Nierra's Journal - Of Justice and Friendship18th of Applefall, 1817
I just feel awful right now. I've helped protect an imposter and a wanted murderer from a legitimate authority. I'm not entirely sure why I did that, and it's really bothering me.
Maybe I should start at the beginning. I wrote earlier about Steve acting suspicious; turns out I was right to be concerned. He wasn't Steve at all, but a Doppelganger known as Allen Walker. Timmy was the one to first accuse him of it. Naurally, we were all distrusting of him and tried to catch him in the act. I thought the best course of action would be to return to Gyarkalithu to find the real Steve. I regret that. He immediately tried to kill Timmy for what happened to Altair, and then turned to Allen and tried to kill him too. We all had our own reasons to object. I felt Steve only had the right to deliver his brand of justice in his own lands, Torrune felt it was far too brutal an application of justice.

Second Letter for GlowstoneDear Glowstone,
While I was slightly disappointed that you declined my invitation, I understand your reasons, and I will not hold it against you. That's not why I'm writing to you again. I was just wondering if the name Redstone meant anything to you. He's a talking pegasus we met here in the Arch. He works as a gunsmith (albeit energy based guns, rather than ones firing traditional bullets), he's been known to frequent the local brothel, and we suspect he's made deals with a Crime Lady we're trying to track down. I know it's a long shot, but I was curious regardless.
P.S. Want to check if the DracoNet Chat works across universes later? If it does, that might be easier than these letters.
Nierra's Journal - Of Reunions and New Worlds18th of Applefall, 1817
Oh, I have missed this. Not just the writing, but all of it. Seeing old friends again, making new ones, exploring an untamed landscape, investigating ancient mysteries. You know how it is, future me or hypothetical other person reading my journal. Maybe you're Cinnabar, but you're probably me, rereading what you've written already. In any case, it doesn't really matter who you are since I'm starting to ramble in my writing again. Back on track now.
I suppose I should start with where I am. I'm writing from the city of the Arch on the planet Dixon. Officially, I'm here as an ambassador from Gyarkalithu. In theory at least. In practice, Arino is handling a lot of the paperwork, while I do the fun stuff, like exploring caves and shooting bandits. That being said, I still have to "babysit" Steve, and his antics seem to be getting worse. I'll talk more about that later. I'm just going to fo
Galactic ShippersWhile the Gates provide an easy means of interstellar travel for common denizens of the Draconis Galaxy, they're not as good for transporting large goods, or large quantities of regular sized goods. That's where companies like Galactic Shippers come in. Contrary to popular belief *cough*Cinnabar*cough*, they are not an interplanetary matchmaking service or a dating website.
Galactic Shippers actually predates the Gates by several centuries, when the only means of travelling between planets were by ship or by getting the help of a wizard or something. Their services were commonly employed by settlers and people simply moving to another planet or system. They were also known for ferrying refugees fleeing their homeworld for one reason or another.
Following the advent of the Interplanetary Gates, Galactic Shippers' Board of Executives feared that their company had become obsolete, and that they would soon go out of business. Fortunately, these fears proved un
Letter for CinnabarMy dearest Cinnabar,
It is most regrettable that our work often separates us, but I think I see an opportunity for our professional paths to cross again. How familiar are you with the Arch on the planet Dixon? The Auronites are helping the locals investigate it, and I'm working on bringing in further assistance from other sources.
You know I really don't trust your employers, but I can't deny that Jevona's resources would be extremely helpful here, and I'm sure they'd be interested in the findings. I'm also getting in touch with the IDSI and Gyarkalithu's Psionic Guild for the same reason. We need all the help we can get here. So far, everyone's baffled by this thing.
On the topic of Jevona, has Alice turned up? I haven't seen her since what happened on Gyaros, not that I'd go out of my way to do so, but I really doubt she's dead. Is someone filling in for her right now? Anyway, I do hope you'll come yourself, as I very much wish t
Letter for RaincoatsDear Captain Ser Raincoats George,
How has your new rank been treating you? I hope you have been doing well. I know it hasn't been that long since we saw each other, but I felt the need to ask anyway. Now, I didn't just write this to exchange pleasantries. I'm writing this from the planet Dixon, where there's a structure that should be of great professional interest to you and the higher up in the Imperial Department of Supernatural Investigations.
The aforementioned structure has been dubbed The Arch, and in what seems like a severe lapse in judgement, offworld colonists have built a city under and around it. Back on the topic of the Arch itself, it's covered in runes unlike anything seen in the galaxy. The Auronite Arcanists have been able to detect a magical aura around the Arch, but they haven't managed to do anything else with it. Given our party's past experience with the Orbs and dealing with Gyaros, we'd be the perfect people to help, a
Letter for SteveDear King Stevasaurus Rex the First,
How have things been in your kingdom? It has been a while since I visited, so I hope you and your citizens are doing well. Anyway, down to business. The Auronite Arcanists have been investigating a strange ruin on the planet Dixon, and they would like our help. This ruin is unlike anything else in the known galaxy, so I'm sure you'll understand their interested, and I'm sure you can see the value of kobolt involvement in this project.
The planet also provides ample mining opportunities, as it has only been settled legitimately within the past few decades. Exploiting this opportunity could be a source of great income for your people, so I suggest you stake this claim before someone else does. In light of the discussion you had with my brother on Korlun's Day, I trust you understand the importance of strong trade relations for a burgeoning kingdom such as yours.
Whether you choose to come yourself or send a re
