Troubling news indeed. Their journey is almost at its end, so those who survived will be with me in a matter of days now, Sovereigns willing. This setback will be felt deeply, but the cargo was confirmed as intact which remains the priority right now. Next I hear back from Dak, I will pass on what my Dark Lanterns have advised and charge our new companions with a new mission – It would appear that our interests overlap yet again and I am beginning to think that my stance on coincidence is due for revisitation.
Thank you again for showing me this kindness; I will check in again tomorrow. One forgets the speed at which communications travel for those outside of a House or mercantile guild. You have my utmost gratitude for your kindness and your help in reaching my husband, but I mustn’t linger; If anyone were watching me I fear our efforts will be quickly undone.
What purpose could this possibly serve? All you do is tip your hand to your enemy. You know nothing of war, and before long, my Lord will see reason and quash your pathetic attempt at ascent into something more than you could ever be. The future belongs to the warforged, and the only corpses that will be tolerated are those which do not move or undermine themselves for a petty show of strength.
Why keep this travesty secret? Our followers are many and already spread across the lands: We could employ their aide now more than ever before. Krozen, you may be high cardinal but you do not speak for the entire council in this matter and I insist that I be heard. Need I remind you of my authority? The current circumstance does not change the order which has allowed us to thrive for centuries.
Yes, we have an understanding, but I’m gonna need payment up front. There’s a Justicar about asking a lot of uncomfortable questions, and the risk has gone way up. We’re women of our word, so the price we named is the price we ask still and you can still rely that the job will be done to your absolute satisfaction. Speaking of … While you’re here; can I interest you all in some entertainment, drink, or perhaps some company? On the house, naturally.
Soon… Soon vengeance will be mine and we will retake what is ours. And just to be clear, I mean that I will retake what is mine. You will be paid well for your assistance, then you will be gone from my sight. Impolite? My man; do you not relieve people of their lives by occupation? And you dare to comment on my propriety?
Have you even considered what we are to do should we find the entrance? We have already suffered great losses already and seem no closer to finding Dhourangård than when we left Turbine. I understand that we are nothing but instruments of blunt force in your eyes, Malevonor, but we must work together if we are to have any hope of besting a dragon, let alone finding the wretched thing.
They sure took their sweet time getting here. Those disappearances were broader than just ‘round these parts, so look like they weren’t involved there, but curious thing that there ain’t been another murder since we all had our exchanging of words. Curious too that you’re bringing that magic stick o’ yours into the ingress tunnels, Magnus “d’” Deneith; need to reassert your influence over this “party” who are so quick to defend your name?

… Because, Moranna, I am left to clean up the mess. We can rebuild the economy, repair the damage wrought by the war and instil a new sense of pride in what it means to be a Karrn; but your actions threaten to undo what I have worked so hard to achieve. And for what? Blast you woman! Vol has nothing to do with this! It was in shedding my debt to her that an end to the bloodshed became possible. You speak as though she still had you beguiled.
We keep this just between us. Letting these Karrnathi troublemakers into our borders serves our ultimate goals, though I’ll forgive you for not being able to see how. There are many a cog turning right now and it won’t be long before we will have our opportunity to rival the very barony for influence and power within the House. To matters closer at hand; We will need another fall man for the Aurala business – it needs to be someone believable, too … someone with a history of voicing unpopular political opinions. I suggest forming a shortlist now so we are ready when the time comes.
I mean… I guess I don’t see any harm… I should warn you, though – you’ll want to get in and get out – It’s hard to explain, but you could easily lose days otherwise. Or gain days. Thinking about it makes my head hurt. Just be quick, ok?
