The Mark of Prophecy

Entry 30

From the Account of Dolph ir’Aeolus…

(The following represents a portion of an overheard conversation between Aeolus and his owl familiar, Amfemys.)

So, this is the boat we came up the river on. This was where I found you.

(Hoot)

I know it’s not much, but it did exactly what it was supposed to do for us.

(Hoot hoot)

Could you calm down for a little bit, please? I need to write this thing.

(HOOT)

Fine, be that way.

Dear Journal,

So, we made it up-river, as I previously recounted. We left Adrik with the boat, so that we’d hopefully still have one when we got back, then proceeded inland with our prisoner.

Our prisoner very much did not want to be where we were going. He described it as a “place of death,” and ran far away as fast as possible when we released him.

We then entered the castle from a hole in one of the side walls, so as to avoid potential traps on the front door. We left Balathron on the guard watch outside, so we didn’t have to worry as much about people following us in. In retropsect, that was a bit unwise, as while my healing infusions are effective, his own inspirational leadership has oftentimes been all that has kept us on our feet in the past.

Exploring some empty rooms, we went down into a dungeon, where we encountered some undead. One of Thorn’s powers came quite in handy for this, and we dispatched them relatively easily.

Moving back upstairs, we went up to the second floor of the castle, which is now effectively the top floor. I took this opportunity to let Amfemys go flying, and looked through her eyes for the first time.

(Hoot.)

Amfemys says hi, Journal. Also, she apparently quite likes flying, unsurprisingly. I can’t disagree with her…seeing through her eyes was one of the more awesome things ever. I haven’t enjoyed airship travel that much, but solo flight was rather spectacular.

Anyway, we moved back downstairs, did some more exploring…fought more drow.

(HOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!)

Amfemys apparently rather dislikes drow, Journal. I’m inclined to agree with her, though neither of us comes close to Thorn on that front.

(Hoo-hoot…)

Amfemys has asked me to note that she’s fairly terrified of Thorn. I am too. I don’t expect him to be around much longer after we return to Stormreach. Traveling with a fervent worshiper of the Dark Six, The Fury in particular, is troubling, to say the least

I should also note that Melchizedek had one of his finest moments on in the second room of drow we encountered. He paid for it dearly…he was hurt pretty badly by the end, but he did a fair amount of damage to the drow. Some of these drow we managed to keep prisoner, but later released, rather than leave them at Thorn’s “mercy.” Good thinking by Tethys to do that.

(Hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot…)

Amfemys continues to insist that Tethys and I should mate. Which had crossed my mind before but…the thought’s mildly terrifying, to be quite honest. I say something wrong, and next thing I know there’s a rapier going through my chest…

At the same time, though, it isn’t as if I have multiple lives to take advantage of. Perhaps I’ll ask her out sometime soon.

(HOOT)

Amfemys insists on it being immediate. Maybe we can find some nice, relatively secluded part of Stormreach to go visit. Not the best date ever…but it’d be better than trying to go on one aboard ship.

(hoot hoot)
