Day 1/6:25, CL1, Outpost

Gods, why did I agree to travel out here with that caravan? This place is a hellhole, and even more hellish outside the walls. Panthers, tigers, orc war parties, no wonder Morivant barely gets news from the fringes.

The "mayor" of the settlement tells me that they're harassed by the so-called "Southering" bandit group, who rob people who (are stupid enough to) come to this dump. They're holed up deep in their cave Stronghold outside the walls, and have some guards keeping watch in a separate small burrow.

I've agreed to do something about the situation—I'm in desperate need of coin, that I might buy supplies to survive a trip back to civilization—but the "mayor" seems to think that getting rid of their lookouts will somehow magically solve the entire problem. Idiot.

I also paid a visit to the local bounty office; I mentioned the local fauna earlier, and it seems they're not just a menace to travellers and caravans coming in but also to the Outpost itself. First three problems on the list were a wolf, a bear, and a tiger.

The wolf—Bloodfang—apparently has made enough of a menace of itself to warrant being named, presumably for tearing enough throats out to stain its teeth red, how droll. The bear apparently ran off wounded after it came into town and got warded off (two nights ago I'm told), and I'm starting to suspect this place is populated by loonies too because the tiger—also named, "Hobbes"—supposedly talks.

Last minor note: apparently a well-known local figure, Old Man Willow, has gone mad and started turning the very forest against the place too. I must be the only person with two brain cells to rub together here, for he is surely the reason why all the wildlife outside the walls is so hostile.

Day 3/9:46, CL11, Stronghold/400'

I've decided to tackle the bandit problem by going directly for the head; I figure if I take out the guards holed up outside the cave I will have alerted these "Southerings" that someone who is actually capable is coming for them. Don't want to put them on guard, after all.

I'm starting to wonder what on earth happened here; a mere outpost shouldn't be attracting this much trouble, unless there's more going on than is immediately obvious. I've killed what seemed to be people's pets in this cave, and I'm not talking about bandit pets. I mean pets of actual townsfolk, and they seemed to be frothing rabid beasts from what I could glance before I had to put them down.

I also encountered some small slippery creature that talked to itself in third person; had to drink a potion that enhances eyesight just to get a good look at it. It kept taking my stuff, and didn't seemed like it could be reasoned with so I had to put it down too.

I don't know what Bullroarer was doing here—hopefully not working for these "Southerings," him doing so would only mean this situation is more complicated than it would seem as I feared—but I caught him napping and managed to pick him off before he could reach me. He was as fast as they say; I'd say he moved at twice my speed, triple that of what you would expect for the smaller folk with their short legs.

Situation may in fact be massively more complicated than expected; I found a member of the Easterling bandit tribe here as well. Between Easterlings and Southerings, I'm starting to wonder if the Southerings are just a vassal group under the Easterlings, which doesn't bode well, since the Easterlings have created quite the reputation for themselves as threats to proper civilization.

I've encountered Wormtongue—known lackey of Saruman, another menace to the peace—and Robin Hood, a known thief who claims chivalrous reasons for his stealing here.

I also encountered an orc war party in here—I think I heard members of the band shout Lagduf—and if orcs are colluding with Southerings and the Southerings are colluding with Saruman and the Easterlings I'm starting to dread that there's an active conspiracy by all the known powers who are aiming to conquer.

Well, there goes the element of surprise.

Found one of the high-ranking Southerings, "King" Duosi. I took him out before he could sound the alarm, but high-ranking as he is his disappearance will be noticed.

I'd be nice if I could find the boss of the lot before that happens, but luck hasn't been on my side; this cave is a maze, and much bigger than one would think looking at it from the outside. There must be multitudes of pathways, and given how numerous the enemies have been someone's going to find out something happened soonish.

Ran into another high-ranking Southering, Dailai Dongzhu, a captain.

It can't be a coincidence that two high-ranking members were here, they had to have been waiting for me. I thought I had snuck in here without their guards on the outside seeing me, but either that wasn't true or my presence has been detected somehow.

