Second Darkness

Welcome to Second Darkness!
Things Right Wants You To Know

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Set Up Your Character

I’ve made a dummy character for each of you. You can either use OP’s sheets, link to MythWeavers, whatever floats your boat. Just make sure it’s accessible.

2. Make sure your backstory is there.

There should be (once I remember to get my membership sorted) a public section and a secret section to your character sheet. Feel free to put your character description / personality / whatever you want known public, and anything that you’d like me to know secret (like how you’re secretly working for another crime lord say what!).

I BECAME A JUNIOR PARTNER!

Arodus 14, 4708 AR

Entry number 4 (really 3 1/2, because of Guntram)

DEAR D,

Today was so much fun! I met up with Chesca, you remember Chesca right?! And we went to a gambling tournament! She’s looking great! ANYWAY, while we were working our way out of “hell” (OMG THE TOURNAMENT WAS SOOOO COOL), some dunderheads tried to run away with the prize pool. Thankfully Chesca and I were able to stop them (along with this really cool woman named Sabina [Her head’s shaved on the side too!] and Roger)

Roger is well… He’s Roger. Apparently his friend died, and Roger inherited his stuff. I wonder if I die, will Lam get my stuff or Chesca? Right now, I think that Chesca’s closer, so she can have my things and Lam can suck it. After the fight, we were called up into a really nice office! Mr. Vancaskerkin wanted us to work for him! Naturally I accepted! It looks like it may take me a little longer to return home than I originally thought, but I have a job! All by myself!

Along with this job I get free room and board, AND I get to play gambling games all day! AND GET PAID FOR IT (Looks like Lam was right, the winds are changing in my favor!) Our room has this super nice wolf rug that is sooo comfy and a huge fireplace! Tomorrow I get to meet the rest of the staff (It sounds like I get to make four new friends, how cool is that?!) and help with the interviews!

I am so excited! I can’t wait for my letter to reach home and rub it in Lamorac’s stupid face about how cool Riddleport is! (Serves him right for turning me down on this mission!) Though I do miss him, even if he is a smelly brother.

Okay, that’s enough for one night! It’s BEDTIME (IN A MASSIVE BUNK BED)

LOVE, EMMIE

do he got booty? He dooooooooo

Dear D,

Today the cooliest thing happened! While everyone else was out trying to get me new friends to play with, the knives in the kitchen began to point up to the ceiling. After that, Mr. Vancaskerkin wanted to meet with us in the cat walk! I brought up sneky snak to see his domain, but Mr. V was super worried about Mr. Zincher. I asked if boss-man wanted me to run some games with him, but he wouldn’t let me.

Anyway, Sabina (cool human girl who must go to the same barber as Chesca) talked with Mr. Zincher and he left shortly after. AFTER that, there was an absolutely HUGE snake in the kitchen. It bit me and I felt all achy and hot and cold. Now I’m on bed rest, Chesca’s orders.

I hope I get to play tomorrow, but I think that I’m gonna get stuck in here.

Love,

E

We met Samaritha and Leniloria!

Dear D,

Today started as normal, but then the BEST thing happened. A cool half-elf named Samaritha Beldusk came in today looking for a job. She has an owl named Leniloria, who is the cutest! Sam also taught me how to make friends with sneky snak. It was the best, so naturally I hired her!

As she went to work, all of the spells that Sam, Sabina, and Chesca cast turned into large purple clouds and floated out into the sky! It was apparently happening all over the city. So that was weird. Anyway, Sam is very good at tattoos! So now we can give out tattoos!

Mr. V returned in a foul mood, apparently Larur Feldin vanished last night with the loan repayment for Mr. Smeed. It was suppose to be the lastest payment to a loan shark. Mr. Smeed was not a nice person. He threatened us and we found Mr. Feldin’s torn and bloodied cloak in his trash! He also keeps a baboon in the kitchen?! Who does that?! (I mean, Lam keeps Guntram in his room, but that’s different) Anyway, we disposed of the baboon, and managed to get a copy of Saul’s file for his debt.

We still didn’t find Mr. Feldin though, I hope he’s okay.

Love,

Emmie

New Friends, cheaters and a puppy!

Dear D, Day 14

So I “accidentally” brought home another pet. His name is Fetch and he is a dog with only 3 legs?!?! He’s such a sweetie pie too! I don’t know why those jerks tired to keep him as a guard dog. I originally was going to give him to Mr. Saul, on account that they both are missing a limb, but Mr. Saul wanted to put Fetch in a fighting arena as warm up. So now Sneky Snak and I have a new bedmate. (The gambling table is going to look like those silly paintings soon, I can’t wait!)

