Thannar’s journal 17.07.16 Where did I leave off? Och, that greate byrd Goldenwing had flewn off wit us all. O, the displeasure of it. To be so separate from the earth. It’s beyond unsettling. It makes the stomach spin and bounce wtth alarm. It might be handy in a pinch but that ride will haunt my nights. Anyhoo, we returned to our lodging, carrying with us a very dead elf. Zorak called for a cleric buddy (we all had moderate wounds. Save Lord Fancypants who seemed to be severely suffering from a papercut.) The cleric Flagher brought an assistance a slender human fellow named Gerdan. Not sure how good of a healer he is but he’s sure handy with a flint. Fire starts first time every time. He's a dab hand disposing of bodies too perhaps a bit too skilled? Ser Tam tried to see if Flagher could bring back Flyndir. These foreigners sure have some crazy notions! I know Ser Tam thinks to pull secrets from Flyndir’s brain, but you know what I say, a good elf is a dead elf. Flagher being a sensible dwarf just said it couldn't be done. That weasely Drendei sure got an eyeful. With the elf dead he pled to leave. We finally let him go and reports are that he immediately fled the city. Interestingly our lordling would have much preferred to skewer him. As I’ve has cause to note, our paladin orc doesn’t hold well to stategic killing.. For a half-orc that gets on wit most anyone, I’d say there are tension betwixt the two. It was time to be getting on so on we got. Zorak’s carried Lady Parameter we has been fair to silent since our battle. We headed out of the city for a bit of hunting and planning. Played boo with a 5 pack of wolves and partly explored a cave system. Wherein, I found a great treasure. A great treasure indeed. The lady Vigdis. Her hair shines like newly buffed copper. Her eyes are rare emeralds. He voices chimes the fall of the hammer on a jewelers anvil. And her other attributes. Glorious! Round and full as a woman ought. But how do I keep this treasure for myself. There’s a worry. She and her household had taken refuge in caves. Though initally alramed they seemed delighted by our company and the news we shared. Ser Tam passed her one of those messages he’s been carrying for months. Seems they are acquainted from a some social function. Does he think himself a suitor I wonder? If not perhaps he can aid me press my suit. There’s something to think upon. Lady Vigdis helf an impromptu reception for me and the others. Most graciously. Barley beer for all. Lord Fancypants would not partake muttering poison, and body doubles and conspiracies. Ah well, I sed before, the lad is mad. After hearing our story, the lady bid me to return to city. She needs my help. She needs me to get information as her message warns her against Boneworlder instrusions. So we stealthily re-enter the city over the wall in the poor sector and return to our lodgings. Ser Tam and golden eagle have been providing a great aerial distraction. Now to plan. … to steal a heart.

Thanar is an old school dwarf. He LIKES living under the mountain. He's gruff with a gravelly voice and a grip that could squeeze the bend out of your plate gauntlets. While it might not be fair to call him a Xenophobe, it would be all that unfair. He'd say he has a healthy amount of suspicion. Elves however are another matter. They're just evil. The only good elf is a dead elf. Thanar snorts at the fanciful tales some tell. "Other worlds" A thousand kingdoms, ha. Such silliness. He reckons his Auntie Friegal's hearth is a kingdom the way they reckon it. And o'er the mountain is another world. He wonders how the predominately dwarven party has as the sole dwarf. Those city dwarves just have no staying power. Thanar holds a patent as the king's/ king's guard offical armourer. He wields a great axe to devestating effects when he cleaves opponents in battle. Sometimes Thanar is called Thanar the Shiny (perhaps mockingly) For he has a love of precious metals and gemstones. They inspire to fight harder in battle at times but have also been known to lure him away.

Thanar's Journal 17.07.09 I ne'er thot I'd rite as mouch as I hav this saison. But being away from the Mountain and the forge so long I find my hands itchy at niight an' this scritchin, it soothes me. This band I've ended up with is half daft as I've explained befor. Now a true lunatic has joined us. A mad human lad from House Fancypants. He claims he's a "time traveler" from the distant future. He carries a sharp toothpick he calls a sword and imagines himself a hero of old. He keeps nattering on aboot a cup he must find and and feller in the future he must defeat. Poor lad has no sense at all. Anyhow, I digress. One of Ser Tam's little mice brought us news. It seems a 50 yard swathe of the wall in poor town is being demolished along wit the shacks that abutt ther. Lord Fancypants visited ther and questioned some werkers and what had to be a bone worlder in armour. Not sure how he got back to us. If them bone worlders are involved, it can't be gud. But no one can figger oot why. I snuck down with a sack a silver and provided a small vacation in silver for the 200 or so dwarven workers. The taverns will be full this week! Ser Tam received an invite from City Centre. Says delivery instuctions for his other messages hav come. Pretty suspictious. We all went wit 'him because it was obviously a trap. Things seemed pretty normal but I could tell somewat was wrong. Ser Tam was acting strangely. Even for him. I decided to have a little fun and accidentally drop a stone urn on the official's foot. He cursed rather mightily with that odd clicky accent of his. Then oddly we departed after Ser Tam left a note for his own bosses. The whole event was rather peculiar but nothing compared to what come next. In the plaza with came upon the ever-smug elf bracketed by a pair of plated bone guards. (I hav to admit the arour is pretty gud. Not as gud as my werk but gud nonetheless.) The blackguards thot themselves safe but soon found our blades told a different story. The battle would make a nice drum chant but I'll leave that for another time. Most of us took wounds in the battle. Fer myself I need a healer for my left shoulder and for that nasty cut on my leg. Even Ser Tam's bird got in on the action. Lady Parametre got boshed but gud I might hav to take a look at her arm. Oh speakin' o' her arm. Right before the axes started swinging one of the Boners grab Lady Parameter's arm and says he's gonna git his property back. When he has hold of her arm, the arm lights up with some writing and a star map. It says preperty of then shows a star in heavens. Does this mean she's a follower of some god in the heavens? Not sure. She didn't seem pleased with the way the discussion was going then the blades were flying. So anyhow, we finally killed one of the boners (grabbed the authorization to wear armour in the city (sweet), killed Flynndir, wallopped the other boner but didn't manage to dispatch him before hightailing it our of city centre. Literarly. Ser Tam's bird took of all to safety. (Tho I can find nothing saft about riding a sky beast thus.) Ser Tam wants to try to revive Flynndir. I did mention the whole lot of them are daft didn't I?
