A guide to Lycene Masks:

* Volto: A full mask that obscures the wearer's face from view, allowing anonymity. Eating and drinking is not possible unless the mask is removed. These masks are also typically a hard substance; such as clay or ceramic, and either plain or painted intricately and decorated.

* Columbina: A half mask that is utterly decorative. Can be made of clay or ceramic, but is often times a cloth or leather mask that is then decorated with feathers, fur, jewels, etc. Being a half mask more of the wearer's face is visible and it allows for eating and drinking, but not much anonymity.

* Bauta: A full mask with a square, pointed chin that curves away from the face to allow for eating and drinking. Often worn with a hat and a dashing cloak!

* Medico della Peste: A full or half mask with a long pointed nose. Can allow for eating and drinking. People once believed that it could protect you from disease.

The reference shelf in the Writ and Binding is absolutely open to all to use for their studies. However, if you add your own volume to this resource, please speak with me so I can make sure the book is properly attributed and categorized.

Even if you do not wish this information made public, I would very much like it for my own records.

That said, the 'THE CURSE OF CALAZZO' is thus far entertaining, and I look forward to the next installment.

Relationship Note on Aiden

I'm of the opinion that older brothers should look out for their young siblings, and yet... Aiden has been coming to find me and remind me to come back inside for dinner since the first time I picked up the sword. My little brother has such a heart in him-- I swear to the gods, if anyone hurts him I shall make that person wish they were never born.

Relationship Note on Barric

Haven't had such a close bout in a -long- time.

He's definitely learned quite a bit since the last time we've clashed blades. Which is great - we need it.

The thrill I get out of this job is ridiculous. People aren't supposed to -like- doing paperwork and chasing down loose ends till all hours of the night.

I only hope that I am effective as well.

Relationship Note on Ann

I met this Princess at the Shrine of Vellichor. She is kind and also with the Scholars. I think we should get along well enough.

Just in case anyone else is inspired by Magpie's creative genius:

We want to keep the Bringers as FAR AWAY from the FUCKING PIT as possible.

Please do not try to put Bringer dust in the Pit.

I'm sure someone already thought of this, but I was sitting outside the graveyard enjoying a nice bit of stale bread and a free bowl of soup from the clinic (I'll return the bowl later) and I got to thinking about the Pit. If a Bringer is stabbed, they seem to turn into dust or something, right? Poof. It's really creepy. But what happens to a Bringer that falls into the Pit? What if we set up a lure... A Bringer-Lure, if you will... and turned the Pit into a Pit TRAP?

We could lay some fake ground over it, lure them on and wheeeeee, down they go! Maybe throw some shav on top to make sure they're good and buried?

How does one lure a Bringer though? Maybe find a princess and put her up on a stick all tied up and calling for help?

Might work.

I am hearing advertisements that there are free swords out there for people that are commoners. I am, in fact, a commoner. Who knew?!.. (Don't answer that.) I also don't have a sword (cough cough *Hana* cough). So. My quandry is this... do I go see Hana about a free sword? Do you think the sword she's making for me will end up being free? (I'm guessing not.) What do I do?!

Tomorrow, I shall seek out a weapon so that I too can look like one tough Bringer-slaying bad-ass.

(Also, Hana, if you're reading this I totally <3 you and please don't cancel my order because I still very much want my dagger/cutlass super combo)

Document the first:

1 twisted ankle
2 books
3 fine people to greet me upon my return to Redrain
4 shots of whisky
5 days to recover

No doubt, I will make use of them.

(Notation: Bring own pen when angry journaling) It's -laughably- terrible. At least have some actual sense of style. That may be the worse crime.

Weak. Cowardly. Traitorous. Shitty composition and story.

The subject, laughable, the work ridiculous, and the attempt to divide while under seige, with nightmares at our door? I hope the gods judge you harshly, without mercy, you utter, disgusting piece of filth. How dare you sow discord now.

Shavs came out of the water. They're not human anymore.

What have they given themselves to?

Dear Me,

Today, I have decided to be especially pretty.

I need to believe he lost something, too, and it's making his heart hurt so it's difficult to breathe.

Logic dictates, if I truly cared for him, I would wish him nothing but joy.

Perhaps that comes in time.

For now, I am a terrible person.

Relationship Note on Malena

My sister has been around, and said she is worried about me, after I had been hurt during the hunt for Bringers. However, she does understand that it is my duty, although she wants me to be up to my best before I become involved more. I've decided I will help with Scholarly investigations, and some Mercantile needs, for the time being. She has been focused on healing others as a Physician. I am happy for her, and that she is serving well the Compact and Velenosa. It's a difficult time to have family and siblings though, or any other people that are close. War does not make it easy at all.
