I arrived safely at Saerdan’s cabin, and he has sent me on many expeditions to harass and harry brigands and orcs that skulk about, apparently under the command of the scoundrel, Sharkey. I have learned much from Saerdan and consider him a great friend and mentor. I am so blessed to be able to serve such worthy leaders of men and do the little I can in our fight against those who would oppress us.
I wait for darkness to fall before I will set off toward an encampment far to the north of here called Cirith Nur. I hope to put a dent in the enemy’s forces before we engage them full on. Wish me luck, friends!
