Almost took first place in the Tournament of Roses joust! I should never have given Sir Tarrant Moore my permission to smack the Voice of House Laurent.

In all honesty though it was loads of fun and I enjoyed myself immensely. I am happy to see one of our vassals making a name for himself, even if it's going to take a lot of mead to make me stop feeling like I was run over by a horse.

While I did manage to place for the finals in the Jousting Tournament, I'm afraid that my focus on being on my feet came back to haunt me - I beat my opponent in the first bracket, and then was promptly unhorsed.

Thankfully, I was unhorsed by Sir Tristran Crucible, who went on to win the whole thing, so I can't feel -too- bad about losing.


I saw a lot of impressive bouts today. I am sure Gloria smiled on us all, and Limerance found joy in the many bonds of favour exchanged.

Despite the lack of prowess I possess in horsemanship and especially jousting, I felt the need to represent the Fidante house in the Tournament of Roses. I took one of the fine Fidante mares, paid a carpenter to paint some lances in Fidante colors and entered. I managed to stay horsed, but I still lost after breaking three lances against a man who looked as if his life were spent around horses. In all, I did no better or worse than... say Prince Talen.

I have decided to get a second tattoo. It will be on the opposite side of my first one. I doubt many, if anyone, will see it. I don't exactly create desire in people.

Welcome Prince Donato of House Velenosa. You are so very, very welcome.

I hope your life is full of happiness and that you never feel sorrow or pain. I hope you are kissed by luck and embraced by love for all your days.

I hope you have a quick mind and a brilliant wit. I hope you always have the respect you deserve. I hope your dreams are beautiful and even if adversity finds you that you are able to rise above and overcome with style and grace.

I hope you are well loved and treated kindly, and that you treat others with generous kindness, but not so much you are taken advantage of.

I hope whatever mark you will make on this world will be one that you will be proud of.

I hope you will always know how much you are wanted and loved.

Please be happy little prince.

So, tournament of roses. Kinda a weird name for a grand tournament made to beat the piss out of each other, but if beating the piss is what I'm gonna do, I'm not much for complaining. The leathers are tanned and my axes are polished. Plural that is, I haven't decided which one I wanna use yet.

Anything to get my mind off of all of these fucking ridiculous talking bugs and animal bullshit that's been ringing through the masses. Petrichor has a sick and twisted sense of humor, that much I'm sure of. Or maybe half the damn city is just hallucinating, frankly that would be more believable at this point.

Isles Canines counts on a wardroom of influential members of the compact. They see the vision of this company. It currently also counts with Prince Aiden, its first officer. Whom's skill has turned my beasts into apex predators. Without him, this would not have been possible. With things coming to a lull, I intend to expand our business and provide a wage to my officers, and a return of investment for my wardroom. With that wage, I would like to recruit a quartermaster and a captain for our vessels. The quartermaster to help us expand in the market and the captain to command our ships.

Relationship Note on Fortunato

Fort threw a great party to celebrate Mae and I getting married. It was a blast. I got outrageously drunk, everyone looked amazing, and I didn't get nearly enough time to say hello to all the guests. I don't think the Grayhope Manor has ever had so many crammed into a room...

Many thanks to Fortunato! It was a fantastic time.

If anyone has an extra copy of the song Princess Serafine translated, I'd love to have it.

My deepest congratulations to Count and Countessa Navegant on a fine wedding and a great reception, which I had to miss. But I heard good things.

Prince Donato of House Velenosa, first-born to myself and Princess Eleyna Velenosa, has finally vacated the rent-free premises. Welcome to the world.

His mother recovers well. The fingers on my hand may not.

Jousting in a few days is potentially no longer an option if the pulverised bones do not heal.

These past few days have been interesting. I don't know what I am doing. Just when I figure it out I realize that I don't. For all my talk of loving the simple things, I don't make it simple upon myself now do I?

Any way enough of that.

My lessons with Esoka have been going well. She is a dedicated woman to her cause. I wonder if she ever lets her hair down.

I rather enjoyed my conversation with Countess Mia Riven. I have lots to learn, but she was a patient tutor and hopefully I will be able to pick her brain some more if her time allows it.

Learning the sword is coming along.

The year has turned from 1006 to 1007. I tend not to think much of the passage of calendar dates. I mark years more at the melting of winter into spring, or at the turn of hunting seasons. But the date means it has been a full year since I came to Arx. It did not seem as if it had been that long, until I looked at the calendar.

Duty for the Rivens and the battle against the dark forces of the Silent Army brought me here. Duty has kept me here as well. That I hold to my House, and to the struggle against the shadowy forces that move in the world. And yet, I have a life here for myself now, too. Heron Hall has come to feel familiar. I've made good friends. And come to love one who is VERY much a city man.

I am happy enough with where I find myself as 1007 turns, in the balance of things.

I am completely tickled to hear my song scandalized a masquerade.


Er. I mean. My poorly translated song. From Nox'alfar, and Aislin would tell you I'm terrible at it. So. I'm sure it's not the best example of Nox'Alfar literature.



But I'm told it's not far off.

Relationship Note on Kael

The Keaton family are such wonderful hosts, though I'm beginning to suspect that they've some nefarious plan to fatten all their guests up with all the venison stews, and game hens, and little round potatoes.... And the mulled mead....

It doesn't matter where I've come from, Count Kael and Countess Reigna Keaton never fail to entice me into nibbling on something new with every visit.
