The mines have been open for a few weeks now, silver has been flowing in, all the merchants seem happy and father has been working steadily. The new wealth has spurred need for new security due to a few more robberies increasing my own workload. Getting paid on two fronts… not a bad profession.
The gnome has been himself lately… never did get their need to voice every thought, I suppose you throw enough darts one of them is going to hit the mark.
Hurmm, marks, Note to self pay a visit to the Simmons boy who has been courting the Goldsmiths daughter, he has paid well to make sure they do not run off together.
Works done for the day, Too bad for Goldsmiths daughter, heard she received a letter form a local boy that he suddenly felt the need to join far off navy.
More people in town… more people getting sick.. must be something going round.
Spent the day with brother and the Gnome, reminded him of his mortality again.. explained that if he didn’t stop his chatter I would remove his tongue. He is a clever one though.. has some interesting designs for locks and traps. Too bad he was born a gnome, guess it is not his fault.
More missionarys of a weak forgotten god stopped by asking for hand outs, they looked hungry and were suffering from illness. I made sure to give them the leftovers that were going bad, perhaps the impending vomiting will help cleanse their systems.
Father is ill, I think there is more to the sickness than an increase in population. Ran some tests and through he brotherhood found that this sickness is intentional. Spoke with Sergeo, foreman of the mining company, *side note – susceptible to bribe, may be the POC for the Brotherhood into the silver trade. Appears that first family to get sick were Stevenson and Browns.. dead now, worked out of the old mines. Should start investigation there. Good chance Brother and I are infected.
On the road to old mines. Traveling with Brother and Gnome. He may be very useful for old supports. Encountered new priest who has joined us.. priest of death temple I have chosen to patronage, at least for now.
Cavern is infested with Kobold, several traps, This must be the source. Point find and end source, gather samples. find cure, gather enough for own use, enough to be replicated by guild to then be, offered to the public.
end note. cleaning of cavern should be used to leverage silver mining company for brotherhood influence.
