Still hiding out. I'm trying desperately to stay off people's (things') radar until I can get away.
I did manage to get back into my room after a while, though they're still monitoring me. I'm using one of Dea's zany theoretical thingies- some kind of mystical 'keep out' sign, apparently- to keep them from coming into the room itself, and that at least seems to work fine. Not that I should trust that at all.
Dea's journal talks more about magic the later I read. I'm not sure if she was getting crazier of if she was just finding more out, but I'm using every resource I find, and if that's one of them then good for me, I guess. Runes and magic circles and stuff, mostly. It seems like nonsense, but so does a monster that kills you, pulls your organs out and hangs you in a tree.
I've got some supplies and stuff, but I don't have everything, so I'm tentatively making plans to get out of here around New Year's. I know, I know, I'm taking too long, but I'm thinking that I'm better off gathering everything now than running out of supplies later. It'll be a while before it's safe for me to stop anywhere for longer than an hour or so.
So- see you when I have more to report? I guess?
