Local Date: Day One
I love it here! It’s weird, like I’ve finally come home. The people in Shadow Proper have been so wonderful, welcoming and so intelligent. There is so much to learn here that I feel like I’ll never have enough time to explore. I’ve rented a room with a great view of the plaza and I’m hoping to make this a more permanent base. It’ll be nice to have somewhere that’s home.
There have been some troubling rumors in the markets, though, about the Empire coming here. These people have lived through enough war and death for lifetimes and are just starting to rebuild their own place. If I can help them keep their freedom and build some kind of peace, I’ll do anything I can.
Local Date: Day Seven
Finally, I am here. I’m glad I have some good news for the people hiding out here. The stream of refugees trying to escape New Sandrith is intimidating, but better to get them out than leave them for the Empire to squish. The Empire. HAH. These conquest-driven limpwits wouldn’t know a decently run empire if it taxed them. They may know how to bully a population, but they can’t foster the things that are important. They’re spreading themselves too thin and stepping on too many people to maintain their grip and that’s only going to get worse.
Especially if I have anything to say about it.
I need to coordinate with the defense forces. I know I can do some good here and I can hardly wait to get started. This is the kind of thing I live for.
Hachiman bless my swords!
