From: Ruria Hammerfall
I write to you today to send my heartfelt thanks for the generosity of an escort for my latest purchase from Citadel Adbar. As always, the craftsmanship of my brethren is unmatched and the armor itself is magnificent. The additions and enhancements that were added, I’m sure I owe to your continued care for my well-being, so I extend my gratitude for that as well. Rest assured, I will feel more than safe between this and Constance’s protection.
I know that I mentioned that we were clearing a parcel of land that was gifted to us by the church, and it is my intent to build a Dwarven Embassy. After the attack on you and your shield-brothers, I feel that the city of Luskan is no longer safe for our people. I would rest easier knowing that you and any others that travel here have a haven where you are well-guarded. Something we might want to consider is that this particular parcel of land is near the sea, of course, but I’m wary of building a port near Luskan as the Captains of the city would most likely take umbrage.
Perhaps we might consider cutting them some manner of payment, if they allowed us to operate a port system of our own. At least this way they’re garnering their profit, but we maintain some matter of autonomy from the city itself. As you have most likely learned by now, I am a self-reliant woman. I would like the Embassy to be equally as self-sufficient.
While I have your attention, however, I would ask after another matter. The metal samples I sent back to Citadel Adbar after my latest venture, their quality, and if the Citadel feels it is worth putting together an expedition to cross into that other realm to further garner resources from it. However, I feel it only fair to warn you that the creatures there are dangerous, so please be sure that whomever you send is prepared for that.
Dawn approaches and I should be on-hand to help Brother Donovan with the morning mass. As always, I work to bring honor and credit to Citadel Adbar and the light of Lathander to all. May the Morninglord watch over you.
