Let me introduce myself I am Baron Gavin Breen, Lord of the Greypeak Mountains, Sheriff of Parnast, Hero of the Well of Dragons. Wow that is a mouth full when introducing little ole me. I have done it I have stepped out of the shadow of my father and I have lands, title and a keep of my own.
I am sending you this message now that the threat is over and Tiamat gets to stay in Hell where she belongs. I have to say that thanks to the training that I got from Onthar Frume we were able to come up with a battle plan that allowed our army to prevail on the field of battle. The cult never expected us to cast water-walking on the cavalry, allowing them to flank the giants that were defending the bridge. With the bridge taken the dwarves could move siege weapons onto the high ground and do some damage. Also the Paladin Balasar talked to the Rangers of the Emerald Enclave, and it was a sight to see, treants acting as mobile archery platforms for the rangers and druids.
Oh I am so happy with my new friend and mount Winnowill the Copper Dragon/Fay creature. Without her the battle would have been very different. I was able to fly into battle and kill the cult leader before he could cast a spell or do a thing. Being able to fly also allowed me to kill flying cultist who thought they would be safe in the air chanting. Well they were wrong about that.
I was worried about one part of the battle. I am not sure what she did, but Kadance made a deal with her infernal kin. Devils entered the battle to fight against the devils that the cult had employed. I think her deal was to let the Devils try and convert any cultist that survived the war. Which makes sense, if I was worshiping for Tiamat and I had failed her like the cult had I too might want a deal where my soul did not go to her, but almost anywhere else, thank Tymora we don’t have to worry about that. I just hope that Kadance has not lost too much of herself in this deal, but if she has I am ready to ride through the gate of Hell to get her back. Oh by the way, when it comes to Kadance going to knight her. This will give her title of Dame; this is just in case she ever has need of it. I may just put the paperwork in so that it is a surprise. I would love to see the look on her face the 1st time someone uses her title. “What can I do for you? Dame Kadance?” Hahaha I was thinking I would Knight Grr also, but that would just be confusing to everyone. As for Balasar I think he is on a different path with the order of the Gauntlet, but I will find out. He is a good man, and could be useful if he wants to live in the Graypeak Mountains.
Now mother you will need to get ready to travel. Once I have the manor house in Parnast ready, and the Keep around it under construction. There is going to be a wedding. Now that I truly have something to offer Lady Mollasandra Minuette Brightwater DeSolla, Second Daughter of House DeSolla, Keeper of the Keys, Lady in good standing with the Houses of Termish, the added title of Baroness. I am going to officially propose, and not worry about the arrange betrothal that you and the Lady DeSolla came up with years ago. Yes I know that ultimately I am doing just what you wanted, but I am now doing it on my own terms, and I hope that is what Molly wants also.
So in getting my manor house and keep ready I might have to get a new grounds keeper. My troll Trepsin might be a problem. I am going to give him a choice, he can stay and be the grounds keeper, but he will have to give up his worship of demons, and he will have to stop eating people. I am not sure if this is something I can explain to him and if not he will have to go. But I hope to keep him around by trying to get him to worship the god Silvanus, god of nature and hunting. If this does not work I will make a deal with the Giants of Skyreach castle and see if they would like to add a troll to their crew of monsters. I think he will like it there because they have a liberty that has books in giant, and oddly enough that troll loves to read, but my plan is to keep him as a grounds keep or maybe a scout into the more dangerous areas of the Graypeaks, I figure a 4 armed troll should be able to survive anything he runs into out there.
Lastly I am going to tell you a secret. I know that I have always hated the idea of joining groups, and organizations and stuff like that. But now that I have responsibilities beyond myself I am going to join the Harpers. Yes I know they are nosey, do-gooders that know how to ruin profit for everyone, but I am not about profit. The lands that I am in control of has a number of teleportation portals, one I know where only one of them goes, but the other 4 we barely have an idea. I believe that the Harpers are the best people to figure out the portals, and they can help me control them. Also being on the edge of Fallen Lands I will need the information, and the help to keep the people safe. I will talk to Remi Haventree, and Leosin Erlanthar I am sure we can some to some kind of agreement. Let’s hope that they can supply me with information, troops, and all the things I will need to be a successful Baron. So please keep the Harper stuff to yourself, they like secrets.
See you at the Wedding (I hope she says yes) or when you visit.
Your truly Baron Gavin Breen, Lord of the Greypeak Mountains, Sheriff of Parnast, Hero of the Well of Dragons, but mostly your loving son.
