Sleepless in the Hinterlands

Winter is cold for those with no warm memories

Dear Cherkanan,

Please do not be worried about writing to me! I am glad to take the time to read and respond to letters. I will always write back when I am able.

Currently we are far to the north. We must go even further north still. We have made such promises to allies and others. These promises were made in Xerx’ses’ name. Though he sacrificed himself for many we will continue to honor these debts and obligations.

This morning I was faced with a choice in order to help one of my friends in CrIsis. To help him I had to break from the path of Refinement talked about by Millenkosh. I fear that path may be lost to me now. I believe my actions have now set me upon the path of Convergence which Mistress Karath explores through the Guild. This has made me think of you even more than usual. Your letter arriving when it did was a godsend!

I am glad you have written to me. It was very good to hear from you. I do not know if there is a path our futures will take which can bring us to Llorn. Grignak has personally reached out to Duke Vaspasseon and told him something similar. If there is some way we could help in the interim I hope the Gods reveal it before it is too late.

May the grace of the Gods keep you safe and well.

Silent Dream. of Dream Lake. and of CrIsis.

Note: This letter was written in Elven, on parchment paper, in the afternoon of the 28st day of Corg, in the seventy-second year of the Great Wolfen Empire.

  • It is pretty cool to see the art work used. Glad to see that relationship may bear some fruit of the heart.

    • I haven’t had reason to write her in a while so there’s been little reason to use her picture before now.

    • At a MIN it will bear fruit of the loin.

  • Good to see him discuss his inner struggle with others that may help him

  • I love how Dream always connects deeply, even in passing.
