Well I wish I could say we have a fine group of people, however, we have a drow mage that thinks he can ‘evolve’ into a dragon with time and practice. A gnome ‘mechanic’ that has alot of mustaches a weird beard and acts as if he is still wearing diapers. A zealot of a priestess, not bad to look at but she will not stop talking of her missionary work. An uptight expedition leader who happens to be a ‘doctor’ or a cleric without the spells. Finally we get to the captain of the boat… he is as much of pain in the neck as the rest of them, taking a nip when he thinks no one is looking. It is so blatant that a blind man could see it. I am sure this trip is going to be so fun. (Sarcasm). I just hope i can find that amulet. I would kill the drow but it wouldn’t be hard to guess who did it. Short list of suspects and no where to go, i will bide my time.
Really getting sick of not being able to touch solid ground. Fiona isnt half as bad as she started out to be, she still talks alot. Still don’t trust the ‘leader’ as Dr. Frost is irritatingly snooty, would really like to shove my foot up his rear end. That would give him a reason to look down his nose at everyone. Iestyn Vai’Hranozarh is constantly outside swinging on ropes and such to the humoruosly dismay of the captain. Ruben likes to poke his gnome nose were it doesnt belong, always asking questions and such, might just one night when is sleeping cut his beard off and give it to Lestin, though he says it isnt soft. (Whatever). I am getting a bit irritated by this, been out here in the middle of nowhere and i can feel us getting closer to it, yet I feel as far away from it as I was when I first awoke.
Well, we had a little pow wow and now everyone knows what I look like. It has been awhile since anyone looked upon my face without being reviled. I still don’t trust them, none of them. The amulet is real close, I can feel it calling me. Soon, I will be whole again! I inadvertantly told Fiona and now she has it in her head that i am nuts, who knows, maybe I am.
Finally made it to the island, what do ya know? MORE DROW! Wow, could this get any better? Yes it has! Our hostess (someone called Mah) who just happens to be a gnoll (the irony) has tried her best to make us feel welcomed. We have basically came when they were asleep (nocturnal) so it was to their benefit that we also rested. It seems thats each race (gnoll, dueguar, drow and human) all have their specific roles on the great island. Each to their own but they all work together. Kind of disturbing seeing drow taking orders from gnolls and dueguar actually having smiles on their faces.
We have rested and now we are treated to batka tea. It seems to have the same effect as opium into which you feel real relaxed and have a viscious hangover. I in the thrall of the tea as I didnt want to upset the locals and get myself in trouble treated them to a display of sword work. Again I shed my clothes (since my inhabitions where gone) and began. At first they thought I was crazy fighting a shadow, however they began to look at it as a dance. In some ways you could look at it as a dance, a dance of death. I am not sure but I think Yestin had sex with not 1 but 2 guys. I am not sure, dont want to know. This is because he has magic and being a matriarch society they consider him a ‘sister’. That is how Frost ended up in a dress, since he is the ‘leader’ of the group and he has stated as such (much to the suprise and dismay of the Mah) he is now wearing such clothes for only females can lead. My stint last night has people talking, they think I am part fish because I have scales and do not know what a dragon is. Oh well, they will sooner or later know what a dragon is. Ruben is going back and forth between the ship and were we are. Fiona is fitting pretty well and I can see by her face that she is on cloud 9. She is enamored with the whole idea of the female rule. I have found the amulet, much to my satisfaction and to my dismay. A gnoll by the name of Nafu (whom the Mah has chosen as our guide) is wearing it. No one knows (not even the Mah) what exactly the amulet does. They know it has some majik in it but not sure what it does. If they only knew…
We were treated to seeing the dueguar(again disturbing) and we traded a bit for some obsidian for some of our smaller weapons. Fiona went and sold her armor for a den. The Mah and everyone else seems to think that we are settling here and not leaving. Frost tries at every turn to convince them otherwise. This has failed at every turn, much to his displeasure. As for Fiona, she has no intentions of leaving. I will not leave until I have the amulet or die trying to get it. I will have to say that as far as the people here, they are not as bad as they could have been. They do eat their own but not as a dietary need. It is only during time of war and if they are fighting one and another. We have also ran into another snag, it seems the Mah has sent some drow to disassemble the ship, while we are in it! To alleviate this problem for the time being, I have devised a plan to get rid of a nemisis of the Mah’s and hope this will sedate her enough to call off her dogs.
Well, it worked well or as well as it could go. My first assessment of the group was a bit harsh. As for Ruben, he did well with projectile weapons. Fiona, though needs some help healing, she did good though. Nafu, she can not hit them as well but man, she can trip! Watch that weapon of hers, it is wicked! Yestin, well he is a good firestarter. We got our mission accomplished and talks are resuming on letting those that want to go, go. I got into it with Nafu after the fight, adrenaline rush, I do not know but I could not reject her. The amulet has changed somehow, I am sure the wild majik here has changed it.
