4th Year, 4th Moon, 15th Day:
Into The Depths
A courier brought to my attention that there was an haunted underground passage which lead to the land of Midgard. He said that I would surely find some Norse wandering the entrance to this dwelling. I set forth on my first venture to this haunted passageway named by locals as Darkness Falls. I followed a warband of Hibernians to the strange portal that would send me to Midgard. I waited. Night fell and the nurse watch began flooding the corridors. I had many fierce battles and lay to rest 7 Norsemen before I left. My adventure was quite fascinating and I will indeed further explore this realm of spirits and the damned.

4th Year, 4th Moon, 9th Day:
The Wolves of Midgard
Its been nearly a month since my last slaying, I have been working on improving my skills while still taking trips to Midgard on a regular basis. Ive learned many of the popular hunting groups... many of which show evidence of death in the recent past. The wolves of Midgard have grown fond of me. Perhaps it is the Spraggon meat I bring over from Hibernia for them the develops the kinship between us. Regardless the companionship of the wolves is quite useful in this new land. I figure the longer I stay in Midgard the less likely the Sentinals will see though my disguise. I do miss Elyzaria though. Im sure she is progressing in her studies. Well I must make haste the Sentinals are walking this way.
4th Year, 3rd Moon, 23rd Day:
The Mother Wolf
A cold wind welcomed me to the land Midgard. It was my first venture to Midgard and I decided I would seek out blood on Midgard soil while exploring their land for every nook and cranny.
I traveled several hours hiding from the Norse patrols and the occasional war party. I ran across a bunch of Albion that made no effort to find me after I cheered for them and waved as they sped past me. I made my way to both of their Great Walls protecting their borders from invaders then began my search for unsuspecting soldiers roaming about.
I came to a quiet place where the wolves sang and lizards roamed. It was near the triple log that I met my first friend in Midgard. She was a beautiful wolf who was out hunting for food for her cubs just a ways uphill. You could hear their tiny howls and it reminded me a lot of the times I spent with the wolves in Hibernia. She approached and sniffed my armor and then my bag. I pulled out of my bag a small piece of meet I had planned on cooking this night and gave it to her. But she did not take it. She became very nervous and became spooked by something. I quickly hid behind a tree. A troll and kobold came running up the path. They ran towards the Wolves den and the mother wolf growled at them with such anger. They attacked the wolf and killed her. The cries of her children filled my heart and the blood in my veins began to boil. I watched them carefully as they continued slaying anything breathing they could find. Laughing... Taunting... and worst of all, trophy collecting.
I could not take it any more. I snuck in on the kobold, pulled my knife out, and cut her neck from ear to ear spewing blood onto her Troll friend. I then thrust my blade into trolls heart killing him instantly. I then dropped my flowers on their bodies and carried the mother wolf to her den. I took the cubs with me to another area where they would be safe. Another mother wolf took them into her den. It was with great sorrow that I had to say goodbye.
I was continuing my search when I caught wind of a very familiar scent. I followed it to the Albion gate and there standing in blue leaning up against the wall smiling was Lady Elyzaria. We to each other and embraced each other for what seemed an eternity. She spoke to me in Gaelic telling me she knew she would find me here. We spent the evening killing trolls and exploring the land. It quite nice to see her again.

4th Year, 3rd Moon, 21st Day:
Well today is the day the Mages deem necessary to push me forward with my hunt. It seems they feel I am to skilled for Caledonia. Tonight I celebrate my graduation with my sister Uan at the Pub in Ardee. She will be glad to hear I have completed my training.
I intend on training my skills a bit more, and I do hope I can see Elyzaria on the other side of Ligen or perhaps I will sneak away to Albion to see her. Regardless meeting up with her will be my first priority. I will miss my days in Caledonia and always hold Carcer, Kaliel, Keroh, Elyzaria, Delphron, Tomi, Lilipad, Posy, Lanbridge, and Shorin dear to my heart.
On my final days I claimed the lives of 19 Midgards. The fights were often times very rough and I made a lot of trips through the Otherworld. The new outcropping of Hibernian's entering the battleground was less than pleasing. Reminded me a lot of the crowd at the Battle of Thidranki. It is indeed sad when I can trust an Albion more than my own countryman. For the next 4 to 6 moons I will be traveling abroad to Midgard. I plan to locate every traveling pattern and camping location as well as every safe zone for when I decide to rest.
I am very anxious to go hunt again. I feel my destiny nearing. As I drink tonight I shall say a toast to all of my newfound friends still fighting the good fight in Caledonia. May the wind be at their back and the Norse be at their feet. Rest well Caledonia.

