Starfall 17, 499:
Uncle Joxoxan came to my birthday party. He gave me a belt pouch and this journal. He said the journal was to record all the things I do and see on my “grand adventures”. He said the belt pouch was to help get me started. It has a piece of chalk, flint/steel, some strange picks, and 5 gp in it! He left before my party was over. He said he to go to Kalimsport to see a dwarf who had a lead on “Tharsanz’s Eye”; he’s always looking for some amazing artifact or another.
Tonight, I’m going to track him down and join him, its time for me to see more of this world than our small village. I’m sure mother and father will understand; I should leave them a letter.
