Dearest Nilaith,

After stepping out into the world as the First Born urged us, I can not say that I regret one moment of it. I have experienced much in my time adventuring, excitement, sadness, wonder and yes, heartbreak....

Dragon hunting is not for the faint of heart, and I have met many brave souls in the Order as well as the Pact. My friends have become dear to me, as they must if you hope to survive in this world. I trust them and hope that, even with Mordremoth's rise, they still trust me. It is hard, his voice is sinister, seductive. But he has Destiny's Edge and...Trahearne. My heart aches to think of him so close to that insidious voice, the creature who wishes to enslave us all. But he is strong, and I know, Mother willing, he is still himself.

I head into the breach today, Nilaith, this is why I write you now. My friends and I hope to end the Elder Dragon today. If we win, I will see you in the Grove to celebrate, if we lose... well, I prefer not to dwell on that. Give my love to Isield, if you see her. The campfire grows dim, and I must sleep.

May the Mother guard your dreams,



When I first was leveling Huade, I fancied Huade was in love with Trahearne, but an unrequited love, as a student who sees her teacher so far above her, she could never win his regard. I'm not sure if that came across in the letter, but I assume Nilaith knows all about Huade's feelings and there was no need to overdo it.

Please let me know what you think of the outfit and screens. I was trying to go for a necromancer feel with the items I chose, but a very different colour palette than you see on most necros. I think the orange looks amazing against her dark blue skin.

Thanks for looking!

Really nice autumn themed look!
I love how well the shoulders tie in with this withered and dry appearence.
Your presentation is also very good! :D
Gold for you!

Wow! i really like your dye choices and the whole backstory idea sounds like something fun to use as an extra layer whenever she deals with trehearne :)

Thank you for the gold! I spent a lot of time finding good light sources for some of the screen shots.

Thank you for the gold, Hylek. Hadn't thought of withered as a descriptor, but that is the perfect word for it.

Thank you for your kind words. I'd appreciate it if you could give it a medal grade of silver or higher to go with them. If you're wondering how I know you either gave me a bronze or didn't vote at all, our profiles show how many of each medal we have given out. Yours only shows bronze, and you appear to me new, so some tips. All votes default on bronze status for new entries, so if you want to change it, you need to move the sliders up to increase the points. Hope that helps. Thanks again for your kind words!

I am not quite sure if I am 100% on board with the dyes, although I do appreciate that you went for somenthing uncommon and experimental
But this is pretty much the only thing I could say against this look since I simply love the rest of it
The armour mix is just so good looking and something about her face and "hair" is simply so appealing to me
You clearly put a lot of effort into description and screens which I always appreciate tremendously!
So have a big fat gold ^^

Thanks so much for you for the gold! I understand the dyes aren't going to be to everyone's taste, but I'm glad you appreciate what I was going for. I've been really trying to step up my game with my descriptions and I'm glad so many people have enjoyed this one. I've looked at other hairstyles and none them suit her face as well as this one.
Thanks again!
