I'm keeping a journal now, because I've just discovered that it would have been a good idea to keep one before now. This way, if I wind up forgetting everything again, I'll have the slightest clue who I am. Though maybe I did keep one, and I lost it or something...well, either way. I'm keeping one.
So. Today didn't get off to a great start. Woke up in a massive pile of decaying corpses. Stumbled out of that unpleasant room, only to find a defenseless gnome screaming for help, under attack by some people in red armor. Figuring I should pick a side, I attacked the red armor guys with a rusty sword I found.
The gnome was really surprised to see me, because apparently I was a corpse when I was put on the pile. So I guess today's going better than I'd have expected, if I remembered how I expected it to go.
The red armor guys are the "Tuatha Deohn," apparently. And they're at war with...well, everyone else. Sounds like I picked the right side, then. They attacked the tower because the gnomes were working on something called the "well of souls," to revive the dead, and the Tuatha didn't like that. Fortunately, I don't think they know it worked. Apparently, I was the only one it worked for, for whatever reason. Guess I'm lucky.
The gnome, Encel, told me that I should meet up with Hugues, the creator of the well, to give him the good news and possibly save him.
So we set off upwards, towards his lab. Along the way, we ran into some glowing plants that bloomed as I walked by. Encel told me they react that way to magic, so I tried projecting my will at a wall, and lightning shot out of my hands. That's pretty cool, but I feel more comfortable with a sword.
After fighting more Tuatha and some spiders, we wound up in the armory. I got a passable suit of armor from there, and Encel stayed behind as I went to Hugues' lab.
On the way, I fought a troll. When I killed it, I...I'm not sure what happened, but I think I threw a giant purple spear through its head. More magic, I guess?
Hugues didn't have time to explain much, but he did mention that the Tuatha are Fae, and thus immortal (didn't seem that way to me...I guess they get up awhile after you kill them?), and told me I should meet a guy named Agarth. Then Encel burst into the room and warned us that the Tuatha were coming, just before an arrow pierced his heart. Hugues charged the attackers so I could get away. I wanted to help get revenge for the person I've known the longest, but he said I was too valuable, so I fled the tower. The entrance collapsed behind me. So I guess they're all dead.
If the Tuatha are immortal, does that mean they're trapped in there forever? That doesn't sound pleasant.
Well, anyway, after that, I sat down on the front steps of the building and wrote this out on a notebook I found in the lab.
Guess I'd better go find Agarth now.
Though first, I need a name. I think I'll go by "Max" because why not?
