I have so many pieces of low quality metal... There is no point selling it, because I would barely get few coins. However, I can not make toys for children out of it. I am worried that they might hurt themselves. Wooden toys are more suitable to kids. Of course, I could make some figurines, but they do not have as much success as I expected.

I hope that Jayus will inspire me soon, because I hate seeing all those piles of low quality metal in the corner of my shop.

Relationship Note on Enzo

Harry's Jewelry and Gifts Shop has admittedly been a favorite of mine. They're affordable and they do excellent custom work; a combination that's certainly hard to pass up. I thought the figurines for the Decathalon were particularly ingenius. But I hadn't truly gotten a chance to meet Master Enzo Siqueiros formally, despite him also being a protege to Duke Niccolo Velenosa and hearing much about the inked, fiery-haired young man.

He was professional, expansively complimentary, and really, quite an unexpected delight to be around. Working together with him for the Aspirations of Alcohol event has been rather fascinating, especially given all that he's capable of. His most recent commission is perfect and I look forward to seeing it on display. I left his shop with a painting for my wall, but little did I know that I'd end up with two soon after. He's a charming surprise, and his devotion to Jayus is rather inspiring in itself. I look forward to collaborating with him in the future.

Relationship Note on Enzo

I have officially began to hoard Master Enzo's paintings and jewelry. As thanks for my consistent patronage, he has gifted me a lovely painting without charge.

I approve.

Relationship Note on Silas

I am sure there are a hundred good things which Silas does for the grand city of Arx, protecting it and doing the things he does with wood in that shop. But I think the thing he does the very best is ensuring that dead things are dead with intent and determined focus. Not enough people understand what an endearing and necessary quality this is. It speaks volumes about being able to finish a job and get it done thoroughly! Or at least, it ensures that the pulverized snake won't slither ever again, which is probably just as important if you were almost bit by it.

Relationship Note on Deva

Whenever I think about going to kill things recently, I can't help but want to have Princess Deva by my side. She's a very-very wonderous shot with that bow and I think between the two of us, we could eradicate an entire flock of birds even if they sneakily crept out of their dark and cavernous, feather-flitting nests to prey upon the innocent. She's ever so lovely. I think, if I really-really had to throw my Prince Brother at someone with all my heart, I could throw him at her.

Relationship Note on Dawn

Lady Dawn is a recent acquaintance, I'm almost ashamed to say. I first corresponded with her when she invited me to a Market Day she was planning, and later when she requested a wardrobe. It ended up being my best piece thus far, and she rewarded me quite handsomely for it.

I got to know her better when we both joined Prince Edain's and Princess Malorie's hunt. She is competitive! And knows how to use a bow, apparently.

She later attended Game Night and befriended Hammar. It was quite the gesture. I have a feeling she may be the ruler a nation can only dream of, but may not necessarily ever get.

Relationship Note on Jessamine

Mistress Jessamine is the current manager of the Trader's Tavern, one of my favorite watering holes. She let me host Game Night, and seems open to holding more such events in the future.

She is a bright, sunny girl with a penchant for lighting up the room. Her generosity is noteworthy.

Relationship Note on Niccolo

I confess Duke Niccolo Velenosa is quickly becoming one of my favorite noblemen. He is dignified without being uptight and easy to provoke, and seems willing to pledge his wealth to good causes. He is not quite what I expected!

Relationship Note on Hammar

A simple but well-meaning fellow, who beat all of us at the first Game Night and took home the purse. Lady Dawn seems to have made quite the impression on him; I can only hope his renewed self-confidence lasts.

Game Night went well! Perhaps even far better than I intended. I got compliments on both the decor and the card game, and I believe even those who didn't partake in the game came away with something. I will have to hold another sometime soon.

I hope this leads to a bump in business for Mistress Jessamine. I sent her a gift for her efforts; her staff was gracious and prompt and small changes in decor were a nice touch.

I participated in a hunt earlier in the day, the one held by Prince Edain and Princess Malorie. Prince Edain was notably the most learned and skilled of the bunch, but I hope I did leave a good impression. House Grayson didn't end up winning the bet, but I at least managed to wound the beast!

