I am writing you this letter because I want to thank you for your book. I want to thank you for your book mainly because without your book I could not spell your name. Without your name I could not write you this letter to thank you for your book. Thank you for your book.

I could not understand everything in your book but I underlined the names and I underlined the words that I heard before and that I think are probably important. I hope it does not insult you that I did this to your book. Let me know if it does and I will try to scrape away the marks I made as carefully as I can.

You helped me and now I want to say that I will help you in case I forgot to say that before. Tell me what you want me to do and I will try to do it. I will try unless I think it is a wrong thing to do. I have a lot of groats now that are mine and you can have them if you want them.

I think I should say that some people think I say things like this because I am simple. No. That is not why.

I also want to say that I am a prospector now and that is the reason why you will probably see me wearing something ugly and strange if you see me again. I will not be wearing it because I think it looks nice and I want you to know that.

Thank you for reading my letter. Thank you for your book. It is a lot of work to write a letter and I think it is a lot more work to write a book.

Dear Maruthas,


Thank you for your letter of thanks. I appreciate the loop of logic that led you to write it. Without your letter of thanks, I would not be able to write back to you. So thank you for your letter.

Please accept the book as my gift to you, which will free you to underline whatever you like and write as many notes as you desire in its margins. Whilst some would decry this activity as defilement, I think it is more akin to personalising a book and adds further character to it, even increasing its value to future readers or oneself as an augmentation of memory or a stimulus for self-reflection. Should you then feel that you no longer require the book (for whatever reason), I would ask you to pass it along to someone who is more newly Awoken than yourself that it might help them find their place in the City.

Maruthas, you are most generous and noble to extend your offer of aid unto me. I think you should use your groats to continue to better defend and improve yourself as you are best able. Perhaps there will come a time where we may aid each other on the field now that you are a planar prospector. Whilst it is of no great need, if you do come upon objects of conjury that are not aligned with the lower planes and especially a reagent known as 'charged powder' these are things I would be interested in for my own work and research. I am confident that with time in your new career you will learn to discern a great many truths about the planes including how to identify the items I have mentioned.

I will issue you just one caution, as you explore the planes and fragments of the cosmos, beware that the time you spend in the various 'seams' of the City will take a toll upon your body and your mind, destabilising, altering, and if permit, even deconstructing you. This phenomenon is known as the 'planar sickness' or 'planes sickness'. I have enclosed with this letter a book authored by my colleague, the good doctor Soppira Hinkley which will help you understand more about this phenomenon so that you may be aware of what it is you delve into. There is no widely known cure yet for this 'planar sickness' but know that its very manifestation is a statement about the condition of our lives here in the City of Rings.

I wish you well in this City of Rings, and do sincerely hope the bed that you have found is one from which you will best achieve the purpose of your life.

Thank you for writing a letter back to me. It is nice to know that you read my letter and it is nice to read your letter and also to have a reason to write another letter. You will not insult me if you do not read any more of my letter but I am about to write more if you want to read it.

You can probably tell that I am not good at writing letters but this is the kind of thing I like to do anyway because of the nice way it feels. That is also why I am going to try to learn to play the harmonica even though I cannot play it yet and probably I will not be able to play it for a long time if I ever learn to play it. If you want to then maybe some time you can hear what it sounds like.

I thought about what we said before about talking about the home we had before this place became our home. I talked to someone about his home but it did not go well I think because I shared too many of my opinions about it. I want to be kind but my opinions about other people sometimes are not things they want to hear.

Now I think it was wrong to share my opinions because his home means a lot to him and he has feelings about it that are still important even though he acts a certain way. Someone else called him an asshole. I did not call him that but I am telling you what someone else said so that you have an idea what I am talking about.

I am not calling anyone an asshole but I think that assholes are also people and they have feelings that are important.

Many people can talk but not many people can listen.

Thank you for your friend's book about planar sickness. I have learned a little about planar sickness because I have had planar sickness a few times and I have seen other people who have it when it is worse. I am interested in it and so far it is my favorite sickness. I have learned not to get sick from most normal things but planar sickness is different and I am excited to learn more about it.

I will look for objects of conjury and charged powder but there are a lot of things to find on the planes and I am still learning what most of them are.

Thank you for reading my letter if you decided to read it or most of it or only some of it. If you read some of it I do not know if you can see this but I hope maybe you skipped the middle part to read this part because I do want to thank you for reading however much of my letter you decided to read.

