Journal of Fruven Dryadson- 36th entry
Father said he would be teaching me a new spell tomorrow, he expects me to spend my free days studying it. The magic is very useful admitted, but its just so boring to learn. Particularly since Grace Songsteel asked me to go to the midsummer party with her. Its getting late, so this will have to be a short entry, i will record my spell notes soon…ish.
Journal of Fruven Dryadson- A new chapter 1st entry
I had forgot i had this old thing, but now seems the time to bring it back out, considering its one of the few things that survived the fire. Perhaps a charm father placed on it before giving it to me. Anyway, i am getting away from the topic.
I am recording this before i sleep, one days worth journey to the moat-house me and my companions shall be investigating. Ryslip seems to have recovered fully from his ordeal, and hopefully learned a lesson from it. But i am losing my thoughts again, i shall start from the beginning.
After the fire which burnt down my village i had to get work to support myself, and hopefully fund my search for more power, in order to prevent those who would abuse magic such as the necromancer who destroyed my village. After several odd-jobs which amounted to nothing I joined up to guard a caravan, and that is where i met my current companions.
Foremost, there is the wizard Ilmari. He seems a good sort as well as, I’m ashamed to say, far more focused on his studies than i ever was. I have a good feeling about having him with us, despite his unusual like for illusion (i am not one to judge, much). He expressed an interest in sharing knowledge, which i admit I have tried to avoid out of embarrassment for how little i have. Either way, i hope in time we can learn from each other.
Next is Ryslip, our gnome companion. When we first met he was polite enough, though rather quiet, though i must admit he hasn’t given me the best impression of himself since then, what with the whole spellbook fiasco. Still, he got his just rewards, and i believe he had no ill intent. However i will be keeping an eye on him.
Next we come to Ling, a very serious young lad, but he has a good soul. I am glad we have him in the group, for both his help in dangerous situations, and for his rather good example he sets for the others. I think he and I share many of the same views, the others seem a bit ‘loose’ with the laws.
Last is Tamar, another user of the arcane arts, though i believe he also has other talents i am unaware of. Either way i cannot say much about him, as i have barely seen glimpses so far. I will have to assess his character when i get a good chance.
These are the group, along with a young lad from the town, who are accompanying me to the old moat-house that our new employers have asked us to look at, for signs of bandits. I have a good feeling about them, hopefully we will accomplish some good together. It is getting late now and I may need my strength for tomorrow, so i shall retire for the night.
