4th of Desnus (in the 11th year of the rule of Noleski Surtova)
I forget just how wild this land is even now after a year of settlement and farming and the destruction of so many of the beasts that are inimical to humanity and the civilization we spread. We were attacked by Wargs only a few hours away from the battle at Fangberry farms. Camped for the night we barely made it through half the night when they struck. We managed to drive them off with Drogov again rising to the occasion with his alchemist fire-bombs. Still we lost one of the horses and needed to double up for the rest of the ride home.

Bloody murder was enacted last night. I should have realized we were in for some sort of weirdness when the Warg’s attacked us on a full moon. Still the carnage that awaited us upon our return was ridiculous. A woman farm holder was rent apart after her door was hacked into splinters. What sickens me is some street corner lawyer named Grigori is using this as a rallying cry against both the Kariv and Baron Van Allegmund I wonder if the man works for some external power or if he is merely an opportunist with delusions of being the next Pushkaya? Whatever the case he may need to be dealt with. Quietly, it wouldn’t do to make a martyr out of a traitor.
What bothers me is how easily he twists the fears and worries of the commoners into chains that he binds them with. Abadar only knows what he will get the mob up to. We do not need this kind of distraction right now. A werewolf or something pretending to be a werewolf is killing people in the main trade town of the Barony. If we do not catch it soon I will go to the witch on the edge of town. She may be the most potent caster in the region that is not arrayed against us.

Last night was a bloody mess. The poor fool Grengause rushed in against a monster a 10 foot tall werewolf wielding a half moon shaped great axe . We tried to burn the thing down but even trapped between Drogov and myself the beast still managed to cut him in twain. The worst of it all is the Forgotten used a spell with a facility and power easily in excess of my own when he has claimed all along to be a simple spell caster barely past being an apprentice. I pray he too is not an enemy merely waiting for a better time to pounce.
As far as Grigori is concerned he spins his half truths and lies with too little care. He finally crossed the line by lying about Otto’s death. Baron Van Allegmund could not let that stand and when the pissant rabble rouser stood there wetting himself hiding behind a facade of helplessness Karl exiled him from his lands. I would have not been surprised if Karl had cut him down right there where he stood but while sorely tested Karl’s patience seems to know no bounds I fear leaving this man alive but once again I will not make of him a martyr.
