Hold Your Breath...
Against my better judgement (being nearly depleted of spells), we take the plunge and descend into the cold water.

Immediately we are set upon by Skum, notorious thralls of aboleths. We fight scores of them seemingly without end.

Continuing our exploration we find mutated colonists who attack us. I hold little hope that we will find survivors. How could they still be alive in these waters - unless they have all been mutated.

To my surprise we discover 3 colonists imprisoned in air-filled cells. The lass, Armin, describes her captor and my suspicions are confirmed - an aboleth lurks here. Sadly, her two comrades metamorphose before our eyes and we had to put them down.

With nowhere else to go, we investigate the Azlanti machine room. It comes alive and iterrogates us. Have we made contact with the Azlanti? No. It is the work of the aboleth, taunting and harassing us.

After defeating the machine and its cogborn spawn, we make our final confrontation against the aboleth in an exhausting battle won by the slimmest of margins. It mocks us with insults and threats of a "veiled master."

To our great joy we discover dozens of captive colonists alive and intact, mostly. Among the prisoners is a Mordant Spire elf - Nieran Codali. He pledges what aid he can and warns of us of things to come.

Well Journal

We finally did it;

After numerous fights with evil denizens among them more of the faceless guys some type they call scummies and some strange creatures no one knew what they were we finally found our people and rescued them.

We started out this day like any other with high hopes and of course a little insecurity, we continued our exploration of the temple in the flooded area. Oh we also found a statue of abadar this is really a wonderful discovery I did not know abadar was that old.
Hopefully he will talk to the metal girl she needs a new god to help her and abadar would be a good one especially since they had his statue here.

Dribble says I owe him lots of berries Sighe guess I do.

We went into the last room and finally found the ugly fish guy he was very mean he almost killed us all but by abadar’s will we won and he was defeated as in dead .

Still i wonder what he meant by the veiled guy I’m not sure maybe Delmar can figure something out.

Oh then there was the elf from a spire not sure what It means but that is what he said

And I almost forgot he gave me a nice pin I shall add it to my wardrobe

Man I am getting absent minded almost forgot he said we needed to go the this underwater city and meet some one there.

Well guess now we need to get our people home and continue with building our house.

Until next time

A New Crafting Ally
I managed to repair a clockwork servant of the temple. She goes by the name Aoinse. She is quite knowledgeable of the temple layout and has agreed to help us.

Her first request was for us to re-establish power to the temple. This we did, but we also unleashed a trio of lightning elementals. It was all we could do to escape with our lives. We returned, healed and rested, to find them gone. For good, I hope!

Having cleared the dry parts of the temple, it is time to turn our attention to the submerged section.

Temple of Amaznen
The Wisps directed us to the lair of the stalkers - an ancient Azlanti temple of Amaznen. Such a marvelous place. If only our business here were of a more archaeological nature.

Battle after battle, we fight the stalkers in the courtyard and in the temple itself. Their numbers seem without end.

Among them, we found four captured colonists - no doubt ensorcelled. We were able to free three of them and have left them in the care of the Wyrwoods.

Scouring Zanas-Tahn
Everywhere we look, we find no stalkers.

At a set of Azlanti teleportation standing stones, we endured a vicious attack by Hounds of Tindalos.

But not all the creatures here are out for our blood. We did make peace with a cabal of wooden constructs - Wyrwoods - and established trade with them. They quite fancy ioun stones.

We also had peaceful negotiations with a garden of Will o'Wisps. Good thing, too, as I was running low on Magic Missiles.

To the Island of Zanas-Tahn
We intercepted signals from the faceless stalkers on the distant shores of one of the neighboring islands - Zanas-Tahn. Someone by the name of Karnax awaits our arrival. We set sail to finish the stalkers and rescue our settlers.

Sadly, we find no stalkers on our arrival. Karnax turned out to be a mimic - a table, to be precise.

We must track the stalkers down with only a week to do so. Ramona fears she can only keep the colony in check that long.

