An inscription upon the parchment of a courier: We have recently learned of an invasion force entering into Qaiyore through the northern coast. This invasion force may attempt maneuvers against our island and the brethren. I, your prince and protector appointed by Kel'ren'aie, do hereby urge and command us: Prepare for this Hostile Force. Work extra this year in our fields, store up supplies for a long and arduous siege war. The Garrison shall have rotating furlough to return to our fields and prepare for our Ordeal. Pray to Kel'ren'aie protection, strength, honour. Warriors, be ever vigilant.

Some Laria'rathi priests have received an invitation to co-sponsor, with the priests of Celpalar, a symposium for religious education. Preparations are begun by Kel'ren'aie priests with the coordination of Celpalar. Doctrinal differences will be prayed through by every party involved, hopefully a conclusion will be uncovered (but not a compromise, unless found to be right). Held in Celpalar, this will allow a (hopefully) peaceful exchange of religious doctrine and practice, without pressure for either religions' followers to be converted by the other. Violent arguments shall not be permitted.

"Some of our people have been having terrifyingly fearful dreams. The ruins here must have some connection to the vast amount of fear generated by these dreams. These ruins must be explored further to find any reason or presence causing these nightmares. As you are well aware, we were not able to have Kel'ren'aie guard this place. We need to find the cause of this or relocate to another island. We cannot have these troubling thoughts among our people." "Yes, m'lord, I shall lead a volunteer force. We shall do our best for our people, protecting them. We shall try to uncover information of the race previously dwelling here. Perhaps they have a library intact or some other documents, relics or anything else of value we are able to find." "Kel'ren'aie be with you." "Kel'ren'aie be with you."
