Expedition to Castle Ravenloft (Mavrickindigo)

Journal Entry (Kess)

I’ve been trying to shake this thought since the garden. When I gazed into the stagnant pond earlier it occurred to me that the cyclops never threatened us. Once the thought crossed my mind I couldn’t quite shake it and at best shoved it to the back of my mind. It came back while we were digging that grave, I’m still not sure but the more and more I thought about it the more it seemed we burst into a bar and murdered the owner for…….why did we? I did a good job of keeping it to myself until we met Algon the Ever-Seeking again. I remember giggling at him destroying that zombie only for him to remind me of what we did which certainly did little for my composure. It wasn’t right what we did, destroying evil is one thing but murdering a bar owner when we have no idea what his crimes were is just wrong. That thought rang through my head over and over and yet now I learn its for naught. The bar owner, Algon, Bern, none of them are people. Just constructs of wax made to imitate men, were any of them real at any point? Were they always constructs or are they the mirror image of someone who once lived? I think I’ll keep these thoughts to myself, what we did was wrong yes but no reason to bring it up with the others unless they ask. Nothing we can change about discussing it anyways, I just need to keep trying to do the right thing. As Dad always said over and over like a spinning wheel “It doesn’t matter what a man’s past is, doesn’t matter who he was. What matters is who he is now.”
