  • Stray Thoughts and Schematic (1)

    The second 5th day of Mirtul The gang met up today, and we received some exciting news. Kara's been accepted into the Univesity of Castow, I'm so happy for her! I know how hard she's been working and it finally paid off. It'll be difficult not …

  • Stray Thoughts and Schematics (2)

    (_Above the entry is a detailed blueprint of a beartrap with a brief note on how to improve the mechanisms_) The second ninth day of Mirtul Well it's been an interesting few days. I know how to swipe coins from a pocket now, pick locks...and a few …

  • Stray Thoughts and Schematics (3)

    3rd 2nd Day, Mirtul They took everyone. My grandmother, my Selise...my friend’s loves ones. They took them, and crippled grandfather. How will he be able to live like that? He’s always loved the outdoors, and practically lives for his hunting trips …

  • Stray Thoughts and Schematics (4-6)

    Stray thoughts and Schematics (4-6) 4th Second Day of Mirtul It's over. We killed him and we brought everyone back. Well, almost everyone. Kara's father did not make it, and I fear how it will affect her. Losing your parents is never easy, I …

  • The Healer's Diary I

    *23rd Day of Kythorn* Well, this has certainly been unexpected. Who would have ever thought that one's life could be so changed in but the course of a single afternoon? FIrst, it was lovely to see Aaron again, although it's clear that he's not been …

  • The Healer's Diary II

    *23rd Day of Kythorn* My hands are shaking so much I can hardly write, but I fear if I don't get this down on ink and parchment that I'll forget all that has happened over the course of this unbelievable day. I say unbelievable, but I mean it not in …

  • The Healer's Diary III

    *25th Day of Kythorn* I'm not sure what I was expecting of our second foray into danger, but I certainly think that we overestimated our own capabilities. After a day's break for the funeral and to spend some much-needed time with Father, Sebastian …

  • The Healer's Diary IV

    *28th Day of Kythorn* Just when I thought things couldn't get any more difficult, they do. Against my better judgement, the group chose to return to the bandit camp, even after Arseni got that strange marking on his hand which worries me very much -- I …

  • The Healer's Diary V

    *1st Day of Flamerule* It was foolish of me to think that coming back to Baemore would provide a moment's reprieve from all of the insanity that has been going on. Oh, how wrong I was -- and how scared I am to realize that trouble has followed us here, …

  • Healer's Diary VI

    *6th Day of Flamerule* My hands are shaking as I write. I can feel the heat of an angry flush in my cheeks that has risen up anew as I recount in my head the events of the past few days and I fear that I may scream—of course I won't _actually_ scream, …

  • Healer's Diary VII

    *8th Day of Flamerule* Is Baemore by coincidence more dangerous now than it was before I began this journey, or am I only now realizing corruption which has been going on beneath the surface all the while? I had thought that the mooka distribution …

  • Healer's Diary VIII

    *10th Day of Flamerule* This is what I expected, and yet the nausea that's risen in the pit of my stomach still cannot be eased by that expectation. The sight of it -- Baemore, my city, my home, alight on the evening horizon, the sounds of swords …

  • Healer's Diary IX

    *11th Day of Flamerule* It's over. _It's over_. At least I must hope that it is, else I am lost to know where we go from here. If the heavens can throw at us any worse than a colossus demon charged with the powers of our last four most …

  • Mireya's Letter I

    *28th of Eleasis* Father, Let me first apologize for causing you so much worry, but in the same stroke assure you that I am alive and well. I do not pretend to understand fully what has happened, but it hurts me to know that you were left in the …

  • Chronicles of Solanaceae I

    29th of Eleasis I have missed a lot in the time that I've been away it seems. Very little of it good news. It is bad enough to be burdened with hazy visions of my time with Caldwrath, a haze that seems to be slowly growing clearer as the momenenta …

  • Healer's Diary X

    *6th of Eleint* Finally, a lead... Until now, all I had to go off of was that he was with some friends in the south, but thank goodness I talked to Kosef -- he'd heard something, suspects that he's in Kestrel's Corner or... Or Hull. As little as …

