Friends,

As time passes down here on this strange continent, and we explore more and more of the lost realm to which we have unlocked the gate, I am struck with a desire to create a small city-state to serve as a home base in this land, to leave a legacy for future generations and to immortalise our great works here. I would be honoured if you would join me in this endeavour.

The will and word of my patron deity encourages me to include others in the formation and building of this domain. It is his word that together we are stronger than the sum of our parts, a truism that has been ably proven time and again since our group was first assembled here by Cadoras. Together we face threats that one of us alone could not manage to contain, and together we emerge victorious.

I cannot do this alone, my friends. Please help me.

Each of us can play a role in this wonderland. Each of us has strengths and skills, and knowledge that can be turned to the greater good. I understand that day by day as we fight evil, we are helping the nation flourish, but that is a miniscule improvement – similar to patching a hole with a single thread. It does not take long before the thread unravels and we return to how we were before. This, this fabulous city for the future, however, would be a long term solution. Another patch that covers an area with strength and kindness. A force for good that can continue long after our blood has dried into dust and blown away.

So what say you? Shall we build something for the future? Shall we gift future generations with our combined skills and knowledge? Shall we build the greatest city-state we can imagine, a haven for knowledge, magic, goodness and justice, where each shall be judged by his actions and helped to thrive in the metropolis?

Yours, in eternal friendship,

Mauran Jalviar
