Of Daggers and Dreams - Season Two: Xen'Drik
Professor Damian Jakobi, The University of Wynarn - Chronicle of House Tharashk Expedition, 999 YK
An academic chronicle compiled by Professor Damian Jakobi of The University of Wynarn, Fairhaven, Aundair, in the Year of King Galifar 999, regarding the House Tharashk expedition into Xen’Drik to recover the fabled Orb of Merrix and return it to Khorvaire.
Author’s Note: It belongs in a museum
The political tension surrounding this endeavour is sickening. The grudges and enmities held by political bodies have forever been a hindrance to scholarly pursuits, and the dragonmarked houses of Khorvaire are no different. House Tharashk has sponsored this expedition and set Hardan D’Tharash, formerly of the Aundairean Dragoons, at its head. A Deneith Blademark under contract has also joined the party, and I foresee…complications. This, however, remains to be seen.
For those of a disposition to pay heed to the world’s seasonal inclination, it is mid-spring. We have just entered Eyre, the Month of Making. It is here, as it is everywhere, a period of wondrous new creation in the natural world as the land comes back to life. And here we are in the midst of that new life, chasing a Cannith artifact. Curious.
