Through the Portal

Mishklo’s Journal

I followed this group of adventurers to a portal that would open in a few hours. Iíve always wondered where it went, but never actually journey into it myself. Iíve seen other go in, however, Iíve yet to see anyone come out, so I decided it was best not to, at the time anyway. Watching this group I figured Iíd ask if I could go along, but before I could make my presence known the orc came charging at me. I side stepped, came into the clearing. The first thing I said was that I mean them no harm. We talked for a bit and it was then that I realized just how much I have yet to learn about the world in general. I know enough about my home to stay safe, and live rather comfortably, but the rest of the world is so strange to me. After I convinced them that neither I nor Moonlight were werewolves, I was asked if I was going to go through the portal. It was a now or never thing, so I figured Iíd go if they thought Iíd be of some use to them.

The first thing I noticed after stepping through the portal was daylight. The entire area was boxed in by large walls, and flora almost waist high was everywhere. There was also a statue in the center that appeared to be staring at me. I was taking my time to observe the area when the Orc, Korítac is his name, walked up to the statue, and was hit with several thorns. A battle between us and the carnivorous plants of this area began. It was rough to start, but a little fire and some determination to live saw us trough. In the end it was decided that we should clear all the foliage of this ďGardenĒ before exploring the tower. There was some confusion as to how I would fare where I stood to watch and make sure all of it burned, but everything turned out okay, I just need to prepare a few lesser restores tomorrow. The strange bird, Seren is her name, said something about snow capped mountain peaks surrounding the place, so Iím not sure if Iíll even be able to get my spells, but Iíll try anyway, and see what happens. I just want to go through the area quickly before we enter this tower, see if anything useful survived.
