On Love and Fearlessness.

Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between you and i. Sometimes minds are close, emotions are shared and fears of others can be felt.

When one of us is fearless, he or she protects other one from fear just by being close, giving emotional security.

Thus, fearless being radiates aura of courage and love dispels fears.

Trial.

Magistrate (Peltarch Law Representative) Borodin contacted me recently.

Beating.

I saw wolf fighting man again. I admit, he has sense of humour...



It started fairly innocently, he was given a task to help to defeat mad dogs that attacked outpost he just visited. With haste.



He was not alone in the fight.



It was exhausting and draining fight, but he seemed to have ability to recover his energy quickly as he hit them with his fists of fury.



His flying kicks generally beat these fanatical monsters, but not without his blood and sweat.



Then he did something strange. He smacked at nearest pig's behind, with his staff...



Then at the snout...



... and somehow gained ability to fly. He scouted the battlefield, the battle was nearly over.


He was needed elsewhere.

Leaves.



I was sitting in Peltarch commons, with quiet Elf and flirty Half Orc bard nearby when magic happened.

We heard birdsong.

Then Leaves landed on sundial and clouded up, then shifted subtly.. I've cast detect magic cantrip and felt nature magic somehow..

"It's great sign", I had to say. "Nature magic, I hope it's Life. And Longevity."

Letters appeared spelled out in common tongue. They shifted slowly, and sloppily at first, growing more clear and rapid.

"I A M W E L L H E R E"

They shifted like bowl of water now, as if waiting.

I couldn't resist urge, so I reached for the Leaves with both open hands as if to gather them like dripping water, then I offered this experience to Godess of Arcane Power, to Godess of Fiery Love, and to Godess of Moon and Beauty.

Elf asked: "Who are You" ?

Swirling letters appeared again:

"J E R R I C K"

"I A M W E L L H E R E"

Half orc commented: "those swirling leaves are total mystery to me"

The leaves left Elf, and swirled about once more, to dance around me. then they pillared into the sky.

"Nice. I have loving attention. And everyone appreciates this. So do I." I had to say.

Then i got a sense of well being, like a warm breeze on a cool day. Somehow I collapsed lightly on grass, with arms spread. I smiled at the Leaves a little. I saw magic everywhere these days...

"I A M M O U N T A I N"

He must have been smoking something good... And it had the side effects. I didn't omit to mention this aloud.

Elf asked: "Is Jerrick dead?"

Leaves answered: "I L I V E"

Yes, he lived and is well here. and had power over leaves.

"A N D M O R E"

It felt too well to stand up. I felt the sense of a kind presence as heavy sigh ran through the commons, scattering leaves, blowing hair, but leaving Elf's cat unscathed. I felt magic everywhere, but it left me... Half orc said it would make a wonderful song. It was gone, Cut off very aburptly. Nature magic just moved on.

Jerrick, the druid was somewhere else, much better there it seemed.

I felt well, somehow, for i experienced kind presence. Somehow. Slightly magically, not sure how, Somehow. It was well even if he was gone. Somehow. Elf thought it was cryptic message but it was not, he was somewhere, he just moved on, but we could still experience his presence via nature magic.

Street Art of Sweeping Leaves left us. Artistically. But we felt the presence somehow. It was not so bad. Somehow. Half orc started to strum his yarting and compose song, then rushed away somewhere.

So Jerrick was not dead, wherever he was. He showed this to us. He was mountain. We saw the signs. Leaves told us this. Somehow.

Man Fighting Wolves.

My mind went to Astral Sphere again. I've noticed man who looked like a monk dressed in leather, fighting grey wolves. His fighting style was unique and impressive. I think i have karmic connection with this man.

When i told this to my dwarf friend, Gnarl, it seemed to him that i will "have travel in future".

Abuser's Name.

I learned calishite abuser of magic's name, as he made public speech in Peltarch. Kasim El Shah. He wasn't greeted warmly by public.

Firestaff.

Staff of Xavier mesmerizes me. Sometimes it seems to whisper strange words, other times it's arcane fire burns in my dreams.

"Ah, so the Firestaff has
  called yet another band
    together...."

Something whispers to me that it is mage attribute, augmenting access to Firestaff (military riddle system of command words). These are ancient power words used by old nation to command Power, Elements, Form and Class/Alignment (Role and Position) of beings under command of Firestaff.

Astral Space.

My mind travels in astral space. It happens too often, somehow i feel drawn to it. But I can use my abilities there to help others.

My imagination and emotions give me power in this world. Things I see are mostly about dragons, people's fears and ambitions. There are plenty of demons to defeat.

I have insight in our future and can sow seeds of it with wishes, mantras, affirmations, visualizations, spells, prayers and rituals.

This is not best time for meditation, but i can use all my knowledge gained via insight as result of meditation. It would be just too much to continue at this point with meditation.

((time passed since first version of this entry in Chea's Journal. she has higher experience level in game now.))

Abuser.

I have met Abuser, Calishite Noble.

I've noticed him abuse magic in Norwick, barbarian town to south of our beloved city of Peltarch, the Jewel of the Icelace. He started casting spells on innocents with little provocation, i tried to defend victims for which i was almost arrested by local law. I had to turn invisible and run.

Later when we have met in Peltarch, he was abusive (with words) toward me, and said "no" when told to not abuse magic. Perhaps he would not speak at all if he knew that i am part of Knights of the Cerulean Stars, city's military response to magical threats. Officially.

When told that "it's law" regarding "do not abuse", he said: "I'll do as I please, of course. I.. deal.. with the laws here. But that's all."

He refused to say his name when asked for it, but i got his description memorized and written. There will be official report and warning, for this irresponsible man means trouble.

Robe of Scintillating Colors.

The wearer can cause the Robe of Scintillating Colors to become a shifting pattern of incredible hues, color after color cascading from the upper part of the robe to the hem in sparkling rainbows of dazzling light. The colors daze those near wearer, conceal wearer, and illuminate the surroundings.

The first of such robes was said to have been made by a Halruaan Liira-worshipper named Persephenon. As unusual Halruaan, Persephenon showed talent for sorcery rather than wizardry. This social stigma, combined with his pursuits of the Joybringer's path and his flamboyant personality, put Persephenon at odds with his contemporaries.

Despite these obstacles, Persephenon was appointed captain of a skyship. He made his robe as a tribute to Liira, in order to paint rainbows across the sky as he flew.

This undignified behavior ultimately lost Persephenon his capitancy and later led to his exile from Halruaa. Welcomed in Luirien by the less-ridgid halfling culture, Persephenon enjoyed a happy life and copies of his robes have similarly enjoyed a favored place among the hin bards.
