From a loosely tied sheaf of papers titled 'Vlolkir'

I have trained and I am strong. I have skill and am growing in my ability to resist the evil that horoi work against us. But I am, again, an initiate. I have been training when I hear Jael, friend beast master wishes to go into the mountains. I seek him in tavern, and pledge my mace for his journey. He says we go to the high mountains, we go to look for gryffons. Fine. The others are not accustomed to mountains, I bring Hurlg. None can be sick from aught else when one is sick from Hurlg.

Frind Dubhan, Mightiest of Wizards and a magister of great mystical knowledge, Carver the fine pathfinder and surprisingly cunning warrior, Jael who has the furred things with him, and a new one, one who is called Zivilyn and commands the spirits of the beasts. We go, and we go into the mountains. The high peaks, where air is thin, even my lungs labor to pull the clean in, the others fight hard. We rest much. I pass out Hurlg.

As we climb one rocky point, there is a gap. Friend Dubhan is flying, and little need has he for a path, but I leap and glide and carry a rope over. The others cross. Jael tries to cross, carries his furred ones, lizards below wish to eat him. He does not allow lizards below to eat him. Or his furred ones. But once we are on top, we hear heavy footfalls, and I leap to the fore. We see Cave Brothers, and furred ones they have made their own. We rush up the narrow path to meet them. Jael and his strike hard, and knock our foes down, I run up the slope and leap behind striking hard. Spell magic is used, stones are slung, I am surrounded but jump quickly to either side. This armor which the threads of my life are tied to is mighty and the spirit of storm lives within it, granting me speed.

As our foes flee or fall Carver hears a thing from up the peak. He says he hears screaming. He says he hears battle. We climb the slope, and we hear the chants of our magicians in our ears as they place upon us the blessings of Spell Magic. We crest the hill and it is the Nightmare. It is the Nightmare from down in the deeps of Bamor. There is a thing, like a large cat, and it has slain many, many, T'Skrang. I chant the chant of glory and death and give challenge to this thing. It leaps behind me, and strikes at friend Dubhan. Once on the ground it lays about, striking with awful claws and strange blades from under its hide. I am tripped and find myself on my back. With the Song Of The Dooms on my lips, I strike from the ground with mace and sword. The power of the Shaman grips my bones, and my sword sings home. The beast is felled and T'skrang are made to stand. We save some more of theirs. They say we have been predicted, we have been determined. They ask us to their city, and as they are weak and I have the head of the fallen. We go.

The cliffs are tall and shear. There is beauty beyond what most see here. Great cliffside carved towns show in the gorge. A troll, and many other trolls would live here. We are greeted and given thanks by the Chivellehelleh. We hear she is a great T'Skrang, and I leave the head of the awful thing for her. Some are found who will fight against the Horoi and I am happy. They make a wine of grasses here and it is almost as good as Hurlg and I am happy. The others find me after a few days, and say we will go to throal. We are gone on a boat that goes on the water, and things are good as the mountains pass.

As much as I have seen, little there is which calls as greatly as the stairs of Bamor.
