I woke from a sleep uninterrupted either by dreams or by standing watch to the sound of grating stone on stone and Travis announcing that he intended to see the chamber of horrors below. No entreaties would persuade him from discovering some news of his origin. I wandered into a chamber from which glowing sprites […]

After a short rest, we returned belowground to purify the desecrated shrine of Moradin. After helping dispose of the orc, I left the others scrubbing gore from the walls and went to commune with the now-toothless black dragon. While kneeling before the skull, I noticed the gleam of a necromancer’s black onyx in the eye […]

Letter to Caedmon, 25th Day of Mielikki

Dearest Caedmon, How brightly the moons shine tonight! Selûne glows pale and full, while Io gleams with a pink halo, the shape of a bronze scythe. Nights like these remind me of the lunar festivals we used to enjoy on Talpin, where the Moon Goddess, the mistress of the tides, is so highly esteemed. Do […]

Tymora travels with us. Not only did she smile on our return to The Glade, letting us traverse the way in a single day’s marching, she also granted Tilia’s caregiver the wisdom to save not only the furbolg’s right arm, but her life.

The first chamber […]

Woke next to Val today, on a lumpy straw mat in the room above Yeoman’s Apple. Seems the barkeep made the standard assumption that a man and woman who spend all day drinking together and fall asleep in each other’s arms require only a single pallet upon passing out. “Well, isn’t this embarrassing,” I kicked […]

“What in the Dragon’s name is that?” “This will help.” Val, who just shook me awake, holds out her flask. I take it and drink deeply; the ale soothes my throat. Returning the flask, I ask again, “What is that?” I am slumped across an empty barrel that smells like the ale I just drank, […]
