Episode 1.05 - Character Journal - Corrie

Dear Diary,

Whew, these overland journeys will be the death of me. So much eerie business in this waste -- a bit c'est trop. Not too thrilled with this fellow, B. I'd hate to think of owing a favor to that bastard. Asking us to take a child? Nasty business!

Terribly pleased to see the Company forming up a bit better. Really must look into getting a decent kit for entertaining. I felt a bit caught out at the Jarl's hall with just my traveling clothes. Dashed difficult to get any decent whispers when you look like the kitchen help. I might try to pick up a few techniques from these mountain lads. We seem to get in the stew rather more than is sensible. And I'll bet that won't slack up much with them and "their honor" breezing around the place with us. Phwoar, they sure know how to take a hit though. Or maybe Mercutio could train me up a bit. I think quicker dodging might be more my thing, really.

Well, better turn in. Ought to be rested up for Tribute!

I hope this letter finds you well. I haven't spoken to you in so long, and I know it's my fault for leaving so abruptly. Come to think of it, I haven't heard from Kaden in a while... has he been in touch with you? If you were interested, I have been busy setting up a trading business, which is going well. That is part of the reason I am contacting you now, it has been a long time since I have been home and the route I'm on now will take me to Tribute. I thought maybe we could catch up, since it has been so long. I will stop by when I get into the city.

I hope to see you soon.

Episode 1.04 - Character Journal - Hinrik

A letter sent via multiple anonymous channels to Simon Neville
To whom it may concern,
I’ve recently come into possession of some interesting reading material from south of the border.  Interestingly enough some of it quite prominently features a notable rapscallion by the name of Simon Neville.
It seems Master Neville has plans of improving his family's holdings in Restport by gambling that his homeland will be invaded by it’s southern enemy.  Of course he hedged his bet by selling sensitive information to the enemy.
A thought occurred to me while reading this fascinating account of treason; who should I share this with?  I certainly considered letting everyone know - perhaps by commissioning an article in the Restport Herald.  I then thought, well no, that may be an excessive reaction to something that could perhaps be a misunderstanding.  I then considered letting a select few know, perhaps Earl Oswald Locklight or Duke Esmond Fullspring for example.
But then I thought, that I should really give Simon the opportunity to right his wrongs.  To that end how do you suppose he could repent for his deeds?  I suspect an excellent first step would be to donate his undeserved income to a true patriot.  How do you suppose Simon would take that?
Any recommendation on how best to proceed would be most appreciated.
A concerned patriot.

Jerrod –

I received your letter and parcel that needs to be delivered, we are on the move now. It seems like we have a lot to move this trip, I am looking forward to our load being lighter on our way back. On a more important note, I have a suspicion of who the mole might be. I don't want to say too much, but I plan on looking into this more on my own. I will let you know what I uncover in Tribute.
