Once again the granite hued horse is sent out to parts unknown, this time with a relative location of the Yew Protectorate. Tied to his flank with a piece of shadow cloth is a parchment. The scrawl is elegant and even and as always has a smudge of ore, this time Verite. "With kindest regards to Duke Hast Mich, of Yew: Per our conversation last eve during the Residents Meeting, You have Magincia's full support in finding what has happened to your ward. I would be lying if I said I did not have my own suspicions in light of the recent events. However our resources and cooperation are at your disposal. Should you wish to speak about this further simply return a note with a time and day to meet. Sincerely, Lynne Zellinous Magincian Blacksmith and loyalist"
