    22nd of Solace, 9:41 Dragon Ha! Been in Denerim ten minutes and already I have a job! Seems some local vendors craftsmen have had their wares go walkabout -- food, lumber, crap weaponry, that sort of thing. The culprits are most likely some trouble- …

    5th of August, 9:41 Dragon In exchange for us not introducing their guts to steel and open air, those two ambushers agreed to bring us to their base and their leader. They took us to this great big chasm outside the city, where a dagger-faced elf mage …

    19th of August, 9:41 Dragon Returning our share of the stolen goods went better than I expected. No one was thrilled to be getting back so little of what they’d lost, of course, but everyone handled it with a decent amount of grace, and we at …

    2nd of Kingsway, 9:41 Dragon Securing our campsite after the blight wolf attack led to us discovering two important bits of information about the wrecked farm. One, someone had scrawled “Mythal” on the wall of the farmhouse in blood. According to my …

    16th of Kingsway, 9:41 Dragon You know, the thought occurs that, if anyone ever bothers to read this again (myself included), using people’s real names would probably be more useful than nicknaming everyone with snarky placeholders. Our merry band …

    30th of Kingsway, 9:41 Dragon Our path to the ruins was taking us deeper into the forest when we damn near fell over the edge of a 100-foot deep crevasse with a raging river at the bottom of it. Do those normally show up in forests? The only way …

    28th of Harvestmere, 9:41 Dragon With the Dalish scout guiding us, we made good time through the forest heading back to the village. Vintiver, that’s what it’s called! Maker above, not even forty yet and I’m going senile already. Anyway, there was a …

    11th of Firstfall, 9:41 Dragon Well, it took him long enough, but Azrael eventually got his pointy magic backside back to Aneth Ara and gave us some silver for our troubles. He was less than thrilled that the demon was no longer inhabiting its chain …

    25th of Firstfall, 9:41 Dragon Well, this has been an exciting trip so far. We met Alenka and started making our way north, but were barely out of sight of Lothering when we heard an almighty “BANG” come from somewhere up ahead of us. We arrived just …

    9th of Haring, 9:41 Dragon First, a quick apology: it’s been a long day and I’m tired, so some of this may be a bit muddled. After taking our rest, we elected to keep traveling through the night, since we were on a pretty tight schedule and …

    6th of Wintermarch, 9:42 Dragon Our trip back to Lothering was quiet. I chatted a bit with Tom Sharpeyes -- he’s apparently in much the same boat I am, looking for adventure and silver in any place that isn’t Ostwick -- and briefly talked with the …

  • Sam Holbig 12a

    20th of Wintermarch, 9:42 Dragon As it turns out, stopping in Ostagar was more or less a waste of time, as everyone who was worth talking to had apparently decided to just forget about the whole bandit thing for a while and head to the next town over …

  • Sam Holbig 13

    3rd of Guardian, 9:42 Dragon We stepped outside the tent, and naturally, everything was chaos. Barbarians were charging all over the place, attacking festival-goers and civilians -- and more worryingly, it seemed some of the villagers had turned the …

    17th of Guardian, 9:42 Dragon Ah! It seems I misunderstood what that old woman was saying about the Amber Rage. It doesn’t take a handful of days for the disease to set in, it takes a handful of hours. Luckily she had a stock of potions around …

    2nd of Drakonis, 9:42 Dragon After settling our affairs in the wildling village and dragging Enna out of her drunken stupor at long last, we finally made our way to our campsite -- at least, I presume that’s why the raven promptly keeled over dead when …

    13th of Cloudreach, 9:42 Dragon The trip back from the ferry-town was mostly uneventful, but as soon as we came in sight of our destination, our way was barred by men-at-arms carrying the banner of the village’s local knight. When we explained our …

    13th of Drakonis, 9:42 Dragon After what seemed like an eternity of singing to myself, fighting off the wilderness around me, and going quietly mad -- I distinctly remember talking to a squirrel at one point -- I finally spotted the rest of my party …

  • Sam Holbig 18

    27th of Cloudreach, 9:42 Dragon Of all the places I’d have expected my old life from Ostwick to catch up with me, this has to be the last of them. The situation with the knight, the mayor, and the blacksmith is a tortured mess of small-town politics …

  • Sam Holbig 19

    8th of Justinian, 9:42 Dragon Kingsley was waiting for us in the burning central tent, seemingly without a care in the world, and with my son locked in what seemed to be a dragonbone cage of all things. Legnar had some sort of shield with him when he …

  • Sam Holbig 20

    22nd of Justinian, 9:42 Dragon Finally had a chance to chat with my son a bit on the way back to Lothering. It seems the lad’s name is Morgan, and he wants to become a fighting man like his da. We caught up with Elly in Lothering, and made ourselves …

  • Sam Holbig 21

    6th of Solace, 9:42 Dragon Made it to the next town. The sister went to go take care of her business in the chantry, and about half the group accompanied her while the other half hung around outside to take care of various business. Me, I found a …

