Amazing work! Thanks for that, really helpfulDearest Alandril,
Bad news, beeko.
It worked, and now you have to admit I was right. You were so sure that sailing with the Imperial transports in scholar's regalia would earn their trust, but nothing gets Imperial lips flapping like a drunk-sounding saxhleel and a sloppy pat on the back. People trust those they think incapable of manipulation. I get the sense some of these Imperials think even less of saxhleel than your friends in Shimmerene do.
They all told me why they're coming to Summerset, just like you asked. Don't worry, I'll leave you my reports without further commentary. But I hope you'll join us at the dice tables when I get there. Bring your finest of finest robes, friend. Who knows, maybe they'll just help.
Quattria: Dominion recruiters caught her at the gate to Cyrodiil. She wants to help fight the Daedra on the frontlines. Grief has made her grow impatient, but determined.
Nathias: The bumbling scholar couldn't decide for years between joining the Dominion or the Pact to research the Ayleids. He was still fretting over it when the Great Anchor opened up above Imperial City. Then his husband took a position in a Fighters Guild in Valenwood. He sounds a bit unhappy about it, but he sighs like he'd be unhappy anywhere.
Latrina: I had to arm wrestle answers out of this one. I tell you, it takes a lizard's patience. She called Ayrenn the most likely ruler, and your Dominion the strongest alliance. She said whoever took the throne soonest would let her return home while there's still something left. Based on her smirks, I think she let me win a few rounds.
Fortunio Inaptus: He fled misfortune in Leyawiin with a friend, a Wood Elf who smuggled him into Dominion lands. He'd sooner sign allegiance than live on the run from the Justiciar, I gather.
Fallida: When Imperial City fell, the old lady asked obsessively after her grandaughter-in-law. The Covenant found no trace of her. The Pact ignored her pleas. A month later, the Dominion found only a bracer, marked inside with a single letter. It was nothing, she said, but at least it meant they tried, while she had nearly given up. She sounds so sincere. But friend, I trust this one the least.