4th Year, 3rd Moon, 18th Day:
The Foolish Dwarf
I managed to sneak past the night watch tonight and get back inside Druim Ligen. I have received word from my sister Uan that it is no longer safe to travel near Hibernian Guards. It seems that my love for Elyzaria has been declared as treason, punishable by death.
I remained in Caledonia hiding away from the keep guards most of the past few days. While in Caledonia I spent a lot of time hunting with Elyzaria. One in particular fight I used myself as bait and we ran across a loan Skald by the name of Rilne. I turned and acted as though I was retreating. The skald ran up behind me and swung his sword at me. Right as he was about to stab me in the back I whipped around and placed both of my swords in his chest. He turned to run and there stood my dearest Elyzaria with a quick stab to the throat. The Dwarfs limp body fell to the floor. Elyzaria had the cutest smile on her face. I knew she was thinking the same thing as I. ″Foolish Dwarf″... He must have been real surprised to have a mage turn around and stab him in the chest.
The battles in Caledonia have grown rather tame to those of the past week. I fear my time here is coming to an end. Caledonia's doors will only be open to me a few more days. I must make the best of them. I have decided that until I am forced to leave I will continue my hunt for the Shadowblade Redar and also the Skald Rilne. I shall enjoy holding Rilne's organs in my hand. Well I fear the guards will find me soon I best leave before I am noticed.

4th Year, 3rd Moon, 15th Day:
It was a long 5 days that passed since my last battle with Redar. I feared he long gone from the lands of Caledonia. Today our paths crossed. It was during a keep siege that I ran across this elusive Kobold Shadowblade. After studying the environment I realized he did not have a healer to meant his wounds and that left a weakness. I quickly applied diseases to my blades and struck him with them as he ran by. I then regained my strength crept into the keep and waylaid him right on Caledonia's doorstep. His body fell limp to the floor and I bolted out of the keep as fast as the wind could carry me. The whole time a flurry of arrows whisked by me. I managed to escape with enough life left to mend my wounds. My job was done I had slain my mark.
This week my next mark has been given to me. His name is Sildid, yet another shadowblade, cept this one favors axes over blades. He managed to get the upper hand on me at our first meeting but I returned to let him know I am hunting him. I''m sure this one will be much more playful than Redar. If nothing else he should be easier to find.
All in all I laid to rest nine Norseman today. A good number for a good day. It was a very enjoyable day filled with sieges and many battles. It also will be forever held as a very special day as it was the day I proposed to my dearest Elyzaria. I led her and some of her friends out into the woods to a quiet place and presented her with a golden ring I bought from a jewelry shop in Tir na Nog. Her eyes lit up and she leaned over giving me a huge hug, nearly swishing me in the process, followed by a very passionate kiss and a definite yes.
I do know that the road ahead is not one that shall be liked by many. But my mother always told me. Follow your heart wherever it leads you, and that is exactly what I plan to do. I may not be liked for loving a Briton, but truthfully what's different. People hate that which they don't understand. They hide behind anger and rage and start wars just because they don't understand why people from other places are they way they are. Half the time Hibernians don't understand who I am and where I come from. They sooner cut my heart out than find out. But that's just they way people are I guess.

4th Year, 3rd Moon, 13th Day:
For the past week I have turned Caledonia upside down tracking a Shadowblade by the name of Redar. For weeks he has terrorized the people of Caledonia and for weeks he has taken lives of Hibernian men and women. Over the course of the past week I have encountered him 4 times. To date I have only slain him once. I am quite certain he is using a sleeper to channel their energies to protect him. Several times I have gotten him within his last breath and he manages to pull through. It was after the third loss that I decided to call upon my very own sleeper to even the playing field. Unfortunately during the past 3 days I have not been able to follow his trail. I fear his time is up in Caledonia and he will not return. Redar has proven to be a most formidable opponent and for this I shall keep his picture close and continue tracking him as I move forward in my learning.
During my stay in Caledonia I did manage to mark a few more graves. Seventeen to be exact. One battle I single handily laid to rest a Troll Healer, Shadowblade and a Hunter. How, I am unsure. Twas defiantly a blessing from the God's that kept me with the living. I should try not to be so clumsy in the future.
I finished my week by traveling to Ardee and having a pint with Brumhilda and Uan at the pub. Was quite nice to see my sister. I hadn't seen her in nearly 2 moons. After having a few drinks I attended a class on tracking and have improved my abilities in detecting lurkers. I can now track hunters with greater speed and efficacy.

