The Path of The Monk – Entry 1 – Confidential Letter for Alodi Bitterleaf

Posted: July 4, 2011 in Alodi Bitterleaf

Dear Alodi Bitterleaf,

Many years have you protected the people of Adar from the influence of the Quori and the Inspired of Riedra. Your services and sacrifices have been great and we at the House of Lyrandar would like to congratulate you on your recent training in the mountains of the Dragons that have lead to the Path of the Monk. You have made this house and your father proud. However, we regret to inform you that we are pulling you from your position in Adar. In this world, there are many evils in which we must face, and sadly there is a great threat on the rise that needs our immediate attention. We are unsure of the severity of the threat at this moment, but we must take what precautions we can. Therefore, you are requested to report to House Lyrandar in Stormhome on the Continent of Khorvaire where you will receive preparations for the upcoming events and take a ship to the Lands of Xen’drik. Regretfully, we are unable to secure a private ship, so you will be taking a public ship. Because of this, we can’t promise safe passage, and can’t risk sending troops for fear of discovery of our plans. In short, however dangerous this mission may be, you are may be our only hope to investigate what is going on.

As you may know, the continent of Xen’drik has been a passage of right for the last years for adventurers seeking glory and treasures. A number of powers have set up a safe haven in the land known as Stormreach, where you may be able to get any supplies you need while you are there. Once you are there, we will be unable to provide any help as it may prove dangerous to the mission, though we may be able to contact you through one of the Houses there… though any messages received will need to be immediately discarded of. You will be on your own, though I might suggest joining many of the adventurers there whom may be an invaluable asset to the cause, though your reasons for being there must be remain private. Be warned however that you should choose your comrades with caution.

From what we know, Xen’drik is a land formally inhabited by a civilization of Giants whom have fought the Quori in the past. You may be able to get help from them, but once again, be wary. Currently, Giants, Drows, and many other fiends crawl the lands of Xen’drik, so without a doubt, this is a dangerous adventure you will be embarking on. We at House Lyrandar trust you to put a stop to these dark powers at work as you have many times in the past. When you reach Stormreach, we shall have our spies return to us with news of your arrival and shall message you whenever possible. We wish you the best of luck, and we know that you shall do Our House and your father proud. Until we then may the spiritual ancestors of our house, Lyran and Selavash guide you on the correct path.

Baron Esravash d’Lyrandar
Matriarch of House Lyrandar
