Sometimes, the answers are obvious. Not everything is a puzzle or a purpose. Some things are exactly as they seem, no overthinking required.

I ought to keep this in mind.

A new age of Paladins is upon us. Stand forth and answer the call to arms, or do not. Either way, choose.

It seems there is little time left before a large confrontation with our enemy. No time for all the grand dreams, for the great castles once again to protect us, for the age of Paladins to return fully, to have trained Paladins leading and guiding the Templars into those places they must go. But Gloria's command is not to protect when it is convenient, or protect when you are ready. Honour does not have such flexibility, duty does not offer such choice. So we go with what we have, and pray it is enough. If it is not, then we still go. Because that is what is right.

We bow our head before battle, and we say our prayer. Not for victory. Not for might. Not for numbers or for skill. Our prayer is for the strength of will, the endurance, to carry our honour through to the end. Head unbowed, oaths unbroken. That is how we will return. Home or to the shining lands.

I found myself once again ensnared in the clutches of a waking nightmare, yet the setting had shifted like sand beneath my feet. Instead of the foreboding streets of Luciva, I awoke upon the spring shores of Arx, the moonlit waves caressing the shoreline in rhythmic whispers. I stood barefoot in a delicate nightgown, the cool embrace of the sea sending shivers through my being.

The air was filled with a sense of surreal tranquility, a stark contrast to the chaos of the previous dream. As I gazed at the calm waters, I could almost hear the gentle lullaby sung by the ocean, a deceptive serenity masking the mysteries that lurked beneath the surface.

Yet, the nightmare persisted. The waters, though seemingly serene, carried an undercurrent of unease. With each step along the shore, the temperature of the sea intensified, the once-refreshing chill turning into an icy grip that sent shivers up my spine. It was as if the sea itself harbored a secret, a malevolence hidden beneath its seemingly placid surface.

In the distance, the outline of the Pravus fleet emerged from the shadows, their sails billowing in the moonlit night.

My nightgown billowed around me like a ghostly veil, and the cold waters whispered secrets that remained just beyond the grasp of understanding.
The sand beneath my feet felt like quicksand, each step a struggle...

To wake up falling upon the sands of Arx...

I need answers to why these hooded men find me in my dreams

I was damn proud of who I was. What I accomplished. For most of my life anyway. I don't know when that stopped being true and I am not really sure what to do about it now.

I miss my family but I don't miss the isles. EXCEPT when someone wrongs me or or a friend. At least there I know exactly how to deal with it.

Dearest Diary,

I have thought of the storm.

I have considered the flame.

But, what of the shadows?

There are so many that fear them, for reasons beyond me.

They come to fear even their own, just as surely as their (oft unflattering) reflection.

But, the shadows are not nefarious things -- they are a comfort in the scorching, parching noon of summer, where we find our gentle rest and easy breezes.

There are flowers that bloom only within their soothing embrace, stretching long and as deep as the storm-tossed sea.


I rather like the dark.

Like a bleak horizon, it is where my radiance can best be seen.

Dear Diary,

As I look out over the bay, I find my mind wandering to the storm.

Perhaps, more specifically, I think of how we choose to describe it, and its influence:

It rages.

We never stop to ask, "Is it justified?"

It rages, but we care not why -- we view it only as a destructive thing, much the same as an inferno, which also ... rages.

But, what is rage if not simply another face of passion?

What if the storm mourns, what if it lashes out the way that it does because though we hear its furious, thundrous call ... we do not -listen-?

What if we have, without our knowledge, stolen something precious from it ... and without our answer, no matter how many times it would ask that we return what was rightfully theirs, it could only grow louder?

Dear Diary,

Have you ever sat and watched a candle burn until -- with a gentle hiss, and a twist of smoke -- it is gone?

Melted away, spent, with not a moment spent mourning its tragic passing?

The flame dances for our entertainment, seductive as flame is to our minds.

We are but moths, lured closer with every lash and flicker ... even the words we use to describe it as it devours all are indicative of our wanting.

It isn't the limbs of flame, but tongues...

I wonder, darling diary ... what does it say to you?

Spring is here. Which next to summer, is my favorite. I enjoy the new growth. The feel of new. The gardens at Wyvernheart, mine included, are beginning to bloom, and I'm excited to work with them this year. My children should be back soon, and I'll be able to teach them the meanings and use of everything there.

We've managed to open the doors of the Academy of Occult Sciences in Nilanza and accept our first set of students. It's been a challenging process. The eagerness some prospective students show has been concerning, and not everyone has taken rejection well. Still, it's a solid beginning, good progress toward facing the unknown with curiosity rather than fear.

There's yet a great deal of work to be done in the coming months, but I trust in my family, our people and our allies. It is my sincerest hope that the Academy is thriving by this time next year, our processes streamlined and our halls filled with good people looking to conduct worthwhile work.

Went home covered in paint. There was pink footsteps all around the house. And I know usually I'd have said something, thinking it was one of my kids. Or chaotic dogs. But today was not the day. It was me. I was the person. I brought the pink footprints. Good thing Drake wasn't here to see that, I'd never hear the end of it.

So it seems I might be fit to be an Explorer, although I might have to learn to ride, first, which isn't ideal. I might have to ask the Princess for membership in her organisation, now that I have some time to spare.

A new start, Scholar, following an end. Such things are appropriate, and yet what will this new life bring? Joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain - the proportions may be different, but the wages of life are the same.

News from back home is mostly good. I know that people are afraid, I know that people are rightfully concerned, but I am so proud of the people of Saikland for letting cooler heads prevail in the face of overwhelming circumstances. I know all too well how sudden revelations can unbalance you. Make you question everyone and everything you thought you knew, thought you could trust. Our hearts and our minds are both so strong and so soft - the two are not exclusive. We can and will overcome the challenges we face.

I endeavor to always remain worthy of the trust my people place in me. It is precious.
