Seagate

Eve's Journal
Adventures at sea!

This morning I woke up and after a light breakfast on the boat I headed off to the seamstress to see if my clothes were ready. She had everything ready for me, I gave her a wrapped package of dried fish, and ten gold. I make sure I have enough supplies to last Ka and I a week’s journey to Finger.

First day out—-I finish reading the chapter in my book and spend the rest of the day working on training Ka to down.

Second day out—-I study the first spell in the book Inky Cloud. I get close but I don’t master it.

Third day out—-I study the second spell in the book Survival Instants. This was hard to understand, it’s going to take some time to get this spell.

Fourth day out—-The wind was so strong today that Knives and I both stayed in our cabins sick.

Fifth day out—-The wind has died down today, but there is a scraping sound coming from the bottom of the boat. John went down to investigate. The captain asked Knives and I to go down with John to deal with the problem. There were sets of claws poking through the bottom, attacking them got them to drop out but with out doing lethal damage they just reappeared. Knives asked the captain to rake the bottom of the boat. John was attacking the claws and I monitoring the guys patching up holes and pumping out the water.

A woman is seen swimming towards the boat screaming for help. We are suspicious of her, Knives fires a cross bow at her head, she screams and swims away. I cast Summon Nature’s Alley II and summon two octopi to attack the sirens under the boat. John sends a net down across the bottom, he caught two of the sirens and an octopus. After throwing the octopus back and one of the sirens jumped out the guys tied up the other siren and started to question the siren.

Things didn’t go well so we just started “fishing” for sirens and killing them as we hulled them on board. The sirens catch on and we bring up the two octopi. The guys hatched a plot to attach themselves to the chain and go under with weapons ready to attack those still under the boat. When they came up Knives was unconscious and there were two sirens in the net. John untied himself and went to help Knives while Ka and I attempted to kill the siren that was still alive in the net.

We looted the sirens and got four javelins and nine sets of seaweed armor. As we loot a mist appeared around it, but the boat sealed out and the sirens didn’t attack us. The captain said because of this we had to tack an extra day onto our journey.

Sixth day out—It dawned a nice day. John and Knives were on deck with their books reading/studying. I spent the day on deck working on the down trick with Ka.

Seventh day out—Today was rain. I spent the day inside in my room. I didn’t get far in my studies, I don’t like being cooped up inside all day. I spent a good deal of the day dreaming of being out in the sun.

Eight day out—Wind died down today, we might be out at sea a bit longer. I worked on the down trick with Ka today on deck. Knives studied on deck, and John worked with the crew.

Ninth day out—Still no wind and John spent time hanging out with the crew while they waited for the wind to pick up. Knives could still be found on deck studying. Ka and I spent the day on deck working on the new trick.

Tenth day out—Today there is wind! The captain says we’ll reach Finger tomorrow. John worked with the crew, Knives trained and Ka and I kept working on down.

Eleventh day out—Finger is in sight. I finish teaching Ka down about the time we reached the port of Baylet. Finger is a large island, much bigger than Armita. There are mountains that look similar to volcanos, that are surrounded in mist. The land appears to be jungles and marsh. Ka and I are excited about the jungles.

Journey to a new island and the adventures we find there

We left Armita today. The captain tells us it’s a two day ride to our next stop of Hesta. I spent two days training Ka to guard me. We still have some things to work on but it’s a start. Knives spent our two days on the boat learning spells and John spent his time training with his lance.

As we neared the island we noticed black smoke up off the island. The captain assured us that it was just Hesta’s signal fire. From where we are we can see that the island is mostly tear shaped with the cliffs on one side and the town of Hesta taking up the rest of the island. Jenny asked me if I wanted to go with her, I decide against it I don’t want to risk exposing the resistance if something was to happen to me while I travel with John and Knives.

I disembark with Ka and we carefully make our way through town. People can’t help but stare at us, a tall woman covered in scales with a jaguar walking besides her is bound to draw some attention. We spend much of the morning out in the fields, I decided that I should go into town and run some errands. I head back into town and find a little hole in the wall seamstress. She offers to hem my dresses and pants for ten gold and some of my dried fish. Selling off my fish, I decided to find some fishing supplies and go catch some more. I caught three small trout then cleaned and dried them.

After storing the fish in my bag I went out to find Ka. Then we head down to the docks and back onto the boat. Jenny was back and I sat around listening to her and the captain talk about the ghost stories of the island. When the guys make it back on to the boat Jenny tells us about her meeting with the island”s resistance members. Jenny tells the guys that the resistance members here think they might be able to help the guys with their tracking issue. But they aren’t too sure about them so to help out we need to go to Finger to help with a problem there. We leave for that in two days.

John, Knives, and I go exploring to kill time the rest of the day. We came across a building that looked like at one point in time it could have been a church. We enter and find out that it is a research center on elementals. Knives got us into the research center and John finds me a book a merpeople that has a chapter on shifting. I get some reading in but can’t finish plus there are two spells I would like to study, so against my better judgement I take the book with me.

Knives headed back to town. John and I went to explore some more. We found a panda and slowly backed off and in doing so we ran into Knives who was headed up to the outlook fire. John and I decide to follow him up there. As we near the fire we got attacked by four giant crabs. One ran off and we killed the other three, Knives mistakenly hurt Ka. After the battle he gave me a healing potion to heal Ka.

We took the crabs to the fire and cooked and cleaned them. There were a few guys sitting up there watching us fight and guarding the fire. I share some of the crab meat with them before splitting the crab with John and Knives. We made our way back to the boat for the night.

