  • First thou must needs fill a crucible with metal. Then, using the bellows, make the fire as hot as possible. When the flame no longer continues to glow, thou art ready to proceed by setting the crucible on the fire to melt the metal.
Afterwards, pour the molten metal into the blade mold and let it cool. Be warned! The crucible is at an extremely high temperature. Do not burn thyself.
With the tongs, lift the cooled blade from the mold. Again heat up the fire and set the blade within. Be careful not to let it lose its shape though. Just set it in there long enough to become malleable.
When it is ready, take it to the anvil and finish shaping it with the hammer. When thou hast the desired blade, find the quenching barrel and plunge the sword in the cool water. It will quickly harden.
All that thou must needs do now is to put the pommel over the tang. It takes some doing to make a fine, sturdy sword, but the finished weapon is well worth it!

  • Dearest Iolo,
In Buccaneer's Den I came across an old pirate who told me he had sailed across the waters of Britannia more times than I was summers old. On a gamble, I asked if he had ever heard of the legendary Serpent Isle. He had! And he even had a map that would tell how to locate the island. I bought the map and have already begun my search. However, I made a copy so that thou mayest follow me after thy current adventures have ended. I have left the copy with Lord British, but he promised he wouldst not give it to thee until thou hast completed thy explorations with .
'Til I see thee again, my love!

  • I have been here for more days than I am able to remember, though I have not forgotten the day I entered this forsaken cave which has become my tomb. That was 2-29-0227. But my food ran out long ago, and the rats are more interested in eating me than letting me eat them. My strength is gone, as is my will. If thou dost find this, please tell Mythra I love her. --Denyel

SHIPWRIGHT: Clint of Britain
  • Day 1: I circumvented the living statues and made it through the gate. Despite the long boat ride, I feel no weakness. I suspect the excitement of the quest gives my strength. I will rest soon.
Day 2: In the large room I encountered the lightening at the "X." Very clever that -- predicting I would not trust the marking. I will not be so foolish again.
Day 3: I found a large chamber, one in which I can see fully its entire contents. Yet, there are invisible barriers that prevent me from entering.
Day 4: The barriers are not what I first suspected. They are walls. I can see the exit, and yet I cannot reach it. This is maddening!
Day 5: I wish I had brought more rations. I did not expect to be caught like this. I will starve soon if I do not find the way out... and food and water!
Day: I am still without food and whales... I seee but cannot... well hilp arrive in time!? I think but am thoughtful... ... I have been in this wretched place for more weeks than I care to remember -- than I COULD remember were I to try. I have seen far too much in the way of deception and falsehood. I am forced to wonder how this maze of tunnels can demonstrate Truth. There is one lesson I can claim to have learned, thou I wonder with whom I can ever share it: I am not the Avatar. I wish with my last breath good luck to he... or she... who can truly claim the Avatarhood. As I lay here dying, I ask but one request of the finder: remember well my strug... ... I write this with what little hope I have left. Frenke has now died -- killed by shooting balls of flame. I will attempt to navigate the treacherous tunnel of fire alone. Should my quest succeed, I will emerge the Avatar. I relflect not upon my other destiny...
This will be my last entry. My ink is all but gone, much like my will. I no longer marvel at how a man can give up, like the poor fool we found at the end of the invisible maze. But I refuse to succumb to the call of my weary bones. I will trudge on.