  • Sam Holbig 22

    3rd of August, 9:42 Dragon We made it to the next town along in Sister Stone’s Maker tour, and most of us decided to hole up in the chantry while Alalen and Legnar went out hunting. This chantry had a couple of Templar in it, which we figured would …

  • Sam Holbig 23

    17th of August, 9:42 Dragon We had a couple of pleasant surprises waiting for us back in Aneth Ara. First off, Enna’s back! It seems whatever business caused her to run off has been concluded, so she’s ready to rejoin our merry band. We’ve had a few …

  • Sam Holbig 25

    30th of Harvestmere, 9:42 Dragon We followed the dwarf merchant (named Kenadrin, apparently) back to his caravan, with Enna running off somewhere again along the way. During the trip, we got a bit of his story, and “persuaded” the leader of the …

    13th of Firstfall, 9:42 Dragon Obviously we didn’t want the bartender’s generosity to go to waste, so the rest of the group went to go buy some clothes while I stood around outside and tried to look imposing. (I think Sona may have actually run back …

  • Sam Holbig 27

    27th of Firstfall, 9:42 Dragon Okay, so now that I’ve had a chance to get the story at a time when we WEREN’T chasing down a mysterious robed figure, it seems I was a bit mistaken regarding the situation with Kennadrin and the lyrium. Apparently the …

    11th of Haring, 9:42 Dragon Silliness with everyone encountering some angry specter of their past aside, ultimately Legnar was able to get his hands on one of those invitations we were looking for. (I may be a bit too deep in my cups at the moment, …

    8th of Wintermarch, 9:43 Dragon Despite that close call in the old mine, we made it back to Val Royeaux in plenty of time for the party. However, apparently Enna and Sona were feeling under the weather, or had some other business to deal with, or just …

  • Sam Holbig 30

    22nd of Wintermarch, 9:43 Dragon For the record, I consider this all to be Legnar’s fault. We told our hostess, Lady Synova, that we were willing to take her up on her offer of work. Pushy diva that she is, she wanted us to drop everything we were …

  • Sam Holbig 31

    5th of Guardian, 9:43 Dragon Looking around the doorframe into the cell block where all the commotion was taking place, we saw that Sona had indeed staged a break-in to try and rescue us. Granted, she’d broken into one of the cells and there was still …

  • Sam Holbig 32

    5th of Drakonis, Dragon 9:43 Since stealth had failed, we found ourselves drawn into combat with the guards defending the dungeon’s evidence room. Maker above, where did Val Royeaux FIND these people? Each one could dodge like an acrobat, hit like an …

  • Sam Holbig 33

    19th of Drakonis, Dragon 9:43 On our way out of the dungeon and the city, I finally managed to get something resembling a straight answer out of that apostate mage (fella named Jeffry, by the by). Seems he used to be the scion of some Val Royeaux noble …

  • Sam Holbig 34

    16th of Cloudreach, Dragon 9:43 We took our leave of that pleasant farmer couple and made our way towards Dro's village, where apparently there was some business that needed doing. I reminded everyone that we had somewhere we needed to be soonish, but …

  • Sam Holbig 35

    30th of Cloudreach, Dragon 9:43 We ran into no more excitement on our journey and soon found ourselves on the outskirts of the ruined city, where the elf guides took their leave of us. It was a quick and relatively straightforward stroll to the temple, …

  • Sam Holbig 36

    14th of Bloomingtide, Dragon 9:43 The now ex-warleader of the Tal Vashoth village wasted little time gathering his effects and making his way out of town, and we were right behind him, keeping close by as his route took him out of town and, …

  • Sam Holbig 37

    11th of Justinian, Dragon 9:43 Registration for the tourney went pretty smoothly. First, there’s to be a series of four-man elimination matches to whittle the contestant pool down to sixty-four fighters, after which a single-elimination bracket will …

  • Sam Holbig 38

    25th of Justinian, Dragon 9:43 We were on our way back to get some rest (or maybe catch some traveling fire-eaters that I hear put on a good show) when we heard a commotion back at the arena. It seems some dwarves arrived too late to qualify, but …

  • Sam Holbig 39

    9th of Solace, Dragon 9:43 It turns out that blast we heard was one of the local inns exploding and catching fire, which as far as I know is not something they’re generally supposed to do. Again, being the heroic types we are, all of us present moved …

  • Sam Holbig 40

    20th of August, Dragon 9:43 Dro and I woke up Daryel and Legnar (we decided none of us wanted to deal with a grumpy Sana) and informed them of the situation. Daryel, Legnar, and Dro decided to go investigate on the docks; I was ready to come too, but …

  • Sam Holbig 41

    3rd of Kingsway, Dragon 9:43 Daryel, Legnar, Dro, and Daryel’s new friend -- a human archer whose name I haven’t caught yet -- ran off to go sort out this cultist business, while Sana and I stuck around for the next tournament round. That fancy-pants …
