[The Watchers Union] Homework

15th of Ashan 721

The shallow bay Egilrun is situated upon is used, these trials, for crafts and crafting. From boatmakers to weaponsmiths, glassblowers to metalworkers, the sound of hammers and saws can be heard almost every break of the trial, with crews working in shifts to produce the beautiful craftsmanship which they might, one trial, become famous for.

Comments: I had fun writing this thread with little Miss Ima Spy! I hope I get to read more about her doing intelligence/research stuff.

Perdita’s approach is low-key but determined, which is a good combination for that sort of thing. She’s also patient with her sources; she didn’t get all frustrated when she realized the “records” she got were basically marketing fluff. And she knows when to push and when not to push if she wants to avoid provoking suspicion while still ferreting out the information that she wants.

It was amusing to read her entertaining herself with the espionage/intrigue fantasy while reminding herself to stay sober and properly nerdy in her research.

Enjoy your rewards!
