    Before his skin seemed so pale, before his side bled ceaselessly, before he was oh so cold, so cold, when his breath would warm to mist in cold air rather than his passing bring mist in warm air, Sigismund was indeed warmed by the sight of a maid who brought skins and other things to the inn where he stayed while passing through.

    He had planned only to rest his horse from the hard journey, before it's next leg, but he found reasons to stay in this place and seek to talk to the maid, Wanda her name, asking of this valley, its inhabitants and history.

    Seeking to enjoy her company and seeing something uncommon about her, something ambitious ~ no bad thing that in his eye ~ something that seemed so out of place here. He spoke to her of towns and cities and other places he had seen, their markets and the parties and celebrations, the social life, the grand cathedrals and their breathtaking beauty. How lucky he felt to see that beauty and the beauty of wood and mountain, but how he always preferred the city. Town air is free air they say. Oh it is not always sweet, but it is a place for the vigorous, the strong, those who are not content to live and die as those did before them.

    He hopes his words find a kindred spirit, for he thinks her a flower grown wild here in the wood that would be destroyed by its first harsh frost but which taken the city and nurtured would bloom and thrive.

    There is a look of interest in her eyes, in him and in the life he describes.

    Sigismund will have gained Wanda's interest if he has read her correctly, sensing her emotions and intentions and thus not being so awkward in his approach to her, having appeared seemly and not approaching a maid with beer in hand, for that will have been how she imagined the approach of the wrong sort her father warned of, not the right sort she dreams of - Guts

  • Wanda's reroll surpasses Sigismund's challenge, so she becomes Challenger, per the shortening of form, her challenge is above, Sigismund's roll as Answerer to this Challenge:

    #DiceRoller( 1d6 )
  • Sigismund hangs in, blocking most of Wanda's challenge but pushing the conflict on as surely this maid must see the merits of this worldly traveller from the bustling city. We both pick up and reroll, Wanda gets an extra d6.

    My reroll, same Challenge if coming out as Challenger

  • (4+6 from advantage dice = 10 to Sigismund's 5, total loss)

    Indeed, Sigismund's Guts are exhausted "Wanda sees Sigismund as a pillar in the the faithful community and one who frowns on the dark arts, so deep down she knows Sigismund will never accept her for what she wants to be: one who deals with and takes the skins of devils. Therefore, she will never have romantic feelings for him." just as stated.

    Which die loses 2 sides or do both lose one side?
  • Sigismund feels the premonition of a cold chill as Wanda is unmoved by him, but not so much he will not later be prey to Ilsa's falsehoods in this regard.
