Day 45 of Deidara, Freeman’s Year 609
I find myself in the company of a rogue with a weak stomach and a quick blade, a whoremongering bard, and a ranger at war with herself. Truly, Elves and Half-Elves are the most difficult to deal with of all the races in the wide world. Give me a stupid orc to deal with any day of the week, at least I know exactly how such a fell beast should be treated. Yet…I find my companions, the self-appointed Faterinos, growing on me by the day. Our meeting in the Gem Guilds challenge was truly an act of Moradin. In the time since we’ve been together, we have stared down death a dozen times, and somehow walked away. Lying disabled in the mansion of Algrin Swiftus, I thought my ruin had been written, yet the faces of Donaldino George and Nabayo appeared before me to lend me healing and strength. They proved to be most loyal companions on that day.
Since then, I have shared many adventures with my…do I dare to call them friends? If not for them, I would never have met my beloved Cirrus, that acrobatic she-beast who sees the beauty of Dwarven love and love-making. Through our lust for adventure and treasure and slaying we defeated the evil Colonel Heradura, and freed an entire village. Now, we head north to slay orcs with the noble Gidius, a man who owes us his life. Perhaps all my dreams are coming true, and my quest for vengeance can finally be put to rest…………or perhaps not. Time will tell what destiny awaits the Faterinos.
