    Cervia Polonosa, The First Mother

    Cervia Polonosa, The First Mother

    It's clear to me now that the desperate demeanor of these men is fed by their realization that there are no women to be found. With no women, there are no children. And with no children, every man acquires an implicit realization that he has nothing to live for other than his next meal.

    I rounded a sharp curve and spilled suddenly into a huge chamber - and I was immediately overcome with awe and emotion. Here, upon thousands of meters of cave walls, polished specifically for this purpose, were thousands of Nokmeni letters, each glowing faintly in the dark with hues of amber, magenta, and emerald. And though my Nokmeni is rough, to say the least, it was immediately evident that these were no "cave drawings". No "pictograms" or "hieroglyphs". This was literature. An epic saga spilled across these regal walls for no greater purpose than to stir the soul.

With murderous abandon, every Inqoan spent the better part of the next hour reaching into the barrels, extracting a squirming creature, and tearing into the live flesh with their dagger-like teeth. The air was thick with slurping, cracking, and other sounds of active oral butchery. I thought Holoran was going to faint. Abelin completely lost his appetite.

    If Le Cong's old maan'd been a bit quicker bout his wits, we might all know if barbecued sceramanth is a tasty treat.

    Scoff if you will. But I've pored over Le Cong's mundane accounts and I ask you: Where's the lie?

    We must strike now and destroy them while they're still at sea. For if we allow them to make landfall, the Elladorans will cut through our men like a hot iron through grease.

    I was truly praying that we could somehow avoid any mention of the hideous creature sitting, lifeless, in the corner, throughout my entire stay. But when I found that the fatback had gone rancid and I meant to toss it in the waste heap, Tozan stayed my hand, motioned to the silent ghoul, and said it'd be just fine for him to munch on later.

    This investigation is going nowhere and I think it's about time we talk to the Sylvans. If they don't know anything about it, then it never really happened.

    When the blast occurred, my first instinct was to search for Toridor. And indeed, my heart swelled with hope when I first spotted his longboots strewn amongst the destruction. But then I realized that they still contained his feet.

    The Inqoans insist on calling this city Carca. Near as I can tell, it's the Sovereign Metropolis of the Scarlet Bottonfly Company.

    Every day I see them. Loading their meager carts to the breaking point - with moss. Fetid, rotting, stinking, bog moss.