Anyway, I got Fetch because Mr. Saul sent us to “talk” to a dirty cheaty-face cheater named Beltias Kreun. He lived in an abandoned church thing, called St. Caspieran’s Salvation. It was filled with people who really couldn’t afford to live in better places. I kinda felt sorry for them. We met a really nice priest of Cayden Calean Cailean, who patched up my snake bite! I hope if we start to make more money, that we can help the church get a better soup kitchen, it looks like the people there need it.

Anyway, so we walked in all cool, and then some jerk tried to get poor Fetch to attack us! Luckily Fetch is a good boy and didn’t, so we beat him up. However just as we were about to win, someone threw a scorpion on Chesca?! So we beat them up. Most of the people we beat up were okay, though I think the half-orc didn’t really make it. I almost feel bad for him, but he was going to kill us, so I don’t know. Anyway, we managed to apprehend Beltias, and made two new friends!

They work for us now and are also twins! I think that this city is a good omen for twins cause now we have 3 sets working here, well more like 2.5, but who cares? There names are Madrat and Balstan, and Madrat is super nice! Balstan needs a bit more anger management training before we can leave him unaccompanied on the floor, but he’s getting there. OH, also Harper joined us too! She’s super nice, and is trying to look out for our best interest. AND best of all she has the same hair color as mine, so she has to be cool! Sabina wasn’t feeling to well today, so she just mainly stayed on the floor making sure that no one else was cheating.

I wonder what I’m going to do tomorrow? I guess I should write Lam a letter, since I promised, but I don’t know how I’ll get it to him. He should already be escorting the late summer bunch up to Kalsgard before it gets too cold to come back.

Love,

Emmie

PS. We met a guy who loves to take care of pigeons named Pidge! He was super nice. Roger was upset though, because he had some injured ones in a cage, but he’s nursing them back to health. He also has a pigeon girlfriend. I should ask Lam if animals can tell if they are in a committed relationship with humans. I would hate for Pidge to get his heart broke over a miscommunication.

Day 15

Dear D,

Mr. Saul sent us out on a super important task of getting some super expensive alcohol and ensuring that it came back to the Gold Goblin in one piece. However when we got to the dock, some jerkface was paying off the captain and trying to take off with our adult beverages! He was dressed as captian Korvosa, and was super mean. I showed him however, and all of my arrows were true! However he did get one really good hit on me. I should probably talk to Chesca about getting some healing, otherwise it might get infected.

Anyway, as soon as we got our casks of drink off of the ship, something really weird happened. A bunch of seagulls got sucked up into the blot? And then some fell down into the water and most were dead! Roger was super upset and took a few of the living ones to see Pidge. I am kinda worried. Maybe I should actually see if I can find any information about the blot with the Cyphermages. It doesn’t seem to be getting any better. I hope I’m wrong.

Love,

E

Tensions are high

Dear D,

I think all of us living together in this room are starting to grate on people’s nerves. Roger and Sabina got into a huge fight over Mr. Saul’s fighting ring, and I’m not so sure why. I left when Sabina began to yell. I don’t like yelling. It reminds me too much of the time the raiders came and captured Lam and I. I’m glad that we both escaped safely.

Anyway, I left the meeting early to go set up a tea party with Fetch and Sneky Snke. Chesca joined up afterwards, and she brought rum! It was a ton of fun. But that wasn’t even the most exciting part of today! A ginormous wave came up from the warf and nearly swept us all off of our feet! Luckily Harper managed to get all of us up on the roof before it hit, so we didn’t get taken out to sea. And then, you’ll never believe this, but a giant bunyip got stuck on the roof! Sabina and Chesca helped put it out of its misery, and the others harvested the teeth for fetishes.

Sabina and Chesca are really good at making jewelry out of leather strips and stuff. Sabina even made a crown! She looks all cool and powerful. Unfortunately Sam had to leave. She was accepted as an apprentice to a Cyphermage! I’m so excited for her!

Tomorrow I’m suppose to help Sabina go find a safe place for the rest of the animals down in the basement. I think she talked about a gnome run petting zoo? I guess she needs someone with my qualifications to ensure that the animals will be given good care! I’m super excited.

-Emmie

PS: I’m also planning a beach day for everyone, since we’re not getting along so well. I hope it goes well!

A raid on the Goblin?!

Dear D, Day 20

I killed someone today. He was trying to hurt Madrat, and I shot him. There was blood and brains everywhere. Sabina told me that I did a good job. I don’t feel like I did one. I mean, this isn’t the first person I’ve killed, but I guess this is the closest one I’ve been to when they perished. I miss Lam.

-Emmie

Dear D, Day 21

Mr. Saul is sending us to interupt a special meeting against a bunch of crime lords. Apparently the raid last night wasn’t only from Mr. Zincher, but also a gross crimelord that only recruits those with orc blood. What a racist. Anyway, Mr. Zincher is sending the five of us to disrupt this meeting and hoping that we can keep another attack coming for our home. I’ll be back later tonight. I hope this goes well.
