Heroes of Shaintar

Essscort Misssion pt.2
Iggy's Log

We get to the border of the Northern Gathersss, and it was all walking from here. We hiked for a couple of daysss, with Dobby and I making elaborate sheltersss for our camp. One day while we were hiking, we crosssed pathsss with a group of orcsss that didn’t ssseem to like what they sssaw with usss. Granted we knew coming into thisss that we would have to face sssome difficulty with thisss job. They obviously approached Abraham and started ssspeaking to him in his native tongue. I couldn’t tell what was being said, but I could tell that thingsss were getting worssse. One of the orcs tried to attack Horgrim, but failed.

I didn’t hesssitate to make a move on the orc that attacked Horgrim. I disssarmed him of his weapon as a warning to him, but also to ssshow mercy for not killing him…..yet. The other orcs didn’t ssseem to like that, and they ssstarted closing in on usss. I go invisible killing two of our attackersss. Horgrim with his handcuffsss on managed to kill a ssslew of them, and our newbie Tae also got one. After our altercation, we travelled for a couple more days, and were ssspotted by ANOTHER group of orcs. Horgrim tells us to run and we make a break for a foressst. Duran trippsss and before I can go invisssible to try and sssave him, I see Horgrim turn around and scoop him up and carry him into the foressst with us.

The foressst starts to get dark and creepy with black fog. I get hit from behind by sssomething, but I couldn’t make out what it was. I jussst looks like we are being attacked by shadowsss, and nothing I did would affect them. It looked like the fightersss with white sssilver weaponsss were the only onesss that could do any damage. I turned and sssaw Mittensss staring at sssomething. Ssssince I was no good on the battle field, I went over to sssee what it wasss. It looked like a ssset of reins, but there was sssomething about them that ssseemed out of the ordinary. I picked them up and all of a sssudden, they ssstarted glowing a dark green color. I gave them a flick and in a explosion of shadowsss, I was now on top of an undead horssse. I also ssstarted to feel this uncomfortable cold feeling in the back of my head, so I sssomehow make the horssse disssappear and put the reins in my pack.

With the shadow warriorsss taken care of, we ssset up a camp with watchesss. We make it through the night and travel the next day. We make it within about hundred feet of the tree line. From the treeline we could see this bright blue light shining. Dobby sssays that she can sssmell the Tempessst from that direction. We discusss our plan of action. Mittensss says that sssince this was ssstrictly a recon misssion that we should turn around and head back to hq. Horgrim thought differently I guesss becaussse it was hisss home, but he reluctantly obliged.

No sssooner we turned to leave, Horgrim was hit by this giant burssst of blue energy. I immediately go invisssible and make a run towardsss the clearing to sssee what it wasss. I sssaw these four individualsss wearing armor with blue cryssstals in it carrying these ssstrange weaponsss with the sssame crystalsss. There were alssso these other three individualsss, one a large human heavily armored with the sssame blue crystalsss, another sssmaller one that looked like a very powerful ussser of magic, and the lassst one working on this giant archway with ssssome sort of runesss carved into it. I tried to sssee as much asss I could, but the four previousss individualsss were making their way towardsss usss.

I go back to the group, and tell them that we need to go now. We currently did not ssstand a chance with thessse guysss, essspecially with the biggessst guy down. We make a run for it. Before leaving, Mittensss takesss the handcuffsss off of Horgrim. Unfortunately for him, leaving him there gave usss a better chance of sssurvival. We manage to essscape, but now we’re lossst. I ssscale up one of the treesss to sssee where the sssun is to get a sssense of what direction we need to go. We trek for asss long asss we can until we get tired. Dobby and I ssset up camp and ressst with watches again. Not too long after I get to sssleep, Dobby wakesss us and tellsss us that she sssmellsss the Tempessst again. We pack what we can and run again. We finally make it to the treeline of the Northern Gathersss. We ressst more and plan to head back to Kythrosss.

Essscort Misssion pt.1
Iggy's Log

We get a call to meet in our usssual conference room when it’s time to leave for the essscort misssion. I decided thisss time that it would be funny to show up invisssible and see if anyone could ssspot me. I walked in after everyone else, and course no one could sssee me. I did happen to sssee that we have a newcomer to our group, and Rowena was not presssent. I made my presssence known before Valerie arrived ssso not to get into trouble. Everyone was surprisssed when I became visssible much to my delight.

