Relationship Note on Asha

I met Asha, a champion. I got a chance to spar with her. She doesn't wear armor so I stripped mine off. That perhaps was not the best plan. She is one of the few that I have fought that uses similar tactics to myself. Well Fought Asha! You showed me where I need to tighten up in my defense and that I still need to work on not becoming so fatigued so quickly.

Thank you for the match!

I went with several people to help the tribes and clans that have been hurt by the siege like we were. It is so hard to see all of those people suffering and I know some of them hated me for being a Greenmarcher but that doesn't matter. Right now making sure they have what they need? That is the important thing. I think at least I was able to help, I plan to ride out again, to help in any way I can.

I have been asked by my Count Thesarin and Lady Tikva to take the position of Sword of the Twainfort, as Riven establishes itself in Arx. The twin scimitars have been wielded by many peerless warriors in the House's history, and it is my privilege to take them up in defense of Riven and the Compact. By Gloria, I shall carry them with honor and righteousness. By Limerance, my heart shall remain true to the Twainfort and its peoples in all my dealings. This I vow.

If there is anyone with a sudden abundance of seasilk in their lives, please, do consider me. I find myself suddenly envious of the gentleman that has found all of life's comfort in a single pair of seasilk trousers.

Clearly, he is a man that enjoys the finer things.

You don't know true comfort until you get yourself seasilk breeches. This is it. My life is now complete.

I cannot allow my disappointment in a few people to outshine recent events.
I will write of happier news.

The fundraiser was a resounding success and I believe my next few days will be spent getting my fingers stained with ink as many many thank you letters must be written out! We shall have a Menagerie like no other in the Compact, thanks to everyone who has donated and continues to do so. The timeline for the construction is yet to be determined but it will be as swiftly as we can possibly spare good hard working men and women away from other humanitarian causes, such of one, that I've volunteered for -- goodness help me! Larissa's organization of the Menagerie fundraiser entertainment has prompted me to support her own cause. Wish me luck!

Together, the people of Arx will rebuild.

Today I took my horse for a walk again. I feel like Semiramis and I are really bonding. I did notice a few odd looks as I walked about with my horse. We must make a fine pair. She's such a beauty with her black coat and mane, I do admit some jealousy, her locks might be glossier than mine. Soon I hope to really stretch our legs and take a long ride out of the city, but in the meantime, I think walking Semiramis is a perfect way to bond.

May your hopes find safe harbors.

I've started an effort to collect plants from around the Gray forest, and elsewhere, to be presented to the king. I know from others that he is still in a very difficult state, and that gifts might not mean much to him... But these are tokens of his realm, which might, I hope, at least bring him pleasant memories. I will be on a trip soon to collect samples myself. I only hope we find someone with the talent for arranging everything collected artistically.

Relationship Note on Vanora

Ask and ye shall receive, dear cousin! I would be positively thrilled to go shopping with you. In fact, now that I picture your palette, I recall glorious res hair and gorgeous green eyes. I am already envisioning just the look that would be perfect for you. I shall get my seamstress set to work immediately on my creative vision. You will be stunning! That is, of course, if you trust me, cousin?

The Sea Witch is an interesting fellow I enjoy working with, I will learn much from listening to his words. He can be a bit creepy but I suppose that is to be expected.

Relationship Note on Audric

This Mercenary-General is as greedy, merciless, and loud-mouthed as most of his breed. I know little of him otherwise, having only seen him at the Battle for Seawatch Gate.

But he does have an incredible hat.

No, I'm not taking whatever herbs or substances that Lady Arianna may or may not have consumed.

The reason the last journal was gibberish was due to wager currently going. It's expanded of late. I didn't know so many member of this fair city had an interest in ciphers.

This one is a little more complex. I hope.

I am now a Golden Eagle sponsor for the Menagerie. Apparently this means I get to design my own room. I am definitely considering "the Great Northern Ice Bear" for a theme. I know one thing for certain - it will definitely be the most impressive room in the entire Menagerie.

Relationship Note on Aiden

Prince Aiden hosted a fantastic event. And I won a new kit in a bidding war. Time to invest in some polish and see about what kind of history that the fighter and the Princess who wore it has.

I've had a hat with feathers for longer than most of you have been in the city. I know, I know, it's hard not to impersonate greatness, but at least accredit it properly.

Amend my previous offer, Grandmaster: A hat with feathers. As Lady Pravus had deemed feathers to be en mode, and a gentleman of such high standing within the Knights of Solace should always be in fashion.

Feathers. Yes, the next coming trend is definitely going to be feathers. There was a woman of Redrain on the ship I took to Arx, and she had this amazing headdress of feathers and chainmail. I thought it was appallingly fabulous and I asked her what she'd want for it. She was flattered I'd noticed, of course she was, poor dear, living in such frigid and hostile climes, and yet, see? Even in the Northlands amidst the snow and bears, there goes a daring, fashionable soul. It quite cheered me up to see it, missing my Sebastian as I am. I hate being away from my brother. As awful as he might be from time to time, there is a steadfast reliability in his sheer perversity. I'm sure he'll love me saying this here, but it is truth. He was supposed to accompany me to Arx and yet at the last minute he changed his mind. Well. I, for one, am ready to be embraced by the arms of civilization. No more backwater and tidal villages where not a single soul understands the difference between cendal and samite!

So, in honor of that nameless lady with the chainmail and feathers, I declare, upon my arrival, the next must-have accessory shall be feathers.
