0rkie's Journal 30 September 1971

After expending every effort to sneak our party through the lands of the Dalle & Arrogante, I was at my wits' end as to how to attain reaching the temple.

All of a sudden I saw, rising from the desert, a small oasis which formed a narrow wedge between the territories of the two combatants. This was the oasis of Vall and there in its' midst was the yawning opening of a natural tunnel, (a hole in the vall, so to say).

I turned to lead my party through this windfall only to find that, led by Leaper Cohn, (having smelled the mushrooms & having snapped out of his comatose state), they were already halfway through so I darted after them.

Toward the tunnels' end I joined our group, gaily beating down poor Leaper who was pawing at the sand like a ruddy beagle in an effort to get to the temple first. It became necessary to break out nine quarts of our medicinal mescal & pour it down his throat to calm down the blighter. As the last bottle drained, Leaper now resembled little more than a wet spot in the sand and there we left him & turned toward the sun to see our goal.

I'1l cover the journal entry when we reach the temple but for now I'd best catch up with old Jerk-O before he gets lost).
