  • Making a Splash

    Fireday, 24 Pharast, 4723

    Magic can dry out my clothes, but it can't banish the stink of smoke from them. That was my final lesson of this long and strange day.

    Following my last entry, we had descended to the second level of …

  • The Day the Tower Fell

    Fireday, 24 Pharast, 4723

    I am writing this while seated atop a treasure chest, in an ancient dungeon deep below the earth. This has been a most unusual day.

    It began in the inn, where I was reviewing my notes …

  • Kobold Komplications

    Fireday, 24 Pharast, 4723

    Thank Desna for my waterproof book bag. It truly is a necessity for the field researcher.

    Picking up from my last entry, we continued into the low tunnel the kobolds had burrowed into …

  • Extreme Diplomacy

    Fireday, 24 Pharast, 4723

    Two berserker episodes in the same day. It's been months since I was this unstable. This whole expedition is stirring up the worst in me. But with innocents in danger, what choice do I have …

  • Reckoning with Roaghaz

    Starday, 25 Pharast, 4723

    I beat the kobold chieftain with my staff until it shattered over his ruined skull. I've had that staff for a month, since I landed in [[Taldor]]. It was to accompany me on my scholarly …

  • Into the Wizard's Manor

    Starday, 25 Pharast, 4723

    I have never been happier to take a bath than I was today. [[:aldern | Aldern's]] magics were handy in the kobold tunnels, even if they tickled, but nothing gives you than deep clean feeling …

  • Fish in a Barrel

    Sunday, 26 Pharast, 4723

    I can now add "demon-slayer" to my resume, thanks to the recklessness of [[:balthus]]. And I'm still seeing spots in my vision after walking through his blasted wall of light.

  • Brain Dead

    Moonday, 27 Pharast, 4723

    That fucker [[:balthus]] was into some really vile shit. I can't help but admit that the kobolds were right to kill him, even if it was done for the wrong reasons. Given what we've come …

  • Auction Day

    Oathday, 30 Pharast, 4723

    Today, our group nearly came to blows over who would carry a magic bag that we don't even have yet, but we resolved the dispute with a compromise and a Tian game of chance. It's been that …

  • Tomb Raiders

    Starday, 29 Gozran, 4723

    With the village in danger, our band of misfits have been deputized as emergency archaeologists. This was not what I'd intended for my trip to [[Belhaim]], but I will do what I must.

  • Crypt of the Golden Knight

    Sunday, 30 Gozran, 4723

    Still can't talk. We are about to go acquire an angry ghost's wedding ring and return it to a friendly ghost so that she will give us her blessing to plunder her relics. Oh the things I …

  • Wraith of Wrath

    Sunday, 30 Gozran, 4723

    I let it loose. I woke the dragon and let it run rampant and nearly got all of my friends killed several times over. And even with all that unbridled fury, I still couldn't stop a fucking ghost from kicking the …

  • A Walk in the Woods

    Sunday, 30 Gozran, 4723

    The hike from the tomb was torture. I couldn't take more than ten paces without needing to stop for a breather. I still can't. It is like that wraith tore the stamina straight out of me. [[: …

  • Monastery of the Mad Monks

    Moonday, 1 Desnus, 4723

    What the fuck am I doing? I'm sitting here in the Wise Piper Inn, with my magic sword, stowing away the potions of strength and healing that I purchased, as I prepare to go forth and fight …

  • Talking to Snakes

    Toilday, 2 Desnus, 4723

    I grow very tired of being felt up by evil spirits while my mind is not my own. Yet it seems to be a recurring feature of this quest we have gotten caught up in.

    We moved on from the …

  • The Aspirant's Path

    Wealday, 3 Desnus, 4723

    There is nowhere I can go on this damnable quest that doesn't involve me getting wet somehow, is there? But after the last few hours of self-inflicted hell we've been through, a good soak in …

  • Kill the Man-Bat

    Wealday, 3 Desnus 4723 

    It it is a truth universally accepted that if there is a pool of water, [[:sofie | Sofie Gundarsdotter]] will somehow end up in it. I just never imagined I'd be drowning a man …

  • The Dark Window

    Oathday, 4 Desnus, 4723

    A lot of things were laid bare today. Some things I had thought would be kept hidden, and others that were right out in the open. I'm still a tangle of emotions, and getting my ass …

  • Drengr Knights

    Starday, 6 Desnus, 4723

    What a delightful day it has been! We woke refreshed in the [[:false-aeteperax | dragon's]] treasure grotto and set about determining how best to transport the loot back to [[Belhaim]]. …

  • Summer in Belhaim

    Toilday, 9 Desnus, 4723

    I was kind of a mess yesterday, but today was better. I slept in after a late night drinking with [[:knives | Knives]] and

    Kubo and the Two Stings

    Starday, 22 Erastus, 4723

    It has been a long, hot couple of weeks riding through the Verduran Forest in bumpy carriages. We played boulder, parchment, shears at the start of the trip to see who would carry [[: …

  • Not the Bees!

    Moonday, 24 Erastus, 4723

    Why does this always happen? [[:kubo | Kubo]] says he is cursed, but it seems like danger and violence follow me wherever I go.

    Just as the Shelynite priestess was delivering a …
