Day = 18th of Tarsakh, 1396 DR. Gold = 4000~ Health = Healthy and happy.

Been getting back into the swing of things. Saving the world, taking names and being woefully outclassed by random adventurers. Still, at least they need someone to deal with the traps and locks! That said, I've been doing some fairly heroic stuff, being at the front with my shield and bashing the shins right in the bony-bit, the part that really stings. Still don't like the snapping sound it makes when I hit them really hard, but that's just part of being an adventurer I guess - rolling with the bad stuff.

Gosh, so much has happened. Scheduling my expedition to find what this darned key opens, adventuring with Thurgrim (he's a goodie, but I'm sure I'll remember that), and the Dale Wars, I've certainly kept myself occupied. Been doing more jobs than I can count, the golds good, nice to have my wand-belt all filled up, though I find them running out of charge as fast as I can order them.

Having nightmares after the thing that happened with Caru and Raznor. Reminded me of the Dream-Eater. Lots of dead friends. Pale faces and cold eyes.

Still, the life of a Cyrrollalean is never a lonely one. I've got plenty of friends, and I'll carry them all with me, alive and dead. Think it'd be nice to see them all again, too, even if we're all in different places in the end. I hope Cyrrollalee keeps the door open up there, even if I'm dead I want to have an adventure around!

Reminder: Send a letter to Abelard, a present and a congratulations on his wedding plans.
Send a letter to Oscar, he's always interested in my adventures, plus he always tells ma and da what I'm doing (the little sneak).
Get a gift for Thurgrim, he's always watching out for me.
She stared ahead in thought and frowned,
Then at the ground below -
It wouldn't do to turn around...
So on, she chose to go.

Day = 20th of Tarsakh, 1396 DR. Gold = 5000~ Health = Injured.

Got hit out of the swing of things. Or fell out of the swing of things, sounds better. Defending Harrowdale was a lot harder than I thought it would be, put my shield up the wrong way against one of those orcs and he's gone ahead and nearly broken my arm. Took a few more hits to the head than I like, and drinking that Darkblight stuff has got me really feeling weird. No wonder this stuff is contraband. I should ditch the other two bottles or give them to Thurgrim.

Made me feel like wanting to go back to Vineshade. I almost died and seeing those rebels up by the barricade just reminded me of the blue and gold militia uniforms dad and all my brothers wear. Imagine me, coming home in a knight's uniform with a big bag of gold. Reckon I'd be in their goodbooks for years.

If I do leave, I'll have to give the key to Thurgrim. I won't even get to explore it myself but I'd definitely send him a letter. He hates paperwork but I bet he reads okay. I'd miss not diving through dungeons and danger, being that plucky so-and-so up at the front, toe-to-toe against the baddies. I don't think I want to leave just yet. I've not even got a hang of this adventuring thing proper!

I'll head back home when they hear my name on the caravans, and bards sings songs of my friends up and down the Sword Coast.

Two more loose pieces of parchment were slotted into the journal.
Standing rebels in armoured attire,
Drawing the soldier's laughing ire,
An army ran forward, the other prepared,
The glint of steel; the weapons they bared!

A strike, a second, falling, flagging,
The soldiers dropping, bleeding, lagging,
As arrows landed row upon row,
Then marching mages came in tow!

But battered, broken, reeling, tired,
Whirling, whining, nocked and fired,
Hard-won, adventurers in bloody sheen,
Tended their wounded,
And ended the scene.


Orcs would hide and wait and bide,
Along the snowy mountains wide,
For many a year, at point of spear,
We have beat them back,
Wrack! Whack!
Out in the snow to freeze and moan,
We have beat them back.

Down the mountain, against the crown,
They raid, kill and look on a town,
Upon that land, a soldier will stand,
With sword to drive them out,
Bout! Snout!
With duty kept within his breast,
And sword to drive them out!

The glint of steel, the pain they feel,
To lay them low and make them reel,
Though on his own, a knight alone,
The orcs will eat him whole.
Whole! Soul!
As he lay there on his own,
The orcs shall eat him whole.

So take up arms and ring alarms,
Drive them from your homeland farms,
Stand in lead with your knight and bleed,
And fly the dragon proud!
Crowd! Loud!
Stand together with your friends,
And fly the dragon proud!
She stared ahead in thought and frowned,
Then at the ground below -
