Psh. PSH. Just go ahead and ask me what I think of that, Scholar.
That wasn't serious! Obviously I am disappointed. Very disappointed in her. If I had known... Well, it obviously doesn't matter now, does it?

But regardless, I know my place and strengths. It isn't that. I will remain in the city and at court, seeing to trade and interests.

I will have her.
Her eyes shine like diamonds in the night. She is always so pleased to see me.
Her hair, so dark, so fine.
I want her.
I just don't have the time to train another hound.
Not enough hours in the day.

Relationship Note on Eirene
It was a good discussion. The Princess Natalia had invited us to talk, but was called away. Eirene is more practical than most of the nobility; comes of being a healer, I suppose. Still.

Relationship Note on Dawn
Honest, as I expected her to be.
I don't think I made a very good impression.
Alas, my audience was cut short, but such is the nature of not having anything of importance to offer.

Relationship Note on Valkieri
Shortest fight since I moved back to the city. Wow. The man took my breath away, not once but -twice-.
I do hope he plans on hitting me again. That was fun.

Relationship Note on Victus
Do you know he told me that he earned his name by skills alone? That is a lovely thing to accomplish and work for.
I am sure that the people of Thrax appreciate him. I wish him only the best on the path he has decided to walk for the reasons he knows.

There were no concrete plans made, and I did not expect them. We do not know nearly enough to make those plans yet. But bringing the voices together brought to the fore how varied Arvum is from region to region, what is vital to maneuvering in any given region. It highlighted how important it will be for there to be ready and open dialogue between the houses on needs, obstacles, and intelligence. We are not drawing the potential battlefield, so we must be prepared and ready to answer anything until we know more. We must shore up our defenses. We must lean into one another and present a phalanx to any who would call the Compact enemy.
There were far too many faces and names to remark on each and every contribution, so I will leave it at Lady General Calypso Malvici, and her willingness to tackle the task of gathering so many cooks in one kitchen, and to see us all moving toward a common goal.

Relationship Note on Natalia
She might look like a fucking angel, but all that pretty just hides a right fucking bitch. When you call her out on it, she blinks and says its all a fucking misunderstanding. Ha. No. She's a bitch and she knows it.
Then again, its not like I'm some fucking saint either. As long as she keeps buying me drinks, I'll keep accepting her fucking invitations.

Quite unbecoming Valardin's Voice, of course. But it may be worth it regardless.
In addition, I suspect I shall have nightmares consisting solely of men shitting off the sides of ships now. *sigh*

In a room full of leaders, a room of well qualified and strong men and women, and strong willed - we were able to have an open conversation about the safety of this compact. Suggestions were offered up on what our next steps should be and beyond merely making suggestions, various leaders started making commitments and sending out marching and training orders. I am a proud member of this compact on waking up this morning. I feared that the information about the elves would spread panic and that furthermore information about the Bringers of Silence would send the city in to a frenzy. But it wasn't so. The room ran from quiet confidence in some, to enthusiastic vigor for taking the next steps. I am so proud.
I am very much learning the value of Lord Eos. He is unafraid of voicing necessary opinions and works far more diligently as an emissary for direct communication than I might have imagined before. I am greateful for his council and proud of his work.
And now - we do what we can to learn as much about our enemy as possible and prepare ourselves in the process.

For the place I was, well, conceived, I've never been here very often. Certainly never to stay. So I spent the first few days here feeling very lost! Like my world was a little off-balance, just enough that I wasn't sure of things.
But now, after the Assembly, it seems like a lot of the city is feeling that way, too. In a weird way, that makes me feel less alone.
And if the rumors are right, if war is coming, then I'll do my part. I'll help make weapons to defend the realm! Though I'm sure plenty of the other smiths must be better than me—it's Arx, the capital!—the weapons I make are more than good enough to serve in battle. Even if they aren't alaricite.
And maybe I can find a really good weaponsmith to apprentice to...

I ain sayin we slaughter em all or anythin, but, gettin all the compact tah finally be f'an friendly for a minute would do us all good. Lots of deep holds an valleys an grottos out there. We ain even know our own lands as well as we should. I'm sick ah known the raids are startin again every spring thaw, we need tah do somethin.
Jus wish I knew what tha f'an somethin was.

These... whatevers.... are now on the lips of most of the Compact as a boogeyman come back to life. I haven't seen a gods damned thing to confirm this isn't anything but an elaborate ploy to deceive the Compact, and in all my traveling, I have never, *ever* seen evidence these things are real, let alone still alive.
So, why everyone is jumping to conclusions and believing a fairy tale at the first mentioning of them is beyond me... but at least the Regent and the strategy session earlier are moving in the right direction in preparing for a war.
