So I’ve been promoted to the honorable position of Master of Archives of Ran-Adin. Though it grieves me to still be stuck here, while my pleas go unheard by those who could do something about it, I must say that, in this instance, someone got something right.
I’ve been to the Sisters of St. Margo a few times to have them look into my breathing issues, and they assure me that it’s simply the change in humidity, and that my system will adjust…though it’s only gotten worse with time.
I’ve been continuing my studies on the fabled city of Thalia, and have uncovered some new information. Now closer to the position this great city once stood, I have a few more bits and pieces that have narrowed my search even further. I’ve been sharing my findings with the Gnome, Kaspar, and he seems genuinely excited about my research. He’s a secretive little man. One can only guess at his motives at any given time, though he has demonstrated his ability to utilize the Arcane Arts for me on more than a few occasions, and though not open to discussion are his talents, or their possibilities, he humors me on my occasional visits to the Dwarven Quarter to visit him.
My pleas for funding for the archives seem to get me about as far as my pleas for re-location, though the King himself has, on a few occasions, taken audience with me in respect to my research, and has “promised” that he will “look into the possibility of the allocation of some funds,” though I believe he says these things without thinking, and forgets them soon after.
I will continue my musings shortly, but for now I must go ensure that Kieth (a promising young student, though somewhat short-minded) has re-structured the Southwest corner of the Archives, as I have instructed him. If I were to venture a guess, it would be that he has not.
