Relationship Note on Niklas

I don't believe I've ever heard an islander say "Rum is not as good as ..."

Rum is not as good as brandy, but it can be improved on in a pinch. I came up with this my last time in Stormward. It is called a Minty Nik. A small handful of mint leaves. Two lime quarters. A cube of brown sugar. Delicately smash everything so as not to tear the leaves. Add as much rum as you feel you need. Stir.

The business is going... surprisingly well! I've gotten commissions from a bunch of different people, and business is generally pretty steady. I think I can make a regular income out of this as I teach myself my crafts. I'm going to focus a bit on improving my woodworking skills as well as my talents as a clothier as these seem to be very popular. But as to what to specialize in... who knows? I have the rest of my life to decide that. For now, I must learn!

Relationship Note on Barric

The little rubber ball that Prince Barric gave to Atila was doomed for a short life. Once Tempest discovered it both he and Atila playfully fought over the thing. There are little bits of torn leather everywhere. I am pretty sure Tempest also ate a few of them. Nothing in the manor is safe from him.

Relationship Note on Thena

You should have a day off more often! Really. Might allow you to pick up an instrument or three and master them! Make a Knight of Solace band to beat the Templars'?

Relationship Note on Thena

A day off! Perfect. General advise:

Bathe in hot water. Have a delicious luncheon, then take a nap in the middle of the day. Spend some time with a book you haven't had the chancr to read. It is a lovely summer day; go for a walk with your dog and tell anyone who asks you to do something you're off duty.

Life is a gift, you know.

As some of you may know, Dame Emilia Godsworn of the Templars won the bidding on me at the Knights of Solace auction. Instead of spending the time with me, she has requested that I...take a day off.

So here I am.

I must admit I’m at a bit of a loss...

A friend of mine said I should start saving my ads in the journals for posterity because they are just that good! I think that's a great idea! Scholars in the future should be able to look back and learn about the FANTASTIC WORK of the Director of Marketing for the Murder of Crows and Highway Robbery! So here's my latest!

* * *

PEOPLE OF ARX!

Did you see Princess Tikva Grayson's proclamation about the Day of Presents and think, "That's kind of strange?" Did it cross your mind, "I wish she had given us some more notice?" Are you thinking, "Well, now that everyone else is doing it, I guess I need to do it, too, or else I'll seem like a cheapskate?"

HIGHWAY ROBBERY HAS YOU COVERED!

Come on down to the Lowers' finest pawn shop slash furniture store slash book seller slash liquor distributor and pick up something for the special, loved, or obligatory person in your life! From the 200 silver word find that says "hey, at least I got you SOEMTHING" to the Prince Tyrval figurine your loved one might need to round out her collection, we have gifts for every budget and taste! Get a book! Get some rare, exclusive booze from Rancoteur Brewing! Get some furniture FOR your booze. Or get our package deal of a figurine plus a mantle of displaying, which you get by buying each separately from us and giving them as a package deal to someone else! Here at Highway Robbery, we know how to say, "hey, it's the thought that counts, and this was really last minute, so go easy on me, okay?"

Your friends, lovers, and family will love it! And if they don't, remember: NO REFUNDS!

Relationship Note on Calaudrin

I confess: As a voice of a ducal house, I am not one much to travel to the Lower Boroughs.

But for my friends in House Riven (and at the prodding of my wife, Monique), I made the journey. The Riven Brandy that Guardsman Calaudrin prepared was quite something. A strong proof and with the taste of fresh pears picked straight from the trees, I would say that it is a true gem among the liquors that are found in the Crownlands.

As I feared, my coin purse was lifted during the event. And yet it was returned by the end.

Hm.

My cousin may be shy, but she is sweet and sensible. And a splendid artist.

Not sure if her pet is a cat or a rabbit, though...

Tea is a simple pleasure.

Hot leaf water. That's all. Different varieties of leaves, often mixed with spices, herbs, or even dried fruit, but still: hot leaf water.

Aside from the flavor and the comforting warmth, I think what I most like about it is that it transcends class. The poorest of the poor can boil water in a dented old pot over a small fire, having bartered for a handful of dusty, crumbled tea leaves with a pilfered trinket. Lords and ladies indulge in the finest black, green, and herbal teas, either cultivated in continental Arvum or shipped from the Isles, steeped at just the right temperature and poured from an ornate silver teapot.

I am most fortunate that in serving nobility, I have access to the finer things. But I confess that I occasionally miss the bitter pauper's tea, made palatable by just the tiniest pinch of cinnamon and cloves, and milk "borrowed" from the neighbor's cow.

Master Ezekiel is such a talented musician and singer. Hopefully I'll be able to see another of his performances in the future.

I've had such a wonderful week. I've been able to spend time my family, I've met with old friends and made new ones. I've been to so many events and all of it has been positively lovely. The gardens are so beautiful too. I feel very blessed to be alive.

The journey from Lyon's Redoubt to Arx was a considerable one, but it was well worth the distance traveled, just to expand my horizons and take in sights and places I have never before seen. I arrived at Lyonesse Chateau as of yesterday afternoon, and for the duration of the Marquessa's absence it has been decided that my duty and responsibility is to act as her Voice. It was a position I had not anticipated in the slightest, but I am determined to study and learn what is necessary to act in her stead. Already I have encountered several kind people who have given advice and guidance, and for their good will I am very grateful. It is my hope I will encounter many more along the way, and when time permits, venture out into the city proper to explore. I have been told the menagerie is a must-see location, but what else is out there, I wonder? I am eager to find out.

Didn't expect to be sent a an entry of the whites about myself, not today. Thank you, Merek. I don't think I deserve your friendship or your admiration, but it humbles me nonetheless. Thank you.

Relationship Note on Arn

I sincerely worry about the health of anyone that might hold their breath waiting for my father to be anything except what he is. Fortunately, I have grown desensitized to it over time and the simple truth is that I like him just the way he is. He's done wonders for the sharpening of my wit as I grew up for certain!

The Guildmaster is a wonderful friend, and I find my own self hoping that she comes back and creates more new things eventually. I quite like the designs that she comes up with. When I came back and settled in from the war, she helped me with acclimating back in. She supports all of us within the Guild well.

I am happy that colder seasons will be coming, and look forward to making my fireplace more useful. I know I'm not like many others, who quite like the spring and summer, and well to an extent, I do also, however I like it when it's winter and rainy.

If I was a man or had a man-ish body to cover, I'd only order from Aaron. His work is -spectacular-.
