Problem is, I can’t freakin’ make up my mind what I want to do. I visited the area east of Nashkel to see what the commotion was. It was a carnival & I didn’t find much of interest there. Some thief pickpocketed 100gps from me to really jerk my string. I sold the stuff I was luggin’ w/me & then decided to try & slip into Nashkel unnoticed.
I was seen once, backed off, & then came back & found the temple easily. Sure enough, I raised Kagain. He better keep his scrawny butt alive though, cause I’m not spending good gold on him again.
On the way to the temple, the mayor, who doesn’t seem to share the Amnish soldiers dislike for me, approached me & asked me if I would investigate the problems in the Nashkel Mines? I agreed but I’m not ready for that yet I don’t think. I wish I could get a plan instead of wandering aimlessly. We did meet a mage, Edwin & I invited him to join us too. He wants to kill another ‘witch’ & that’s fine if it brings me wealth & more power. I’m just not getting involved w/mages of any sort – if we find her, he
can kill her. I can’t stand mages! When I was @ that carnival, I went into a tent & found one mage getting’ ready to kill another. I got out of there, & then after I raised ‘runt’ & added that big-mouthed Edwin, we went back & saved
the good witch. You’d think I’d get some accolades for that but my reputation is still in the chamber pot. NOT EVEN SURE EDWIN DID ANYTHING TO HELP AGAINST THIS MAGE! PLUS, NOW THAT HE'S DEAD, I CAN THINK WITHOUT HIS INCESSANT MOUTH RUNNING!
I still couldn’t get my bearings. I took Edwin to Beregost & some 'local yocal' told us of a Mage who lived in a manor house west of town. I wanted Edwin to learn to Identify
magic & enchanted items. Then
he tells me his school
doesn't permit him to memorize the identify
spell. That was one of the main things I wanted him to do for me. Later, I decided to go back & get that Bard in the Coast Way, if I could find him & see about the ruse w/his fiancé. On the way to find him, Edwin said something along the lines that he’d 'commanded me' to go find the Rasheme witch. I asked him if I cut his throat if his blood be the same color as his robe. Next thing I know he casts a Fireball
out of nowhere! Where the heck did he get that?
I thought about killing the bastard then but decided to bide my time. I found the Bard & headed back to Beregost where another Bard asked us if we were interested in hiring out to his mistress. We were but she was trying to murder some weaklings & I figured she probably be worth more to me dead than they would so I had the group turn on her instead. I used my Aura of Despair,
and used Poison Weapon
after quaffing a Potion of Invulnerability
. Kagain went in a Berserk
state & started swingin' axes everywhere, Edwin cast Melf’s Acid Arrow
& the Bard,Eldoth, played his little Bard’s Song. The mage, Silke, blasted Edwin to kingdom come & took out Eldoth too. I’m definitely not spending gold on that smart-assed mage & after allowing the wishy-washy Bard, Garrick, to join (and finding out he already knew the Identify spell) heck, I have no need of that worm Eldoth either. I bought me an Elixir of Health instead & had Garrick Identify all the potions I was carrying. Win-win-win for me! Got my potions identified and killed Edwin w/o having to life a finger. Somehow he forgot I was the top dog in this heirarchy!
Oh, I gave some gold to that Temple of the Morning
just to try & earn some good will in Beregost. Even Garrick asked, "why did we just do that?" Oh well, when in Beregost... Key Event:
Watching that blowhard Edwin getting blasted to the nine hells!!! Maybe one day I'll have the pleasure of being his personal tormentor in Stygia. Treasure of Note
: Potions of Invulnerability, Heroism, Extra Healing & Defense (Me); Potion of Speed (Kagain)Current Disposition
: Still in friggin’ Beregost
I was gonna go find Edwin’s witch but he’s assumed room temperature so I’ll either start some aimless adventuring checking out what’s left in the Coast Way & Lion’s Way & on the South Beregost Road North Nashkel Road…or I could go into those mines. Level Up: Current Party:
