    Few more days...
    It is cool to be flying, but it old after few days. We have stopped few times, dropping cargo and passengers, taking cargo and passengers. This is mainly a cargo-ship, so there are not many passengers. The crew is not too friendly either.
    However, Nenonen came along few stops ago. While visiting library of mage guild, he heard that Xjaal had been located in Jilka. It's near Daciht. How convenient. Man, everyone is searching for Xjaal for some reason.
    But anyway, he has been teaching me bit of elemental magic. Nothing much, basics, like elemental bolt. Ice, lightning and so forth. Which makes my current spell-repertoire:

    >Break Barrier
    >Destroy Mana
    >Orb of Light
    >Elemental Bolt

    I haven't been able to train with Nxisa. She seems worried and anxious for some reason. Rests most of her time here.
    Now I am playing card with Nenonen, Qu ( the bird ) and Jake. Everyone seems pretty well armed here.
    This is weirding me out. Something is going on.

    "It's weird."
    >Nenonen: "What is weird? That you are losing?"
    "No no. It's just that my master seems anxious about something. It's not about flying, because she was fine until yesterday."
    >Nenonen: "Beats me. Maybe she is keeping you a secret birthday party. Or she is just worried about her home."
    "She has been bit secretive, yeah."
    >Nenonen: "Birthday party then?"

    "That's silly. Why would she do that? I am not even sure if he is alive anymore."
    >Jake: "... Yes."
    >Nenonen: "Ha! He's alive and well I guess. In guild I heard that someone had received a large sum from him. 4000 pien. It's like 2% of his bounty."
    "It got upped again? I heard it was 120 000 pien."
    >Qu: "Ye, I heard them telling that it is 200 000 pien now."
    >Nenonen: "The guild is trying to chase him down tho. I think they should just rid of the whole bounty-thing. It's ridiculous. It just encourages low-level bounty-hunters to chase him. He is someone not to be trifled with."

    Okay okay, here I go.
    We managed to survive the explosion and crash. Most of us got hit by the shrapnel, but we are doing pretty fine.
    I tried to disrupt the spell, but it did not work. Way too powerful.

    Most of the crew and passengers are dead. Some got hit by the explosions. Dead.
    Some got thrown off the ship. Dead.
    Some sank with the ship. Dead.

    Now there is only I, Nxisa, Jake, Nenonen, Qu, Captain and two passengers.

    I have no idea what to do. Good thing I had my gear on. I got my sword and armor with me, as well as the letter.
    Nenonen got a full bag of all kinds of goods. I am not sure whatever we should go for the mountains. Jake mentioned that there might be dwarves. Dwarves might not be too happy, but we'll survive for sure.
    We could try to get through nearby mushroom-forest. Dangerous, but there are probably villages on the other side. We could try to go around, but that would take pretty damn long.
    Everyone's pretty crushed right now.

    How are we on funds? Dwarves may not like us but coin will help things go over better. If they and the forest aren't in different directions maybe we could hire one to help us get through that damn forest, or at least get some gear to help us get through ourselves.

    Pumping own mana should do. It will take for a while and requires a circle, but nothing too difficult.

    Well, as for funds, I still have 116 pien. Nxisa has 1100, Captain lost his money in the ship, Jake has 700, Nenonen has about 500 and Qu has 1900. Which... is quite a bit. She said me that she is a performer.
    I guess it makes sense.

    I asked Nxisa about the paths.

    The biggest problem with the forest is the wildlife. Most of them are poisonous. Jake knows healing spells which can be used to neutralize poisons, but it is still very dangerous place. Nxisa says that some mushrooms tend to spread on people as well. Luckily, there are no many mushroom-forests around, this one being one of the few.

    Mountains might be treacherous as well. There is no guarantee that we find dwarves, and instead will find other kinds of folk. There might be even more dragons ( however, Nxisa that we must be extremely unlucky to run to something as powerful as Gaia again. And Gaia was less dangerous than the mage riding anyway. )

    Both sound equally dangerous, with the mountains being potentially better or worse depending on what actually lives there. How about if we split the difference? Follow along between them, cutting through a straight a line as possible while avoiding the thickest of the forest and the harsher heights of the mountains. Eventually we should get clear from them both.

    Since we're there's only two left, let's get acquainted with our remaining crew better and get a measure of their ability.

    Going between mountain and forest was pretty damn good idea. We can avoid the monsters of the forest while not going too high on the mountains. Food probably won't be a problem ( considering we can go kill something in the forest ). Nenonen can conjure up some water, but it taxes him a lot. The road is rocky and we have bit hard time traversing ( with exception of Nxisa ). The night is coming. We have to camp at some point.

    We decide against trying to pursue them. In the morning, we continue our journey. We are pretty depressed already. To kill some time, Nenonen taught me some more tricks. Conjuring water from air and slow fall ( although I cannot pull it off properly. Nenonen says it's pretty advanced and I probably won't get it right for a while ).

    But after two days of scaling around, we finally arrive at the edge of the forest. Captain knows the town, and says we can get to Daciht from there in horse-carriage ( I began to hate walking already ).

    Okay, we are here. We are doing fine.
    Currently Nxisa is trying to get some info about how the ambush went. News haven't arrived here yet. The ambush was yesterday after all.
    Nxisa is very worried about whole deal. Nenonen and Qu are bit angry at Jake and Nxisa. Mainly because they got tricked into this whole thing. They are not demanding anything tho. Captain is spending his time in local tavern ( with the other two passengers ). The carriage should leave in few hours. It will take us straight to Daciht, capital of Daciht ( it is weird how they named the capital after their land. Or is it other way around? ) The other two passengers decided to stay here for a while, so we'll be leaving with Qu, Jake and Nenonen.
    Anyway. No one died during the travel, so I think we are doing great. I did lose my cloak, hat and goggles in the crash.
    I also heard there are draconian fortresses in the mountains. They are causing quite bit of trouble around.

