Coded journal entry #3, Third Age, circa 2941
This parchment contains a note, but its author and intended recipient remain, ultimately, unrevealed. Is this a dispatch of some kind? A recounting of great deeds? Poetry? The note is coded and its message remains indecipherable.
"The damn flies seem to be following me. I can't hardly go nowhere without them buzzing around.
I was going to scout Thaurband, the slave city. The Orcs got a prison there, and enough people in chains to run the mines and the mills and make the city go. But there it was, one stinking fly. I could hear it buzzing, but couldn't see it or squash it.
Thing was following me, I swear. I was out on a skiff, middle of the Sea of Núrnen and the fly was coming along for the ride. Like it knew! Following me, like. All the time: ZZZZZ ZZZZZ.
I can't get the buzzing and humming to stop. It don't matter whether I'm sleeping or eating or squatting. I can hear 'em. They're in my damned head!
MAKE… 'EM… STOP!"
