Chapter 17 “If there’s nothing else can we get on the road…well, the path...,” commented Devon as he headed down off the rock. Matsugo paused as he tried to remember the spell he needed, then realized that was the very thing that could never happen in battle. With subtle movements, he cast his first Wizard’s Wall over the opening at the top of the cave. Climbing down and standing before the rock that shielded the path, he repeated the spell with a little more flare. Waving his arms in wide sweeping circles, a red glow started to form between his [...]

Chapter 16 – Matsugo Matsugo lay sprawled nude on a large flat rock above the entrance of their cave. It had become his perch. Where he studied. Where he spent his hours adjusting to this new life. It was secure; if he looked down, he could see into the tunnel leading to their current home. To the front lay the prairies spreading off into the distance. Behind him were great sheer cliffs which rose a hundred feet into the sky. It was always there, watching his back. Devon preferred the brightness of the day; Mat liked the nights. He did [...]

Here continues the journals of Keith Aderwilde, the soul consigned to chronical his travels through Hell. In these entries, we will visit the Planes of Blasphemy and Violence as well as the Creations discarded by The Father to the Void.

Chapter 15 - Alignments Alignments, as such, only really came into play when choosing and maintaining a relationship with your deity. Matsugo realized pretty quick he couldn’t pick a “good” deity, not that he would, and be a Necromancer, it was a dark art, as was a rouge. Alignments were easily defined when written down on paper like in D&D. But having to live with one was entirely a different story. Deciding an alignment was like choosing your weight, it wasn’t something you just picked by saying, “I’m this,” if you wanted the benefits associated with your choice, you had [...]

Chapter 14 – Devon finds a Deity Devon lay reading on his stomach under a tree just outside the cave’s entrance. He liked this spot early in the day before it got hot. The sounds of the little insect in the grasses and the herds of wildlife and birds moving with abandon across the plains made him feel more connected to this place. Mat was probably right; they needed to get out. Sitting beside him was a little mammal; he had no idea what it was. I reminded him of a cross between a rabbit and a squirrel; it was [...]

Chapter 13 – Devon Devon awoke and pushed the blanket away as a chill sent a wave of goosebumps rippling down his torso. His head was fuzzy; he’d slept hard last night. As he shivered, he realized he was lost, where was he. Rubbing his eyes, the surroundings slowly came into focus, and the momentary confusion turned into a smirk and then a smile. That’s right they lived in a cave now. They’d been here over a week, and still, he awoke confused. He looked down and giggled; he couldn’t help it; his new trusted friend was back, “Good morning, [...]
