Relationship Note on Audric

I should have gotten a copy of that painting for myself. Maybe I will. It is pretty grand.

Relationship Note on Driskell

You are not allowed to be difficult and die. At least without giving me prior notice. Remember that.

'Or else..' seems more suiting to use. Go with that.

Sometimes you confide in someone. You never know why you do it, and you wonder if you made a mistake in the end, but your heart is lighter for it. They tell you something in exchange, sometimes, or offer to help you with what worries you. Always look for someone who earnestly seeks to help you. On the other hand, I ran out of whiskey, and I'm still pouring over these military strategy books.

Relationship Note on Cambria

That is certainly one way to look at it, my Marquessa. Another perhaps is that those who can be bought owe all of their loyalty to coin, rather than to any one person or organization. In that regard you can at least be assured that so long as you have the most coin, you too have the most loyalty.

An optimistic view! At the very least those who I've had the pleasure of working with in mercenary companies have usually been rather upstanding fellows.

Relationship Note on Zara

Let it be known to all citizens of Arx that Her Highness Princess Zara did purchase one (1) white-iced cake at the Mercier Tea Shop tonight. I have given her my solemn word not to speak of this to anyone, and it is an oath I have quite literally kept. Writing down the purchase, however, was unfortunately not discussed.

    We toil in sweat, hardship and exhaustion whether our tasks are in field, ocean, mountain, forest or city. Our work that we do is but a piece in the song of life, mixed with the cries of joy and strife, births and deaths, hymns of peace and dirges of war. However, the gods should be always remembered in our deeds, words and thoughts, our prayers spoken aloud to them as we beseech their blessings upon the work that we do so that we might make the world a far better place than that which we were given, for to each of us is the responsibility of being caretakers of the souls within us.

    Blessed are those who not only petition the gods daily, but lift up their voices in worship and praise. Blessed are those that seek to learn from each of the gods, as the world is created in splendor with a myriad of mysteries to explore. Let this be of help to you then, may you remember it and it become a part of your daily routine.

From midnight to the sixth hour as darkness reigns until the sun breaks its first light, may your hearts and words be in joy to the Thirteenth.
    "In this darkest of hours, I give thanks. May my heart not yield to extremes, may I not be controlled by my passions or not act due to apathy, but instead may I temper my strong emotions with a hope and dream of what I aspire to be. May I be quick to forgive and seek to be the change I desire to see in others. May my thoughts never rush to extremes, but let me live a life in balance."

From the moment the sun breaks first light until midday, may your hearts and words be in joy to the Tetrad of Creation.
    "As darkness has lifted and a new day comes, I give thanks. May my heart be filled with hope as the gift of this day given to me is not wasted, but instead used to grow hope and goodness in others. May my first words and actions with each person be one that sharpens them, may my heart be open to receive correction."

From midday until the eighteenth hour, may your hearts and words be in joy to the Tetrad of Concepts.
    "As I toil and work through the day, I give thanks. May my deeds bring honor to myself, may I treat and conduct myself with others as if I were serving myself and see the best in those I come across. May I work to the best of my abilities, and strive to become better in all that I do for my work and actions are praises to the gods."

From the moment the sun sets until midnight, may your hearts and words be in joy to the Tetrad of Arts and Sciences.
    "As the day finishes, I give thanks. May my last thoughts at this hour focus my heart on the most ideal aspirations I have. May I reflect on the deeds that I've done and where I have erred, may I seek forgiveness and ask for help. My I teach and inspire others to become more than what they are today, and may my heart yearn for tomorrow so I might show what I have learned.

God songs, completed:

Queen of Endings:
While you live, you may treasure every breath.
In her eyes, there is naught to fear from death.
New beginnings bloom, giving greater depth,
As expands the soul, giving greater breadth.

Sentinel:
The righteous fear not, as justice for all
Delivered with swiftness must be our call.
Mind your honor, lest you falter and fall;
The Faceless: impartial to great or small.

Skald:
The trouble with choices is one must choose
One option might win; another might lose
Choosing to act now or choosing to muse?
Too many choices does sorely confuse.

Tehom:
Black ink on black paper: show not a word
Is this a song that should never be heard?
Look through the haze but the image is blurred
Be not darkness else darkness be conferred.

Vellichor:
Knowledge unwritten is knowledge forsook
Your children's children may have a look
Others' wisdom can change paths that you took
What we know now is the future's guidebook.

Enthusiastically disagree! I am perfectly loyal to whoever hires me. And I guess my lieges now, but that's more of a technicality really.

I feel like I've found a new stride in my forging. I like to think I was a good smith before, but now I feel like habit has turned into something akin to intuition, and even the difficult bits of forging are coming just that little bit more easily than they did before.

I find myself eager to see what I can make.

A young man asked me if I would cheer for those going to war.

And of course I will. I will cheer, I will lift my voice in support. I will see and honor their courage and their service. It is worthy of celebration.

But I look at this lad, so much promise and brightness, and I find myself thinking of how many people I miss. And I am not so very old, and yet in that moment I feel every year.
I look at this lad and wonder how many he will miss and how soon.

You young men and women who go to battle in the days to come, may you find the bravery and strength the rest of us see in you. Know that it is not a service we ask for lightly. I will know the names of all who go to battle in Oakhaven's name, and I will know the names of all that do not return. And all will have a place of honor in my heart.

Relationship Note on Fergus

I didn't know you well. But I enjoyed the drink we shared. As silks go, you didn't seem the bad sort, it's a shame we didn't get another drink. I don't imagine ye'd have been the sorts to make friends with the likes of me, but it was good company. Like so many others, yours is a name I'll carry with me.

Relationship Note on Fergus

I have so much I want to say. But, I can only bring myself to write this short thing.

Both you and your brother Anze have helped fill a gaping void that was there in the absence of Valen and Vance. And now, you are gone too. There is nobody else I will allow to call me short-stack and somehow feel honored by it.

I miss you, and hearing you call me affectionately stupid nicknames.
