A letter for Safina

Postby Littleben » Wed Mar 11, 2015 11:20 pm

A young man, a courier, carrying a letter from Fern Thistle was seen crossing the deserts of Dolen Taleth in search of the Kor tribe. The lands were vast and it was difficult to know exactly where the Kor were, without knowing where the Kor were. However, after long searching, the courier came across the Kor and asked for the presence of Safina in order to deliver his letter. At first the Kor people were hesitant but offered upkeep for this young man. Then the courier mentioned he was in Fern;’s stead, who was a friend of Ishan-bey against the Soul-less and had encountered Safina before as well. The Kor escorted him to Shah Safina and he handed the letter to Safina and told her that Fern had only said kindly of Ishan, a smart man. The letter reads:

Safina,

I don’t believe our paths have crossed in a very long time. The last encounter I had was 10 years ago when we fought against the Soul-less. I hope the Kor have lived well since. I ask for your support and a representative from your people to aid me in an organisation I am forming to stop criminals and murderers across Pargon. I would imagine you don’t expect any of your tribe to do such things within your community but it would be a great help if your people, along with the Silent Ones as I understand they are amongst your tribe as well, in support across the other nations.

Not for the first time, Safina wished she had paid more attention as a child when her uncle had tried to teach her to read. Bribing her brothers to give her their answers had seemed like a clever idea at the time, but now she was a leader it was becoming more and more of a problem. Not that her people were concerned. Many Kor woman couldn't read or write; it was common knowledge that their minds were more suited to practical action and quick decision making than understanding abstract lines on a page. But other human tribes seemed obsessed with letter-writing.

As her brother finished reading Fern's words, she poured the courier a drink of water and indicated for him to sit.

"My nephew says you are a cousin of Fernando Thistle. It has been a long time, but I remember him. I hope he has had many children since," she added politely, keen not to offend. The request was a strange one and not all of the Kor men on the council were hiding their unease. "The Silent ones do not live with the Kor, but their tents are nearby, and myself or one of my sisters can speak to them on your behalf if you wish."

She hesitated, then continued in a more straight-forward manner she was clearly more comfortable with. "What is it exactly that Fernando wants from me and my people? Is he asking for some of us to live away from the desert so that we can help track down criminals? If so, how long for? Who will decide who is a criminal and how will they decide it?"

The courier nodded and smiled along with the welcoming customs of the Kor. He replies to the inquiry in a way as if he had memorized what had been said by Fern himself, "Not necessarily for people to live away from the tribe, Shah Safina, as people are useful across the globe. Mr.Thistle wishes the formation of a group, a council if you will, in order to determine acts of evil together so as to be unbiased and to stop them. Fern does not want to solely decide who is good and who is bad, which is why he asks for representatives of all people. In addition, he can not stop all criminals everywhere due to them being in greater number, power or simply not where he is at that time. One of your mages could message back and forth with the rest of the council to allow them to stay with the tribe. Should you need help here or we need your help in the lands nearby, aid can be given. Your assistance itself may be called upon should we need it."

He pauses, then continues.

"His ideal is to avoid events such as the Soul-less uprising by intervening before it can get out of control."
