POST 2 This birdman is interesting. Not to be trusted, but perhaps joined in momentary alliance. He seems to have an understanding of the forest which will be beneficial for our crossing, as well as an understanding of magic in a technical sense. He also it seems has travelled in the fey realms, the original home of the Drow. I do not dislike him altogether. Mushrooms, he says, I know of such.. growing in the darkness of the caverns, the entrance to my forgotten home, the underdark. Ahhh.. Many years have I travelled without smelling this scent of the dark sunken earth, the blackness of familiarity. My eyes have trouble readjusting, this is strange to me. These last many moons, the cosmos have grown strong within mine spirit, my soul shimmering faintly with the dim glow of far off stars, distant worlds of power, all reflected through the eye of my dagger. It feels good to be below ground, even it is only in the shallows. Good, but also… hauntingly painful. The treachery of my race is like the wind, both steering my course while also threatening to blow me to realms in which I do not wish to venture. The fear is fresh like the icy water seeping up from the earth. I know what would happen if I were recognized by other Drow. Where is my brother, where is Illz, and why did he betray our family? Was his cause noble and daring, or selfish and vile? Will I ever know? When I find him, will I bury him as a traitor or rejoice in our reunion? Will I ever get to ask him why he….... Myconids!!! Ahh.. I remember these creatures, farmed in the great cities of the Spider Queen, infected with the curse of the deranged giants of the deep…funny, my first instinct is no longer what it was years ago, to draw a sword and fight.. it is now to call down the heavens!! But I am below ground, cut off from the open sky with which I have become so dependent on for my power… can I summon the stars here as well, in the shallows of the deep dark?... Must find out…... Stars! blazing and falling from the ceiling of the cave! It seems the heavens follow me even into the deep! Hahahaha! Perhaps my dreams are true, perhaps I will one day reign down the fury of the sun, and the terror of the moon against my former kin, perhaps I will open a great rift to the sky and pour the will of the darkness of the night into the darkness of the depths… perhaps then all of those who slaughtered the house of Darkblade will know true bretrayal, and will taste the true extent of treachery a Drow is capable of! Perhaps then they will be haunted in their Driemz!!! Haahaha.hah..haaa….
POST 1 Driemz has been working on channeling some old cosmic engergies into new forms. This has manifested in his ability to now call down Rays of Moonlight (retrained enc-lvl 1 to Ray of the Moon) and summon cyclones of Swirling Stars[lvl3-enc] to descend upon his foes. In addition to magic, the elf of dark origin has felt stronger, and has an increased power of attraction about him [ability incr. Str & Cha]. He has also been studying the angles of his magics from long distances and their effects, and has seemed to all of a sudden gained some sort of advantage, striking enemies engaged in combat with ease from afar (Distant Advantage feat) Driemz as of late feels more in touch with the heavens, sleeping under the stars without the distractions of the city night to blur his vision. He feels his powers of cosmic sorcery growing stronger as the days progress, stirring within him some distant call in his blood, a hint of untold power, and even farther down, a yearning for…he has begun to realiz…. revenge.
(Though he hasn’t mentioned it to his comrades, lately Driemz has been dreaming of the underdark, only instead of the nightmares he usually faces in sleep, of his family being murdered, he has been having dreams where he is sitting on the cold earthen floors of the city of the spider queen, enshrouded in rays of sun and moonlight, the stars shining above his head, sititing calmly amidst a panic of blinded dark elfs, screaming in terror, though their words silent in escape) (Driemz has not had much time to ponder the meaning of these dreams amidst the chaos of the Raegasian invasion and the heat of the fire forest, though they are ever in the back of his mind)
