Jeeko’s Journal – Entry 3
Sixth day again. Got to camp. Attacked by plants. That’s a new one, never fought plants before. Plants didn’t care who they hurt, almost killed some people. Was fast enough to stop them. Shadowgoatman child thief “Hadarai” showed up again. Was still after Thaal, almost broke out into a fight. Good thing it didn’t, most of us were still tired. Thaal convinced him to go away.
Don’t like Hadarai. He claimed Surina’s lands as his own. Gonna keep both eyes open for Hadarai. Would prefer to close both of his.
Plants in area (ones that aren’t trying to kill me) will make good ingredients for alchemy. Need to take some time and gather some, set up work area.
Thaal’s present helped a lot with making new weapon. Can’t always get close, needed another option. Figured out how to make crossbow for my size, even know how to make changes I’d like.
