Recluse of a Scribe.



Blue Recluse, an Inn at Mages' Quarter.



In my Dream, Dear Journal,

i've stayed at inn, 'The Blue Recluse'.

then i've searched for Scribes' Shop.

it's not a time for me to practice inscriptions yet, to that level, however.


-- Yours, Chea Allin, Lucid Dream Adventuress & Scribe.


P.S. i also know how to find herbs, for inks & more.

Spiral Down.



Mages' Quarter, Spiral Down.



In my Dream, Dear Journal,

i've walked 'The Spiral Down',

i've seen a Grif & a 'Tome of Clear Mind'.

not all is as it seems.

A Dream.



Evanesce a Spell.



Dear Journal,

i've dreamed, with a Lucid Dream.

in this dream i did cast interresting a Spell, 'Evanesce'.

it's similar to 'Ghostly Visage' in Toril.

i like.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, a Lucid Dreamer Adventuress.




a Travel, without Grif.

Kobolds of the Cave.



Chea Allin,
Embarking on a Kobold Cave patrol.



Dear Journal,

i went to Kobold Cave again with my panther familiar,

fought Kobold Silencer in melee with Staff, as Nade snuck on him & killed.

followed deeper into the cave, killed two Kobold Adepts with spells, as Nade was wounded by more - so i've did unsummon her with a dismissive gesture.

she returned to her home plane to recover from wounds hastily.

after impulse to run that i could not resist despite calm mind, i've returned to the Cave to recover killed Kobolds' equipment.

invisible, i've used 'Shelgarn's Persistent Blade' to distract those near dead Kobold Adepts' remains, as i snuck & stole their equipment for sale.

it is said that Kobolds follow Dragons & form Dragon Cults, as is said that Sorcerers have Blood of the Dragons.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, Adventuress.


P.S. Known problem of Adventurers is turning into metaphorical monsters, as they gain in power. i think that power should not be misused or such corruption hastens inside a person & leads to terrible deeds & sorrow of many as hero turns into a villain.

P.S.S. People as they age should be more responsible, but i still found no True Love so i have to fight still - both internally against corruption & externally against monsters. another question is whether one can stop fighting after finding her True Love.

Black Book of Shadows.



Chea Allin invoking power of Black Book of Shadows.


Dear Journal,

i've invoked power of Black Book of Shadows in Peltarch Commons.

perhaps it will come.

i'll use it to protect childrens' lives.

for Enlightened Love & Witch.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, a Witch & Seeker of Enlightened Energies.

Origami.

Dear Journal,

Does the 'Art of Paper Folding', 'Origami', has a sway on Reality?

i think yes.

This takes time, but results can be exceptional to how people move when Artist does this properly enough.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, an Artist.

P.S. i like folding envelopes with my silver stiletto, as i write letters.

Equipment (Anheim's Tale).

Recently a thought haunts me, urging to sell equipment that i need, too cheaply - suspecting magical attack.

Should talk with Chea, but do not want to bother her with that.

-- Anheim.

Spell Energy.

Dear Journal,

Sorcerers in this land go through many initiations & acquire access to new Spell Circles as they progress with experience.

After first initiation they can cast few of 1st circle spells & cantrips, few times a day.

After next initiations - more & more.

Details of how many spells of certain type can be formed a day depends on innate talent & charisma, on metamagics, on magic items used & on initiation level of a caster.

There are cases when spells go awry or fail to be cast succesfully. This is caused by wild magic & null magic zones, equipment.

Spells can be dispelled or countered as well.

There's much more to tell but it's advanced lesson.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, a sorcerer mage witch.

Spelless.

Dear Journal,

drained of energy, yet something pushed me to wade in swamps for too long.

i've faced 'Spelless Death' in kobolds' swamps, nearly.

i suspect the danger of Artful Nature.

i didn't drown.

still had energy to return to 'Mermaid' where it's safe to meditate for spells.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, drained & manipulated Adventuress.

P.S. On the way back i've looked at 'Nars Rider Stables'.

P.S.S. i didn't take Nade on that trip this time.

Meditation on Spells.

Dear Journal,

it occured to me as i walked through kobolds, paralyzing them with a 'Hold Person' spell, without killing.



Kobolds Held.



i didn't meditate on Enlightened Love yet.

i meditated only on Spells.

what's the point?

meditation puts someone into a Trance, i think.

