Jungle All Around
Goblins… not like the usual thugs I’ve been dealing with. I’ve seen them a few time out on the edges of the jungle watching the burn crew work but never that…. close. They’re quick and mean little runts. I’ve never had a problem with these thugs in town getting a drop on me but these things are quick. That’s only one of my current problems though. Someone knows where I came from. It’s not a horrible fact in itself, Griffonport as a whole doesn’t give a damn where you’re from just what it can milk from you. They know something though, the letter implied they aren’t the sort of people used to law and order. If it’s anyone from home they know order all too well but laws aren’t really a concern for them. The attack itself was a surprise. They came in under cover of the sounds of the fireworks though I know not how. Their goals didn’t seem clear beyond cause as much havoc as possible unless they were a distraction. I met a couple of good allies today though. They didn’t seem like much at first but they have magic that makes up for it. We dealt with 11 goblins today and 1 goblin rat dog thing. The only ones that looked like a real fight quickly fell to Carl’s and Pezzack’s magic. Pezzack and Carl were the two allies I met today. Pezzack is a tengu or so I’m told. Supposed to be pretty good with a sword and I can vouch for that. Karl was a dwarf but not like one I’ve seen before. His magic seemed different that that of a wizard or priest’s. He just kinda told the goblins to go to sleep and they did. We stopped the goblins, saved a couple people (including an annoying child) but were unable to prevent a warehouse from being robbed. What were they after? What did they get? What kind of pie is that dwaven baker making? We have a meeting tomorrow with Wallace “Wally” Rogers and Sisna Dunaddrum. Maybe we will learn more then.
