Redgar and Syphacia come to Sandpoint

From the Journal of Redgar Ironhand

It looks like we’ll be heading into the town of Sandpoint in a day and a half for the Swallowtail festival, and let me tell you this dwarf is looking forward to it. It’s been nearly a month since we’ve seen any real civilization, and while that keeps Sy happy enough, I’m ready for something other than burnt venison to fill my stomach.

The Swallowtail Festival - Morning

The Swallowtail Festival is normally a bustling day for Sandpoint and this one is not only bustling, it’s positively bursting with activity as people come from the surrounding region to see the consecration of Sandpoint Cathedral.

The Swallowtail Festival - Lunch

At lunchtime, the people once again begin to stream back into the square before the cathedral. Delightful smells are wafting through the air and Father Zantus is directing a pair of young men who are wheeling a cart to just in front of the podium. Tables and benches are being set out and the smells are emanating from a series of booths, manned by the various tavern owners.

Redgar Contemplates his Destiny

From the Journal of Redgar Ironhand:

I’ve never given much credit to fortunes or destinies. If the Forgelord’s taught me anything, it’s that we can make ourselves into whatever we want to be-it’s only a matter of hard work, vision, and patience. We are both the metal in the tongs and the hammer that shapes it. Each of us has the power forge ourselves into whatever purpose we see fit.

A catchy tune
Haunted by scratchy singing

The song the goblin warchanters were singing to inspire the raiders is maddeningly memorable and haunts you in your quieter moments:

Aramil's journal

This group of adventurers that I have found myself in the company of seem rather strange. While my thoughts are still aglow with Katilyn’s companionship who I acquisitioned earlier this night (as well as my clothes aglow with her “perfume”), I will try and get this all down while it is fresh in my head.

Syphacia's opinions of Sandpoint

From Syphacia’s Letters:

Lorelein,

Remember three months ago when I wrote about how Redgar had led us into a swamp (against my urgings) where the leeches, ticks, and mosquitoes conspired to try to devour us? Remember me griping about choke weed in my hair and brier quills in my boots? Remember how I wrote that there couldn’t possibly be a more miserable way to spend a week? I was wrong. This is worse.

Coram's Journal pt. 1

I don’t believe this.  No, really, I don’t.  How the hell did this happen?

A Dwarf in a Dark Place

My father told me once that “Haste should never be a motivation, and patience should never be an excuse.” At the time I thought he was only speaking of the art of metalcraft, but since then I’ve come to realize that the same reasoning can be applied to all of life’s decisions. I find myself now in a position where further haste could lead me to my doom, and too much patience could very well bring the same. The question then is what is right, what is wise, and which will I choose?

Emmalyn's Diary, Part 1
Tell me again how I ended up here?

I’ve never felt the need to keep a journal before. After all, life has never been very exciting. Why would I want to look back on the finer details of the hours the actors spent arguing over blocking or the quiet nights at home with mum? Now, however, events are strange, people have died, and I find myself in odd company.
