Admiral Eloc Lortbane,
I hope you are well. May I take this opportunity to thank you again for the wonderful service that your fleet gave to my men. Your transports were precise in their drop offs, your warcraft kept us free from dragons and enemy bombers, and your bombers were accurate. However, to business..
It pains me to write this letter as I sniff the machinations of those bald bastards, our friends, The Theocrats. I have received increasingly insistent letters from, that latrine fodder, The Truth, requesting what our stance is on the Dark Legion Trooper known as, Amber Blade. This is easy to answer: she broke a contract to Therin and is marked as such. She, if caught, will face a military tribunal, which can inflict penalties up to and beyond death.
A more troubling matter is that Lord Robert not only provided refuge for her, but also was deceptive, and subverted due process. I am not without sympathy: to err it to be minotaur. He and his men also saved their being huge casualties during the initial assault on Wha Faan. His adjutant served under my command and did all that I asked. And yet the cogs of Therin grind on.
He is not under my command. Nor was this act under my command. But his act, I am informed by the priests, may Therin bless their hammer blows, deserves to be recorded on, The Gate of Betrayal in Goldenhelm.
But he is an ally. It appears that the grit of politics may yet jam Therin’s gear. Thus I appeal to you. Lord Robert, rightly needs punished under the tenants of Therin. But it needs to be done in a sensitive manner. I am aware that he is a confidant of yours, and so can you suggest something in keeping with Therin’s will and that of our allies?
May lava flow though your veins in battle, and the tenderest of darkness embrace your love,