Trance is mind's state of focus on a certain cause, where anything that hinders is neglected no matter the cost.

certainly, i should change.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, Adventuress.

Melee Combat practice.



Melee Form, part 1st.


Dear Journal,

i've gone too far with magic it seems.

i needed physical exercises to relax, staff combat against kobolds was just fine.

i've practiced standard forms.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, Adventuress.

Enchantment Process.

Dear Journal,

i admit, i didn't tell.

Item Enchantment process is not easy or quick a matter.

Materials & ingredients of highest quality must be gathered, proper place found.

Energy has to be invested, proper spells, mantras, offerings & rituals done.

Components & their energies must be purified & joined properly.

There are additional gold costs, memories forgotten & life's energy lost.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, former student of Attentus, Enchanter Mage.

Witch of the Swamps, Chea Allin.



Chea's turf, kobolds' swamp area.



Dear Journal,

it seems that kobold swamps near Peltarch are important part of my world, my turf.

perhaps i'll build a hut there.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, a swamp Witch.

Endurance & Encumberance.



Chea on her way.


Dear Journal,

i admit, i've been patrolling kobold swamps & cave with Nade for a while without writing.

not always it's profitable.

this time i've found few scrolls, including fairly expensive 'Restoration' which i sold to Hemrod, and an 'Endurance' spell scroll.

'Endurance' is a death trap as told by Attentus, my former Master.

as Encumberance is.

i didn't sell 'Endurance' scroll anyway.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, an Adventuress, a full-fledged Mage.

Travel between worlds.

Dear Journal,

i think, i understand.

i think that world is ideas in our mind, that we explore.

once we know certain ideas we can go see them in external world, or make them part of physical reality for example.

where mind goes, body follows.

travel between worlds can happen using proper mantras, as they change mind's state - and can be used less or more skilfully.

i think that perfection comes from experience, trying & observation - that's why i practice mind's quiet, observation & mantras.

i think that before visiting lower words it's wise to go to world of animals for wisdom, after short visit to hell for fearlessness.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, traveller between worlds.

Coin for Athamé of Light.



Fight.


Dear Journal,

Patrolling Kobold Swamps again.

Someday will have that coin for Athamé of Light.

If not in this life then in some next.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, Adventuress.

P.S. Trying to remember to properly remove spell effects & fix my outfit with cantrip spells before venturing into the town. Magic has to be gentle.




Return to Peltarch.

Friday, 7 November 2014

Athamé of Light.

Dear Journal,

i should enchant new item, for i had insights.

'Athamé of Light', out of my Masterwork Silver Stiletto, purifying energies in process.

it should not be used to draw blood ever, only to direct Magical Energies to help us reach Enlightenment.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, a Witch & Seeker of Enlightened Energies.

After Inn (Whatson's Fiddle).



Injured.


Dear Journal,

After long time i've decided to fight goblins again, for my belly is too fat.

I was wounded by wolves, but killed them with a crossbow an' ax.

Got healed by a woman near Norwick's South Gate in name of Shaundakul, her god.

Decided to be Bard to repay her with a song someday if i can.

After talk, went to inn to rest again.

Shape is regained slowly, they say.

Peltarch's Tournament Grounds.



Kobolds' junk Sale.


Dear Journal,

with Nade we went to kobolds' swamps & cave again.

we've defeated many weaker & few of more dangerous kobolds.

Nade went away as usual, and i've sold the spoils.

at Mermaid i couldn't meditate so well, something distracted me.

went to Peltarch's Tournament Grounds for a walk.

remembered times when i've participated both as spectator & contestant.

then back to inn, perhaps will be able to meditate & rest later.

-- Yours, Chea Allin - Adventuress, Mage & Seeker of Enlightened Energies.

Raven that is following me (Anheim's Tale).

i've dared to go to 'Kobold Swamps' few times, to earn coin for an inn.

noticed a shadow cast over me, as a Raven flew above.

today it came closer, looking at me as if had chosen me for something.

understood finally one of Chea's lessons & crafted a bond, making her my familiar.

name have to choose yet.

-- Anheim, a Warrior-Mage.

P.S. i've decided that Raven's name will be 'Shadow'.

P.S.S. Ravens are Symbols of Death, Dragon is symbol of Fear. Shadow is Inner Dragon.

P.S.S.S. Perhaps we'll help each other to tame our Demons & Fears somehow. This requires Respect.

P.S.S.S.S. Demons are Crimes, Corruption & Darkness.

