Fighting these fire beasts is painful. Being near them is almost unbearably hot. But I know that if they get past me they will hurt my friends. With a few mighty swings from my ax, I put them down. We move on to the high peak and find a bird that turned into a man. He told us some stuff, and he wants me to kill someone. I can do that. We go back to a broken down cabin and find some coins. On our way back south we make camp and I was awakend by the armored one telling me that there is something coming towards our camp. I don't like being woken up and yelled. I grabbed my crown and ax and went out to meet these new foes. One man stepped out of the darkness and demanded we throw down our weapons. I gave him the chance to leave peacefully but he insisted on fighting. I slew the whole band of bandits. They had their chance to leave and didn't take it. Onward south again. Two stone giants! I must not allow them near my friends. I charged at them as they hurled rocks at me. That was a good fight. I buried them in the ground. I gave them a good death and a good burial. They deserved that. Another group of people tried to kill us again. They had the strange white eyes, just like the gnolls and the one other group of people in the trees. After a few short moments they too fell before me. We have come upon our destination at last. An encampment. About 12 humans, 6 gnolls, and 3 ogres. I'm not sure how we will be able to kill all of them before they kill us. Even if I did kill all of them, if they killed just one of my friends, that battle would be a loss. I must keep my friends safe, but how can I do that against these great odds?
Keeping Ilkan alive has proven to be a full time job to say the least. I don't know what to say really, he just charges in against overwhelming odds. It takes all I have to keep him up. Fortunately the rest of the group has the good sense to stay back out of harms way. During our adventure we came across the druid we were told about. Unfortunately he was not really much help at all. So that was disappointing. As we continued on we came across 2 stone giants. Ilkan once again rushed forward to fight them. Ara, Ibn, and our sneakyfriend were able to engage from safety and we overcame these foes. Ilkan buried them and gave them as much of a proper burial a giant can have i suppose. Further into our journey we made camp. During my watch I overheard some noises at the edge of our camp. I woke Ilkan to check on it just as precaution. I mean we have a Goliath why take unnecessary risks when I don't have to. Good thing too because it turns out we were ambushed by several bandits. Once Ilkan was up soon so was everyone else. Ara took the child into the air so he could use his magic on our foes. Unfortunately his magic is still...unreliable. he summoned creatures that were frightened of him and made him smell extremely awful. I was able to get him back up however can't do much about the smell. Alas we have made it to the warlocks camp. We must defeat the evil that lurkes here before it threatens the natural world.
I don't like this plan. I don't like the blue one running into the camp alone. THE RED DRAGON HAS RETURNED! It landed next to the bird lady. It's on the ground! I rushed in at the beast and hit it with my ax until it fell. I looked to the camp and saw the occupants walking away. Where is my blue friend?! I charged the hill and ran straight into the camp. Met with some resistance I began swinging my mighty ax. I cut down an ogre before everything went black. The light has returned to my eyes! I stood picking up my ax and cleaved the second ogre down. Everything went black again. I feel the warmth of healing and it is time to kill some more gnolls! I cleaved down a gnoll this time. Everything has gone black again. The light has returned to my eyes once again! My ax was missing so I pulled my mighty maul and hit a man in the head twice. I don't understand how he was still standing. His friends surrounded me again and everything has gone black again. I have awoken. I feel refreshed, but I am bound with some of my friends close by. I don't know where we are or how long we have been here, but I will get us out of here. The two children are missing, the blue one and the normal looking one. I can only wonder what has happened to them. They may be dead or worse. I have failed.
The War-Lock's Camp *Now what happens? *Well now, Launcelot, Galahad, and I wait until nightfall and then leap out of the rabbit and take the French by surprise, not only by surprise but totally unarmed! *Who ... Who breaks out? *Er ... We ... Launcelot, Galahad, and I ... Er ... leap out of the rabbit and ... *Look, if we were to build a large wooden badger... *Run away!
The bird lady is moving around alot behind me. I don't want to do anything. Death is preferable to living with having failed my friends. A new enemy has walked in. By the way everyone is deferring to him, I can only assume that he is their leader. After all of the guards left, he spoke. With the blue one's voice! He didn't die! And the other little one has returned as well. I am so happy that they are safe. The bird lady and the little one are going to search for our equipment. I hear the sounds of combat. The blue one told me to leave out the back of the tent. I cannot do that. I burst from the tent to find the bird lady being peppered with arrows and the little one being chased by men. I yelled as loud as I could to attract everyone's attention. To my luck everyone turned to me. I began running. The ogres and gnolls began chasing me. The men however circled around the blue one in disguise. I will come back for him. And I provided a much needed distraction for the bird lady and the other little one. We met back up in a copse of trees and the blue one wasn't far behind us. We set off to find out more information. We met the druid again. He gave us directions to an area with more activity than normal. We were off again. We were attacked by some bird deer which I made short work of and we got some tasty meat off of. Then we found some shiny stuff with flying rock monsters. I also made short work of them. Then we were attacked by a bone snake. I speared it with a javelin and it crumbled mere moments after I struck it. The bird lady needs to stop flying away from me. She keeps getting attacked when she flies away from me.
