My friends and citizens of the Renaissance Realm, I have been away far too long. How I wish that cause for this missive were to be a grand proclamation of a joyous return. Alas it is with heavy heart that I report news that one of our dearest friends, Lord Krake, has embarked on that great and last journey. Lord Paramont he was, supreme above all other great leaders within our community. He left his Mark in this realm, and the Mark he left in the world we outside will never be forgotten. He kept the lanterns lit within our hearts, and never ceased to be a light to all who would seek shelter from the dreary darkness of the unknown. “Fear not” that much I can say, is how I will remember him. “Fear not, as I depart beyond, I’ll be there waiting, it shan’t be long.” “Fear not, I shall only be at the road ahead, waiting for my friends.” “Fear not, dear friends. Live, love, and laugh, as I have done.” Brother to so many of us, father of The Sanctuary. He inspired such great events; grand hunts, games of mystery, and many a serendipitous happenstance. Our archives are full of so many of his great adventures. May our memories of this man ever remain within our hearts. Farewell Lord Paramont Krake.
