Aeric's Journal #7

Aeric Lebeda – Journal Entry 7

28th of Erastus

The past few days have been rather eventful. We have met an interesting individual named Blaidd (pronounced Blaith) of House Medvyed. He seems like a rugged sort if a tad too emotional about a dead wolf. He is very intent and persistent from what we have seen so far. It took considerable effort to convince him that we needed to head back and get his wounds tended by a healer, his idea of breaking arrows off while very dramatic, is also very impractical as it left the arrow head in the body. I’m quite sure that if I’m hurt I don’t want him treating me!

We head to the Temple of the Elk looking for Father Jhod and we have received word that Jonah will also be there. Apparently he as awoken from his coma, praise Erastil! We arrive at the temple to find that Father Jhod seems much overjoyed with the work ahead of him. He treats Blaidd and we prepare to head back out to follow the trail of the poacher/bandits.

Blaidd seems too intent, perhaps his wolf Kasmir meant more to him than I understand. However I feel obliged not to rush into things out here, or to put the horses at risk. Blaidd seems almost uncaring about the horses well being which is very peculiar for one who seems to practice druidic magic. Blaidd continues to follow the tracks well past last light, and Jonah follows him. Some sort of creature, which disguised itself as a rock, ambushes them. The creature almost kills poor Jonah, but fortunately Blaidd manages to kill the beast and heal Jonah.

In the distance we start to see a structure, which the poacher/bandits seem to have been heading towards. The structure is on a hillside and has a good view of the surrounding countryside. It will be difficult to sneak up on it. Blaidd convinces the rest of us to move in closer during the night so we can observe during the day. This is a considerable risk as it effectively puts us in harms way with no easy method of escape. If the bandits prove tougher than we anticipate we could be at a serious disadvantage.
