Crazy birds are people too
I had a strange dream...I was barely treading water in the ocean, it was horrible, and I only had two options, a boat or an island. Naturally, I chose the boat, hoping that it would be able to get me back to the mainland.

When I woke up, I found Kit sleeping by the fire, I didn't see anyone else and we were getting very close to time to leave for my appointment, so she and I just went alone.

When we got to the barracks, Cecily greeted us, he's so nice, but so blah about everything, it's very odd. He took me back to speak with Meirta. She told me that she saw Raul stab Alea on the beach. She said that they were arguing, but she couldn't hear what they were arguing about. I have to say, I believe her. I hope I'm not wrong about her, but I really don't think she did anything wrong with this. Before I left I asked her if I could deliver a message to Vias and she simply said to tell him to hang in there.

After we left, we went to breakfast and we decided we should go talk to Ana. We think someone overheard me telling Kit everything that Meirta said, so we'll see how that goes I suppose. When we get to Ana's, we find out he's at lunch, so we go back to the tavern.

When we find him at the tavern, it seems as though people are listening, so we tell him we will meet him at his station after lunch. On our way out, we see Exra and T'axis having lunch with Mr. Kluckles. Apparently they had been shopping for a new bowtie or him. He seemed upset with Ezra. When we left, Kit walked T'axis back to camp and Ezra and I continued to Ana's.

After Ana came back, ezra told us the full story of what happened at the docks. Poor guy, he's had a rough week. Then, out of nowhere, a giant crane attacked me, We all tried defending from it, but Ana ultimately accidentally killed it and apparently it told Ezra that someone took it's eggs. So now I really want find those eggs and save them from the stupid people that took them.

After all of this was over, Kit told us that she thinks the best solution is to force them to cancel the show and the prospect of losing the money will make the city take a closer look at the case and free Meirta. we convince 4 of them to threaten to walk if they don't free Meirta. Everyone seems apprehensive about the whole thing, but maybe it will work. I really just wish we could get a confession out of Raul. That would be the easiest way to put this to rest. Though, I'm almost certain they would somehow just say Meirta was in on it with her or something.

A strange fog rolled in while I was on patrol. It made me feel uneasy. I fell asleep by the fire just in case something happened. I didn’t want to have to fumble around in my tent. I had a strange dream about water pouring into a room that I couldn’t escape from.

Bastet woke me a few hours later to leave for her appointment to talk to Meerata at the barracks. I had nothing to do while she was talking to Meerata, so I kept myself busy by reading pamphlets in the lobby. They had a pretty funny one based on addiction. Apparently, they have some program to help people who are addicted.

Before we left the barracks, Ash and Daksh wandered in. They were planning to do some sort of paperwork or something. After that, we all headed over to the tavern for some breakfast.

While discussing our next moves, Daksh noticed someone from the press leaving the tavern. It was time to make our move. Time has run out as soon as that reporter publishes their story. I could only think of one viable option. Convince the artists to drop out of the competition and cause the city to lose money. Doing this may convince them to take the investigation seriously and release Meerata.

Meerata had told Bastet that she saw Roul stab Alliah on the beach that night. So we started by telling Ana that Roul was the killer, so it was easy enough to convince him that he should go along with our plan. Rat was also fairly easy to convince since he was in love with Alliah. Dimara was the most difficult to convince. But with some effort, we were able to do so.

No one is convinced that this plan will work. And I am half ready to walk right over to Roul and confront her about what Meerata said. But I think the smarter move here is to see what Daksh and Ezra were able to uncover on their side of the investigation.

Weird Dream
I had a weird dream where I was lost in a forest at night approaching a fork in the road. Looking at the left road reminded me of home and the right road reminded me of my friends. I headed down the right-hand road and woke up feeling refreshed. I don't know if it's of any significance or not. I'm not good at dream interpretation. At least I got a good night's rest!

That morning, I accompanied Daksh to "look at a body" at the barracks. It was a great start to my day. Afterwards, Daksh, Bastet, Kit and I ate lunch and discussed the murder case. Daksh noticed there was a person close by dropping eaves on our conversation so we left shortly after that.

Bastet, Kit and I go see The Rat and Dimara to discuss them both dropping out of the competition. After some lengthy conversation, they both agreed, separately, to drop out. We'll have to wait and see if this works.

We Built This City, On Blood and Bone
We were sitting at the tavern having a nice meal when we heard that there was some sort of mob at the docks. According to the shouts, they were attempting to drown someone. I took off at a sprint. Bastet right behind me.