  • Chronicles of Solanaceae II

    Eleint 4 I've been thinking about a lot of things the past few days. My regrets haunt me, in both daylight and within my dreams. I've been waking up in the middle of the night, cold and filled with dread every night since I returned. I wasn't able to …

  • The Healer's Diary XI

    *13th of Eleint* Things have gone so downhill after leaving Baemore these last couple of times, I wonder if it would not have served me better to listen to Father and just stay home with my family. Not only do we find out that Iona has gone off and …

  • Tales of the Huntress: Prologue

    _(This journal contains pages full of short entries dating several months back. A few noteworthy ones stand out)_ *Entry 1* I bought a journal in town today. Tavion said he's got one and likes to write in it, so I thought I'd give it a try. I'm not …

  • The Healer's Diary XII

    *18th of Eleint* Curse that man -- no, that _thing_ -- for what it's done! I expected this after what he said, I knew that there was nothing, no one else that he could take that would cut so deeply, and yet I was helpless to protect him. My baby …

  • A Blacksmith's Workings II

    18th of Eleint That creature doesn't seem like something I can fight. It has a presence to it I have never seen before. Its unnatural. I took the sword without thinking. I disrespected that shrine in order to use the Elf sword if necessary. And …

  • Healer's Diary XIII

    *21st of Eleint* Dear Anzo, I'm sorry. I must preface this letter by admitting that I've got no idea how -- or if -- I'll manage to send it off to Baemore. The place that we're in is strange and quite different from home, and I'm not entirely sure …

  • Tales of the Huntress I

    21st of Eleint My life has taken a strange turn since I wrote in my last journal. For one, I found out that Roy is planning on staying with the group long term it sounds like. Something to do with looking after the Fairchild girl, Anzo seems to be …

  • Tales of the Huntress III

    Unknown Date, The forest was a wonder to behold, but this city is indescribable. I've never seen such beauty and well I can't even think of a word for it. There's this sense of power and history here that just knocks you off your feet. If I were the …

  • Tales of the Huntress II

    Uknown Date, We did it! It looked a bit bleak for a moment there, but we did it! I still can't believe it. A dragon! We actually survived being attacked by a dragon. When Ms. Keylith brought us to the ruins we only knew we would be against …

  • Healer's Diary XIV

    *Unknown Date* I can't believe he's truly home. I haven't been able to sleep since we returned to Baemore last night. Somehow I thought that sitting up here, watching Sebastian doze away would calm my frayed nerves and put me at ease with the …

  • Letter to Anzo

    Anzo, First of all -- I told you to not read this until I'd left Baemore again, so if I'm still in town, fold this back up immediately and put it away. I know it's tempting, but for both of our sakes, I beg that you allow yourself to take this in at a …

  • Tales of the Huntress IV

    I think I'm finally starting to see why they were so keen on warning me when I first joined up on that trip to the forest. I knew they had been though something heavy, but the way Mireya was acting made it sound like whatever she lost to Bagoda might as …

  • The Healer's Diary XV

    *Date Unknown* How I rue ever taking up the life of adventure sometimes. All I had wanted was to be home for a spell, to see Sebastian settled in comfortably and make sure that he was going to be alright, to spend some time with my poor father — even …

  • Tales of the Huntress V

    We should have gone after Anzo sooner and we would have if I hadn't told Roy he needed to rest and wasted a day around town instead. Now all we have is the hope of Kestral's Corner, and it's my fault we could'nt get to those sewers sooner. That woman in …

  • Healer's Diary XVI

    I'm so tired. Physically, I'm exhausted. Even when I knew I wasn't rested up enough, I ended up spending every last ounce of my magical energy — the second time I've done such a thing in the short term. Just turning into a tiny fly feels like an …

  • A Blacksmith's Workings VII

    I fear Bagoda, I fear the creature that we fought in the sewers, but above all I fear my myself. Magic. It always comes back to magic. I'm beginning to despise it more and more. Bagoda and her magic. Anzo has run off because of Bagoda and Mireya. …

  • Tales of the Huntress VI

    5th of Marpenoth, It’s hard to believe it’s been less than a month since I’ve joined up with these people. I’ve been through so much with them in such a short time, and I care so much for all of them now. Which is why when we looked ready to fall …

