Whispers From Below
Rummaging in the Ruins
7th of Willow, year 1017
The last few days have been kind of hazy… I was unconscious for the last two days. I apparently overexerted myself again, and passed out! Poor Garrett had to carry me. I feel like such a burden sometimes…
We arrived at the Stronghold ruins about three days ago… The days had been pretty uneventful of our travel to the ruins. Except for the fact that Jazpur, that Elf, tried to trick me with some fake apples! I don’t know why he was trying to trick me though… What a jerk.
We’ve certainly found a lot of really nice treasures and things in these ruins, but haven’t found any vampires yet. Only these weird, nasty, gross blobs of flesh. We finished exploring the first floor, so now we’ve moved upstairs to explore it even further. I’m highly concerned about us spending too much time here though… It’s a mere 10 days until the festival of life, and almost 3 days for us to even reach Falconshore. Regardless of what we do or do not uncover here in these ruins, we must leave here by at least the 13th to make it on time for the festival, if not sooner.
Ideally, I’d like to have all of this Orcus business taken care of before the festival of Life… but I know that won’t happen. I guess as long as I get to spend it with Garrett, everything should be fine. He’s my life… I love him so much. <3
