Relationship Note on Dawn

Lady Dawn of House Grayson. I was curious about what kind of woman would rise as she has. She is the Voice of her house, and I believe I can see why she's been given this honor. I had no expectations of the woman, but after our first meeting, I was left with image of a strong, diplomatic individual. One that rather than eschew advice from others, welcomes it, and is willing to listen when others have been far too quick to close themselves to it. She is pleasant company, and I look forward to see what she'll accomplish in the name of Grayson.

Relationship Note on Dawn

Quite an unenviable fate fell upon Lady Dawn's shoulders. I wish I could help her somehow. Though, she seems to be a very talented young woman, who manages to take care of most of the tasks herself. Pity that she will spend her youth in a dark room filled with dusty papers, but nobody can run from their fate. I can only hope that she will find confidence in me and I still will be of value to my blood-family.

Relationship Note on Dawn

In many ways we are alike though I do not hold nearly the position within my house that she does in hers. Still we agree on what is important and I hope sincerely we may continue to work towards the same goals.

Relationship Note on Kima

I wonder why it is that the brightest of us, those who seem to most shine with their own light, are also those who draw the greatest sorrows. I can see that glow in Lady Kima, but I see the shadows too and I wish I could take them from her. But no matter if it is light or shadows in her eyes, she is very pleasant company, and from the tales told she is most formidable on the battlefield.

Relationship Note on Niccolo

The Voice of Velenosa is a true statesman and, I suspect, a man who would excel in any role he was cast to play. He has suffered more than I have, but his grief seems to have tempered him into something finer and in that, I must see an example to follow. I must not let my worries, grief, and troubles weigh me down, but draw on them as inspiration to prevent tragedies such as these recent events from ever coming to pass again.

Relationship Note on Gareth

My cousin is a man of many talents, an asset to the Grayson name. He is tireless in his pursuit of the truth. I could wish that he found more joy in life but to wish that for him is to dictate choices to a man who has suffered physically, emotionally, and mentally, beyond what most could survive or tolerate. We should not judge him for the course he's carved for himself after that. We owe him a great deal.

Relationship Note on Margot

The reputation of Thrax is fearsome but look beyond the tales of deeds done by their menfolk, and one hears of the elegance, poise, and understated charm of their ladies. Lady Margot of Tyde exemplifies these ideals. She bears a unique position and heavy responsibilities with all of the grace one could hope for.

Relationship Note on Caprice

Rumors swirl around Mistress Caprice as being quite renown with her work, and I hope I can see some of it one day soon. I was introduced to her by Princess Isolde as part of her business proposal - a collaboration of sorts, and I'm rather excited about working with her to see what the two of us can create. She knows her trade well, and I think I could learn a thing or two.

Relationship Note on Larissa

A warm and charming Whisper; she came into my shop just before Princess Isolde had departed and requested a bit of work. Left quite a good impression, I must say. Very kind and generous - I don't think I met a Whisper before, so that was new.

Relationship Note on Isolde

I had the pleasure of meeting Princess Isolde one day - a meeting planned after she wrote to me expressing her interest in a potential business proposal. Considering my curiosity was piqued, I could not very well turn her highness down. Very friendly and sociable noblewoman, I found her most kind and amicable - and she has a very, very shiny mask. It was very enjoyable to socialize with her, she's very outgoing so it was easy to speak freely. I look forward to working with her.

Relationship Note on Fergus

One of the slim few of the Redrain House that I really can't get along with - granted when I try, it typically ends in disaster. I thought Rohkir was a bit uptight and stuffy, Fergus just takes it to a whole other level. I'm not sure he has a sense of humor, at least not the kind I subscribe to. Seems to get along more with nobles than he does people like me, which is good for him, I guess. He's still a prickish asshole. Gods forbid I ever try to be sociable with the man, I might lose my head in the process.

I DID it! Oaths, I finally managed to gain the skills with which to work high quality steel. Pricey stuff, like whoa, but the profit from such things should start to pay for the materials. The first weapon I fashioned is Duke Arn's warhammer. We had already discussed the design, back when it was going to be made of standard steel. When I gained the skill, I sent word to ask if he'd prefer the better metal and, as I suspected, he did. Said he'd love to have the opportunity to be one of the first to receive something crafted with my new skills. Just for that, I made sure I did his first. It will probably now be one of my favorite crafted weapons because of that.

Does life hold for us any lessons, friend? With respect to you, I am sure that there are many. Here is one I have learned today: serious people will never stop waging their war on joy and pleasure, since they are both relentless and tireless.

Pen down, and think on that.

Thanks to the generous Duke Velenosa my bank account isn't so pitiful any more. I made sure to give Acacia credit where credit is due.

Lady Dawn has extended an invite to me to partake in a Market Day she intends to plan soon. It looks like I'll be chopping up a lot of wood!

Game Night will be a good break, I think.

Relationship Note on Arn

Duke Arn Telmar is not someone I know particularly well just yet, if I might ever. His Grace, Prince Edain, asked me to make sure the general was properly outfitted not long after the latter's arrival in Arx. I quickly learned that the duke is a direct man, when he visited to discuss the commission, with seemingly little patience for dancing around a topic. His reputation marks him as a man of import, of course, but what impressed me was seeing him in conversation with Prince Edain. I have every faith in His Grace, but knowing that Duke Arn has his back is comforting. Watching the general with our prince has lead me to like and respect the man, little that I truly know him.

Relationship Note on Gareth

I have met with the Prince Inquisitor a few times now and each time I am left with a mix of feelings. None the less, my hopes are high with this one as I believe that we may need each other more than we realize one day. Let us hope that we can each see beyond the thin veils that hide us...

Decided to go with a bed for the raffle prize. Hopefully whoever wins it has somewhere to put it.

Bank account has pretty much run dry.

Will finish Duke Niccolo's fancy couches before the deadline.

Callum and Jon are big fans of Acacia now...

Need sleep. Zzz.

Relationship Note on Morrighan

A seamstress from the North. The Princess introduced me to her in hopes of collaborating between the styles. I've seen some of her work, and it was well sewn. I'm anxious to see what we'll be able to create together.

Relationship Note on Jacinthe

The Whisper and I have now met on quite a number of occassions. I have taken a liking to her, she is quite different from her cousins. I feel we are becoming fast friends. I do so hope that she likes the dress I've made for her.

Preparations for the People's Choice is well underway. While I'm merely organizing it for those more esteemed, and naturally for the good of those in the Boroughs to whom that bit of the profits is going to, there's a certain satisfaction found in the little things when pieces start to fall into place. Every one of the Great Houses, aside from House Grayson, have thus far extremely graciously promised to have some sampling to contribute and there should be an engaging number of varieties available. With things as they currently are, it's understandable that House Grayson would be occupied with other honorable pursuits, but having their participation for good will all around would certainly keep things interesting. Perhaps they can find someone willing to take to the task for them.

[A missive has been appended, sealed in less than an hour later.]

There seems to have merely been a slight and understandable delay. Members of all Houses have now granted their participation. This should be fun.
