Correspondence / [Bundled package delivered to Branwen O'Adair]
« on: September 27, 2021, 07:26:08 PM »
Dear Branwen O'Adair,

Please find enclosed my initial draft of the requested documentation. I have ignored the placement of debris that will be removed.

Owing to the shifting geography of the City, I've abstracted to map to its relevant points of interest and directions.

Presently, your account is at 85 groats and two charges of invisibility (80) for a total of 165 groats. I therefore consider you fully paid for these six hours of skilled labour.

I'll be happy to revise the documentation if you have any special requests. Please let me know if this meets your requirements, or if I've missed something vital; if so, I will revise it at my own cost.

Best regards,

Oliver Klitch

[A second document is included:]


1. The Employer (Branwen O'Adair) employees the Subcontractor (Oliver Klitch) for the purposes of measuring and mapping the Mongrelwoods region underseen by House Orza and the Raven Guard (hereby referred to as Raven Guard Lodge.) Measured proportions and immovable obstacles will be included. A path from Oakrest Square to Raven Guard Lodge will also be included.

2. The agreed rate of pay will be 25 groats per hour of skilled labour, with the material cost of products included therein.

3. Revisions may be added at the request of the Employer at the standard rate. Inaccuracies will be corrected at the Subcontractor's cost.

Oliver Klitch

[Three whispers...] Excellent. Hello, I am Oliver Klitch, professor errant of the NLUA.
Don't worry about that. I have an offer to make for an enterprising
young go-getter with an interest in dice games, gambling, and profits.
I'll be auctioning off the rules to a game from my homeland.

Yes; just the rules. I'll teach you how to play, run you through a few games,
and then it will be yours to exploit at your leisure. Will it be the next 'big thing'?
Not what you should be asking: Can YOU -make- it the next big thing?

Offers will be received in the post for the next, erm...
Well, let's say until the sun is at this same point tomorrow.
Write to Oliver Klitch, or O.K., at the New Glum.
I'll be donating to the institution for this service.
Thank you and please continue your day.

To: Dean Emerson Learner, New Luiren University of the Arts
Yondall, New Luiren, Stout Confederacy

Dear Emerson,

I hope this letter finds you in good health, and that you are sitting down. What I have to tell you is nothing short of incredible. Circumstance presently finds me seated in a rooftop bar, overlooking a sprawling metropolis, populated almost entirely with living Humans. Thousands - possibly tens of thousands - of Humans, male and female, organized into noble houses and professional guilds. This city, both nameless and superstitious, contains enough living, breathing Humanity to spend a lifetime in the pursuit of Anthropology.

I've already committed more than half of my life to the defense of the freedoms and values of our Confederacy. As you knew when I came to work with you, my heart has always been in the field, over the hills and far away. This is a practicum that I cannot turn down, even though I did not choose it. There are manifold dangers; the xenophobic culture, patrilineal feudalism, and mercenary lawmen come to mind. All the same, I'm light for the challenge.

I am writing to formally declare that I am taking indefinite leave for field research into this Human City. As soon as I am able, I will reestablish contact in order to facilitate the disclosure of this research to the University. Transtemporal best practice will be followed when/if applicable to reduce Astral Friction. I'm sorry Emerson; that the best I can do. I don't know how I wound up here, where or when I am, or how to get back. I need to eat, and that means I need to work.

This couldn't have happened to a better charlie. The metaverse provides, right? Don't worry about me. We've all got to go sometime. I'm truly fortunate to have found a place even more exciting than any Heaven I could have imagined.

Keep them on their toes.

Finally! A male!

A little flimsy, but it will have to do, Dear; I'm fresh out of ideas-'s this or Nothing, hahahahahaha!

There you go. Took you long enough. That's all, huh. What a pathetic little bud. You'll never please her with a catkin like that.

Hush, Dear. He's no good to us if he can't stand on his own.

If you want him fed, you feed him.

It isn't growing fast enough. I can't...wait forever. Dear, forget It-...

Forget Him, then; you're so sentimental, Dear. Come, look at these birds I've combined; their fitness cannot *cough* be denied!...

-ke a minotaur of our own, Dear; all I need is is is, uhhh, a bull and a pig, and time...

What?! It's hardly- *cough* It can't root, it's good for nothing but trimming my hedges. Would that it could just trim itself and save some Bannerman the trouble.

