((SCHOLARS NOTE- WILL OF THE DECEASED STIPULATED RELEASE OF HER BLACK REFLECTIONS))

All the debtors have been accounted for. Any remaining debt has been settled. I now have fulfilled my duties, and can now begin preprations for my return. In a little less than two weeks' time, I will have returned to the capital. Until then, I'll keep busy and ensure all is settled in Stonedeep. I don't want to leave the capital for such lengths of time again, not with the troubles brewing in Arx.

With great pleasure I wish to herald that today I have arrived to Arx, eight days and seven nights on the road. Duke Leo had called for me, and of course I had to attend the calling of my liege as soon as I could, and he has introduced me as one of the voices of the Compact.

Relationship Note on Zaina

She has been with my sister since as long as I can remember. Never was there a more loyal servant.

I have not seen much of my sister in many years. Nor her handmaiden.

Seeing her stirs memories of my parents. There have been times when I have had to prove my loyalty with great ferocity. And I've ever been Thraxian before all. Loyal to Hisself.

I feel myself being drawn to Eurus. My last journey was cut short. But it seems there is more -- as always.

I have always been one to be drawn to the tides of emotions. They are best bottled and reserved to be let out with rage upon the vulnerable nape of one's enemies; usually with an axe.

It is good to have Zaina back.

Relationship Note on Myrinda

I'm getting a little worn out about people grumbling about my near-mother.

Right, she's about as cuddly as a porcupine. Sometimes. She's also incredibly intelligent and worth her weight in salt or gold or whatever it is you value the most.

And if your skin is thick enough, she's one of the most talented clothiers in the Crafters Guild.

If you cannot handle the person she presents herself, clear as day, to be without remorse or apology, that's definitely -your- problem, not hers or mine. I can reassure you; she probably couldn't care less.

I'm not going to micro-manage any of my guildmembers; their trade and space is their domain. I am here to help them build their business, support them in anyway I can, and protect them as often as I am able. In that regard, I do not treat Myrinda any different than I do anyone else in my Guild.

Everything else, is family. And none of your business.

Wyrmguards Invade Arx!

My beautiful little sister has arrived.

We're all here now. To say that I am pleased would be the understatement of the century.

Relationship Note on Rymarr

Sir Rymarr Lyonesse, First Captain of the Sovereign's Own Royal Guard.

I met with him briefly after the first meeting of the Low Council, where I suspect I lingered too long than was seemly. Thus, I decided to invite him for dinner. It took some time for our schedules to align, but all in all I was pleased for the occasion.

Sir Rymarr is, if nothing else, exactly what a knight should aspire to be. Confuse that not with being a character from a story book, however. The man is, as are we all (or so we dearly hope), human. He possesses dreams and foibles alike. Yet he has chosen his path, knows it for what it is, and walks it bravely. How can I say this so confidently, you wonder? Because I understand it.

But oh! Those blue eyes, so~oo dreamy.

(Well, I had to, didn't I?)

There is always knowledge to be sought after and found. I find myself more eager for it than I used to be as I come to terms with the fact that I can't always be everywhere with my sword in hand.

Part of being prepared is learning, and it means I have to play the games, and do the work.

I think I might be ready.

    The stories told about me are fascinating to me. Yet so few actually use my own words. Those that prefer to write their own narrative instead of interacting with me can choose ignorance if they wish, or pleasant conversation if that would like clarity. I do not turn away honest inquiry. I shall simply assume they are too afraid of their own Reflections to keep from being blinded.

Intending to do a large-scale martial event some time after the shelter event. There's quite a few people spending their hours in training centers as of late.

Possible ideas include:
duels
wrestling
aquathlon?
furious dancing competition?

The downside to having this idea is it's uncouth for me to participate in them.

[ From the restful desk of B. Mercier, Steward: ]

* Seek funding for the Salon. With rumors of approaching threats, this is going to be more challenging than I first imagined.

* Practice. Seek armor; light - flexible. Start to hone those skills that Silas taught me so that if I ever need to use them - I am prepared. (More the practice, less the fear.)

* Perhaps greater introspection is needed, reflecting upon the dark. Learning to be less afraid of the unknown. Embrace it and make it useful to me.

It's been an incredibly eye-opening few days. Juliet... she's displayed immense talent in an area I had no idea so was involved. It was more than surprising, and what I was told has left me with, to say the least, a great deal to think about.
     I've decided on a new sword and a new blade, after my defeat last week. My wound has mostly healed, thankfully - from the amount of my blood spattered along the Southport training ring I'd thought it was much worse. I'm looking forward to a rematch with Lord Sigurd, once my new equipment is secured. A high-quality suit of steel armor, and a rubicund sword should make a bit of a difference in my survival rate.

In the last few days I have heard praise for the dark elves. Someone go as far as to say they love them. I have also heard advice that we forgive the Shavs and invite them into the compact.

What is happening? Who is spreading this madness?

Surely, forgiveness and healing have their place. Holding onto anger and grudges is toxic. But to forgive those that are not asking for it? To trust those that offer no reason to? To invite into our homes those who actively, in this present moment, kidnap us, murder us, sacrifice us, and laugh about it?

I pray to Vellichor that we might all remember what has happened to us. To The Sentinel, that we might understand the importance of justice. To Lagoma, that should our enemies ever truly wish to repent and attempt to earn our trust anew we may recognize it.

Lord Cassius Nightgold, KoS

Gods be praised for this woman. Lagoma be praised! She is blessed with the power to ward off hangovers, and after a night of over indulgence, I find myself with a slight headache and nothing more.

Note to self: Get that other set of leathers as soon as possible. Dresses are nice but everyone has one, and it seems they bring little in the way of street credit.

** This entry is not text, but rather, a drawing **


This simple-seeming greyscale charcoal sketch is actually layered with detail and nuance, once you get beyond the first level. A bar scene, it shows shadowy figures all around, with only a few given any attention. Swirling about them all is a mist that seems to flow and thicken around people of import while thinning near people who are less so influential.

At the center of this web of flowing pulse, is Audric. The attention of many seems to be on him, and the mist swirls darkly around him. Another so touched is Princess Serafine, as many pay her heed and attention. Others, such as Ferrando and Eithne show lighter levels of connection, but their images are clear enough for picking out of the sketch without problem. Julea and Jeremiah are also present, as are Cedarav and Leta, to varying degrees of detail.

Relationship Note on Jeremiah

It's getting to be I can't turn around without running into a Prodigal with an accent I recognize, at least enough to greet and curse fluently.

I love it. Makes me feel a little more grounded to hear a voice I could have heard elsewhere in less complicated times.
