(A new sketch of the spherical object has been made with more detail and small notes about possible incendiary components)
Words can not describe how glorious this day has been. I feel as though my companions tend to look at my inventive habits and forget the sort of skills growing up in a tavern can yield. I certainly reminded them of that today.
Poor Tavion found himself with an unwanted admirer, a beast of a woman named Berta. Thankfully he slipped back into his room and locked himself in somehow. Not so thankfully, I had to get him out trouble for it right after waking up the next morning. She was a fairly well…simple woman. I convinced her a note he wrote to me asking to keep her away was Elven poetry he wrote for her.
Rather than a thank you I was given a lecture about not speaking elvish. What in the material plane would I need to learn elvish for? To talk to all of the elf folk in Baemore? Besides the point, I’ve roped my dear companion into joining my little excursion back to the caves when we get home. Perhaps I should invite one more person, Kaleb may try to tell Aaron what we’re up to, and Kara seems quite sullen and this particular type of adventure might only exacerbate it. Sells doesn’t seem to be very fond of all the adventuring either. Not at all really. Even when it’s just me doing it…
Enough of that! I’m sure he and I can handle it. Hopefully this will bring a measure of peace to Aaron and Estelle. I know how (whatever was written here is scratched out). But that’s really not my business to write about.
Oh this is getting dour, I should be excited! We made a killing in the arena. We could have made more, but we made a deal with an enchanted for magical protection. It kept Aaron alive so I suppose I can’t complain. He needs to be more careful, serious injury is becoming far too common for him.
Arseni’s magic is becoming more and more profound it seems. He went invisible in the middle of the fight! And didn’t even know how! Were I more mystically inclined I might try to study this, but I’m afraid my fascination will have to stay objective. Tavion seems to be quite taken with the mystical lately I’ve noticed. Perhaps he could take up alchemy.
I managed to kill two, not as impressive as the count for the others, but I did land the final blow on their leader! It was such a rush of sliding my blade into that vapid beast and hearing the crowd cheer. We must do this again!
I have a good feeling about this adventure. For me and my friends, here’s to wherever fate brings us together next!
