Dorak - Short Missives

Dear Grandpa,

Ulises alive, in Venchenzia. Good news overall.

Lydia alive, in Venchenzia. Not as horrible as possible but very bad fortune, overall.

Time is short but things are going well.

More hopeful than I was but still behind a pickaxe with an awfully tall tunnel to dig.

You know how you say that you never trusted a politician who wasn’t a bit of a conman?

I met a politician I think you’d like today.

Cheers,

- Dorak


Mario,

A bonus for your assistance. May you see the halls that Korak designed one day.

Be careful about using these, as they are more colorful in the languages of the more interesting people.

Captain Hector,

Thank you for the letter.

It was most fortuitous that I visited the school, though I do not have time to study and learn such skills now.

I fear I shall likely have to wait until we are near to Archemaine as weeks of study with the timeframes ahead of us would only be possible were I to bring the Master with us aboard the ship.

With eight people who are not crew, I doubt that wise, and certainly could be risky for the Master.

Thank you for opening both avenues to me. I believe that the skill is better overall though the steel would be more beneficial sooner.

There are a total of three groups who are tracking this mission: The Explorer’s through me, Tinelites through Neophyte Ignatius, and the High Council, though I do not know whether Kumori or Smriti would be the one to file those reports. I am certain that neither would wish me to put my plain tongue to paper for such an audience, and that Coatl’s view of civilization is not well suited to report to such a personage.
