A recovered worn journal amidst Hearthglen

(( Just for a little more RP flavor in the north. ))

*Within the Barracks of Hearthglen, a recently recovered journal lies on one of the tables; the parchments quite worn and old, the cover dusty with dried crimson stains. Reports indicate that it has been recovered from a pile of flesh north of Gahrron's Withering. The text is written with a rough typography, with no regard to structure nor demeanor.
