Confounding mash up, if Aule had not spoken for Erde, might just not agree to this mission. Nearly ready to hack of arm of stupid half-orc that came rumbling up, and grabbing my arm. And grouping with couple of sissy namby elf's, Uvarum and Putzmeister, papa said no accounting for elves what they just might take a bad view upon. Plus gotta wanna-be-elf human Imlazor, sheesh supposedly magicy caster. Not sure if gonna make it. The human, Bawdy, seems bit high strung female. Sad party to be grouping together, me included. And WE are gonna save the world?!!?!? I would say gods laughing in jest if not for Aule visit. Got go smoke my pipe and calms me down somes.