Dear Maruthas,


It is a joy to read your letters, for I do find your perspective to be incredibly refreshing. So free from the typical biases that define so many of our fellow living beings. I will state also that I have read the entirety of your letter and that it in turn has given me things to respond to.

It is good to know that despite perceiving yourself as not being good at writing letters, you are at least enjoying doing so. Letter writing is merely a way to express yourself or your ideas with the one unto whom you write and so far as that goes, you are doing well indeed. As with most things in life, practice makes perfect though and I would gladly welcome further correspondence from you. Practice is also what will see you master the harmonica. Did you know that it is said that music is food for the soul? It is why I truly appreciate the nourishing works of my friend Annette, she is a performer who specialises in the bel canto - beautiful operatic singing - and although being of the Peerage she might not be someone you can spend a lot of time with, I would encourage you to share a few tunes of your harmonica with her one day. She's going to be a star and she's beginning to twinkle already.

I'm sorry to hear that you had some trouble with that person who acts a certain way. I don't think you should withhold your opinion just because it might go against someone's feelings, especially if it could help improve them. You might find other reasons to withhold your opinion though, which might even include simply not wanting to hurt their feelings. I'm not sure how I feel about that, because I believe the Truth is the highest ideal anyone can subscribe to. Feelings are strange things though, they get in the way of the Truth - but perhaps, and I'm not sure what you think of this, the Truth is not for everyone?

Beware of the phenomenon known as planar sickness though, Maruthas. As curious as it might be to study and experience, it is much like the pursuit of the Art in this world in that it is an eldritch fire that burns those who delve into it unknowingly. I urge caution and I urge you to curb your enthusiasm but of course retain some of that excitement you express that you might come to truly understand it one day and perhaps overcome it and so free yourself from one of the greatest bindings upon us all. I am working on completing my research into the corruption of the eldritch phenomeon of this world - including the planar sickness - and will hopefully be able to share my findings with you soon.

Until then, I wish you continued joy in your new career and life in this new home.

It is funny that you said that practice makes perfect because someone else told me that about the harmonica. I know it is a proverb and probably you know this already but I think it is a funny thing to say because we should all know that nothing makes perfect. Practice will probably make me better at playing the harmonica though.

Thank you for telling me about Annette and about the bel canto. That is something I think I would like to hear. I have had a little trouble in the Peerage but I have also been in worse places.

I want to tell you what I think about what you said about truth but I think that I do not understand what you said about it. The reason is because you wrote the word in a special way with a big T at the beginning of it and that makes me think that maybe you used the word in a special way.

It reminds of the man I told you about before who acts a certain way. He told me something was a planar truth. It is an impolite thing to think but I thought that there is no such special kind of truth as planar truths and that really he said something confusing so that he could say other things he wanted to say. It is possible that I was wrong about this but I still think that I was not. Maybe you know or do not know what I mean but this is how my talk with him went badly.

Sometimes people confuse things on purpose. When people confuse things then they can trick themselves and they can do or believe the things they want to do or believe and not the things they know are right. I talked to someone yesterday who said that anything could be music but if this is true then music is not a very useful word and I now have a good reason not to practice my harmonica anymore. I should say that I have a harmonica now and I have made a song also with words. The words of the song are about the complicated feelings we can have about things like turkeys and mothers.

Maybe you see what I mean about words. I am not saying that is what you are doing but I do not know what you are doing and I cannot say what I think about your thought.

Thank you for your letter and for your wishes.  I hope that you will be well and that maybe I can see you again so I can show you some things that I think might be for conjuring.

Dear Maruthas,


You are right that 'practice makes perfect' is a proverb, one which encourages one to new heights of skill and mastery. As to the statement that nothing makes perfect, that seems like a philosophical standpoint rather than any kind of absolute we should all know and subscribe to. Why do you suggest that we should all know nothing makes perfect, Maruthas?

I found your thoughts upon how people confuse things on purpose to be quite insightful. Conceit is a form of this phenomenon you mention, self-righteousness, another and arguably the quintessential example of it. I can't comment on the 'planar truths' that you discussed with the man you told me about before who acts in a certain way though, since I have no details about what was mentioned. It sounds like the other person had a closed mind and that as you perhaps began to poke holes in his logic, threatening to unravel it before his mind, he chose to protest and silence you that he might hold onto his own version of perhaps corrupted reality. Although, of course, I am merely speculating on how things between you and him could have unfolded.