Hey journal just a short note here as I don’t really have much to tell.

We continued exploring the temple while the metal girl worked on the metal guy ( trying to repair him I guess ).

As we explored we came across a group of the ugly guys whose we killed after a short while We were attacked by several groups of the ones Delmar called Skum however we were able to defeat them. One group was hidden in a secret room of course Bryn missed it lol

Hmm I keep asking Abadar to talk to the metal girl just not sure if he did or if he ever eill. Of course I will keep trying. I have also asked him to help me find my sister hopefully she is safe.

Hopefully we can get back soon and I can get the new armor made.

Now o. To important matters I sure hope my new shirt is ready it should match this new robe spectacularly, really can’t wait to get it

Well that is enough rambling for now.

Well journal, we ended up running out and resting up at the wood people’s place.
After we went back and explored some more of the metal girls temple.
We found a few rooms that Delmar liked they had stuff to make metal people.
We continued to explore and came to this odd shaped room with some metal people but they were not friendly and we had to kill them. The metal girl said she could fix one of them and make it our friend I thought that would be good so she wouldn’t be lonely.
I still think abadar would like her she should ask him he would be good for her and give her a new life.
After that we went into this room and found some robes and shirts the shirt was awesome it was bright blue and the robes were the same color a matching set I want to get everyone to wear one that way we match in a really good blue oh and they had a eye on them that eyes made them even more awesome. Everyone needs to wear there blue clothes with the eyeball.

After that Delmar went into a room and caused the floor to fall him and Alafdal fell into the room below which was half full of water Dribble jumped into the water and we grabbed Delmar he got his new blue robe all we talked and dirty can’t have that he needs to take better care of his clothes it is a great blue one.
Oh alafdal found these dead guys that attacked us they were stinky and ugly they made Dribble sick he couldn’t move he was really embarrassed about that and wanted me to tell everyone he was sorry he said it would not of happened if he had more berries. Berries how would that of helped him Sighe he was just trying to get me to make more berries. Bryn got sick to and couldn’t move however me and alafdal were able to kill the dead guys and take there stuff.
We found a bunch of oil stuff in the room where Delmar broke the floor he claimed it’s good stuff I think the blue robe is better but we shall see. Oh I can’t forget Eridan killed one of the dead guys he ran up to it and killed It.
Well that is all for now until we talk next time

Well journal we ended up having to kill more of those ugly guys they had four people that they were controlling. We tried to not kill them but unfortunately one of them died. I felt really bad about it. Dribble pointed out that at least we saved three.

After that we continued exploring

In one room we found a locked chest it had some nice shoes in it.

In another room we found a bunch of stuff Delmar calls it clock stuff ( don’t make sense to me ).

He then spent some time working on the metal girl and she woke up and talked to us.

She said she could not reach her god.

She asked us to turn on the lights in this temple, well I can’t remember the gods name Delmar says the god sacrificed himself to save his people he must of been good.

The metal girl said he was god of creation guess she means like building things.

Oh then we went to the room she showed us and We were able to turn on the lights but then these huge elemtals arrived and attacked us. They almost killed us we ran like babies scared of the wind. They seemed really angry about something so Hopefully we
can figure out how to talk to them.

The metal girl came with us. She seems to be a good soul. I wonder perhaps abadar will talk to her maybe convert her to worship abadar. Since once we clear out this place it would make a real good temple to abadar.

I want to hurry up so we can get honey and then go get my shirt.

I still wonder what happened to my sister is she Still alive I continue to ask abadar to help me finder her.

Well enough rambling till next time

Well journal just have a few things to tell you.

We rested up after our deals with the light balls and moved on towards the place they told us about.

I was really disappointed no one wanted to get honey. I think they were scarred of the bees but dribbles says they were smart to wait.

So we skipped the bees and went to the place. We found what appeared to be some kind of temple and we found some more of those ugly guys killing a bunch of them.