Valerie and sssome other rangersss come in with a giant set of white sssilver handcuffsss. Valerie goes to explain that we are going to be traveling for at least 1,000 milesss with a behemoth troll on a recon misssion that will probably last sssomewhere around two weeksss. She also goesss on to introduce usss to what looksss like our new teammate, Tae. Ssshe’s a sssmall human, but I’m sssure that ssshe has sssome kind of cool trick up here sssleeve like the ressst of us. Unfortunately ssshe doesn’t ssspeak any of our languagesss, so there goesss trying to talk to her.

Our firssst ssstop with our new friendsss is the dock where we board this giant barge which was probably the only thing big enough to fit Horgrim. The boat takesss us to Ssstagg where we are then essscorted by fellow rangersss to the border of the Northern Gathersss. There wasss even a wagon that was desssigned to fit Horgrim ssso that we wouldn’t draw too much attention to usss. Mittensss appointed our newbie Tae to drive his wagon. Once we reach the border, we’re on our own. It’s already been a few days, but I’ve got my sssnacks from the Travelling Merchant’s Guild to keep me full until I have to do anything ssserious.

Too much running. Not enough blood.
Dobby

After more walking, we run into more orcs. They start to chase us so we run. Dwarf trips. Dwarf try to fight but orcs hurt him. Big and Tall go back for him. We all make it to tree line. In trees it is quiet. Very quiet. Orcs come into forest a little but not as far as us. Big and Tall asks us about healer for Dwarf. With Abe’s help, me patch up dwarf. Mittens give him healing potion. He slowly breathe fine but still pass out. Gloves asks Big and Tall what is matter with woods. Fog everywhere. And there are shapes in fog. Big and Tall tell us we gonna find out what matter with woods. Then creatures me no see attack Abe, Gloves, and Ty. Then rider on horse came by and hurt Abe. Gloves attacks rider and it disappears and something falls to the ground. Abe then sees something and runs to it and yells so I follow him. I hit something and hear the hiss of my white silver against the creature skin. While I fight creature, Iggy touch thing from rider and now he is on big horse. Gloves come up and kill creature. Iggy still on horse then he not and now all creepy creatures gone. And no blood either.
Big and Tall say it take a day to get to his home. We follow him. Dwarf finally wake up. Iggy and me set up camp at some point. After rest, we pack up and follow Big and Tall. There is clearing ahead. I smell the nasty stink of Tempest. There is blue light. We agree it is Tempest. Because this only surveillance mission, we turn around to go back when we hear voices in different language. We walk away quiet but the big boom and Big and Tall falls to the ground. I check on him- he is unconscious but his boo boo is healing. Iggy disappears for a little bit then shows up again. He told us he saw 4 peoples with blue crystal weapon things and armor with blue crystals. These blue crystals seem to be a big deal. He saw more scary things in the clearing. Iggy says we need to go. I gave Big and Tall potion but it no work- Abe says cause trolls need necromancy to heal. Voices are getting closer. I jump on Sirius. We head into woods. We had to leave Big and Tall there. We run for hours. We is lost. I try to find out tracks. I no find them but I get us to familiar place. Iggy climbs up tree and comes back and tells us to go one way since the sun is setting another way. Iggy and I set up camp. Gloves assigns watches: Abe and Gloves first, Iggy and Dwarf next, then me and Ty. I sleep until watch time at 13th hour. Some hours pass and I smell nasty smell again. Smell like Tempest. I wake everyone and we run. We run until we break treeline. Too much running and not enough blood this mission.

Tae's Report

Bhí muid i bhforaois. Ceo dubh i ngach áit. Bhí sé ag mothú. Bhí figiúirí Shadowy le feiceáil. Ní fhéadfadh ach iad siúd a bhfuil airgead bán iad a ghortú. Rinne mé iarracht fanacht as an mbealach. Bhí an lairg ar chapall cogaidh undead ag pointe amháin. Coinneoimid ag siúl. Go tobann is féidir solas gorm a fheiceáil trí na crainn. Úsáidtear an focal Teocht. Níl sé cinnte cad a chiallaíonn sé. Deir Goblin go míneoidh sí. De réir mar a fhágann muid, glacann muid guthanna. Déanann mo chluaisín iarracht aistriú a dhéanamh, go crua ar dtús. Cluinnim na focail atá ag teacht go luath. Laghdaíonn easpairtí lizard, cuireann sé síos ar airm le criostail gorm. Dúnadh na n-arm amach tine gorm. Ritheann muid go dtí go bhfuil sé ina chiúin. Le linn féachaint ar an goblin beag a deir sí boladh an t-am. Fágfaimid i gceannas ar Kythros.