On the note of the Truth, however, it is the fundamental certainty of all things. It is the result of scouring away all impurity to reveal the essential and underlying actuality of a thing. It is a vast vista that in its entirety is essentially beyond mortal grasp. However, it, as a concept, can be applied on a smaller scale - the truth of a person's motives, the truth of an organism's instincts, the truth behind why and how you or I have Awoken. Regarding my usage of the word in my last letter, I should not have confused you by capitalising the word in the way that I did. Yet that I did and moreover that you noticed and paid heed has opened for us another topic of discussion. In the case of the man who acts in a certain way, your opinions had the potential to expose him to another portion of his own truth, and so in context, my question would reference that, perhaps due to his close-mindedness, he and those like him are simply not worthy of confronting or better realising their own truths.

Whilst not directly related to the folly you mention about destroying the definition of music, there is another phenomenon which I was reminded of by that example. When you repeat a word or phrase for an extended time it loses its meaning as perceived by the listener. This is called semantic satiation, it's quite an oddity that from my old studies into enchantment and illusion was quite entertaining to experiment with. Imagine then simply saying 'music' over and over again until it manifest the phenomenon of semantic satiation upon your listener - now that would be a beautiful little paradox where 'music' literally loses its meaning and so fulfils (for a short period) that naysayer's postulate!

The truth is that the Truth is merely an ideal and as long as you keep that in mind, you shall find that I am not trying to contort or manipulate the meaning of a thing to serve some other purpose.

On a completely unrelated topic, I have heard of some very unwise works that your guild of Planar Prospectors' have been partaking of recently. Things involving some 'Needle' artifact as well as vast works of unravelling reality through chaotic and unwholesome magicks across the City for their own gain. These are troubling developments and if you know anything about them I would request as thorough a report as you can manage.

I will be pursuing my own investigations and this will likely mean that our paths will cross in the future. Until then, I thank you for your letter and wish you wisdom with what is no doubt the turmoil to come upon those of your present profession.

It is nice to get another letter from you. I said what I said about perfection because I wanted to be polite and assume you already know it.

Worrying about perfection is like worrying about the king in the middle of the rings. If you look too far ahead then you will not see what is in front of your face and what you do see will probably be something from your imagination. That is what I think about that.

When I practice playing the harmonica or practice fighting with my fists or practice blowing smoke rings or practice my mental disciplines I always have a goal that I can reach right now. I do not think about perfection because it is something I would have to imagine and it is not something real that is in front of my face like the pen and the parchment in front of my face right now or the man's face I was punching a while ago after he shot an arrow into me or even something like my song which does not have a body but has something like one.

Maybe it is real or maybe it is not. I have a strong feeling that if it is real it is something we will not know when we see it.

I am sorry that I still do not know what you are saying about truth or what it has to do with whether truth is for everyone. It would not be kind to share my thought that you are making something simple into something complicated but I think you would want me to share it anyway so I have just done that.

I do have thoughts and feelings about the idea that all kinds of good things are not for everyone but only for a few people. I think and I feel deep in my bones that it is wrong. It is something I am thinking about more lately and that is why I burned the paper I had to buy for protection when I joined the prospectors.

I left the prospectors because I learned that they are lesser people than I thought they were. I do not know anything that I can tell you but that what they do and what I did with them is wrong and I think they are not the kind of people who will take responsibility for it. I regret that I did not understand it before.

I have no place now except a musical group with a halfling who plays the banjolele and a goblin who will play the drum if we feed him bats. I have a feeling it may not last but I hope it does.

Whatever happens with that group I have learned to trust my own thoughts and feelings. I am beginning to see better what is evil in this place and I feel every day I am closer to punching evil in its face if you understand what I mean.

I hope that is something I will get the chance to do.

Thank you for your wishes and thank you for reading my letter.

Maruthas

Dear Maruthas,


Thank you for sharing your thoughts upon perfection. I think it is quite accurate that focusing on an ideal without realising the steps necessary to reach it is to blindside oneself unintentioanlly to the reality around them. I don't think the ideal should be forgotten just because of that though.

Thank you also for sharing your thought that I may be making something simple into something complicated, you are right that I would want you to share it. In regards to the truth not being for everyone, well my reason for caution is something that you yourself have admitted in our prior exchange: that some things may cause hurt or harm and so it is polite to withhold them. You see, the truth is not a good thing, nor is it a bad or evil thing, it is however a thing which may cause both upliftment or terror in equal parts. This makes the whole issue more complicated, because there is certainty that it may do harm and perhaps the harm it does is greater than the good it might do, and so, perhaps, it is not for everyone if all it does is make them miserable or worse.

