For all those still needing arms and armor:

The hours are growing short, and the forges burn day and night. If you need anything, please request it now, that it not be last minute. I cannot speak for all the other smiths, but I know I have a current list of requests that will take me a week or two to work through as it stands.

I am a bad vassal. Despite my better efforts to encourage my liege lord, Duke Asger is still unwed. If only Lady Blackwood hadn't left us all and caused such trouble. I should help save face for the family I serve and help ensure our dear Duke Asger is married with an heir. I know often others seem to read these, perhaps someone will read this and get to know our Duke. He's a fierce warrior with a great love for his people and his lands. He even likes otters. Surely someone so devoted to his people deserves a good wife to help him. I shall have to try harder to better serve the noble families that have offered me such shelter and kindness and opportunity as a healer.

So. I am going to Stormwall. I will be heading there to help run the healers within the castle. I am afraid. But the Thirteenth teaches us that hiding from our fears does not mean they go away. I embrace my fear. I acknowledge my fear. But I do not let it prevent me from what I must do. I look to the gods to show me the way. By their virtues I am made better. I follow the lessons they teach and honor them with my adherence to their ways.

But I am still afraid.

I just will not let it hinder me.

I cannot say I know the feeling exactly the same - but I see the preparations, and help with those that I can. Having marched to war before, there is a call that I can heed, in a number of capacities.

Sometimes, though, the hardest choice is to remain where you are and do what needs doing.

Well, now that it's official, it's true, I'll be Marquis-Consort of Lyon's Redoubt. I'm very proud of it, too.

I feel like a liar, though I told the truth as I knew it. I told a great many people I was ready to go to war, and I am. That I'm prepared to face the enemy coming at us from across the waves. I swore allegiance, I've already fought battles, but now the largest of the clashes are ahead of us and I find myself consigned to remaining in Arx.

All my talk of valor and efforts eventually led to my earning the title of Officer in the Iron Guard, and with that comes the responsibility of leadership. I still feel unprepared for that role, more suited to facing the enemy as just another blade on the front lines. Yet they do not lack for people who can serve that role.

Nor would I be worthy of the trust given me if I were to just run off and leave those men and women in my charge without leadership. May Lagoma help me to grow into the boots I now fill, and may the Sentinel help me to fidget less in them.

I had the most delightful of days today. It seems the gloom has finally lifted from my brow. Perhaps... perhaps...

I was so happy when Edain said we could name the baby for my father if it was a boy. He's so sweet. Dark hair like us, his eyes are blue, I hope they stay blue. For now he seems to mostly want to watch until he's too tired to look at the world and sleep. I can't imagine leaving him to his nurse while we go fight, but that is what we must do. For now I want to steal every moment I can with this small person in case the worst should happen.

May your hopes find safe harbors.

Relationship Note on Caspian

Thank the Gods. I would never want to take work from the guild. I do believe the Princesses mean champion in a more informal sense. Though if they desired to use me as champion in a duel I hope you would excuse me in accepting as long as it did not interfere with my oaths. I will do my best to steer their attentions to the guild, instead.

Oh no! There is nothing that I am upset about. Just trying to get work for those in The Champion's Guild, though I wasn't sure the context of their white journal. I have no ill will towards you.

If I've offended you somehow Caspian, I am so very sorry for whatever it is I may have done and I hope with enough hard work and shared drinks I can earn your forgiveness.

*A sketch of an ornate helmet, complete with a delicate face-mask rendered to resemble the late lady Niamh Greenmarch*

The first piece is done. Costly, but worth it. Time-consuming, but a work of passion. To honour the first Paragon, and hopefully start a tradition that can be upheld, down the years.

To both Princess Caith and Princess Saoirse, if you are seeking a Champion, don't go to Sir Jeffeth. Unless it's some other kind of Champion you need that doesn't involve duels. Then feel free to go to Sir Jeffeth.

Relationship Note on Reigna

My wife. I am so very proud of her and how much she has grown in the time that I have known her. Sometimes I wonder how much is her growth and how much was my inability to see the truth of her. She has worked hard and tirelessly and I am pleased to see her appointment as the Physician's Guild's Guildmaster. I know that she will give all of herself to this. I know she will give more than she has, at times, as well.

I encouraged her to take the position if she believed she was the correct one for the job. Even as I am proud of her, I mourn the sacrifices that will come: the times where she is away to her duties and me to mine even if not physically apart, the nights apart, and the dangers that arise with such a position.

Yet this is a time of sacrifice for us all.

I have been trying to sketch out something that will portray Farhaven as an eventual painting, hopefully to be hung in the villa. My skill with details - mountains, trees, frozen landscapes - is likely in great need of tutoring. After my experience at the recent ritual of the thirteen lamps, however, I am more inspired to work with the colors of fire I think. Swaths of red and gold, hints of brilliant ice-blue... Perhaps if I return from Stormwall, I will seek out true instruction for more detailed work of the former painting once I complete the latter.

The ceremony itself... I am still finding it difficult to fetch the right words with which to describe it. Changing, perhaps, is one.

The duel of champions between Princess Caith Thrax and Princess Saoirse Velenosa will simply be far more interesting if they share a champion. Will he have to battle himself, I wonder?

...Hey.

Wanna share a champion? can you share a champion? Apparently Jeffeth spread himself too thin and promised both of us the same thing.

Men.
