Hello again Mr. Book! I kinda lost track of time, but I’m writing now so that’s good, okay?
So… uh. We looked through the ruins and didn’t find much, except for some shiny necklace that Rhakesh found. Shava said it was charmed or something so that you could speak Elfish, but not anything else. It was weird, but Rhakesh liked it. We also found some rats and stuff, and they were hungry so they tried to eat us. We killed ‘em and threw ’em in the river, because we read something in the tower that said ’water always kills them’ or something. I think it did the trick, because the rats just became soggy and wet instead of ker-sploding in fire to become alive again.
THEN we went to the ‘Shrine of Anyariel’. I had to stop to spell that because it sounded important. It’s this big fountain that looks like a willow tree that’s all dried up. Everyone was kinda scared of going up to the tree, because it could be trapped or something. I went up there since I have a way of things like that, but suddenly WHOOSH evil clawed undead thing from above! It nearly ate my face off (and I’m rather attached to my face. I make a living off it, o’course). It also summoned up a bunch of skelley-mans and tried to kill us while it hid in the fountain (I dunno how, but it kinda just… melted into the rock. Magic, I’m guessing).
We were fighting hard, and then some devil-guy appeared from the forest! Not the devil-guy from before, but a half… demon… person. Tieflings? Sounds like thiefling but with a hard ‘T’. Either way, I don’t like him or his name ‘Maelros’. That just sounds EVIL. Even brought a fiery panther with him (sorta ~ I guess it was trying to eat him, but still). Rhakesh said he wasn’t a bad guy, since he helped us kill (rekill?) the undead things, but I dunno. Shava said he also used some weird magic stuff, which is different from ‘normal’ magic stuff? Still, I’m keeping my eye on him. We already got enough evil people walking with us as it is, HADDIN.
So, we go into the shrine after Shava opened it up and there’s this BIG statue of Anyariel (I think – some elf woman with a big sword, which is like the legend she said earlier) and these two dead guys at the foot of it. There was also a pedestool thing with a bunch of glass around it, like someone smashed it to get whatever was in it. Shame, I wanted what was in it. We didn’t find much of anything, just a dead Shahalesti soldier and a dead elf priest guy. Probably the guy that wrote the book in the tower. I didn’t wanna leave empty-handed (so some guy managed to beat us here, there HAD to be something handy) so I thought the soldier’s stuff might be useful. When I picked up the helmet and was about to put it on, this angel-ghost-paladin-thing appeared and started shouting stuff, pretty much scaring everyone in the party (I ain’t afraid of no ghost, but an angel-ghost-paladin? ….maybe).
I wonder what ghosts like to eat? Do they even eat? Probably souls or something. I wonder how many souls I got? I bet a lot.
