New town New PeopleKeiji and I made it to a small quiet town called Newfort. This town makes me think of the small village I was to help. I feel uneasy here and wish to move on. However that is not the way of Torm. He would never back down if he was faced with an army greater in number than his own! He would stand and fight! I will help these people and aid them to make their lives better! Keiji says he wants to show people the way of love, sounds like a Slune cleric in a way. I wonder how he plans on showing these ex-warriors and mercenaries how to love? This should be entertaining at least. Torm lend me your Strength.
We came upon a billboard with a notice for work. We have been running low on funds; even though Keiji insists that we will get by on the power of “love” alone. I on the other hand would like a dry bed for once or a somewhat hot meal. I cannot help others if I myself catch death. So we agreed to help this Elia of the Mask with her task. When we went to the house we were to meet this person and her benefactor. We were met by a small group of odd people. First there wasElia of the Mask. She is a fine young elf. I take it she will be the head of this job. However I question her judgment as she has brought a child into this! The child calls herself Serenity Tamaraith; she can’t be more than 14 winters if that! She is full of wanderlust that I fear will get her into some terrible trouble one day soon. She however states she is part of the Lady’s College of Mages. I wonder how she ever got permission to leave! The child has with her a strange being that she calls Fretter (I was told by it that his name is Bale.) I am not sure of that creature he is neither Pixie nor full Imp. However I have no ability to judge with the amount of blood on my hands. This brings us to the most despicable member. Elia actually had the mind to hire a demon kin! A damned Tiefling! However he has antlers were his horns should be, but that does not matter he is still a product of an evil deity and reeks of foulness. I can’t stand to be near that creature of hell! If he makes one wrong move I will smite him in Torms good name! I know I may not be better than he in the way I ended those lives of the town, however I can achieve atonement for I am not a product of evil! However he has managed to befriend a goodly creature a Pixie. Her name is Demi; she is sweet if not short on the attention span. She is most pretty and flies wonderfully. She talks incredibly fast and never stops moving.
We all went to talk to Mr.Stonebrach, the patron for the job we are to-do. I fallowed Keiji and the others to the house, and listened intently on our mission. Serenity wouldn’t stop talking long enough for Mr.Stonebrace to say very much, and Belial (the despicable demon kin) kept thinking himself the leader! Just to show you demons always think they are in charge! Elia just let you have the damned map because you’re a supposable ranger so you know the land! Sorry I can’t help myself tieflings just rub me the wrong way! Mr.Stonebrace asked us to help clear out a mine he had bought a bit ago, and to find his missing crew. That’s when I found out why Torm led me to this place, to help those poor people in the mine! They must be sick, starving, or worse! Yes I will help them and in such save myself!
As I was lost in my stewing thought I noticed that everyone had moved into a smaller room with a large object in it. Mr.Stonebrace humored the child from the College and asked for her help with a word puzzle. She even figured it out! However she has much to learn about magic. She just yells out the power words to the puzzle without thinking of what could happen. The lid came flying off that box and this huge man in armor came out of it! He and the young one talked about the ancient Netherese for a short bit. He seemed a bit upset that he was no longer in the time of the great Nethril, I felt almost sorry for him. He then took leave as he walked outside into the town.
We all went to the tavern after that to get a good night’s rest before going to the mine. I did notice that Serenity choose to eat her meal in the room, I decided to fallow to keep watch of the girl and took my meal upstairs as well. However Serenity ate food she had packed in her own bag and not the great warm stew that the inn had made. She has a lot to learn of traveling if she will not eat from the inn. You cannot always bring enough food to feed thy self in one’s own bag. She and Elia decided to put a magic alarm on the door. I agreed since there was an infernal creature staying in the room next to use and I will not let him defile the young one! I just hope my own taint will not harm this child. She reminds me so of my pupil.
Keiji and Belial along with the Pixie stayed at the bar and drank a lot. There went any profit to live on for the next fort night. Keiji can, I found out, drink a lot of ale. That ends today, we will see how the next day fairs.
