41. From Vigil’s Log:
This Patron bloke began lecturing us on our stay at Provenance. I have categorically no concern for a word of it. He said he had relegated some areas for our “individual refinement and rest.” I don’t know about these other people who have landed in this scenario, but I intend wholly to do the opposite. I will not serve the purposes of Patron, not so long as he holds me here when my homeland burns. I don’t even know if my family lives… if my army is whole…
I resolve to deny Patron. I shall study for any method that might permit me to deny him so, when he is clearly master of this realm. If he prepared me a mansion, then it shall be mine, and none shall enter save they have a fantastic cause. My life shall henceforth be devoted to my escape, with or without Patron.
Provenance shall never be a place I consider home.
((Mod Notes: For ease of reading, I intend to write Bios for each character as they are introduced and add a summary page, so that people can rapidly catch up if they don’t want to read the historical posts (which I can’t really blame them for.))
