The Jade Regent Adventure Path: To Tian Xia!!

All my thoughts are on Ameiko
After the night of the bandit fight, things really seemed so slow down. there was a fight with some goblins (which lately are more of a tedious chore than an actual battle). I tried to get some information from another caravan, but they didn't appear to want anything to do with us. A few storms came our way and one succeeded in slowing us down, but soon we were at Brinewall. Ameiko collapsed and said something to the effect of watch out for a guy with a thing. I was a little distracted by my panic over my best friend fainting without an apparent cause.

We set out towards the town and came by a lake. There was movement in the water, so to figure out what it was, I lit a rock (or a few) and throught them into the water. What came out was not fond of the tiny projectiles i threw at it. They looked similar to lobster or crawdads, but much larger. But like all things, we slayed them pretty easily.

We reached the town and found it mostly ruined by i don't know what. The cemetery was the only place that wasn't completely destroyed. As we approached the castle, we were attacked by human sized birds. We defeated them, but reaped little rewards at they were birds and didn't have any weapons or belongings... but saving Ameiko will be it's own reward.

We went to the gatehouse and spotted a few of these birds on the roof, facing away from us, into another part of the castle. We hatched a plan to ruffle their feathers, using the fireworks we had obtained along our journey.

I wish i had been able to see their reactions, but we did hear them, squawking loudly. We entered the courtyard and was attacked by a spider. I really just wanted to make an already humorous mission more funny, so i lit the beast's hair with the light spell. we killed it easy, as well as the spider-looking humanoid that came out after it.

By the time we were finished with that fighting, we noticed the birds were getting into position for a counter attack, armed with a catapult. The thing was so old, it broke after one shot. The birds didn't give up then, and they swooped down on us like we were mice.

Fortunately we aren't mice, and we killed them too.

Stabbed a bandit in the face. Today is a good day.
Before I get to the epic attack I landed, I need to update you on how things are going. We did finally get the caravan together, though it took 2 weeks. I was tasked with the position of "entertainer" but I just dance, I would think we would rather have a bard that has stories to tell, jokes to perform, or songs. Ameiko might be the better one for the job.

After we got it all together (loaded with a few barrels of ale for the cleric, he bought it before we even made sure we had the space), we took off. Every few nights, there was a fight, but the days we uneventful.

The first fight was that of ogres and we took care of them quickly. The goblins a few nights later were much easier to slay than when we fought some just weeks ago. I think we're all getting better at this, not just as a party, but individually. But a few ran off before the battle was finished (along with my dagger still buried deep in the belly of one of them.)

We reached a trading city and I was able to replace my dagger. We also sold the loot liberated on or after our fights. I have little problem with taking things from enemies, but i do not like to steal or cheat (I have to watch out for that rogue, I've seen him when we play cards. He might not be good at lying, but cheating is another matter entirely for him.), and grave robbing is really not my thing.

The third fight went much better for me, but we nearly got our asses handed to us on a silver platter (that the bandits would have stolen as well if they succeeded). I tried to reason with the men, and delivered a sound argument to convince them not to attack us. I offered them food, and warned them against attacking a group of us lightly seasoned adventurers. But they would not have any of it. A few of us got hit rather heavily, and I dropped my sword (do I need to glue the thing to my hand?). I skirted around the fighting a little before I decided to rejoin the battle. When there was only one left and he was surrounded, I took my shot.

I tumbled around the other, slipped under arms and jumped on this guy. My legs wrapped around his chest, and I slid my dagger into his head, his forehead like warm butter.

Be careful what you wish for
First night in the Churlwood forest, ten days out of Sandpoint. A ragged looking group of bandits came at us, all wild-eyed and half-starved. We didn't even bother waking Shandru and Ameiko, unfortunately these bandits were desperate, like a mother lifting a fallen wagon to save her trapped child. We were half-dead before we knew what hit us.

Torrah got surrounded, had to flee behind the wagons. Rhask got smart and climbed a nearby tree like a friggin' mountain lion, started shooting at their backs. Rous was covered in so much blood it was a wonder he was still standing, let alone still lifting that massive sword. The noise brought Koya, Shandru, Ameiko, and Shelalu into the fight, but the now outnumbered thieves still had our backs up against the wall.

Right up to the last man, the bastards were relentless. F@%&er was surrounded and fending off three of us. Then Torrah tumbles through us to land sword first in the bandit's spine. Even I had to admit it was one hell of a move.

I don't expect any of us will get any sleep tonight, and we have one more night at least in this damn forest. It's not all bad news though, I think I'm cured of that adventure bug I picked up from the treasure map.

La da dee, de daa...
Two days out of Galduria, Gods this trip is boring. I caught myself humming this morning while out scouting, too many bards on this caravan already. The day before I was daydreaming about staying in Sandpoint instead of retreating. Facing off against the half-orc and his buddies. This "adventure" is getting to me, or maybe just too much time around Koda. If I'm not careful I could end up as one of those saps who offer to find last family heirlooms or clear out Kobold infestations from the local farms. Half those idiots never return, the other half die looking for the first ones.

On the road again
Three days out of Sandpoint and some Ogres stumbled out of the woods to attack our camp early in the morning. The dumb brutes were just as sleepy and unprepared as us though.

Expecting an easy breakfast, the first Ogre was so startled by Ameiko's showy swordplay that he dropped his club trying to return the blow. The Ogres got their courage back quickly though as Shalelu dropped her arrow and I mortally wounded a mighty sapling with my crossbow. A few more hits and they finally realized that they were out gunned and tried to flee, but we were awake by then and took 'em out quick.

Next night a pack of goblins show up, we knock them down like dominos. Torrah tried to impress us with a fancy knife toss but just ended up losing her dagger when the impaled goblin & his pals fled for the trees.

Last night was quiet again, and we arrived in Galdoria today. Did some trading but didn't get much out of the deal. This whole "honest living" thing is such a scam, I can't believe how many people fall for it.
