Entry 1:

So after a close call last night only just getting away with my skin I was still able to get away with one of the greatest heists of all time, now I need to get out of the town for a whilst. I will let the town watch cool down a bit, hopefully copycats will try to emulate what I succeeded in last night and that will only make me more famous…
So firstly, need to find somewhere to hide my stash, this should be easy I know a few people and there is always the thieves’ guild, not normally somewhere to keep things safe but my reputation should keep my stash safe. Secondly I need to find a way to get out of this town, I know there are lots of different ways, the reiksplatz would probably be the best place to find a cheep way out; after a heist of this magnitude it would be a shame if I have to spend it on lying low…

But whilst looking at timetables and pricing of coach’s the strangest thing happened, I was approached by an elf with a most interesting proposal…

He suggested that he needs a man with my extraordinary talents and that his employee would pay for my transport, food and any additional equipment that I need, in addition I will get paid. This sounded like the best idea in the world, after a small amount of haggling, we agreed on a price of 21 gold crowns up front, and an additional 50 gold crowns on completion, there is also lots of chances to earn extra coinage… considering I was planning on paying around 10 gold crowns or so to get out of this place to let my reputation grow earning all be it a small amount extra sounds good to me.

So my employee a tall bald strange smelling man who looks like he can handle himself in a fight is accompanied by a rugged eared man, who despite his appearance seems very academic, able to read very well, suspect he may be quite wealthy and intelligent. Also in the party is a old soldier, he seems ok, smells a bit funny, but he doesn’t look like the richest of people, looks pretty hardy and handy in a fight. There was a miner he looks cheap, apparently one of his requests of coming with us was to pay part of his bar tab, so not to interested in his purse strings… there was also a dwarf, being a dwarf should easy to con and trick to get into his purse, he doesn’t look like the smartest of people… The elf that I negotiated with seems to be intelligent enough; looks relatively well off so may be of some interest.

Will keep an eye on everyone and see what other bonus' i can take out of this little trip.

Entry 2:

