Jeeko’s Journal – Entry 16
18th of Harvester
This place is a wonder—have learned more than the previous weeks all together. They know of both alchemy and magic, here, and our recent adventures have shown that there are gaps in my knowledge; what you do not know is what kills you. Needed another member of the group nearby to purchase most of my new items, but used to that. Have found a mixture of sleep, but more important is a formula for an infused medicine leaf that will protect against disease. Never know when plagued undead will be our enemies again.
Met the tiefling scholar, Balmoloch. Somewhat…odd, but very learned. Helping us with the mystery surrounding the pyramids. Seems they are from very old tales, so old they were believed to not exist. Hah! Historians we are, it seems. More importantly, Balmoloch agreed to look into where Bookbeard may have gone. Want desperately for him to be okay.
Selling the pyramids to Balmoloch. No problem with this, but would rather keep them separate if possible—concerns are shared only by the knife-ear, of all people. Do not know much of magic, this is true, but know much of ill portents, and gathering dark omens is foolishness. But, of course, I am just a “primitive, uncivilized kobold” who knows nothing of magic. Why would they listen?
It is…frustrating. Must learn more so they cannot ignore me again.
