-- My Journal --
After travelling for days, I've finally found it: the ruins of the town once known as Hamlet. This place is a veritable wasteland! Almost nothing is left of the grand buildings I read about in the history books.
The only structure still standing is the entrance to the mines; it is quite large, and the door only opens one way. It seems once I go in, there is no coming out... but I am determined to dispel whatever evil has taken this place, and so I must proceed.
My only hope is that my quest not be in vain... Gods above: protect me as I enter this forsaken place!