  • A Blacksmith's Workings IX

    I have lost what is most important to me. My family. Kosef is dead. Anzo is gone. I have no words for this only sadness and rage. Sadness that Kosef is dead. I will never hear his voice again. I will never get to ask him for advice. He kept the …

  • Tales of the Huntress VII

    6th day of Marpenoth I've made a great many mistakes since starting this journey. I sold myself to a witch, let my guard down to be trapped inside the mind of someone else, and now I've attacked an ally out of anger and gotten a good man killed. …

  • Healer's Diary XVII

    *6th of Marpenoth* Where do the tragedies stop? We've witnessed so many and yet they never become any less horrifying, any less heartbreaking. Kosef... Good, honest man that he was, living for nothing but to survive and to keep his brothers safe and …

  • Letter to Anzo II

    Anzo, First off, I'm so sorry I couldn't tell you any of this eloquently in person. I know that everything must be so confusing for you, and even more so when I'm too emotional to explain myself properly -- to be honest with you, emotional is all I …

  • Healer's DIary XVIII

    *11th of Marpenoth* _Well_, what an absolutely insufferable, righteous nut-hook our dear mayor has turned out to be. I hesitate to speak ill of the family of an old ally such as Kaleb, but there is simply no getting around the idiocy and …

  • Tales of the Huntress VIII

    11th of Marpenoth, I'm worried for the people around me. All for different reasons, but connecting back to the same sources. The only one who seems to have all their sense together is Arseni. Our talk just confirmed that suspicion. Why must …

  • Tales of the Huntress IX

    15th of Marpenoth, Damn her. Damn that vile hag to the darkest pits of the abyss! Why didn't Mireya tell us sooner? If we could have gotten to the Duke or done something, then maybe... No. There's no what ifs or maybe in this. Bagoda schemed, …

  • Healer's Diary XIX

    *19th of Marpenoth* _Briar Davin Marsk_ Born 2nd 5th Day of Marpenoth This is all I have of him, some words written on a piece of parchment and the memory of how he felt in my arms. It will have to be enough. I have had my moment to mourn. A …

  • A Blacksmith's Workings XI

    15th of Marpenoth 3 Months ago I never saw myself entering the arena. Now I have won two group fights. They gave the prize to the fight to me since I was the only one left standing. I don't think I will keep this dagger though. Its too valuable to be …

  • Tales of the Huntress X

    27th of Marpenoth, I can't believe how reckless I've gotten! That fight was nearly the death of me and it was no ones fault but my own. I let the drow back me into the corner and had to resort to knocking myself out to take that damned witch with me! …

  • A Blacksmith's Workings XII

    27th of Marpenoth The town still does not trust us very much. They are afraid to deal with us, but at least our money is still good. We went to see the duke who was unaware of Mireya's child. He is worried about what Bagoda can do with an ally. It …

  • Healer's Diary XX

    *27th of Marpenoth* So now I know why she wanted him. Or rather, I know why she wanted a child. Why she wanted _him_, I can't imagine. Was this her way of getting back at me for ignoring her deals, for encouraging Aaron and the others to stay far …

  • Tales of the Huntress XI

    1st of Uktar, I've always wondered about my place within the group, but recent events have me doing more so than normal. I know Mireya had to have been hiding knowledge of her plan at the Brotherhood purposefully. How easily Aaron knew to follow her, …

  • The Healer's Diary XXI

    *1st of Uktar* Uktar... The Rotting, they call the month. Uktar has always been my least favorite time of the year. The meaning behind it -- the rotting away of the green and the oncoming of a deep freeze -- is depressing... and for one such as myself, …

  • Tales of the Huntress XII

    8th of Uktar, Damn. Mimics. Disgusting creatures! I can't believe I spent nearly that whole fight inside of one! I struggled and pulled as best as I could but nothing worked. I just remember the thing kept biting into me over and over again …

  • The Healer's Diary XXII

    *8th of Uktar* Well, that was beyond frustrating. Something that we thought would be so simple as gathering up a bit of old treasure turned into yet another fight, ending with yet another friend teetering on the precipice of death. On a positive note, …