Now, to find a bull...

This is all your fault. You should have warned us.

You made us weak, and soon you'll be gone too.

You get what you deserve.

Ten Goat Herding Mantras
by Granny Autumnleaf

M . . L . K K .

In the foothills of the City, I endlessly push aside the stone lizards in search of the Goat. Following unnamed canals, lost upon the paths of Silverspike, my spells failing and my potions exhausted, I cannot find the Goat.

Along the riverbank under the peak, I discover hoofprints. Even under the fragrant grass, I see her prints. Deep in remote mountains they are found. These traces can no more be hidden than one's potions, ready on the belt.

I hear the song of the rumbling mountain. The sun is bare, the wind is mild, willows are green below the vista - Here, no Goat can hide. What illusionist could mock that massive belch; those majestic horns?

I seize her in a terrific struggle. Her great will and power are inexhaustible. She charges to the high plateau, far above the cloud-mists, or in an ancient swamp she mires me.

The keg and bottle are necessary. Else she might stray off down some Ringroad. Being well-trained, she becomes naturally gentle. Then, unfettered, she obeys her mistress.

Mounting the Goat, slowly I return Pondward. The voice of my panpipe intones through the evening. Measuring with heartbeats the pulsating harmony, I direct the endless rhythm. Whoever hears this melody will join me.

Astride the Goat, I reach home. I am placid. The Goat, too, can rest. The Promise has been kept. In blissful repose, within my Cabin, I have abandoned the keg and potions.

Keg, potion, Pondsfolk, Goat; all merge in the Cynosure of Auld Ashe. This trunk is so vast, no axe can scar it. How may a fire exist in a weeping Willow? Here are the hoofprints of the ancients.

Too many gates have been crossed returing to the roots and the source. Better to have been poor Pondscum from birth. Keeping one's own glade, unconcerned within and without; the canal flows tranquilly on, and the host is scarlet.

Whitemaned and naked of mask, I mingle with the people of the City. My leathers are ragged and dust-laden, and I am ever blissful. I use no magic to change my shape; now, before me, the still trees become alive.

NPCs that buy fish should pay by the pound instead of a flat 5gp. This would support the player economy/roleplaying by encouraging fisherfolk to bring friends with room in their inventories.

Porry Naughton should be able to buy fish, and should sell bait bundles (with accompanying Appraise check). This would just bring the Ponds up to par with Ticker and the Burgage in fishing support.

+EfUSS Fishing items in the Hero loot tables, so I can hear the cries of other players' disappointment.

Granny Autumnleaf Memorial League Tournament.

In honour of my grandmother, who was eaten by a big fish,
The first Tournament of the Scarlet Host Fishing League begins today!
A week of terrifying sport awaits you.

Sign up with regional League Offices at the Hag's Bag or Bronzebuckle Manor!
Submit the smallest fish of 3 different species, plus a story or rhyme about one of them!
Then, submit them to League Officials, who will weigh and record your catches!
The smallest of each species will be worth 10 points to the fisherfolk who submits it;
9 points for the 2nd smallest, 8 points for the 3rd smallest, and so on.
Your story or rhyme will not be judged for points, but must be submitted to receive points.
At the end of the week, whoever has the most points (out of 30) is the League Champion!
Special prizes are being constructed as we speak to reward the most ambitious angler!

-The Groundskeeper-

//Tournament begins NOW and ends on January 5th, Noon PST.

The Scarlet Host is a big fish that ate my character's grandmother and I'm passing the savings on to you.

If you want to do a lot of fishing and take things easy, be a Fisher.

If you want cover for a Ponds-focused agenda, be an Official.

Here's what I have so far:

The Scarlet Host Fishing League is now recruiting!

Our mission is to secure a safe and prosperous future for the Ponds, by fostering Community Action, Sportsmanship, and Ecological Conservatism.

All fine Fisherfolk of the Ponds deserve to practice their sport or trade in peace!

Through our combined efforts, we will catch the giant fish that ate my grandmother and might eat yours!

We need Officials to organize exhibitions, maintain garden plots for bait, and teach responsible fishing practices.

If you want Gardens growing strong, Fishers growing fat, and Community that lasts, HELP ME CATCH THIS FISH!

Leave a letter with your name at the Groundskeeper Cabin. Exhibitions begin next week.
