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...

I Believe I Can Fly

(26 Olaesta 5115: Ta’Illistim) The dream was a gift, a gift with her soft new lullabye playing in the background. More than a gift, it was a promise to the bardess. She followed the azure butterfly into a swirling host of colorful butterflies all around her. She raised her arms to reach upwards with them in wonder. They swept under her arms and lifted her high, and somehow, she was soaring into the star-filled night sky. She heard her...

Years of music practice usually helped her in a crisis, so as her...

And while twilight’s first touch of dark was a sacred time for the Lord of Dreams, sometimes a thing required midnight. The shrine was empty except for her and the flame. Here she waited...

The Shrine, The Sign

(13 Lormesta 5115: The Landing) Silvergate Inn West Ring Road Wehnimer’s Landing Dear Father, The most remarkable thing happened to me at the Shrine of Dreams. As I prayed and dipped my hand into the font of dreams, I was overtaken with a wonderful vision … The world around me grew dark and unfocused.  A butterfly appeared just ahead of me, its pink wings gracefully fanned the air.  Soon the beautiful creature exploded in a...

Dreams

(1 Lormesta 5115: On the Shore of Dreams) I put my weapon and shield away. As I did so, it seemed I put all the cares of the world away with them. Stepping through the waterfall, my breath was stolen. Music surrounded me. No lurid crimson streaked the star-strewn sky in the protection of the Shore of Dreams. Moonlight illuminated a graceful arch. Here, the dark of night was warm and welcome; it was my soulmate. The arch drew me in,...
