Champions Of Krynn Journal

□Journal Entry 73

"After the battle I was taken to see a powerful cleric. He laughed at my defeat. They led me to some doors that glowed in the darkness, opened them with a key that he pulled from his robes, and took me to a dark temple. I saw a bronze dragon egg on the altar! He told me that they were going to start the corruptions again! Then he had his minions beat me.

"I woke up here. If it hadn't of been for the treachery of a dark elf, and a sneak attack from behind, they never would have captured me." He pauses. "I'm sorry for my men." he says, They had no idea what we were getting into. Krynn's blood,

I didn't know either. We were unprepared for the extent of the evil forces.

"The ambush was a complete surprise."

□ Journal Entry 74

Tanis's tale:

"I had heard of slaves being taken in the area, so I disguised myself and arranged to be captured. I have just managed to free the slaves here, but more are held to the south. I will organize the slaves here while you free the others. Then we will arrange a diversion to allow the slaves a chance to escape."

□ Journal Entry 75

"I am the only one left from the ambush. I was knocked out early in the combat. By the time I came to, the enemy was gone. Caramon is dead. I figure that they must have ganged up on him first. His was the only body left behind. You don't want to know what condition they left him in. Evidently they wanted to leave a warning to anyone who comcs after him. It was awful. I laid him out as best I could and have been working my way out of Throtl. We must get back and warn the Outpost!

"I don't understand how they could have known that we were coming. The ambush was obviously well planned. They knew exactly who was with us and exactly how to counter any attack we could muster."

Base Commander's papers. You find:

A list of orders authorizing an attack on the knight's outpost.

A supply list, consisting mostly of implements of torture signed by someone known as the Prison Lord.

The final page is an order to turn all slain prisoners over to a Sir Lebaum.

□ Journal Entry 78

"Now, what do you know about that! They say that a real dragon lance has been found in the hills to the east. It also carries an enchantment that will force any dragon to your will if you but wound the beast.*

□ Journal Entry 79

Qravnak's story about the Quardian:

The oldest rulers of Kemen ordered the city's mages to create a deadly guardian for their castle. How they did it no one knows, but the magicians gave this thing to the king. Over the years it became unruly and was locked in the vaults below this building. We know of no way to harm it or chase it back to the vaults where it was kept. All we know is that an ancient tome in the library contains a recipe for a salve that will protect the wearer from the guardian's deadly bolts. You must construct this salve in the alchemist's study before you can succeed in passing the guardian."

□ Journal Entry 80

A few days after that, Stage three will begin. We have taken the pieces of the dragon orb that the kender shattered and have placed them in strategic spots all around Sanction. Raisflin's researches has determined that, under the right conditions, even a piece of the dragon orb can act as a powerful lure for dragons. Furthermore, each piece can be tuned to a particular type of dragon. He has been lost to us since the War, but his dark elf assistant has managed to create the spell out of Raistlin's notes. With our captured Dragonlances, we will destroy all the good dragons that remain in Krynn, and our final victory will then be all but assured.

"So! At last, you've come to rescue me. You know these things are quite clever. Not clever enough for me of course. I've just been improving them somewhat. Oh dear, I do hope you didn't come through from the North...oh, sorry.

"I suppose you'll be wanting to get me out of here now. Oh, there are more people back there. Shangbourn is around here somewhere. He's looking for Caramon.

Oh, you want to find him, well that's an interesting story, you see when we first got together about two weeks ago..,

"Uh, I can help, you know. Caramon was taken somewhere south of here. I've been trying to reset traps in case more draconians and hobgoblins get here.

"Why don't we team up, OKI"

"...we have contacted the minotaurs. They will help us. I must go to Qargath, It is rumored that there is a dragonlance stored there. We must secure the keep and find the treasure room that is hidden there. The map of the keep shows those places where we believe the secret door may be located. Qive this map to your officers and..."

□ Journal Entry 85

"The cavernous maw of the great beast is used as the entrance to the temple. The dragon's head is being artificially preserved through magic. We need the dragon's fangs in order to complete our spell. If they can be brought to us we can prevent draconians from ever...

