23 Dravago 1004 YK

It has come to my attention that my lack of available time in a day has started to become an incredible burden. So I have decided that in order to better manage my time, I would keep an accurate time log of my day, so that I may better evaluate my time usage and perhaps come up with a better method of making more use of the 24 hours we are allotted each day.

7:00 AM
I am woken each morning by Sparky, having been instructed the night prior to awake me at 7:00AM sharp. The homunculus, being able to tell time wakes me in the morning with a quick sharp bark. I’ve wondered how he is actually able to tell time, is it just a function of the magic that binds him to follow all orders, or he is cognitive of the significance of the number of rings of the clock in the guild’s main hall. Further research may be needed there.

7:25 AM
Washing, toiletries, and changing into the day’s clothes completed, head up stairs for breakfast. Eggs and toast, with a restoration potion to wash it down. This lack of significant sleep time has begun to wear upon my eyes, and while studies have shown no ill bodily effects from long term reliance on restoration potions, I do think Aluatris may be correct that my reliance on them has gone on far too long. But with research projects often keeping me up into the early hours of the morning, I rarely get more than a few hours of sleep a night. It is said the plane of Dal Quor Time moves ten times slower than the material plane, so if one were to transport there would they be able to devote ten hours to rest and only have one hour pass in the material plane? Further research needed.

7:45 AM
Another trip to the bathroom to settle some biological systems, then assembling tools to prepare for the day’s work, before activating my teleportation ring to teleport to the small office used by my scheduler. Sarah who I hired to schedule and maintain my work queue has a list of jobs ready for me, and a status of how far in advance I’m booked. I have found it best to rent my services on an hourly block basis, so that I am not held late for other jobs, as in the past I had problems with trying to accomplish too many things in one day. Further by charging by the hour, those seeking my services tend not to waste time on trivial things, nor dump large projects upon me without proper notice. Right now according to Sarah, my planner is full for the next opening in my schedule is three weeks from now on Zor, at 2:00 PM. I have no shortage of work any time soon.

7:50 AM
After wishing Sarah a good morning, it is time to head to my first task, charging and installing everbright crystals in residence in the House Deneith Enclave

8:53 AM
The house was larger than I expected, but the installation went very smoothly. It is something I have done several times in the past, and have gotten quite good at it. The next job is repairing a floating enchantment on the sign above a potion vendor in the House Kunderak Enclave.

9:59 AM

The sign was much more massive than I had estimated, and took a large amount of my energy to re-enchant. I may be a couple minutes late to my next task, repairing an iron defender for a man who lives in the harbor.

10:45 AM

Unfortunately my last task appeared to be a setup from House Cannith. They have been hounding me lately, trying to figure out a way to get rid of my small enchanting and magical repair service, apparently because I charge much less than their set rates. The unsavory fellow at the house had a beat up Iron Defender with the serial number scratched off. A sure sign it was stolen, or at least wanted it to look stolen. As per House Cannith’s agreement with The Coin Lords, all Iron Defenders in the city must be registered and have a serial number imprinted under their chest armor plate, and this model had the number scratched off. The fellow started to get angry and threatening upon which Sparky began to growl at him as the man began to take an aggressive stance towards me. I informed him I would be in direct violation of the law if I repaired the shoddy iron defender, and held responsible for anything it did after I had fixed it. The man attempted to bar my exit, at which point I deemed it best to escape before any hostilities could be started and activated my teleportation ring, returning me to my office.

11:00 AM

With my previous appointment a bust, my fourth appointment of the morning is for House Orien, checking up on one of their Lightning Post mailboxes, that has apparently been acting up. According to Sarah, they paid extra to bump another job back, must be something important.

11:49 AM

Apparently somebody attempted to mail a kobold, which was causing all sorts of fits in the mechanics of the mail box. The poor creature, who has been stuck in there for the last two days was set free, and the minor damage he inflicted upon the inner workings of the post box was easy to repair. As house Orien instructed, I placed all the backed up mail I could salvage in a large box and the lightning post magically teleported it back to Orien’s sorting center to be redistributed again.

