Stevano picked up the letter that his secretary had just written under his dictation. He reread it then affixed the royal seal with a determined gesture.
Send this to Orphie Dradius immediately.

The secretary quickly walked away. The voice of the Royal Herald was already echoing in front of the Palace, calling upon the vassals and inhabitants of the Kingdom to fight the threat from the depths.
To Orphie Dradius,

I hope that the arrival of the Kitins of the Depths in the Kingdom has nothing to do with the tunnel that I have allowed you to consolidate in the Grove of Confusion. And so I expect you and your rangers to make every effort to ascertain this.
It goes without saying that all homins must fight against this threat and rangers can join in eradicating it. However I remind you that any measure against the tunnels has to receive my approval before any action. We have other means than termites.

A swift reply

Orphie Dradius looked at her mail again. She had just read the extensive report from Lou Tei-Sang regarding the reduction of the threat of the white kitins in the Forest. The fact that they had not re-emerged at once was reassuring, but not a cause to reduce vigilance. The next letter was marked with a seal, the seal of the Karan Stevano. She broke the seal and read the short missive within, then grumbled a little to herself. She took a deep, calming, breath. A swift reply was needed and one that was both carefully and accurately worded. She wrote:
Unto Stevano, Karan Mateis and High Priest of Jena, greeting this 23h - Quarta, Pluvia 16, 3rd AC 2597.

I have received your most recent letter and make haste to reassure Your Majesty on your concerns.

Firstly, the path from the Grove of Confusion to Silan is patrolled daily by the engineers who work to keep it stable. There have been no signs of any Kitins in the tunnel at any time, neither normal Kitin nor the white Kitins of the Depths. You can rest assured that we will continue to be sure that this remains the case.

As for the current incursion, none of my Rangers has observed any new Kitin Mounds nor their associated tunnels. This is good news, but we shall continue our vigilance. Should any such Mounds be found in the Matis lands you may be sure that we will bring them to the attention of your officials and will attempt no action against them without Your cooperation.

With utmost respect,
Orphie Dradius,
Guide Ranger.

Unto Karan Stevano

Deles silam,

I allow myself this missive ahead of next chamber of Nobles, favouring promptness of intelligence over strictness of etiquette.

First of all the invasion of white kitins seems stopped as inexplicably as it started. It's good news, but as filira Salazar commented what is less good is that those kitins could appear and disapear without traces.

I'm aware that we suspected the recent openning of the path to Silan to be the cause of the invasion. However the facts refute this hypothesis, espacially because the invasion occurs simuntaneously in jungle, and that regarding forest, is was not centered on Confusion Groove. This tall jugula which was eliminated seems the only consequence of the openning to silan.

I have to inform you that the Rangers were remarkably active in the elimination of white kitins. On this side we cannot deny that they are commited to fulfill their mission.

However, the goal of my missive is also to share with you my personnal hypothesis regarding the reason of this invasion. And I think Rangers are really the cause.

Indeed, the invasion started not long after those last had introduce a new rite of passage for their aspirants. This rite occurs somewhere on Oflovak road and certainly has no link with the invasion, BUT, after the rite passed, the fresh ranger is invited to stride across prime roots seeking the pathway that form their transportation web.

My hypotheis, is that Rangers, while crossing massively those tunnels, with the euphoria and clumsiness we could imagine from new rangers discovering those paths, have excited a colonny from the depth, which move up to surface.

I talk about this hypothesis to rangers themselves but their instructor remained very dubious. Of course.
But he admitted that the question should be studied.

Whatever, the invasion has stopped, which I explain by the fact that most of aspirants have now becomed rangers that know all paths and most importantly that know how to use them with more experience and discretion. "The fever has gone" we could say.

We can also wonder why lakes and desert were spared from this invasion. My intuition is that comes form differences in the composition of our undergrounds.

I won't develop here more geological considerations on what is only a hypothesis. I remain at your disposal.

Jena aiye,

Mistress of Arms,
Royal Ambassador toward Rangers,
Operations leader at S.K.A
