The intrepid adventuring party once again set off to explore the mysterious Tower of Uthathorn. This time, we were sure we would explore deep into the inner tower, using the passwall scroll that we found on a previous visit.

So, we’re off to the Castle!
Finally! I was getting so, so very tired to staying at home and reading basic magic texts while the rest of the gang headed off to other obscure errands! Dangerous ones too! That dreamy but arrogant Vincent is never coming back, apparently. The Outs Inn still has plenty of wonderful elven wine, and I may yet have enough of it to make eyes at that new bard, but…
Whisper the Weasel, Hammer Races, Korbin the Dwarf is the Kobold King! Hail!
But never, never trust a kobold.

What a wonderful journey! Except for the centipedes. And the goblins, of course. And the tainted arrows. The wolves. The persistent, gnawing fear of being stalked in the forest. But if you let things like that get in the way, you’ll never go anywhere, will you?
Well, no-body died.
But just the ROAD to Castle Zagyg is scary. And I’ve been “outed”.
We got some nice gems but … adventuring is turning out to be an intricate and dangerous ordeal. Like that bard said, ‘the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.’ I could use more thrilling victories.
