I would just like to tell you up front that the next couple of weeks, I will be out on sea hunting for treasure, and I will just randomly come back to get more supplies and make sure you're all still alive.
You need not worry about state, but I would like you all to just keep an eye with stalls and such while I am not present, as things might change in a heartbeat. If you need me to appear, just send a sealed bottle with the tide, and I will pick up the message when it reaches me.
For now, and forever
Written by my hand on the 1st of Paglost, in the year 1292.