"I am Angar, one of the real guards of the outpost. We were overrun about a week ago by a draconian army I was coming in from a patrol when I saw them taking over. They were everywhere..."

He slumps down on the bed. You notice that lie desperately needs food and rest, but he waves off your help and continues his story,

"I hid and they missed me, but they captured most of the other guards. They are being held in the outpost jail. Also, they're guarding the north side of town heavily. I think they might have hostages there too."

□ Journal Entry 88

"Just before the Temple of Duerghast was closed, dead bodies were seen being carried into the arena in the Temple's northwest comer. There were hundreds of them. It has been discovered that the Death Knight, Sir Lebaum, has taken over the Temple and has gathered together the exhumed dead for miles around.

"There is no way that you can get into the temple through the front gates. You must get the Shadowpeople's support. They have tunnels that cross from the Temple of Huerzyd to the Temple of Duerghast." She pulls out an amulet. This amulet will let you through a secret door. The Shadowpeople will find you once you enter Huerzyd."

TAVERN TALES

"Hey, Jorclack! You wanta' play tonight? I think we can get at least two other guys. I'm gonna win those steel pieces back from you."

3 Tavern Tale 2 "Even giants are being seen nearer the outpost. Qlad we have some rangers and dwarves in the company."

"Kernen can no longer be approached at all. Too many dragons in the air."

Hey, Jorclack! What in blazes were you doing up in the slum area! You rubbin' shoulders with the local scum!"

There are secret doors that lead into the old entrance to the keep. The Draconians have built up around the entrance in order to prevent people from getting into it,"

"The Castellan of Qargath was rumored to be holding a dragonlance in one of his treasure rooms. With it we can prevail against the evil dragons."

"Here's a drink to all the knights buried in Jelek's graveyard,- may they rest in peace forever."

Minotaur Tavern Keeper

"I hear that they're gonna be hiring mercenaries down in Sanction. I say we get out of this hick town and go down to where the real action is."

"Strange how those folks in Jelek fooled us so well. Evil has always been skilled at duplicity."

"I hear that Sanction is slowly being infested with Ogres, Minotaurs and Draconians. The Temple of Puerghast is even showing signs of life. It would be an dark day indeed if that place comes back."

"It's good to see that Jelek is holding against the tide of evil."

"We've been finding lots of emptied graves. Someone is collecting bodies."

"With Sir Dargaard's treasure rescued, we are sure to push the draconians back."

"Those blasted Minotaurs have taken over the entire western section of town! The docks are almost completely under their control. Those that aren't are the pleasure boat docks that don't have any warehouses. How am I supposed to get my lumber into the city if I can't use the port! Things are going from bad to worse down here. I should have stayed in Jelek."

"Enemy scouts have been patrolling closer to the outposts. They'll be on the run when the good armies get there."

"Now lissen here, yer Red Dragon is by far the best at nose-to-nose, claw-to-claw fightin'. But for breathin", gimme a green any day."

"A young woman has her eye on Sir Karl. Its making him uncomfortable."

"Maya's on the warpath, she's always been sweet on Sir Karl."

  • Tavern Tale 19 "Draconians have been seen near Throtl. Tilings are heating up."
  • Tavern Tale 20

"...There's something weird going on here. My son was saying that he saw a zombie. I told him he was crazy...but I don't know, he's not usually given to making up stories..."

"...so I was sayin', why we gotta do all this stuff! Why don't we just go down there and take the thing! And you know what, that's exactly what we did. That Lance is ours! Of course, my officer took all the credit for himself. Cretin. He couldn't hold the dull end of a sword if he didn't have us to teach him..."

  • Tavern Tale 22
  • Throtl is starting to crawl with monsters. Some of our scouts have been harassed."
  • Tavern Tale 23

"Its been too quiet for too long. Something's got to happen soon."

"Scouts are starting to report evil forces on the march everywhere."

"Enemy patrols hold most of the cities in the area. Hope the army gets here soon. It's galling to let them operate so openly."

"It's a shame that people on our side could just abandon the slaves that way."

Wagon Train Having Party

"The slaughtered wagon train was carrying a magic tome. Perhaps it held the secret of the corruption process."

"The evil forces have dragon eggs, We can look forward to more draconians if they can rediscover the corruption process."

