The Cycle Continues

Posted by Edain on 02/24/18
I had given so much thought to what I would say when it was time to make this announcement, and now that it is time that I do so, I find that I don't know what to say. There is poetry in welcoming a new life to Arvum even as we prepare for war, but I am not eloquent enough to give words to it.

So I will thank Princess Sophie, Lady Reigna, and the Mercy's of Lagoma for bringing their skill at guiding Princess Consort Caelis thorugh labor and ensuring that both mother and child and healthy and hale and resting comfortable. I will thank my wife, Princess Consort Caelis for being an amazingly strong woman and brining our child into the world. To my family and friends, of whom I have been blessed with more than I can name here, I thank you for all your support while I have been fretting about becoming a father.

And finally to Prince Samuel Valardin, Heir of Sanctum I say, welcome to the world. We have to go and fight for it once again first, but I cannot wait to show you how beautiful this place is.
