Priestess Haila has accepted my invitation to attend the Festival of Lyss and speak with the princes. To be honest, I’m nervous about speaking with them. Usually when I am solving the problems of allied groups or nations, it doesn’t hinge on my ability to impress royalty with witty conversation. To calm my nerves, I decided to explore the Forum Highlands with my friends Alarion and Rajas. As we left from Tihark Orchard, we found several groups of Vabbian guards patrolling the outpost.

Since my arrival at the Kodash Bazaar, I’ve come to appreciate life back on Istan much more. The quality of goods is better here, but it doesn’t justify the steep jump in prices. Sure being an adventurer has filled my coffers, but it seems like a waste to me. Also, I get a lot of stares from nobles, because I “carry the smell of battle”.

A Vabbian guard welcomed me and mentioned that a priestess of Lyssa was looking for me, and that she headed outside into the Yatendi Canyons. When I met up with her, she explained that I needed to goto the Chantry of Secrets and consult with the Order of Whispers, where I learned that they too want to rid the world of demons, and by extension, Varesh. Throughout this time, Master of Whispers was in our party but refused to comment on the situation. At the moment, Alarion M. is helping me re-examine Yatendi Canyons to learn more about Vabbi.