Good on you for leaving the Planar Prospectors after realising what they are. You should still be able to explore the planar/seam sickness without being a part of them by visiting the planar fragments in a more measured and healthy way though.

I wish you well with your musical troupe and efforts to find a new place in the City. There is evil everywhere, so I doubt you will find a lack of faces to punch. It might just be a matter of which face offends you the most.

I suppose I should share a few things of myself in the spirit of letter writing as well, before I conclude. I have been distracted from my academic works, as my energies have been put towards the affairs of my demesne, bettering my apprentice and thwarting the faces of evil that pop up here and there. I'm never idle though and I am ever steadily progressing in my studies and upon my pilgrimage - to a place known as the Great Library. In time enough I shall have the rest of my work ready for publication though and I shall make a point of sending a copy your way.

May you be well and carry on, Maruthas.

Thank you for writing another letter. It always makes me happy to see them and to read them even though it takes me a while to do it.

I am sorry that I do not know what you mean about ideals but I know there is a difference between things that are real and things that are not real. If there is no perfect harmonica playing like I think there is probably not then I will be confused when I worry about whether my harmonica playing is perfect or not. Whether there is perfect harmonica playing or not it will not be helpful to worry about it anyway if I do not know what it sounds like.

I do not know if it helps to think of the truth as one thing like that instead of many different things when you are talking about keeping some things to yourself to  be polite. Maybe it does help you but it is not something I have worried about before. The way you write about the truth sometimes makes it look like you think the truth is a person. Is that why you wrote the word with a big T?

I would not say that Food is not for everyone because some foods will make some people sick some of the time. It is true that this happens sometimes but I would still say that food is a good thing because it is something that everyone needs. Some people keep food to themselves like some people keep truth to themselves and let other people starve. Those are evil things to do.

Are you keeping it to yourself so that you can feel like you are better than other people or are you making sure you do not make someone sick? I hope I do not insult you when I say I think this is a better question than whether truth or food is for everyone.

There is evil everywhere but I think it is not really about what offends me the most. It does not bother me to kill things or people that need to be killed but you can probably see the difference between killing the poor man or the monster who hurts other people because of his anger or his hunger and killing the rich man or the king who lets things go on this way because of his greed or because of something even worse. There are probably better or worse faces to punch if you understand what I mean.

Whatever your work is I think I will probably not understand it because I believe you are a wizard. It is kind of you to share it though and if you do then I will try to read it.

Thank you for reading my letter and I hope your work goes well and it is something you can be proud of.

Dear Maruthas,


I hope you are doing well, it’s been some time since I’ve written, though I’ve certainly been meaning to. I am with my companions now, deeper in the Rings. We’re planning to work together on some obstacles that lie in our path towards the deeper places in the City. I can’t say too much about such things except that I am constantly learning as I partake of this journey – we’re learning, I should say, since we’re a team. Though if I am honest, my companions – though I truly appreciate them – are not the type of people I would want to be stuck with if we were the last people in the world. How about you - how has finding a new place or pursuit in the City fared?

From your words about ideals and perfection, it becomes quite clear to me that you are a pragmatist. I do like to consider myself the same, but I am without doubt also an idealist. That is to say, nothing stops one from focusing on what they need to get done whilst also pushing towards a great outcome. Even if that outcome is hazy, one knows the direction towards it and always seeks to better oneself.

I think it is important to know the many different things which comprise the greater whole of a thing. I think it is also important to gaze upon the greater whole as one does so. To see the forest for the trees yet to also know what makes a tree. To see the big picture yet still be able to inspect its finer details. I call fallacy upon the idea that something is only one thing or many things: it is both. I write the Truth with a capital T because it is divine. Like God with a capital G – which I admit is a concept I’ve come upon because of my time in the City. Capital C, because it is the City of Rings – a pronoun – not just a city.

There are many foods which are poisonous, may foods which are toxic, many foods which will upset ones stomach and many foods that will kill one slowly, if not immediately. Sometimes people are allergic to certain types of food too. These are all facets of Food, yet to focus purely upon the idea that all Food is nutritious – which it decidedly is not – is a fallacy. Food can be nutritious, perhaps even is largely so, but to forget that it can and will do harm is folly. I would not advise anyone to go out into the wilds and pluck mushrooms and berries to eat, for example, for both of these things are notorious for being poisonous, even if they are Food. This very idea leads me to a memory of something once said at a Great Feast: ‘You forcefed that sugar intolerant kid a candy cane, you sick [obscenity].’