Ride to Orlin

John, Jenny and I head out on horse to Orlin this morning. As we rode down the path Ka growled a warning. Being careful John rode forward and noticed a big spider web. Upon closer observation John noticed a large spider up in a tree that appeared to have babies on its back. John threw two flaming bottles of rum to attack the spiders. The spiders caught fire with the babies raining down onto the ground. I carefully rode through the debris and waited for the other two to ride through. We continued on the rest of the way without trouble.

As we approached the town a rider was heading towards us, it was Joseph! As we rode into the town he invited me to dinner at his home. As we sat enjoying dinner John stopped by to fill me in on the developments of the meeting with the captain. John and Jenny are heading back to Armita to gather some supplies and Knives before riding back here tomorrow. Then we head out of port. Joseph invited me to spend the night. I accepted. As socially awkward as I normally feel I don’t feel that way at all with Joseph.

Day in Armita

Upon waking a young boy entered bringing with him food for us, some bread and dried fruit, I dug in my bag and gave Ka some dried meat. Jenny, the woman, came to talk to us and introduced me to a professor who she thought would help me with my search to find a trainer. The Professor gave me two leads; one is an old woman who lives on a very small island up north. She may or may not be alive and goes by the name of Bat. To the south he said are tribes of mer-people who also are shape shifting beast. He asked me about my tribe and life within it, I told him what he wanted to know.

When I got done talking to the professor I notice that Jenny is getting Knives and John set up with disguises. I find out that we are heading out to see if there is someone who will buy stuff that John and Knives have collected. We make our way to Unique Secrets and the guys start to sell off their loot. Knives gave me a shirt. I sold the locket I had in my bag and John told me he’d share some of the money he gets from selling stuff from the battle yesterday. They also gave me a robe. I purchased a quarterstaff and a buckler.

We went back to the hideout and we had a day to get ready to head out. Knives it studying spells. John is training. I purchased two scrolls, one of webfoot and one of enlarge animal. I figure that once out at sea I can spend two days learning the spells.

I learned from the guys today that tomorrow we head to Orlin to find the captain of the ship we will be sailing on. Joseph is from Orlin, I wonder if I’ll see him.

Armita Dock Battle

I spent two days alone in the forests of this new island. After spending weeks alone on the last island I met up with two strange men and found a way off the island. I did some things that I never thought I would before leaving home. We took over a ship and made port days later. I left the boat to take Ka into the forest to hunt after all that time on the water. We both needed time to get back to nature.

This morning I noticed smoke billowing up into the air from the direction of the town. I started to make my way there when I heard horses on a near by path. As I hid in the brush I saw those two men again, this time with some riders. I learned from them that the town was being attacked. I decided to go help out and road to town with a blacksmith named Joseph. As we ride I ask where he met up with the two men I had earlier met. He said he was the blacksmith in a town on the island called Orlin and they gave these men horses and came to ride with them. I think our conversation was a little flirtatious, I’m not used to attention of men like him so it was all new to me.

As we neared the town we notice that the entrance is blocked. We then rode north and entered the center entrance. We noticed the stables were on fire so we attempted to rescue the animals. The one man, John, broke the lock on the gate and the horses stormed out of the gate. Joseph and I ride after and attempt to catch a horse for me to ride. It was quite tricky and with the help of Knives I got a white horse that has a black diamond on his face.

We went back into the town and made our way to the docks. As we neared the center of town we saw people making their way to the fortress. A woman stopped us to get help because her husband was trapped in a house. John and Knives went into the house to rescue the man. I sent Ka to go scout down by the docks, I could tell he was agitated while scouting. As a group we made our way to the docks. We notice that the fishing boats are all damaged and sinking. I see one boat that had been attacking the city left floating and it was being attacked by towers further down the coast. On the rest of the docks are what’s left of the sailors fighting a skeleton crew. This is all new to me, I’ve never seen anything like this before in my life. I decide to stay close to Joseph.

The battle was long. I got separated from Joseph during the fight. It was mass mayhem, there were bones and bodies everywhere. I was hit across my right cheek, I fear it’s going to leave a scar. As the battle winds down John and Knives capture a fey soldier, we don’t know how long he will live though. The men start to loot what they can from the carnage left spread over the docks. I find Ka and check him over, he appears to have come through with only minor wounds that should heal fast. We’ll both be stronger after a good night’s sleep. We all came out alive. Out of the three fisherman still alive when we arrived at the dock, one made it through the battle.

After the battle a woman approaches the group, with a wanted poster for Knives, John and the captain. She wants to offer them shelter because the whole city is out to get them. The boats attacking the city let it be known that if they get turned in the attack on the city will stop. Knives and John follow the woman; I decide to keep apart from them seeing as they are targets of the city. Joseph and I leave the other four men we fought with to care for the dead soldiers and fey. We try to find some place to hide out for the night. I need rest after being injured and Ka and I need to eat something. We decided to head out of the city. As we make our way out of the city we came across Knives, John, the woman, and four guards on the ground. The woman gave me a bloody handkerchief with directions to get to the university to spend the night.

Joseph and I keep making our way out of the city. He wants to return home and asks me to join him. I tell him that I don’t know if I can right now. I need to find some one who can train me and I can’t find that with him in his village. He tells me he understands the need to train. I tell him I’m sorry but I can’t go with him and I think it’s best if we part ways now, I tell him I’ll keep in touch and hope that he will try to wait for me, I’ll make my way back to him. He kisses me goodbye and heads off down the path. I look down at Ka and pat his head, “I don’t know why but we’re heading to the university to find those two. I think it’s the only way we’ll get where we need to go.”

I made my way to the university. I threw the bloody handkerchief in the air and waited while a guard showed himself. He told me to wait and returned a while later with the woman. They allowed me to enter and took me down into a room where there were people including Knives and John. My wounds were treated and I was given a bed to sleep in for the night.

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
