Reign of Winter

Katryn's Log 7

Zantai and that mage are dead. Serves her right, that arrogant bitch caused this by jumping ahead, leading us to our doom! I feel myself losing my patience more and more. Everything is becoming a blur. There was a blue lady and a bearded guy and some ice dragon or something.

But I won’t forget my comrades, my fallen friends. I carved two statues for Zantai. One for the last kill we had together, and the other for me to carry to remember him by. When I hold it it feels that he is still fighting by my side, forever…

Siliel's Story Unfolding: Chapter Four. the final chapter

It seems as though my tale was cut short . . it has been brought to an abrupt end . . . It seems that this shall be my final chapter . . . My journey was short, as my life . . . I will never complete my goals . . never find happiness . . . at least I can leave this horrid world with the knowledge that I will not be missed. Who could ever miss someone like me? Someone who only ever thought of themself . . . They won’t miss me . . it’s better that way . . . I see a river…

Katryn's Log 6

After waking up covered in gore, I decided the first thing I should do is get washed off and dress in clean clothes. Luckily the place where we rested was a bathing area, so I quickly took advantage of that. The others didn’t really bother me, and truth be told it wouldn’t bother me for them to see. After all, my fur was my only clothing for a long time, locked in those rooms, forced into death matches against other children like me…

We ascended the stairs and faced Muriel, I helped to end her, because it was her who sent those guards after us. Unfortunately, the spellcaster decided to open doors qucikly and put us all in danger. I was called upon to use my rage against a giant of a woman who healed supernaturally fast. Zantai, Zantai, he took attacks for me and even, I feel, protected others when I was uncontrollable. Things begin to blur. I hope to apologize because I did scratch him up pretty good today.

I’m sorry I can’t control myself.

Today we were ambushed by a platoon of guards, and I ripped a few to shreds. AFterwards we ran into a bird, who tried to fly off with Telom. I could only watch in fear and confusion as Skinner and the others tried to hit it, my shots were useless against its magical ability.

Now we find ourselves in the Pale tower, and I can only imagine what we will find.

It has been a few days, my hand other party injuries have healed. We left the town and headed to complete the nonsensical mission given to us by the crazed old man in the woods. Shortly afterwards we encountered a conniving bird who tried to fly away with the gnome. It wasn’t long before Skinner knocked the wretched thing straight out of the sky. Afterwards we continued and I was surprised to find that the old mans words may not all have been pure nonsense. We found a magically enchanted tower made of pure ice, that hurt anyone that crossed into it. It seems to fit the description the man gave us. Once inside, we faced three puny guards and an Ice troll. The guards were quickly disposed of by my “Comrades”. I personally saw to the troll’s demise by obliterating the creature with a Scorching ray spell that I channeled through my musket.

We shall now continue on this ludicrous mission and venture farther into the tower. Maybe I’ll get lucky and maybe that moron, Katryn, will get herself killed. I have now seen first hand that she loses her mind in battle. She was stupid enough to attack Skinner. That action should speak for itself. I can’t have her running around and being a risk to my safety. Not only she a complete imbecile, but she is highly obnoxious as well. I have an extreme dislike for the eye patch wearing, and psychotic, feline. This should be quite obvious by now.

Katryn's Log 4

Our journies took us to a strange portal in the center of the forest. There we faced a troll, which we felled easily, but a man emerged from the portal. Claiming to be a servant of the queen of witches, my blood began to boil, but he told us that she was betrayed by her daughter, typical arcane behavior, and Elvana, queen of Irrisen, was planning on making the whole world frozen in ice.

I cannot allow that to happen, but I feel slightly dirty for agreeing to help a witch stop another witch, but I can’t help but think about how much stronger I feel. The power is quite a rush…

Siliel's Story Unfolding: Chapter Two

This rag tag team of misfits seems to show an utter disregard for the help I give them. They are completely ungrateful for my actions. I saved their lives and they try to pawn off first watch ON ME? I am an asset to this “Team” that the others have yet to realize.

After yet another polar bear attack we were left with more unusable amounts of meat and we trudged forward. After some amount of travel we came across the source of this wretched cold: A portal to Irrisen. We dispatched of its guardian with little hassle and were shortly there after met with the arrival of a strange old man. He went on and on, spewing nonsense about being a “Black Rider of Baba Yaga”. Needless to say, these are nothing but the words of a madman. He told us that we would have to deactivate some sort of tower using the “keys” he gave us, that were nothing more than random objects. One of these is a mask that I took into my possession. He proceeded to “activate” the “Keys” by slitting his throat and ending his poor excuse for an existence.

