I have, at last, left the comfort of the chambers which had been loaned to me by academic colleagues at the University of Imradd. This morning I left the protective walls of that great city and began my journey north through the homelands of Redune.
Tonight I plan to rest here, at the Frolicking Dragon Inn, on the Great North Road, some miles south of Illen. I have entrusted this message to a distinctly unreliable looking dwarf called Figgle, who was just a little bit too eager to take my Anguin gold crown! Hopefully it will reach you safely.
Yours whilst waiting in eager anticipation of some roast boar and parsnips for supper,
