It seems that good deeds really do get rewarded.

A few days ago, right as we had started on our adventure, I helped out a poor girl in need, and then promptly forgot about it. It seems to have worked out better than I could have expected.

She paid off her debt, and then somehow parlayed the drink that the bartender made as a joke to get Errol drunk into fame and fortune. Now she and the 'tender are running the hottest new inn in Pavalar, to wild success. She paid me back, and seems to be doing really well.

All that's a great result for just 15 gold, and I would be well pleased with just seeing how such a little thing can make such a difference in the world, but it looks like we've earned a good friend as well. That inn may end up being our outer city base of operations. We've already used their help more than once.

The rest of our time has been taken up with the puzzle of the little growing rocks. They're now a major nuisance in the outer city, causing all kinds of problems. And they are turning out to be nigh impossible to get rid of.

We completely mucked up our first attempt to find Pippy. I didn't realize how conspicuous we are in the outer city, at least in the poorer parts. I wonder if there's something we can do about that. Maybe the best thing is to send in Vaugner and just let him take care of it next time.

The second attempt, through Ash, went much better. We know where the wizard who made the strange rocks lives; now all we have to do is find him. I am pretty sure that this isn't malicious on his part, so the question is how it got away from him, and what he (and we) can do about it.

Yet again, things are happening, and we seem to be right in the middle of it. I wonder if there's something about us that made Tera pick us besides that we were convenient. It seems like we have having an inordinate impact on the area for just being a couple of students. Is something out there helping us, or putting us in the right place to have an impact? Or is the paranoia from Malif and Vaugner rubbing off on me?
