Rav's journal(p21 on, bandwidth warning/pictures)
(entered jan 26/04..or near then)
This is the journal of Rav (Saturday March 6/04)
- the inside cover has pictures of home and family sketched in it, average and happy, there are no tragic notes or drawings*
(note the full names are the characters names, but unless noted i do not know the full name, i have only heard the first names or no name at all in some cases, they are only there for reference purposes, each name takes up its own page and is an individual acurate sketch of the person described, exept where noted)
(I decided to put this list up because I have had interaction with several individuals and have showed them the book, or parts of it, this is so that those i have met know what they were looking at or rather who)
- Note: they are in order they have been drawn and any i have shown the book will not have seen any pages beyond theirs unless I have showed them the book at a later date(eg:1 Bren Boger char name=Bren name under picture in cases where there is a decription that is also added, but use good judgement in translating it)*
all entries are done in charcoal (in the field book..see below..second book added with pen drawings)(in time when i figure out how to do the actual posting pictures..i may put some up)Note: i have figured out how to post pictures, they are on page 21 onward, and no entry will be made from that point forward that is a drawing that will not have a accompanying sketch

(march 17/2004 about 6 pm)
note transcribed below last drawing "field book" book 1(the one i show unless noted)
I have just noticed that my drawings have become my obsession now..to the point..where i take tasks..fully intending to complete them..but i am distracted before i can even do some of them..ok..i do get the odd job done..but i cannot remember how many i leave unfinished..i hope this does not effect my relationships with those with whom i rely upon getting gold to pay my way in the city
note: spend more time with friends, and try to finish the jobs you take!
the next part though legible has stroke marks through it..unless of course a opurtunity to draw presents itself
(march 19/2004 AM early)
144 Sprig Shadowstep=heard sprig, in picture he is talking to Regdan..who looks handsome in the drawing.(( Regdan is wearing armor in this picture..though he was actually wearing a tunic at the time..and apparantly his armor is quite dented..but you can not tell that from the picture..he looks a proper knight in shining armor!))
145 a picture given to me drawn by bug!((papers in the NE section))
how sweet of him
146 a picture of Smash and Bug standing side by side with pleasant smiles on thier faces (this did not happen..i took artistic licence after the fact, they had met and we had a very nice visit with them)
I have to tell Natassia all about Regdan….he is so very very nice..i am sure she will like him and approve of him((carelessly writing this in my book of pictures))
also i had overheard that there were lizard men loose in the city..i would have like to have seen one...just so i could draw it..but they sound dangerous..so that may not happen too soon..i headed to the inn when i heard that there may be the chance of more lizard men roaming the city.
i felt safe none the less..Regdan was there to protect me..and i could see the guards preparing for the worst too.
(sunday march 28th 2004 late sat/early sunday)
147 Quin Undry=did not hear name..notation mentions he was proclaming helm in the market..and several people stopped to listen to him, he said something about some lord Ao, and gods being stripped of their power, i was drawing and did not really pay too much attention(he is standing one hand out )..he is a good at talking. Too bad i did not really listen..
148 Mongo Rish= heard name, talking to Melody Ravenhair, accused her of murder…what a proposterous notion..he is obviously mad! Melody is a nice person! (picture melody looks nice and calm whereas Mongo looks threatening)
149 Larry Colt= heard name larry, refers to self as lurry, he is in the picture having a heated debate with Spooko (a hin no name heard)and he is only drawn as a hooded figure no face seen...these others seem to be larrys friends Caldur Rydrion(no name heard) and Mongo rish(see 147)...all are foaming at the mouth in the picture..i think they were friends having a friendly debate..i do not know who is trying to fight who ..or who is trying to stop it...i will draw them all with angry looks on thier faces...they did not notice me drawing
150 Mariah Jabinsdotter= from Cormye village called nothtrine-ex farmer was very nice! there is a very nice flattering picture of her in the book
151 Ghost windwalker= heard name ghost(met him)..was looking for a smith..i was not able to help him...and i have been in the city for quite some time..this is embaressing..but he was nice though in spite of my lack of local knowledge...i know many people and what they look like..but ask me simple directions....
152 Storm= him and smash are talking in the drawing..though it happened in the evening, i drew it as a daytime event, heard his name "storm"
153 Picture of Seren and Storm in the vistor center, she is sitting at the table and he is standing beside her..both are smiling and look very pleasant (and handsome/pretty) (note=told them my thoery about the inn keeper and the hin! also told melody and i think Elriel)
154 Maureen Virginia=met her a nice drawing of her in the book.(told her my thoery of the inn keeper and the hin) (i hope my spreading the theory of the inn keeper and the hin does not get anyone into trouble...i think what they are doing is harmless..and they may be hiding it because it may be an embarressing trade they have engaged in)
I looked for Natassia today..but did not find her, i hope she is ok..i told Melanie to tell her I wanted to say hello. also i was looking for Regdan, and i failed at meeting him also...i miss both of them...but at least with Natassia..taking to her sister is calming, she looks so much like Natassia!
I will keep looking to see both of them..but till I do I have my art to keep me busy...today was another very productive day, and i was able to show my art to several people, that made me fell very good! (note these musings are at the bottom of the page of the last picture, below its description)

