The Coming Dark

Introduction

WELCOME TO BLACKWATER

The road unwinds before you, a serpent of grey cobbles wending its interminable way through the escarpments of snow-dusted rock toward the village of Blackwater. From the wagon, you can just make out the greasy plumes of smoke pumping from the bellows of cooking fire and crooked chimney alike, each one tracing a lazy finger of black through the purpling bruise of pre-dawn.

The cart’s driver, a burgher who introduced himself only as Kreeg, seems as comfortable in the high places of the world as are the thick-pelted rams that pick their lazy way across the distant cliff-faces, his knotted beard and dirt-streaked cloak of homespun linen both tied off against the wind with thin bands of copper filigree. His fingers are equally adorned, each sporting a gemmed ring of varying size and cut, and, coupled with his prodigious gut, could easily proclaim a life of ease and comfort, but a well-worn axe thuds against his breeches with each shuddering bounce of the cart, and his arms are corded with a fighter’s muscle, for there are none who travel into the Northlands unprepared.

Least of all, the lot of you…

p. It’s interesting how much time can be spent in close area with five people and how much or little you can learn. I’m joined by two half lings, a drow, a creature clad in heavy armor, and a shady looking human. I think I’ll be okay it something were to happen.

When we arrived at the town of Blackwater I was a little disappointed. I was hoping for something more, water based to say the least. This will be a change from my port town, but hopefully this will be fun. Seeing a new town surrounded by nature will be enlightening.

So, I made the mistake of trying to go the lake which seemed closer when I last looked. The rest of the people I was traveling with walked into town. So I have no idea what is going on. This walk is pointless.

So, when I finally made it back everyone was having a problem with one guy blocking the stairs. Then almost as soon as I got there. It ended when the mayor I guess had shown, eh as long as there isn’t trouble.

So when people went to the Inn or to meet up with the same guy they were having trouble with, I decided that was the best time to stroll and enjoy the view. During the walk everyone promptly went with the hunter they seemed to not like and left. Oh well, at least I found something that looks like it could hold the words of the gods and goddesses. Figured I could waste time till It was time to go or I’m requested.
