Field Notes of A'horangi Ha'hana Syrtis, Vol. 1

Post by bronzemountain » Fri Jul 03, 2020 11:55 pm

Entry 7.

Thorkell the Weaponsmith wishes to Quest for Upandal. A vision from an Oracle (needs further investigating) points him to Clear Creek Crossing.

Work progressing well at Clear Creek Crossing. Buildings now have 2nd levels. Stairs are a sure sign of the progress of civilization. There are signs of tension, however. Guards who normally just lounge around, look bored, actually stop us at the gate. Most unusual. Clear indication that some danger or tragedy has befallen them.

Preliminary investigation indicates that the camp foreman now obsessed with some tower. Interesting. Or'zet word for Upandal is Jrikjrikjrik. Word for tower is Jrikjrik. Linguistic connection. Also metaphysical connection?

Daleren, Dwarf Foreman, clearly seized by visions. Perhaps mad. Thorkell begins to use the magic of his Discipline. Vigorous reaction. Seizes Thorkell. Believes him to be salvation. Mentions someone in need of rescue.

Location is on far side of Throal mountains. Great distance to cover. En route, we are ambushed by well armored Adepts. They lie. Tell us site is Horror tainted. They say that they are here to help.

Clearly nonsense. We thank them them, then move around. Of course, ambush. Attackers are deadly. Arrow in back slays Torgun. These are deadly cowards indeed. We fight. Violence is regrettable but necessary. Elisen is horrifically wounded, Vralino is hurt. I am winded, bruised. Thorkell comes out well.

We rest, most of us recover. Elisen remains badly hurt. We press on, following the example of Rashomon. We endure. In enduring, we grow stronger.

We continue on. Tower looms on horizon. Improbably tall. Difficult to focus on construction so large. Impressive. Ominous.
Attackers wear iron sigils (rubbing of medallion on journal page, sigil included).

Ambushed at night by more of these warriors. They outnumber us heavily. A hidden archer very nearly kills Vralino. Vralino is nearly dead, Elisen is badly wounded. Fighting when necessary is good. Fighting when death is inevitable is foolish.

I surrender. Attackers escort us back to Clear Creek Crossing. They talk as we walk, thinking we do not understand. They speak Theran. They are growing vines from strange sigils. Seek to envelop the tower. Tower is sacred to Upandal. Attempt to drain energy, use it for some purpose.

Villainous.

We will have to return. Deal with this tower. Failure teaches lessons; it is for us to learn them.
