Today I met many upstanding people with concerns that cannot be ignored. The Shadow Council is something that my people should have done and hopefully with my help we can make it great enough to stop the horde finally.
The members of the council are as follows:
Obliviax Marchesson the Glorious from the Tower of Glory. A human wizard with information from other wizards who are not content with the Hobgoblin menace. He fell in battle. Yet another soul to avenge due to my own ineptitude. Someday I will be strong enough to stop this senseless killing, this I swear to you Obliviax.
Captain Alrica Halfpenny from the hobbits. It is on her ship that we hold this secret meeting. I am very happy to be on a true halfling vessel again and immediately go to greet the captain and thank her for her hospitality as is custom. It boggles me how my more ‘civilized’ elven companion can ignore such customs. The Captain is eager to share rumors with me and we relax and share a drink while we await our last companion. One of the tree folk who I’ve never met.
Snuffin Lamboster Nevelin from the Golden Fellowship. A very peculiar Genome, but that might be a redundant statement as I’ve never met one I would not describe as peculiar. She seems to be very eager to help us in our cause and helps us make a plan to get the Onyx Kingdoms. We came up with the plan to ask them to take in the slaves and refugees we rescue.
Jayra from the Restored Guard of Brightfount. I spoke very little to Jayra but from what I understand her heart is in the right place. She was very swift in the battle that followed the councils meeting and for that I raise a glass to her.
Nestor the cleric of Vodalya the Goddess of Travelers. A very devout follower of Vodalya. I am not to fond of the deity myself, but I am happy to count Nestor among my friends and allies. His main concern is to safeguard his trails, I am not quiet sure why its so important but wanting to protect what is his and his goddesses I can respect if not understand.
Moments after we conclude the meeting we hear the shaggy bastards killing off some innocent small folk above decks. We quickly run to help them and join in battle. It does not take long for the killers to overpower us. My new companions did all they could to save as many as possible but many died and I only have myself to blame. I should have known they would know we were here, I should have been more prepared. I will make them pay for the innocent deaths most of all, Obliviax was a great loss but to kill unarmed small folk like senseless animals. That is what our enemy is, a well organized animal that needs to be put down.
