*The flowers and gentle rains of Spring spread across Osterra. Those same winds of change carry ravens to the halls of faction leaders - bearing sealed scrolls marked with a raven perched on a sword. Breaking the seal reveals the following message:*Brothers, Sisters -
I pray winter has been kind to all, and most to your aged and infirm, for whom such seasons are always a burden.I understand there is to be a grand voyage of exploration to the new Continent and in pursuit of the Demon Lord, Ferdinand.All are invited to visit Haven before setting sail - come and see the fruits of your labor and generosity. While most of our structures are still made of humble wood, yet lacking stone, fine glass, gilt or ornate decoration, there has been much progress.
Let us confer one last time before your journey, and together invoke the blessing of the Lords of Light for your noble task - and to keep your people safe and grant swift victory over the forces of darkness.I hope to join you there in time. For now, I must remain behind and oversee Haven's completion. We look forward to hosting you and may your journey here be without incident.Yours in the Light, Gareyth
