I haven’t been able to write anything for a while I’m afraid, things have really taken a turn for the worse.
It’s insane. I’ve been stuck on this island for ages now. It seems like we’ve gone out of the frying pan and into the fire. The fire of hell that is.
It all started when I was making an escape from the mainland. The thugs I’d been working for were obviously planning my demise once I’d finished my research for them, so I did a runner, stealing an elemental airship. Of course, in retrospect flying away over the sea was probably not the best idea, especially when I don’t know the first thing about elementals. Needless to say, I lost control, the elemental broke free and I went crashing into the sea.
I was lucky enough to be rescued by a passing ship though, people claiming to be on route to the Isle of Dread, not the most inviting place but a hell of a lot better than sitting on broken wood in the middle of the sea with only Snappy to keep me company. Unfortunately, a storm came and we were shipwrecked on the wrong side of of the island.
All sorts of nasty things have happened since then, dinosaurs and giant birds have attacked us! We’ve even been assaulted by gargoyles! Of course, I was the bravest of the bunch, riding on my trusting steed Snappy we flew around, dispatching the beast from both air and land. I’m rather proud of myself, I built Snappy with my own two hands and he is turning out to be quite an investment, especially after I added the wings to his basic raptor design.
it’s hard work looking after the others, but what’s an Artificer to do? Without a lab to work in, all I can do is turn my attentions to improving us all so we can survive our trek to Farshore, a name particularly apt at the moment.
Things have been getting even worse lately, we came across a tiefling who claims to live here, he says he hunts demons. Demons, I say! And soon enough, we found them as our path lead us into a particularly nasty area seemingly twisted by some kind of bleed-through from the Abyssal planes. of course, I was completely fearless as usual, riding Snappy into the fore, dispatching hordes of demonic apes while the others could only watch on with awe.
We’ve been descending deeper into these abyssal lands, hoping to reach the other side and find a way to Farshore, I hope we get out of this accursed place soon or else even my own immense fighting prowess wont be able to save us.
