Entry – 8
We made it to the Elven city. We lost Three Fist. He was killed by a pack of starving wolves. Poor guy just wouldn’t leave the roast pig, even if it killed him. I was just starting to get used to him. Oh well at least he’ll be remembered in this journal if nothing else. But we did make it to the city. It’s . . . well beautiful. Elegant, only a very ham handed individual would call it gaudy. That said there aren’t any doors or locks. Only re-growing vines and rock cubes that act as keys. Also all the houses are in the freaking trees. What kind of bullshit is this?! How am I supposed to steal a living when I cant ply my trade? Though maybe it’s just that I’m thinking of the wrong angle, regardless stealing from the elves will have to wait for a bit. Our little group has many goals in different directions.
And we all split up in order to explore these. We spent two days gathering information. Banshee found out more about the war with the devils and that she has an enormously powerful curse placed upon her. Marcus seems to be going on about finding an animal “companion”, I don’t understand why he cant get a dog. . . or better yet just talk to Raine. Speaking of Raine he doest really have a strong motive but he is still with us. I’m not sure what drives him but he is useful and fun so his company is welcome. I found that the crater outside the Elven city might hold an abandoned city of the moon elves. I want to go in there for possible plunder and to further myself.
I voiced the idea of a trek into the forbidden crater to the group. I’m writing this now as they deliberate. I don’t know for sure what my future holds, but I do know that I won’t be able to face it by myself. These people with me are probably the closest equivalent to friends that I’ve ever had. I don’t want to be alone again. The infighting between us worries me. I think that I need to endeavor to help them more and consider them teammates as apposed to tools. From this point on ill help them to succeed at their goals to the best of my abilities, however frustrating the activity may be.
