Hello Arx, how long has it been?

Though I live and breathe Westrock Reach, I'm so terribly happy to be back in the city once again. Already I have made so many wonderful connections and discovered along the way a Lycene lord who is as fond of coffee as am I.

And Lady Mabelle! What can I way of her? I am determined that she and I will be the very best of friends! I am to co-host her in the Annual Honey Festival, the arrangements for which are even now well underway. I do hope that the seamstresses of Arx have plenty of gold and black silk to hand, for there will be the most wonderful of prizes for the best bee outfit of the day. Should I mention that there will be a sting in the tail on the day?

I'm often being approached about marriage contracts with the younglings of House Laurent.
To those who approach me I say:

Bees only marry once they've found their honey.

The Laurent Family are ever fortunate to have family, friends, partners and people of interest who are willing to help with the reconstruction of Artshall.

Even as I've trained with them as we've grown. We've been part of the same crew within the floatila. It's still a treat to watch the two that have been there to help me learn. It's a two way path, while Violeta and Tregva have been hired to help me in my duties. They are still friends to me.

In the torchlight tourney I was proud to be able to watch both of them take to their best in a spar. It wasn't until the last round that they succumbed to two sisters fighting against each other. And in that, we have a group of small impressionable minds that are curious about what an eel might have to do within the spar of the two.

Akamos is a fair match, and was a strong opponent to be paired with. It was good to be able to spar with another that knows the waters over land. I wouldn't turn down another spar from them. There's always room to learn and grow.

Relationship Note on Magaen

The war ended years ago, yet its events live on. My sisters grow more powerful, estranged, like the crowns of two great trees expanding to fill the same canopy, never touching, while I flit along our exposed ancient roots on the forest floor.

Dear Scholar,

The children and I went on an adventure this evening and watched the Clearlake Torchlight Tourney. They were awfully excited that Lord Mattheu Rivenshari was to fight. There was good food and drink as well as lots of fights to watch. But in the end it was Lord Rivenshari that won the match. Akamos Cyrto'ani was a worthy opponent. I was afraid this battle was to go longer than it did.

The Countess Acantha Clearlake was a gracious hostess. Her beaver was quite fun to watch.

Princess Denica Thrax was very welcoming in exchanging words about what otters could do and little Ilan was delighted to have another princess attention. I cannot wait for the next event.

And yes, who could forget the sisters Violeta and Tregva? Even if my children were asking me questions about words used. Raya screaming about winning when Tregva won that fight. Raya demanding that her siblings share their ginger cookies the next they have them even when Sil spat on his hand in their handshake.

The funniest part was watching Ilan in dismay when Lord Rivenshari got confused on which twin was who. I being told that Flounder had gone mad. It is very interesting to see the world in children's eyes. May they always keep that in them even when the world goes dark.

I told a few people this and now I take my power back from them. I take the power back from any who think they can use it over me. Besides, how can I expect to be told the truth when I'm lying...I'm done lying about who I am.

Krosse is no more. The name that hid me for all these years, is gone. Publius has returned. Publius is the name of my family, the name of a strong and powerful Merchant House from Cardia. Yes. I am from Cardia. I am a Cardian Merchant.

I take my power back.

Today, after so many years, I am once again, Dacian Publius.

How do I phrase this? I'm so well-trained in preparing with caution for the worst-case scenario, I've forgotten... one doesn't necessarily scramble to make ready for the good thing promised.

Hope on blue wings.

How is it that you can have such a clear, vibrant image in your mind and then words suddenly seem wholly inadequate. Like trying to dig a grave with a spoon of cut a tree with a butter knife. Mother was right. There has finally come a day that I find myself regretting skipping out on my lessons. Of all the shit she was wrong about how is this the thing that she was right about?

Shopping. Some days I dread it. Some days it is enjoyable. This is not one of those, especially when I can not recall where I once saw that dagger. Maybe someone already bought it.

I've learned that having to change goals is not always bad. Sometimes it is what keeps us sane.

Falling, falling, into the unknown,
Gravity's grasp, pulling me down alone,
Flailing and fighting, for control in vain,
As the world rushes up, to meet me again.

The wind whips by, as I tumble and spin,
My heart racing fast, my mind in a spin,
I close my eyes, and feel the rush,
As I hurtle towards, the ground in a hush.

As the autumn breeze sweeps through the streets of Arx, the leaves rustle and fall from their trees, blanketing the ground with a tapestry of oranges, yellows, and reds. The air is crisp and cool, carrying the scent of spiced cider and pumpkin pies from the bakeries nearby. As I walk through the city, I feel a sense of nostalgia and peace wash over me, as if the changing of the seasons is bringing new possibilities and opportunities for growth. The world around me is transforming, shedding its old skin and embracing the beauty of change. I can't help but feel a sense of excitement for what is to come, both in my personal life and in the world around me.

Zyn, an Admiral! Well ah'll be! Aye, I still remember when she was a stowaway and trying to just get by. Kinda makes a Captain proud to see his old first mate do so well.

We returned to Artshall to rebuild but found some treasures from the past.
