  • Talmuds Journal

    After closing down the forge, I packed my gear and donned my armor. The village kids were wondering where I was going; they begged to come along. I told them to stay behind, and when I told them why I was going, they all stayed put. I announced to the …

  • From the journal of Cassius Wolfslayer

    The past several days have been so much fun! I feel like now I am finally living the life of one of the characters from my books. I thought living the life of a thief was a good time, but living the life of the hero is shaping up to be really exciting… …

  • Book of Nod, Page Three

    I do say, when things seem to be looking up, the rush of excitement at it’s peak, they must fall inevitably downward. Tragic as it is, I had missed out on a slave today. I had rescued him from the clutches of his own comrade goblins, but he had proved to …

  • Talmud4

    Deeper and deeper we delved into the twisting tunnels and cramped corridors of the Shadowfell Keep. We were sorely tested by droves of the undead, but we pressed onwards until we came to a wide room where an evil priest was going about his dark deeds. …

  • Cassius5

    We returned to Winterhaven and rested for the night. The next morning we discovered that Talmud had recovered. In what might be described as a waking dream, he began working on something over at the smithy. We decided to leave him in town and went back …

  • suldren6

    We met up with Linny's hired help while Linny went to speak to his associate. At first glance I thought he was the largest dwarf I've ever seen. Upon closer inspection I realized he was just a human with a large beard dressed like a dwarf. Is he ashamed …

  • nod8

    Kalarel is truly a delightful fellow. His arrogance knows no bounds and I of course find that humorous in a coward! He was not a man to be slaughtered once, but twice, as luck would have it! Granted, it wasn’t entirely easy as this time he seemed …

  • Talmud's Journal

    Sitting on a ship that is sitting on the waves, I study the suit of armor that my friends picked up while I was away. I let my mind wander as I inspect the tiny, overlapping plates. Seldomn have I really questioned my path in life; I've always been …

  • From the Belly of the dragon

    I haven’t written in here but I really need to vent. It all deals with Nod wanting for us to do some stupid oath to make sure we aren’t lying to each other. There are ways to handle that type of suggestion, and in my opinion he could of gone by it an …

  • nod11

    I am at ease now. Surprisingly, no one had interest in becoming oathcircle brethren, save one. It appears that the only attempt Suldren made to ally everyone was to appease me. That was not what I wanted. What I had required was a bond to them all. It …

  • Cassius12

    We had a well-earned rest as the crew of the Cortadormar waited for its chance at a nighttime raid on Lurd. Afterwards, Suldren and I confronted Nod. He confessed to impersonating Suldren through a seagull and alerting the governor to our plan. He told …

    All I can seem to think on is misery as of late, this collar keeping me in this state. This collar will take some adjusting to; some considerable adjusting to. I think part of the magics in this collar keep my moods more consistent, at least, that’s what …

  • cassius14

    I’m writing this down as fast as I can, because for all I know another horde of zombie bugbears will come crashing out of the brush and attack us. We’ve found the childhood home of Kun-We, and his homecoming has been far from idyllic. As we journeyed …

  • Suldren15

    It has been some time since I have written in regards to my adventures. That's because I don't know how I feel about them and I haven't wanted to give them much thought either. I can't put them aside forever so here they are. If I can't even appeal to a …

    Been couple o' days since we became stranded on this ‘ere isle. Nary all o' th' crew made th' ship wi' food an' supplies t' repair Cortadormar. Some came wi' tales o' bugbears rottin' e'en as they walked, tearin' men limb from limb. A wee few returned …

    I am not well. Rather, speaking, I am too well for my own good. Right, from the beginning… We were investigating the X on the map we had stolen from the governors mansion and after navigating our way through dead bugbears and tropical and savage …

  • cassius17

    As we continued to plumb the depths of the caverns below the ruined temple, we discovered a green dragon who was protecting his hoard. The dragon's name is Nayliprox and he, like most everyone else we found, reviled the one named Crav. We talked at …

  • nod18

    Dragons are difficult. Bargaining with selfish breeds are rather appalling actually. Considering I think we take care of ourselves rather well to begin with, bartering with a greedy dragon for assistance seemed a waste of our time. Granted, I imagine …

    We have finally abandoned the forsaken homeland of Kun-We. After a few days on that abysmal island, and seeing the horror that had been wrought there, I have found much sympathy for our Mr. We. It seems like his shoulders carry an incredible burden, …

  • Suldren20

    We made our way onto the merchant vessel and I could not stop myself from being impressed. Between the size of the ship and it’s layout it was basically like a floating city. After we bought and sold some equipment a few of the other Daggers and myself …

  • cassius21

    The drow ship and the Cortadormar exchanged volleys back and forth quite a bit. We played a game of cat and mouse for a while, although I’m not sure who was the cat in this case. Finally they came up alongside us only to let several shipmates board us …

  • nod22

    I do have some growing concern as we continue to assail this fortress. First and foremost, it being a fortress to begin with. Second, that we are underground where the Drow live. Granted, this place is supposedly abandoned of drow, but still, unsettling. …

  • talmud23

    Walking the great hewn halls of this old, forgotten Drow stronghold, I am filled with awe. With its walls as thick as a man, great blocks of cut stone that fit seamlessly together, and a flawless mixture of hand made interior and natural features, this …

    You put into port in some small town, still trying to keep a low profile seeing as some fierce bounty hunter was out for your blood. One night you awoke to screams on deck and all ran up to find Nod, Talmud and Linny trying to subdue Vuden. Talmud swept …

  • cassius25

    Just when I thought we would have a little bit of time to relax following our departure from the Underdark, all hell has broken loose on the ship. A while back we saved several trinkets and baubles of a nautical nature for the governor of Lurd; Curcai, I …

  • suldren25

    Our group has been considerably weakened over the last two days. This fact doesn't pain me as much as the nagging feeling that had I handled things differently we'd still be a group of six instead of four. I wish Vuden and Talmud the best in their travels …

  • Kunwe25

    Vuden and Talmud have left the crew, and Nod has been freed of his collar. The collar, of course, did not prevent him from kidnapping the mayor of Lurd to deliver him to the compass, so perhaps its loss is no great thing. Vuden was a stalwart and loyal …

  • nod25

    As I write these words down they are the words of a fae who is free of that blasted collar and free finally of my honest words. These words, however, are bitter sweet, having gained my freedom and lost a dear friend. Perhaps I should start from the …