I arrived to see a gathering of over fifty creatures. I immediately began forcing my way to the front of the crowd. Nothing was more important than stopping this public lynching.

When I got to the front of the crowd, I saw Biyous being held back by a guard. He was in bad shape. I asked the guard if it was alright if I used my powers to stop this madness. He suggested that I not cause any casualties. This is easier said than done with my power, but I did the best that I could. I slashed a man who was in my path near the dunking device they were using to partially drown Meerata.

Bastet dodged the opposite way that I had gone, so I thought I could serve as a good distraction to whatever she had planned. I stepped up to the admittedly dashing halfling male holding the rope that worked the dunking device. I told him to cease at once, or be struck down. He smirked at me and dropped Meerata into the water once more.

After he thoroughly slashed me with his sword, I was in a bad way. I knew that I would only be able to take one more hit like that before I was done for. I hoped that I had bought Bastet enough time to complete whatever she had set out to do. I took a deep breath and prepared myself.

A guard grabbed the halfling’s arm and restrained him from any further attacks. The man ended up dropping his long sword into the water in the commotion. I grabbed the rope and yanked as hard as I could to get Meerata back above water. What I did not know was that Bastet had rescued Meerata during the fight. In my frantic pulling of the rope, I broke the device and sent the chair part flying through the air. I watched in horror as it soared through the air. It crashed into Bastet who was tending to Meerata onshore.

Using all of my force had knocked me on my ass. I patiently waited to be taken into custody. After a lot of questions, I was released. Bastet and Ash were waiting for me at the entrance. I wanted to go to the tavern to gather some information on the mysterious halfling man. I heard that Thenri was his name, and unsurprisingly he is a very influential man in Darya.

When we arrived at the camp, we found that Ezra had made a new friend. I’m not sure what is going on, but I need to focus on the matter at hand. Today was spent trying to figure out who murdered Aliah. I think this may have been a misstep. We don’t need to know who murdered her. The most important thing is to clear Meerata’s name. And let these savages sort out the rest. My next move is to figure out who this supposed witness is, and what they know.

Rude Sailors and Kidnappers
After rummaging through the victim’s room for clues, Bastet and I went downstairs for some lunch. We ordered and I was enjoying my chili cheese dog smoothie when some random guy burst through the entrance and yelled that some guards were drowning someone at the docks. We all rushed toward the docks, some in a quicker fashion than others but we all eventually arrived to the docks with a large crowd. While approaching the docks, I saw Esra boarding a ship for reasons only Esra knows.

As much as I tried to move through the crowd, there were just too many people. I ended up missing the entire thing. I decided to make my way toward the boat I saw Esra on earlier. As I was about to walk on the plank to board, two sailors appeared on the boat. I don’t know why but before I knew it, I blurted out “Ahoy!” at them. I don’t think they appreciated that because they told me they weren’t interested in “my halfling cookies.” Jerks! I lost interest in figuring out what Esra was doing and walked away.

On my way back, I saw Kit and told her what happened before we both were rounded up and interrogated by the guards about the incident at the docks. I don’t think I was much help because I didn’t participate or witness much of anything than transpired at the docks. I was released and decided to wait just outside for Kit. That was a mistake. Two sleazy men approached me and asked if I wanted to see their boat. I was already not in a good mood because of the two sailors from earlier and having to be interrogated. I bluntly told them to fuck off. This clearly wasn’t the correct response to their question because they grabbed me and dragged me away.

I struggled to free myself for what seemed like forever before eventually slipping away from them and running as fast as I could in the opposite direction. My freedom was short-lived. I made it only a few feet before I felt a strong grip on my ankle and I immediately hit the ground and was dragged away. I was able to unsheathe my dagger and swiftly stabbed his forearm. He released my ankle and I was able to escape for good this time. I ran straight back to the barracks.

I saw Bastet inside in the lobby. I must’ve looked awful because she stared at me with a concerned look on her face before asking for help to heal me. They take me into a small room and heal me and ask what happened. I described the two men as best as I could and recounted the whole ordeal. I regret not summoning Cal; I don’t think they would’ve approached if he had been there.

After that, I joined Bastet back in the lobby. After a few minutes, Kit, Bastet and I go back to camp after stopping for dinner (and a well-deserved drink) at the tavern. Kit asked us both to define evil on the way from the tavern to camp. She says she’s been contemplating murdering Myreta’s killer and was wondering if that is an evil action. I honestly don’t know. That’s a dilemma.
