Tales from the Underdark

Passing time

The days seems to become longer and longer. Quite some time has passed since the last awarding trip we made. The destruction of Ecodome#19 was truly an adventure. Tho things like that dont come by very often sadly. We were paid handsomely by the barpatron that first gave us the assignment and then left us. We have not heard from him since. I guess he was cought by the imperials for selling illegal magitech blueprints in the inner city. I dont think we will ever see him again to be honest with you. He is likely dead. This was as i mentioned a while ago now. The money we got is far from spent and well.. hitting the bars every night to pass time is not my goal in life. Life is to short for that. Something ought to happen soon….


No rest for the wicked

After a long fucking walk through the Sprawl i hit the bars. And would you not believe it that as soon as i get in there i see one of them slumlord dogs. Fucking low lifes, he was arguing with this girl, rather hot at that, i ignored it the best i could even tho i wanted to smash his face in for just existing. I sat down to have my drink and left my hammer leaning at the counter, and managed to take one sip from my drink before that asshole noticed my jacket….

He went up to me all high and mighty with his fucking talk about that this bar belonged to and what and who i should watch out for that guy and that other random retard, so before actually thinking a sound thought i had my fist in his face. When he managed to control his breathing again, he pulled a small toothpick of a knife and started to pick a fight with me, i dont know how but he managed to drag the girl he was talking to earlier into the fight, im guessing she was trying to stop him or something. I stood up and grabbed my hammer and told him that he should get the fuck out of my face before i got really angry. The barkeep told us to take it outside…

When we got outside he got serious. He had the girl at a strangle hold and he the knife to her neck, she was obviously crying, he threatened to kill the girl now unless I left the bar, since i would not do that he was in trouble. He was shouting all kinds of shit that his boss was going the hear about this and that. I didnt give five shits about it. Hell i didnt even give a shit about the girl either but since she actually showed a bit of humanity earlier i might as well save her. I dropped the hammer and told him to leave her out of it. He didnt buy it….

Im not sure who threw the stone but my god it hit that asshole at the perfect time, he dropped his knife and the girl squirmed free of his grip. All i really remeber is that i beat the living crap out of that bitch before letting him go no the sqeal to his boss. Fuck the cover i was trying to hold, its no use anymore, not if they can recoginze me this easy. Im growing tired of all these fucking gangbangers.

I went back inside after that twerp disappeared into the the crowd. I finished my drink, while doing that a man walked up to me asking some random banter questions, i answerd the best i could. I didnt really care. I better get going to the sprawl again, Carolyn is working tonight, maybe she can tell me where i can find that sad shit of a best friend i had. It seems like someone is stalking me…


The Pillars of light

At long last my journey is over, its been a far to long trip out in the wastelands, the glory of the capital is really unheard of up in the mountains. I was shocked to see the walls appear slowly in the dust of the caravan, the walls just never stopt growing the closer we went, i mean hell this city is more of and indipendent country in it self because of its size.

Anyways, when we got inside the splendor of the walls vanished fast. All i could see was slums, they were in such a bad state i was wondering if anything could live down here in this filth. Mountains of trash and waste was pretty much all i could see before i saw that witch i had been told about. The great pillars of light, the city of walltown. Im not much of a city person since im from the mountains so this was mindblowing, just this city spreading across four massive pillars nearly a mile high, gleaming with millions of lights in the darkness like a beacon of a godly pressance.

I said goodbye to the caravan leader and payed him the fee i promised when i meet them at the ecodomes and started the long walk up to the elevators near the base of the pillars. It was exiting, all the new horrible smells and this wierd society living around the base floor of this sector of the slums…

After about an hours walk i finally reached the base of the pillars, it was buzzling with life, i never in my grown life seen this many people, at least not since my mom died. There was a massive line to the many elevators. After just a few minutes it was my turn along with some more inhabitants. A small child was awing my pristine robes and staff. I guess they arent that used to outsiders within the city.

The elevator rustled and screamed with horrible sounds before it started to move and to be honest i was quite uncomfterble to listen to it. It was worth it tho, i finaly understand why the sector is called the land of embers, it was as the ground started to glow when the darkness engulfed the ground down below, all of the bonfire from the ground lit up like small embers and filled the darkness with a soothing orange glow.

It took the elevator quite some time to reach the first floor of the city. The elevator stopped at an area that the guards called the preacher summit. From the instructions i had in my letter this was were i was supposed to get of.

After a short walk up along the odd streets and many buildings i came across a crowd of people. There seemed to be some sort of comotion between from what i believe was a gangmembers. One of them was a giant, he looked calm but sturn, the other was a small man, rather scrawny build and he was really angry, beside him was a woman who bearly had any clothes on her. She was crying. The big man crushed the small man, it was not a pleasant sight….

Before this got the attention of the guard i started to ask around in the dispersing crowd if anyone knew of a place called lantern street. An elder man told me to seek out the hindenburg bar in the sprawl…