155 a drawing of the gathering for "a magic sending by karl talanscor at the bhaliir auction in the estate courtyard south arabel..followed by a bounty competition ..had to go inside because of the rain, what a nice building, and good thing the rain would have prevented me from doing any drawings

/Andrik(wore blue)/Karl Talanscor(N- a scowling picture of him)(wore blue)/Tal Hammers/ Melanie Rift(N- very beautiful drawing..more time spent on this drawing than the others)/ Svenn Ruelle (wore blue) /Rose(N=heard name) / Bhodi Casterfule / Corthol Galidith / Lucian / Tal Hammers / Dell Nothan / Gragor Storm / Kuenry / Mark Wilson(N) / Eamon Rhudaur (wore blue, note.hooded no face) / She'nn Aredhel / Merlock Craven(N=heard name ..well first name he wore red) /Zach Reyne / Pyro(hooded figure no face) / Vind Feren(N) / Shane Tyszaar (hooded)/

157 A picture of Regdan wearing his new armor..looking heroic(* this next notation is in Vidurs copy only book 3, told Regdan i was assosiated with H..note mushy stuff is not in book 3 only in book one and two)
158 Regdan, Astarn , and Gorgen Talbot(heard name from Regdan) figthing Mephits in town they all look herioc and the mephits looked angry and twisted..larger than they actually were (note says they were imps, but i am sure they had to be some kind of terrible devils) (note: Astarn was wearing his helmet in the encounter, but in the drawing he is not wearing one) regdan and I were on our way to the purple dragon garrison for some kind of a contest when we happened yupon these horrible devils in front of a building, Regdan engaged them first and happily Astarn and Gorgen came to our aid (along with a wonderfull wizard who was very instrumental in their destruction..i did not get a drawing of her..but i am greatfull to her and to the others)
I hope Regdan feels for me as I do for him, and i am sure he does!
(monday march 29 2004 early in the am)
159 Perry Strumin(no name a hin) talking with Smash
he said "ya know a story untold is a story unsold i'll make a profit i shall" it sounded so neat i had to write it down and sketch it, standing beside them is Laioric "deathwind" T'laeren (i think his name is ric)….the picture is a flattering one of all 3 involved..what (perry ) said put me into a good mood!
160 Dyna Sprithart=(introduced, dyna) met her in the temple and drew a nice picture of her.
I stumbled upon them all when i was looking for Natassia to show her the ring that Regdan had given me, and i wanted to tell her all about him and what we did and seen, and i want to show her the pictures that i have done since we last met, i had heard she was in the city, but i suppose it could have been Melanie since some may not know them one from the other, at any rate i had a nice visit with Melanie and showed her everything.
(monday march 29 2004 4:30pm )
161 Tyna= heard name ..drawing is of her sitting on floor in market cover beside a almax Andarion and domino almax (no names by the last 2)
163 corpse of Drudo Bretyad ..he tried to rob from the dwarven smith, picture has Regdan and Oliver Baba (introduced is very nice)standing over his corpse (thief looks twisted and scowling in death, whereas Regdan and Oliver look heroic, they were not the ones who did this to him, they helped afterwards)
164 Picture of Smash(named), Corthol Galidith (heard whole name), and Sarafin Fal'shyn (only heard first name) , notation says names and also says they were on a mission to help a porr lad to get his belongings back (Smashs drawing he looks nicer and less menacing than in earlier drawings..but the underlying theme of him being big and formidable still continues in the drawing)