During our time in captivity I thought it best to spend time in deep prayer. It was a truly remarkable experience. Almost as though my soul left my body and traveled to a beautiful place. A place of white sandy beaches and palm trees, warm sun AND TURTLES! I'm not sure really what happened while I was on my spiritual journey. I'm not sure entirely how long I was gone for either. When I came to though it would seem that we somehow managed to escape capture. So that's good. I must now regain my composure and settle back into this grind towards justice.

I feel so bad about breaking this rock man's rocks. I tried to apologize, but a sunburned elf magically fixed them. He needs to stay out of the sun before he dies. I mean he is already burned black! We heard something up ahead and for whatever reason they don't want me to go check it out. The little one comes running back and shortly after that two, two-headed giants come around the bend. They are talking about getting married! That is so exciting. They asked if I was a friend of the bride or groom and I said bride. Then they tried to hurt me. It didn't work out well for them. I knocked the bride out and was going to knock out the groom, because who am I to ruin their wedding. Sadly an arrow took his life. I carved into a stone that I am sorry that her husband to be was slain. We found an outpost of some kind and I fell in a hole. There are holes in the wall down here. I guess I better prepare for spikes to come out of those holes. Nay not spikes. Feathers! And they are trying to touch my ax! Why did the burned elf jump into the hole on top of me. I warned him that if he hurts me again I will hurt him back. I cut both of them off and my ax is looking pretty broken. Two more feathers! I cut them off with my hand ax which now also looks broken. He started climbing up the rope out of the hole so I smashed down the wall with the holes in it to find two cockroaches! The black one shot me! I will hit him when I am though with these bugs! I squashed them both with my mighty hammer. I climbed out of the pit and struck him with lightning. I hope that is lesson enough for him. Gnolls! I rush into the fight once again and slay the three of them. Then people start opening doors without me there and find five more gnolls. I waded into them slaying every last one of them. Who knows what else we will find in this place. Hopefully a new ax!
More new friends! I never thought that I would meet so many new friends out here in the wilderness. We went out to a cave and tried to rest and a group of four cloud giants came walking up to our cave. They seemed friendly and they even guarded us while we rested. After that we went back to where we were before and I squished some big mosquitoes and the blue one broke a statue. Then we began exploring the compound. I found a coffin with a big thing over it. I pulled it down and the coffin filled with blood. This is weird. Everyone wanted to move onto the next room which is filled with junk and a box. I want the box. I'm going to go get it. Tentacles! They are trying to get me. Shadow Ghosts! The bird lady assures me that my ring will protect me from the ghosts. So I swing away and slay all three of them barely taking a scratch! This ring really does work! The box has a heart in it and the blue one insisted on breaking it himself. It took a long time but he finally smashed it. I found some really cool bracers that give me even more strength! I'm ready for the next fight.
I think we have cleared out most of the Warlock's minions. Ogres, gnolls, humans. There are so many of them. Now hell hounds. Their fire hurts, but luckily for me they cannot withstand the heat (or my ax) and must leave the kitchen. There is an evil centipede statue of an evil god here. It must be destroyed. My friends found some thing inside it and I crushed the statue and some of the things that were taken from it. They found a stick that turned out to be an ancient artifact that belonged to Pelagia! We must rest. We holed up in a bedroom and barricaded the door. The warlock and some of his minions battered the door down. I don't know if we can defeat them but I will try. I slayed one man and the gnoll with my ax. The ugly beaked creature and the other human fell to the ground frightened to death of my mighty ax. With two mighty blows from my ax the warlock too fell to the ground dead. I think it is time to go home to the sea. I am tired of all of this walking around. I need a good swim.
Alas the warlock is dead. We have truly done something of note here. Vanquishing the the evil in this land. Traveling back to the city with my fellow companions for some much welcomed rest has lifted our spirits. Unfortunately it seems that our moment of rest is to be brief. It would seem there is more evil in that needs slaying. We were given a task of great importance and so once again we are off. We have reached our destination what appears to be a long abandoned castle of sorts. Immediately we were attacked by huge birds. After we finished them off more kept coming. We made haste towards the inside hall of the castle. Towards safety we though. But no. There were 2 air elemental waiting inside for us. Ilkan can fly now at least for a little while. I'll admit at first I had my concerns but it has proven most useful considering he's fighting over a pit with a hole and a very long drop. After the elementals were slain we explore some more. It took us a few minutes to make our way up a crumbling stair case. Of course when we reach the top we are once again attacked by a very large flying worm creature. It seems that things keep going from bad to worse. I have the utmost confidence in my team and we will prevail. Victory or death!
