[LETTER #10] Dearest Nanz,
Malar’s Throat was challenging considering my current state of mind. That said, the challenge became insurmountable to me when the provider of the herb destined to cure Elder’s blindness turned on us, revealing its true form—an incubus. The fiendish tempter took away Janus’ already tenuous hold on his humanity (what little he has anyway). It was then that we saw the monster let loose…on us. It wasn’t dissimilar to Brother Grog’s monstrous rage, letting loose on Pop Pop. It was that day I realized how much Grog has grown over the decades, so much so that Pop Pop doesn’t stand a chance against my bull-like big brother. I can draw so many analogies to that fateful moment…Was that the moment you decided I needed to leave? That I didn’t belong?
Janus the monster was loose. And there wasn’t a thing we could do about it.
Then Amara walked through the doors. I thought I was hallucinating. She stepped up to the hulking Janus and held her ground (and held her ground WELL!) until through luck or logic (no one could ever say for sure) Janus returned to us. What once was shattered by my hand became whole again. I think in that moment I may have become sliiiiightly faith-driven. Slightly. A wee bit. Teensey-weensy.
The rest of our journey exiting the throat was a blur. I guess survival instinct kicked in. I was just so happy to see Amara again! I asked her to take the leadership rains for a bit. Hopefully that’ll give Antoni time to start trusting me again.
Staying at the merchant prince Wakanga’s abode was a much needed respite. We needed to unpack a lot, and I don’t mean our luggage. We traded, stoked up, and negotiated a great many things before we left. I mean, if we wanted notoriety we’ve got it…at least as so far as the Flaming Fist is concerned. I don’t think they even know what hit them! I’m not even sure I do….I’ll do my best to explain…. Gotta go for now. —Jr. #dndcharacter #nerds #dndwizards #nerdsofinstagram #nerdfun #dungeonsanddragons #dnd #nerdshit #geeksofinstagram #tabletop #tabletopgames #roleplayinggame #tomeofannihilation @spinylump @farawayturtle @atombon @fierycleric
