Da Revenge

(librarian's note: This was sent via missive to wide distribution by Sir Tetch in 1002. Corrected spelling errors)

Date: August 7, 993
Place: Periden
Gathering: "Da Revenge"
Learned: I dont' think I learned anything new for spells. This was my 15th adventure within the realms.

My memories of what went on at this adventure are sketchy at best.

Logan Treestump, once braeling, was killed and scalped this day. I'd like to say that I grieved, but I can't even recall what killed him, or why he was killed. For some reason, I think we were told, but he was never actually there... I don't remember, and this bothers me.

I recall that tensions between Chimeron and Verai were at a high, and Pol Coville suspected that the people of Verai were going to try and assassinate him. Pol Coville was a very crafty magic user. Suspecting that someone was going to try and murdar him, he pleaded to his gods for a boon: That any who killed and scalped him would suffer a retribution: his attacker would be killed and scalped in turn, he would return to life, and his attacker would be transmuted into a tapestry, or some such.

I remember that we were being attacked by forces of fay. One, the leader, was a fierce troll. No-one could stop the troll. Pol, after several hours of trying to determine what could kill the darn thing, and failing, challenged the Troll to a duel. The winner was to scalp the loser. Pol lost of course, unable to affect the troll in the least. Upon scalping Pol Coville, royal mage of Chimeron, the Intervention kicked in, and the troll was killed, scalped, and turned into a tapestry - from which it could not regenerate.

For reasons that still puzzle me to this day, Highrider made me a Lady of Periden that day. He never explained why. I still have the dagger of office, but claim no land or title within Periden.
