To Professor Faith Augustin:

Allow me to introduce myself. I am known as Wolstan Rand, proprietor of Wolstans' Almshouse in Treth. My Almshouse is not yet in operation, but I hope to have it staffed, full and running by the time Ashan rolls along. We've already begun building the dormitories that will house the wayward folk and migrant farm workers, and we expect the structure to be ready by the first snows. Yet, things could all fall apart before my charitable enterprise lifts itself off of the ground.

Ne'Haer and its territories are starving, afflicted by a draught that no doubt was caused, at least in part, by the ether storms of the Emean crisis. Subsequently of that draught, we've been suffering a famine, and at the very worst time! Cylus is coming. I do not ask for direct aid or resources, as such goods would likely be barred by the quarantine our city is currently in the grips of. What I ask, is for advice.

Your reputation, as you know, is ubiquitous. You are known for many things, building a town in Scalvoris, Beacon, out of nothing but your own sweat and the help of your many followers. You've fed the hungry, clothed the needy, and built shelters against the cruelty of the world. You undoubtedly may have advice that would prove invaluable to me in my efforts to bring the famine to a close.

As it happens, I've uncovered a cache of some 100 ships biscuits in the storage of my Almshouse. This is enough to feed 300 people for one day. Which is not nearly enough for my purposes, as you'd surely understand. What I aim to do, is marshal what desperate hunters and foragers I can, and gather as many ingredients in order to form a soup Kitchen in the incomplete internals of my Almshouse. But I can't do that without a decent recipe for Ship biscuit chowder. Something that will stretch supplies without sacrificing nutritional value. It's a tall order to feed a greater portion of a city with food that wouldn't feed 300 people for two days. Yet I'm hoping with your advice and guidance, I may find a way to do so.

I thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

W

1st Vhalar, 719


Dear Faith,

I am very glad that everything worked out okay. From what you have told me, Necromancy sounds like a very bad thing, and any who use it should be watched carefully. If I ever see another creature like that child monster, I will do exactly as you suggest; I would really rather not get involved with anything that might want to eat me, and I have no illusions about my abilities to handle such a creature by myself. I wish I had better news to tell you about Hart. The injury looked really bad, and he was carried away by people who work for the Order of Adunih. I have not seen him since, so I do not know if he survived his injury or not, but it is my hope that he has. If I do see him again, I will let him know that you were asking about him.

As for your offer of classes at the University...I hardly know what to say. Except thank you, and I would love to take classes there. Languages have always fascinated me for as long as I can remember, so I will choose linguistics as my course of study. To me, it seems like if you can understand someone's native language, or the one that they identify with the most, it is one step towards understanding them because it opens the lines of communication, and offers the chance to get to know them. Besides...the more languages you know, the more books you can read. It is my hope to one trial be fluent in ever language in Idalos. Thank you hardly seems enough..but thank you. When I have learned enough to earn a degree, maybe I can offer to teach the kids at Luna's Dream. Nats is a wonderful teacher, and I would never want to step on her toes, but if she doesn't mind, then I will offer to teach the kids other languages if they are interested as part of my work at the orphanage.

I would love to meet you if our paths ever cross. It is unlikely that I will ever be in Rharne, but if I am, I will let you know.

Sincerely,

Ari'sora
