DAYSMAP
    Sonday, Januar 28th:
While Sir John the Indomitable travels in North Cehaig, he meets a short villager in a town. She tells Sir John of rumors that a deadly monstrosity feeds upon people somewhere in the town of West Cehaig, 14 days ride away.

Sir John the Indomitable makes an oath to do away with this fell peril.

I don't know why Sir John insisted on travelling in Cehaig. That's Popeye's enemy, isn't it?

Anyway. We're sort of a blueblooded troupe; Cyril and Luke are old school chums, having graduated first from Harrveert, majoring in Standard Baring and Friaring, respectively. Alexander is one of their old drinking buddies.

Sir John, however, went to the school of hard knocks...that's why he's so bold.

    Moonsday, Januar 29th:
Sir John the Indomitable ventures to the west without incident through a plain in North Cehaig

Ah, plains. You can see menaces from quite some distance away, so, if there were any snakes or anything, you'd know about it.

    Twosday, Januar 30th:
Traveling west, Sir John the Indomitable comes upon a spotty peasant in a plain in North Cehaig.

Cyril the Standard-Barer boasts to him. The peasant is stunned.


Dan Spotty, this peasant we ran into, asked us if we could spare a radish for him to gnaw on, as he hadn't eaten in days. Cyril gave him a ritz cracker with caviar on it. The Dan was a little taken aback, and tried to sell it to Luke for a chicken.

    Wedday, Febuar 1st to Friarday, Febuar 3rd:
Sir John the Indomitable voyages to the south without incident, from a plain in North-West Cehaig to a swamp in North-West Cehaig.

So, Sir John's masochism is getting a little irritating. Not only did he decide not to stop in at Dan Spotty's farm (Alexander said there was a hoppin' alehouse there), but, when plotting our path south, he deliberately skipped BOTH the town AND the farm and went straight into the swamp. Friar Luke is ministering to his mosquito bites with a small flask marked "alkeehawl"

    Satyrday, Febuar 4th:
Journeying south, Sir John meets a thug in a plain in North-West Cehaig.

Sir John is more than a match for the thug. Sir John the Indomitable has decapitated the thug!

Well, I guess Sir John's indomintability has stood up to its first test. But how are we going to fair going through these mountains? Cyril and Luke already get seasick when their horses (Porshe and Lamborgini, respectively. They bought them from an italian horsesmith) tromp along the level ground of the plains.

    Sonday, Febuar 5th:
Traveling south, Sir John the Indomitable encounters a black-haired hermit in a mountains in West Cehaig.

Cyril the Standard-Barer talks shop with him. The hermit tells Cyril about being a hermit.


The hermit business is evidently quite lucrative. He rakes in over 20 eagle eggs a week, and sells them for sport hawkers at a tidy profit.

    Moonsday, Febuar 6th:
Sir John the Indomitable goes to the south eventlessly through a mountains in West Cehaig

A lot less puking than I expected on this mountain crossing. One could accredit it to Alexander's horse-mounted distillery, I suppose.

    Twosday, Febuar 7th:
Rambling south, Sir John the Indomitable meets a venerable traveler in a plain in West Cehaig.

Luke the Friar shoves him. The traveler runs away.


On the downside, Luke is a mean drunk; he shoved an old man who said that he was a Yeole alumni.

    Wedday, Febuar 8th to Satyrday, Febuar 11th:
Sir John the Indomitable ventures to the south-west peacefully through the mountains of West Cehaig.

Cyril sent carrier pidgeon off to his family, who sent a hot air balloon cart us across the rest of the mountains. The highlight of our trip was when Luke got drunk and blew chunks over the edge of the balloon compartment, and it hit a mountain goat. That gives you some idea of how exciting a trip it was.

    Sonday, Febuar 12th:
Sir John the Indomitable reaches the town of West Cehaig and finds a pernicious thug.

The thug's skill is superior to Sir John's skill, furthermore the thug's strength is countered by Sir John, but Sir John's ruse outdoes the thug. Sir John the Indomitable has defeated the thug!


Huh. Pernicious? He just tried to horsejack Alexander and steal his ride. Sir John is sort of let down; he knows he's indomitable, but he would have liked a better opportunity to show his mettle.

Fortunately we didn't have to deal with The Cehaig. She's scary.
