I am writing to you at the request of my Lady, the Duchess Erica Lament. I and 100 men-at-arms hold the Gate Portal outside the Azinian fortified settlement. Our opposition desires greatly this piece of land that we hold.
My Duchess wishes to thank you for your support of her people and for supporting her decisions. She has informed me that once the fleet returns, she will begin to evacuate the military forces of Azin and her allies. She will try to get the army out as intact as possible.
I now must be the messenger of sad tidings:
Elick Stone Hammer, the Dwarven weapons master and brother to the Konung of the White Mountains fell in battle yesterday. He ensured his place in Valhalla. I and my men were not able to reach him in time. Please extend my apologies to his family. He was a good warrior and a good leader. I only pray that I take out as many of those unholy creatures as he did when I fall.
Forgive me my Sovereign Lord, the news I am honor-bound to report only gets worse.
I need to inform you that the Gate Portal near the Dwarven settlement as well as the public Gate Portal outside of the Elven settlement has fallen. It is my understanding that both the Dwarves and the Elves disabled their Gate Portals to disallow the enemy their use.
I need to inform you that we are no longer under siege by undead creatures only. Six days ago, the first Reapers were reported mixed in with the undead. Their numbers have been increasing. Around my position we have counted 20 score reapers and 500 score undead.
My Sovereign Lord, I have three personal requests to make of you.
The first - The messenger carrying this message is my younger brother. He turned 11 this past month and will need a new knight to be a squire to. I would be honored if you could arrange that.
The second - I have included a letter to my mother, the Duchess of Easthold. Could you please see that she gets it?
My last request, Sovereign Lord, - please in your divine goodness and will ensure that my lady, the Duchess Eric Lament, is rescued from Patronna. I am afraid I can no longer protect her here. She has done nothing wrong and is a person of good nature and of the highest honor. I beg you, my Sovereign Lord, please save her.
In closing, my Sovereign Lord, it is my desire that I have served the Duchess Erica Lament well and the Crown of Azin well.
I vow that I will not let the Gate Portal fall into the hands of the enemy.
Signed your faithful servant

As requested I sent the message to our Sovereign Lord. I know he received it.
I am afraid that I have failed you. My men and I can not hold the Public Gate Portal much longer. The best I can do is to try to draw the enemy away from you and then, with the help of Franklin the mage, prevent the enemy from ever using the Gate Portal.
I beg that you live my Duchess. It is my desire that you find happiness in your life.
