Reeq has been spending his time in Stormreach constructively, finding out more about where help may be rendered in the city.
((Bought most adventure packs. Catacombs? STK? Your pick! =D))
A month. Is it a month already? How quickly time flies! It seemed like only yesterday when the Lady Vodora and I met, drawn by the Host, and joined forces to help the little island of Korthos. I wonder what happened to our mercenary friends from back then...
And then we were joined so quickly by Neeber, and Durrtiel and Samadhine. For reasons of their own no doubt. Treasure perhaps, or just another way to escape their lives. Such a contrast to the Lady and I are driven by our faith. Yet the Host has shown how short-lived such motivations are. Neeber fell away, and Samadhine has not been seen for weeks. Durrtiel yet remains, but there is strength in that one behind all that pain... I sense it.
And now, two more. Merry Alarnic. Always there with a listening ear and an encouraging song. And a greataxe! Reeq smiled to himself.
And Jetel. That elvish girl. She said she was from Valenar? Mercenary and daughter of mercenaries. And how she goes on and on about things she does not understand! Steady and skillful in battle. A joy to watch. But surely, too young to know what she thinks she does.
Ha! Wasn't it a wise man who once said, "I am not young enough to know everything..."
And yet what have I learnt? In my time in Stormreach? How have I changed for the better?
The ghosts of the past assault me still. Will I never be free from my nightmares?
Sometimes I think I'm too old for this...
