The afternoon’s activities were punctuated by the arrival of a villager from Meridianas who appeared suddenly through the portal.
Bellesera and Maidens alike were summoned by the Ambassador Andor yesterday afternoon after a letter from Princess Leisaura was received. This letter requested that a group of Captivenians be sent to investigate reports from the northern region of Meridianas. The Princess, due to other matters of state, expressed her regrets on not being able to do so herself, but that she had no doubt in the abilities of the maidens of Captivenia performing such a task.
Although there is fear since Lady Mara’s escape last year, Captivenia has again opened the gates for the annual Festival of Maidens. Maidens from all across the land have travelled to participate in this event.
