2nd moon of Forn, 429 PK;
I finally managed to find the cave of Marmaacar! The exploration wasn’t easy, but it takes more than a simple cave to stop a dwarf! I found the root the old hermit asked me to bring back. But by my beard! The smell is unbearable! I need to get back to that crazy old healer before this bloody infection in my arm kills me. The skin around the wound has begun to turn grey, and it is spreading faster everyday! If I had just been wearing my armor, that pathetic troll would not hurt me! Another few days of suffering and everything will be over. That old man better not joke with me! In the same time this is the best for him or he will taste my hammer!
