It has been a long two years since leaving Mistridge. I have missed our long and sometimes heated dialogues into the Natural Order and the Fae. The four young magi who came with Galfin the wisen and I have grown much these two cycles, but none yet have been able to fluster me like you can.
Yet, I frown that their studies have been relegated to the mundane tasks of building and supplying a new covenant. I frown that my own research has not progressed as I hoped. I have looked over our walls as they grow tall with envy, I have wanted so badly to truely explore the primordeal forest this valley contains, yet my place is here ensure our new home is completed.
But now, this spring I can finally awake knowing I will have the time explore my new estate! For we have successfully cast the Aegis of the Hearth, the six of us, swearing a bond to support each other through the our covenant, that we may all grow strong together.
I hope this letter finds you well, may we see each other at Tribunal.
The Aegis of the Hearth
leading up to now...
