The Matter of Garrett

By Keeper Draco

Familiarizing yourself with Garrett's history and capabilities could prove essential should the time come when we no longer

deem him necessary. Garrett studied with us until his early twenties at which time he was offered the chance to proceed 

with the Indoctrination Ceremony and become a Keeper.  However, he lacked balance and instead expressed his intention to 

leave. The council voted we deal with him using the Enforcers, until Caduca informed us that Garrett was essential to 

overcoming difficult times ahead.  And so our most promising acolyte left us.

Garrett pursued the life of a criminal, and with the Keeper training we had given him, he quickly became a master thief.

His abilities did not escape attention of certain individuals, and he was lured into a Pagan plot that threatened the 

safety of the City.  During that time Garrett's eye was removed and used to power The Eye, one of the Artifacts we are 

studying (see Ogilvy's Treatise on Sentients for more regarding the Artifacts).  After the threat was neutralized, Garrett 

obtained a mechanical eye from the Hammerites.

Later his thieving abilities revealed an excessive imbalance within the Hammerite order (see The Mechanist Metal Age for 

more on this topic).  True to Caduca's predictions, Garrett had the abilities necessary to remove the threat and overcome 

our second trial.

Now Caduca has predicted a third Dark Age, and she believes Garrett will play a critical role, though the glyphs have yet 

to reveal if he will influence the outcome positively, or negatively.

Talia- I want to run this by you before I bring it to an Elder. You know how we search for the Compendium of Reproach in

our efforts regarding the Dark Age? Well, I recently scribed a passage in which the Compendium was mentioned.  It said it 

will 'be borne by a Terrible Storm'.  Then later, we heard that report about the ghost ship and all those undead. 

Completely unrelated to our work, right? Or is it? Because the name of that ship is the Abysmal Gale!  Do you see? Abysmal 

Gale...Terrible Storm...they mean the same! Imagine if it were my own efforts that lead to the recovery of the Compendium! 

Tell me if you think I've got something here.

Your friend,
Scribe Elsan

SM3acolytejournalEdit

The trouble started when I asked permission to leave the Library in order to visit the Compound and begin research for a 

new paper - a treatise on us, on Keepers - our history and founding principles.  To my knowledge, no such book has been 

written yet, and it seemed a worthy endeavor.  My proposal was well thought out and included chapters on Balance and the 

Powers of Glyphs. However, permission to visit the Compound was not granted me.  In fact, my request was met with surprise 

and outright suspicion.  Surely my idea was a good one, and I would be thorough in my research and truthful in my 

conclusions. But saying so only seemed to trouble the Elders further.  Then today, my duties were reduced.  Could it be 

related to my request? And if so, why? I'm afraid to press these questions further. Besides, who would I ask?

Artemus- The passage I scribed below is all I could find on the subject you requested.  Keeper Belios said there were other

books, but we could not find them.  Perhaps someone else is making similar inquiries.

Balance, Keeper Osteria

Sentients: 
Also known as Artifacts, Soul Stones, or Relics.  A grouping of five objects possessing special powers and what is thought 

to be a consciousness normally only associated with living entities.  Presumably created as part of an ancient safeguard 

against the forces of evil. Examples include the Heart and the Chalice (also called the Builder's Cup by the Hammerites). 

Efforts to confine all the Sentients to one place for study have failed.  How and when they came into existence is not 

known.  Recommend further study.

SM3caducamemoEdit

SM3caducamemo location

To: Elders
Regarding: Interpreter Caduca
From: FK Orland

Many have expressed frustration that the process of interpreting the glyphs regarding the Dark Age and the Brethren and

Betrayer is taking too long.  But be assured, Interpreter Caduca is consulting the books as much as her health allows. 

It should be said that the constant exposure to the books and the physical act of reading the glyphs has been a terrible 

strain on her.  You will recall that Caduca is one of the younger Interpreters we have had, but already she has spoken of a

successor due to the marked aging effect of the readings.  For now, Caduca continues to have readings every day and

believes she is close to important truths.  For further concerns, please see me.

