My mission has taken from one side of the land to the other and back again. I have gathered little information about this great evil. The Dark One is an elusive one and leaves very little behind to follow. I still don’t even know if this evil is made of flesh or some godly creature. All I have is assumptions of who he might be, Krin the Arcane. I do not know if this is him or not but this is the man or thing I am looking for know for it is the only being the fits the profile. If it is not, I shall destroy his wicked ways anyway.
This being is slowly taking a toll on my party. One by one each is losing faith. We have completely lost the wizard known as Astrid. She has had a taste of what she thinks is power and isn’t thinking clearly anymore. Last I heard of her she is destroying boats in the ocean under false pretenses of surrender. Flynn has given up altogether on his condition and decided to embrace the unnatural ways for the night. I can still use him for the benefit of good. He has great power and sometimes you need to fight fire with fire. They want to fight with undead powers, then I will use their tactics against them and bring an undead of my own. This will be their undoing. Brand was a cheerful guy once, until he came back from a meeting with his church. He meet with a council to discuss a matter he has been following most his life, brought them solid evidence and instead of backing him, they decide to mock him. From the sound of it this rot has not affected all but for it to be in the churches is very tragic. I will see how far this rot has gone in the churches and cleanse the land of impurities. As for Odom, my Half-orc friend, he is a kind one but it is only a matter of time before his orc side takes over and he starts rapeing everything in sight.
As for me, I am not clean myself. I have not protected my party against the rot that infects this land, strong undead villains to escaped and the Dark One to gain far too much influence amongst the land. I see these as failures on my behalf. I shall not fail this land. I will not. Drastic times call for drastic measures. I will not allow any longer let the ones aligned with the Dark One live. I will remove the corruption by force and the corrupted will be destroyed. I am a defender of my woodland palace. My enemy made a grave mistake threatening my home. Their lives will be sufficient enough for atonement.
