  • War Room: A recap

    As some of you have expressed some concerns about not having enough time at the meeting, or it having been late and people may have been tired, next session will begin with a bit of a retcon in place: the meeting will not have yet been adjourned. You …

  • Entry 16. Loss and Gain

    Entry 16. The weight of responsibility feels inordinately heavy on my shoulders. It didn’t really hit me until I was standing outside with the Queen, being introduced to the knights and specialists that were going to accompany us to Drezen. I felt …

  • Entry 18 - Hope

    Entry 17. The moment I saw Sir Reginald’s face, I knew something was wrong. He was blushing deeply red and staring at me, while fumbling to take his cloak off. In my haste to get to Avashniel’s side, I had forgotten that the only thing I was wearing …

  • Entry 18 - The March from Kenebras

    Entry 18. There was a palpable energy the morning that we left to start the march. It was surprising because really we were only a small fraction of the Queen’s army. Much more of her forces were not leaving Kenebras just yet, and (hopefully) even more …

  • Entry 19 - The Right Time

    Entry 19. The Goddess’s light is almost extinguished when we stop for camp again. The march is physically exhausting, but it is almost more mentally taxing. Avashniel is always in my thoughts but I give him the space I think he wants. A night’s rest …

  • The Temple and The Perfect Battle

    Entry 22. I could breathe easier knowing that he was still alive. But still, while unconscious, he seemed small and frail and not the tall imposing person that I knew. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve saved his life – not that I’d ever bring that …

  • Entry 23 - The Beginning of the End

    Entry 23 [This entire entry is written in a shaky hand, and the ink looks to be smeared in places] I am sitting on Melsande’s wasp again. We’re marching toward Drezen, our final destination on this journey. I considered not writing this entry at …

  • Entry 24 - On the Doorstep

    Entry 24 We spent an indeterminably long time on the road. There was nothing to do or see while we were marching. All I had was my thoughts. My mind flicked from one subject to another – first I thought of the howls of anguish that had come from Sociel …

  • Entry 25 - The Collapse Before Drezen

    Entry 25. Goddess, what did I do? WHAT DID I DO? I’m writing this on the backs of Lord Horgus Gwurm’s highly organized packing sheets for goods that have already been consumed because… I GAVE AVASHNIEL MY JOURNAL. I so often use my writing to clear …

  • Entry 26 - Losing Humanity

    Entry 26. I can remember the exact moment I really realized that I was different from everyone else. Honestly, I was probably blessed with ignorance of this fact for far longer than I should have been. Yes, I always did know that my hair was gold and …

  • Entry 27 - Conquered

    Entry 27 – The last memory I had was of collapsing to the ground a few feet away from the smoldering remains of the fire that had consumed the small girl’s body. Even as tired and blood-deprived as I had been, I knew at that moment that I hadn’t …

  • Entry 28 - The Tower Siege

    Entry 28 If I had any dreams at all I didn’t remember them. Perhaps arcane sleep prevents you from dreaming. When I opened my eyes it was fully daylight out. I couldn’t remember the last time I had missed a sunrise. My body felt whole again. A few …

  • Entry 29 - The Longest Night

    Entry 29 At the moment of Calder’s realization Montgomery entered the tent and unceremoniously spit out a gold coin on the ground. Normally, this would be a very strange occurrence, but considering the day’s events, it ranked barely above sleeping and …

  • Entry 30 - Forged in Strife

    Entry 30. It was slow going bringing Calder to our tent, but I had healed him as much as his weakened body seemed to be taking. I don’t think I had ever seen him quite so…shrunken. Whatever the commander had done to him, it was nothing that I knew how …

  • Entry 31 - The Chimera

    Entry 31. [Someone will find her laying down on her side on her cot in the command tent, her back facing the middle of the room, looking like she’s comfortably sleeping. She is still in her damaged chainmail armor. On closer inspection the hand …

  • Entry 32 - The Nightmare

    Entry 32: After the poison paralyzed my hands my journal fell to the ground. I felt its cold grip work its way up my neck and into my face. I was so incredibly scared. Was this it? Were these the last moments of my life? Was Avashniel collapsing …

  • Entry 33 - A Moment of Peace

    Entry 33. I saw Avashniel sitting as his desk. He looked tired, and his hands covered his face. I asked softly, “Avashniel?” He didn’t look up, but in that low monotone voice he said, “Oh good. You’re awake.” It wasn’t the same husky, passion-filled …

  • Entry 34 - The Many Evils of the Crypt

    Entry 34. I sat facing the sun for as many minutes as I thought I could spare. I let the sun’s heat bathe me until the sounds of the increasingly active camp broke my concentration fully. I would have to make some peace with Avashniel, and before we …

  • Entry 35 - Many Miracles

    Entry 35 - I looked up at him, the tall blue specter, the remnants of the vampire that was Halldron Iddris, The Fallen. I whispered to him, “She forgave you,” and I sighed a stress-relieving breath. I was glad that once again Sarenrae’s ideals and mine …

  • Entry 36 - Nightmares Before Citadel Dresen

    Entry 36: I spoke to Avashniel. He is going to release me from the soul bind that tethers his life to mine. This happened after a lot of other things that I likely should write about first… but I can’t stop thinking about it. I’m free again to take …

    Entry 37 - We had a War Council. The final one before the assault on Citadel Dresen. I’m going to refrain from writing the details of our plan for now and saying who was in favor of which mode of action. I wouldn’t want our enemies to know exactly how …

  • Entry 38: The Battle at Citadel Dresen

    Entry 38. The Temple of Sarenrae taught me well. All my fear from earlier in the day transformed into crystal clarity in battle. We were taught not to waver in battle, to be as relentless as the mid-day sun on a summer day. Fear before battle helps you …

  • Entry 39 - Facing Our Enemies

    Entry 39. My eyes were closed tight in concentration and I was on my knees holding one bloody hand to the Radiance and pressing the other hand to Sociel’s chest when I finally heard his gasp of painful breath. Every part of me, inside and out, was …

  • Entry 56 - The Effects of Time

    Entry 56. After the kiss gently ended we looked at each other for a few moments. Our hands were clasped lightly under the enchanted water. He looked at me like he expected me to say something and in response I felt like I should. A million feelings …