165 hope= heard name , drawing is done from memory(no drawn in person) so not quite as accurate as it could be(rain stopped) drew Peri standing by her.she is wearing a hat..but the drawing depicts her(hope) as cute.

(wednesday march 31 2004 10pm or so)
166 met Smash, drew him talking to Tonia Redweth in the market(heard tonia's first name)
167 ..i seen a man kill himself..it was awful..rapidly sketched drawing of (Durag LeSaber)(drawing was done with a shaking hand..) i tried to yell out for him to stop..but he did not hear me..i do not think anyone did..it was so sad
168 Mark wilson (heard first name)..drew him standing in market wearing armor..note says he was selling longswords..also in the drawing is Aedon kilcannon (heard first name) he is wearing armor, drew them standing beside each other even though they were not…more artistic license
169 Sagri whisper(met introduced..drawn from memory..it was raining)also a memory drawing of silver(heard name..grrr...rain..)
170 Kurtak (heard name) Del Nottian(heard first name) shandrea Fallcoat (heard first name)and Parenfel Aluvianand (no name by drawing)and silvianus Zephermedre (heard name as miss silvainus) all were standing close together in market, even tough engaged in different conversations..drawn on same page..people were quite upset that they wereorcs or something..they could not be real orcs..they are raging and dangerous..these were half orcs..i hope
171 draws larry colt (name lurry ) fighting gruk(heard name)..lurry said something about orcs, it was awfull....fighting in public like that...but he did look like an orc (gruk looks more orc like in picture than in real life..and somewhat larger and menacing) they both got thrown into jail..served them right
172 lil bill colt (no name but refered to lurry as daddi) seemed like an awful little kid..well..not so little..a large and rather ugly child..or a handsome dwarf...
173 Tyro and Jack Napier(heard jack introduced and tyro) sitting in the inn..at a table, they were taking about a memorial of somekind, drawn beside them is Theo Kain (no name)(he was at another table, but i took artistic license and put him at thier table) we talked for quite a while..i hope i can make it to the contest they are putting on, Tyro is a artist of some great skill also, i learned quite bit looking at his drawings, his treatment of shadows is efficent and unique..i shall copy that style from now on
i did not see Regdan or Natassia, but i did see melody, she is so sweet, she let me know she had seen Natassia...i cannot wait to show Natassia my ring...oh rats..i should have shown it to melody...i will have to ask her forgiveness that was rude of me..at any rate i was so busy doing my art work..i completely forgot to solve that puzzle book yet again! i bet i never get it figured out..even though it seems rather easy..well my art is what is important, note i tried to talk to the warden again..but he was really busy so i asked him once..then left..poor guy, he must be run ragged with all the paper work

