Exalted: Northern Skies
The Journal of Red Sky at Night
My clever Eclipse,
If I had known that it would take an eternity, I never would have agreed to the oath to not bed your Circlemate before you did. It’s been decades. Clearly, you need my help. This book will allow is to communicate without myself having to exert the effort toward a visit or sorcery. However, you are always welcome to come visit me at the Salon Provocative.
[There is a sketch of very poorly drawn roses].
WHAT THE HELL IS THAT SUPPOSED TO BE?
DID YOU DRAW THEM WITH YOUR PAWS OR SOMETHING?
I think I am understanding why you are failing to seduce the man.
I THINK I SEDUCED YOU JUST FINE.
You were drunk and I didn’t have your name on my list yet.
DON’T PRETEND YOU DON’T SEE THAT YOU WOLF-EYED BASTARD.
[Sketch of a very badly drawn map of the North and some trade routes]
You maps are as poorly drawn as they are inaccurate.
I’M NOT A FUCKING CARTOGRAPHER I AM A CONQUEROR.
A conqueror of an empty bed, without Relentless Tempest.
WOULD MY SUPPLY LISTS BE MORE AMUSING TO YOU?
THOUGH SPEAKING OF LISTS….
WHY DO YOU ALWAYS DO THAT.
I WILL MAKE A BEDSPREAD OUT OF YOUR PELT YOU USELESS LUNAR.
I WILL MOUNT RELENTLESS TEMPEST ON IT IN VICTORY.
Bright Shattered Ice
Sweet Song of Sunrise
IS THIS YOUR SO CALLED LIST? I AM NOT IMPRESSED. YOU FORGOT MY NAME AND IT IS SHORTER THAN EXPECTED.
That was only last night, my dear.
I HATE YOU.
YOU SLEEP WITH EVERYONE. DO YOU KNOW A VILE WENCH NAMED LAST STAR OF EVENING?
I had the pleasure of getting to “know” her one hot summer night a decade ago and she was quite the opposite of vile, I assure you.
I HATE HER EVEN MORE THAN I EVEN HATE YOU RIGHT THIS MOMENT.
Ah. I believe I can safely assume who DOES like her.
BECAUSE OF THAT HARLOT, I RARELY GET TO SPEND TIME WITH HIM ANYMORE.
I can offer you a pleasant distraction until he grows bored of her.
AND IF HE DOESN’T?
Why wouldn’t he?
NOT EVERYONE IS LIKE YOU.
I have been hearing alarming rumors about your behavior in public, my friend.
Where are you?
Ignoring me is not going to make the problem go away.
You should not make an enemy of a Sidereal.
Fighting with him is only going to make things worse.
Please come and see me.
You are worrying me.
You’re wrong about me, you know. I do understand what it’s like to feel that you are about to lose someone important and I am feeling that right now.
I will come after you.
I WILL COME TO SEE YOU.
I HAD A CLEAR SHOT BUT I DIDN’T TAKE IT.
A clear shot at what, may I ask? Your circlemate’s ever elusive heart?
TO THAT BITCHES HEAD.
I am going to ignore the fact that you were contemplating outright murder and ask instead; why not?
HE LOOKED HAPPY BESIDE HER.
The feast in Meru will be soon and I dread the thought of how you will humiliate yourself when you see him in her presence.
You know the feast always bores me. Come spend time with me instead.
I WON’T LET HER HAVE HIM THIS EASILY. ARE YOU WORKING WITH HER, MAYBE? DO YOU WANT HIM TO BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO HAVE SO I KEEPING RUNNING TO YOU?
Of all the mad things you have said lately, this is the most absurd. I would never betray you.
Would you have me swear another oath to you? I will swear anything, and that is not something I offer lightly.
NO. NO MORE OATHS. BUT DON’T WRITE TO ME AGAIN UNLESS IT’S WITH THAT BITCHES BLOOD.
