We left that morning to go talk to Laurabec, but Tiljann kept drawing attention to her with her faerie-ness. A gnome called Gopher suddenly started singing some song and Tiljann joined in. Apparently, Gopher met with Ettin-nifty, some fancy-seela-bard-who-super-legendary-or-something. Tiljann really wanted to meet him, but he was never seen again after going to some underwater temple. So, we figured we can go find the temple and see what happened to him, and not at all because there might be treasure in an underwater temple.
We had to look for a bit, but it wasn’t too hard to find. We used the underwater-breathing scroll Gopher had to search inside, and we were surprised to find air in the main chamber. It was like a giant bubble or something. Oh, and there were weird squids and crabs inside. There was even a skum, whatever that is. In any case, we killed ’em dead. It was pretty easy, although one of the crabs spat out a bunch of acid on us and that really hurt. When do crabs spit acid? That was really weird, but then again, I saw weirder stuff.
Tiljann found a secret seela mark on the walls, where a myth of the Aquilline (Not Owl-killing, like I thought before) Heart was carved. Something about where the heart rested ‘where the souls of the dead gather’ and something about black rain across the land and blah blah blah I WANTED TREASURE NOT STORIES. Hmph. Either way, TIljann figured that’s where Ettin-nifty went, since legendary bards go where legendary stuff is. She said her goodbyes and left after talking with everyone. I suppose I shoulda been nicer when she left, but I still wanted treasure. There was no treasure.
When we got back to Seaquen and finally talked to Laurabec and her giant TALKING eagle. I dunno what it said, but it TALKED. I wanted to buy it, but she said it wasn’t for sale. She said she wanted to make a super-temple with the other eight priesty-groups to make them stop fighting each other, but they’re too busy… fighting each other. With words, not swords. I’m better with the sword-fighting, not the word-fighting part.
Here they are, so I don’t forget them:
Licorice — Goddess of Pilgrimages — Ragesian Druids
Storkman — God of Knowledge — Ragesian Philosophers
Just-A-Key — Goddess of Strength — Ragesian Savages
Ricky — God of Battle — Ostaliner Mercenary Captain
Serpent-mus — God of Healing — Ragesian Hospitalers
Shelly — God of Sorcery — Sindairese Exiles
Tusk — God of Ancestors — Dasseni Dwarves
Urdull — God of Seas — Seaquen Locals
I might have screwed up the names, but whatever.
Laurabec said it might take a LONG time to talk to everyone and get them to get along with her super-temple idea, so maybe we could do some other stuff if talking to people gets boring. And we’re probably not gonna treasure for this, either. But SUPER-TEMPLE! It’d be so awesome, with fancy shiny windows and lots of priesty people being friends and stuff. I like priesty people. They’re nice. Unless they the evil priesty people. Then they’re not nice.
I’ll write sometime later Mr. Book. Dont’cha worry none, I won’t stab the priesty people. Unless they need a third opinion about the super-temple.
