OK, things are getting a bit complicated, and somehow I've managed to stay out of trouble for a few days, so I'm starting this diary to keep things straight in my head.

We picked up a new addition to the group today. Mask is her name. At least I think it's a her. She or He wears robes and a mask so it's hard to tell. Maybe it's a girl, maybe it's a man with no "parts". I don't think I want to find out....

Senafar met us at the party after the devils attacked. She showed me a vision of myself as a Lord. Gods imagine that! Me, a Lord! I almost fainted. That will never happen. I'll be lucky to not be hung.

Speaking of the Devils, they had nice wings! Boy I like flying. I thought about having someone sew a pair on my armor, but they desolved when they died. Sad, that. Oli said he would teach me to fly like he does, but I don't think it will work. I don't seem to have any his magic abilities. Oh well, I'm sure there will be more devils and more wings I can steal!

One thing concerned me today. I heard a voice tell me I killed his son. I can only assume it was Imhiakaam. I don't stand a chance against that one. And I can't seem to get rid of this damned dagger. It keeps coming back for more, like it has a mind of it's own. No one will tell me what it does or why. I can't help but wonder if they don't know or they just don't want me to know. I am a bit worried that Nagav wasn't the only son of Imhiakaam.

Tesela hasn't paid me a visit since I had my "misunderstanding" with Gaultarkis. I wonder if she's mad at me for what happened with Gaultarkis. I still don't know what happened with that guy, but he was strange anyway. He never did seem to get along. Funny, I had a better relationship with Nagav and he was a Fiend and tried to possess me. I just don't seem to have much luck with making friends here. Other then our group, my only friends are Tesela and Tracyka and maybe Luvian. Speaking of Tracyka, I have to work a bit harder with her. Still not having luck getting her in my bed, but I'm persistent!

The group is a bit odd of late. Since Iyam died, it's changed. We picked up a strange woman named Wintersky. She's nice and I like her. She sleeps with her animals, in a cone shaped tent she calls a Teepee. Not natural if you ask me. But she's a good spirit and a good person. She has a thing for Oli I think, which should be interesting to watch. And she doesn't seem to judge me, even though I'm a bit less noble then the others.

Legeand on the other hand I don't trust. He's always complaining about me getting into trouble, as if I'm doing it on purpose. I think he'd like it if I wasn't around at all. I'll be watching that one closely. He seems to be fascinated by magical weapons. Perhaps that's his weakness.

Oli is a bit preoccupied of late. It's the heir thing I think. Plans upon plans upon plans. But I still trust him. He's never lied to me since that time when we first met and he tried to fool me into thinking he knew where his father's house was. He's a good man, even for a bard.

Nyza's been growing in power. She seems to be fascinated by fire. I hope she keeps herself safe. Magic is a strange thing, and I don't trust it.

Sparta, well he remains Sparta. I trust him completely. He's always willing to cover my back when I get a little over ambitious.

Well, my money's running low so I better get to work on some ideas how to liberate some more for myself...
