[The following letter is brought to Camp Steadfast Snow and Camp Just Fire before the Academy begins the long journey home]
You have my deepest gratitude for your conduct over the past few days. The Academy has earned a powerful ally, and it is down to you. Moreover, my city has been saved from a terrible fate.
Our next mission brings us to the depths of Etris, and it is likely that there are none of the comforts of Karashima in such a place. To that end, I invite any of you that are willing to stay the winter here in Karashima, as a guest of the House of Ten Thousand Smiles.
I understand that everyone’s quest for knowledge takes them on a different route, and for many the answers will not be here. For those of you whose work can be explored at any location, I can offer introductions to clever smiths and magical artisans of most kinds.
The world is still a dangerous place, I say let us enjoy this victory while we can, and spend a little time together with our new allies to further strengthen the alliance.
If you accept my offer of hospitality, send word to the House of Ten Thousand Smiles .
Joy and Honour in all things,
House of Ten Thousand Smiles, Clan Hospitalty
Proud Graduate of the Academy
