Nikomachos Solon 

22 December, 3013 — Willowtree Hospital, Landing

To: Solon.Cindravale@Phylon
From: Nikomachos.Sauveur@PalaceTowers
Subject: A call to action


You have a lot of time to think when you're stuck in a hospital bed. And I've been thinking about what's holding us back. Not you, not me, not House Cindravale. Haven. The War. Big thoughts, I know. It's what happens when I get stuck in a small room, I'm afraid.

I've seen lords and ladies more concerned with maneuvering against one another than about fighting the Hostiles, more concerned with gathering personal power than protecting the people sworn to them. I've seen Knight Lieutenants too concerned with their own personal safety to drive forward and accomplish the critical missions placed before them.

We're too stuck in the old ways, the ways of political shift, the call to power within Haven, the placing of the one before the many. With the Hostiles coming down around our ears, we need to be arrayed alongside one another, without care for whether we're Cindravale, Sauveur, Khournas, Arboren, Orelle, or Citizen. And we need to be driving forward, putting our best people where they can do the most good.

We need to come together as a people, or we will be destroyed by the war, either by the Hostiles themselves or by the infighting that follows in forty years. I don't have a plan, a plot, or a timeline, I just have a call to action, and I want to make sure that you're there with me. I want to appeal to the rest of the Generation of Vengeance, to those of us raised to win this war. I want to appeal to those like us to draw together, to put aside our bickering differences and swear to see the best person for each and every job placed where they can do the most good. To swear to put the needs of Haven before the needs of ourselves.

Will you stand with me and help me find others to stand alongside us both? Will you join me on this crusade to truly unite Haven?

Please pardon me for taking time to respond to you, Niko. I wanted to spend time processing them and giving them proper thought before giving you a response.

I think what you say is true. In order to be victorious over the Hostiles the people of Haven must stand as one, not as Cindravale or Sauveur, not as Arboren or Orelle, but as Havenites. The foe we have arrayed before us is united in their cause. We should be united in our purpose as well.

I will stand with you, Niko. There is no one else that I would rather ride beside than you, you know that. I am shocked that you even thought you had to ask me if I would back you in such an endeavor.
