Letter to Caedmon from Red Larch (Auril 11th)

My beloved friend, Greetings from Red Larch! I apologize in advance for the brevity of this letter—it grows late and my companions intend to set off at daybreak tomorrow, so I must not oversleep!

Ferryman’s Log, Selected Excerpts (Auril 1222 PC)

9thAuril. Dranseri. I found a local boatman who was willing to guide Mr. Styx’s boat back to the Glade—Tilia, who accompanied me, whispered to me that his fee (25 gold) was exorbitant, but if that ensures that the boat is safely returned to my former master, it is coin well spent.

Ferryman’s Log, Entry #1, 11th Day of Mielikki

Dawn on the river. Everyone’s asleep, except Val, who was gone even before I stirred to check on the boat’s course—an early morning hunting expedition?
