"We set out at dawn on orders from Governor Alvari. She's heard rumor of luminous adra at a place called Poko Kohara. Unfortunately, the place is said to be surrounded by storms, and it doesn't appear on any of our charts, but we're told the locals at Tikawara may be able to help.
"I'd heard stories of bad run-ins with Huana tribes, but Chieftain Ruānu and the tribe at Tikawara welcomed us warmly. Fed us as well as could be expected and marked Poko Kohara on our maps. He seems to believe the storms are magical, or else the will of the gods. I hold out hope that they can be stopped.
"Left for Poko Kohara this morning. Vektor wasn't happy about being left behind, but he was too sick to travel and Beza was losing patience. Haven't seen a Rauataian ship since we left Neketaka, but she's still afraid they'll beat us there.
"Storms were some of the worst I've seen, but we made it. We set up camp by the cliffs, but we're all looking forward to getting into the ruins. At least it'll be dry in there.
"We lost Gian and Olara today. I don't know what, but something about this place seems off. The others feel it, too.
"The murals here are incredible - proof that the Engwithans met ancient Huana two thousand years ago! That they might have even built this place! I keep trying to explain this to Beza, but she won't listen.
"We found the top of the adra vein. It is glowing, but Beza says we have to go deeper."
