Tales of the Adventure
Hywel of the Cruel Seas
From the letters of Hywel of the Cruel Seas:
To her grace, the Queen Dowager Abalone
I have, at your request, recruited a number of useful individuals to accompany your granddaughter and myself south. Aside from Master Colin, I have acquired the services of a woodsman for her skill away from the main thoroughfares, a route we may be more likely to take depending on the state of the roads. Also, I have selected a youth to accompany us. While I fear for his safety and lament his use, he ought to lend legitimacy to our motley group. Given the pressure time has placed on our leaving, I regret not having selected a better accompaniment to your granddaughter, but needs must demand rapid selection. As always, the safety of Cruel Sea blood will be ensured by my own, and these additions will remain under my scrutiny.
In your service,
