Death of Dorne
As told by Dorne
10th of Elient
With some difficulty we have entered the walled city of Azur. There are so many people around and they’re all different! The most common ones are the Dwarves with white hair, everyone carries lanterns of different colours that seem to indicate wether you’re a visitor or inhabitant. I get to help out Ellumin as we talk to the ones dwelling in Azur, translating Undercommon so he can understand what’s being said. The one named Thrinian Kaz seems important, he’s giving us instructions that when the great stone doors to the village closes in a few hours they will not open in 10 days. I don’t see how one can count the days this far underground.
We were given a room in which we would sleep in and showed where they serve the meals. There are other travellers here, so many different ones! There was a tall woman with dark skin and white hair that tried to strike at me, but Jessie saved me from her. So many new customs I don’t understand as they just looked at each other and all seemed perfectly in order. Me and Jessie left Trif and Ellumin at the inn as we went off to find an ‘arcanist’ to help out with the choker around her neck that’s slowly killing her. We met a peculiar old dwarf in a bookshop who clearly knew what the choker was, and started talking about a dress that matched. We just want the damn thing off! Instead we were given directions to a bookshop in another district that might better help us.
The streets had started emptying and it seemed closed - but peering through the window I could see someone who suddenly disappeared up the stairs. I started climbing the building as Jessie stood guard below, a rope tied around the waist to enable her to climb after. When I got to the top I met the creature I saw before, and it was no dwarf. It lashed out and raked at me with talonlike nails and I did my best to match its speed. I pressed the advantage I gained when all of a sudden I felt how rope around my waist pull taut and yank me off the roof of the building - and I fall. Jessie, having no idea what transpired on the roof, had seen a guard patrol coming our way and pulled on the rope in a panic. She sees the creature peering over the edge as it starts shooting arrows at us and she throws a javelin towards it as the patrol comes around. We end up being arrested.
We were placed in two cells opposite each other, and questioned about the creature that we saw. I’m not sure they believed us but for now all we can do is bide our time and hope Trif and Ellumin will notice our predicament. With the two of us placed in different cells I close my eyes and start meditating, thinking back to The Order and the monastery; of home. Suddenly I feel a burning sensation in my chest, and I open my eyes to see the tall dark woman with white hair from the inn with a smile on her face, holding a spear sticking out of my chest!