4th Year, 3rd Moon, 9th Day:
Alas A Moment of Rest
Once again it has been several moons since I have managed to rest. Caledonia fell under siege once again. Over 3 days Midgards, Hibernians and Albion have claimed possession of Caledonia. Blood has been spilt non-stop over the past few days and I have been rather busy. I am very tired from my battles and think I will seek refuge in the barracks tonight. Tomorrow I must wake and sharpen my daggers for the battles ahead.
On the third night I did see Elyzaria once again. Her smile was a kind welcome. I also met some of her comrades Tomi, Asmirond, Altnumil, Kaliel, and Carcer. They all seem like a nice bunch except for their liking to kill Hibernians. Their sparing me was a kind act compared to the butchering earlier this week I took from the people of Albion. Sometimes its really hard to keep my oath, but then I think. What is worst... Death... or disappointing my people's spirits, or yet worse. the gods. I do hope my people are proud and I hope tonight they will let me rest in peace. May the Gods watch over their spirits, and protect my dearest Elyzaria.

4th Year, 3rd Moon, 4th Day:
The Pale Moon
The moon was as pale as a fresh coat of snow tonight as Hibernians, Norsemen, and Albion collided in a gigantic battle that would leave hundreds dead and several wounded. As I scaled the wall of Caledonia a severed torso nearly pealed me off of my rope. The clashing of metal on metal and ripping of flesh cause my blood to boil with anticipation. Caledonia had turned to an all out free for all.
This weeks mark was Anneo who I managed to slay four times over 2 days. I still have 3 days left this week. Perhaps I can send him home a couple more times this week before I choose a new mark. In all the fights were rather ruthless and gruesome. I saw many of my fellow Hibernians fall in some terrible fashions. Tis good that they all were wearing their bindstones though I cant imagine the pain they must have felt as the axe blades severed their every limbs.
Its terrible what goes on in Caledonia but the fight must rage on. I have not seen Elyzaria in several days. I do hope she is safe. Alas it is time to rest. Till next time.
Kills: Anneo (4), Fiercewind (1), Jeagersa (2), Jerilynn (1), Joridgend (1), Redar (1), Volwrath (1)
4th Year, 2nd Moon, 26th Day:
My Return to Caledonia
Much had changed in the time passed. The winter had passed and new blossoms filled the trees of Caledonia. Midgard banners flew over the keep and hordes of savages roamed the land. My first objective was to estimate the force I was up against. How many Albion roamed, whether they were friend or foe, and where were the Midgards were lurking. I began on my usual patrol of the Midgard keep, the Midgard rivers, the Midgard bridge, and Caledonia keep. It was at the keep I first found a loan Kobold standing watch at the keep gates. I noticed him nodding away slowly and waited. I closed in on him and before he realized I was standing in front of him I took my staff and executed a fierce upward slam on him causing his neck to snap backwards with a loud snap sound. His body fell limp to the floor and I fled from the scene. I returned to place the flowers on his grave and noticed a Shadowblade lurking near. I quickly made way towards the Hibenrian bridge.
The battles intensified from there and the war Caledonia returned to an all out massacre. By the third day I had slain 34 Norseman. I briefly returned the Hibernian stronghold to med my wounds and get a warm meal. I plan to return later tonight at attempt to seek out more fresh blood.

About Renny Conchobair
In a time long ago there lived a tribe of Lephricauns who were well known craftsmen among the hills of Emain Macha. They were a peaceful tribe who found great joy in commerce and quality craftsmanship.
As the raiding parties from the winter cursed lands of the east came on their longships, trouble brewed in his homelands. In the path of these warmongers lied the village of Failté. All would be slain except for a few brave children who in a moment of haste escaped the clutches of death and abandoned all they loved in the quest for survival.
This is the story of Renny Conchobair, the son of Connor & Tessa Conchobhair and brother of Uan Conchobhair, one of the last remaining survivors of the nearly extinct tribe. He has traveled the lands in search of knowledge. He has been trained by the best assassins in the land. He hunts as a wolf, ripping the life from those responsible for his tribes demise. He will not rest until every last soul has been vanquished and will leave a trail of bloodshed in his path. His adventures begin here.
