Vegetable Broth and Session 10 Notes
Vegetable Broth

Ingredients:
4 carrots
3 celery stalks
1 onion
5 cloves garlic
3 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp salt
1/2 tbsp pepper
10 cups water

Instructions:
Wash all vegetables (don't peel) and cut into large pieces. Smash the garlic cloves, peel them, and add. Heat olive oil in a pot and add vegetables. Sauté for 5 minutes, then add water. Stir in salt and pepper. Bring the broth to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover. Simmer gently for 45 minutes. Strain the vegetable broth into containers. If it doesn't add up to 8 cups, add water to get it there.

Session 10 Notes
Business is confusing. After our fight we had some time to figure things out, and most of the party did some research at the library. We decided to get a new job, and we ended up fighting some interesting goblins. They were surprisingly strong, but Scotti was up for the challenge. Burly is silvered and Scotti is giving rides.

9th Session Notes
The celebration to Volen was very loud. I forgot it was even coming up, we've gotten so wrapped up in this adventuring. Ras'af has disappeared, and we have to find him. Hopefully someone comes up with some way, as they often do. We had an organized fight with another adventuring group, and we won, though I missed it. Scotti is enthusiastic and Tagrimm is lupine.

1 lemon

8th Session Notes
Vasili is back, and we were able to get to the ship. We fought some strange skeleton and another book. The dwarf and his crew must have died before we got there, and all they left was more inky writing. I'm not sure what we learned from this adventure, but Scotti got his griffon, so that's good. Scotti is spooked and Vasili is cursed.

After taking out the monster in the tower, some guardians of the Margreve brought us to a town just outside it. The town had its own problems, which we tried to help with, and they agreed to help us get to the ship. Not only that, but it looks like Faith has earned her god's favor. Faith is a good fighter and Vasili is gone.

Bramble Cocktail and Session 6 Notes
Bramble Cocktail

Ingredients:
2 oz Gin
1 oz Lemon juice
3/8 oz Simple syrup
Crushed ice
1/2 oz Blackberry liqueur
Lemon half-wheel
Fresh blackberry

Instructions:
Shake together the gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup with ice and strain into a glass over crushed ice. Lace over top with the blackberry liqueur and garnish with the lemon half-wheel and fresh blackberry.

6th Session Notes
Tagrimm's faith pulled us through and a strange owl gave all of us but Faith and Vasili a ride through the Margreve. It gave us some advice and we found a tree surrounded by blueberries and garlic. In helping out the Margreve, we were tricked by a girl in a tower and attacked. Tagrimm managed to kill her with some cursed brambles, luckily. I should probably stick to helping others out. Tagrimm is faithful and Burly is good at camouflage.

Grilled Pike and Session 5 Notes
Grilled Pike

Ingredients:
Pike
Butter
Seasoning mix (salt, pepper, garlic powder, basil)

Instructions:
Cut pike into 4 inch chunks. Put butter on top and season, then heat until it flakes.

5th Session Notes
We’ve set off on our first quest outside of Zobeck. I haven’t been this far outside Zobeck since I first got here. We had some trouble crossing a river, and the Margreve Forest is very big. Tagrimm doesn’t seem to trust it like I trust Lada, though. I’m not sure, but we’ll see. Hopefully we make it through! Vasili is a pretty good architect and seems to have caused some trouble that I wasn’t told about, and Tagrimm is very attuned.

Chocolate Fudge and Session 4 Notes
Chocolate Fudge

Ingredients:
2 C sugar
½ C cocoa
1 C milk
4 T butter
1 t vanilla extract

Instructions:
Mix sugar, cocoa, and milk and heat, stirring constantly until it boils. Reduce heat and simmer. Heat until putting a ball of it in cold water forms a soft ball. Remove heat and add butter and vanilla. Beat until the fudge loses its sheen. Pour into pan and cut.

4th Session Notes
We were just in a situation where we easily could have died, but we were lucky. We came across some things that I certainly never would have had I not taken up this adventuring life, but I’m not sure whether it’s worth it yet. We tried to get information in the Kobold Ghettos, which may have been the hardest thing to happen so far, and now are about to embark on another surely dangerous quest. I think we are all more capable now though, and aware of the dangers that lie ahead. Tagrimm is scary, but a good companion and diplomat, and Faith is very big.

½ C Apple water (from apple sauce recipe)

½ apple, cut into chunks

2nd and 3rd Session Notes
We did some research and found some nice people who we are now working together with to find a thief. We took a breather after tough battles against the books, and did some individual work and research. We are now investigating the old dockyard for rats and maybe thieves. We’ve already had a tough encounter with some thieves, but we also met some nice people down by the docks. Scotti is a very good smith, and I think we can all understand Vasili a bit better now.

Cinnamon Dried Apples and Session 1 Notes
Cinnamon Dried Apples

Ingredients:
1 tsp. Sugar
¼ tsp. Cinnamon
1 apple
1 C orange juice
½ tsp. other berry juice
1 tsp. lemon juice

Instructions: Mix the juices, put aside for later. Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Remove the core of the apple and cut it into thin slices. Dip the slices in the juice mixture and put them on a metal mesh. Drizzle the cinnamon sugar mixture over them. Leave the slices in the sun to dry.

1st Session Notes
I’ve ended up with a very interesting party. They seem strong, but not so strong that I can’t help them. This adventuring job is dangerous, though. We’ve already been attacked by some very dangerous books, and I worry about what will come next.
