My life in the Lost Lands has not been what I had hoped it would be. How
could it have been? The promises of the Agent were clearly oversold. I
could kick myself for buying into his flowery language; but what were my
Slaving away on the wharfs in Tol Rhun for barely enough riln to buy a

to death upon my arrival if it had not been for her generosity. I truly
do hope to make it up to her one day.
As for now, however, I have learned of a library to the East where I may
be able to begin to study the arts that the old gods bequeathed to my pe-

from me. I need a plan, and to skimp until I can afford the journey, not
to speak anything of the fees which my studies will incur.
