I wish you could have been here. I am in the middle of an awesome adventure. I went to the docks and as I was sneaking up to the ship Felix showed up. He had these really cool enchanted puppeteer strings. He could control the dock workers. It is pretty awesome. He later gave me one in exchange for me to take some magical boots to a friend of his in Dinu. Since, my group of explores were already going there it was an easy bargain. I figured I could wear them around until then. A bad idea as it turns out. Anyway, back to the docks. I opened one of the chests and it was filled with gold. I took some out and showed it to Felix for him to identify. He said that it was gold. So I opened the next one. It only contained gold. I took a small vial of it to show my companions proof of my tale. It appears that my friend was misinformed about Celius. I was really lucky, as I often am, because just after we got off the boat the ship inspectors came to put a paper seal on the crates.
After recounting my experience to my companions we went to the docks to relieve the previous hired hands. We were told that these men might retaliate. I figured that they wouldn’t attack a messenger since it could get back to Celius and that could be bad for them. However, I was wrong. I confronted them and they attacked. Unfortunately, I was standing right next to them when they decided to attack. And even more unfortunate when they hit me the boots that I was wearing(from Felix) started to force me to dance. All I could do was dance with a shocked expression on my face. But once again luck shined on me. Even though the men were in-front of me they didn’t attack. They reacted just like I would have, they laughed! As you might imagine the shoes are cursed. And guess what? They don’t come off. That’s just annoying! Well, it was a rough battle, and we were aided by an unseen friend, but we won and the living men were taken into custody.
We sailed the next morning for Dinu. One of the nights we were attacked by boars. But other than that the adventure passed without much excitement. And we arrived in Dinu.
