Above laid extracts of pigment on cigarette parchment, the writing fast- shown the words were being spoken at the same time (ignore the actions, obvs, as i was behind a wall and that would be meta)

Aellen,

These were men, to our women; who had to choose between being captured and having their families punished for being merely at the wrong place at the wrong time; or give petty pieces of information to Calendale nobodies.


These were men, who took it upon themselves- who some how retrieved access to doors without working in our forces; who stripped these women, mocked them- and if you could so hear the cries of innocence and the clanking of torturous mechanisms; your mind would only pollute you with the foulest of punishments. The confessions the women were, and i must emphasize, forced to make, were false, rather pleas to cease their assault. Eilua Esapa, has not, has never, slept with anyone, I had to treat the child after an assault made upon them by the people she was enforced to do this by, and the only crime she committed was giving someone keys to my tavern.- Kali, has a lovely wife, and aimed to seduce no one. These claims were made from, as you may read above, their own perverse fantasies with the women.

'The amount she led into Calendale hands numbers in the dozens.' Was a quote never mentioned, as i was there, behind a thin wall in my Casino, when the interrogation occurred, Eilua Esapa has not encroached Calendale for 2 years, as she has had to do extra tavern shifts to off-pay an extensive debt to myself- she has worked several hours a day, and i ensure she doesnt tend to depart the tavern. She has gained no money from the event, as all her money comes to me to off-pay her loans. Her money is directly from tavern-work, and tavern-work alone.

These are men, who, have become so enticed with petty losses, that we have endulged in petty, cowardly victories- only one of what sounded to be a group of men had his senses, and pitied them, even tried to subdue their bloodlust. The men who are entasked with protecting us women were too hungered by the sensation of torture- Aellen, have we so lost our minds as to allow women who are defenseless to be strung up and tortured, leered at? for the mere amusement of not even a guard, a random, murderous individual who somehow gained keys.

I think we deserve some answers, if we are to call Calendale so low, then what is this? We cannot speak down to the Umri if this is happening, to they eyes of many- is this not treason to so torture the men you are to care for? are we not sinners?


I come back to my old letter, the responses of love, of courage- and yet i look upon the soils where i write and forsee nothing but shame, cowardice. The recurring images of falling brick is all i can see in a place i so love, when we have become so vile.

We are a bell-curve, yet, we are also capable of working through this. When we see this, need not think of abandoning the nation, but a reason to upkeep the fight- are we not ashamed of cowards like this who forsake women? are we not sick of needing to take any win, no matter how disgusting?

The Azure Keep- answer to us why women were tortured, when we have seen this type of crime before? can we not use minuet investigatory skills? or will we just turn into a memory in hatred. Tell us why you chose bloodshed over heart, tell us who these men are to not even fight for us, but to torture us?

You have at least, if anything, given us a new low to step above- The people should not have to pay for the cowardice of its foreseers.

In love, or reluctance, we shall move forward with heart, if not suicidal ambition,

'Cain'

Below was pinned an old missive, a letter written in the same fashion of what these women were tortured for
Sallare Mimir's Letter

"What a sad state Aellen has become, dwarven mercenaries and desperate zepadi form their ranks, is it even an elven nation anymore? And now this. I wonder if it can get any worse." The Emissary muttered to himself within the sanctity of his grove.

On the Vetrii's desk came the missive. He began to cross-reference some other written reports.

"Cain. Female. Dwarf. Freed multiple Calendale soldiers, used their guard status to avoid and circumvent punishment, and involved in the plot to kill the Archon for their own political power. Interesting how they were able to hear through many, many layers of stone. A casino, really? That was the best excuse she thought of? Eugh, it's necromancy, surely. A crime against the Wiccan religion, most likely. Most likely also irrelevant. Their faith seems flexible in times of convenience. A potential victory in every syllable..."

And then the missive was shuffled away, and the Vetrii man got a new bundle of documents relating to a particular assassination attempt. Tsk tsk. He'd have to make sure to remind himself to handle that pesky woman. Busy busy, though....

Siara on her way home would saw and read this paper. She would not pay attention to it and continue on her way. However, as she saw her mother, Park Klare Lux, tears would start to drop from her eyes as she said "Mom, this city is doomed..."

The next day, she would then quickly drop by the military district and place the following letter on its barracks door. The letter itself is being held by a rock.

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

I, Siara Lux, one of your initiates and once your loyal soldier, quit!
The army and the council itself is corrupt!
Kidnapping children?
Arresting citizens who were suspected of treason with nothing but /fabricated/ evidences?

Cain might be a witch but her execution was unjust and should have undergone proper investigations! Furthermore, these new soldiers that you have accepted into our ranks... they are nothing but dirty pigs! Dirty pigs who want to lay their seed in our pure blood! I, myself, is a victim of such harassment!

I feel petty for those who are loyal and wish for the best of this kingdom... their hopes are nothing but these true traitors!

Aaron read one of the missives being posted on the Aellen notice board, he gave it a small sigh...
"Is this really what we have become? Kidnappers? Murderers?"
He contemplated moving back to Hazduun, there are no politics... no war... no conflict there. Plus, his family would probably welcome him right in.
"Aellen isn't the same city as before..."
He stated, before heading towards his house. He felt like a hypocrite, but he has helped enough, and he is not going to fight for a nation that murders and kidnaps.
"It'll be a small visit, just until things calm down... or I return to Aellen to pick up its dust."

Eilua Esapa would have a sigh in relief, reading the letter smiling knowing that such justice will be served letting out a simple laugh before heading back to whatever she was doing
