Leaves on the Wind
Journal of Raniver
- As a true soldier, I was utterly humbled and honored to be picked for the search of our new homeland. My superiors belief in the prophecy of our untimely doom of Sylvian has led us to this new task. I do not question my commanders’ judgement and must believe this prophecy is true without question.
- After Thurindor’s attack on our party, thanks to Leena she could be a disruption to our expedition with her advarsaries; we hurriedly got our ship to the protest of Galandranion. There was a terrible storm on voyage, on the speculation that Thurindor had his spell casters cause this; but couldn’t help but to chuckle at Galandranion’s seasickness; even after 50 years on the sea before, he still doesn’t have the discipline to adapt to water travel, how feeble his body must be! that can be another hindrance to our quest.
- Our ship took a real beating but we landed in far-southern Katar without any injuries or serious illness. We spent several days scouting, primarily following a river that may lead to a settlement of humans. I still don’t see the dire need for human contacts now when our settlement is still roughly 1000 miles away. I don’t trust humans’ weaknesses and the less we talk to them the better. But Commander Bregdhor says it can be a necessity, and I don’t question his motives.
- Melldur and I were scouting & did finally come across a settlement. We eased upon it and noticed 4 human assassins preying upon this town and eventually a human boy playing a flute on the river’s rock. These single-minded men didn’t notice us. I shouldn’t expect much more from humans, on their blindness to us and to attack a defenseless boy, what possibly could they gain from this?. Melldur placed an arrow into 1 man and I jumped in front of the boy; daring them to attack. Another assassin pulled out his bow and after a long wait, Melldur placed another in him before he shot. I attacked the others, severely wounding 1 and taking him to camp with Melldur. To my disgust, Lathron felt the need to heal him 1st rather than to question. He died without getting information. We can’t let Lathron’s sympathies with heartless humans get in the way of our task, it was a wasted opportunity and cannot happen again!
