I am frustrated with my performance in recent combats. I used to chop through enemies with my mighty axe like a hot knife sliding through butter. The fell at my feet and I laughed at their misfortune for ever having crossed paths with me. Now I watch as even Donnathan and Mikas at times strike enemies down with great force and I can’t help but wonder what has happened? Although I still believe it is wrong to take the life of one that a friend has sworn an oath to kill, perhaps I should apologize to Duhdum for my actions in battle. It is not his fault that I have become weak and useless in battle. I took out my frustration that I could not complete my own job on him, there is no reason that vile being should have ever been allowed to live long enough to run from me as it did. Maybe it is time for me to lay down my axe and allow my party to continue without my holding them back and slowing them down. If by the end of next month I have not returned to my old self, or at least find myself making a decent contribution in battle, I vow here and now to lay down my axe and find another line of work, for it will be clear that Gond has a different path planned for me than the one I am currently following.
