Today was a busy day! Sakia sent us some wine. The one she sent for me was good, the one she sent for Jaellynn… not so much. He said it was called embalming fluid. I hope that’s not really what it was.
We went to Crystalsong Forest to study the ghost druids there. It was fascinating! There are living satyrs and dryads, though the dryads seem to be corrupted and hostile. All of them, including the ghosts, have blue eyes like Jaellynn’s. Most of the ghost druids are female. I have no idea how this is so. The ruins looked old, but the ghosts must be new? Some of the warriors are males, but not very many. There were some male hunters too, riding on ghostly sabers. I asked Jaellynn what happened here but he either didn’t hear me or he doesn’t know.
He did say that the ghosts here were very strong. Their ties to our world must be stronger. They seemed to speak to each other. Some of them were very active, doing jumps and flips, others seemed to be tired and rested on benches.
The ghost druids were able to cast moonfire, as well as heal.
Jaellynn said the big crack in the ground was a ley line. I don’t know much about them, but I wonder if it’s affected the ghosts somehow.
The most strange thing to me were the dark wisps floating in the trees. I don’t think wisps can die, but they looked dark and corrupted. Can magic do that?
After we returned to the inn, Aerandir the worgen showed up to visit. That was kind of nice but then Sakia arrived too. I don’t mind her but they talked so much and none of them need to sleep! I do! Sakia was saying that Aerandir shouldn’t blame himself for what he did, because he wasn’t doing it by choice. It’s funny, I said the same thing to Jaellynn. I don’t think he believes it from her either. She also said Aerandir needed to find a girl. I don’t think she understands, it isn’t that simple. I doubt there are many living girls who would be okay with what he is. I love Jaellynn more than I can say, but I will certainly admit it’s difficult sometimes.
Tomorrow we’ll look at yetis and hippogryphs!
