Inos Moon 42 Orian System Near Tombs of Orian Approaching Nachzerer Landing Site
Lan Orsalan hadnât seen anything, weather-wise, like what he currently trudged through on the far-flung moon that lazily orbited at the periphery of the Sadowan holdings. One moment, all was calm, the air still and coldly comforting as it filled his laboring lungs; the next, his face felt as it would be scoured off of his skull, so sharp were the ice-crystals that the wind blasted unmercifully into his path. Sharply-angled pieces of permafrost threatened to pierce his booted soles, and his eyes struggled to focus on the handheld tracking deviceâs display, but Lan pressed on, lest he face the wrath of the one who followed him, and whoâs tolerance for failure was negligible, at best.
As if summoned by his fleeting thought, the rich-baritone that belonged to his Master floated, unhindered by the howling winds, to his ear. âThatâs enough, Lan; make for the ridge ahead, and weâll stop so you can catch your breath, boy.â
âYe..yesâ¦Mas..Master.â The cold and wind threatened to choke the response from his frost-touched lips, but he soldiered on anyway. The man at his back would expect no less. What heâd learned in the months since being accepted as an Apprentice was that, for every offered kindness, there was the unspoken promise of an exacted payment. Lanâs Master was a hard, but fair, man, and it seemed the Protectorâs workload increased the more focused he was on a particular task. Such was the cost of being apprenticed to Naga Sadowâs Quaestor, and as both men reached the aforementioned ridge and peered over its edge, Lan suspected that he might have to pay with his very life by the time his Master saw this latest crisis through to its end. Besides, Lan thought without the slightest trace of irony, thatâs how these sorts of things worked with the man with the tripartite gaze: a Life for a Lifeâ¦and Tsainetomo Keibatsu Sadow was charged with finding the one whoâd killed one of his own.
Greetings! This marks my first report as Quaestor and I have to tell you that I couldnât be more proud, and humbled, by this singular honor. You folks are more influential than you realize and to have been named your leader is something I will not take lightly. I firmly believe that with the group of folks we have runninâ âround, we are at the cusp of a new era in Sadowan Historyâ¦and Iâll be right there beside you guys, writing it every day.
For those of you who donât know me, Iâm known as Tsainetomo Keibatsu Sadow, aka âafrojediâ, and Iâve been kicking around here fairly consistently for the past 4 years. Iâve had the good fortune of having some great people bring me up, and the opportunity to learn from otherâs mistakes. Now, Iâve been given the chance to apply my knowledge and willingness to learn towards the ultimate goal of Sadowan greatness, and Iâm more than confident that we can get the job done. I have an open-door policy, so if you have any questions, comments, snide remarks or recipe ideas, get@me!
If youâve been keeping your eyes on the main news page, youâll note that thereâs a GM Report thatâs been posted with some great info regarding the upcoming GJWâ¦and that thereâs a Tri-House Feud in the works betwixt us, Taldryan and Tarentum. Iâm especially excited about this project as it will expose you guys to two other Houses, and theyâll get to see what you guys can do. They say that âSteel sharpens Steelâ, so if all goes as I think it will, weâll have two other Houses that weâll really need to watch out for come War-time! ;)
One-hundred and forty-one. Thatâs how many Seals you guys earned in the Vendetta, and each one was well-earned. Outstanding effort, my Belovedsâ¦the Novae and Promoâs are to follow, so keep your eyes open for those, please anâ thankee!
Further, the Summit and some trusted advisors have been diligently re-working some of the perks that make our House unique, so as to give you Journeymen among us more ownership in this, our home, and a louder âvoiceâ in influencing our direction: the Prefects and the Black Guard! Details on those projects will be forthcoming, so get ready to earn your place among the Sadowan elite!
Also, now that the Vendetta is, for all intents and purposes, wrapped up, be sure to go back to the âUnrest In The Cityâ House Run-On. Some interesting things are afoot, as alluded to in my intro, and if you havenât made an appearance as yet, there are plenty of things happening, or about to happen, in our liâl corner of the DB-verseâ¦so get stuck in!!
