Catfish, Cver, Solorian and Xia met with me in Saint Anjeka’s Shrine. This outpost was named after a woman name Anjeka who was slain by a Luxon while promoting peace between the two factions. Her death is one of many reasons why the two sides find it impossible to get along. I could tell that my friends were eager to enter battle, so I wrapped up my history lesson and walked through the shrine’s gate to Drazach Thicket.

The very name of this area had me excited. Melandru’s Hope sounds like just the sort of place a ranger would want to explore. So for my adventure today, I waited eagerly in Lutgardis Conservatory for my friends to show up. While I waited there, I spoke with Duke Holtz Lutgardis to find out more about House Lutgardis. Before I could move on from “hello” to “tell me about your people”, he cut me off mid-sentence in a most unusual way. He told me about his family in song! I had no idea anyone could take singing so seriously as to prefer it over speaking normally. But with a voice like that, I can understand why. His house is responsible for the forever trees; trees that can change a Kurzick into a juggernaught. For centuries, the Lutgardis house have devoted themselves to song and the creation of wondrous musical instruments.

When he finished, I nodded my head nervously and waved goodbye as I walked away and joined my friends Catfish, Xia, Bjorne, Solorian, and Cver .

Leaving from the Kurzick capital, House zu Heltzer with my friends Catfish J., Solorian D., Xia H.D., Meldon M., and Cver D, we stepped out into Ferndale. Immediately we were attacked by a group of mantids. After we finished them off, we encountered another group of them. Unfortunately we were under the umbrella of a mushroom and were caught in it’s spores, which made fighting the mantids even more difficult. As you can see, enormous mushrooms are all over ferndale.

Not too long ago, Danika led me into Arborstone to retrieve the Urn of Saint Viktor in order to defeat Shiro at Sunjiang District. This area houses a giant cathedral that is no longer used very much due to the monster population. As a non-Kurzick, I can only assume this must be a devastating loss for their culture because they are very religious. Once peaceful wardens now fill the cathedral and attack all humans on sight. Before the Jade Wind hit the Echovald Forest, these wardens were actually passive and acted as guardians of the forest spirit. Since all the trees have been turned to stone, this forest spirit has been wounded and perhaps gone a bit crazy. Today Catfish J., S. Fangastic, Celtic E., Tico C., and Pulviose T.R. will be helping me explore my first Kurzick area.