12:00 PM

Lunch with Aluatris, possible the best hour of the day. Our schedules are so horribly conflicted, the hour we share for lunch is sometimes the only time we meet. We came to an agreement some time ago to try a different restaurant as much as possible, today we are eating at a small open aired cafe in the House Jorasco Enclave, run by a very nice halfling that serves Talenta delicacies.

12:50 PM

As often is the case, I am usually writing in the presence of Aluatris, I believe she has gotten used to my small habit, and she knows I can pay attention to our conversation while writing at the same time. Upon asking me, I informed her that today I was keeping track of my daily tasks so that I might find a better way to manage my time, and hopefully squeeze out a few more hours here and there to devote to research. She pointed out I better squeeze out a few more hours to devote to our relationship too, which I wholeheartedly agreed with. If this does work, I will recommend it for her to try to as well. My afternoon seems to be devoted to the Chorster household. Bearer seems to have requested my services to inspect her oven and stove. I fixed it quite properly last time, and am unsure what could possible be wrong with it.

1:30 PM
After a thorough inspection, it is quite clear that the stove, oven, and cold box are all functioning perfectly in the Chorster household. After inspecting them, Bearer has insisted I watch her bake, as she thinks something has been causing a problem while she cooks chocolate chip cookies. I have noticed I’ve been humming something as I worked, and realized it was a tune Aluatris was humming during lunch. I am unsure if she did it on purpose to lift my mood with her bardic abilities, or if she did it subconsciously, but it has still worked all the same to give me a smile.

2:30 PM
Several batches of cookies of various flavors have been baked, and still no problems with the oven. I am starting to suspect Bearer has hired me here solely to stuff me full of baked goods.

3:30 PM
More baked goods, and some stove top cooked laters, all of the magical enchanted appliances in the Chorster Household are indeed working perfectly, and I think I’ve eaten my weight in cookies and brownies. I have always wondered about the construct, she is much older than most modern warforged, having been created to raise Master Palerose, but was that her original purpose, or was she repurposed from something else? I have always been too embarrassed to bring up the conversation as much as in intrigues me, as asking a warforged, or in this case a paddedforged their maker and purpose would be like asking another sentient being who their parents were and why did they decide to produce you? A rather rude question, in my opinion anyway.

4:00 PM
I finally have pulled myself away from the onslaught of baked goods, with the day’s tasks completed I stop at the Phoenix for quick mug of tea before returning to the guild’s workshop to begin fresh research. After unlocking the magical energy of plasma some time ago, I’ve yet to find much use for it outside of tossing at things to blow them up. There is so much potential energy there, it must be harnessable.

7:23 PM
I have lost track of time in the workshop, unfortunately. The plasma seems to slice through any containment system I’ve tried, from adamantine to obsidian, it just slices right through it. The only way to contain it is with an electrical field, that currently uses up much more magical energy than the plasma could possibly produce. I have considered perhaps if there is someway to polarize a metal surface so that it creates a magnetic field, will have to do more tests with iron.

8:24 PM
Aluatris brought me dinner, a nice chicken pie from the guild’s kitchens. I tried my best to explain my current research project to her, but I think it may be a little beyond her, in fact I’m not sure if it isn’t beyond me. Some limited success with small amounts of plasma being deflected by a magnetized strip of iron, so may be able to look into that more tomorrow.

8:49 PM
Aluatris is pulling me away from the workshop, some much needed time together. Luckily she brought dinner to me while the Plasma was well contained and I could easily absorb it and leave the construction project for a later time.

11:40 PM
Aluatris has fallen asleep, but my brain is still quite active. My body and eyes are fatigued though, so I have drunk a restoration potion after I had slipped out of her room and back down to the workshop. The magnetized iron might be the key to sorting out what to do with the plasma.

3:40 AM
Success! After much tinkering and working, I’ve managed to create several long curved strips of magnetised iron and gotten a small ball of plasma to travel in a circle along the path. Although I’m still not sure what I can do with this, I think I’m onto something with harnessing it, now if I can get it to push something or turn a wheel... the possibilities. Unfortunately, I need to get up for the next day’s tasks in just over three hours, so it is time for some sleep. I’ve found the grogginess side effect of an antihistamine helps me find sleep, and prevents stuffy noses at night.