Dancing with Swamp Wisp.



Dancing with a Wisp - in Dark Swamps.


Dear Journal,

i wished to examine a creature known as 'Swamp Wisp' closely.

went invisible past a 'Kobold Swamp', into outskirts of lizardmen territory.

found a Wisp using my Clairvoyant Powers.

i walked closer & closer, then wisp sensed me despite invisibility & disappeared.

ran back to Peltarch, avoiding the swamps' creatures.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, an adventuress.

Stage Magicks - preparations.



Preparation for Performance.


Dear Journal,

Perhaps someday i'll perform a Stage Magicks show in Mermaid.

i've dressed properly & prepared mentally for a while.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, adventuress.

Alvaniel's Wrath.

Dear Journal,

Alvaniel that i've met before is not someone i can help it seems.

she is kind to those who she likes, but wrathful to the rest.

i won't lighten her wrath nor enhance it in any way for it is not my way to support that.

i think best i can do is to stay away from her.

she didn't want to take exercise from me that would make her calmer.

i'll have to be wary of Bael'Enver as well, probably.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, adventuress.

P.S. thanks to her & Bael'Enver i understood at least word 'to fathom' more or less. 'to fathom' means to understand, in her more or less holy language.

Bark Skin.

Dear Journal,

few of my potions is that of the 'Barkskin' kind.

they smell dark like trees after rain, which reminds me of disturbing emotions.

it turns adventurer's skin into a semblance of trees' bark to protect from physical blows.

this effect stacks with protection from 'Mage Armour' spell & similar.

but i am so weak in melee combat that it rarely would make a change.

best i can do is to give it to someone who can protect me & others.

or use in Enchantment process.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, adventuress.

Kobold runs & a wait.



a Wait at Mermaid.


Dear Journal,

been once or twice more in Kobold Cave for gold. i can't remember exactly how many times.

it's very risky, but staying behind the competition too far is risky as well.

i've stored gold coin at Peltarch Bank, for it's not the Way to not help them.

now i rest & wait at Mermaid, for outside of City Hall is so intimidating with all these military men & women being so numerous & strong.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, adventuress.

---
* Due to rules of Narfell, can't do roleplaying between my characters - that's why i omit meetings between Chea & Anheim even if they are at the same Inn at the same time.

Election.



Election, part 1st.


Dear Journal,

i've witnessed switch to Monarchy, with King George I elected as Ruler of Peltarch.

as i understood, Cerulean Knights are no more - but perhaps i am wrong.

i've bowed a little before Crown, but will stay away from mundane politics as usual - as far as possible.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, a Selúnite Witch.

Moon Mother's Milk.

Dear Journal,

i've looked at my potions in arcane laboratory, analyzing them.

one of vials was suprisingly a potion called 'Moon Mother's Milk'.

it is uncontaminated and can be used on important occasions of Selúne.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, a Laboratory Mage.

Sacred Pillar Adventure.



Gathering of Adventurers.


Dear Journal,

i've travelled to Ogre's Cave past Gnoll Woods to see Sacred Pillar with more or less desirable company.

adventure was a success, even if they didn't give me escort or time to meditate for spells when i lacked, more than twice.

one time i was poisoned and barely walked too, they didn't care - perhaps because i had an 'Improved Invisibility' spell.

i had to find them after my rest for they were so hurried.

one of them didn't want my spells, even if these could save his life.

rewards were unusually fine, but i should cease to travel in that company.

-- Yours, Chea Allin, Adventuress.

Kobold Warrens.

Kobold Warrens.


Dear Journal,

went on short trip to Kobold Cave in Swamps near Peltarch.

killed few adepts & fanatics with Nade's help, then retreated.

rules of magic seemed to change against me again, 'Clairaudience / Clairvoyance' spell seems to last shorter than before - so there's the danger from 'Kobold Silencers' who attempt to sneak & kill with the single blow or few of these.

other notable danger is from 'Kobold Adepts', who can 'Hold' a person with spell to be decimated by other kobolds, for example: 'Silencers'. it's very dangerous to walk in this cave alone, slightly safer with Nade.

-- Yours, Chea Allin.

Dear Journal,

i've participated in yet another kobold patrol, with Nade, my panther familiar.

P.S. Thankfully it's not so easy to damage enchanted outfit, and 'prestidigitation' cantrip spell can be used to clean the outfit easily.