Relationship Note on Ida

I'm fairly certain at this point Master Ida Ferron has gained more of my coin than most people ever will. But her weapons are exceptional, so it's a hard thing to pass up. She's fulfilled three separate orders for me since I first met her, after my first purchase, and I have no regrets regarding it. Being able to sit down with her and enjoy her company merely compounded the experience. Honestly, we're a little unlikely for acquaintances, but there's something warm and real about her which draws people in. Besides. Whiskey _and_ a penchant for sharp objects? Yes, please.

Relationship Note on Jessamine

If you captured sunshine and condensed it into the form of a lovely, yet capable, woman, you would essentially have Jessamine. Her bright smiles and overall demeanor brilliantly light up a room. I have to admit that I'm quite curious to see how she handles in her other calling in life and I'll have the privilege of seeing that soon. As the caretaker of Traders Tavern, I imagine that we'll run into each other quite a bit-- and that isn't a bad thing at all.

I decided to message Lady Calista. I had feared with her silence that I must have done something to make her mad. Apparently business has been keeping her busy. Despite this, she intends to get in contact with me and perhaps we will make up for time lost since the last time we were able to settle in for a good improper discussion, and wine tasting.

Let's be honest. Some people wouldn't expect that a member of the Iron Guard (and especially a non-whiskey-drinking one) could hold a Game Night event that wasn't dice simply being thrown while they loitered around cells. But I have to give credit where it's due. Sir Silas, with Mistress Jessamine's aid, did a pretty commendable job hosting this event. It was nicely decorated and exceptionally enjoyable. I'll undoubtedly be back in the future to lose more coin-that-isn't-mine.

Relationship Note on Isolde

Princess Isolde, I cannot say I truly know what she looks like, I have seen more of her body than her face, no true complaints there! Despite this, I consider Isolde a friend. Perhaps it is the mask that makes me want to get to know her better, or the fact she seems to take an interest in helping with the past mistakes I have made. I have gifted her with likely the most unique gift I could think of, a pair of steel dancing shoes. I have tested these shoes, whilst dancing with Isolde. Granted I never stepped on her toes. I look forward to more meetings with the Princess.

Relationship Note on Dawn

I had the privilege of meeting Lady Dawn for the first time during Sir Silas' Game Night, introduced by Duke Niccolo. She's everything that I had heard and more, but surpassingly easy to talk to and perhaps easier to watch. You know, words about her were always rather inspiring, but few can command such a respect simply by being who they are. I look forward to our interactions in the future, as rare as they might be.

Ah, Princess Isolde. She is a refreshing breath of air in a city growing stagnant and foul. I have decided to look into the beginning of our friendship, and offered to dance with her, she wanted to dance with me. I had Ida make her steel dancing shoes a while back, for when this day came, and it came, and the steel dancing shoes slowed up her feet enough that I did not end up stepping on her toes. I did not come to this city to make friends, in fact I do not want friends, but I seem to be finding them, and I consider Isolde to be a friend.

Relationship Note on Gustave

I don't know what it is about Marquis Gustave which draws my attention, aside from his incredibly towering height, of course. Maybe it was the way he called swords little while gripping that exceedingly large weapon in his own hand. Or maybe it was the way he fearlessly dived into the waters at the beach during the Soiree with a spear in hand. Or perhaps it's just the way the seas seem to accept him as one of their own. He speaks of very particular family values, but doesn't tout his rather noticeable lack of extreme vices upon others. Our paths don't cross very often, but every time they do, he has something interesting to share.

Relationship Note on Silas

The man can build furniture. He also did a good job with putting together a game night at Traders Tavern. He was very useful during the hunt as well. As long as the man continues accumulating good marks, I'll continue to watch him. He seems like a useful fellow to to know among the Iron Guard.

Hammar think he Champion now, even if Acacia think he not. Acacia smart, but she not know everything. Hammar now champion to Dawn, and she say he King Champion, Hammar not know how, but Hammar is Champion Hammar, Champion prettiest Lady in City. Hammar crush skulls for Dawn, but not Melty face Grayson.
