Sellonus's Journal Vol. 1
by Sellonus
A mage's plan to ensnare a dangerous man in a trap

14th of Last Seed, 4E 130

Our guild has been commissioned to capture and restrain a renegade Blades captain. Many tales have been spoken of his cruelty and malice, some even claiming he is part serpent. In addition to bearing the arms of his former employers, it is said that he wields an Akaviri weapon of dark magic. The combination makes him quite formidable.

Thankfully, the guild has great experience in dealing with such things and we will win the day!

6th of Hearthfire, 4E 130

We encountered our foe but all did not go as planned and he escaped us. He was more powerful than we had imagined and many lives were lost as a result of our misjudgment.

However, I am now convinced that his dreaded blade is the source of his power, as I have witnessed first hand the dark magic it yields, for the blade drinks both lifeforce and mana from any that befall to it.

We must think of a way to separate our foe from the source of his power.

2nd of Suns Dusk, 4E 130

We have devised a means to separate our foe from his blade and we must now set a trap and lure him to us. I am certain that it will work, but to be sure I must think of an incentive to draw him to us.

I think it will be prudent to research this former Captain in more depth.

13th of Suns Dusk, 4E 130

Upon reading what I have regarding our Captain, my heart almost feels pity for him. It would seem that his madness and malice stem from the loss of his wife. The records reveal that it was after this tragic event that the darkness of the soul overcame him.

However, pity will not save lives. He must be stopped in all event! Therefore, I have decided to acquire the remains of his love one, in the hope that this will draw him to us.
