I'm unsure of how accurate these notes may be, but I can only hope to catch my journal up to recent events. I had a bit to drink the other day so things have gotten very fuzzy for me. I told myself I wasn't going to do that again, but I didn't want to be rude. Anyways I'm getting ahead of myself lets go back to the start.
So I went to The Adventure's Boot to follow up on a notice a saw posted. I wanted to finally begin my life as a heroine of justice. The first step to that of course would be heading out as an adventurer. When I arrived I saw the whole group who was heading out, and decided to ask them if I could join.
The first one who caught my eye was small halfling with spiked scale male, and a large gray wolf. He introduced himself as Bodi, and I did my best to be polite. Next to him sat dwarf smoking pipe weed. He had black hair with a bear to match. The man introduced himself as Gleipnir. Next on the list was a short woman by the name of Ida.
She had long blonde hair, blue eyes, and was rather petite and beautiful. She rather reminded me of an elf in that regard. She also carried a warhammer to accompany her splint mail.. The final member was another halfling named Aodi. He was the brother to Bodi, and was very exotic looks. His eyes were so beautiful I lost myself for a few moments after meeting him.
The group of people all proved to be really nice. Miss Ida took me out to buy some winter clothing for our journey to Sarek. The cloak she bought me fit rather snuggly, and ended up probably saving my life. I'll have to thank her properly when I get the chance. Maybe she'd enjoy a letter, or perhaps a song? I'll have to think about it. She wasn't the only person to give me something though.
Mr. Gleipnir gave me a ring on our way out as well. Though a few people made a joke about it being a wedding ring. Maybe I should give it back to him. I'm not really at a marrying age yet. Elves aren't supposed to marry till they near 100. I'm not sure exactly how old I am, but I'm sure I'm not exactly close to that yet.
After that we talked for awhile about being attacked by lightning bolts. I didn't really get to hear the full story about that however as we made our way out via giant skull. I really hope I am remembering that part incorrectly due to the alcohol, but for now lets just gloss over it. After that we arrived in the frozen land.
There was more snow than I had ever seen, and none of the words people told me could have prepared me for the cold. The weather was terrible as well, but according to the group it was apparently good weather for the area. I'm not sure how much I really want to go back to that place! However I will say it was also quite beautiful in its own way.
The animals around the wasteland were really hungry as well. Birds tried to steal our foodstuffs, but luckily Cure managed to hold them off. Then that night cure spotted a weasel trying to run off with some more food. I shot it down with mom's bow, but at the time I thought it was a monster. It turned out just to be a weasel however, and I was pretty disappointed.
The next day on the way to the Shrine we found several doggy tracks. Eventually we arrived at Ida's shrine where she prayed for awhile. After she was done Gleipnir prayed too, but he couldn't get a vision apparently. I think it's because he gave me that ring. He's probably married to a god, or something. Now she's mad cause he gifted me a ring.
I think they said the goddess was named something like Heiss, or Hess maybe? She's supposed to be about life, death, and the natural order if I remember right. Anyways on our way to the next shrine Frey started making noises. Bodi barked back at the doggy, and then we found a bear hiding in a cave. This bear was a big monstrous creature.
It was so big in fact that I thought it was a monster, but that turned out not to be the case. However I still made a song about the encounter. After we took care of Bodi got into a brawl with some wolves because he didn't want to give them our bear meat. I'm not sure what that was all about, but I got upset because Ida refused to go help save him.
Luckily he was a tough guy, and managed to beat back all the wolves. After that we took our rest for the night, and then headed for the city of Volkenheim on the next morning. Once there I helped Aodi give away the bear meat to the villagers. I was glad because they were very nice about the gift. We ended up getting invited to a party.
I think Gleipnir might have mentioned something about harpies living the land as well, but to be honest I don't remember anything past that point very well. I was given some sort of sweet drink at the party was alcohol in it. I think it also had honey, but I'm not really sure. I wasn't really able to hold the liquor however, and I'm pretty sure I ended up sobbing down a storm again.
The next morning I woke up some place completely different, and was pretty confused. I remember heading to another shrine after that, and dropping off the bear claws. I think some of the others made an offering as well, but it's all a blur. I really need to make sure to avoid drinking again in the future. After that however we luckily went home so I could rest.
