    Lets see if I can actually pull this off this time without my connection fucking me.

    1st Granite: Rith Sividsgun. Am embarking on expediton to find my brother, Kith. Little brother disappeared two years ago--the only trace of him found is amulet bought from trader, with Kith's journal. Fear he may be dead. I will find him, or avenge him. Taking several loaves of bread grandmother baked a few years ago.

    2nd Granite: No dwarves agreed to come with me, except for Bearlan, my oldest friend, and a devout cleric. Have assembled party of humans to accompany us--one wizard. A thief, possibly half-elven. Must keep eye on thief. A warrior, stout, and with a most dwarfenly beard. A woman, seemingly a fighter of some kind.

    They agreed to accompany Bearlan and myself for one half of all treasue we find. Bah, I care not for treasure. I seek only me kin.

    3d Granite: We depart today. Mother made me take the chainmail scarf she knitted. Bathon Jvln bid me goodbye. We have been courting for several moons. I am reasonably sure she is female. I will make her(?) my bride when I return.

    5th Granite: Companions seem disturbed by the amulet I retrieved with my brothers journal. May have something to do with injury one sustained holding it.

    To show not all dwarven amulets are such atrocities, have begun carving amulet.

    6th Granite: Attacked by human bandits today. Slew two with crossbow, one blow from ax severed three bandits heads. Human companions took care of the other two.

    7th Granite: nothing of interest happened today, other than finishing my amulet.
    It is crafted of granite. It menaces with spikes of wood. It depicts an image of a tree. It depicts an image of a dwarf. The dwarf is attacking the tree.

    12th Granite. Attacked by more human bandits, while companions slept, interrupting my dinner. Slew three with burning log, three fell to my grandmothers bread. Rest fled in terror. Finished meal.

    13th Granite: Human Companions complained of noise previous night. Showed companions bandits bodies. Companions stopped complaining. Bearlen placed a blessing upon the amulet I made, and now wears it. It shines when in the presence of trees.

    14th Granite: Thief attempted to pick Bearlans pocket. Bearlen only broke two fingers, and he healed him afterwards...why is the part elven bastard still so angry?
    Have begun carving amulet.

    22nd Granite: First stop along journey. Human settlement, small town. Traded latest amulet for some new supplies.
    Gave human female a sip of Dwarven Ale. She passed out for a few minutes, awoke, began acting oddly, and began removing clothing. Disturbing creatures, humans.

    25th Granite: Left human settlement for forge onward.
    Found thief writing something in my journal. Only broke two fingers this time. Something about sex with a mountain troll. What a disgusting concept. Thief is obviously part elf.

    27th Granite: Attacked by kobold bandits. At least not humans this time. Annoying little buggers. One tried to pull my helmet off. Bit his hand off. Needed salt. One attempted to steal a loaf of bread. Couldn't even lift it--broke his spine.

    2nd Slate: Began carving amulet to relieve boredom. Almost wish something would attack again. Only conversaton is with Bearlan--rest want to talk about such trivial things. Thief and human warrior argueing about something. Bearlan has begun carving something as well.

    6th Slate: Finished amulet.
    It is carved of granite. It menaces with spikes of bone. It depicts an image of a dwarf. It depicts and image of a mountain troll. The dwarf is doing an unspeakable act to the troll.
    Bearlan found it hilarious. Rest of companions seemed put off by it.

    18th Slate: Damned thief fell asleep on guard duty. Lost most provisions to kobolds. Found one kobold dead, trying to steal Bearlans amulet. Tripped and impaled self on spike.

    25th Slate: Companions very hungry. Attacked by mountain trolls. Bearlen smote one with righteous dwarven spirit, and his blessed hammer. I hacked ones leg from it, and finished it by introducing its throat to my axe. Axe was stuck, so used body to beat last one to death.

    Bearlan and I ate well tonight. Companions still hungry.

    1st Felsite: Came upon second stop for quest. Dwarven mine, Febducim. Kith made mention of this place in his journal.
    No one would answer me when questioned about him. One dwarf, heavily armored, and bearing two swords, looked at me strangely when he heard my brothers name.

    3th Felsite: I spoke with the strange dwarf today. He did not want to speak at first, until I puersuaded him. Bearlan will heal him later today from puersuasion.

    He told me of the path my brother took, on his trip to Koganusan. He warned me to stay away, or I would burn, as all others did. It is a shame to see such a once fine dwarf, with a mind so broken.

    Will depart shortly.

    5th Felsite: Bearlan healed the strange dwarf, despite his refusal to remove either the plate or chainmail to allow a better healing. We depart today. Hard travel will have us at koganusan in three months.

    I will find my brother.

    7th Felsite: Wizard claims he feels evil in the woods around us. This may have something to do with the body we found cocooned in spidesilk, hanging from a tree today.
    Have begun working on new amulet. Bearlen seems to be as well.