    But yeah, I smell like shit right now. I also gotta resupply.

    We finally arrived in Daciht. It's a quite big city. Kinda like a spiral.

    This sucks.
    We went to find out how ambush went.
    Total failure.
    They hadn't expected a fucking dragon. And it seems that the Dark Archmage noticed the trap way too soon. Almost everyone ended up dead. We met four survivors from force of 81.
    Nxisa did not take this well. She left me here, saying 'I'll be back in some time. I gotta digest this'.

    The Daciht is doing pretty well overall. Only considerable problem is the expanding draconian territory. They are enslaving people they can find, which makes me kinda happy we did not follow the patrol. Remains of some dragon's army I guess.
    And talking about dragons: there was quite bit of talk about how people had seen Gaia flying around. Not terribly interesting considering what happened. There's also another dragon nearby, Kalim. A red dragon, not terribly big. I heard some talk that he is cowardly and meek. Quite unfitting for a dragon I guess.

    Anyway, I also found a billboard with some announcements.

    >"I am being hunted. Looking for someone to shake them off my tail."
    >"Kobolds have taken home near my farm. Could someone please remove them? Will pay in money."
    >"Looking for adventures to check out a cavern in the mountains."
    >"Slay Kalim. Will pay 750 pien." ( the bottom part has been ripped off, so I guess this one is taken )
    >"Going to look for my lost brother in the mountains, need someone to watch my back."

    Hm, should I? I have no idea when Nxisa will get back.
    >> Anonymous 03/03/12(Sat)11:27 No.18187630
    The second job and the last one sound interesting but we should probably wait until Nxisa is back before we do anything.

    By the way, didn't she say her family is from this city? Maybe we could find somebody who knows her and use our last 25 pien to buy her favourite food, or something along that line. She probably needs to be cheered up. Nxisa might have lost a friend in that failed ambush.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any idea where Nxisa is. It's a big city after all. I could just wait for her in her old home.

    But yeah, the letter!
    Finding Herman wasn't hard. There are very few humans here, and only one named Herman. He keeps a shop of magical scrolls and spells. He is... quite old.
    I gave him the letter. He thanks me and tells me to get out of his shop unless I am buying anything.
    These spells look pretty interesting, but I don't have enough money for any of these. Damn.

    Okay, so should I go find the brother or get rid of some kobolds? Or maybe I should pick one the other tasks?

    Grab both of the jobs that send you toward the mountain. Look for the brother on the way to the cave, explore the cave, then find the brother if you haven't already.

    I'm going to with this brother-case. We meet up and head for the mountains. Just two hours of walk. There should not be major danger ( outside of stray draconians, but they are not the brightest or fastest folk ). Jign ( the not-lost brother ) tells me that his brother ( Majx ) is studying to be an alchemist and went to look for some plant that tends to grow up in the mountains.

    How should we proceed with this?

    His brother went to search for them on this mountain.
    They grow kinda high. Not on the peaks tho. I am not an alchemist, and neither is the brother here.
    Befriending Kalim? I am not sure where Kalim is, but he supposedly is on this mountain. Maybe he has a cave and a hoard or something?

    We found some of plant described. They have been harvested, probably meaning that the brother is around here.
    There is some blood here, I am not sure if it is the brother's or not. The trail of blood is leading up. Jign found a cave.

    I create an orb of light, and quickly hide again. Troll is not blinded by it.
    However, trolls, especially mountain trolls are not bright. They are dumb as boots.

    Trolls are kinda dangerous. They are very strong and tough, but very dumb. They also can recover very fast.

    I fire a fire bolt at the troll. It his it in the head, blinding its left eye. The troll doesn't catch fire, but it is burned.
    It has lost all interest in the shining sphere I created and is recovering from the blow.
    >> Anonymous 03/03/12(Sat)16:24 No.18190370
    Throw as many more bolts as fast as possible. Quantity over accuracy. After all, it's a big target.

    Wait, we can conjure water from air right? Would it work if we conjure water above him, then hit him with a bolt of electricity? Granted, it's salt water that is conductive, but he may have salt on him to provide that.
    >> Anonymous 03/03/12(Sat)16:27 No.18190392
    That's... Not the way water and electricity work. Water doesn't amplify electricity. The reason why you don't want to get electrocuted in the water is because it travels all the way through the water to you, not because it makes it stronger. Unless he's being submerged, making him wet will do literally nothing in terms of electrocuting him. Also, we can't conjure. We can throw offensive bolts made of elements.

    Does acid count as an element for you to shoot? Because acid is awesome. If not use more fire. Get the other eye so it can be really blind, and then legs.

    Water can help make an electrical attack connect against a target with clothing or such so it isn't *useless*. Just isn't a thing that would help here, if we could even do it.

    Unfortunately, I cannot use acid as element ( IIRC, that requires some knowledge in conjuring. )
    I shoot four more fire bolts. One misses, one hits it in the midsection, one hits leg and one hits chest. Missed the eye. The troll is clearly in great pain, but it still can charge.

    The troll shakes a bit and falls forward. The lightning bolt was enough to kill it.
    Firing bolts like that can be bit exhausting.
    .. I think I am done here. Jign is still alive. We also found Majx's half-eaten corpse from the cave.

    We'll take a rest and get back home.
