[This journal is well-loved and made of shoddy material, it's pages from a former holder are torn out to make room for more ramblings. The cover of this book has a disturbingly detailed eye, carved by blade into the leather.]

I awake, naked, afraid, alone. I know not where I am, or where my companions went. Rogvald, Mayrina, Aldus.. I must be upon another plane, yes, I must contact a wizard or some other spellcaster upon this queer place to take me home. There has to be someone who can take me back home. In the meantime, I have acquired some garbs and found myself some shelter within the Ward known as the Peerage.. It is like a perversion of my home, Cormyr, familiar yet wrong. They appear to be currently embroiled in some affair called the banner tournament, how foppish to waste resources on a symbol of prestige.

I was beaten by a pack of bandits the locals call, "dweebs". I know not this word and I hope to not stay here long enough to learn the local lingo, luckily these "dweebs" only took a vial of Ghostly Visage from my pack, leaving me my hundreds of golden lions alone, enough to purchase equipment and get to Ninety-Five...

 I've spent... I no longer know how long digging in these marshes, alone...
The monotony is only broken by watching bands of "retainers" clutching golden idols wrenched from the swamp's inhabitants. Fools, they won't find a key that way. I have to keep digging, in the day, I can't let the lizardfolk notice me.

 Where is he?
Where is Tyr?
Where am I?
Why.
When.
King?
Wall.
Key.

  I attempted to poison myself today, to wake me from this hellish dream.
I look at myself in the Doorkeeper's shined metal door, and I see a skeletal husk.
Pain is real.
This book is real.
Death is real(?).
I feel.
I feel despair.

 He/She/It/They: Wake.
 I: What?
 He/She/It/They: Find.
 I: What are you.. A demon?
 He/She/It/They: My name is the key to all things.  S'AI
 I: What do you want from me?
 Sa'i: Find the way.
 I: What.. Way?
 Sa'i: When the world quakes, and the light shines, you will know it as the way.

 I saw Sa'i.
It gave me wings.
I flew above the city.
I saw the way.
I must find the way.
The way.
The way.

Me
  Hundreds of ring runners pass me. I am in the muck, worth none's time. This suits me fine.
I needed time, time to think. To learn what I am, what occurred.
I do not remember this journal, I do not remember this drawing. I remember seeing it, I remember hearing it.
There was a scratching sound in my head, then came the voice. It taught me what I need to know.
Then I saw him/her/it/they, S'AI. It spoke, it guided, it told me my name.

Philothea.

I am insignificant, but I have a purpose, I have a way.

 I saw a beam of golden LIGHT.
It reached towards heaven, like an ant's antennae to the sky. I raised my own skinny limbs in mimicry, reaching, hoping. I was not taken.

SA'I
My way is not so easily reached. These rings, this city, this world. The air, reeks of fetid and rotting secrecy. The people like oozing sores of deceit and self-service. They do not share what they know, foul. This is against HIM/IT/THEY/SHE

I must learn.
I must challenge.

 The veins.
The veins.
The veins.

SA'I

 I remember my children.
Do I?
Illusion?