But who should be the arbiter of Food in a world where Food can cause great harm? I think he who makes their entire life’s purpose about seeking to understand Food and all that it entails (not necessarily by partaking of it) would be a good choice. Then they could disseminate all the best food to the people that they might be freed from hunger and slaked of thirst.

I am decidedly the arbiter, Maruthas. Just as I abide the first and binding oath of the physician’s code in the rare times when my knowledge of life is needed: Primum non nocere. That is to say: first, do no harm. I will not have that sugar intolerant kid fed candy, just because it thinks candy looks and tastes good. Though I do filter this oath through the principles of consensuality and mutuality: sometimes inoculation and exposure is required to uplift someone.

Strange that you doubt you would understand my work because you believe I am a wizard. All my published works are for all people, though I do confess some may be of a great deal more significance to the Magus than anyone else. I shall let you judge for yourself though, when the time comes.

Thank you for your well wishes and thank you for your continued discourse. May your own works sustain you and perhaps bring you ever closer to your own Truth.

I was happy to get another letter from you. It is a nice thing to read them and think about them and the person who wrote them. I also like to write because like you maybe I have many words I like to share. I think not many people like to listen to the things I have to say though and I wonder how different it might be for you.

I am sorry to hear what you have to say about your companions. I have been lonely many times in my life and I hope you are not lonely or if you are that you will not be lonely for very long. All pains can teach us something though.

I think that I am doing well and I have some ideas now for things I might be able to do but I am still not sure about the people I can do those things with and those things will need other people. I have friends I like but I cannot say whether they want to do the kinds of things I want to do which will probably get me into trouble and also killed so I do not blame them. I cannot tell you whether I am a pragmatist or not. I am not completely sure what you are saying about that or how it matters although I hope I do not insult you when I say that.

I do not remember saying that anything was only one thing or many things but it is good to know the better way to talk about it for what you are talking about. Talking about divine Truth whatever that is I think is not very helpful for me when a friend asks me what I think of his pastry he made and it is not really very good. That is not a time I will meditate on Truth but a time I will be thinking about my friend and what my friend needs.

That is not a true story but one that I made up. So far I have enjoyed the food that friends have given me.

Anyway this is why it also is not helpful to wonder about what Food is when I am thinking of giving someone something like a berry to eat. But about food you asked who should be the arbiter of food. I think this is an odd thing to ask if I am honest and I have some more questions that I think are better questions.

Should there be an arbiter of food? Should there be an arbiter of truth? Yes is an answer that is very good for a few people and especially for those people who think they would be very good arbiters. It is less good for many other people. I have a few other questions also.

Would these arbiters be tyrants or good helpers for tyrants? Should tyrants and their helpers be killed? Yes is an answer that tyrants will never want to hear. It would be very helpful for them if they were arbiters of truth or had arbiters of truth who were their helpers and then they may not have to hear it.

It is helpful for the strong and the learned when they can decide what the weak and the unlearned need and when. It is helpful for them whether they know it or whether they believe somehow they are friends to the weak. Some people think they can try and be one of the strong and still be a friend to the weak. I think that they are tricking themselves.

I want to say that I am not trying to be sneaky here. I know that you think of yourself as some kind of friend to the king even though he is not your friend or anyway that you call yourself that way. I have a feeling that you have tricked yourself although I doubt I have any kind of power to make you see things differently. I also think that you do not write for all people. If I had to guess then I would say that you write your books for yourself and I think that is not different from the letters you write to me. I may be wrong about that but I think I am not.

Anyway I am always happy to read and write these letters and I hope you are too. I do not think I will ever mind writing or talking with you more even if we are enemies which I think is possible. When I kill someone like a bandit or a goblin I do not feel bad about it but I always want to do it with compassion if you understand what I mean. It is easy with bandits and goblins but I hope I can do the same if I ever get the chance to kill a king because the truth is that we are all sisters and brothers.

Thank you for reading my letter. I hope that you and your companions will be safe deep in the rings because I know it can be dangerous there. I have made a few trips but I do not know how far I have been or how far you are now. If I do get the chance to see you there I hope I can help you with something you need.
