Dear Lord Andaris,
These events regarding rebellions, "false Kings", traitors to alliances and other such vile daliances have caught my attention. As a more conservative mind approaching these domestic matters, I struggle to find reason in why our men and women - lowborn and Highborn alike - gather together in the deconstruction of our nationality, our ethics and our more refined and vocal method of disputing allegations, during national congregation. The world of the common mortal's mind, however, seems to reflect a reality in which lust for bloodshed and the rejection of reason are prized far more greatly than the joyous alignment of hearts and minds to a cause beneficial to the Kingdom of a whole.
My people, those of Venora, are most certainly of a peaceful nature. While we may engage in Knightly tournaments, hunt and throw grand martial events, we do not wish for our men's training to actually come to a point where it becomes necessary. We much prefer the warm touch of wine, the chill of controversial artistry and the valiant poetry that reigns in times of peace rather than war. We are a people of love and roses. It is for this that we have been loved by others, and given our credence by the other Noble Houses. Each land has a part to play - ours, bringing art, music, fashion and luxury to the lands around us.
As you can most certainly discern from this, our pride is on the line. While my family has not openly begun the support of the false King, for some reason my mother in her power mongering has determined that my cast-off sister is fit to be Queen. As someone unfortunately raised with my sister, and by my absent-brained mother and father, I know that none of those three individuals are fit to lay their hands into the luster of the crown. That right is reserved for an Andaris alone, and I as a mere rose in the shadow of a dragon know my place in the political landscape.
I do not wish to be King. I wish to be ruled by a proper King, and that man is not Veljorn. I know you feel the same way - every wise Andaris should, as they have brought Rynmere to great and prosperous times despite the frail state of the world around us. I wish to discuss these matters with you in person, as someone who has tried and will continue to try to relegate my family's support for the traitor. If you would, come to Sabaissant, the city of art. I promise not to greet your entrance with a grand ball or anything of the sort, as I grew up with you for long enough a time to know that - like me - you don't favor such public events.
My mother has sworn not to confront you regarding your political affiliation. This meeting is about you and I, from heir to heir, regarding the future of the Kingdom we were born to rule.
From an Old Friend,
Alistair Nathaniel Venora, First of His Name and Future Lord of the Great House of Venora