  • Tales of the Huntress XIII

    13th of Uktar Well that was certainly an interesting train of events. We were chasing news of Lockley's stolen item and it seemed like it just set off a chain reaction of favors. Half orc criminals fleeing town, gambling gnomes, creepy Drow store …

  • The Healer's DIary XXIII

    *8th of Uktar* I'd never have imagined myself an outlaw, but it seems that this is the role in which I've been found. I can't imagine who we could have offended this time, but I really shouldn't be surprised -- upsetting people is what we seem to do …

  • Tales of the Huntress XIV

    Well we had a bit of a bend in the road on the way to the elves. Mercenaries decided to accept a bounty on our heads, and came close to getting mine. They started out swinging for me, so I shot back. Which I guess they weren't too happy about. That …

  • A Blacksmith's Workings XV

    8th of Uktar Who would want us dead? There are a few, but I am unsure who among them would send mercenaries after us. This is not like Bagoda, so for once I don't think she is involved. It could be the Brotherhood, but I would assume they would take …

  • Tales of the Huntress XV

    I have no idea what blighted date it is to be honest. I'm not even sure if any time has actually passed in the real world. I need a quick breather I think. And writing in this journal is nothing if not a decent stress outlet. Damned old wives …

  • The Healer's Diary XXIV

    *Unknown Date* Once again, another chunk of my life missing. Another year of life with my family worried, scared, suffering -- while we did what? Traipsed around in a storybook with people of fiction. And to what end was it all? I can hardly remember …

  • A Nightmare

    _The icy prickles of the breeze are the first thing the girl notices around her. She looks around, brows lifted in confusion and mouth open but not making a sound. The trees form a maze around her and her vision is clouded with the thick fog rolling in …

  • Tales of the Huntress XVI

    11th of Ches I spent a day in bed rereading this thing after I found out the consequences of my deal. I suppose I was trying to piece together who I've been these past few months. All I found was a lot of pointless declarations and promises to …

  • Tales of the Huntress XVII

    13th of Ches, Things are as bad as ever. I would say worse but in truth we're simply going deeper into the same problems. Aaron seems no less lost in his grief, but there's not much I can do for that. I offered my support and tried to let him know …

  • The Healer's Diary XXVI

    *13th of Ches* The Black is out to get us -- captured or killed, he doesn't seem to care which, as long as we're removed from the equation. The others would likely call me foolish, but I can't help but think that this doesn't make much sense. He's …

  • The Nightmare Continues

    _The girl stands in the clearing again, this time surrounded by a wall of dark brambles on all it's sides and already in armor. She stares at the bow in her hand confused._ _"Kill him!"_a voice shrieks. Dark and cackling._ _Her head turns up …

  • The Healer's Diary XXVII

    *Date Unknown* Contrary to what my experience in life so far would tell me, it seems that there _is_ a chance for what should be disaster to turn out for the better. By no fault of mine, Mrs. Marsk seems to have found out about Briar and the whole …

  • Heat of the Moment

    _If all else fails you can always just jump behind me and hide!_ She'd laughed then. She'd smiled and nudged him like always whenever she poked fun at him and kept going thinking it was going to be like any other fight. They'd take a few hits, get …

  • The Healer's Diary XXVIII

    *24th of Ches* I am a violent coalescence of emotions these days, a fragile wooden boat set sail on a savage sea of alternating joyful serenity and uncontrollable chaos. My mind is all but unsure on how to cope with all of the ups and downs of these …

  • A Blacksmith's Workings XXIV

    "Ding." "Ding." "Ding." The sounds of a hammer can be heard piercing the dark. The bright orange glow of the heated metal enters into view. Sparks erupt from the metal as a hammer strikes it illuminating the man. His face obscured by the shadows. The …

  • The Lost One's Tome I

    13th of Flamerule, I write this entry with quivering hands.  My final destiny lies before me, and I march towards it with anticipation.  For soon my blade shall taste the blood lf the vial creature that has slain my kin.  I will have my vengeance. …

  • The Lost One's Tome V

    Dear Arseni, I am unsure what exactly compelled me to write this, but I felt like it was necessary.  I was a stranger and an outsider and you sheltered me without any hesitation or doubt.  Few could claim to be so kind and noble.  You and your friends …