Even the yeeks are in on this conspiracy by the powers, apparently. Came across Orfax, prince of the yeeks surrounded by others of his kind who were equipped with some strange apparatus.

I dunno what it was, but when I shot one it, uh, blew up. Which blew up the one next to it. Which blew up others nearby. Which blew up just about the entire escort surrounding Orfax, who somehow barely survived the mess; one more shot finished him off. Only two other yeeks survived that; one brown and another brown who was outfitted with another of those devices.

I, uh, may need to bathe next time I'm in Outpost, I have yeek viscera all over me, yuck.

Another orc warband—Ufthak's—as well as a strange man that didn't seem all together there. He talked of esoteric things beyond me.

Frankly, I think he was mad, but he was coherent enough to conjure forth strange bug creatures to attack me, and when he approached me and struck me himself the world seemed weird and different. I swear, for some reason I thought I was suddenly a leper, or a snotling.

I caught sight of Grishnakh's warband too, but even though he too had a bounty on him I elected to enact that phrase "discretion is the better part of valor."

Considering this cave, I'll see him again somehow no doubt.

Sure enough, I was there.

I was two or three rooms away, even, not sure how I didn't get bushwhacked while making journal entries.

Meng Huo knew I was coming, as expected; as soon as I was close enough to know pinpoint where he was he was sending his gang after me himself.

Luckily, he wasn't adverse to engaging personally, and I made use of some nifty magic scrolls to debilitate him while I finished taking out his band, before finishing him too.

He seemed particularly upset; I think I heard something about vengeance for his wife. Come to think of it, I think I know who he was talking about; there was this woman before my entry concerning Ufthak. I think got distracted from making a note of her because I was still shivering in revulsion over that thing.

Great, now I'm thinking of it again, ugh.

Wrapping up a few loose end before I try to make my may back to Morivant; it goes against my grain to just let a bounty be like I did with Grishnakh, so I'm going to try hunt him down before leaving.

I'm probably also going to hunt Bloodfang and that bear down too; the incompetence here is mind-boggling, if I don't do it heavens knows they won't be able to.

Boy, if I don't think my opinion of the populace here can get any lower.

I spent what felt like five minutes—five minutes!—outside of Outpost and that was all it took to find both Bloodfang and that bear. Pretty sure it took longer to kill the two of them than it did to find them.

But whatever, I'm out of this hellhole now, this place is no longer my problem.

Day 7/19:27, CL23, Orc cave/750'

Didn't reach Morivant before sundown; had to take shelter in a cave approximately halfway between Outpost and Morivant by my estimation. A carrion seemed to have the same idea; it didn't mind sharing though after some . . . persuasion.

While looking around for the optimal place to make camp, I noticed that the ground seemed to be rife with orc tracks . . . this might be that unknown orc stronghold that they—that is to say, Morivant scouts—have been unable to find.

On second thought, I might press on to Morivant even into the night; there'll be no safe place to make camp with orcs around, and certainly not on their own front door.

Mostly alright.

Got ambushed about an hour or two out I think; what the hell are the patrols doing, can't even be within two hours travel of the city without being attacked by ruffians and orcs.

I'm about to head up to the castle now, make my report on the roads and to what I think I found about the orc situation.

Day 8/6:49, CL23, Orc cave/750'


I went to the castle. Surpisingly, did not have to wait long for an audition. Unfortunately, the results of the audition were . . . not was I was hoping for.

Didn't get more than ten words in before scouts came in and spoke in hushed words to the king; didn't hear what was said clearly, but I thought I made out the words "graveyard," "castle," "Telmora," "spider," and "forest."

Whatever it was, it must not have been good news, considering the look of unease on the king's face from it.

After the scout left, I made my report as I was going to; the king, far from relieved, looked only more stricken.

To my surprise, the king must've known of my vocation, as he offered to buy my services to investigate, and hopefully eliminate, the orc menace that I might've discovered the hideout of.

I had to bite back scathing words; I am a hunter of bounties, not an army, and I am ill-equipped to handle the latter in turn. But.


The price he named . . . it was a lot of gold. And it does not behoove to turn down royalty.

Looks like I have a new mission.

