The events of today have been most unusual. Traveling between towns, I was beset by a group of ankheg. I readied my defenses. Not even a second had passed when, like divine intervention, a band of adventures charged in to my side. We swiftly defeated the insectoids, but the difficult part was not yet over. Introductions with the group members were…difficult. The assassin greeted me with a dagger. However, I was indebted to them, and with no present task to aide them, I was bound to follow them.
The party seems to be co-led by a psychic halfdrow and a grimy highelf assassin. The others include a monk of a sect I've never seen, a stout dwarf woman who seems to be the butt of many jokes, and another man who has not said much yet. I wasn't sure if I was making the right decision, but Mother never trips or trods within the garden of her children, and I was indebted to them.
We arrived in a city, much larger than I ever like. The townsfolk always have so many problems I can solve, but I can only solve so much, and they always want more. Only in small towns are people actually grateful. However, at present I didn't have much choice, nor was I currently my usual unbound missionary. We entered a church, wherein I went my Mother's altar and said a prayer of thanks, for the aide that she sent me. Afterwards, we met with a woman named Lorelei, who gave us a list of Protectors who are Red Tide members. I do not know who the Red Tide are, besides the fact that their name should not be said aloud. The rest of the group seems very keen on killing this list of people. Despite my lack of knowledge, I am certain this is in the best interest of our souls.
Departing from the church, we began tavern-diving in hopes of finding a lead to our first target, a man who runs an incestual sex den. I would've stuck out like a sore thumb asking around for a brothel while wearing clerical symbols, so I went from table to table seeing if I could aide anyone in small matters while I let the assassin do his job. Upon seeing the psychic take his leave, I assumed we got what we came for. I dismissed myself after finishing healing a man's hands and waited outside for the rogue. A questionably long time later he emerged, and we proceeded to our next destination.
