Tips and Misc
- Potentially up to two animated chests - Mimic (Does not appear in the same spot)
- The Journal Pages read (They seem to appear on different spots):
- (1) The Netherese and I have been playing a game of cat and mouse since I stole their Nether Scroll back in Wheloon. Only each of us is cat and mouse, both. If I can dodge their assassins a bit longer, I may be on to something.
- (2) Defeated a rather brutish agent of the Netherese last night. I have his staff and some papers. The staff is dangerous. I will trust it to my friend Halsaime for safe-keeping. And with luck, these papers will bear fruit.
- (3) At last, I've made some headway with these damned papers. They were magically concealed, of course. What they reveal is beyond troubling! It seems I will be making an expedition to the Storm Horns on their account. Alas, I'll have little time for picnics or fox-hunting while I'm there.
- (4) They have seen me now, I'm certain of it. It was a great risk, but well worth the trouble. I have learned there is something underway high at the mountain's summit. If what I fear is true... I must hope my message reaches the Harpers and they send someone. For now, I wait and hide. The Netherese are ever on my trail.
- (5) I must keep searching. Somewhere there is an answer. To gather an army of rough brutes and simply march on Cormyr - it is unlike the Netherese. There is some trick, some clever feint woven into this. There must be an answer, and I will find it.
- (6) It was only in the last tenday that I at last set foot in the Storm Horns. These lands seems thick with Netherese assassins, and I fear my presence has not gone entirely unnoticed. Still, I am here, and not a moment too soon...
- (7) My first discovery - an army of giants, orcs, and other monstrous creatures, gathering under the cover the of the mountain. There can be no doubt, they plan to invade Cormyr. I must get word to the Harpers at the very first opportunity I find.
- (8) To bring such disparate monsters into one organized army - what bribes and threats must the Netherese have used? How strong are those bonds, I wonder. I must pray a weak link may be found.
