Wintersong

(23 Eorgaen 5116, Wehnimer’s Landing) My dearest, Aetheri, I know you cannot receive letters at sea, but I will write and save them for you. There is already so much I will never remember to tell you. My thoughts turn constantly to you. I daydream of your eyes. I hear your voice in the melodies of my dreams. Your softest caress is upon the breeze, and I remember how warm you are next to me. I miss you, Sweetie. I saw a penguin...

How Do You Sleep?

(8 Ivastaen 5116, Ta’Illistim) “Let’s go someplace quiet, there’s been a rather unsettling development out west,” Aetheri led the bardess off to a quieter place. She sighed inwardly. There was always trouble out west. Once at the Abbey, they found a secluded table with a translucent glaes orb suspended from a thin silvery chain emanating soft light, much like a miniature moon over the polished ebonwood table. ...

Lyin’ Eyes

(26 Charlotos 5116, Ta’Illistim) [The writing looks shaky, and there are smears and stains where clear liquid has splashed.] Dear Aetheri, The incessant trouble in that mortal Empire, whatever they call it this year, seems to have yanked me into it. I may need someone to explain it all to me. It involves those awful Blameless who do so many terrible things in the name of the God King. A week ago, they captured a Blade of Ronan, Lord...

Canone Inverso

(30 Loremesta 5116, Ta’Illistim) She heard the warm melody; it was exotic and tantalizing, it drew all of her attention immediately – attention which she willingly gave. The enticing notes moved slowly as they exposed their theme. Before long, she found herself no more the audience, but part of the song. She followed it, echoing every move the lyrical tune took. She learned it as she went along, an offset echo in a higher voice....

Back For More

(22 Lormesta 5116, Ta’Illistim) How did it start? The way most of these kinds of stories start…a friend asked if I wanted to share an adventuring patrol with him. “Is there a cleric in town?” I asked. “Because I think I will need one in there…” “There is some sort of creature problem…” Mister Barreaus told me. We both knew it could be anything, but this was a good deal better than...

The Secret of Giving

(30 Lormesta 5116, Ta’Illistim) Mister Aurach spoke softly as I was preparing to go out on a patrol with Mister Barreaus. “But what is the sense in having a protective majic if one does not use it?” “Do you need natures resistance on your armor?” he whispered to me. I was not really sure. I had a weatherproofing spell around me, was that what he meant? He said armor specifically. So I explained my confusion to...

In the Air Tonight

(2 Eorgean 5115, The Landing) She was making the last stop to shop in the Landing before going home when the first thought came to her with a strange question from a lady she had come to town a couple hours ago for a special purchase. By the time she found where everyone was beneath the well, it was all over. “What color are your eyes?” Mistiq’s thought came to her directly, seemingly out of nowhere to her. She was...

Secret Garden

(1 Eorgean 5115, Ta’Illistim) The ghostly blue glow of the ancient glowbark tree spilled onto the dark ground where a lot of the beautiful, keening sirenflowers were withering and turning black or blood-red, petal by petal, flower by flower. She noticed it first in the change of their song, less than an hour before…. In the heart of the Veythorne Manor’s garden is one of their favorite places, under the ancient glowbark...

The Legend of the Wedding Braids

(9 Jastatos 5115, Ta’Illistim) Her Mother The Queen set a headpiece and a veil upon her head and fastened it into the braids, surveying the result. Once upon a time there was a young Princess. She lived in a tall white tower by the sea with her Father and her Mother, the King and Queen. She was just a little girl, not yet come of age. She wore her hair in braids. Now, she was a Princess, so they were very pretty braids. Every...

Anticipation

(5 Jastatos 5115, Ta’Illistim) The anticipation was ever so sweet. Her mother had said it would be. She stepped off the dais to head back to look at the list of last things that she needed to do for the ceremony. One of the six beautiful sapphires in the sky that made up the Stormlord’s trident caught her eye; it seemed to twinkle at her. Her breathing stopped for a moment as she look up in surprise at the promise that...
