There are so many people here. She shies away from anyone who approaches and avoids eye contact. She looks scared.

    "And which of them came about first?" Sophie asks. "Do you remember when you first slipped and went too far in acting?"

    [Entrance] ==> [Main Lodge]

    If the two head to the main lodge, they will see one of the caretakers, a goblin woman with brown skin and oddly mismatched - yellow and green - eyes. She's carrying a baby that looks like a humanoid wolf, but with odd features - short muzzle, cat-like eyes, long ears and general slimness. The baby is fussy and the goblin woman is trying to calm him down.

    Honeysuckle follows Sekhmet's gesture and leads the poor tiefling up to the main lodge. She doesn't look nearly as nervous as Sekhmet, tails waving, not keeping a hand on her weird visor or anything.

    What a curious baby. Not Reelshka's, is it? Or has she just lost all her fur? Probably best not to ask.

    "My friend here has just arrived from another world in a teleportation accident."
    That says it all, doesn't it?

    "Uh, hi," the Tiefling girl looks rather sheepish. "I uh, I need a place to stay and food and uh, things." Sekhmet is maybe 17, with a modest figure, dark red skin, a pair of horns like a gazelle's curving up over the top of her head, and a devilish tail. She wears a long blue dress with a slit in the back for her tail, a leather corset, heavy leather work boots, and a leather headband with a number of magnifying lenses on it.

    With new people being there, the wolfish baby settles down a bit, his nose working intently in their direction. The goblin seems relieved.

    "Oh, I see. That's sadly a fairly common occurrence. We often provide help to people who got here with nowhere else to go. My name is Reelshka Trollfinger, one of the camp caretakers here. This grumpy little gentleman is my son, Balthuk."

    "Oh good. I don't really have the time or money to help people settle in myself."
    Honeysuckle says, not really apologetic about it. It's just the way things are.
    "Charmed. I'm Honeysuckle, but I'm just someone who was there where the portal let her out. And how are you, Balthuk? Not giving your mother too much trouble?" she asks, leaning in closer to the weird little baby.
    Is he supposed to be so diffuse? Is he getting enough to eat? Does he have a wolf's nose? Honeysuckle smells like a human and a fox, of course, and also a bit like a dragon (although mostly like various soaps).

    "I'm uh, Sekhmet. She smells musty, like old books and like she doesn't get outside much. There are other smells too fainter ones, smoke, oil, metal, and various chemicals. "He's uh, cute." The kid is cute, but Sekhmet doesn't want to ask any prying questions about just what sort of kid he is. That would be rude.

    "It's great to meet you both." Balthuk makes a pleased growling noise, but it's difficult to say if it's because he's addressed. "He's not any more troublesome than any other baby. In any event, we can put you up in one of our cabins, Sekhmet. You can stay here until you get your bearings. It's normal to be confused after winding up here by accident."

    "Just give me your name and any details you think are relevant," Reelshka says, walking over to a ledger, skilfully holding her baby out of the way. "I'll assign you to one of the cabins. If you feel like you can help around the campsite, you're welcome to."

    Sekhmet clears her throat and gives her information, "My name is, uh, Sekhmet Winnifred Ingenia Octothorpe. I am female, 17 years of age. I am a craftswoman, an alchemist, and a uh, uh," she gulps, afraid to say the next words, "a Tiefling."

    [Lake]

    In the early afternoon one spring day, a dragon slinks its way into GLoG’s grounds. Weaving her way past the trees, our master of stealth finds a spot not directly in front of the camp, puts her bag and glasses on the shore, and tries her claw and swimming. She’s naturally good at it, but swimming is new to her, and she sticks close to the shore where she can extend her neck and breathe if she sinks.

    Our dragon today is several times as long as a person is tall, with pale white-pink scales, bright pink fins, and a puffy, furry tail that surfaces sometime. Her vulpine head stays above the water at all times, but she’s sure that no one will spot her. Who goes to the lake this time of year? She is a master of stealth.

    "I noticed, yes," Reelshka says as she writes it down. "We've had tieflings here before. One of our members is married to one." She doesn't seem to consider it particularly noteworthy, much less bothersome. "A craftswoman and alchemist at the age of 17, though? That's impressive."

    [Lake]

    Someone seems to have noticed the dragon despite her mastery of stealth. A high-pitched voice calls out:

    "Cheasadh, look! There's something big and pink in the lake!"

    Lake

    "Oh, wow, that is big and pink, isn't it? Race you there, last one to get to the shore has to hug Pookie!" Cheasadh yells, and runs forward. She's starting off a bit too far to make out more than big and pink, and eagerly runs down the slope to the bank.

    Cheasadh is a young gnome girl, with blonde hair and blue eyes, currently wearing a pink dress and a pair of purple wellington boots. Following behind is a brown Teddiursa whose short legs and large pot of honey means he's likely to be last, though he's also wondering why the loser has to hug him. Surely he's not that unpleasant? Cheasadh will slow down as she sees the lake-swimmer's more draconic features, but she won't stop.

    Sekhmet seems rather startled that Reelshka doesn't care, but recovers. "Well, uh, I'm not exactly certified." Where she's from, Tieflings can't get guild membership and certification. She isn't bad at her crafts, but she's no master and has no official training.

    Brinika, wearing a skirt, a turtle-neck shirt and a sleeveless jacket, comes running to the lake behind Cheasadh.

    "You were first! So I gotta hug Pookie. But... I think this pink something is trying to hide underwater. Hello?"

    "Hmm. Well, I'm not sure if there's anyone here who can help with those particular skills," Reelshka says. "But I'm sure you can make them useful. There's always something to fix around here. And you might be able to find teachers outside the camp."

    "It... Looks a bit dragon-y. But it's hiding, and it's pink. So it can't be a dragon." Cheasadh nods confidently. "...Can it?" She's less confident now.

    Pookie will go to give Brinika a very sticky hug! His fur's soft and he's quite warm; if he weren't sticky, it'd be quite a pleasant experience.

    Reelshka turns away from the paperwork. Balthuk seems to have dozed off in the meantime.

    "Let's get to the cabin you'll be assigned," she says. "Feel free to ask me any questions you have in the meantime. I know this is a lot to take in."

    "Uh, okay." Sekhmet will follow. She has a lot of questions, but she's also somewhat embarrassed to ask. "What uh, what other things so you do here, besides housing?"

    "We perform other kinds of charity work," Reelshka says as she leads the way with a surprisingly springy step, given her short legs and the baby in her arms. "We house people who have nowhere else to go, as well as refugees fleeing some disaster or other. Our infirmary is open for those who don't have access to other healthcare or who want to study medicine. I personally do some pro bono architecture work now and then, and other members have their own initiatives. We also offer therapy and help those who want to turn away from a life of crime or villainy."
