A fair amount of game time has passed since I began this journal, so I thought I would offer a brief timeline.

Having secured a vial of the healing waters from the "lost" city of the Bakali in the Gap of Ruin, as well as an elixir said to be potent in combatting the influence of Chaos, I returned to Kyrnesti with my finds after having insured cooperation between the bakali, Qualinesti, and Thorbardin. Several of my previous companions joined me. Samkin, Knight of the Crown, and his cousin Dame Alexis, Knight of the Sword, brought several Solamnic troops for phase one of our plan. Additionally, Gwynnion was already present, and the nascent King of Ergoth, Oskerr, also arrived to lend his personal assistance.

Before our expedition to Silvenesti's capital began, where we intended to free Ke'Lorac from the thrall of the Green Dragonorb and the wyrm Cyan Bloodbane, I journeyed with the cleric Ke'Kithann of Mishakal to the so-called "Gap of Ruin" that lay between Qualinesti's forests and the dwarven realms of Thorbardin in the Khalkist Mountains. The region had, as far as I knew, never been touched by Chaos. The dwarves had tried on three occasions after the Cataclysm to establish farming colonies in the fertile dale, but each of these colonies had vanished without a trace.

Nightmares

Quite some time has passed since my companions and I last journeyed together. Over ten years ago, we sought out Huma's Tomb in the hope of acquiring the Dragonlances used in the last Dragon War centuries ago. We succeeded in this endeavor, as Oskerr, Gwynnion, Alexis, Samkin, Thomas, and I braved the dangers of the trek through the mountains of Southern Ergoth. At the same time, we also discovered the White Dragonorb, which quickly asserted its influence over Samkin and Thomas, and the three of them vanished. Later, I learned that Thomas had arrived, via a scroll of teleportation he had acquired thanks to his mercantile fortunes, in Sancrist in the presence of the Rose Knight Gunthar uth Wistan. Thomas apparently handed the Orb to Gunthar in the hopes that it would be used against the dragonarmies. Since that time, Gunthar has departed Sancrist and now resides at the High Clerist's Tower south of Palanthus. The Dragonorb, from what I understand, was used in conjunction with the Tower's natural defenses to repel and destroy several dragons with the aid of several Dragonlances.

After Silvara had left us, we continued on our way after accumulating the arcane spoils of our battle against the ogres and the white dragons. Fortunately, the ogres had carried with them a surplus of healing magicks, including a healing wand and a rod of healing and several potions which were of great use for us after the brutal conflict.

I was essentially unscathed from our encounter with the red dragon and its rider. However, my companions were sorely wounded and we decided to camp roughly half a mile from the dragon's carcass after Thomas and Samkin had finished their male bonding rites with it. While we camped, on my watch, I spoke with Silvara for a time, mentioning many of the things I noted about my party previously to myself and that she should not judge us too harshly. However, during my watch, I noted movement from the sylvan side of the mountain, including what could only be the wings of white dragons.

To Ke'Kr'yün tr'Sadan Rethil'r, son of Ke'Remethir'n, Commander of the Silvenesti Guard and Honored Guest in the Courts of the Speaker of the Sun of Qualinesti, concerning the disposition of your older sister, Kai'Lil'athrial, on the occasion of her Test of High Sorcery, and other matters of mutual interest:

I have been considering the nature of Chaos and I have come to a few conclusions -- or at least conjectures -- as to its nature. Indeed, in many ways, "Chaos" is not an appropriate, or at least entirely accurate, name for this force that has consumed Silvenesti and corrupted many of the people of Ansalon.

My last two entries have had, admittedly, more the feel of a travelogue than of a journal, per se, but I thought I would set my thoughts and observations here.

Deja Vu

After passing out in my chambers, bloody and battered with two scars from Chaos Alexis's blade that I suspect will never fully heal, I slept for over a day. When I finally stirred I made my way towards the kitchens and acquired food and then cleaned myself as well as I could.

We had some time to spare at the Tower of Wayreth, and I had advanced far enough in my mastery of magic that it was a good time to speak with Par-Salain about taking the Test of High Sorcery. Arrangements were made and I left Elrithin, Ilrethil, and my armor in Gwynnion's care, as traditionally wizards of the Conclave only use daggers and staves.

After consulting with Master Par-Salain, my friends and I headed towards Qualinost, continuing our original reason for coming to Qualinesti. The trip was uneventful, finally, and we arrived without incident in the capital. It would take a couple of days for us to be presented to the court for our report of things that had happened in the village, as well as explaining to my cousin what had befallen his poor sister.

After completing a great deal of research at the Tower of Wayreth on the myths, legends, and scant facts on the Dragon Isles and the Tomb of Huma, my companions and I departed for Qualinesti for what was intended as a short trip. I intended to see what my cousin, Kr'yün, was doing in the Qualinesti courts, see if my mother and other members of my family had escaped Silvenesti, and Gwynnion wanted to see her aunts, as well, who had escaped.

To my illustrious and most dry-witted cousin, Ke'Keleren tr'Sörin Nathir, son of Ke'Talareth, lately of Silvenesti, on the subject of invasions numerous and sorcery unleashed within the heart of our ancestral woodlands in the face of the Irda Queen's Childer:

After the return of Augustgrad to the surface, I departed for a short time, heading to Caer Li with one of the lost city's banners as a gift for the Ergothic chieftain of Caer Li. I also informed him of the city's return to the surface -- and, highly diplomatically, of its current "occupation" by Dame Alexis Stoutheart. After spending a day there I left the Caer and I was on my way back to Langton when I noticed a large plume of smoke on the horizon -- to the north in the forests. I hurried on to Langton where I encountered Dame Alexis in council. Scouts loyal to the Knights' and Caer Li's forces had discovered that the fire was being caused by a large group of ogres (made up of the local Vendels and the Kernish ogres from the eastern lands near Neraka) under White Dragonarmy forces and apparently supervised by a black-robed man. They were apparently clear-cutting a large swath of the forest, taking the lumber away and burning what was left and then searching through the now clear-cut terrain for something. At the same time, the lumber was being used to build several sailing vessels -- most likely to be used as transports for troops to the mainland (or, perhaps, from the mainland).

Here is the only pic file I have of what I imagine Keleren looks like in character. The art is originally that for Dyvim Slorm, cousin of Elric, son of the Master of the Dragon Caves. Aye, it's Melnibonéan art, but I really like the armor and you can make out the pointy ears in the better prints of the art in the sourcebooks. The scan behind the cut is not the greatest, but should get it across to my handful of readers.

I also find it unsettling and disappointing, somehow, that already Sirrion's role in what happened in Augustgrad is being pushed aside in favor of Solamnic agendas and devotion to Habakuk and Kiri-Jolith. Sirron's temple still stands and is inhabited by the Daughters, but I have the feeling that it will be ignored in the hearts and minds of those who comb through Augustgrad's rubble and ruins.

If nothing else, I think I shall go and thank the Daughters and Sirrion again, and wish them well.

After our successful repulsion of the white dragon and the Dragonarmy forces at Caer Li, my companions and I were asked to help in reclaiming a group of mines near the ruined village of August. According to the accounts of my allies, the mines were inhabited by a group of fire elementals in the shapes of tall, young women, with burning touches and an unusual -- almost girllike giddiness. I recalled stories of beings known as the Daughters of Sirrion. Sirrion is the old god of fire in all its forms--from the fires of inspiration and creativity to purification to destruction. The Daughters often appear, so the legends go, when there is some great imbalance or impurity within a region.