    9th Felsite: Giant spiders attacked today. Human wizard was useful for once--turned two spiders into petunias, third into a kitten.
    Slew two with axe. One with crossbow. Squished one with boot. Squished one when tripped, and fell on ass.
    Rest fled wizards fire.
    One bit Bearlan. He seems fine.

    Bearlan presented me with a bracelet today.
    It is carved is rock lobster shell. It is decorated with turtle shell. It menaces with spikes of turtle shell. It depicts an image of the dwarf. The dwarf is fishing.

    16th Felsite: Bearlan is very ill, but refuses to stop, or seek healer. He is a strange color. I am worried. Human companions fighting again. Thief stole something from the woman. Maiden something.

    20th Felsite: Bearlan collapsed today. Could not walk. Nearing next stop on journey--will seek healer there.

    1st Hematite: Reached Kosothlular today. Humans call it Sentil. Human and dwarven community.
    Found a healer for Bearlan quickly. Healer says Bearlan will take a month to heal from the spider venom, perhaps longer. As loathe as I am to postpone my search, I cannot abandon my friend.

    While he heals, I will seek out knowledge of Koganusan, and my brother.

    The Journal of Rith will continue once Bearlan has healed, and I have slept. Part two coming soon.

    The Journal of Rith: Part two

    11th Hematite:Bearlan is still unconcious. Healer says it is a healing coma. Not sure if healer is right.

    I have learned little of the object of my foolish brothers quest...but what little I have learned strikes a deep chord of trouble within me. The few tales I have managed to puersuade out of fellow dwarves are...disturbing. and they always look so....fearful, as if merely speaking of the place brings its curse upon them.

    15th Hematite: No sign of improvement for Bearlan.

    16th Hematite: The more I learn of Koganusan, the more troubled I am. What little rumor I had heard before said only it was an old, abandoned fortress.
    Why did none of the rumors even mention the sheer....evil of the place? How many lives were lost?

    18th Hematite: Possible sign of health in Bearlan. He is no longer green. Hand twitching slightly.

    3rd Malachite: Bearlan seems much his old self. Has begun carving something.
    Had to break Thief out of jail. Fool tried to pickpocket a noblewoman.
    Humans had long, drawnout plan to get thief out. Showed humans dwarven plan--smash wall, take thief.

    4th Malachite: Left last night. Before we freed thief, I puersuaded dwarf in tavern. Dwarf said Koganusan was two months march away.

    Bearlan caused two to sink into the earth, as quicksand, still alive.
    Used burning body of bash one into tree. Grabbed still living one and bashed another. Used goblins to slaughter rest of goblins. Rather fun.

    5th Galena: Elephants sighted again. Vicious beasts. Have begun carving amulet.

    6th Galena: Area surrounding Koganusan is strange. Trees stunted and twisted, discoloured. Earth full of rock, rusted metal scattered everywhere.

    Elephants watch from river bank.

    7th Galena: Elephants attacked today. Three.
    My human companions were routed. The wizard squished beneath elephant foot. Thief fled at first sign of them. Man carried woman away. woman cursed a lot.

    Only Bearlan and I stayed. Cleric glowed with holy light, and earth beneath one began to glow, a swirling pit of lava sucking the creature down to a painful death.
    Second grabbed me with trunk. Bashed with toast.Buried axe in seconds eye. Hacked out brain.

    Fell to earth, to see final swallowing Bearlan whole. Vision grew red. Hazy. Do not remember much. Awoke with elephant missing one foot, stumbling. Elephant trumpeted in pain. Bearlan burst from stomach, axe in hand, covered in elephant gut.

    Koganusan will not dissuade us this easily.

    14th Galena: Reached front door of Koganusan today. will enter tomorrow.
    Door appears curously scorched. Burn marks cover rock face under lichen growth. Rock smooth, as thought melted, an then hardened.
    I wonder what caused this.
    Tales of Koganusan trouble my dreams. Vivid, glowing rivers...

    I heard the sadistic giggling of the young dwarven girl, and I ran. I ran for my very life, for a terrible, flickering glow accompanied it, a demons laughter answering.

    I ran to the waters edge, and hurled myself in, curling as the rough waters spun me and dashed me against bed and sides. It was a rough, dangerous journey, that, pitch dark, feeling fish, and other, less wholesome thigns slithering and brushing against me in the streams icy waters. My lungs burned, and I thought, surely, that I must perish...dieing by water, instead of fire.

    Until I was spat out, light of the sun blinding me...I washed up down stream, ashore. I was amazed I lost nothing in the journey, my possessions fimrly belted to my form...I passed out along the rives edge.

    I awoke to the sound of breathing. Elephants. A herd...I stood, glaring about me, unarmed.
    They stared at me.
    My eyes met theirs
    Theirs broke first.

    The dwarf set the pen down, closing the leatherbound journal carefully, before standing. He had a curious scar upon his throat...in the shape of a hand, seemingly burned there.
    He bore no weapons save one. An axe, belted at his hip.
