Legends Through Shadow Ep 1 - Khrahndûm's Journal Entry

by Hawke published Jan 23, 2017 12:15 AM, last modified Jan 27, 2017 12:41 AM
This is an excerpt from Khrahdûm "Ironflute" Hect's raw journal. It is not his book of verse or prose. "I was earning my keep as a bard in the village Inn, when strange events began to take place, clearly a story needing a bard's presence to record for the sake of posterity..."

Day 0

"Have been in the village for a few weeks now.

Earning my keep with music, song, and tales.

No further sign of pursuit so far. But also no further leads toward clearing my name.

The muses tell me I should wait here and watch for a story."


Day 1

"Today, a story clearly began, and the "muses in my head" spoke to me literally in words (a first!). 

I first watched, then realized we were all part of, as strange events unfolded within the Inn and street without.

Strange voices in my head, ominous letters to others, a floating and talking book for a walock, a halfling, and a crazy old (and possessed?) man.

All with the same message.

We are to go to Fallbourne Forest.

I wish not to go to that dark place again.

The muses have me making a cheery ditty about such a grim place, perhaps to lift my spirits, as well as those around me, in the face of such unpleasantness.

Some of the party seem deeply involved with the criminal underground. This lead to a brief but deadly battle against overwhelming numbers.

At first we held our own and seemed to have the advantage.

I did what little I could to protect these new potential comrades in arms.

But their numbers continued to grow, and they seemed even stronger in their abilities.

Though they could have finished us, they backed off.

We are resting briefly to allow the more greviously wounded a chance to recover.

We will soon be on the road that will take us down the dark paths of Fallbourne Forest..."
