Divination Deck.

Dear Journal,

She did examine her divination deck, also known as Tarot.

She found cards that are well understood and she will share.

She found most interresting and well understood:

1. 'enlightenment',
2. 'clock',
3. 'eye',
4. 'fairy',
5. 'well',
6. 'mage',
7. 'warrior'
8. 'night'
9. 'dojo'
10. 'dance'
11. 'rogue'
12. 'monk'
13. 'bard'
14. 'shaman'
15. 'crystal'
16. 'ward'
17. 'love'
18. 'friend'
19. 'treasure'
20. 'tower'
21. 'death'
22. 'war'
23. 'plague'
24. 'poison'
25. 'demon'
26. 'twist'
27. 'rider'
28. 'rebirth'
29. 'katharsis'
30. 'mind'
31. 'spirit'
32. 'celestial'
33. 'devil'
34. 'animal'
35. 'raven'
36. 'ally'
37. 'enemy'
38. 'aura'
39. 'art'
40. 'moon'
41. 'lady'
42. 'man'

She felt head spin, and after short pain her thrid eye center on forehead was filled with energy. She had visions before, at this center, but this time didn't.

She will learn from Proper Teachers, and fight for the Truth to share.

She will paint her own cards as well, perhaps discarding some. She still needs to learn before her 'truths' can be True.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, novice in Savras's Arts.

P.S. She reported her progress to Peltarch HQ, with proper warning.

P.S.S. She prefers to not divine for herself, but perhaps she will.

'No bloodthrist allowed here'.

Expect gnoll attack.


Dear Journal,

She participated in Peltarch's 'defense' against small-sized gnoll outrage.

Placed on battlements, she expected attack and prepared for preemptive strike with her team.

They went on, and 'cleaned' Nars Pass of parts of larger gnoll forces.

She almost died during succesful assassination attempt on one of gnoll younglings, who kept to retreat and bing reinforcements as they progress persistently. Formiddable gnome mage went on rescue and did help in time. She thanked him in a way later.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, cerulean knight 1st star.

P.S. One of us 'didn't feel particularly bloodthristy today' so neglected attack. In my case, no bloodhtrist allowed at all.

She's not slaver.

Chea & Yuki. photo CheaampYuki_zpsb4fb0f11.jpg

Chea & Yuki Kanazawa.



Dear Journal,

She was returning from Oscura when she got 'eyed' by Yuki Kanazawa, merchant from Kara-Tur.

She reacted with bow and servitude.

She was told to find out about 'spy', 'red headed boy' who asked questions nearby.... and she heard mention of slaves. He was dropped in docks of Peltarch.

She went to Peltarch by underground river, at cost of 15 coin, one of last she had. Boy was not found in docks, and Claire, 'Lucky Ferret' maid was bribed, for she won't go into 'Black Sails' territory (Peltarch, Oscura) without bribing them first. She was hinted to 'ask around in commons'.

Indeed in Peltarch Commons she found someone matching description watching over woman. She didn't ask a question, but instead tried to befriend him. More people appeared, including ex-senator Marthoussca Leaffall... who asked for news.

That's how she learned about slave ship and elves who escaped under protection of such 'boy'. She is not slaver, so she decided to infiltrate Oscuran slavers. She's only somewhat angry and feels forced to protect her unborn (yet) child.

She went to kobolds, to not hear too much (she was not hired for extra information, it's more than neccessary), killed few.... more in numbers than usual again.

Then she returned, clean at 'Dancing Mermaid', then embarked to Oscura. Her excuse was that she needed to check price of adjusting her Silver Stiletto at Dark Hammers. Having little coin she haggled a bit with boatman, then decided to go other route.

Invisible she had to reveal herself to protect traveller.... Hopefully she didnt cause more harm than help. Gnoll Witch Doctor resisted her spell then counterattacked with his, poisoning her body and mind. Her reply took him down, she tried asking if armed traveller is fine, indeed traveller was just fine. Then she recast Invisibility. She summoned Shelgarn's knife to aid traveller. One young gnoll sniffed and slowly went closer and close, while she was occupied with combat. She noticed and left... and more gnolls joined the fight, maybe attracted by her or Shelgarn's knife. Perhaps gnolls could sniff her blood, but they followed other woman so she slowly could leave, with body and mind poisoned.

She arrived, reported, got paid and hired to learn name and details and whom he serves, of this 'red haired dog' of a 'boy'.

She'll report this to Peltarch after shock is gone.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, double agent? .

