The mournful wails of agonizing grief can be heard all the way back to the Oathlands and back for the House Wyrmguard.

Confirmed reports of Lord Damon Wyrmguard Missing. Howver no confirmation on his death or findings of his remains.

The House of Wyrmguard is now on lock down during this time of mourning and searching for their lost kin. A reward for promising information on Lord Damon's Disappearance has been posted by myself.

Relationship Note on Khanne

Some people just fit.

You meet them, and it's comfortable, and it's simple, and there's a natural familiarity like your spirits have known one another longer than you have.

Here's to you, Lady Stray, and the learning, rituals, victories, comraderie through the losses, stories, adventures, misadventures, familial disasters and rivers of whiskey to come.

Relationship Note on Dawn

Today I saw Dawn for the first time since she left for the Night Grove. She is mostly unhurt but for the cut down her brow and cheek, which still pains her if she smiles too wide or laughs too hard.

She smiles and laughs anyways. She is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.

And she loved my gift.

Relationship Note on Aldwin

Aldwin makes for a surprisingly good writing companion that was not offended, despite many slips of the tongue in his presence. How he survived my visit and still maintain that composure will forever be one of the great mysteries of Arx.

PS. He is not as old as he looks.

Relationship Note on Garza

I think I'll be feeling that last lesson for a few days yet, when you spar, you don't hold back do you? But, that's not a bad thing. It's probably a fine attribute for a sellsword to have.

The Commoner's Court went better than I expected and I find myself equal parts pleased and disappointed that there was not at least one fist fight, or food flung, or any kind of roughhousing. I think next time we shall make a new rule: A shot of whiskey for whoever takes the floor to speak, I feel this a good plan and clearly no harm can possibly come from it.

I was also honoured by a request to join the Council of Commoners, which I accepted. So, I guess we will be doing this Commoners Court thing again. Though I think I may need to work on my speech writing skills, the Captain General outshone me in his talk of the Teind and received considerable praise after. Clearly he has missed his true calling as an orator and I'm sure after that, he'll popular for similar talks for many months to come. More people than I expected showed up and most of the houses and many organisations were represented at the talk, though I was a touch disappointed to not see a single Redrain there. There was another face missing from the crowd too, but I imagine the Archscholar is a busy man and hold out some hope that he will attend the next.

This week has gone well, and I have learned much and while I haven't yet worked out.. a few key things, I think I grow closer. And in doing so, hopefully it will make it a bit easier to stay alive that little bit longer. Finding my place in Arx helps, as a scholar, as a smith, as a sellsword and as a lover. I think a few more people see me now than did before.

The fucking elves arrive soon though, and I think my face will be among the many who have yet to see such a thing, and will be eagerly trying to catch a glimpse from the crowd.

Curious. Ever curious.

Relationship Note on Eleyna

Really, spiders are -meant- to wander. Oleander the tarantula never did a thing wrong. Perhaps her grace will let you keep it if only you ensure it doesn't end up in amongst her closet full of aeterna and fireweave.

Relationship Note on Leo

The future Archduke is quick with the sword and fought far better than I would have expected. The man has received my token and my blessing to court her grace, Grand Duchess Esera of House Velenosa.

If he is as proficient a partner to my liege as he is at duelling then I only look forward to serving him as part of the family.

If he's to do anything to harm her, however, I will not fight fair as is so expected of me next time. That is a promise.

'His sea has run dry'. Is this a Thraxian term for infertility? A shame, if so.

Stern, resolute, and quiet. I suspect because he is of the belief that actions speak louder than words.

Relationship Note on Edain

I've known the man for some years now. My house has been sworn to the Valardin as their liege for longer than I've been alive. When my brother died, I became the Marquis of Lyonesse. Prince Edain, High Lord of Valardin, and councilor of the Regency Council still treats me with dignity and respect despite the fact that I passed my title to my younger sister. No longer am I Marquis Lyonesse, now I am simply Sir Rymarr in service to the King's Own's mandate.

Despite these facts, the prince seems not to acknowledge that fact. When I stand by in silence, waiting for attention to be called to me, he reminds me to speak rather than wait to be heard. Something which he does not have to do, but he does. That is worthy of respect.

He and I truly need to catch up some time. It is not often that I have the opportunity to sit and speak with many from home.

Relationship Note on Zhayla

Formerly Abandoned, I suspect. At least judging on her many tattoos. That is no judgement, but only an observation.

She possesses the excitement of youth and the willingness to learn all that she can. Well, save for perhaps horseback riding. I've made it my own personal task to teach her to ride so that she may better serve the house she has given her sword to. It is quite the sword too.

She seems intrigued, perhaps even excited, at the thought of the King's Own. I suspect she may even daydream of becoming one of the Silver Swords, judging by her reactions upon seeing my armor and the series of questions she had to ask about the royal guard.

She possesses a great deal of potential and because of this I will keep a close eye on her. She has informed me that she can read and write, though it is still a work in progress. I've given her invitation to write to me. Gods know that I could use the distraction from staring at the wall or cleaning and polishing my kit.

Relationship Note on Darren

I've said it many times since my arrival in the city, the people of House Redrain are not the barbarians or savages that rumor would have you believe. I've found them to be rustic, yes. Barbaric? No. They are a noble, strong people, with their own ways.

High Lord, Prince, and one of the Regent Council. I've come to recognize the man behind those titles as a wise leader, eager to do what he considers right and sensible, while also being willing to hear out the concerns of those below his station. He seems to exemplify the phrase 'firm, but fair'. That is worthy of respect in and of itself.

Relationship Note on Lark

The recently appointed figurehead of House Grayson. She seems a shrewd and possibly even no nonsense perhaps. This appeals to me as both a knight of the King's Own and a citizen of the Compact.

This of course warrants further investigation to determine the validity of my own thoughts on the High Lord of House Grayson and one of the Regent Council.

I did suggest a tournament, but it was for Gloria, not Gild. Gild may have a tournament if she wishes but I feel she might be rather puzzled by the whole thing.
