Pallantar Akarat - Strategy

As you may have heard, the golem we set to watch over our supplies has been destroyed. Disenchanted is perhaps the best word, as it was destroyed through magic. The two mages I commissioned to be golemicists are having trouble even figuring out how this destructive spell worked.

This leads me to believe that there are one of two possibilities at work here. First, it could be that one of our Exiles has been secretly studying golemics, from the same texts we've been using, without our knowledge and faster than we can. And that they have some reason to steal water and interfere with our plans.

The more likely possibility is that someone else is in this desert with us.

I should mention that more water has been stolen, but not any barrels. We found an empty barrel near the destroyed golem, completely dry, without a molecule of water inside. I believe this can only be seen as a challenge to us.

Pallantar Akarat - Golems

Some of my colleagues have reminded me of the possibility of using golems as watchers; artificial life forms that can, if nothing else, raise an alarm if suspicious activity is detected. We didn't have any trained golemicists in the settlement, but we have found some of Nadrian Alabuck's old texts in the archives and I've got a couple of people working on relearning this ancient art. Not only will this help alleviate our security concerns, but I'm sure the golems will be useful in other areas of the settlement.

Pallantar Akarat - Interviews

I have extensively interviewed all the workers at the site, but nobody knows what happened. Nobody saw anything. One worker believes he remembers creating the water shipment and storing it, but then he left to perform other tasks. That was the last time anyone saw it.

All right. One shipment of water is missing, but the idea-web-dimension people have a saying, it's a "drop in a bucket". We are in no danger of running out of water. Our traps and [recycling mages] are well up to the task of supplying it, especially with the renewed humidity of the atmosphere. We did do a slight bit of rationing of less essential projects; That is regrettable. But Keriwen, if you want to take another trip into the desert with your students, our stocks are up enough that we can handle it.

Also, I don't know what the problem with the System was yesterday, but it seems to have been resolved. Of course, we do have a community outside the System; it's merely convenient for communication. It would be nice if everyone remembered that.

Pallantar Akarat - Shipment

We seem to be having some trouble locating shipment 256. If anyone has seen it, let us know.

Pallantar Akarat - Threshold

A threshold is an important concept in conjuration. The line where one thing changes to another, where solid melts to liquid, where one day turns into the next, where outside becomes inside. These are all important. I hear there is an important threshold occuring today in your culture; the turning of the year?

Pallantar Akarat - Problems

Keriwen, I thought we were supposed to have people in the idea-web-dimension commenting on our thoughts. Where are they all? Your idea doesn't seem to be working.

Pallantar Akarat - Work

Keriwen wants everyone to write something here, so I'm writing. I'm the head Engineer here, I do all the real work. So I don't have much time for writing.
