As I sit in the healer’s tent, my heart will not stop racing. We left the city of Aranhama three days ago, We met with the Queen who thoroughly tricked us, She informed us that the Clouded eye was recruiting cloud giants and wanted us to go to a cloud giant stronghold to see if we could discover anything new. That night I dreamed of Odin again. He told me that I would need something more if I were to venture into cloud giant territory and he placed his hand on my head. He explained that once a day I now had the power to lay a powerful curse on enemies. It doesn’t last very long so I’ll have to make the most of it. He also blessed me with a ranged attack of pure magic and the ability to perform interesting magical tricks. I used those to great effect on my friends. They loved every second of it. Except Clara. She vanished as we left the city again. She’s probably in jail and we just don’t know yet.
In any case we traveled on the road together for a few days. I made symbols appear on the road and changed our food flavors. When we stopped Arj wanted to talk about magic since I can do that now. He can still do a lot more, I can’t shoot lightning or anything but what I can use has proven to be very effective. No tree branch is safe from me. When we arrived at festingvold we discovered that they were having a tournament. The giants apparently had one every year and this year a giant would even be competing in the melee. I ran to sign up and Arj and Eldon ended up joining me. After a night of drinking we went to the tournament. So far all I know is we fought at the same time. Lucky me I was fighting the giant. I suppose Odin must have seen this coming because the curse he gave me enabled me to defeat the giant. It sadly wasn’t to the death but I’m pretty sure the giant will die of embarrassment now so that’s good. I wonder how Eldon and Arj did. I’m sure they won they are both very skilled. I look forward to fighting them in the later rounds. Also they mentioned that the Giants would invite the winner to meet them in their clouded castle. If I win this will be an excellent opportunity to gather information. Which is good because I usually am very bad at that. I do few things poorly but that is one of them.