Translation:
We were in a forest. Black fog everywhere. It was..moving. Shadowy figures appeared. Only those with white silver could hurt them. I tried to stay out of the way. Lizard was on an undead war horse at one point. We keep walking. Suddenly a blue light can be seen through the trees. The word Tempest is used. Not sure what it means. Goblin says she will explain. As we leave we hear voices. My earring tries to translate, hard at first. I hear the words the coming is soon. Lizard dissappears, comes back describes weapons with blue crystals. The weapons shot out blue fire. We run until its silent. During watch the small goblin says she smells Tempest. We leave heading for Kythros.

Tae's Report

Bhuail le mo fhoireann nua. Táimid ag gabháil le troll go dtí a bhaile. Deir sé gur scriosadh é, ní mór dúinn seiceáil a dhéanamh. Tá an fhoireann suimiúil. Cat, lizard, dwarf, orc, agus goblin beag. Tagann an cat, Mittens, dom nuair a labhraíonn sé. An gcreideann sé go bhfuil mé bodhar? Glacamar an troll ar bhád. Taistealimid ach amháin ar an oíche. Ná bí ag iarraidh ar dhaoine an troll a fheiceáil. Tig liom an carr a thiomáint. Táimid ag siúl nuair a deir orc ba chóir dúinn stop a chur. Seacht bhfigiúr ag teacht i dtreo dúinn. Labhraíonn siad i dteanga nach féidir liom a thuiscint. Ag iarraidh faoin troll. Ní maith leo é. Is cosúil go gcoinneódh Orc rudaí faoi smacht ach tá ceann de na figiúirí ag ionsaí an troll. Dwarf agus I ionsaí. Táimid ag troid go léir. Margaimid iad. Ritheamar. Campáil anois. Ní dóchasach nach bhfaighidh siad linn.

Translation:
Met with my new team. We are to escort a troll to his home. He says it was destroyed, we must go check. The team is interesting. A cat, a lizard, a dwarf, an orc, and a small goblin. The cat, Mittens, yells at me when he talks. Does he think I’m deaf? We take the troll on a boat. We travel only at night. Don’t want people to see the troll. I get to drive the wagon. We are walking when orc says we should stop. Seven figures coming toward us. They speak in a language I can’t understand. Asking about the troll. They don’t like him. Orc seems to keep things under control but one of the figures attacks the troll. Dwarf and I attack. We all fight. We kill them. We run. Camping now. Hopefully they don’t find us.

Letter To Valerie
Dobby

Lady leader,
I want to tell you my story. I tell you this so you know why I am Dobby. I born in Kalinesh Empire. My mother and father slaves there. I grow up only knowing evil and fighting. I in first blood pit fight when I 5. I fight because Mama too sick. I barely win. After first fight, my master make me fight more and more. I have to win or Mama get hurt. But only way I make myself fight is I make myself like it. I win a lot because I have to see blood. Blood means I survive. One day people come to village and set goblin slaves free. Mama and Papa already dead so I alone. In middle of freedom, man help me. He tell me to run and not look bac. He give me weapon. He give me sword. I no know how special sword is at time. I leave and fend for myself. In forest, I meet Sirius. He see me covered in blood. I thought he would kill me but he help blood covered Dobby. Sirius led me to river and I drink. But I no sleep good. I have bad dreams. I need blood. So I try to hunt. Sirius help me too. We catch animal and eat and I play with blood. I no eat blood. I no drink blood. Blood helps bad dreams go away. Please no think I am bad.
Thank you,
Dobby

I asked him what stop me from spilling his blood. I wanted to feel blood on my fingers. Pretty lady tell me inside my head to kill Kalinesh, and I put blade in neck. But man no die.