P.S. Later she did adjust her Silver Stiletto, the part that protects hand. It's more aesthetically pleasing now, so it's better function as an witch's attribute.

Blackstaff.

Blackstaff.



Dear Journal,

She prepared for enchanting, her staff for combat, black and made well.

For to honor Khelben 'Blackstaff' Arunsun, Attentus' role model.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, arcane arts student.

Price of Coal.

Dear Journal,

Coal in narfell is scarce and expensive. Well made weapons even more.

Perhaps because of dangers associated with mining, or local economy is too strange for my sanity.

I've sold chest full of coal to Master Z's assistant, for 200 coin.

I'll share coin with poor, instead of giving them few lumps of coal.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, 'crafty trader'.

Never travel with unknown Half-Orcs (Anheim's Tale).

Half-Orc party. photo half-orc-party_zps196b9a37.png

Half-Orc party.



I've been searching for troubles lately, not so hard to find in these lands.

First kobold swamps, then boat to Norwick and straight to the Jiyyd battlefield, it's where unscrupulous types can be found often.

This time it was two half-orcs, but perhaps i've misjudged them.

I've decided to travel with them once they stated they wish to fight demons.

Trip was short, few demons defeated, but i took 'all the blows'.

Combat very quick and uneven, with two demon-spawns focusing on me.

Unable to deflect their swift and powerful energy-line cutting blows well, due to my lack of true skill in combat and improper weapon for the task, it was matter of seconds.

Half-orcs defeated demons somehow, one of them healing me while i drank quickly most of my potions (all i thought i had). I wasn't sure if i'll live for life's energy leaked faster than potions and spells could heal at times, as i lost the sight of combat due to speed and power of this weapon/energy demonic assault. In the end amount and strength of potions proved sufficient. Still, it was my life that was at risk for next to nothing. I left, drinking rest of potions just in case. Not a single vial remaining to save someone's life again.

Perhaps Chea is right, perhaps fighting demons this way is dangerous and pointless.

We've met (with half-orcs) once again by Shady Varr's Wagon where female half-orc said she can heal if i wish, instead. Still we didn't exchange names even.

Perhaps next time.

I won't go as far as to accuse them of a subtle murder intent to steal my weapons and goods, but for now i'll sleep at the temple of Kelemvor (god of Death) near Shady's Wagon. Until wounds are healed.

.... and think about her way of fighting such threats ....

-- Anheim.

Swamp's Twilight.

 photo nightstalking_zps1044dcf8.png

Evening Stalking with Nade.

'underwater love'

or

'kobold hiding underwater,
he was killed with spell later'.




 photo underwaterkobold_zps8a32c38a.png



Dear Journal,

She met a monk of Old Order who was trained a 'little of meditation and combat ways'. His master left him to pursue his life as he pleases. Vow he took was not by his Master.

She met interresting people in commons until, she decided to leave to stalk, for she missed her best company, Nade afterall.

Swamps can be alluring and romantic when there's Nade, little danger, and something to be won.

Overall good evening, she thinks.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, cerulean star 1st.

P.S. Fake love, or 'love' is most often a murder in my book. I don't endorse it in most of cases.

Rainy Autumn in Peltarch.

Rainy Autumn in Peltarch. photo peltarch_rainy_autumn_zps1ac7165b.png


Dear Journal,

Today she met 'once Senator', madam Marthoushca Leaffall who was reministcent of their past.

A beginning of the N'Jast War, Senator Marty was abducted, only to be returned years later after such, with lost memory and no diary.

Marty lost her position in a city, but still cares, even if prays to Tyr, god of Justice, ever so often.

Now however ex-senator had something different on mind, it's that glacier is advance, a sign of Auril's return.

Jerrick Rayfe, famous druid that she didn't have contact with for long (she's not her love, dear Journal, but she likes him) still controls nature and it's balance somehow.

Senator Marty suspects. That if 'Auril', godess of Winter, returns - servants will come with.

Perhaps warming after the N'Jast War will be temporary? Marty's words suggest that cold climate in Narfell will happen someday again, but we can prepare and delay.

It's well known that N'Jast War ended when adventuring team found something on Icelace's island, an apparatus that changed flow of energy of this land, ripped and changed reality, that caused terrain rifts emerge. To the point of even getting rid of the famous Sam's Hill, where half-orc paladin Samson S. defended for days against Red Dragon Rass that didn't come. But perhaps later did anyway, she is not sure anymore. Now its 'Sam's Hole' to most.

Seeing ongoing destruction, and having been blasted by Old Narfell artifact that caused demons to emerge, N'Jast Army retreated to their land. This is how she remembers these days anyway.

