Twenty Fifth Feast

draft

It pains me that I must once again spend this evenings discourse addressing personal matters rather than attending to more scholarly matters.

And truly, the prejudices of those who live by brute force bear for men of learning are well known and I had almost thought that I could dismiss some recent blather attempting to besmirch my former brethren at the Great Library as having any relation to the theft of internationally sensitive documents that took place at the Twenty Fifth Feast.

And yet, such brazenly false claims cannot be left unaddressed as they are merely another phase of the campaign of the Red Claw to attempt to whitewash their bloody background.

For who else other than those involved in so many horrendous events of the War of Broken Succession (which would have most certainly recorded in great detail in the confessions locked in the Archive) would have greater incentive to remove any possibility of public revelation?