We then decided to go downstairs where we killed a few more and one odd creature that made a lot of noise which kinda hurt, Dribble didn’t like it he said it smelled bad.

Hmm I sure hope we finish here soon and rescue our friend I want to go we my new shirt.

Well that is all for now.

Well journal its time to write again.

As we travel I still wonder about my sister , what happened to her. Not sure but hopefully I will find her one day.

We continued investigating the island as usual we came across more evil that needed to be removed from our world. At these pillars there was these two ugly dogs. They were very tough and we barely survived. We had to go rest and recover by the wood guys again.

We went and talked to the little balls of light and found out that they did not like the azlanti. We were able to communicate with them ( barely ). They told us where our people are being held.

We need to go rescue them so I can go get my new shirt.

Oh and Dribble wants more berries sighe

Well that is all for now

Well journal here is another short one.

As usual Dribble says I still owe him berries.

We were searching this Forrest and we were attacked by ghostly creatures

They were tough I could not hurt them not sure why.

We came across some wrecks and living amongst them were these wooden guys they were nice
They thought we were the shapchangers at first but we convinced them that we were not

We traded with them and they let us sleep there.

Their leader was OLD he remembered the azlanti he was alive then.

Well that’s enough for now.

Well journal Dribble says I need to be less Lazy and keep up with my writing.

So here is just a short one.

Well we finished off the ugly people in town and decided to help the colony again.

I wonder if we will ever get promoted shrug

Oh and the tailer still has not finished my new shirt sighe, I wonder how much longer he needs mother never took that long to make a shirt.

After a lot of hard work we figured out where the ugly people were coming from and decided to go find them.

Dribble and I pulled our boat across to the island they were on.
It was fun and Dribble enjoyed it.

When we arrived we found some ruins and began searching for clues.

While we were searching we came across this thing that attacked it it was a table can you believe that journal we were attacked by a table.

We finally defeated the table.

After killing the table Dribble was upset all he kept saying was yuck yuck you owe me a lot of berries that thing tasted nasty.

Well guess I’ll have to use the stick to make him berries.

Well journal that’s all for now.

well journal a few things happened since the last time I wrote .

We spent some time looking at this neat broken tower it was tall an Dribble an I climbed to the top of it. We looked out over the water the view was exquisite.

We are not sure what but was used for well at least it looked neat.

We spent some time talking to some odd looking people who lived by it, they let us go check it out and agreed to be friends.

We returned home to check on my new shirt but some of the colonist attacked us turning into these ugly things with long arms. Those long arms almost killed me , my friends were able to save me though.

We then went around town fighting different groups of those thingies. We came across two colonist arguing ( the same two who were arguing over the same house). We convinced them to work together, and we all proceeded to kill more of the them things god they are tough.

We went to look for more people and came across the old pathfinder he was one of them probably one if there leaders. He had some of his minions try to burn down The towns government house. We barely saved it. We killed all of his minions and defeated him but he would not talk.

Now we have the task of finding out where these murderous bastards came from, what happened to the colonist they impersonated? Where did they come from? Did they travel here with us or did they capture and kill people while we were out exploring?

What will happen next it seems we cannot catch a break.

On another note I still wonder where my sister is I pray she is alive and well maybe I will see her again one day.

Oh I need to go see if my new shirt is ready!!!!!!

Well that is enough rambling for now, until later!

An Inner Threat
Having liberated and securing the cooperation of the native populace, locating valuable natural resources for the colony, and exploring several of the Azlanti sites, I thought our heavy work had come to a tidy close. We had earned some rest and relaxation. Finally, I could settle down to some crafting!

But no, something sinister was afoot in the colony during our forays into the island interior. Faceless stalkers had infiltrated the colony. Had they stowed away on the ship among the other settlers? Have they been on the island the entire time, waiting for more victims with the arrival of each ship?

I do not know the answer, but I am certain of one thing - no colony will survive here as long as they remain. They must be stopped.
