Those crazy-ass people!! For the past few months all they are focusing on is creating this “kingdom”. It took them 3 months to build my dance hall, the whole reason we were meant to be here in the first place. Every time I try to speak up nobody listens to me, it’s all about that damn dragon and whatever he wants. Adran is probably getting sick of having to hear my prayers, I built him a temple at least, although the council tried to suppress freedom of religion. It’s crazy, we brought all of these people here to help them, to give them the freedom to build their lives and those psychopaths want to strip them of their rights! They are insane, they are spending so much time and effort to marry the dragon to some elven noble to fortify alliances and they don’t even know the work that I’m doing to prevent all-out war. The dragon messed up, he swore allegiance to the elf and thus betrayed the allegiance we had mode to Aifellen, Adran and Drake, on top of this his irrational behavior risks the faith that Aifellen put in us with her citizens and his refusal to let people worship Adran… well it wouldn’t be surprising if all three of them didn’t decide to band together unilaterally and wipe up out. If they think that the elf can stop them before they accomplish their task they are idiots. However strong the elf king may be, Adran is a God and Aifellen could easily rally her loyals still in the kingdom. Not to mention that both Adran and Aifellen have been here within the past month and nobody knew about it. Plus, if it came to it, the elf would sooner have them on good terms if they can travel through as opposed to a small village to nobody’s. It’s ridiculous!!!
If I weren’t working alongside the queen and Adran they would be in so much trouble, I don’t even know why I’m helping them – they are psychopaths!! After spending 3 months building houses and temples (and my dancehall) they decided to go around the local area and check for monsters that could harm the villagers. This by itself is okay, but they were crazy, they were chapping people’s doorbells and then trying to pick fights and kill people. That good dragon they tried to kill would have become a much bigger problem had we not stopped the fight and offered him a deal. If he had been left alone he would have maybe tried to steal some gold or some sheep, but by starting this fight he stole gold anyway, and asked for a sheep tax to be due to him. We managed to talk the psycho-dragon into giving him a space on the council at least so if he goes too crazy hopefully goldie will step in and stop him.
Then they tried to attack the Raksashas. These guys were just minding their own business when the group stormed their house and threatened them. The summoner guy and his wannabe tried to set fire to the house while we were trying to negotiate. The group followed him and put him out of his misery (freeing that wannabe in the process) while I spoke to the Raksasha. They claim that they probably won’t be here for long and we can call on them if we need them, though they might not come.
I’m worried, if they catch me out as not being “loyal” to the dragon that I may suffer the same fate. I was okay with him, loyal to the group; however his recent betrayals and power trip have proven too much. He admitted before that he was unstable, his obsession with crazy artifacts saw to that. He even told us once that he wasn’t sure he was the best person to always look to, that he was too insane to lead the group. Sadly everybody else seemed to ignore his moment of clarity.
If he can’t lead a group of able bodied adventurers, how does he imagine he can lead a “kingdom”?
I’ve spoken to Adran, I’ve asked him to speak (either directly or through the queen) to the elven king. I want the dragon demoted to a normal council member and we can have a democratic system. The issue is we can’t decide anything as a council for as long as the dragon is being insane and determined to be a ruler and the only way to put him down is either to kill him (which would cause unrest) or to go over his head. However, he can’t know the request came from me. I may try to have a sneaky one-to—one with a few council members to decide what happens if the elven king comes back to us, or if we need to act unilaterally.
This whole thing has spiraled way out of control. This was meant to be a holiday home for my girls, not a new life mission and treason against the queen.