Sadly, these fools I’ve been cooperating with dragged me through the portal, via the rope that tied us all together in this abominable snow, and to a nearby village. Here we took refuge from an oncoming blizzard inside of an igloo, where we were spoken to by a woman standing outside. She questioned us about our reasons for being in Irrisen. I saw no harm in telling her about the crazed old man in the forest who told us to come here. While I may not have seen anything wrong in my words, the other members of the party showed their disapproval. In the morning we wandered the town and found that it was strikingly similar to the one we had left on the other side of world, villagers included. Shortly afterwards we were attacked by a couple at the local pub. We quickly dispatched of them due to their less than mediocre fightong ability, and I personally left their establishment ablaze.

For how much longer will I have to deal with these imbeciles? And for how much longer must I wait for my goals to be met? Only time will tell . . .

Notes of Events 1 (session 4?)
Telom's Notes to self

>Tiny, tiny fey- hard to hit, especially in the snow and very dangerous…need to brew more true strike to avoid a similar situation, good to learn early.
>The gun wizard is stubborn and foolish. She want to rest even though she is unharmed while both me and Katryn are WOUNDED. She claims she needs to rest for her spell (I get it) but her weapon would suffice for the night. She will get nicer to us one day, even if it is in her interest to keep us on her side.
>Frost Furs in pack are itching to be crafted into a tanglefoot bag
>Zantai and Sylynx have returned from town, I thought they stayed behind for good. Nice to have them back.
>Meet the Black Rider of Baba Yaga, learned how to stop the cold. To stop the cold is to venture into Isseren and battle the current queen. I’m sure I find something neat there.
>Killed troll, nothing of use discovered.
>Warped to Isseren, met giant mantis, killed giant mantis, met Nadya Petska. Informed her of her daughter’s fate (the strange doll and ghost, may the gods give her peace). She will aid us.
>Met an icy bard, nice music, but meeting such a person was too good to be true in this situation. We tried to lie to keep our motives unclear, but Siliel told the bard that she was sent here by an old man in the woods. With all my years of being near adventurers, it is clear that they are the only type of people who would encounter such a strange thing. Perhaps she will learn from this mistake and perhaps the bard forgets what she heard and saw…perhaps.
>BIRDS, clawing and scratching. Katryn’s eyes were wounded but quick treatment prevented damage.
>Town, sold everything and divided the shares, they trust me with their gold :), they are growing fond of me.
>Bartender and his wife try to drive us out of town, force required, they burnt their stuff. No deaths, perhaps these are the only violent locals.
>stock-12 healing potions_good- 4 weapon poison_low, require more-1 liquid blade_emergency only -3 sunrods_not important now -trail rations_bear jerky, good -500 gold for brewing and alchemy for group.

We spent most of our day tracking a weasel, but we found the spirit of a little girl stuck to a doll. My blood boiled at the thought of what that girl had been through, just to work some hut.

We destroyed the detestable thing, but I was attacked by the weasel. As it struck, my mind flashed back to the first time I was sent to the arena. My claws were sharpened on the blood of many. I dare not think of how many. The only reason I survived was because those others died.

So many died…

Siliel's Story Unfolding: Chapter One

I came to this small town to continue my search for money and more advanced firearms, and found a plethora of oddities. Where shall I begin? The weather is cold for a tropic region, so cold that there is even snow. Second is the people. Among your every day average Joe villagers a number of adventurous seeming people,if they even deserve a term as polite as that.

There is the disgustingly optimistic gnome, the hulking door man, they eye-patch wearing feline with a hatred of magic, the metal faced man, and the horribly happy cat. We were all recruited as a last minute rag tag team to find some missing noble women. I only agreed to join them because of the gold reward offered for the completion of the task. We set off, after a short shopping trip, for the forest beyond the town’s boundaries. Much to my surprise, they are not completely incompetent. Well, at least, not all of them that is. The doorman and the gnome seem to be of some use, not so much the rest of the lot. At least they are not my responsibility.

I aim to take advantage of the seeming lack of intelligence of the door man, so that I may further my own goals. The sooner I have him at my will, the sooner I can leave this group of misfits behind me with some benefit.
