Sometimes your scars are the record of the mistakes others have made for which you paid.

Even if they're minor, even if they're almost invisible, those are the scars that you never forget.

Especially if the person whose mistake causes you pain never acknowledges it.

Relationship Note on Faruq

When I found myself in a rather crowded night at the Ebb and Flow, I was delighted by the company I found in Lord Faruq Seraceni. Speaking with him on his heritage and Eurusi background got Fatima and I talking about tutoring in the language. Truly I know so few speakers of the language, it should be nice to have another person to keep in practice with!

Of course we did all enjoy the company of Lady Monique and Lady Carita, I shouldn't want to keep them out as well, let us hope that all of our paths cross again in the future.

Relationship Note on Felicia

I could not be happier about Dame Felicia's promotion to the officer corps of the King's Own. She has acquitted herself well in recent expeditions, and has richly earned the rank of Knight Lieutenant.

Welcome, Knight Lieutenant Felicia. There is a good deal of paperwork to be done. But I am sure you will strike it down as well as you do the enemies of the Compact.

My scars are sometimes mistakes, sometimes badges of honor. It's validation that I am still here. I survived. I was damaged but not broken.

Relationship Note on Ryhalt

Only to have an endless supply of Westrock Coffee in Stormwall, my Lord.

I'm starting a school and helping Lord Kaldur set up a trade route - coffee will be in great demand, you know.

Relationship Note on Fatima

** Written quickly as if penned in a hurry. A few errant drops here and there but the handwriting is still... too... loopy **

I quite enjoyed our meeting as well Princess. It was I can say the most interesting day I have had since my coming to this city. I am glad to learn more of my Eurusi history and heritage if such is there, and as for the Canines... it is something I already do. I will of course help as I can.

As for Princess Denica, Lady Carita, and Lady Monique... I think we /both/ owe all three. Just to be safe and make sure nobody is left out.

Relationship Note on Khanne

Vala Khanne is so wise. Sometimes it's just overwhelming how little of this world we actually know. I have so much to learn from her about snacks, and what the best snacks are, and where the best dispensaries are... from which to acquire those snacks.

Dear journal, storms rolled through two nights ago and put the wind and lash to my beloved Damsel's Heart. I know that she's no longer war worthy, but she's still got the hold capacity to do a decent trade and keep the crew in relative comfort. That I convinced a blacksmith to run tin ducting through the cabin alone makes her unique of any ship I've been on.

We're working night and day to save her. There may yet be enough pitch.

Relationship Note on Arik

I recommend you save your Sister, not only for being your Sister. It's just that I am fairly certain she would find a way to haunt you for an eternity if you did not. Intimate moment with your loved one? No. Ghost-Khanne to make you rue the day. Is this a risk you'd be willing to take?

Know that one thousand and nine years have passed since the Reckoning. Today is the twentieth day of the fifth month. I am writing from the city of Arx in The Bakery in the Ward of the Compact. I am Candace Corvo, proprietor of The Bakery, and this is my white journal.

It seems so much time has passed in such a short while. With strawberries coming into their fullness, there's a great deal to be done. The shortcakes sold out promptly, and I've not been able to find sugar loaves of sufficient purity to make confections. They must be extraordinarily small and white loaves in order to be powdered finely enough to give the cake its texture. Perhaps in the future.

Leon and I have continued to offer breakfast rolls, and the relationship has been rewarding. Not only do our products compliment each other well, the sellswords and mercies have been well fed and the traveling merchants pleased.

The tournament for the Champions is at a close. I somehow managed to win against Sir Jeffeth Bayweather in the opening exchange. I managed to surprise him, perhaps my greatest strength as a fighter. I surprised myself too as I never expected that to work.

I've donated the reward from the tournament to the Knights of Solace. Perhaps Sir Jeffeth will appreciate the gesture, but it isn't for his sake. I do not like what had to be done at the Tragedy nor the outcome. It is for my own conscience to be given some rest.

Relationship Note on Fredrik

Maybe that's the explanation for some scars. I cannot speak to each and every scar on each and every person.

But for me, my own are a record of the mistakes I have made in my life, and a stern warning to never repeat them.

I have a lot of scars.

One Throne remains to be won for The Gala, that of Lady Orelia (Prince Weohstan Redrain) and only 12 days until the event itself. I find myself more excited with every passing day for this vision to be realized. It is the result of the hard work and creativity of many, and I hope all the city turns out to enjoy the fruits of their labor.

No, there is no dress code.
No, I won't be selling raffle tickets after the event officially starts.
No, I'm not actually going naked.
Yes, I did forget, in all the party planning, to design myself an outfit.

But then, I am my own Legend.

Relationship Note on Faruq

The Seraceni Sword and a corsair. We struck up a conversation because I thought his name sounded Eurusi, and it seems his family may have some heritage of that sort. So Denica and I may be tutoring him, and I may be encouraging him to sail with the Canines. I do... very much hope it goes well.

Calamity strikes. I return to find that some of the old paperwork was thrown out, as requested - and alongside it, my list of comissions. Now I'll have to hire a crier to call out for those who wished to discuss my work to write me again.

It's a dreadful embarrassment.

I'll tell you what, it's great when you finally get some action going. Not allowed to really write or say what kind of action, but it's better to get moving than gabbing.

Ah, it's so good to be back in the city. Having caught up with my cousins and siblings, I look forward to getting back to more serious things... and less serious things, for that matter. Hopefully I'll not besmirch the dignity any more resurrected historical figures in the near future, either.

These past days I've mostly busied myself with simple things - keeping track of the fellows in the forge, and working the paperwork with Miriam for the Order. Still, there's plenty of work just waiting for me and it's an important reminder that I pace myself. The hottest flame burns the quickest, to be sure, and if all the fuel is consumed, it goes out.

Sometimes, taking a breath of air, and relaxing a little is the fuel we need.

Relationship Note on Orvyn

I have returned from Fair Harbour to find that Harthall has found its pace in the onward march of the city. I am proud of my family for all the work they have done and look forward to help establish further safe havens for those that seek it in our lands.

I am also glad to be back with the Marquis.
