It’s been a rather…eventful day-ish. I’ve found and spoken with Cree about The Incident, and have found myself traveling with the Little Ray of Sunshine caravan for now. I’ve only spoken to a handful of the others, but so far they all seem okay. Skittles is probably very…very upset with me, though I deserve it, and I want to find Makya again. He’s a curious thing, I hope to have the chance to speak to him more.
Assuming we get out of this damned place.
The Thoorin thought it’d be a good idea to go into a Tormentor’s Cavern, which is a bad bad bad place, and play with Iron Spirits, and though Iron Spirits Cerul 12 and 13013 have grown on me significantly since first meeting them, I still don’t feel totally comfortable being here. I’ll have to make sure everyone is properly purified as soon as we return. If we return. We’ve almost lost ourselves once already to one of the creatures down here. A Sinner’s Beast is what Thoorin and Anazat said it was. According to Anazat, the now corpse is to be sacrificed to Az, though apparently Elros thinks he can make some kind of weapon from it. Sounds both interesting and mildly terrifying but that’s been my whole day at this point, really.
And though I don’t like to think about it, theres also the incident earlier with the seance that went very wrong. I should have known better than to fuck around with the spirits in this place, and yet I let the Thoorin drag me down here before I had the chance to do anything otherwise. Dear Giles seemed incredibly shaken afterwards. I haven’t had the time to talk to him about it yet, but I need to. I also need to thank him for helping me a bit ago as well. Hopefully I can talk to him privately, it’ll at least make me feel better.
And then there’s the fact that the Thoorin might murder me with his own hands. I should find a suitable place to hide, or at least try to avoid him as best I can. We’re sort of all locked in this room. Perhaps Anazat will keep him away from me? I’m not sure. I need to make sure Anazat doing okay after everything anyway. Between his…transformations earlier and the pharmaceutical-that’s what the Iron Spirit Cerul 12 said it was likely to be-I injected him with (which caused the anger of the Thoorin), I’m a tad worried about him. He can handle himself, yes, but that doesn’t keep me from being concerned.
At least the little one called Annina seems to be doing fairly okay. We had a run in with a monster that had her rather upset earlier but we managed to shoo it off for now. Hopefully he stays occupied with what we basically bribed him with. Bodil seems to be keeping her eye out for him.
It seems I have quite the list of things to do for now while Iron Spirit 13013 does his upgrades. Hopefully I can get as many done as possible before going to sleep, though I doubt I’ll sleep well in this cavern.
