How’s everything in Weybodden? I guess you’re probably getting ready for a harvest, or will be when you get this letter.
I’m in Veltalar! It’s the capital of Aglarond, a whole country of fancy mages who seem like good guys but they could use some help with strategy and stuff. They hired us to take on the greatest undead threat on the planet: Szass Tam. He rules Thay, which I know you’ve heard of, and while they hired us for a slightly different mission technically I think I might be destined to destroy him BUT now I’m getting ahead of myself.
We started in Urmlaspyr and caught a boat to Veltalar. I fried an evil fish-guy with the Light of Oberon. Here’s a quick sketch:
Then we were attacked by an airship! Well, not the airship exactly, but a dimension door from it. They sent some kind of angry serving girl to fight us (?) and a really super nasty zombie called a slaughterwight. But hey, I know how to trap a zombie so Liliwyn (and our new friends) can poke it to death, and we did that. It did kill a crew member, but don’t worry, I saved everyone else’s life with my quick thinking and warnings. And Lili’s Bane of the Undead and our other friends’ weapons put that wight in his (final resting) place. I hope his soul in in a better place!
Once we got to the Paladin Inn in Veltalar, it seemed like a fancy city type of place, but they had a nice inside forest that I could sleep in with Mercy. (She still won’t roll over!). But even there we weren’t safe. My new Dragonborn friend Vance got sliced by an assassin, but my other new friend Oola took him out with his own knife. Great fight!
Oh, so Vance is this amazing guy. He is also chosen by his god! His god is folded over a couple times and loves vengeance and torture but that sounds worse than it is. Vance hates slavery and I love his focus. I think he can teach me lots of useful stuff, and he seems to like kids.
Oola is a gnome, which is awesome! She didn’t like my forest greeting, though. And she yells a lot of awesome curses all the time, which is funny but is really a disease called Freemouth. Apparently the Sad Gnomes from the feywild have it, and I feel sooooo bad for her. But she’s pretty fast and good with blades, so she’ll help us kill a lot of zombies.
Then this really important guy named Dhorial came in, took our assassin, and told us we’re going to hunt Eniais Mythraheal, a descendent of angels who knows all their secrets but they still sent into enemy hands. Like I said, they need strategy help! Anyway, the angel guy seems to have turned against them, but Vance had a vision from The Folded God and realized he’s probably undead. I don’t even think Vance realizes it’s a vision, but it probably was.
So now we’re going to go up the Umber River in Thesk to try and capture this Mythraheal guy so he doesn’t give all of Aglarond’s secrets to the Thay. We’ll defeat him, and then maybe that’ll lead me Szass Tam.
I’m kinda worried I’m already about to face my destiny as Scion. Szass Tam seems like he’s gearing up to hurt a lot of people, and I might have to take him down. But first things first. We’re gonna meet some copper dragons, bring along a forest lady named Groa, and go find this fallen angel guy. Wish me luck!
