Q & A
Welcome to The Chosen's journals. Each character is invited to keep a
journal and write down the thoughts of their characters as they wander
through Nyternia. In addition, the DM has a journal which highlights
each session. The players are:

May the Fifth
What's certain is that we are, for the most part, a cautious lot. Excepting Vernon, that is, who, if today's events are any indication, will most likely not live out the year. I believe he suffers from too great a measure of faith. Perhaps it is an occupational hazard. When one's superiors can restore life with a simple ceremony and some costly offerings, I suppose it follows that life is no longer held quite as dear. Risks seem more reasonable, the penalty for failure less painful. What is death when the gods will so readily reverse the supposedly irreversible?
Vernon may not care for his own life, but I am less trusting in his gods. If he gets me killed, and I am lucky enough to recover, I shall return the favor, but there shall certainly be less chance that my work will be undone!
I am not pleased in general with his lack of concern for the wishes of the group. He is reckless, and he seems to bore easily. It is almost as if he takes these rash actions simply because he can no longer manage to be patient. Perhaps he has no deathwish. Perhaps he simply has no will with which to combat his rashness! Ah, the result will be the same, though. In the meantime, before his inevitable end, we are going to have to take pains to rein him in. If the group is to survive, none must be allowed to thwart the wishes of the whole. I'm sure of Blink's support in this matter. He despises lack of discipline. One of his better characteristics, truth be told.
It seems we have a tactician in the form of Vaugner. He lobbied quite
strongly for introducing the arcane Web into my repertoire. I was
relatively indifferent at the beginning, but who am I to refuse to
allow the group to spend our gold on expanding my spellbook? As it
turns out, the spidery strands would have brought a tear to a Drow's
eye! Seeing his enemies entangled left and right. Eight men I trapped
with the spell, including a vile cleric I would have liked to
dispatch, and a sorcerer who eventually escaped. All in all, a very
good use of the Arts in battle. Perhaps we'll keep Vaugner around for
a bit longer! Ha!
