The Path of a Windwalker - Kazimir Resnik

A notebook by Kazimir Resnik about the faith of Shaundakul, and maybe other things.

[OOC note: The faith of Shaundakul is before ToT very small still. It gains in popularity after ToT and with Waukeen gone. It would thus be little known and have few priests. I'm aware of that reading about the god can make it slightly confusing!]

[The entries are in no particular order and are written in the Damaran language, with Dethtek runes (dwarven alphabet). The writing itself is sloppy and has many mistakes - for sake of readability and that I'm only capable of making genuine writing mistakes myself, I'll leave the reader to imagine this.]

[[The text appears to be some kind of study of Shaundakul's dogma with sloppy notes written about each point of study.]]

Spread the teachings of the Helping Hand by example.

"Let deeds speak."


Work to promote him among traders, especially trailblazers who seek out new lands and new opportunities.

Offer a Helping Hand, guard their journey or offer other assistance.


Unearth and resanctify ancient shrines of Shaundakul.

...they are rare is some regions.


Ride the wind, and let it take you wherever it blows.

There are some places I'd rather not be.


Aid those in need, and trust in the Helping Hand.

Not only travellers. 'In need' up to personal interpretation...


Seek out the riches of the earth and sea.

Dungeons and caverns tend to be made of earthly matters such as stone. Go adventure.


Journey to distant horizons.

Keep moving.


Be the first to see the rising sun, the mountain peaks, the lush valleys.

Quite sure others have seen it but... poetic.


Let your footsteps fall where none have tread.

Avoid stepping in manure.

[[The entry is written in Shou lettering, arranged in columns which are then read from top to bottom down a column, and right to left across columns.]]


This is the way it is.

What had it been, fourteen years? An unexpected meeting, again. There seemed little sense in hiding that I had borrowed the book. Unsurprisingly, he did not berate or judge, simply said it can be returned when done with.

The conversation was short, we knew each other only fleetingly. Yet I could see he had made achievements. It brought thoughts to my own. I am less detached than I ought to be - finding myself too attached. The feeling is an uncomfortable one. Our paths crossed just after the attack on the refugee camp. Illusionary magic certainly is interesting.


Then there is anger. I have to watch it carefully.


And disappointment.


Though it is anger which makes itself more known, a presence which is difficult to ignore.



Having looked at the entry again... The words I wrote on it might not be true, either. It hardly matters.



"Don't wait to do it. You never know when you'll run out of time."

"Meditation can clarify things for you. And death is always at hand. Two very good reasons to practice regularly, often, and soon."
