I am really disappointed of the villagers. Now, after the raid, they are going to hide in their fort until some reinforcments from Denerim will arrive, but thats not the problem. The Problem is that they seem to not even be interested in saving their ill friends. If Wanda Kovik, the Daughter of the Burgomaster was not one of them they would probably have burned the ill immediatly. Only Fiala and Olek are comming with us to find the Shadowmoss that will cure the victims. The old Stoyanka has given us some potions which will slow down the Amber Rage should anyone of us fall victim to its vicious grasp. We also got a guide from her to help us finding the moss in the Korkari Wild. Aiyana a woman of the Chasind, she travels with a wolf who appers to be tame, or at least she keeps on saying so. We also got a pouch with some bugs which we can use as food for an strange raven, who will guide us on our quest.
We traveled today through Witchford, a small village that lies on our way to the shadowmoss. Ther was only one soul alive, though. An old man who was infected with the Amber Rage, but seemed to be verry resilent against it. He asked us to end his life but I refused. Leoncio tried to tell him that we could save him but he seemed to not even be listening. Aiyana wanted to kill him, she is so babaric, well she is a chasind so it should be no suprise, but even Tulkas intended to kill him. In the end we left him with a vial of the potion and a dagger, he choosed the latter. Tulkas and Aiyana also started looting the village. Unforgivable.
We had to cross a ford. Tal and Leoncio helped Alistair to bring my cart safely on the other side.
We heared that we would need to trvel through Dosov in order to get to the shadowmoss and were atacked by some raiders. But more importantly I had a dream of Stoyanka telling me that we had to coock the remaining bugs, to lure a Fire Elemental to us when we arrive who will show us the last part of our way. Tulkas and I are still not sure if it was a true dreamsending or a demon playing games on my mind, but if necessary Tulkas will cook the bugs.
We Traveled through Dosov. Leoncio gave Baba Zorya, the drunkard who was the mayor of the village, his bottle of vintevean wine as a payment so they will lock for Alistair and the horses when we go in the marshes.
We found the a place in the Swamp and the Crow that had guided us dropped dead. Tulkas started asking if the crow was magical, but we could turn his fokus back on our quest. We searched the area for some obvious entrances to some cave, but found nothing of interest.
We had to cook the bugs as it apeared and while doing so a giant crab tried to eat them but we easily fend it off.