So we started our journey today and very interesting weather we had too, the days were long and tiring, the first few days were completely uneventful, not much happening apart from taking some of my colleges money in cards. There was a lightning storm along the way in which a few people lost control of there horses, or so called leader Mitchell fell hardest, looking like he took some damage and his horse rocket took off in impressive fashion. However the prince was able to show amazing control of his horse and bolt after it to reclaim the lost horse. Continuing on with our journey we met a traveller who was heading north apparently, however this seemed to be a cover story when he asked us to leave our purses where we were. Thankfully our brave and bold leader called for the charge as we were jumped by a group thieves. Sadly our leader couldn’t ride his horse very well and fell off with spectacular fashion hurting himself more from the fall than from any damage done by the thieves in the conflict. The prince was a very easy target apparently as he was instantly attacked as the wealthiest looking member in our party. The prince acquitted himself very well in the fight to follow. As for myself I was attacked and pulled from my horse but was able to get back up and fight off my attacker. Carstein did well in charging in to protect the prince and made an impression on his attacker with an impressive hit from his axe, and then impressively the prince finished of the foul attacker. Then his man servant was also very impressive and proved to be a better fighter than the rest of us and killed another, seeing two of there number drop dead in just 30 seconds made them run like cowards. So an impressive defence of the prince from himself and his man servant with the rest of us (especially Ghetts) were pretty useless. But continuing with the journey we reached a roadside inn, the first we had seen in days, so we decided to have a good meal, a game of cards with a local trader and a decent nights sleep, well sleep for most, I took advantage of having our lovely lady traveller with us Ulrika, and we didn’t do much sleeping, in fact I think I pulled a muscle…
Over dinner and cards we were interested by the traders mentioning a tribe of orcs called the Blood Axe Alliance, this was a name that Ghetts remembered and gave us some history behind them, they were a tribe and quite a vicious one at that it disappeared without any word just over a century ago.
The next morning with most of the party rested we got on with the journey, we travelled most of the day barely stopping all day, but as nightfall approached we came across a ruined town which had had its population slaughtered along with two dead orcs, these orcs had a very strange symbol on there shoulders that looked like 4 axes dripping blood, myself and Diggs could quite guess what it meant but Ghetts suggested it could be the Blood Axe alliance back. We set watches for the night and all was good after my first watch, on the third watch however we were woken up by Diggs on watch screaming as he seemed to be attacked by wolves, however as he screamed the wolves ran away, so I don’t know how vicious they were, but he seemed honest enough. Apart from that small alarm the night went without problems, which was nice!
The next morning was quite interesting as we met with some soldiers, these were sent by a friend of a friend of the prince apparently none of them looked to be wealthy and none spoke Reikspeil so no chances of card games. We continued down the road with these new soldiers however Ghetts didn’t seem to trust them so I spoke the to princes man servant and got the gossip that he didn’t trust this soldier now in charge, but it wasn’t his place to say. But taking on his distrust we set watches over the night and in fact we also did a secrete watch of the watches, by having a sleeper watch where one of our party would pretend to be asleep just keeping a eye on everything, however Carstein fall asleep and didn’t wake Ferg for his shift so when Diggs was on the last watch of the night he was distracted by the soldier he was on guard with and sadly the prince’s throat was slit and he died quietly without waking us. We did however get woken and we found a soldier with a sword at our throat and none of our weapons around us… Things are not looking good for our hero’s!
But the soldiers released us as they herd a war cry from what appeared to be orcs, and with this we were able to slide out into the forest I chose to leave my horse as I thought that falling off it throughout the forest would have been less productive for my running away efforts!
As we ran, and ran, and kept running for the next 2 hours of night when we came out of the forest we were further down south than we previously had been, but we had come out close to a town and the smell of the food that was being cooked was impressive. We were welcomed in to the town and treated to a top quality meal, this was very welcome and for there generosity we spoke to the towns elder about the orcs, but he seemed to not be worried, as apparently when your numbers up, your numbers up…
But he did seem helpful and handed us a letter that needed to be given to a friend of his who lived only a few hours to the east, this was helpful for us as he was in with the traders heading north – where we needed to go, so we started another journey. This few hour journey however was not a few hours as it was near sunset where we approached a farm, when we got to the farm however this was not the farm we wanted to get to that was still a few hours to the east… but we sat down with the kindly farm folk and ate more good food, we spoke to the farmers and were asked about an old emperor, I remembered that he was in power just over 100 years ago, things were looking to be very strange, and even stranger when we asked what year was it they answered very strangely, they said it was a date 100 years out. There was then some knocking at the gates and I took the lead to see who it was and when I approached I couldn’t see anyone, I then looked down and saw a dwarf, he was muddy and looked very tired, the farmers turned to me (obviously seeing a true leader) and I accepted him into the relatively safety of the farm. He told of stories of the blood axe alliance chasing him. We were then treated to some great entertainment in which we took part in, with our fair maiden produced some great singing, sadly our soldier tried some impersonations but didn’t go down well with our guests, I stepped up and showed some skilled slight of hand vanishing a coin and then making it reappear like magic – this went down brilliantly. We then decided to talk more in the morning after a good nights sleep. But when we woke up something very strange happened, we were in the open… there was nothing left around us, plants were growing on any bits of building that was left, I judged the buildings to be around 100 years old, the river was still flowing at the bottom of the cliff, I went to have a look, and what I saw was very strange a corpse, small in armour clutching a bag, we instantly concluded this must have been dwarf we met last night, but he was completely decomposed… we sent Diggs down to have a look and it was indeed the dwarf we met last night and Diggs recovered his bag, but what he brought back with him no one could read as it was in khazalid and sadly the dwarf in the party couldn’t read or write so he couldn’t read it! But then Carstein announced he could read it so he put on his glasses and read what it said. He described all about the doomstones – 4 stones made by the dwarves that should never be brought together, sadly they have fallen into the wrong hands – the orcs, and the letter also said there was a dwarf lore master held up in a cave with the final of the 4 doomstones under a waterfall. We then decided we should investigate.

Line 2 colleges should be colleagues'
Line three their not there and later
or should be our
rocket should be capital R
Prince should be capital throughout

Some of the sentence construction is a bit iffy too!
