Correspondence / Re: Letter for Ser Adrian Velstra, Velstra Vale
« on: January 17, 2022, 06:25:03 AM »
Had it worked, I would've given you your heart's desire.

But you know my position as it stands.

All I will tell you is that a long journey will await you once you know where to go. My directions will only be the beginning.

What a remarkable and generous offer.

Come to the Velstra Vale as soon as is convenient. I should like to discuss the matter with you personally.

If you don't have a reward in mind, I am sure we could arrange something.

At the end of that fight, Kinsley, no one was left standing except myself and Sverri. Only one self-sacrificial Moonspear (who had rejected my protection and mercy) was dead on the ground; two other Moonspears survived the moment, and we stepped past them to rescue Ser Lyon and a dozen more so that they might survive the night.

I've had worse outcomes. Haven't you?

It is presently improper for me to marry a commoner. Nor am I looking for a fling.

We can speak on this matter again in the future should you go on to be knighted, otherwise be enfeoffed with a title of aristocratic standing within the Peerage, or earn a boon from Lord Velstra with a feat of legend.

Miss Greylocke,

Murder is artless. It is a failure, not a victory. It is a terrible thing that we can never take back. It leaves nothing behind but empty streets, desolate neighborhoods, and hearts full of regret.

If you think me responsible for all the deaths that might result from refusing to end a life, so too must I be responsible for everyone who would die if I did act. And people always do when we get blood on our hands. There will always be someone who wants revenge. A relative. An authority. A vigilante. An angry god. Some way, some how, there is always a reckoning. I've seen it happen hundreds of times to thousands of misguided souls.

I am not a pacifist. I am not a dreamer. Sometimes there are no good options, and sometimes emotion conquers sense.

But I do my best for as many people as I can.

And so should you.

A.V.

Matchmaker,

I am Ser Adrian Velstra. Male. Twenty-seven candles,   Apple close to the tree. High income. Heir to House Velstra.

With the fateful death, undeath, and/or redeath of all prior romantic entanglements, I am once more looking for a match. This arrangement is a question of significant danger as, ever, one of my hundreds of enemies will try to bring about their swift demise before they can ascend as a Velstra. Although I have my eye on a woman of fierce character already, I believe she would be miserable in the Vale, and thus would like to consider a breadth of options.

  • Serious applicants only.
  • Must not be an assassin.
  • Nobility by blood, merit, or title strongly preferred.
  • Must last at least two weeks of courtship without being kidnapped or murdered.
  • Special consideration given to candidates who assassinate Xiv the Assassin before he assassinates them first.
  • Must not be an assassin.
  • Style highly encouraged.
I hope to hear from you soon.

Marion the Minstrel.

The birds themselves have been singing your songs beside my Lord's window.

We are much amused.

You are formally invited to throw the party of a lifetime at the Blacke Velvet Casino. You are to organize, promote, and host the event. You are encouraged to rally your companions, hire employees,  call on friends new or old, and whatever else serves this end. You are instructed to perform no fewer than three songs composed by your hand, and that the last song of the night should be a new piece dedicated to House Velstra or a figure of your choice within it (noting wisely that few of my brothers share our Lord Velstra's generous sense of humor).

Once this is done, you shall be owed a favor commensurate to the extravagance of the party and the turnout of the guests. The more you bring to our casino, the merrier we shall be, and the more you shall have the right to ask for.

An unimaginative man might ask for money or treasure. An ambitious man might seek privileges or honors. But you? An artist? I should hope to be as enchanted by your choice of payment as I am by your music.

The choice would be yours, all the same.

Respectfully,
Ser Adrian Velstra

Quote from: City Sending by Ser Adrian Velstra
A bounty is placed upon the life of the assassin known as Xiv. Whomsoever ends him and brings his remains before the Velstras shall be awarded a special favor; an arrangement, a project, a decree, or perhaps a unique artifact for men of unimaginative greed.

Xiv is known to an elusive killer. Hunters are warned that you are unlikely to see him before he sees you. And that a single blow from him, launched from the darkness, can crush your spine and lay you smote across the alleys.

Quote from: City Sending by Grand Vizier Sardistan
People of the City of Rings!

Adrian Winespill, called 'Ser' by some without merit, is hereby declared in act of rebellion against the one true King. He and his cronies, financed in large part by degraced coatwrack Jodfry a'Valar, are worthy of death. The one who destroys and slays these traitors shall receive a LARGE reward.

They shall be welcomed into the ranks of the Count's own RUBIES ...

Any who associate with Adrian Winespill are deemed traitor. Any who dare give him even a morsel of food while he is starving are deemed traitor. He and his motley band of renegades shall be crushed beneath the all-knowing and all-mighty boot of the Count Senuspur.

I'm all for killing vampires. This self-proclaimed "Prince" has done unspeakable wrongs to unspeakably many.

But we both know that we don't have the shackles to hold the witch we say we're here for. And I'm far from thrilled that the comitals are here with us. Even if we survive the depraved games ahead of us, our great achievement will be ushering the Drill on to the next Ring; a bitterness that, I promise you, won't easily rinse from our mouths.

What is this yellow mist? Why did the Pallid Prince pull out of the King's domain? Whose hands are at work here?

How did we let ourselves be pawns? Where else is this game going?

Phelan needs our help as much we need his.

And even if we did manage to bring back the Count's creature, what, are we going to stand by and wait for her to murder him?