Location: Pasted to the atrium wall, Keeper Library.

SM3darkageinstructions Location

Since it is of utmost importance that Interpreter Caduca continue her quest to uncover the identity of the Brethren and

Betrayer, she should not be interrupted for any reason.  Also, several Elders have been tasked with other urgent endeavors, 

including the search for the missing Compendium of Reproach, and the Glyph Key that unlocks it. The Compendium, a large 

golden slab, sealed with a glyph, may contain prophecies pertinent to the Dark Age problem and has been missing for well 

over a decade.  It is useless without its Glyph Key, which we believe may have gone missing around the same time. If you 

have been assigned to one of the quest groups, an Elder will contact you.

SM3doorglypEdit

SM3doorglyp Location

To: All Acolytes and Scribes

It has come to my attention that some of you have not yet undergone the Acolyte Ritual, and that there have been

unsubstantiated rumors about the safety of such practices.

The Acolyte Ritual is a simple Keeper indoctrination, is completely safe, and is mandatory for all Scribes.  After the

ritual, you will be able to see and use the Keeper Door Glyph.  The importance of acquiring this glyph cannot be stressed

enough.  Without it, a Keeper would be unable to see or open the myriad secret Glyph Doors that have been placed throughout

the city to mask our presence, bypass City gates, store supplies, and aid our maneuverability. The current citywide 

quarantine is a perfect example of the importance of the Keeper Door Glyph, as with it, we can easily pass between South

Quarter and Docks using our secret door near the gate.

If you have any questions, an Elder can assist you.

I should have known better than to bring it up in front of the entire council.  Still, my words had some effect, at least

now there is the resolution forbidding it.  I believe that will cause many to think twice should the temptation arise.

Meanwhile, we should all be on the watch for the telltale signs - the dead animals, their life forces drained.  It is not a

love of creatures that compels me to speak out.  No, they are pitiable, but inconsequential.  I can only speculate on how

long a Keeper could extend a normal lifespan in this way...a hundred...two hundred years? Maybe longer.  But it would take 

more than vermin to accomplish that.  And I, now that I posses the knowledge, can I truly say I too am not tempted? This is

why I cannot remain silent. That, and the glyph that Elder Beryl speculates must exist - though we have yet to find - one 

that enables shape-shifting. What a potent elixer of glyph magics that would be.

Garrett- The prescribed penalty for your crimes against us is death. However, I hath convinced the Hammerite clergy to

grant thee lenience, provided thou first perform enough of the following acts of atonement. First, the Rust Mites are

large, gold colored bugs that feed upon metal and undo our works.  We hereby grant thee the Builder's Blessing to destroy 

them with your arrows. Secondly, thou can smite the undead, for they are most abhorrent to us.  For each of these tasks 

thou accomplish, your standing with the Hammer Order wilt increase a small amount.  Whereas attacking any Hammerite will 

assuredly decrease your standing. The choice is thine.  At present, any Hammerite will attack thee on sight if they find 

you on city streets.  If thou increase thy standing with us sufficiently, we will allow thee to pass unharmed.  Do us many 

of these favors, and thou wilt be considered an ally and allowed into Fort Ironwood in Old Quarter. Lastly, 'tis my custom 

to ask everyone with whom I speak if they have seen a sort of hag, or heard rumors of an old gray lady near the scene of a 

gruesome crime.  If so, 'twould be a great favor to me to tell what you know. 'Tis my life's ambition to find the hag, but

my misfortune to always be ten steps behind her. My workshop is located in Auldale, near the pub.

Guiding Acolytes to their Destiny: 

Part VII, Enforcers: The Will of the Keepers

The call of the Enforcer is a strong one.  Those who wish to augment their strength and swiftness and those who wish to

protect the balance at all costs are drawn to this dominion. Acolytes should note that once indoctrinated, an Enforcer can

only communicate telepathically.  The Enforcer's education consists of all manner of stealth training, and specialized 

weaponry must be mastered.  After taking the vow, the glyphs are applied and the transformation takes place immediately. 