"Once the armies are here, we will sweep the area clean of evil for the final time."

"I thought that the good armies had destroyed the Draconians! Well it just goes to show you can t trust anyone anymore. Where are the Solamnic Knights now! Why weren't they here when those foul reptiles took over our town."

"...I tell you that grave was breathin'! The dirt was risin' up and down, just like it was takin' in air. I lit outa there as fast as these stumpy legs couid carry me..."

"... a silver dragon! They say they loved each other but how do you figure! What can a man and a dragon do! I don't know. I got sick and tired of all the moping about."

"It's a shame about Sir Karl though. They say he was killed up north somewhere. He was an OK guy, Treated you right."

"We got the fires out, but the enemy escaped with Sir Karl. Those Auraks can control the minds of our toughest people."

"Nothing's been seen in Ttirotl for months. The place is boring."

  • Tavern Tale 35 "Annoying guides they give you in Jelek, but I suppose they can't be too careful."
  • Tavern Tale 36

"A moment of silence for Sir Karl, a brave Knight of the Rose. He truly followed the Oath and the Measure."

"The draconians were led by an Aurak. They're very deadly."

"I wonder if they could have saved Sir Karl's life if they tried harder,"

"I tell you I saw dragons! They were flying around the top of the keep! Black ones they were. Except for one real big one. I think it was a red."

"Don't drink the beer. The bartender washes his feet in it."

"No, he never came back, He was on a boat that went out onto the Blood Sea of Istar and never came back. Somebody said they actually went down the Maelstrom.,.but that's crazy, nobody would sail close to that thing...anyway I haven't been able..."

  • Tavern Tale 42 "What ever happened to that Dragonlance that the Castellan had during the last war? I know for a fact that it was never returned to the good armies. Blast it man, I was with the Castellan's armorer, all of the weapons went through us and that Dragonlance was never returned!"
  • Tavern Tale 43

The enemy's rear guard was seen heading south. Too bad most of us are stuck guarding this outpost, we could chase them down in a few days."

"Qargath is crawling with evil forces. Hopefully Caramon can raise the armies quickly."

"I've heard they ignored Sir Karl's last wish and let the slaves fend for themselves."

"It was the strangest thing. I was walking past the old building by the graveyard, you know, the one with no door on this side, and I was hit by an incredibly cold wind. You know how warm it was yesterday. It only hit me for a second, but it was scary."

J Tavern Tale 47 "The armies will be here soon. This lime it will be a quick war. The evil forces can't compete."

"...yeah, I went to see the guy. He said he didn't need tired old scum! The bleepard said nobody who lives in Sanction is good enough for his army. He's spread the word that professional soldiers are needed. Humph. Didn't I fight with Tanis and Caramon in the last war! ... Scum, he said!"

"I've heard that Caramon has gotten the first elements of the army on the march. They'll soon be here,"

"...every graveyard within a hundred miles of this place has been looted. Qraves left open, tombs cracked and broken. It's eerie. Funny thing though, a lot of the valuable stuff has been left behind. Weapons and armor was gone, but any jewelry or other items of value that was buried along with them is still there.

Another thing, some of these tombs look as if they were opened from the inside..."

"Yeah, Sanction is gonna start up trade again. Me and Lancrent are gonna go down there and start up our lumber import business again. The docks are rebuilt and open for business."

  • Tavern Tale 52
  • Too bad about all those slaves in Neraka, slaughtered and hauled off and enslaved again as undead."
  • Tavern Tale 53

"...the Shadowpeople are still around. They say they've got tunnels that run all around underneath the city. That captain that's trying to hire mercenaries is pumping people for information about the Shadowpeople and their tunnels. He's stupid though. Nobody finds those tunnels if the Shadow-people don't want 'em found—at least, if they're found, nobody returns to tell about it."

"It was a good thing they found the good dragon eggs in the prison. I've heard that the good dragons are heading down because of that."

That was the draconian leader that led the attack. He's an Aurak named Myrtani."

"Who are these guys that have taken over? I see soldiers with the number 101 tattooed on their arms. What gives!"

Those rescued slaves had horrible stories to tell. We're sure glad they were helped to escape."
