Excerpt from Rin’s Journal translated from Halfing
Dearest Mother and Father I’m beginning to believe my brother hates me. First I’m dispatched as a common courier to deliver a message then shanghaied into this band of adventurer’s to retrieve some magic wands to save their city.
So first of all the wands are located in cave yea the cave I came to deliver a message about of course, and that’s not even the worst of it. Once in the cave we have to ride in a rickety contraption over an eerie green glowing lake yes a GREEN GLOWING lake.
Of course before we got to the other side one of the half-orcs olken by name decided to take a swim in the lake. Once on the other side Allen led us to the location of one of the wands. Did I mention that location happened to be in a side inhabited by spiders and you know how much I hate spiders, and these weren’t your garden variety spider either no they were the size of grain wagons back in the hillshire farms.
Ok so we manage to dispatch the GIANT spiders and keep exploring looking for one of these damn wands and what do we come across save a spider that is the size of a farm house and that’s not even have of it after perforating it with a few dozen arrows then the thing starts speaking in undercommon no less and starts blubbering about surrendering and it knows where the wands are and we will never find them without it so ok I lower my bow and except its surrender then Tolken shouts out “no quarter for the ebon triad” and walked kinda woodenly towards it and begins to slice on it likes it’s a honey ham till it fell down twitching.
So great now how are we going to find it so then Rink does something and then points up in the webbing and says the wand is over there.
Have I told you guys about Rink he is a human who has some dragon blood or something in him since I’ve seen him do some amazing things like fling a fireball around send magical bugs at his enemies oh and one more minor thing HE HAS A GARDEN INSTEAD OF HAIR ON HIS HEAD seriously it still kinda weirds me out but he is a good guy I think.
Since I saw him and Will consulting near Tolken after he killed the spider in no less then three different languages undercommon was the only one I knew I only caught about every third word something about not himself domination and then Will pulls out a scroll and starts reading it when Blud went to heal Tolken I’m pretty sure I’m the only one that saw it. Since it was right in front of me while I was harvesting some interesting bits off of that giant speaking spider. Niether Will or Rink are saying what they did to Tolken so now I’m wondering are they dominating him or did they free him from domination.
And then of course while inspecting the room we come across a large human female who kinda acts like Uncle Corus after he got kicked in the head just a tad crazy.
Well enough for now I need some sleep I need to keep my eyes and ears open like uncle Eldami taught me and remember no matter how frightening and scary something is put enough arrows in it and its just dead and dead isn’t scary those damn undead on the other hand are scary.
