Astrid’s Journey

Finding acceptance by others that do not know you is easy. Finding acceptance by the one that knows you the best is never easy. This is the one universal truth that I have learned in the months that I have traveled abroad.

To find that acceptance I traveled south past the Grungir Forest and over the Kodar Mountains until I came to the lands of the Gypsies. There I met an old fortune woman who claimed to be able to speak with those beyond the veil. There she claimed to have spoken with my father. His final words of wisdom were thus: “To begin to find self-acceptance you must start where all are accepted, the center of all things, the city on the sea.”

So I have traveled the land and sailed the sea until I have finally arrived at the center of all things, the city on the sea, Absalom.

Tythe’s Journey

Some questions should not be asked, and some answers are better left undiscovered, as I have learned. When three unsavory-looking, well-armed men arrived in the tavern and began asking questions it was obvious that they were looking for someone. And from what I could overhear from the upstairs landing it was obvious that it would not be in my best interest to be found.

With a flip of the coin that my father had given me for luck, I slipped out through an upstairs window and disappeared into the night. In order to disappear I found myself going to the one place that anyone who does not wish to be found can go: Absalom.

Zandu’s Journey

The answer to that question came to be in the form of an old man. We both took shelter from the approaching storm in an abandoned cabin along some nameless road. With a fire lit in the fireplace to fend off the cold we shared our rations and tales of our travels. He told me that he had once been an explorer seeking out old ruins and secrets for the Pathfinder Society based in Absalom— a society whose purpose is to learn the mysteries of the world and find answers to undiscovered questions.

We talked well into the night until I nodded off from the prior day’s travels. When I awoke the fire had burned itself low. The old man was no where in the cabin and there were no footsteps in the newly fallen snow around the cabin.

So, I found myself booking passage aboard a ship on route to the city of Absalom to see what mysteries and answers await me there.

Salma’s Journey

I awoke this morning to the sounds of the city preparing for the day’s festivities. It is the Second Moonday of Lamashan and the Harvest Feast. It should prove to be quite an interesting day.

Excerpts from the Journal of Henric Rickmen

13 Gozran 4709

Today whilst I was cataloging tomes in the library of the Academae I uncovered an unusual find. It was an obscure tome entitled ‘Whispers of the Immortal’ written in an older dialect of Hallit. It may prove to be of worth in my research.

18 Gozran 4709

‘Whispers of the Immortal’ is indeed an incredible find. It was apparently written by an unknown disciple of none other than Tar-Baphon himself. It documents his master’s journey from life to undeath and then on to divine ascension. The tome is certainly old enough to be from the time of Tar-Baphon’s rule. I will need to investigate this further.

20 Gozran 4709

My investigations into the origins of this fabulous tome have revealed that it was discovered by an adventurer within an ancient, trap-laden crypt in the Fangwood Forest. However my superiors claim that the authenticity of ‘Whispers of the Immortal’ can in their words “hardly be held credulous.” It seems that I will have to take it upon myself to validate this work.

22 Desnus 4709

My investigations have indeed corroborated my hypothesis concerning the locations of several seals covertly placed by an elite circle of the Shining Crusade with the intent to imprison Tar-Baphon. With the information that I have gathered from this tome and evidence that I found within the ancient crypt I believe that one of the seals is located somewhere within Darkmoon Vale. I am taking a sabbatical from my studies at the Academae and heading there to confirm my theory. I will be leaving on a ship for Almas in the morning.

15 Sarenith 4709

Perhaps it is just the sense of confinement from being aboard ship for the past three weeks that is the cause of my uneasiness. In my dreams I find myself upon a large stretch of unending, desolate wasteland with nothing but the blowing wind for companionship. No matter how far I travel in that dream place do I find any indication of life or civilization. Despite it all I find my time there oddly comforting.

23 Sarenith 4709

These confounding dreams continue to hound me night after night. There are times that it almost seems like the constant incessant blowing wind contains more than just the breeze. It almost seems that there is the faintest sound of a voice being carried upon the wind. What it is or what it is trying to communicate I cannot discern. Perhaps it is Nethys attempting to guide me? Perhaps the next time I am in this dream state I shall follow the voice in the wind and see where it takes me.

21 Erastus 4709

Today I arrived in Almas. The last month of the journey aboard the ship has been disjointed and I have no real recollection of it. Apparently I fell ill with fever and laid delirious for the remainder of the trip. The captain of the Celestial Sea informed me that I drifted in and out of consciousness and rambled incoherently about endless plains, the silent wind and a city of impossible proportions. Unfortunately I cannot recall any of these possible revelations.

Regardless the first order of business will be to secure proper provisions and recruit suitable companions in my endeavor.

23 Erastus 4709

This morning finds us on the road heading north from Almas. Hymmir assures me that we will arrive in the area of Darkmoon Vale within the fortnight. I hope that his assertions that he is well versed in the area will prove factual. After all of this time, being this close to my goal the sense of urgency is almost intolerable.

From information that I gained in Almas I believe that the seal is located somewhere in the catacombs beneath an ancient dwarven monastery in the shadow of Droskar’s Crag at the foothills of the Five Kings Mountains. Hopefully Grimbal lives up to his reputation as the best trapfinder in all of Andoran. The catacombs will undoubtedly be trap-laden when we arrive.

1 Arodus 4709

We have finally arrived at the crumbling ruins of the old monastery. The dreams have continued and the voice is calling louder to me. I have done my best to conceal the topic of my nightly dreams from the others. However I am beginning to suspect that Cilios is becoming aware that there is more to my nightly unrest than I am admitting to. I probably should not have brought another acolyte of Nethys with me. Regardless he will not interfere with my destiny. For that is what the whispering voice has promised awaits me within the hidden vaults below.

2 Arodus 4709

The kobolds in the lower caverns were little more than an annoyance and scattered before the combined might of Raksmit and Hymmir. Hymmir feels that we should hunt down the remainder of the tribe. They appear to be avoiding us for the time being. I am quite certain they will no longer prove to be a hindrance in our search for the Seal.

3 Arodus 4709

Grimbal has indeed proven himself invaluable in navigating the many traps that were laid within these ancient vaults. Even the pathetic attempts of the Seal’s guardian to defend the lower vault could not stand in the path to my destiny. I will keep him trapped within his crystal cage for the time being. He is powerless against me now but his knowledge of the Seal and these vaults may yet prove useful to my research.

We have located the Seal of the Whispering Tyrant within the deepest vault. It is exactly as it appeared within my dreams. Now all that remains is to unlock its ancient secrets. I stand at the threshold of greatness.

Suddenly, right in the middle of combat

We have a new campaign over here: Hugh’s Mwangi Expanse Campaign

Serpent’s Skull campaign. Hopefully. But not much in the way of journals this time.
