Teak's Journal: Entry (19)

I’m sick and tired of this. Sick and tired of it.


Note to self: Being blind still sucks.

Dr. Zee: Medical log 00002

Patient 004: Danseroux Ainhoa Lien Mireille Iraina Sancia Elixabeta Azelise da Ysanne received treatment in the form of a cure extract for battlefield wounds.

Patients xxx: These unfortunate souls proved to be incurable; oddly enough they were already dead. I had heard of such a thing, but not yet witnessed it for myself. Had I the time I would have liked the opportunity for closer examination. Sadly, my other, living patients, required my attention. I was forced to euthanize these “undead” in order to move forward. There seems to be others though so there is still hope. As father always said, “you only fail once you’ve given up.”

Note: I discovered a naturally occurring poison, by the name of Black Frost, and was able to harvest some for future studies. The others seemed excited about the discovery as well; good to be traveling with enlightened minds.

Roux: A Multitude of Acquaintances

Our time accommodating to the atmosphere has thus far been relatively uneventful, although we have met two intriguing individuals in the past several days.

One was a mysterious man, very pale, who had been haunting our camp of late. Upon investigation, Tallus-tzu and I spoke with him. He seemed to have some business with Tallus-tzu, and so he invited him to meet. As he did not request Tallus-tzu to come alone, I thought it unwise to have him wander off on his own. Therefore, we all accompanied him. It seems that this man, Xavian-tzu, is in fact the father spoken of in Tallus-tzu’s journal! He seems like a decent individual, if somewhat odd. But I suppose that may be expected in one of his…persuasion.

The other individual whom we have encountered is a man by the name of Dr. Zee. He is most diligent at his trade and seems like amiable company. Fortunately so, for it seems that he is an acquaintance of Ameiko-ren’s and is to accompany us from here on.

I will be eager to be on the road again, though this waiting has provided an excellent opportunity for my further studies.

Dr. Zee: Medical log 00001

Patient 002 Nate received treatment for dysentery. Progress still being monitored, but outcome looks hopeful. Recovery expected soon. Then payment will be discussed.

Patient 003 Tallus Lynch Witchem received Fire Ward Gel for sun protection. Remember to bill later.

Patient 001Teak Haslet Calandra Honeysuckle August Annwyl Sage Rowan Antaeus Tarragon received no treatment, but is an angelic wild beauty worthy of note.

Patient 004 Danseroux Ainhoa Lien Mireille Iraina Sancia Elixabeta Azelise da Ysanne recieved no treatment but appears to have unusually high intelligence for a child of her age. Which would warrant investigation and possibly non-invasive experimentation.

Summary: It should prove lucrative traveling with these individuals. I anticipate a increase in sales.


Note to self: look in to poisons more. They are really handy.

Sophie: Go big or go home and get something bigger.

I’ll tell you how it went down. Nate and I convinced a village we could solve all their problems by fighting their dragon. Naturally, they understood we were just that awesome. But, there was one that didn’t believe. So he died a fiery death; Cortez also knocked over his rocks. There was some tragic collateral damage however, he somehow managed to turn Teak into a giant bat. It was moderately alarming, but she got better. Then we returned to camp to reassure them we are still the best dragon hunters this side of Varisia. Now I will train them for war! The machines will come forth and crush our enemies, for I am a mighty, mighty, fortress!

Roux: An Imminence of Dragons

We have freed the village of Tanuuq’s deceitful influence, though it was a most challenging struggle. Tallus-tzu was greatly injured during the fight. More than ever I was grateful for Suishen-tzu’s aid, as the terrain was most icy and it would have been difficult to maintain my footing had I been obliged to stay on the ground.

We discovered a number of shattered shells in Tanuuaq’s hideaway—eggshells. The sort of eggshells laid by a white dragon. It seems that he, in an attempt to secure more influence for himself perhaps, destroyed the dragon’s eggs himself and thus evoked its anger. Also in his possession was an unholy symbol of Sithhud, the demi-demon lord. Clearly, he was not serving any decent gods in his aims. I would be curious to know what aim, precisely, he was attempting to accomplish, but as we were obliged to do away with him, it seems that such answers will not be forthcoming in the immediate future.

We also discovered a staff of journeys, which should be most useful in our future endeavors.

Unfortunately, it seems that an explanation to the dragon and an assurance we have punished the one responsible for the loss of their offspring is unlikely to suffice, according to Sonavut-rhes. Still, it is a thing worth attempting.


Note to self: make peace with whatever it is you mean to do because you might die soon. On a positive note, I might be able to say I killed a dragon.

Roux: An Escalation of Escapades

We have entered a town that we should not have.

It is being threatened by a dragon, and their shaman appears to be up to no good, but that is not our affair and we should not be here. Outsiders are not permitted.

Ulf-tzu believed that it would be all right, as he had done the village a favor in the past, but it seems that this does not grant us freedom of the city. The shaman wished to sacrifice one of us to make up for the slight, like a barbarian. I wished to talk him into simply letting us leave and continue on our way, with the promise never to return, but other promises were made, and now we’re expected to deal with the dragon. At least their elder, Sonavut-rhes, does not seem to mind our presence.

It’s not as though the encounters we have had here are uninteresting, but I fear they are a distraction from our objective. I suppose we must make the most of them, and learn what we can.

This shaman, an individual by the name of Tanuaq-tzu, called a demon into a man by the name of Naquun-tzu. We were thus obliged to free him from his possession. I am not certain what Tanuaq-tzu expects to gain by this activity, but I suppose we must continue to investigate.
