1048 - The Year in Review
1st day of the Year
It is announced only hours before the joust tournament that High King Rene’ Nari’ has entered the lists of this joust. Several Knights upon hearing this prepare to width draw from the tournament. Their reason is out of fear of possibly injuring the King of Azin and the consequences to them and their families, for to spill royal blood will soon lead to your blood and the blood of your families to be spilled.
The Marshal of the Tournament walked on the field and made a statement. As the wishes of his Majesty Rene’ Arthur Darius Michael Nari’ his name has been entered onto the lists for this day’s tournament. I hold here his royal proclamation which states that if injured in honorable tournament play this the 1st day of the Year 1048 of the Time of the Kingdom of Man that the one responsible will not be charged of insulted for said injuries, for this is a day when all are one in honor for the spirit of cooperation.
The statement by the Marshal of the Tournament persuaded all of the Knights to remain on the lists and to participate in the full Joust Tournament. What most knights did not realize is how excellent the King of Azin has always been in mounted combat and the chivalric lance. Rene’ Nari’ High King of Azin bested all comers to the Joust.
Rene’ Nari’ crowned his new niece Katrina Ysa’ Ellime’ Ath Dresden princess of the tournament and his wife Gwenhyfar Isabel Stewart Nari’ as Queen of the Joust.

The Winter Festival is coming to the end. At the last feast of the festival, the Duchess of Kent hosts a lavish meal with entertainment from around the world. As the tumblers from Bryagel finish their routine, the crowd is left speechless by their finale. The silence is broken by the sounds of a lead glass goblet breaking as it strikes the floor. All eyes turn to the daughter of the Duchess of Kent. The Duchess runs to her side as she begins to speak in a powerful but far away voice.
With Greatness of Urgency
No Ones Slave
Hunger for Vengeance
Hunger of Hatred
The answer Lay’s Dormant
Forged Cold Stone
Flight and Flee
Fight and Be Consumed
Fight Alone and Be Consumed
Fight as One and Stand
Fight as One and Survive
Once she finished her body became frail and she fell into her mother’s arms. Immediately the Duchess swept her daughter to her chambers so she could rest. Her daughter will have no memory of the events but will awake exhausted and in need of sustenance, as these episodes take a great toll on her daughter.

It is at that moment Ellime realized that Aylita blamed herself for the death of Duke Tully.

In the Dark
Not for Food, Not for Nourishment
Searching, Pursuing the Pure Scent
Pure Scent, Pure Source
Their Master wants It
Our Master Wants it
They Will Deliver It
We Will Deliver It
To Die is Better than to Fail
For in Death there is no more pain.
The Scent is close, closer now
The pack smells the fear from its body.
Close Now, The Pack Draws Near.
Wait There is Another
Another Scent Almost Masked
Familiar This Scent Is
Guarding the Packs Prey
Protecting Our Prey
The Glint of the Glaive
Strike Down the Pack
One After Another
At least there won’t be anymore pain.
Several words in the above translation have multiple meaning or could have multiple meanings. Trigar could mean Master or it could mean God. The scholars are still arguing over it.
