Don't ask me how, but I've managed to secure a bottle of Diarnay Red. It was not easy, however I thought you might like a taste of home as opposed to a local brew. That, and there was no Megam rum to be had in the entire palace that I could afford.

Happy Birthday.

... I should have been there ... I really should have been there ... I failed. I failed and it's silly to be so upset because they're not upset at me but I still failed!

And ...

Councillor, I trust that I can rely on you to help contain any upsets that may arise as a result of overriding Edalene's authority.

Damn. Just...damn.

I think the sooner we get out of here, the better. Besides, I really should be with them in Atsiria.

Now, I wonder, is it too morbid to start wondering and picturing the battle in my mind? One must have a clear picture, after all, in order to appreciate it, and Joseph is hardly a good descriptor.

I'm almost saddened that your lady mother and father listened to my advice and stayed home, Lady Tyre. How amusing it might have been, but alas, a man plays with the cards he is given. And wouldn't it be deliciously ironic if you were crippled in the same way Keane of Sylea pretended to be? I'm sure House Sylea would find that even more amusing than I would. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a hand for a hand, is that not how the saying goes? Though I profess I may have added the last bit, my memory is simply horrible that way.

And what might you say to me afterward, I wonder? Is that how my identity might finally become clear on these journals? I suppose that I could sacrifice more soldiers to the One-Eyed Crow if I must -- none of them would hesitate, you realize, not after I'm through with them, of course, they never do -- but I find the concept of meeting my dear killer face-to-face somewhat enthralling. Lynette would have my head, but alas, Lynette would not understand my purpose.

Oh, how I will enjoy the briefing Joseph gives me upon his return, Lady Tyre. Good battle.

I don't often discriminate when it comes to beliefs under my command, but I think I will have to switch people who show less direct loyalty to the Queen and more loyalty to the command structure to the more important positions. Not that I have very many of those.

Things could get a tad messy, and that just wouldn't be good. Hopefully she'll start to listen to reason before these measures are needed.

So yeah, the merchant woman finally fired me. I saw it coming for a few days, but frigg if it doesn't mess up my plans. I just bought a new axe, and was hoping to have a couple more days of employment to cover my expences at the better inn! Guess it's back to slumming it.

Met a real nice looking girl from back home once I got back to the old inn I was staying at before. She was angry before she started talking to me, and I guess she's still angry cause I have this bruise. If a woman doesn't want to be called a whore she shouldn't try selling herself for dragon's sake! 'pparently she's trapped here since the guy who brought her over didn't give her enough money for ship fare back. Serves her right.

Guess there's nothing much else to say.

Recommended reading: Place the Moons. Joseph Edgar continues the true version of Eban and Rhiaeen's romance in a spectacular fashion in a modern setting. I think this author is going places, and a prolific scribing company has picked it up. In fifty years, it will be famous across Eire in my opinion.

One night the moons disappear from the sky. Eighteen years later, a pair of twins are on the run from church officials. The pair must fight the very dragons that bound them to the sky before they escaped... or is it just a ruse? You don't find out until a remarkably spectacular ending.

Who would have thought an westerner living in Rayla would have had the guts to write something like it? Best thing I have read all year. And with the Moon Festival coming up, I'm sure to sell a few copies.

Whatever clever story you've no doubt been hard at work constructing is taking too long to perfect. I hope that mine will suffice, though it is likely too truthful for your tastes. My apologies in advance.

[Filter: Public]

Contrary to certain rumours, I am very much alive. I do like to think that can be considered good news, though I will admit that I suffer from some measure of bias.

Unfortunately, it is all too common that good news is accompanied by tidings of a far less pleasant sort, and this is, unfortunately one such case. It is my understanding that this will not come as a surprise to many of you who reside in the lower districts of this city, but there was a recent attempt on the life of a distinguished and respected man, a Councilor I hold in high regard, despite our differing views of the current situation of the city of Norey. It was unsuccessful, I am happy to report.

It will also come as no surprise to some of you, if what I have gathered about the nature of his methods is true, that the man coordinating this treason was Prince Tristel, my own brother, a fact that pains me a great deal to discover. However, let it not be said that any man or woman here is above the law. You all know, of course, the penalty for treason.

I do not intend to run an administration that protects lawbreakers of any stature or birth. I also do not intend to allow those with no such claims to suffer, where I have influence to relieve it. I want you all to know that in my eyes, you are equal, and I will strive to influence the Council accordingly wherever I am able. I ask you also to understand that I am only one man, High Prince though I may be, and the efforts of one man against a Council of Twelve begets only slow progress, that may be difficult at times to perceive. It does not, however, mean there is none.

I will be addressing the city tomorrow, as well, in the first truly open Forum since the Palace gates closed, on the Night of the Dead. You are all welcome to attend, rich or poor, it does not matter. And I will see to it that it does not matter to my advisors, as well. I do not expect to make up for the actions of this Council over the past year in a single day, but I do intend to set a new tone, one that does not exclude the people, against the very founding principles of this institution.

I hope you will all attend. Unless, of course, you are planning an attempt on my life, in which case I would urge you to reconsider. They tend to lose their dramatic effect when they occur more than once per week, you understand.

Well, like bloody hell I'm going to simply stop writing my thoughts down because a few people can see them~!!

This trip isn't so bad, though as predicted, Fartgus's voice (by the way, when you're adding an apostrophe a word that ends in "s" but is not a plural, correct grammatical form is to add another "s" after the apostrophe. You'd be just shocked how much published material I've found not to know that!!) is just insufferable in a contained area, I mean, really horrid. He should simply use the journal, it would be so much easier on everyone. Aside from that, it's been largely uneventful, though I did finish Midsummer Night's ... which reminds me, my lord, are you still interested in borrowing it??

The strange halfwit who got all up in my face the first time I wrote still hasn't given me an explanation. Perhaps that's normal behaviour for a halfwit, as I told them, they're the first I've met!! Still, it would be nice to have an explanation, bloody hell.

Understanding what is going on with these things is utterly perplexing, though it is fun translating the different languages. Hm, and also, it's ever such a pleasant coicidence that Kiefer does have a magical journal. It's hard not to trust it when Fartgus is sitting on the other seat flipping away in his, and it would be so nice to send messages to my family when I need to.

I think that's just about all I have to say!!

Rumors. Do I ask what is going on or ...

If something happened, they would tell me. After all rumors are ... even so, they mentioned

... I have work to do here. Little that it is. If... it is truly serious then they would say.

Or maybe that's why they aren't

... I'll give it a little while. At least until things here... haha, as if they're actually going to calm down any time soon.
