ULDAMAN. DAY 3
I cannot believe how foolish I was. To be blind-sided by the foul Shadowforge dwarves was a novice’s feat. My wounds heal slowly. Surely I am poisoned. I feel my energy sap away. I must scout ahead nonetheless…

ULDAMAN. DAY 7
… Last chance at redemption for my failures. I believe the ruby is in the last barricaded area the dwarves have against the troggs. Their battles, no doubt over the gems and the other artifacts from this site, rage continuously. It would be just like those vile dwarves to hide it somewhere there. Regardless, I must make a move one way or another. Perhaps a mad dash to the surface is the best course.
