Kiev – May
Signage around town offering Writ of Pathfinding for contractors. Meeting tomorrow, The Protly Scribe no later than 8 past midday. Admired “pearl of power” in artificers shop; too far out of my price range. May be willing to haggle?
Been in this pub for 4 hours, prospective employer abominably late. Not a great start. At least beer is cheap and bartender chatty.
6 hours. I think the lady in the corner might be green.
Employer and bodyguard both delightful. Well-furnished for expedition; put in requisition request for that Pearl of Power. Four days bed and board at the Hawk Inn. Good food. They must really want this princess back.
Kiev – May
Have regaled all with my story and intimated that we venture forth together for greater strength and safety. Stanislav and Nataniel seem like solid folk. Don’t think the other three are going to cut it though.
Night the second – Midnight – The ink we signed out contracts in is magical. I find this worrying. Is this standard practice among these people?
Putrivka – May
Savaged by canine beast and its pack on the road to Purivka. Presumably one of the mutants of the zone. But we were South of the Cordon, is there nothing to prevent such horrors ranging this far?
I’d be dead if it weren’t for the others.
Maybe this wasn’t such a great idea after all.
