A Letter to a Mentor
Gnomes are punny.

Esteemed Trixie,

I hope this letter finds you curious. Since last I wrote you, much has transpired. I have joined an adventuring company supported by A, and we have battled outsiders in order to protect this plane from those without. Not something you particularly care about, I know, but read the next line.

We entered into another plane.

Not the Blind Eternities- but rather a pocket dimension called the Fell Night Realm. Felnight Realm? Fell Knight Realm? I was too busy aiding my allies in dispatching the evil fae within to ask for a proper spelling. Apparently, the Queen of the third Fae Court (Roswyn) plotted to pull her reality into ours to eternally torment us mortals. By the way, it appears that R is to Mab as M is to Titania. We assaulted R’s fortress while her armies were out fighting an army comprised of some mortals and some of the fairer fae folk. We fought her in her fortress, and won. We struck her down, resealed the ancient seals with fresh seals(Honk Honk), broke her staff (the club to the seals) and came back home. Not before I accidently turned myself to stone, but that story can wait until I see you face to thigh. (I grew a bit- Treant draught)

By the eternal epithet, Trixie! These adventurers are protected by the Gods themselves! Kelaeran, Marlyana and Damos have helped us in ways I can only attempt to enumerate. Turning pixies visible, changing the shape of the earth, aiding in war councils and even restoring all my spells to my memory are apparently worth it to them. Without their aid, we, or certainly I would have perished in that awful Fellnite realm.

There was a gnome working for R. A sad, lonely, bleached gnome named Tenzikel. I do not know where he is- whether he escaped the felknight realm before we sealed it off or whether he will be trapped there forever. I know how you feel about the bleaching, but perhaps you could recommend to me the name of a mutual acquaintance who might welcome his courtship? No one should be as lonely as he seemed to be. If I am able to find him, I believe that the love of a woman should be able to cure him of his nihilism. Perhaps I am an optimist.

Oh, bye the hi, Do you know if there are other Fae Courts, more esoteric than that within the Fellknight realm? A is reluctant to tell me, and I am curious.

I will be in the capital of Greykeep for the foreseeable future. Please send any replies there. Give my love to mother and father, and tell them I am alive, well, and still without children.

My best,
Drago

Drago Kakrarov’s Adventure log, Day 1

Starting this log in order to prepare those who may come after us, should we fail.

We have taken it upon ourselves to enter the prison dimension of the Fellnight Realm in order to reseal the apparently evil Queen Rosewyn, of the (new to me) third Fae Court.(NtS- research if there are more than three) She had convinced a local gnome druid named Tenzikel to free her from a magical prison by breaking the seal of magical rocks at the edge of her domain. (NtS- send a letter to Trixie, see how she is)

Before today we had entered her pocket dimension, swayed the druid away from her side, and repaired the circle. That is not enough, we must reactivate it to keep our dimension safe.

Today we are assaulting the very center of our enemies strength. We entered through a secret entrance that Tenzikel told us about. (NtS- never build a secret entrance, as they are total liabilities) The back passage was guarded by an earth elemental I had never seen the likes of before. As it was destroyed, a large and obviously magical ruby came out of it. The pain I endured from trying to divine its nature was… total. More than anything I had ever experienced. When I broke free from the pain, I saw that three of my companions had attempted the same as I, with similar results. I question their sanity.

We then noticed a ledge high on the side of the room that hid some gold and a scroll case. Our newest companion, an elven translator/archer/spellcaster, climbed to the alcove with Vandar to get the items. They were assaulted by a group of assassin vines. I had to use the scroll (it was a fireball scroll) just to keep the damned barbarian alive. Pity, I would rather have had it in my spellbook.

This nonsense completed, we then exited the sub-basement of the castle and entered through a secret door into a prison. We met a human lumberjack imprisoned there, and set him free before explaining how he could leave. He bolted, and we could not catch him. I hope he makes it out. We then entered the prison of this fairy castle.

I have seen horrors before. But what those spriggan gnomes did to those prisoners caused me to question my sanity. After the enemies were dispatched, we killed the one prisoner that was still alive, as his skin had been taken off. Yet they caused him to live- horrifying. We are pausing for a moment now, for a final assault an the Queen of the Fellnight Realm. I pray that we manage to keep her locked away here.
