Last thoughts

I always knew I was smarter than anyone else in this petty village. They might have muscles, but utterly lack brains. Bluecloth may dig around for eternity, yet he will never find the way to the treasure. I did. When I saw it, my eyes watered, so beautiful it was. Beautiful and well-guarded.

A trader comes and goes

The trader that has been staying and trying to sell his wares had been seen packing his things together, after taking a final tour of the village, taking a closer look at one or two buildings. All the while his pale companion wordlessly guarded the wagon and the camel. The scout which whom he came remained unseen and as time drew close to late afternoon the trader could be seen riding out on his camel, followed by his servant and the donkey cart with slightly less wares than he came with. Still, there was a bulk of goods and wares left on it.

I'm ready

He's gone and I made sure he won't be back. Now is the time. I'm scared, more than I dare to admit, but this needs to be what I came here for. There is no saving these people, I was crazy to think I could. I have to be strong and do the thing I think is right. May the gods be merciful if I'm mistaken.

Another one gone?

It isn't exactly clear what happened, but two of the inhabbitants got into a serious fight yesterday. Although some people tried to stop it the fight lasted until one of them was unconcious. In spite of voices being raised to end the man's life so he would no longer be a bother, he was dragged of to "safety". He has not been seen since.

Blue cloth...

Blue cloth, know as Marcuis or man with many woman. His horse is gone and no one seen man for some time, but still smoke rising from house of book chimney. Is he locked himself in there? Who took his horse then? No one really know... Maybe tailor knows who has spotted close by house of books?

The working ant

I stole he said. I took what was not mine he said. Even if it was given to me by free will. And oh the names I was called.

But look at my wealth now, look at my piles of fine food and drinks and all those goods, some exotic and rare, brought to me from the edge of the world. Some of them I would never even dream myself possessing. All those are the fruits of my very own labor, no matter of what he says.

Dark Thoughts

He shuffles the roughly strewn tinder about, flames glaring bright. The night is clear and all is silent; The crackle of fire the only noise under the looming evening sky. Thoughts race through his mind, each idea criticised and pulled to pieces as he tries to create the perfect plan. Preparation is key, so he had always been told. It had proven true enough many times, too.

Death; How he both loved and despised it. He was a true harbinger of death, however. A patron of the devil himself, who he had sold his soul too many a moon ago. Death; How it became so easy for him to deliver.

Nothing to worry about

He's been gone for a long time now and without his water... I have to assume he is dead. Now I'm stuck here, with no one to protect me or look after me. Some of the people are friendly enough, as long as they don't think you are a threat, but if they realise how weak I am... All the valuables are safely hiden and no one knows about the water. I'm just a harmless friendly woman, why would they hurt me. Unless of course when they get drunk or just feel like it. With no one to look out for me, there is nothing to stop them. I could leave... No, where would I go?

What now?

Murder! They are planing murder! And not just one or two people, but all four of them! Where is Gathord when you need him? Where is Marcuis? Even Flavya or that nice fellow Rudolis could have helped me. Who can I go to? They know I heard them. I'm afraid to leave the house. What can I do?

When the sun dies

I stand at the front door, watching the sunset, ready to shut and bolt the door for the night. Suddenly the skies cracks with thunder, a mighty lightning strikes down. Horrified, I see ground shatters, chasms open everywhere, the whole village from one side of the valley to another falls into the abyss...
