Zipp’s Log Entry #1
So it begins. After returning to Xelona from my last robbery I was quickly contacted by an individual with whom I had not met before. Shadok Trin is an agent of the city who specializes in finding adventurers for individuals with large pockets. I was gathered alongside a lizardman named Szinnit. Szinnit comes from a farm land and what he’s doing in this town is currently unknown to myself. Perhaps he is simply desiring more gold or pursuing a dream or maybe he’s just looking for new plants for his farm… I’m not sure but I do hope he opens up more to the group. Travok is a dwarf who seems to be angry almost all the time. He spends his spare time with dice and can be found gambling at rather obnoxious times of the day. He also seems to be very quiet around me. It might have something to do with the fact that I used an elf disguise to meet with them all at first… Surely they can’t blame me for being safe. No matter his attitude he certainly seems like a tough son of a bitch. I don’t think I’ve seen his armor pierced once. Finally there is Mistrel… At least that’s what she says her name is. She seems to distrust the group the most. While the other adventurers seem to have some sort of specialty or focus Mistrel has yet to reveal any particular abilities at this point. I have a feeling there’s some magic in there but why she’s hiding it is unknown. I could also be completely wrong and maybe she’s just a simple archer.
After we embarked on the airship we quickly made our way to the Drummond Fragment which is home to House Wexin a proud ally to my own House Quade. Mistrel appears to follow house Wexin as a half-elf but I’m not sure how well known she is. After landing we headed south towards Ekalaka. During our journey we were attacked by a small group of some sort of fish folk. They were easily dispatched and we made our way all the way to Ekalaka. There we aided the small town with a slight undead problem. The town seemed thankful but it also not too concerned about the idea of undead. We moved further south to the entrance of the city of Orphiem where we were tasked with returning a mage’s old tome. After braving a storm of raining fire we found shelter in the ancient stone city. Before we began our search for the tomb we ran across more undead. We have since rested. I only pray that Amaris watches over us. There are secrets deep in this city that I’m not sure we are ready to unleash.
