These past few weeks has been some of the most life changing events I’ve encounter, next to deciding to leave home.
Though much more has happened with our group then I will write about, I will say a little about it. We went back to the fort, had a great time with everyone there. Met a troll who said he owned this land (we’ll make him pay for his awful words towards our dwarf friend.), then sneaked into the bandit camp. Just like old time. Now we are planning to attack using the trolls against the Staglord, drunken fool.
But enough about that. On our journey, Shelyn gave me a quest. It was the first time she has communicated so vividly to me, not her normal bird songs, or sad flowers. She showed me a path that led to an elf type figure. The path led to a lake, where the elf women was tied up and cried for help.
I pushed our group to go find her, and when we defeated her captures she was safe. I spent my last heal on her, leaving my poor cousin to die. She was near death, but so beautiful. She was a nymph who protected this forest and all of the beauty that it holds. I now see why Shelyn guided me here. For her gratitude of being saved, the nymph became my muse, and I received a lock of her hair.
She was able to save my dear cousin Slinker, though the spell she used made him into a half elf. I think this suites him better. If anything, half elf is a step up, making him more attractive, or at least more worthy of notice.
Though to some, this may seem trivial, but for me it was a huge sign. Sheyln is not only watching over me, but has blessed my journey into making this once wild land into a strong kingdom. And rightly so; the beauty of land is such that I wish only those who can make it better.
This week, a new surge of devotion has welled up in me. From this point, I will create more beauty in this realm, push out all that might destroy it, and unite all those who live here under love (whether love for home or for nature or beauty).
My new muse has called me to begin learning a string instrument since she told me it was her favorite. I will order one as soon as we reach the fort once more. Also, I will begin making beautiful clothes, so that all will know from my appearance who I follow. Besides, I’m sure the princess won’t mind being a genie pig for new designs.
From this point on, I will follow Shelyn’s teaching closer, and will push to bring beauty and love to all. And for all to love my beauty (whether inner or outer). This means that I must try to find
