Hi Mr. Book!
We k Wait, nearly spoiled the story~
So, we left the prison to head back to Lyceum, right? On our way back, the storm turned into a giant storm of lots of lightning and wind, and we got jumped by the guy we were looking for: LEE SQUIDOMANCER. He summoned up a couple of flying statues and even brought along his pet squid to try and kill us. We were kinda tossed about like some bits of meat in a big bowl of soup, which was not fun. I think Rylik got dragged down REALLY far underwater by the squid. I got clocked (not with an real clock, but a
metaf metta I got hit really hard) by one of the statues and I couldn’t really see straight for most of the fight. Esme kinda had to take the Asha tried to keep the squidomancer’s minions at bay as Breora and Nadia managed to teleport to dry land and take the fight to Lee. Rylik was nearly ripped to shreds by the statues after he escaped the squid’s tentacle embrace, but he foolishly goaded them on in an effort to draw them from their master. It worked, admittably… but blind faith in others is often the downfall of a would-be hero. He should be thankful we were there to end the fight quickly.
After we struck the killing blow, he tried a last-ditch effort to kill us all; by commanding the storm to tear us asunder, as his very body was turned to dust in the wind. Breora fumbled about with the control rod before finally commanding the storm to cease. We barely managed to escape with our lives,
all for the sake of some worthless city. If we had let the storm run its course, we could have but it was worth it!
So anyways, on our way back to Seaquen, the giant eagle that Laurabec owned(the
Owlki Aquiline Cross lady we helped make the super-temple with) flew by and met up with us. He had Laurabec’s ‘ranseur’, which I guess is a fancy word for pointy stick. I guess she helped out a lot of people escape the storm, but she got swept up in some waves and probably died. Since we helped stop the storm, he said that made us just as heroic. There was lots of hurt people and destroyed boats and stuff, especially the Shahalesti ones that came by. I hope the princess didn’t get hurt; she seemed nice. Since Mr. Takasi (the giant eagle we were talking with) lost his master, he said he was going to die someplace. I thought that was kinda stupid, but Esme said that we should let him go. A bird that was that sad wasn’t gonna help us anytime soon anyways.
When we finally got to Seaquen, everyone decided that Ragesia was a big problem and that they had to do something about it. A little late to decide that, but some people are slow thinkers, I guess. Since winter is about to end near Gate Pass, the bad guys are gonna start trying to make their way to Seaquen and the rest of Dassen. From what a bunch of people are saying, I guess King Steppenwolf nearly got assassinated. The Headmaster said we probably should go to Dassen and see if we could get the King to help us stop the Ragesians. I dunno, but I don’t think he’d be ready to talk to people after he nearly got killed; no matter how famous we are.
Oh, we’re also SUPER FAMOUS. (Eat that, Giorgio!) Everyone is super-nice and gives us tasty treats and other stuffs… I don’t even have to steal stuff to get cool stuff anymore! Esme wasn’t too sold on everything, though; she was still super nervous about spies hiding behind friendly faces and that kinda thing.
She worries too But we can’t be too careful.
The ‘noble leaders’ of Seaquen directed us to search the squidomancer’s old home, in case there was any mention of the master he mentioned in his dying breath. We managed to break into the lower-level labs that he kept away from us before. There were a few quality items that were better off in our hands, but one interesting bit of information was a small case with a note from a person named ‘Cai’. Apparently, the ’master’s army’ is continuing to grow, and the new passcode to ‘approach the mount’ is ‘Eshu’. The letters seems to allude to the existance of a book of biomantic secrets that was supposed to be sent to Rylik’s master… a most intriguing piece of information. Their latest ‘creations’ are supposed to be suited to the frozen tundra and causing hell for wizards and mages alike with just their touch.
Considering our current… aquaint That’s probably bad for Breora and Rylik… But we killed a squidomancer! We should be fine.
We got about a week before the Headmaster says we should probably head out. In the meanwhile, we’re supposed to rest up and see if any of the students at Lyceum can help make us any magic stuff we might need… for some gold, of course. Magic-making stuff probably costs a lot.
I’m super excited to meet th We should take what we can and But wh
