The Greenmarch Family continues to prove to be a never ending supply of surprises, and all of them pleasant. People of honor and passion, they are a happy contrast to the normally dour, buttoned up members of the northern lands I call home. They know perfectly who they are, and are comfortable in their skins, and the differences between they and I create for a refreshing dose of change.

House Telmar is fortunate to have them in the fold, and I look forward to meeting more of their members and learning more of the ones I've already had the privilege of spending time with.

Where the bloody hell is Ianthe? What's happened to my sister?

Back in the city, back to normal life. It's amazing how you can bounce back, isn't it? Running about, getting into scraps. Ran into Lady Regent Dawn and her adorable hound at the Ambassador.

Took on some more business for the Society and had a surprisingly pleasant and not at all disturbing lunch with Legate Orazio.

Had Serafine over for a lovely private brunch! No towels were harmed.

Now I have about ten billion dispatches to get through and training exercises and troop discipline to sort out. It's amazing how much work can pile up. I can't even imagine what Vincere is facing at the Ministry. I'm surprised Lady Regent Dawn can even find him in there under all those papers and envelopes and that surprising accumulation of pens.

Relationship Note on Leta


A good fighter. And a pleasant person to talk to. Always looking for the next job. Find it hard to believe that one of her skill is still looking. People should beating down her door offering her a job.

I think she is the first friend I have made in Arx. I have no idea if she feels the same. But I enjoy the time I spend with her.

Relationship Note on Fiachra

The Grenmarch House has yet to disappoint in having the most interesting cast of family members. The latest one I met was Lord Fiachra Greenmarch. His easy going nature and straight forward manner is a continued breath of fresh air, and I am left in little doubt as to the honor and duty he holds in high regard when it comes to family and household.

Relationship Note on Hadrian

In his absence this past year I have felt spread thin. Pulled in too many directions and had my focus strained and demanded at every turn.

And now that he has returned, for good it looks like, I find myself able to hone in and focus on what is most important to me again. Our soldiers have never been more well trained. My goals never more focused or aligned. I feel like myself again.

Two side of the same coin, brother. I have your back, you have mine.

Relationship Note on Serafine

Spent most of my day doing strength training with Serafine.

The more I'm around her, the more I absolutely adore her. We shared stupid stories, gross stories, hilarious ones. We compared notes on a multitude of things.

She's one of my favorite things in the god's green realm.

Spoke with Marquis Vincere this afternoon, after Princess Alis appointed me to liase between the Compact and the Valardin military. Very to-the-point, no-nonsense type; I expect we'll work well together going forward. This is the sort of thing the Duke would want being done, isn't it?

Relationship Note on Alis

Delightful woman. A proud warrior Princess and Knight of her realm. Sparred her today, and she used a flail, a weapon I see very little of in the North, and used it well. An excellent bout, and I hope to fight her again.

She mentioned something about 'making sure she was in her steels this time', so it should be interesting.

Relationship Note on Valencia

I've seen Princess Valencia out and about on a few of my dining excursions now, it seems she likes to try out the various meals served around the capital nearly as much as I do. As we share a common city of origin of course I'm quite happy to spend the time in her company, although I'm sure that it's not at all necessary as she's doing quite well with the Redrains by all measures that I can see.

Relationship Note on Gavin

I went to visit Master Gavin today.
He offered to go for a walk and we went to the beach where he had prepared a picnic. We ended spending the day there.
I like the beach and the sea. It's relaxing and calm... Although I think it's just because I'm seing it from afar, I don't think I'd like to be in a ship.
He made an interesting question... "What should happen next?"

With the return to Arx, I am reminded of other duties. Helping slay the Beast of Sanctum met my oaths to Greenmarch and Valardin, but it opened my eyes to other needs as well. As Minister of Agriculture, I can already see that the presence of these foul creatures stains the ground where they have been. We will need to find a way to cleanse the corruption.

I'm going to need to find foresters, alchemists, priests and shamans to help with this. And I thought my life as a minister was going to be nothing more than deciding whether or not to fund the wainright's new wagon business.

Relationship Note on Aislin

I met Aislin in the Shrine of the Thirteenth. She was there to examine the altar, I was there because the artist in me is perverse. We spoke about demons and elves, and she seems more knowledgeable than most about the current threats to the realm.

I met Aleksei at the training center. We spared. He won.

Relationship Note on Leo

There is a lot of bad blood between the Fidantes and my house for obvious reasons, but the more we delve in to the causes behind it the more determined I am to make peace with them. We are unified in a common goal.

The duke has a good grasp of tactics, as I would expect, and a sound head. He is also more capable with his family's blade than I would have anticipated but I forget he is a man of both words and deeds.

One of those deeds I feel I owe him a debt for and it's not what he did in that tained hell-grove outside Greenmarch.

Relationship Note on Marcas

I met Marcas at the training center. He seemed distracted by messengers he was receiving. It must be a burden to be so sought after.

I met Prince Cicero at the training center. He's remarkably more wise than I.

What have I learned from this mission...

Princess Alis is a capable commander, one who understands the need for sacrifice to achieve the mission goal when it is truly worthy.

Don't piss off Duke Leo Fidante. I find it frightening when he and I are in agreement on something but we both have the same goals in mind.

Diamondplate works like in the old stories. This is true. This is good to know.

Holy water has some effect; I recommend it for cleansing any wounds or ichor. I will have to continue to monitor those wounded for any changes as we have never dealt with these kinds of injuries in recorded history. Or it was recorded at some point but lost to us over time.

I'm sure my lack of colorful language surprised people but they've never seen me on campaign before. I save that for my civilian life.

Most importantly, I have found I have the fortitude to do what must be done regarding our enemies. My darker side is a shield and shelter even when confronting something blacker and more terrifying. I did not falter, I did not fall.

May Gloria smile upon those who gave their lives so we may save others.

This was the first. There will be more. But we know more now than we did.
