Admiral's log, week 1, 8-28-481

Well, here I am. It's odd to be aboard the Lino en Kuldes and yet be in a completely different place and time from where it belongs. I suppose this is all my fault - I went looking for an adventure, and I sure as hell found one! I never knew squat about the northern continent, except for Scarlet Moon and Kanakan, so now it's going to come back and bite me in the ass. This isn't such a bad place, though. A lot bigger than the Obel Royal Palace, but it's way smaller than the Sun Palace in Falena. I bet the Prince's special castle is bigger, too, even though I never saw that one. I don't know why they call it a castle...estate is more like it, except it's nobody's estate. It's got a tavern (great beer), a library, a bunch of shops, stables, a fighting academy of some sort, and a cafe with a bakery next door. Kind of a nice place to take a vacation. I think I'll get to like it here, at least until winter. Some of the locals are already warning me about the snow. Great, just great.

There seems to be somthing astir, though. Caught sight of a notice tacked to a door in the manor, from some Captain of the local knights. I don't know what it means, I don't know anything about the local politics yet, but I get that prickly feeling in the back of my mind. I need to keep on my toes, just in case something goes down. I can't exactly claim to be a representative of the Island Nations Federation, since they didn't exactly send me here, but I might have to pretend for a bit to keep nosy council types off my ship and out of my business. It's either that, or pretend we're pirates. Hm, now that I write that down, it has a nice ring to it. Maybe I'll do that instead. That'll send 'em running.

At least I've got Bernadette. I don't want to get my hopes up about the other things they've been telling me, so I'll just be happy that I've got one of my kids around to keep me busy. She's got a boyfriend, I've been able to get that much out of her, but she won't tell me who it is. I've got my guesses, but I don't know the name of every strapping young buck around here yet, so for all I know it's one of those I haven't met. We'll see. It's a cat and mouse game, and this old tomcat is loving the chase.