Leftover of such was warm climate, painful memories, feeling of freedom (more or less delusional), and homeless, poverty, starvation, disease.

Peltarch was rebuilt, removed cobble and grass sown, to get rid of a fungus coming from under cobble.

....

We'll still fight Auril servants if they arrive, she suspects.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, cerulean star 1st.

P.S. She has chest of coal she collected in small doses during swamp patrols somewhere. She thinks it's good idea to give such to homeless of Peltarch's Docks. Will do so at nearest opportunity, for winter is coming. Coal and wood is hard to get for poor and unarmed.

Nightstalk.

Dear Journal,

Nightstalk was celebrated.

After short talk with new priestess, 'Kuutar'. She put us in line, then each of us did pour wine on altar in an offering.

I've also offered my Amulet, Platinum and Holy, handcrafted by Val Kyrie. And a spellsong in a short rite with silver stiletto.

Then priestess summoned Celestial into this plane of existence, and we asked her questions in turns. People asked about love, visiting Selune, finding Mentor, and such, and i've asked: 'how to help?'. Answer to my question was: 'Seek those in need'. Celestial left.

Then wine on altar started to glow, turn into flames, grow thick and moved around us. A moonfire. It changed some of my weak potions to 'Potions of Moon-Healing', truly blessed by Moonmaiden, Silver Lady. I'll give them to those in need.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, selunite among other roles.

Rumours reached me that Selune's Holy Day (Night Stalk) will perhaps be celebrated at Temple Lighthouse in Peltarch, soon.

I've left Oscura for now and started preparations.

Dear Journal,

She got her Silver Stiletto, well made and fine...

She mimicked cutting her wrist, for a joke, well above hand.

She will be fine nevertheless, somehow, even without so much coin, for she's lighter that way.

She can still eat, she can afford that much. If neccessary she will sell or hunt for food on her own, somehow.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, Literate.

'Splurge'.

Dear Journal,

She met nice person, mister crafter, master Z.

She ordered fine and well mastered silver dagger knife, a true stiletto.

She had to sell all her gems and scrolls and take all money from bank.

But she did it, she is fine.

It will be enchanted and fine.

For speech is more than words.

How to write a letter.

Dear Journal,

To write a letter finely, she should prepare.

Find a proper place, lighted and nice and think.

She should use proper tools such as letter opener dagger knife, perfumed scent and finest paper and ink, wax and writing utensils.

She should caligraph her letters very well, and write considerate words.

She should fold paper into envelope using letter opener and wax.

She should sign her letter with signet seal.

She should care and love, for everything counts.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, literate.

She will Dance with Dagger Knife.

Dear Journal,

She will write about her in thrid person from now on.

That's the best way to dance and live or die.

Her knife is words, enchanted and fine.... they are built on Compassion so they are soft and sharp.

P.S. She will use tat knife to fight for Enlightened Love.

it has uses in Diplomacy.

Dignity regained, merci. (Whatson's Fiddle).

Dear Fiddlebag,

I've regained dignity somehow.

Went to goblin woods, found dead wolves, and lost equipment.

Kind unseen presence helped me nuomenally, somehow.

I'll keep tattered tunic (now Beggar's Rags) for 'sentimental value' anyway.

-- Yours, Whatson Fiddle, 'barbarian town dignitary'.

Dear Fiddlebag, i'll start anew... (Whatson's Fiddle).

Dear Fiddlebag,

I was inspired by new strategy that i've gained via insight somehow.

Too many opponents hide behind stronger, then run away. To get us into ambush or call support. They have to be reduced.

I've tested this on goblins with success. I will practice this, but now i need to heal my wounds.

Difference between Philosophy and Magic.

Dear Journal,

I was thinking.

The difference between Philosophy and Magic is such:

- Philosophy is about Thinking (word means 'Love of Wisdom'),
- Magic is about doing things somehow.

I prefer to be Philosopher, but sometimes i have to cast Spells.

I've entered Oscura, for Wethrillina Aeliath... Witch who was Attentus's Lover.

I do not know much of this place, except that it's fond of Slavery, Magics, Tortures, and it's Nobility.

I know i have no rights there, but perhaps affections of there Factions, due to my Teacher Attentus (even if i am liberated sometimes) and my Arcane Skill and Lore.

We'll see if i live.

Whatson's 'little' shopping list.



Dear Fiddlebag,

i've gone again fighting goblins and wolves in howling woods, nothing special... i've retreated with light spell reserve and few light wounds (too many of such can kill..).

