Journal entry[edit | edit source]

7 Feainn 1203
The attacks have grown more forceful. The residents of the nearby village who oppose my presence become more aggressive by the day. They do not like that I speak the truth about their former deities. They cannot understand they will only find salvation in Lebioda. They threaten me with death, but if I am to die for Lebioda, if that is the destiny the Prophet has marked out for me, I shall fulfill it with a broad smile on my face.
14 Feainn 1203
I have just parted with a most marvelous guest, a true convert, a man of extraordinary yearning for truth and faith. He is called Merten and was once a witcher but has abandoned that dishonorable trade and embarked on the path of truth. We spoke at length and sat together for hours in meditation and prayer. To better honor Lebioda he left behind here many goods which symbolized his attachment to his former life. He has made great progress – oh, If only all the disciples of Lebioda were so fervent in their faith, this world would be a better place!
Merten confessed to me the bitter truth about the foul deeds he had wrought in his past life. I told him if he is to obtain cleansing, he must go to the Hidden Chapel. Reaching this bleak place, which is carved out of rock and ridden with dangerous creatures, will in itself constitute a challenge and a trial – if Lebioda lets him enter the chapel’s confines, it means he has forgiven his sins, his crimes. And so Merten went… Let Lebioda guide his feet.
19 Feainn 1203
My fate is sealed. I shall die for my faith, for truth, for Lebioda. This night folk from the village, a band of drunken thugs, attacked the temple. With hate and malice on their breath they cried that since I am the Great Beggar, I should now beg Lebioda for mercy. They looted the temple of all its treasures (thankfully leaving the books, which they deemed worthless) and walled me in to wither in a sealed tomb... If Lebioda does not send me help, I will die here. May my bones bear witness to his glory.
