Why did I sign up for this?
Mom! Pop! I am writing home and hope all is well. Mediocrates says a catastrophe has occurred in Suzail. I’d be lying if I said I did not fear for the worst. I am not suited for this lifestyle. With the events I was told of, I know my time at Sea is bound to only get worse. I have been told that other ships have been dispatched to commence a wide search of the surrounding areas as well as ground forces patrolling the countryside for the murderous scum that would so unprovoked attack the heart of our great country. If what I was told by Mediocrates is true, I hope we aren’t the ones to find them.. Why would they kill the prince, it just makes no sense to me. Admittedly, I am not as intelligent as the War Wizards. I’m sure they have it all figured out and will inform us of their motives soon. I’ll write then and let you know; I know how you worry. I wish only to return home and begin my cobblery with father.
It isn’t all worry and doubt though. I have seen some amazing feats of strength from the captain in my tour around the sea. He is so radiant in his demeanor; it really is a boon to us all just to be in his presence. He reassures us we will be home soon to see our women and families. These tours are just peacekeeping and act as a reminder for the unscrupulous tenants of the sea.
I need need to cut this letter short, word was just spread that there is a ship in danger on the horizon. Smoke can be seen, which likely means there are people that need our help aboard or possibly some stranded in the sea..
