Last Will and Testament of Lady Rosalie Redtyde
My wedding band and the necklace given to me as a wedding gift by my husband are to revert back to Lord Alexandre Redtyde.
My gowns, shoes, and assorted other small blades and hairpins should be given to my cousin, Mistress Helia Andrasko.
My armor is to go to the Scholars that another might have better luck with them.
The diamondplate scalpel won at raffle shall go to the Physician's Guild, the Marquessa Keaton may choose a more worthy wielder than myself.
All money, resources, and materials within my bank account and on my person shall revert to Redtyde.
Any other possessions I own will revert to my husband to be dealt with as he sees fit.
I wish for my black journals to remain sealed.

Relationship Note on Tesha
Man have claimed that the Telmar have covered this up for years hoping that Bliss would go away. Bliss Whisper, by her own admission only came forward about this very recently, and I commend her for doing so. Everard was a terrifying man we have learned and his influence has found ways to extend well past his death. Who knows what allies he still has out there. Coming forward had to be terrifying. However if you believe Everard Telmar could not have hidden this event from his family, you are vastly underestimating him. Do not forget he was aided in this by Addison Ashford (The man that assault Bliss Whisper with him) and he was also quite adept at hiding what he truly was.
Lady Tesha came into all of this blind as a new born babe. I feel she has conducted herself with honor despite being thrust into an impossible situation. It is very easy to say we know the answer or that the answer is simple, but the truth is that none of us can know that until we are thrust into such circumstances. I do not begrudge anyone sharing thier thoughts on this matter, but I ask that we wait to judge until the matter is finally put to rest.
I do wish to thank Lady Tesha for showing the grit that makes me feel pride in my vassals. When your feet where held to the fire you did not flinch.

I don't believe that it should be used as a weapon. Nor should one's hubris be able to use it as a shield against wrongdoing. You do yourself a great disservice and rightfully deserve any mockery that follows. These actions do not pay proper observance to our gods.
Sometimes admitting ones faults can defuse a volatile situation. It's sometimes better to admit rather than bury a past wrong. The gods give us opportunities to seek redemption when we falter. Whenever possible we should seek restitution when in the wrong.
Honor is difficult to defend under the court of public opinion, who seeks to name a villain and a victim. Life I'm afraid is rarely that simple. Rarely do our tales unfold in such black and white terms. It is far too easy to slip between the lines in our quest for justice.
There are cases where keeping ones counsel might be the best course of action. Especially when it's not your own in crisis. When your words might stir the flames.
War may be coming to our people again. Some of us may pass in the coming days. May I suggest whatever burdens that weigh on your soul be purged. Get your affairs in order. Leave gentle words to those you love.

I once believed that these cliffs were a wasted opportunity for a beach. Had the sea been a little gentler or more patient, this entire stretch of shoreline might have been a lovely cove -- but instead, the rocks were too steep for me to climb, and too high for me to dive from, and too dangerous for me to play between. (Or so said my aunt.)
Now I see any number of possibilities. This is the perfect terrain, for example, on which to coax new acquaintances into drinking copious amounts of rum with me while the wind blows majestically through our hair.
A ditty for future diners at the Heath Tavern:
No matter how charming the server
And no matter how potent the brew
The truth of the matter remains that
Seaweed. Isn't. Food.
There was a wedding today. I was briefly mistaken for a pirate, which is either complimentary or mortifying. I haven't yet decided which.
I was reminded of other weddings, which is never a helpful line of thought.
A very drunk man just pulled a missive from the leg of his messenger seagull, ponderously studied the text, and announced that -- according to his cousin's very reliable husband in the Arx court -- the Voice of the Whisper House was just made the new Sword of Telmar.
...that can't be right.

I'll need a new title that while more impressive, still has a humble and staid character that represents well the sober responsibilities of the position. Something that assures others that they're dealing with a capable and experienced official with a suitably keen mind for economics and the discretion and honor required for fair and equitable trade.
Perhaps, something like: Her Most Excellent, Queen Amari, the Peerless Grand Princess of Coin and Supreme Silver Sovereign, Blessed First Treasurer and Holy Golden Arbiter of Trade.
Also, and this was the reason I stopped here initially, I wanted to record the fact that Baron Norwood is the best. If you happen to read this, thank you again for the cake. It really cheered me up.

Two things I have thought long on the past few months. I have met, and spoken to many wise people. I have met and spoken to many who thought themselves wise. And I have questioned how wisdom is obtained.
Wisdom is a journey and I have come to realize that age does not denote wisdom. Experience is a tool, a thing that can be used to gain wisdom but how you use that tool is what opens the door to success, not guarantee you will step through it.
It is a funny thing the expectations laid upon one who is rather young, and one who is old. The young are expected to throw themselves into trouble with wild abandon, to lack the forethought to think through situations, to be reckless never thinking beyond the action or the moment, the impatience to want it all now. There are times I find myself personifying all of that and yet...and yet it is not the whole of the tale.
Many things are learned in war, many things that words are incapable of describing properly. In many ways one might be no older than they would have been without those experiences, but in other ways it changes you. I wonder, in what ways did it change me? And how have those changes perhaps continued.
I have found that moving away from direct fighting and more into command has been both fulfilling and...there is the desire to be part of it all still. Sending out your people, worrying about them, putting everything into making sure they return safely and successfully. It is a strange amalgam of emotion that I am still coming to understand. But oh how I wish I could be there beside them.

Since I learned about the effort to get his statue built, I've been working hard towards the effort. And now we are almost there. His bravery inspired me, and I want people to remember him for his bravery.