Went to the inn afterwards, whereupon two things of note happened.

Firstly, I was approached by someone claiming to represent the local Thieves' Guild, with an offer for work; apparently there's some competition between the local magic shop and them. They want me to sneak into the back and trash the place, to show the magic shop owner how the Thieves' Guild feels about others infringing on their territory. Unfortunately, I had to decline, at least for now, as the king's commission has first priority, and it's not professional to be working on multiple jobs at once in my line of work. Conflicts of interest, you see.

The other things that happened was a piece of news; apparently, while I was up at the castle the local wizards got a teleportation service up and running between Morivant and Outpost.

If I had waited just one more day, I could've saved myself the trouble of travel for a modest fee. Surely, the gods are watching and laughing at me.

Getting close to the deepest part of the caves now; killed another named orc captain—Shagrat, I think his band called him—and dragged his corpse back as evidence of my progress. Got a singular potion of healing for my trouble; probably heals as much damage as I'm capable of surviving at this point, might be useful, though I would've preferred something more . . . monetary.

Dragged another high-ranking orc (Lugdush, an uruk this time) corpse back as proof that I'm doing stuff. Reward this time was a potion of concentrated mana; I'm told it'll alive mental fatigue and restore some power to any magical devices I carry when I quaff it.

Not sure how it would do the latter, but in any case it wouldn't matter much for me anyway.

Some orc in Lugdush's band actually carried a decent sling; not as accurate as what I'm currently using, but it slings with noticeably more force. Probably worthwhile to switch to, things are consistently taking multiple shots apiece to put down now.

Azog is dead. I stoned him to death myself and brought his corpse back as evidence. The relief on the king's face was noticeable (yet still slight and faded quickly) when I did so.

The king, however, seems to be not satisfied with just this though; Azog apparently has a son, that goes by the revolting name of Bolg, and Bolg is wanted dead too, that the orc menace has no meaningful figure to rally behind left.

Back to it then, I guess.

No sign of Bolg, but I did run into the prince of that one dwarven house of ill repute; Hagen, I think his name was.

Anyway, whatever his name was, he was wanted, so stoned to death he got. My "reward" was a scroll of magics supposedly useful in an absolute emergency, when you are surrounded on all sides and escape seems impossible.

Finally found Bolg, smack in the middle of negotiating with one of those Black Numenoreans. The apparently conspiracy only grows.

My reward for dragging Bolg's corpse in as evidence was a potion of "*enlightenment*". No, I don't know how they asterisks were vocalized either. Supposedly it gives unparalleled powers of awareness; the list of effects I was given was so long that I think most of it exaggeration. Still, if it does even a quarter of what it was claimed to do it'll be useful for an emergency.

The king has made further requests for my services; he wishes me to deliver correspondence to the king of Telmora, and while on the way keep an eye on the forest the road runs by to the southeast. Apparently, many people have gone missing in the area while travelling, and his scouts has been unable to find the cause, except to eliminate bandits and the like as such.

If I note anything out of the ordinary, he wants me to inform the Telmoran king, who shall send word back with another scout. In the meantime, I am to assist Telmora however they ask of me; I am, for the time being, to treat the kingdoms as they were in an equal alliance, and that the bidding of one king would be the bidding of all of them.

I can't help but feel like I am out of my depth here; surely there are better people to entrust with these matters. However, again, it does pay well, and again, it does not behoove to turn down royalty.

It's like the feeling I got at Outpost, but worse. The place is dark, oppressive, like some terrible thing hangs over it. The place feels hungry, like at any moment it is liable to swallow one whole and leave not a trace—which is fitting, because that's what the king had said happened to people who travelled by here.

Arrived at Telmora last night safely; had the audience with the king this morning.

He, of course, has matters he would like to hire me for, but there are more important matters that need attention. The correspondence I delivered was on the topic of the teleportation service that's up between Morivant and its outskirts; the nature of the latter was to get Telmora and Angwil in on it too, to make travel between the alliance kingdoms safer.

Naturally, as I just arrived this morning, it'll take the court sorcerers some time to verify the service and make sure it's running smoothly, so I'm invited to make myself home for the moment while they do just that. After that, they want me to do what I just did here with Angwil, carrying information about this magical network to there.

