The World of Elak
From Ulvinde's journal:

Almost lost another one tonight. There were so many more bandits than we could have anticipated, but they're all at the bottom of the swamp now.

It didn't feel good to remove the ring from the finger of whom I thought was a dead ally, but I have to see if it's related to the rituals in my book. This god of death Anubis may be a key to a power that can help me bring back my sister, Amalie, or at least destroy those sonofabitch Schmidts.

For some reason they're looking for Clarence, the small boy magician, they've been distributing posters far and wide and promising a reward. Something tells me that the poor fool who tries to claim it will wind up sorely disappointed. The boy, however, will be my ticket into their lair.

There's reference in this book to a "Tooth of the Jackal" and a "Ring of Secrets" which I could very much see being useful in my plight. The group so far have been trustworthy; even that imbecilic Tripp seems to have found himself a "partner" in the woodsman and isn't being half as dishonest as I know him to be.

I wouldn't be surprised to learn these bandits are in the employ of the Schmidts, so that they may broker security details for caravans, all of whom are in league with each other. Gods! These people must be put to death!

Session 14:

I think my studying is paying off. I'm learning to focus my mind in ways I didn't know were possible. There is tremendous power in this book; it seems the gods--even the old gods--actually DO have power.

The rest of the bandit hideout seemed mostly empty, save for a few big bugs and a particularly big snake. Sparkles stayed up this time, at least. I checked his ring, it isn't the one in this book. He was also fucked up enough that he didn't seem to realize or care that I had it.

The more I think it over, the more I think it may be a terrible idea to use Clarence to get at the Schmidts. If he becomes powerful enough, I think he may be able to bring my sister back. But he may also become a despot; I don't really know anything about him, besides the fact that me makes a moderately cute lady. It may not be worth it to risk him for this. Aargh...I miss you Amalie.
