1. 'enlightenment',
2. 'clock',
3. 'eye',
4. 'fairy',
5. 'well',
6. 'mage',
7. 'warrior'
8. 'night'
9. 'dojo'
10. 'dance'
11. 'rogue'

13. 'bard'
14. 'shaman'
15. 'crystal'
16. 'ward'
17. 'love'
18. 'friend'

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.

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'


'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.

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.

P.S. This time she wrote about herself in first person, and it stays like that.

Chea outside Temple Lighthouse.

Dear Journal,

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.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, attendant and scribe at Temple Lighthouse.

P.S. Dialogue between religions is often walking from Temple to Temple and doing various tasks.

P.S.S. This time she wrote about herself in first person, and it stays like that.

Magical Song to Selune, Moon Godess.

Dear Journal,

I have a spellsong, that i'll record here.

It's little misspelled, but it works fine.

'On sky flashed silver knife, it's moon fully guard'.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, Conspirant with Liira and Mystra to Selune (Ars Magica, or 'The Art of Magic' under Moon).

P.S. This time she wrote about herself in first person, and it stays like that.

Chea fighting snakes on her way to Kuo-Toa cave, for coin.

Shelgarn's knife did most of the work.

Dear Journal,

I went on a trip for coin to cave next to Oscura.

It was short for spoils weight a lot, and i could not carry it anymore.

So i pulled it back somehow.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, coin worker.

P.S. This time she wrote about herself in first person, and it stays like that.