In the meantime, I think I'll find something to occupy myself with. Prices are inflated here because of scarcity due to the kingdom's remoteness, but maybe I'll check out the arena instead of a tavern.

My report on Angband was concerning to everyone: Angband is quiet.

I went to the gates, even walked in and went down a few levels, and I saw nothing more dangerous than a few minor demons.

Morgoth, and his machinations, appear to have gone from the place; this is only concening, because an enemy like him—one of the worst the kingdoms have ever faced—does not just simply disappear. We know he's still out there; Nar's presence among the orcs is evidence such, but if he's not at Angband, where is her?

We seem to have traded an enemy we know for an enemy we do not.

The king of Morivant approached me while the courts went into recess to digest the information I have delivered; while not an official contract, he has asked me to go back to Outpost; it is still having trouble (surprise, surprise), and he would have me aid the "mayor" there as I can. I will be contacted if anything more important (or lucrative) comes up, and depending on my efforts in Outpost, he might bestow me a gift in "friendship."

I'd really rather not go back there, but everyplace has gone to hell it seems, and for whatever reason Outpost seems important to Morivant.

Coin from there is as good as coin from anywhere else, I guess.

Things have been relatively straightforward in Outpost, if not unsettling; apparently the guards belonging to the Southerings were still alive and reporting to someone, someone who was not Meng Huo. As I thought back then, some larger force is at work, though it's been thwarted for now, as the guards are dead.

There was a new problem however, and that's that wargs have been interfering with the settlement and its shipments; you might think that since it's just animals it's not a big deal, but I'm told these wargs were acting organized and coordinated like they were a band of humanoid raiders. They also been thwarted, but still the feeling remains that more is going on.

In the meantime while I wait, I'm going to take initiative and investigate Angband; if Morgoth truly has gone from there, then maybe I can find something useful left behind, and if he has not, the kings will need to know.

Telmora wanted me to investigate problems they've been having with their sewer system; it turned out that a bunch of animals had made their home in there, and much like with the wargs at Outpost, they were far too coordinated than mere animals have any right to be.

Angwil wanted me to take care of an orc warband that their scouts had spotted approaching the town; it seems that I was correct about something in the depths of Angband still giving orders, as the orcs remain organized even without Azog and Bolg. Luckily, it seemed like I had killed off all the important orcs, because the only named one who was left to show up was Golfimbul, of the Bullroarer (who I killed long ago) fued.

The orcs were just a goddamn distraction—while I was off killing them, a magical portal opened up in town and demons started pouring out of it!

Had to dive into the portal myself to solve the problem; a pair of arch-viles were holding the portal open and pounding me with fireballs all the while.

Fuck, this has gone from "kinda a problem" to "serious threat" now; I don't know how they're able to coordinate an attack like that, but I sure as hell don't like it!

The new situation has been relayed to the kings of Morivant and Telmora; I've been tasked with seeing if I can get deeper in Angband and find out who's giving the orders now, or at least how they're coordinating attacks so well.

I've been recalled to help out Outpost; apparently Old Man Willow has not been content to merely turn the forest hostile against the place anymore and is now actively aggressing towards it.

Old Man Willow was barely any trouble; I'm starting to suspect that I'm literally the only competent person that exists, which is why everybody wants me to do everything.

Angband level twenty-four had a sign on it: 'Beware, this level is guarded by 14 Ghosts!'

I don't know if they expected that to scare me or something, but I appreciated the warning.

I must be making progress into the depths, because I just found another wanted black numenorean, Angamaite. Hopefully I'll get somewhere soon.

I might have run into something of a wall here; I'm consistently running into named mooks now whenever I try to progress further—it was Ugluk this time. Thought I had offed every ranked orc, but they just keep popping out of the woodwork.

Ran into a fucking disenchanter beast; unfortunately the damned thing got me good. My weapon, my shield, my sling, and my helmet all lost some of their power.

Given the difficulty I'm running into in penetrating further into Angband, I've been recalled to assist with more troubles at the home kingdoms likely orchestrated by the powers.

