What an eventful last few days its been! I guess a quick summary will suffice (as if I could ever forget this adventure): Our barge was attacked by a ghostly apparition of a woman who was brutally murdered by a cursed shaman in the hopes of gaining more spiritual power. Most of the crew members are either dead or gone mad, which truth to be told is their fault for not staying close to the rest of us. Oh! Also the barge had run aground and there is no way to get it back into the water of our own means. Flower
-the masked lady who doesn’t seem to want to give me her name- speaks Infernal and was able to communicate with the spirit and as a result we started on a second journey. What the goal is—who really knows? Either way this has been so very exciting and dangerous so far.
Either way, we found Lizardmen who have been so good as to guide us on this adventure to kill an evil shaman. They are so amazing! They lead us to a nest of cockatrice and Tartemis went in to collect an egg, I must admit I have more respect for him now. We took the egg to an island inhabited by a decedent of the evil shaman (I never asked his name so I decided its Jah-Mon…it sounded fitting), I spent some hours resting next to our two guides. I even shared a rabbit with them! They sort of remind me of Nadoo in that they are quiet and noble in stature but unlike Nadoo they do not play pranks on me. I miss Nadoo; I hope when I return home adorn with the scales of all the evil dragons I have defeated that he will wish to speak with me.
At the moment I am resting with the others in an abandoned (or seemingly anyways) bandit camp after a rather unpleasant time with another spirit. He wasn’t a bad guy once we managed to free him from a binding spell the evil shaman put on him. When he was bound—he was so powerful! Felt bad for Gregor getting all beaten up while the others worked on destroying the seal. Sadly I wasn’t any help aside from trying to make the spirit dematerialize long enough for Gregor to have a reprieve. I doubt I will ever have the strength of a dragon but I need to work harder on harnessing my other talents. Think thats about it.
Gregor: A paladin…which means that he is rather uptight prude. Might take some getting use to really. Oddly enough he knows nothing of religion which is kind of silly in my opinion though he seems to be reading up on it.
Flower: As competent and mysterious as the last masked person, but she has a better smell than the other guy. Doesn’t talk much at all though, even Xen’zel spoke more to me.
Kira: She reminds me of Genitalia, which makes me cringe a little. I sort of get the feeling I am going to do something stupid in front of her and she is going to scold me, just like sister. She seems to be good with a bow but other than that I don’t have much of an impression of her.
Think thats enough writing for now, nap time.
Note to self: Cockatrice egg omelet is very tasty, no wonder Jah-Mon wanted an egg for his troubles.
