The Path of Velkriss

Unfortunate Departure (among other things)

Dear Diary,

My death is avenged, by Febronia of all people. The bitch is dead nonetheless, I am happy, I sleep well this night. Well, there are other reasons, but the 4 foot tall cunt being a dead woman is certainly a contributing factor. Perhaps I should talk to someone about this misogynistic diatribe that I find spews out of my mouth at every opportunity.

To baator with that.

Plenty to report. Don’t know where to start.

Knew there was something off about Eldrian, found myself correct, as usual. Told Ramon to steal his key, and he resisted initially but eventually cooperated, the resistance was of no great consequence this time. This time. Hopefully my talk will have straitened him out.

I digress.

This… Phabos (not sure how it is spelled, venturing a wild guess) entangled us the way the Febronia usually does our enemies. Same type of training? Does that associate them? Unlikely, spells can be shared among many disciplines, Siegmund taught me that.


Anyway, Phabos’ motivations unclear, Eldrian claims to have known him extremely intimately, claims him to be a much nobler person, which leads me to three conclusions.

1) Eldrian did not know him nearly as well as he thought he did.

2) His motives are noble in a way that is yet incomprehensible to us.

3) He has fallen far from grace.

Considering the taint’s involvement, my gold goes to conclusion #3. Anything could happen.

Interesting revelation as to the Grim Azure, my assumption was that it was some sort of device for the spreading of the taint. Wondering exactly how one would presume to control such a killing machine, I doubt it would follow orders out of gratitude.

Laressa parted with us, for the best, tactically I had trouble directing her, she seemed to question orders for the novelty of doing so, and in terms of arcane fire support she was nothing to write home about. She seemed almost immediately replaced by this new girl who calls herself “Dij” quite obviously a pseudonym, but I needn’t pry, I prefer monosyllabic names, easier to shout. Precious seconds preserved, not aware of any abilities she might have.

This “Dij” went into Klaus’ tent, but then left in a huff. Poor boy, with all the gusto that he tells a story, still daunted by that all intimidating other gender.

Grizzilda fucks like a lioness. I think I took more damage in my tent than I did on the actual battlefield, wouldn’t have it any other way. Nothing that good is free however, in one way or another, she is playing some angle on me, might as well enjoy it.

Concerned in terms of Celeste, with her… not sure how to word it. Partner? Girlfriend? Lover? Without Laressa she may deteriorate into self-destructive behavior if their emotional attachment was half as intimate as their physical one. A chain is only as strong as it’s weakest link, and heartbroken links tend to be very weak indeed.

Hopefully this can be dealt with in the downtime to our next assignment, even I tire of the battles. Also there is the matter of Trot Fox. Hopefully he is more of a business man than a trickster, if there is one thing I trust a rogue to do is try to get more than is offered, the trick is to make what you are offering the more profitable option. Working on my approach as we speak. Hopefully my reputation has spread to him as more than just your average, naive, noble whelp.

My dwarven grammar has improved and from what I hear my renver is flawless. Some vocabulary words confound me, but all in good time.

Noticing Cooperation

Dear Diary,

Have not made an entry since graduating combat school. Much to talk about. Start with the recent news.

The company was resistant to my orders at first, but as the title points out, beginning to notice some cooperation. The little one referred to me as “Sir” and followed my orders without any words. That one is very useful. Others seem to disobey orders for the sake of disobeying them. “I don’t follow orders!” was repeated many times. Must think of what to say to this. Disappointed by Hector, felt that he might follow my orders simply out of the common sense of doing so. Perhaps feel threatened by me? Can’t be sure. Something to worry about once we leave the keep.

Disturbed by company’s recent talk of “spirits” of note in the mysterious “Senor Lobo” believe that is draconic for “Mister Wolf.” My draconic needs polishing, could be wrong. Should talk to Febronia about this, seems to specialize in spiritual matters.

Noticed a change in Eldrian. His accent is slightlty different. Definite change in behavior. Asked him about it, but deflected. Safe to assume has something to do with pool of blood. Yet again, I find myself having to ask help of Febronia. The change is most definitely not somatic.

Watched another warrior fall in combat today. Upsetting. Another son without a father. Wondering if Hector and I should tell son the truth. Principles dictate tell him the truth, his father died by his own blade so he would not hurt others. Yes, truth is the best option. The lad will grow into a hell of a warrior.

Communicated with another spirit. Disturbed by the amount of spirits in recent journal entries. Walked into this keep starkly disbelieving of the beyond. A trip to baator has made me believe. The spirit of the ghost we had just taken care of. (Wondering how a ghost can have a ghost. So many questions.) Tried to turn Hector, Ramon, and I against one another. Failed, but had I not spoken up, we all would have believed it was only us hearing it. Wonder how many people are hearing this voice and not speaking up?

Doing well with my Dwarven studies. My spoken dwarven is not at its best. My vocabulary is improving.

Learned how to write and pronounce phrase “A dragon, scram!” Translates to “durgarn a° // valergos°” Might come in handy. Who knows?

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