Once converted by the glyphs, there is no known way of countering the changes.  Elders who are guiding acolytes along this

path should take care in revealing the most sensitive aspects of the sacrifices involved.

* Xavier: Keeper Beryl has the floor.
* Beryl: I thank the council and the First Keeper. Today I have prepared a report on the 
backgrounds of several missing Keepers. My goal was to find common elements in their 
research that might lead to an explanation for their disappearances. Although there was 
no one thing they had in common, I believe I have found at least tangential evidence 
that they could be related. I'll start with Keeper Dover, whom you will remember for 
his rather unpopular theories about the nature of prophecy and especially his interest
in corruption- 
* Taber: Keeper Beryl, the council does not need a discourse on each missing Keeper. 
Have you found a common element to their research or not?
* Beryl: Well, it's not that simple.  I was trying to explain-
* Soveen: Perhaps Keeper Beryl has found several themes they all had in common-
* Beryl: If the council pleases, I have organized a report and would like to continue 
with my presentation.
* Taber: I move that this information be disseminated outside of the council forum, so 
that each of us can review Beryl's findings separately.  If necessary, the subject can 
be brought up at a subsequent meeting.
* Beryl: With respect to Keeper Taber and all those present, this very subject has been 
delayed by the council before and I-
* Xavier: Enough. This meeting will be adjourned for now. Keepers Taber and Beryl will 
report to me in my quarters immediately.

Keeper Rafe will be allowed to return the Sunken Citadel in an effort to retrieve what he believes to be the lost Glyph Key

that opens the Compendium of Reproach.  If his theory proves correct, then his success will bring us that much closer to a

solution for the Dark Age.

However, his request for a team has been denied, as more than one life was lost on the last expedition, and we cannot risk

another such contingency.  Furthermore, without proof that the Glyph Key is located in the Sunken Citadel, it would be 

unwise for us to overextend our resources in what could be unfruitful, despite the plentitude of valuables reported by Rafe.

Lastly, the council has deemed the citadel unsafe and forbids any Keeper to approach the sealed entryway in the Docks 

Sewers without prior approval.

irreparable damage to our situation.  We must guard our precious knowledge.

The Pagan Situation
By Keeper Tallo
The Pagans have begun to infiltrate into more areas, using decaying infrastructure to mask their presence.  They now have

sanctuaries in almost every district. Dyan, their high priestess, was the successor to the Pagan leadership after the wood

nymph Viktoria was desiccated. Dyan's is often seen with a staff, although it has not been available for study. Her 

commander, Larkspur, is aggressive and dangerous.  The two control a large number of Shamans who invoke the powers of 

plants both to hurt and to heal.  I believe the Pagans are able to accelerate plant growth such that it could rapidly 

culminate in a great imbalance. Recommend further observation.

Why hasn't council assigned a team for my expedition?  They know the dangers – how the area is swarming with strange 

creatures - else why lock the entrance so carefully?  How can I do it alone? Still, they must have their reasons.  The 

Sunken Citadel holds many secrets, and though I am afraid, I also long to journey there again! Most importantly, of course,

is the Glyph Key.  How many years has it lain underground?  Decades?  We were so close with the first expedition.  If only

we hadn't been attacked! We'd have the key now, and Keeper Soledad would still be alive.  Her death must not be in vain! I 

will retrieve the key successfully on this next venture.

I think I got it all figured out.  Cut up the big stone as planned, and deliver the package to Milton and Craig. When they

look inside, they'll see a bunch of gems and assume they're all there - never guessing I took some. And why not? Their 

plan doesn't work without a decent stonecutter. And they won't go to the City Watch, because they're the crooks who stole 

it in the first place.

Friday

Delivered the package.  Seemed to go well.   Milton was a little tense, but I reckon that's not unusual for a hoodlum.

Guess I pulled it off.

Couldn't sleep last night.  What if they look more closely at their share and then come back for me?  I'll hide the gems I

took until I'm sure I've fooled them. No one will look in Terces Courtyard, will they?  I'll stash them at the base of that
