Jeeko’s Journal – Entry 17
Lots has happened. Went north, learned magic from Thaal (getting good at it, beat Thaal in ice magic duel) and found the new pyramid. Had…thing inside, gives Thaal his magic. Didn’t trust it. Thaal…did. Wanted to take magic? Or get possessed, or something. Wanted to keep the ring and get possessed. Said no. Think Thaal almost fought us. Don’t like the pyramid, but Thaal looking better? Maybe it’s not so bad. Keeping an eye on Thaal and the pyramid, just in case.
Met with other kobolds. They fight like big people, entered open war. Not the kobold way. Going to help me meet the tribe after a battle. Helped fight with other kobolds. Many, many losses. Fighting like big people is for big people. Would have lost less fighting as kobolds. Still, better than losing them all. Enemy is the warriors of Nilus’ sign. Wizards, warriors. Killed many, which is pleasing, but at terrible cost. Want to argue, to get angry. Waging war, fighting outside in the open is for big people, not kobolds. But I haven’t been the best kobold. Traveling with big people, fighting many battles, making big people coin, all for finding the tribe. But what if the tribe does not recognize me? What if I am forgetting how to be a kobold too? Am I going to find my tribe, just for the High Shaman to cast me out again? Questions haunt rest, but the mission does not change. Meet soon, questions will have answers.
