Giona Morton's Little Black Book
« on: August 22, 2021, 03:57:46 am »
This book is a small but high quality leatherbound journal.  Oddly, the notebook is circular rather than the typical rectangular shape. 

1.
Lauriella Sithir. 
Mulhorandi.  Captain of the merchant marine ship Moonflower II.  Apprentice at an academy (Nebular?).  Also follows Sehanine.  Likely an elf or half-elf.  Bad tempered & quickly makes threats of violence and insurrection.  Likely trade union links.  Imperfect spelling and punctuation.

1a.
Lauriella Sithir
More threats and insults received.  What I was told about Selunites clearly true.  Claims to be observing me now.  Is either a pretty moon elf with speckled eyes or has an agent who is such.  Am currently mulling over whether pre-emptive action is necessary.  Possibly an ill or misguided girl and not actually evil.  Just touched by Selune's cruel madness.  Would not want to give her details to H if she can be cured.

2.  Man-Bat.
IT'S REAL.  I saw it, fought it and slew it.  But it must regenerate and haunt basements once again, or there is possibly a massive cult of Men-Bats.  Possibly/probably a Selunite cult.  I dare not retract my editorial stance that Man-Bat is a hoax.  I am so beloved that the whole town would suffer if my reputation were to take a blow.

3. Covington
It's as real as Man-Bat.  A reader (presumably a child due to the syntax) wrote in to say they've been there with a pirate.  Credible story despite the writing style:  many elements check with what I have read about Covington.  Will arrange with H and others to locate it privately.


4. Soppira Hellsworth
Not pleased with Soppira of late.  She has arranged interview with Zolo and refused my demand to cancel it.  She threatened to take story to City Blossom or West Netheril Times if I do not publish it.  May have to heavily redact story.  Must remember to search her locker for Selunite taint.

4a. Soppira Hellsworth
Soppira wants to interview Carsen Sable, a known adventurer sympathiser, for her next article.  Am not pleased.  Of even more concern, today for morning tea she was eating an unusual dessert consisting of two baked chocolate circles with white goo sandwiched between them.  She described this as a "moon pie".  Clearest sign yet that she is a closet Selunite.