Telmora in particular is having a rough time of it currently; it seems there's been a general run of bad luck, involving things from livestock dying mysteriously to people getting sick to even the infestation in the sewer I already took care of.

Thankfully, it looks like I may not in fact be the only competent person around; the Telmoran king has had his spies investigate and they found that it all started around the time a stranger to the city bought an abandoned dwelling. While not evidence by itself; the court sorcerers have also detected chaos magic coming from said residence.

All I have to do it take out this stranger, and hopefully it'll solve most of the problems here in Telmora.

The raid went flawlessly; I burst in the door, drank a potion to increase my speed, and stoned the guy to death as he came around the corner.

I'm not terribly impress by how I was rewarded for it though; the king gifted me a magical rod that I might harness those powers against my enemies . . . except I don't know a damned thing about magical devices! I can barely read the basic scrolls and use the basic rods!

Morivant has requested my services now; it seems some foul presence has take root in the inn's cellar. The place has odd fumes, and when a canary was placed to test the air quality it died "within minutes."

Some guards went in to investigate further, but claimed that the air itself attacked them.

Hopefully it's just some air spirits.

It was not just air spirits, though those were there too.

I swear every single hostile thing down there was hard to see; I don't know how I would've managed were it not for this dunadan polearm.

I could barely breathe to begin with because the innkeeper had a fungal infestation in his cellar, so the air was full of spores. Then there were his guard dogs—he had tamed some clear hounds—but those were hostile like all the wildlife in Outpost! Not only that, but even the floor attacked me at times! Some of it was just traps the innkeeper laid to dissuade anyone other than himself or the tavern wenches from coming down here, but other times the floor was actually possessed and tried to swallow me! The walls too!

There were also . . . things. I don't know how to describe them, other than that they were like darkness incarnate, malicious and somehow alive. There was also some kind of oozing liquid that seemed to absorb and light that touched it; I could only tell where it was by where the light was not.

Lastly, I found the fumes the reports spoke of; there was mist that felt like it were trying to draw my very life essence out of me, and noxious odors that caused me to choke on the lack of breathable air even as they caused me to see things I knew were not there.

I don't know how I dispelled half of the things I came across down there; for all their coherence and maliciousness I guess they were still tenuous enough to be waved into unbeing, thankfully.

My "reward" for saving the innkeeper's business was a magical rod that would impart unparalled detecting on command; the thought it nice, really nice, it would genuinely be useful, except I still don't know anything about magical devices.

For once, I've not been given any new assignments; the kings need to counsel again, so I am left to my own . . . devices . . . for once.

Maybe I'll see if that Thieves' Guild job is in still need of completion.

As it turns out, the job was still available, and it turned out to be slightly more complicated than I was first informed—only slightly, though.

It turned out that, strictly, it wasn't the magic shop infringing on Thieves' Guild territory, but rather than the Black Market wasn't happy about the current business arrangement between the Thieves' Guild and themselves. So, they had approached the magic shop with the proposition that they become the new supplier, cutting out the Thieves' Guild entirely. Obviously, the Thieves' Guild wasn't too happy, so they had me trash the magic shop and then the Black Market for good measure to show their displeasure. I was told that I was welcome to whatever treasures I found during both.

I gotta say, the new business arrangement doesn't look like it was working out very well; there was barely anything valuable in either the magic shop's or the black market's back rooms. I've the sneaking suspicion that the Thieves' Guild knew this, which is why I was given leave to take whatever I wanted.

For posterity: the magic shop was guarded by a few familiars, animated swords, and a few gelatinous cubes. The black market was guarded by a bunch of innocuous objects enchanted to act as sentries, as well as some bits of enchanted floor like those I faced in the inn's cellar.

The kings are still in counsel over what strategies to pursue in face of current threats, so I'm still without a current contract.

Actually, I might have an idea—while I was at the inn I overheard a particularly unsteady customer talking about some ruins to the south-west; apparently they're quite maze-like. I suppose I could check those out, see if there's anything worthwhile to loot.

Not like I've currently anything better to do.