174 a picture of a half dragon, standing taking to Regdan, she (zuzizalthy'ridan) has wings! (i heard her father is a copper dragon)(no name accompanies the picture) alot of people were interested in her, she seemed quite popular
175 Maureen Virginia (heard first name) talking to smash in the picture also in the picture is Silvianus(named)(note: she looked at[that is all that is noted under her portrait a cryptic message that means only something to me]), also Krusk (heard name ) taking to them also..plus kasev(heard first name)..he has horns..is he a goatsman like Bug described? Rashan(i may have heard the first name, but i forgot it _)..though they were not all together at the same time..they are drawn together…another bit of artistic license.
Regdan and i must have stood on the street for an hour or so..but it seemed like minutes...we hugged..it was wonderful!_
(monday April 5/2004 5:00pm)
I just wandered around the city..read the notices on the boards, i did not draw any pictures today, i guess i am too depressed. I was not able to make it into the pagent yesterday, there were so many people in front of the bath house, and the crowd outside was so loud..i do not think anyone heard me..i could not get anyones attention to let me in. i read in a notice that Natassia won the event, that does not surprise me..but it has not cheered me up much..and i thought that hearing that she won would..i guess my own desire to win has spoiled my attitude, i really should be happy that she won..instead i am sad that i was not able to compete.
it rained more today, part of the reason i did not draw, and part of why i am depressed. i did see smash and a bunch of people talking about going on a caravan or something like that, I tried to find some work to do to keep myself busy, but the notices on the boards have me so scared of exploring..knowing that many in the market crowds are thugs looking to rob unsuspecting people. so i kept to the well lit areas always with a guard within sight.
the sad thing is that i seen many new faces that i had not drawn before…usually i jump at the chance to draw new faces...but this rain.it makes it so hard to draw in the open.
I looked around to see if i could find Regdan i did not find him. I also looked for Natassia and Melonie, seeing any of them would have raised my spirits.
((draws a picture finally..a self portrait sitting in the inn looking very sad))
(wednesday April 7th 9:00pm)
176 Gammergun Glimmergrin(heard name as Gamm) talking to Orax "the bloodflame* he is seated by a fountain
"Gamm and Orax, they were talking about using magics and stuff they must be wizards" also in picture is Elriel Gellana(heard first name)she is wearing armor "note=shortly after the picture was completed someone fired arrows at orax and elriel, i hid behind a crate while they ran i the direction of the arrows, i did over hear that Rak had died,by ogres i heard, that is so bad, and i never had a chance to draw him smiling, ..wait i heard he was raised from the dead..i will get a chance after all"
177 Drom Bescha(heard first name) talking to Astarn(he is drawn without a helmet..and this time he was not wearing one!) about the arrow attack.."i did not see who shot the arrows..as when i realized what was happening …i ran and hid behind some large crates..while everyone else ran bravely towards where the arrows came from"
178 Natassia wearing new dress, looking very beautiful, says "pagent winner"
179 a drawing of Natassia(looking herioc) fighting an allip, with a zombie and a skeleton standing there too..also around the ground are a pile of vanquished skeleton and zombies "we went into parners, Natassia vanquished at least a dozen of these different opponents, it is too bad i was not of much help, she is as deadly with a sword as she is presentable at any pagent...i do not know how i made it out alive from there, i can only attribute it to Natassia's skill and to her God Lathander, she yelled "FOR LATHANDER" before facing the foul things"
"i showed Natassia the ring Regdan gave me, she had mentioned that she had met him, I am so happy that she liked the ring and she seemed to approve of Regdan, though i did not ask her directly (OOC=she will have read this as i have carelessly included thoughts with the drawings..and Natassia was shown the book after this drawing was completed)
(friday april 9th 2004..i think..)
note there are some drawings in the book that will be added to this entry once..these pictures have been lost forever..as my field book was destroyed before they could be copied over [my journal was empied in a crash] so i had to reconstruct my field book using drawings from the pen and ink book as a guide…[the drawings in the new field book will be of better quality than the original one..since i have had lots of practice
I recieved devestating news yesterday note it written the day after the news was recieved A small man walked up to me and asked if i knew Regdan.
my immediate thoughts were that he was going to inform me that Regdan was was setting up a meeting for me, instead he told me that he Regdan was dead..he mentioned that some gnomes we going to try and bring him back..but...
, i was devistated and i stumbled around for what seemed like a day, i do not remember much of that day..i remember wandering around the city lost, i remember i must have fainted, or fallen down a lot as my legs are all bruised and cut up..the day was a blur of tears..and i do remember being several diffent places.
i also remember Tyro and Emma consoling me, Emma gave me a nice yellow dress..i was wearing rags..as i felt i did not deserve to be dressed nicely..and Tyro gave me more gold that i can ever remember seeing in one place, to help bring back regdan..i am feeling a bit better today..i do not know what i will tell Natassia, i had just shown her the ring Regdan had given me, and i wanted XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXindicates that what was written is scribbled out
