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
Letter for GlowstoneDear Glowstone,
I know our adventures took a greater toll on you than anyone else still breathing, but I hope I can trouble you for more. Among the the business deals Princess Carlia set up was one on the recently colonized planet of Dixon in the Hoban system. Collaborating with local researchers, Auron's Arcanists have been studying a mysterious structure there unlike anything else in the galaxy. They believe there might be other related ruins elsewhere, but the presence of interplanetary smugglers and thieves makes it difficult to investigate. That's where we come in. Our prior experience with ancient ruins and our prowess in combat makes us the perfect people to aid this effort.
As you might have guessed, I am extending this invitation to the rest of our former party as well in a possibly vain attempt to get us all back together for old times' sake. I will admit that I have been trying to keep in touch with everyone since we parted ways, and
Nierra's Journal - Of Homecoming and Revival9th of Awakening, 1817
Today has proven to be most eventful. To start off, I died again. It wasn't exactly like last time, either. This time, I actually ended up in the afterlife, and I met Lolth, the Spider Queen herself. She didn't seem to like me, given her tone of voice, and the fact that she kicked me out of the afterlife and back into the world of the living. I wonder how many people can boast that. Certainly not many on Gyarkalithu. It probably has something to with the fact that Gyaros is a Spider Goddess as well. I'm not surprised that Lolth is the jealous type.
I should also mention that we finally caught up to Zarvikius, and his confrontation with King Perfect went, shall I say, better than expected. I half expected them to try to kill each other, and that's definitely not what happened. Steve attempted his usual pot stirring antics, fortunately to no avail. If he had been successful, we probably would have be
Nierra's Journal - Of Fear and Faith8th of Awakening, 1817
It's funny. I know exactly what Zarvikius is capable of, and I'm not afraid. Even Cinnabar is afraid. She didn't tell me that, but her body language speaks volumes. If I'm ready to rush in where a demon fears to tread, maybe I'm not as sane as I thought. Or maybe I am afraid and some other emotion is overriding that. I'd talk to Cinnabar, to try to reassure her, but she's writing in her own journal right now, and if she's courteous enough to not interrupt me while I'm writing, the least I can do is return the favour.
Is it faith? Not religious faith, mind you. I've never been a strong believer in any god. I do however, have faith in the power of diplomacy, and in the idea that my friends and I can overcome anything when we work together. Our exploits on Hydros really boosted my confidence there. That being said, a demon capable of giving someone the power to destroy a planet might be a bit out of o
