The waiting game

Lots of things happen, but no substantial fighting: the next bout of that, barring skirmishes, will probably be at the gates of Solay. This letter, and the previous, will probably arrive at some time, unless someone sinks the ship. Dearest Ayneth, If someone had told me that war is mostly…

Unleashing the weather

It’s a good thing that any Khas who have even heard of what happened will flee (er, actively avoid) General Beguyan’s army rather than risk a confrontation, because if Raith does much more of this she could mess up the weather of Jomhur and nearby parts of the world for…

Cora’s letter to Kisif

This is the letter Selle forwarded. I’m leaving Cora’s spelling– it’s likely that she can’t conceive of unaspirated initial ‘k’, especially not before a front vowel. Turenay, three weeks before the festival of the Most Holy God of Money, To my dearest friend Khisif Dearest Khisif, Please give my regards…

Cora writes to Selle

Who has caught herself a nobleman to make a respectable woman of her. Cora astin Velain to Selle astin Hayan Turenay, three weeks before the festival of the Most Holy God of Money, To my very dear friend Selle, Dearest Selle, please give my warmest regards and greetings to your…

A letter from Moyri to Tal-Nus

She’s been too pregnant, too busy and too tired to have any actual adventures, but that doesn’t mean she has nothing to write! Ysellei Moyri astin Rhydin, Valdis, tenth week after the feast of Anshen, the year 347 To her uncle Eldan and her brother Lydan Dear Uncle, dear Brother,…

Teaching and learning

Another letter from Raith. She’s not the diary-keeping kind but I think she’d blog if she had the technology: she needs to write to someone, even though it’s unclear when or even whether it will arrive. She gets technical at one point, but Ayneth is probably used to that. Darling…

Raith writes to Ayneth from the front

This is turning into a real mini-campaign. Mini-continuity glitches are being addressed with mini-retcons (someone reported missing who Raith has already mentioned as being in existence, things like that). Note that Raith wrote the first letter to Ayneth before the letter to Athal, even though I wrote and posted it…

Coming and going

Raisse is uncharacteristically brief, but she and her player have both been very busy. My description of events will be somewhat short, because my mind has been on other things and I did not write it down as promptly as I should have. Prince Attima arrived at the palace with…

A letter from Dimani

She is writing to Moyri at last; including a small skillfully executed painting of flowers. To Moyri astin Rhydin in Valdis. Dear Moyri, First of all, let me congratulate you on the birth of your twin children. Your parents have shown me the drawings and they are absolutely charming. Forgive…

Raith writes to Ayneth

This is the letter of which she said, in her letter to Athal, “there’s nothing in her letter that I haven’t said to you, except the kind of things I’d never say to you”. Well, in that case there’s a lot that she’d never say to him: things that make…