Then i decided to prepare for more, for i've suffered from lack of crossbow bolts already (in my bolt belt for crossbow, even if some disagree..).

Some walking around the Town of Norwick, buying, selling and buying....

Summary:

1. lot of crossbow bolts,
2. 2 x oil flask (flammable),
3. wooden bowl,
4. wooden cup,
5. dwarven chuf (some some, old cheese),
6. dwarven ale,
7. tinderbox,
8. fine tea,
9. stag helmet.

i need to buy gnomish silverware from hin valley (or more properly 'Silver Valley'), but for now i eat like barbarian with dagger knife only (i need to earn that gold first, somehow).

-- Yours, Whatson Fiddle, No one.

Spellweaver Keep (Anheim's Tale).

I've applied to spellweaver keep a while ago, now i met it's leader, mage Maria.

We've discussed basics of cooperation, and i'll stay to protect, learn and represent interrest of less magically inclined people within the 'Keep'.

I was accepted for probatory duty period, during which i have to escort mages from the Norwick Gate to Maria's Tower and back. They do not need to waste spells on lesser enemies this way (goblins and undead are common on this route).

Is this war against Tyranny? i shall see.. For now i've accepted.

Escort. photo escort_zpseaeab276.png

Escort.


On way there i wasn't in best of my shape, but we've arrived without wasting single spell.

i was on Zen Pilgrimage to the temple of God of War,

now i fight for Peace, and Freedom,

but not at the cost of Enlightened Love,

i'll fight and kill Tyrants if neccesary,

for this is my way.

..ilcmeviran.

this sounded like name.

-- Anheim.

Fishing pond and Demigodess (Anheim's Tale).

Group of four of us (i prefer to not disclose names yet) went to find proper spot for making fishing pond for Peltarch Citizens.

It's hard to find paid work in Narfell, except for killing humanoids (at least for adventurers), so i decided to let people live on fishing and protect the pond with all my ability. This way they will have food to eat at least, or can sell.

On the way we saw some kind of miracle. Woman of chaotic demeanor and great arcane power appeared to us, and toyed for a longer while. I won't mention everything in this journal, but sometimes my stupidity amazes me...


Place for fishing pond. photo place_for_pond_zpsb5afa43e.png

Suitable spot for fishing pond.



Anyway, after she was done (guard told her to not scare citizens with her powers) we went on. Found proper spot, now more legal actions are needed to secure it and then widening stream can begin.

It's not too far from city walls, but giants, orcs and wild cats still pose a threat.

I've decided to guard the place and those who fish there with my life. It'll be holy place.

-- Anheim.

Place for unarmed combat practice (Anheim's Tale).

Anheim meditating in 'Ashald Park' in Peltarch.


i've found good place for practice for now.. Peltarch's 'Ashald Park', probably named after Rath Ashald, former Peltarch Senate. He has descendant, Rath Ashald-Jorinsen now.

Perhaps i won't be thrown out if i help (i'll start with sweeping leaves).

i've cast 'light' cantrip and meditated.

Will be continuing there with my unarmed combat ways.

(...)

Later i did some overall body stretching, then short shadow fighting practice (with imagined opponent) with my own shadow (shadow is inner dragon, and dragon is symbol of fear). It is said that greatest victory is against one's self.

-- Anheim.

P.S. i am curious about 'Peltarch Fighter Academy'.

Dear Fiddlebag,

I went to Howling Woods again, and fell into 'ambush'.

Deadly one if they were in shape, two wolves, three goblins (two spellyappers and one shinbiter). I could outrun them even in my scale armor, so they were separated and dead, at least partly.

-- Yours, Whatson, goblin & wolf slayer.

Anheim's meditation and prayer to Tempus for skill to fight Tyranny.


i've meditated and prayed to Tempus again, this time perhaps more wisely.

'Tempus, grant me skill to fight Tyranny, religious, magical or martial, or any other'.

--

i'll practice unarmed combat later.

i won't fight or kill unless neccessary.

-- Anheim.

Peace & Freedom fighting (Anheim's Tale).

i met interresting man, he was confused but trying to help. clearly he had expectations.

so i told him that he can call on favor, if he fights for peace.

we agreed that he can fight with words.

(...)

later i've confronted someone who found crusade dull, for he preferred slaughter.

he hid his face under helmet.

i could challenge him to unarmed fight, without helmet, but not on his terms (no extra points for suffering).

he wished to keep my teeth, if he pulls them out.

i'll find a way perhaps to uncover his identity, aside from his black red armor and voice i heard.

-- Anheim.

What is 'Aura'.

