My Lady I think you should get land and name it Whitetorch, its really astounding as it rolls off the tongue. I apologize as for some reason I am really tired tonight. We, and by we I mean CrIsis and Master Jershon faced off and defeated some Ratling folk we thought were under the control of the Arch Fiend, Ratel. Whom was present as well before being defeated by us – again. However, after all that we come to find out the giant 20 foot tall rat creature they brought along is actually the dark god in charge of the Zealotry, Kirgi, himself!
I still have a hard time believing with everything I have seen that we lived through the encounter. This is a far cry from that “time” we were nearly destroyed by Lopnel. Had Bast not brokered a deal for our continued existence then I believe my blood would be rock decorations. Alas not tables are beginning to turn and alongside Master Jershon a dark god fled before our combined might! Well our gear and experience has improved, we are not the same make up from three years ago (2 and a half).
I fear I am digressing from the point involving this missive…
…I have a favor to ask. It will not be small, but it may be useful.
I need to steal you away from the King. Okay, that could have been worded better but I don’t have anything to take the ink off without starting over, please let me explain to you and my king. At this point you may have heard about the death of Master Kel-Ed of the Tri-Arcanum Guild. Both Father Indaris and I received a “Summons” to show up by the 20th of next month. I intend to run for the position of High Weaver / Lead Weaver. I even invented a new spell for the event! Now, here is where I could use the favor.
I might actually win. Your majesty I was suprised by that very thought as I am sure you were about trusting our little band and having it work out for you and the land I get to call my home away from my tribe and wife. Oh I forgot to mentioned it – I am married now, more on that later. Should I win I will need someone I trust to run one third of one of the most famous magic guilds in all of Palladium! I would like that person to be Lady Ondemeira.
I am sure there are benefits to having an ear in such an institution. But what I want to do is open up a branch of the Tri-Arcanum within the borders of your kingdom sire. If anyone could give you the feedback as to whether this is a guild you want to allow within its borders Lady Ondemeira would be in the perfect position to evaluate such an organization.
Lastly, we will be en route on the morrow for Credia for Rogtilda’s farewell voyage. The soul within the ship making it alive has grown to old and I believe the ship and soul will ascend to the Ma’ip on the Festival of Apis. You should know it chose to pass from this world in the country it considered its home, Timiro. Hopefully we will be able to pick up our new ship and make haste to slay the Necromancer in the northern islands.
Sorry I am yawning and must end this missive before I spill some ink. See you both soon.
