[Matis] Court of the Karae (2020-08-02)

Report of the Court of the Karae held on Floris 29th, 2609-3 (1)

At the invitation of Nya Karae Tamiela Fillia di Torani, fifty hominas and homins from all nations curious about our science gathered in the Throne Room of the Palace of Yrkanis to exchange the results of the observations made in the Nexus Minor, the region of Atys the most deeply affected by the barkquake of Medis 19th, 2608-2 (2).

Given the colourfulness of the assembly, the Karae opens Her Court by recalling the protocol that governs it… In vain, since its work will later be delayed or interrupted by the crash irruption of a curmudgeonly (but disciplined) Fyros patriot, the misguided presence on the scene of two young ill-mannered Matis in search of a reward, various whispering between some Fyros and other breaches of etiquette.

The successive interventions of Bubbason-ito (mischievous Zorai a bit off-topic), Ser Tapco (heren of the Alkiane Order), Serae Zendae (Masteress of Arms of the Kingdom), Serae Lylanea (ranger bard formerly Companion Lady of the Karae Mother Lea), Elke-miko (assiduous Zorai cartographer) and Ser Nathanel (heren of Strange Ones and skilled craftsman) could nevertheless be heard by all… and made possible the information of everyone about strange phenomena. Namely, that the disruption of the Nexus referred to above has had consequences:
  • on its topography (obviously), which now shows, around Hammer Hills, not only enchanting landscapes but also unfathomable chasms;
  • on its flora, where forest species now mix with species characteristic of other ecosystems (alaos and jayazengs of the Jungle, trumpers and small flyers of the Lakes, as well as olansis of the Desert) but also forest species, such as the angelio, once unknown in the region;
  • on its fauna, whose specimens are now more aggressive and fearsome than before the catastrophe, including the gibbaïs, more vindictive and dangerous than ever;
  • on its resources, at last: not only have the materials extracted since last year in the Nexus that could have been examined proved to be of exceptional quality, but they also seem to be at the origin of the changes, characterized above, in the regional fauna and flora.
At the end of these exposés, whose content (as well as the final remark of the author of this report) leaves her for a moment pensive, the Karae resolves to visit the Royal Botanist and heads to the Great Greenhouse with no other escort than Serae Ayala and those present… Line Cuidi is discharged. Motivated by the Karae's desire to gather Chiaera Cuirinia's opinion on the reported observations, the expedition will, alas, have a very different epilogue: upon arrival on the scene, the group of curious people discovers the botanist lying on the ground, her forehead decorated with a substantial bump. Once revived, Chiaera explains that she had just been knocked out in surprise by an Yrkanis guard while she was examnining a batch of seeds for the Plant Wall (3)… Batch whose vanishing she then notices with horror. After expressing Her displeasure (and Her regret for the discharge given to Her personal guard), the Karae, remembering having passed a solitary guard as she entered the Great Greenhouse, asks those present to go and search for him while she will go and relate to her husband both what Her Court has taught her of the worrying situation in the Nexus, and the no less worrying episode that followed.

Editor's note: The continuation (and end) of the account of the events of that day is, in fact, constituted by the missive the author of its beginning above addressed earlier today, on behalf of the Alkiane Order, to Her Majesty Tamiela.
