Solariums are one of the best ideas I think I've seen made by city folk. Normally I like nature to be, well, natural, but there is something to be said for those places that try to blend both the city and the natural world. The shrine of Lagoma isn't terrible at this, and the Stone grove was a very very old example of that. I want to make a place like that of my own I think.

Relationship Note on Fortunato

It is always a thing, when you meet with true artists. There is something about their soul that sees the world at an angle just slightly apart from most. The thoughts that stir in his head spin with incredible depth and when he speaks, it is often of faith and requires an answer that challenges me deeply. He comes to his faith in a most interesting direction and I wait eagerly for his next questions. Perhaps I might even manage some of my own.

Relationship Note on Gisele

I had thought her too quiet at first, a reserved woman of an esteemed grandfather. She listens and speaks with a thoughtful touch to her words and she believes truly and deeply in the gods. That might be expected from a direct relation of the Most Holy, but what conversation I've had with her shows she comes to her faith on her own. So while quiet, there is contemplation and sincere curiosity behind those eyes. I am glad to have met her.

Relationship Note on Corinna

I'm relatively certain I could convince this woman that the sky was, in fact, an odd shade of green. It's delightful! I'd never do that, of course - I'm a mercenary, not a liar. ...unless it's funny. Okay, I might actually try, it sounds briefly entertaining.

If given the choice between being under siege and besieging someone, one should always choose the former. Both are fine options for a sellsword, of course, but it comes down to coin, and triple rates against double is hardly a choice at all!

It turns out enemy innards are incredibly difficult to wash out of one's hair. I may never feel clean again.

Rumors abound about banning the production of whiskey inside the city during the siege. Thank the spirits that I planned ahead and stockpiled some Rathlander like I said I was going too. Spirits forbid we don't have anything to drink in celebration once this is all over.

Painting. A sky of stars, no, not stars. Faint threaded legs emerge from the stars, eight for each.

Beneath the stars, Arx in jumble, a crowd of buildings and paths, towers and water-run gorges. The Cathedral is a glimmer of stone and stained glass ringed about by shrines, the bridges and gates exaggerated in size and shade.

Around Arx, woods sloping into ocean, ocean littered with compact, floating towns, at least more town than ship, squat buildings warmed by perilous floating bonfires. Ocean rises into mountain peak, which shades into clouds, clouds that circle about the high edge of Arx and descend back into the woods in a haze.

At the bottom right corner, in small letters, "We are here. We will persist. We will not do your work for you."

Relationship Note on Tikva

Oh, my lady. If ever I would name a child after a person, it would be you.

As it is, you may have to settle for a cat or a fox or something.

Truly, though; you're a -gifted- artist.

Gustaf is adorable, but I wonder if I can make him more of a bastard... I want him to rule over the Malvici estate like a king. Is there such thing as strength training for cats?

I thought waiting a day or so before writing about the events would help clear my head and let me arrange words more clearly to express all that happened. I was wrong. I do not think my mind is yet prepared to thoroughly express the magnitude of that which occurred.

The tapestry ever weaves itself, and with each passing day, it is apparent to me that the pictures once thought so separate are truly interwoven into a grand panorama. I have seen the Spirits work, have spoken with the Spirits themselves.... and I have seen the miracles of the Pantheon as well. This is to me, further proof that Arx united, all working together, is the key.

It fucking rained spiders.....

I took my first client, for Mae's athletic training! Running is really important, everyone. You can get across the city faster, you are more healthy, you can eat more and not get fat, and also, you can run away from scary things. Esoka did great, and didn't even fall off the Sovereign Bridge! I'm proud!

If anyone is reading this and wants a coach, write me!

Are we allowed to advertise in these things?

Relationship Note on Reese

I've heard through the gossips that Princess Reese may very well be getting married soon. This is wonderful news! She is a stalwart defender often seems like everything. No cause is beneath her willingness to serve it and that is what the Compact needs. Even during my time as part of the King's Own, she would regularly visit with me in order to discuss the news of the day and to keep the knights of the Crown informed. To know that, amidst all of the turmoil of the day, that she is still looking to social obligations as an important detail of life and her own potential happiness? Great news indeed.

Further, such news can be found to be inspiring. To know that others are so confident that the siege will eventually break and that life will, someday, return to normal and they are planning accordingly for such? It is an inspirational sign that will grant hope for the future. Absolutely a bold move and one that I believe will ultimately result in uplifting the spirits of many.

I've also heard through the songs and poetry of another that she is referred to as Princess Ribbons. It is so very accurate. If it's not ribbons, then it's something pink. She definitely has a sense of style.

Relationship Note on Vayne

Have you ever met someone that allows you to see inside of yourself in ways that no one else can? The Archlector is skilled at this task and his duties, and I look forward to his continued counsel, for I fear I shall need it in the coming weeks.

To say the past week has been overwhelming is an understatement, but I had known upon the murder of Valkieri that I must be the responsible one yet again, to take up the mantle of service in a much heavier capacity in a time of great need. My shoulders may break from the strain but my heart will continue on, for duty is the will of the Gods, and I will not fail again.

I've began more formally mentoring my family and allies in the ways of war. After numerous lessons from Archduke Niccolo and Lady General Calypso, coupled with nearly a decade of marching with the Knights, I believe I have found something I am quite capable at. I pray to the Gods that I will be able to train these peers as well as I have been.

Relationship Note on Valkieri

So many things I should have said, done, acted upon. So many regrets that are unspoken and shall remain until our day our souls meet again. Know that you were admired and loved by me, for your steadfast heart and unwavering loyalty to our people, even if you were a stubborn, stubborn man that needed a good dunking in the sea every now and again.
