Well then.

I'm sitting on this idea of taking on the Guildmaster post for the Crafters Guild, and while I sort of ... volunteered for it for the sake of my peers, I'm a little daunted by how much work needs to be done.

I need quite desperately to speak to my fellow crafters. I'm not about to take a position without their apathy at the very least, and the majority of their support at best. I know how most of us work; we are devoted to making and tend to desire little else outside of practicing our trade except to create in peace. Most of us.

Gods help me. It's going to be like herding cats.

Relationship Note on Barric

The Sword of Bastion is totally the kind of man most women swoon over. He's tall, dark, handsome... I may have written about him before and said similarly if not the -same- exact thing but that only proves I truly mean it. But what do I know about this man besides his striking good looks? I know he's a charming and chivalrous, he's loyal to his family and a romantic at heart. There isn't anything about him that turns me away and I hope that only means I'll be getting closer and closer as time goes on.

Relationship Note on Nadia

A pleasant enough meeting. The lady seems honest and forthright, though perhaps optimistic.

Relationship Note on Talen

Talen and I went hunting together. It was way past due. It's been a while since we've had a chance to talk. I was reminded of how well he and I work together, in the way that we took down that boar. I should strive to spar more often with him, perhaps even more hunts. It felt right to reconnect with the man that is like a son to me, again.

Relationship Note on Zotikos

Amicable, at least.

Relationship Note on Edain

Well, that went better than I expected. Not even a small lecture on noble responsibility. Instead, he refers me to a weaponsmith for my men and just wants to check that I'm not an imposter. A reasonable suspicion, given my disappearance. He did prod me to try and make amends with father though. I'm still not sure if I even want to bark up that tree, let alone go near it.

Relationship Note on Larissa

You can definitely te'' she's used to the court games. One of the few who makes me care about them.

Relationship Note on Rook

A potential client representing the house of Whisper. Hopefully the Radiant will agree to a meeting soon.

Relationship Note on Lydia

Probably just another gossip queen. I have no time for court gossip games outside of court. Maybe she has hidden depths?

Relationship Note on Hammar

If anyone needs to get into our martial ring, it's this one. Simple, but we might be able to learn from one another.

Relationship Note on Lou

Princess adventurer. When I first considered taking her own as a student, I have no idea I was a potential recruit. I'm torn between taking time off on occasion to help her with my knowledge, or letting her figure out that her interest will get her killed one day. She might make it worth my while with clients alone.

Relationship Note on Abbas

Prince Abbas Thrax, the Lion of the Dark Waters. He came into my shop seeking a very specific commission. While I never sew and tell, it was an interesting meeting, and one I shall have to repeat once the clothing is done. Perhaps I misjudged him when we first started speaking, but I did have respect for the man when he left.

Relationship Note on Valkieri

It is impossible not to see the things that Valkieri and his brother share; those habits and gestures and minutiae that make them both Rubino. It is hard to sit across a table from him and see it, while the pain in my heart digs a bit deeper with every sigh.

Much easier when he has fallen into a Valkieri mood, when he sneers at me and makes that perfect little scowl that can hide nothing of his anger. It is refreshingly different than Zaccheri's charm.

Relationship Note on Ida

A weaponsmith patroned by the High Lord. Possible supplier once we can discuss details. Meanwhile, she'll help me to find someone to retain for for the Blades by contract, and not just commission.

Relationship Note on Signe

Signe is here! Signe is here!

My cousin arrived this week and I am ecstatic! I've missed my family so much and Signe has always been one of my favorite cousins! Exciting things always seem to happen when she's around. Already, the house seems to have more life in it. Couldn't be happier!

Relationship Note on Donrai

Any of the most pious knows that the gods work in mysterious ways, and often take the best of us at a very young age. His grace Prince Donrai Thrax is living proof that only the good die young and the opposite is often equally true, much to our continued misfortune. While it is without a doubt one of the most difficult callings of a priest to give comfort to a parent, we can all take great solace in that absolutely no one will need to be comforted when Prince Donrai goes to his eternal reward, or lack thereof.

Relationship Note on Nadia

"Artful," she calls me. "Refreshing."


Her company was not...entirely unpleasant. It is intoxicating to let oneself think that others might simply be exactly as they appear. Like any intoxication, it is a drastically dangerous thought to hold.

Relationship Note on Fawkuhl

If one wishes to claim the crown, I should hope they don't obscure their motives behind a simpering smile and a questionable offer of aid. His Majesty King Alaric Grayson IV was never much use to us whole, and the Dominus offers to heal him. But why? A strong man with a pillow could set the realm to right in a few minutes, and we'd all be better for it. Does anyone believe that I would wish my grandchildren to keep my infirm, still-breathing corpse around if I was in precisely the same condition as his majesty? Nonsense, give the gift of mercy and go about your business.

Relationship Note on Sylvie

Ah, my dear sister-in-law. Let me count the ways I trust nothing that comes from your scheming, beautiful lips. Life would be so much simpler, wouldn't it, if I knew we were truly playing the same side of the Game.

Life would be simpler if I knew many more things for certain than I do.

I have a penchant to draw from time to time. Today is one of those days. To demonstrate what exactly my room looks like at this moment in time, I will immortalise it forever. Please stash it with my last journal entry, Master Scholar.

You see: a handsome royal purple silk doublet with billowing sleeves secured by black and gold ties, a loosely fit set of rich heliotrope silk breeches secured by jaunty leather belts, a stylishly slanted obsidian kid leather hat complete with a gilded feather, a darkest inky duo of leather gloves wrapped possessively about the wrists, a soft doeskin pair of stark black knee-high boots with criss-crossed golden laces, a sash of cream coloured linen embroidered in shades of red and orange, book, an ebon wood chest inlaid with deadly nightshade in silver and garnet, a gleaming, polished steel helmet with a visor reminiscent of a mirrormask, a sharp, taloned pair of steel gauntlets constructed by overlapping plates, a shining, knee-high set of steel sollerets that taper into hooked points, charcoal simple shoes made of tightly woven layered cloth, charcoal linen pants with looser legs and cinched tight and tucked into boots, close fitting blood red tunic with the sleeves raggedly torn off, charcoal linen pants with looser legs and cinched tight at the ankle, House Velenosa Mirror Blade, a wicked, sanguine schiavona-style rubicund broadsword with an elaborately wrought basket-hilt, a villainous, blood-crimson rubicund stiletto with a warped and twisted leather-bound handgrip, a long, taut duo of shadowy leather sleeves sporting tarnished metal elbow-guards, a close-cut pair of stark, padded leather pants complete with shineless knee plates, a flared, knee-high set of dark leather boots with broad, dull steel toe caps, a snug set of rich, obsidian leather gloves punctuated with sharp knuckle dusters, a somber, dim leather cloak that shrouds the figure and posesses a deep hood, a martial, inky black leather vest belted by wide straps and gunmetal buckles, a narrow, high quality steel longsword with a grooved tang and silver fox pommel, a complicated, cube-shaped puzzle box with interlocking parts, a shadowed metal ring with a center cut ruby, A purple ribbon with a fox sigil stitched into the bottom, a chain of amethyst and black gold, a grungy, patchwork cloak of fabric scraps

Please note that the scholars may take some time preparing your journal for others to read.
