I hope you are well. I am writing from lake Calenhed at the moment. We found our Malificar in the catacombs. He was… not what I expected. I will say no more about it. After we captured him he instructed Leanne on how to save the Bann though he insisted arl Eamon was beyond help. Bann Tegon ordered us to the circle of magi. Upon arriveing there I was initially refused entry. By the time I was able to enter I had to search for my companions. It was horrible mother. You know how mages can become possessed? I think that happened to most of the mages there. After our escape through the sacrifice of a very noble mage my companions informed me that or next stop is Amaranthine. I will write to you from there.
I miss you and the others dearly. Please let them know that. I have just returned from the woods near Highever. A ship’s captain (One who apparently knows of and had a great respect for father.) agreed to take us to Orlasis, our next destination, if we helped her earn a boon from Lord Howe. It seems he had the entire Cousland clan murdered. His son was a better man than he though and saved one of them. After a difficult journey through the woods we discovered an abandoned keep and Elissa Cousland morning the lose of her lover. She had slain a number of Packston dogs that Howe had sent to kill the two of them.
After getting her safely out of the woods and sending her to Redcliffe we returned to Amaranthine. We depart soon so I may not be able to write for some time. I miss you Mother. Make sure Kelsie and Rylan are keeping up with their studies. Please Pray for me.
