[Celeste Andaris] Mightier than the sword

Fri Apr 07, 2017 4:25 am

12th of Ashan, 717 Arc
The Stunning Celeste,

I don't believe I did you justice by writing a simple letter to you, although I am honored you feel that way. Since my correspondence, I have thought about how I should have visited you in person. Anyone can offer lovely words, but as a noble born, I find actions are what define truly a man. Truth be told, I could make a thousand excuses about being busy, and while I was, you deserved more. Especially after the events that transpired. I was a coward. I do deeply apologize, but I am happy to hear from you now. Life has been a whirlwind for me as of late, and I could use a friend. I would like to be that to you as well, if you would allow me. Write to me as much as you like or... perhaps I could come by?

Would it come as a surprise to you if I said I had business in Krome? I was hoping to travel there later this season, however the king has plans for me. Being recently introduced to the guard, I'm not sure I'm capable of asking for a vacation. A shame really, but I will go to Rharne and when I return, perhaps we can finish our lunch in the garden. I doubt it will have as many flowers as my duchy, but who needs them when you're there?

I'd wait for your response with bated breath, but if I must hold on so many seasons for your next letter, I fear I would die. Ha. Sorry, was that too crass? I mean well.

Yours truly,
Andráska
(and hopefully your favorite Venora)

77th of Ashan, 717
Celeste Andaris,

I've returned from Rharne. [A few words have been written and furious scratched out. Unreadable.] If possible, I would like to take you up on your offer to visit. I'm....[more words destroyed – looks like 'not ready to go home'] very tired, so I will cut this letter short. Sorry.


I hope to see you very soon,
Andráska Venora

[Celeste Andaris] Mightier than the sword

90th of Ashan, Arc 717

Celeste,

Your presence is requested in the capital at once. With your eldest brother, Peake, suspected to be dead and your other brothers of unknown whereabouts, your father's abdication falls upon you. As of this moment, you are to be the Baroness of Astedia, ruling in the city of Drakengard. Report to me immediately in Andaris, and prepare for the journey.

Sincerely,
His Grace Thomas of House Andaris, First of the Andaris Line, Lord of the Capital and its Holdings

[Celeste Andaris] Mightier than the sword

Tue Jun 06, 2017 2:36 am

1st of Ymiden, 717
Celeste,

I am writing you to reassure you of my health, both mental and physical. I have recovered nicely and have full use of my limbs – a blessing previously taken for granted. Much of my time has been dedicated to my music. Unfortunately, I haven't had the time to write a song I'm happy with, as my mind is still a bit murky, but I am trying. In regards to your offer to play for your daughter, I have been learning to sing so that I may have something in common with her, but I must admit... It's a lot harder to pick up than piano. I hope she isn't too critical. Venora egos are fragile things, after all.

I'm afraid the rest of my leisure is being consumed by the King and my people. The barony I inherited is hardly a barony at all – just a patch of land on the coast. I think my father must think it will always remain that way, but he doesn't see what I see – potential. A sanctuary. Oh, Celeste, I have such great plans, it gives me hope for the future. I just hope I can live up to everyone's expectations and more so – my own.

Finally, I write you to gauge your interest in establishing a trade route between my barony and yours. As your friend, feel free to deny me and there shall be no hard feelings, but I imagine it could be mutually beneficial to both of us. I will aim to come visit you this season, however I will warn you that my presence has already been requested by an old companion, and will require me to travel across the seas once more. I bet you didn't realize you had competition, did you?

Rest assured, you're still my favorite. As proof, I want to include what would have been your wedding gift from me had you joined my family, as I'm not quite sure what to do with it now. I have no sisters, and no wife, and letting it collect dust feels wasteful. I recognize it is a bit overly extravagant and it is not my intention to anger your husband-to-be. If this is ill-timed, I trust your judgment. You always seem to know what to do – you're far more practical than myself.

I would be lying if I told you I didn't want you to like it, but I never was good with picking out these sorts of things.... I just want you to know how much I appreciate everything you've done for me. You're the only one who extended a hand when I had fallen.

Send my love to Lord Krome (but not too much),
Your favorite Venora

Dear Celeste Andaris,

My name is Kura Mareth, and I am the Councilor of Foreign Affairs for the island of Scalvoris. I am looking to create a diplomatic and trade alliance between Scalvoris and the Duchy of Andaris. As the heir apparent to the duchy, and by my understanding already heavily involved in the ruling of Andaris, I would like to speak with you regarding setting up such an alliance between our territories. With the benefit of the Eclipse Portals connecting Scalvoris and Rynmere, it is easily possible for us to arrange a face to face meeting to discuss the benefits of an alliance between us. I look forward to your response.

Sincerely yours,
Kura Mareth
Councilor of Foreign Affairs for the island of Scalvoris.

Duke and Duchess,

I know.

About all of it, his actions, your reactions... And the time has come for him to answer for his crimes. Included below are very specific instructions that, if followed, will ensure the success of this correction, as well as a loosely detailed plan going forward. Should you choose not to act, simply burn this letter in your fireplace and think nothing of it again. There are more ways to skin a squalling cat.

A similar letter has been sent to the Duke's sister detailing a similar plan. Speak quietly if you speak at all.

Invite the Baron and Baroness to dinner in Endor. Duke, subdue him. Consider mentioning to the Duke's sister to use her earned gifts to subdue the Duchess non-violently, should you wish to keep those innocent by proxy from harm's way. After subduing the Baron, take him down to the mines. Enact your justice, and know that it may only come once, so ensure that he knows the crimes he is paying for. Leave the body in the mines. The Seven need not see his disgrace.

Move quickly in Ashan, using the thaws and rains as cover. Be discreet.

Or do not. The world will move either way, and mountains tend to bury smaller stones anyway.

-Justice

Dear Celeste Andaris,

My sincerest apologies for the delay in a reply to your letter. I had sent a letter to King Renault in the hopes of having the restrictions on the Eclipse Portals lifted, though I regret to say that I met with no success on that front. That aside, however, it is my hope to be able to visit Astedia in Ashan. Due to the slow nature of mail delivery and the speed capable of some of the mounts on Scalvoris, I am hoping that this letter reaches you before I visit, so as to avoid being an unexpected visitor.

I thank you for your concern in checking to be sure that I will not need any specific accommodations, and it is my pleasure to report that I am in perfectly good health and have no special needs or traditions that need to be handled. I too look forward to our meeting, and offer my congratulations on the birth of your children. Scalvoris does get quite cold during this time of the year, and I would not wish you to be so far away from your children, though I do extend an invitation for you and your family to visit during the warmer months. Among other things, we have quite the set of lovely vacation spots.

Yours truly,
Councilor Kura Mareth
Head of Foreign Affairs, Scalvoris Ruling Council
