Sul, 11th Aryth 998 YK
Dear Mother and Father
Today I saw a huge wolf. You probably can’t even image how big it was. It was so super huge that it was like 4 times my size. Lucky I was keeping an eye out for the Charlie Company and scouting ahead or the wolf might have gotten the jump on us. I saw it in time to run back to Lt. Lyn yelling that there was a huge blood covered wolf was coming our way.
We fought it so well. It was even harder because we had a broken war forged called Fleet and a captive called Javi. Oh right, we caught a captive. Well I found him hiding in a cave, with a wooden wand thing. He wasn’t hiding with a wooden want thing, I found him with one. We were sent on a mission by the Mayor of Arcanix to find a bad guy who stole some stuff from a Kondarrak bank. The gruff dwarf man called Blawrath had followed the lead from Passage to Arcanix and told the Major who told us to find the guy and the stolen stuff.
Anyway he asked us to catch this guy called Javi, but they didn’t know where he was, so they gave us some magic sticks that would help us like find him or something. Well these sticks did eventually work and like I said found the bad guy in a cave out towards the blackcaps, well the little hills towards to Blackcaps. Did you know that that’s as far as I’ve even been from home now.
The huge wolf came up and totally hurt me. He almost took me out with one claw, I ran away but he got me again and out I went. Down like a sack of galifars.
I woke back up and kept running and Lt. Lyn fell down, but don’t worry. I got the wolf. I did it, I killed him and saved the whole company.
I thought for a second that wolves had poison fangs but then I remembered that that’s snakes, so I couldn’t get any reagents from it.
So we made it all the way back to town and the bad guy, Javi, said that he had some stuff in his backpack which we’d left in the cave, so Lt Lyn took Fleet, the war forged, back to the barracks.
Javi gave us all this information but he didn’t know as much as you would hope. I don’t know if you know this or if i mentioned it before but he robbed a vault from a Kondarrk bank. He wants to be some sort of seeker and got the order from a guy in the Blood of Vol church. The main priest there is father Fenden.
Javi, the bad guy also mentioned that he took a rubbing of the brick thing he stole. Oh I didn’t mention it but he, Javi, stole some old brick thing and the owner wants it back because it’s stolen. But when I saw the rubbing I couldn’t read it, no one in the company could. So we went all the way back to the cave, it was a long way there and back again and I didn’t get to go further away from home than last time
Well we ended up letting Javi go. He seemed like a good enough bad guy in the end and he gave us all the information he could.
I learned some new things as well. I can now punch really hard; like harder than a normal person, probably harder than you Father.
Lt. Lyn told Mr Blawrath about Javi and that his mother and step father saw him and he seemed a bit angry, Mr Blawrath that is. Then the mayor, Rawlo ir’Trannik told us that the paperwork for our military release wasn’t in yet which is super annoying, I’m worried that we won’t be able to leave Arcanix, bt Lt. Lyn promised he’d show me Breland!
Although now because we were part of the Aundair army we get discounts for stuff at the Platinum Poultice, that’s where Mr Sagewind works, wink! And Mithrill Supplies. We got letters about it and everything. Also Mr Jannix ithur, the wood cutter, butchered his wife. Like cut her up into pieces and everything. It sounded really bad and gross.
I went to see Mr Sagewind, he lets me call him Morgur, and he’s helping me to continue with my poison training. I know I promised you Mother that I would and I am so you don’t need to worry about it. I’m learning heaps. Did you know that different plants and trees grow in different, what they call, climates? That means you can’t find all the things you need here or there, you need to go everywhere to look for them. Mr Morgur said that the local tavern master, Nato Gallandar, is not selling him pure alcohol to the Platinum Poultice, which is gonna make it real hard for me to pay to get any poisons made. Is there any way you can send me some gallifars to get me started? I’ve been saving up for my poisons kit but I don’t have enough yet. Oh, and also, Alpha Company (I’m in Charlie Company remember) hasn’t come back yet. Luna thinks that this is because of the Blood of Vol.
So it turns out that Mr Gallandar is selling all of his pure alcohol to Mr Drazzel ir’Pride Sword or Pridesword – we don’t know yet. The shipments are going to the manor of Pride Swords or Pridesword just outside of Arcanix but House Orien are not being used for this moving stuff ‘cause it’s so close.
You were right Mother and Father, gallifars do work better than questions, promises or maybe threats. We didn’t threaten him but I gave him a gallifar and now he’s happy with us and not angry or scared. Did I give him too much?
So, we need to get this Fleet guy, the war forged, fixed ‘cause his arms aren’t attached anymore and his legs are all broke and stuff. He can’t walk or anything and we need to get him fixed. He was trapped down a hole in the cave for like 15 years so he didn’t even know the war had ended and that the treaty of thrown hold means that he is now a, well that he now has all the rights of us. He’s really cool and I told him, I guess he’s a him, anyway I told him about all the places that am going to travel and he told me about places through Thrane that he’s been. I’ve never been to Thrane before, but one day soon I will.
Anyway after doing my meditation, yes I’m doing all my stretches like you taught me Mother, we were woken for the day of the celebration and then A senior guard called Roy told us that Arcanix was being attacked, from the river. So we, that is Charlie Company, ran and saw that the water in Lake galifar was super-duper emptied or something.
There all these like big holes in the sand, and we had to go into them. We ended up fighting some monsters. Some looked like they were like fish men things or something and another had a light. That one had some parts on it that looked tree-ish. I killed one all by myself. I one shot it. Stabbed it right through and it died right there. We were outnumbered but then I killed one, but I got knocked out again today. That’s twice in like a week.
Anyway I have to go now ‘cause there’s lots to do and I need to find or make more money. Please Please Please send gallifars for the poison kit, I promise I’ll do real well at it. Also; I’ve been practicing my Dwarven with Lt. Lyn.
