Rise of the Thrall Lord
Maltars Journal Iunius 10
Iunius the 10th, 1047
Blast Gryswold with his inane interruptions! I care not for his concerns of plots and Baronial succession. As if anyone would care if this mud-hole slipped into the sea. I only chose Ravenford as a quiet place to study, because it is inconsequential.
I cannot spare time for nonsense. I begin to feel watching eyes upon me, and I fear leaving my sanctuary at night. As always I trust my instincts. It is time to move my research…
If I could just master this one spell, I could easily destroy my foes and secure my position on the Council with the Color of my choice. But I must wait for the Cruex Crystal to focus my casting and help shield me from the dark powers that will be released.
