Lord Abadar, I think my mind is breaking. I have seen magic. I have seen power. I have seen men turn into dragons, I have seen trickster gods test mortal wits and loose, and I have seen power... true power. I stand beside living gods, and I am in awe. I am sorely unworthy, and I doubt my choices are my own anymore. I'm just another character in this story. I'm the luggage carrier.
We have rewound time itself. I watched my comrade proceed through our next encounter with precognition of the events to unfold. Another token taken for the cause. Next we sought the Night Peddler out in the endless desert. Only to encounter a traveling centaur merchant named... wait, did he really exist? Who meets a centaur in the middle of a desert? The poor chap shared his goods with a living tornado and acquired himself an unrequited admirer. He offered to help his find the Night Peddler if we do something about his problem. Not far behind, we found this talking windstorm who expressed an eage

We left the Tick Tock Man on a quest to retrieve his grubs. A simple quest we thought until we ran into our rabbit friend who informed us that the “grubs” were wax storykin children. Damien was having a crisis of conscience over the fact that he would essentially be engaging in the slave trade. As he pondered this dilemma, we began our trek to the Theater. Days later we arrive and find the Theater in disrepair and overgrown with brambles. We enter, and in the foyer we see a floating violin in the corner next to a creature that can only be described as a half elf/half cricket. The violin was playing itself as the elf cricket argued with it. We find out that it is the musical director and that Balamir & Balio are the directors. The elf cricket then played a song for us that ended up charming us. Damien was able to resist the charm spell and was able to prevent the elf cricket from picking our pockets. Then Damien grabs the violin out of the air and smashes it on the ground. Cricket boy r

My friends! Good news! The lost scrolls have been recovered! Though small pieces were missing the following text is a faithful accounting of the events contained herein...
Through the dense brambles, a gate can be seen. Overgrown with weeds, the gate opens outward with an inviting feeling. The garden beyond has grown wild, but it is still recognizable as a garden.
A path can be seen despite the overgrowth. The skydome overhead provides light which illuminates the garden.
The party of adventurers hears voices arguing. Under a large tree is a unicorn with a pear on it’s head, impaled through the horn. The unicorn is standing and in conversation with a creature, while he is playing what appears to be a game of keep away. The creature wants the pear and the unicorn does not want him to have it!
The small creature’s head doesn’t look real. Dar-wynn strides toward the pair to speak with them.
To His Esteemed Magistrate, Lord of The Balance, Merchanter Divine the Almighty Abadar: In keeping with the faith, I your dutiful servant, heresigned Tamain Bergeamer Gibbles, do submit the following Addendum to his last known Will and Testament.
The heresigned does hereto retract his previous submitted grievance against the Other Almighty, known as Sarenra (see. LWT per ratta 54.246.6 subject Damien Hammerfist er: “dereliction of duty”). Retraction: In keeping with the lawlessness of the natural order of this place I have come to acknowledge that the divine is not always with us, or that our own true natures are not always with us. The Accused did lay on hands, and as a direct and observable result the perpetual state of inebriation I had been afflicted with was lifted. In keeping with the Tenants of The Great Exchange, this good deed is remunerated with forgiveness for his previous lacking of oversight. Therefore, upon my certain and imminent death, I, heresigned,

The party finds a room coated in a black oily material and there is a moat of that very oil in front of the door. They spot the shape of a pillar and a figure that Damien sensed the evil radiating from them. When the evil figure noticed them, they started firing arrows at the group, who had retreated to the doorway with Damien holding his shield up while Pip fired back at the evil creature to minimal success. Eventually the party decided to light up one of Pip’s arrows and he fires it in front of the creature so that the Damien can see the creature and trigger Smite Evil. Meanwhile, Dar-Wynn (still afflicted with limited intelligence) continued to stay at Pip’s feet while showing a disdain for Damien, who had tried to shoo her away to get to a safer spot behind Pip. The group then start to traverse the moat through various means but Pip and Damien fall in the moat. The oil in the moat attempts to cause the two to give into despair and sink into the pit, but through their willpower, the