Dear Journal,

What is 'Aura'?

i think it's effect of 'Powerfield' on it's surroundings.

Surroundings are part of the 'Aura' and 'Aura' is part of the 'surroundings' and part of 'Powerfield'.

we shall see.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, liberated Witch.

Dear Journal,

-- Yours, Chea Allin, sleepyhead.

P.S. fireplace was nearby, it was warm.

Preparing for meditation.

Preparing for Meditation.


Dear Journal,

Perhaps i'll visit monastery for some time to practice meditation.

Not Monk's way, but Yogi's.. for i do not wish to resign from Love and Sex.

-- Yours, Chea Allin.

Return.

Return (in the Temple of Triad of Peltarch).


Dear Journal,

i've returned to the land of living in shorter time than expected.

Gnarl and Romulus found my body and possession and brought back at the Temple of Triad in Peltarch.

i'll gather myself soon, for i've lost some memories, abilities and experiences... and 1000 gold pieces (cost of return in the temple).

i'll meditate.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, Witch.

Fugue Plane.

Fugue Plane (after death).


I've stupidly went on patrol to the sewers alone. Invisibility spell failed unexpectedly, and was surrounded by cultists and their grey goo. Paralyzed and dead, ended up here in fugue plane... i understood after a while of a hazy dream.

I do not know when i leave this place and into which direction (either back on Toril, or to Realms Beyond).

-- Chea Allin, Dead Witch.

Beyond Energy Barrier (Anheim's Tale).

i've dared to venture past energy barrier and face new challenges.

Undead were easy. Zombies very tough, so two handed sword was weapon for them. Against skeleton, holy water sprinkler did it's due.

Then scavenger infested battlefield... Too easy opponents for skilled fighter, even if they sneak and backstab. They tried to parry, but strong attack is also a skill. I know few acrobatic tumble maneuvers so i could disengage with ease, thus i had maneuverability advantage.

Maneuverability, external weapons, unarmed martial arts, and more. Thus carrion crawlers and carrion swarms were also very easy to get rid of.

I'll work on parrying, it's not perfect but still can be useful.

Demon spawn in under tunnels almost killed me, when two of them cut my way out, and thrid blocked way in. I've escaped somehow. I had 'the' discipline to resist their energy point attacks aimed to make my arms weaker. Perhaps Chea is winning. I'll see if she is well...

With proper team we could even kill few or more, i think.

Way back was easy, even if i was injured.

(later)

i've met chea near Shady Varr's merchant wagon, she is well.

She bought 'Necklace of Fireballs' in meantime.

Wait.

Chea waiting for orders.


Dear Journal,

I am waiting for something to do again, and for salary.

Neither orders nor payment arrive, i have just 1st star title and some legal rights and responsibilities.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, Cerulean Star 1st.

Four Winds Monastery & Hin Fist Adepts (Anheim's Tale).

Hin Fist Adepts & Temple of Hope in Silver Valley.


i've visited 'Silver Valley' and met hin fist monks (right sized folk), who were very quiet.

'Temple of Hope' was open but Four Winds Monastery (part of the 'Temple of Hope') closed.

'Emerald Circle' (Arcane group, also part of 'Temple of Hope') was closed too.

Cirden Calling Snake Spirit.

Astral War (Anheim's Tale).

I've had lucid dream, and insight..

It seems i'll have to participate in Astral War, which is no less dangerous than real one.

It seems that Lucid Dreaming is key to Astral Travels.

I'll try to resist, for i do not wish to travel Astrally. Unless i have to.

Artistic Properties.

Dear Journal,

A while ago i've acquired few Artistic valuables.

Now i took Dragon Figurine from my Backpack, and Fine Paints from one of my boxes in the Cerulean HQ chests, to admire.

Perhaps something will come from it, for i have ideas.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, admirer of Art.


Fine Paints. photo finepaints_zpsb8afb399.jpg

Fine Paints (with brushes, for speech is more than words. You can tell something using Art, for example: Image, as well).

Swamp woes.

Swamp Woes. photo swamps_water_zpsfd04d2aa.jpg

Chea knee-deep in swamp water.


Dear Journal,

Another swamp trip in Tiamat's service.

Again armour wet, i had to dry it by fireplace at the 'Dancing Mermaid'.

My friend from Peltarch Defenders, Adelie De'Lanieth thinks that swamps are romantic, and perhaps they are.

I can tatter myself a little when it protects the Child.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, tattered servant to Tiamat.

P.S. Next time i should wear Tiamat's Holy Symbol on neck if neccessary.
