Today was a terrible day, I’m lucky to be alive.
Apparently in this town one dog mauling, and a crazy lady in a dress constitutes activation of martial law. I was taking a stroll down the docks and checking out some terribly made boats, something to my knowledge has never been illegal when I was spotted by the captain of the ship i was sent to look at. When he asked me what I was doing, I told him nothing and left. He then had three guards accost me at the end of the docks, who also saw me. This town is filled with any trained professionals, something that would normally excite me except they like most guards shoot first and then ask questions, literally. This many people capable of spotting me when I am trying to remain unseen makes me uneasy.
I have decided that none of the men can live for my own safety. Sadly, this means I must kill all the women and children too. If they were to seek me out in the future for revenge that would pose its own problems. I do not relish the thought of killing so many people but it must be done. If I allow people to try and kill me without consequences, everyone shall attempt to. At least I don’t have to worry about this crew stopping me, as the captain is of the same mind as me, just with more violence. Unlike the last battle where we were killing murderers, I honestly won’t enjoy this.
I think poisoning the baker’s flour is a good start, it should kill many people without a fight. Planting explosives on each boat in their powder stores is a good way to disable as many ships as we need. If the captain is willing to supply me and let me do a bit of work before we fire ship the harbor we can make this go smoothly with minimal resistance.
In other news, once again Ry’lin had Desmond fuck around with the orb without understanding the full implications. At least it currently has done anything overtly dangerous. I knew I liked Desmond though, he suggested telling the crew, or at the very least the captain. The stupid bitch once again told him to keep it secret, If I could just hold the damn thing and actually get close enough to inspect and test it I could probably understand it’s properties, looking over Desmond’s shoulder is no way to inspect anything. She’s a conniving bitch and with me almost dying I’m not sure if she’s worth the risk of having around. I spoke with Jim though, a nice fellow, and he seems to think we should learn as much as we can and blackmail her, if she doesn’t tell the crew shes fucking around with unknown magic. Seems a good plan, and I’m sure she’s running from something, a beautiful noblewoman like her wouldn’t be caught dead on a ship like this otherwise. Most likely she stole that artifact and is running from the law. I need to find out from which though.
I hope I will be able to sleep again soon or that I can finish my token, I shan’t be able to until these threats are eliminated.
