Memo from Nisha Friedrick
The investigations and a distraction

My dear Professor Erasmus,

As you are one of the few to whom I've elected to share my vision with, so shall you share the burden of my… Concerns. There is a sabateur on campus. Someone wishes to cause great harm during the White Lily Fair. In that regard, measures are already being undertaken that should flush out the would be saboteurs.

I need more from you however.

I need you to embark on an expedition. There are certain things that we do not know. In order for our vision to unfold accordingly, we can take no half-measures. I need you to take the students that I've sent your way and… Encourage… Them to travel with you to Noctis.

Yes, I comprehend the danger. These students are not strangers to… Adversity. They aren't weaklings. You will take these students, you will spin this however you wish, you will discover what the area at the enclosed coordinates is hiding. Feint, spin, coerce and lie if you must but my sources say that a part of the Aegis was there. If that is true… What else could be there?

No. I detest surprises. Uncover what you can and report back. Oh and Professor Erasmus, you should be returning during the opening festivities of the fair. Were you to bring back something… Inspiring from Noctis, it would be greatly appreciated.

[Enclosed are a set of coordinates and the phrase "jewel-encrusted tiger]

Half of an old note

I've been practicing more and more ne-

after all, I should make sure Kane doesn't s-

The golden pony, that's the dumbest name I've ever heard in my life. Anyways, best not let Kane know. Back to my plan. I have the last thing so nobody knows I was the one who sabotaged the-                                                                                                             he will try to hunt me down.                                                     this cheap paper keeps ripping and its drving me craz-                           He is here.




He's hiding something.

I cannot believe I have just now realized this. One of us has misled us numerous times. He has witheld prior knowledge that would have been incredibly important. He is willing to sacrifice his own crew to get what he wants. And not only that, none have even suspected him of anything.

Marcus Erasmus.

This man led us to one of two places that I never dare be. He nearly, no, he did kill Cain. He knows every single one of our strengths and weaknesses and will abuse them for anything he can gain. 

There's no way he didn't know about the dangers of these parts. He teaches antimagic, and has special intrigue in Void magic. If he was acting under normal circumstances , there would be no reason to not mention something as important, both to our well being and to the interest of the class, as this. 

This leads me to only one conclusion. There's more to this visit than just some rare tiger. Erasmus has something he's hiding. One way or another, I plan on finding out what that is.

Everyone knows I'm a necromancer

They know. They all know. That golem… that idiot. I might need to run. To be honest, I didn't even expect that my secret to last this long. How could I not accept an invite from the university? I shouldn't have socialized. I should've stayed in my house and ripped that invitation.

I will need to learn how to use shadow manipulation to escape, and fast. I know I can't kill all of them.

My shift is almost over, I need to hide my stuff.

I have the materials, now i need a sacrifice like what she did with that Ryan guy and Kane. maybe I can repeat what I did when my parachute was stuck. I can stay down in the sands until they go or i could ask her to help me kill them. No, that's a stupid plan.

The many trails

 [unreadable] is de[unreadable]. So is his pathetic w[unreadable]. I need his Helmet for the next step. 

STEP 1: Survive and evade Kane [unreadable]

STEP 2: get a [unreadable]

STEP 3: If you are lucky (and I was very, very lucky) they will have an [unreadable]. Take it.

STEP 4: gather materials that I was told to get for [unreadable]

THE LAST STE[unreadable]

... And I'm dreaming.
I was a freelance writer.



I wake up years earlier, sitting in front of my typewriter. How am I to make a sequel to a book I tied so well together? Well… I could always follow the saga of the child… Okay, where to start…? "Are you going to cook tonight? I have a meeting in an hour so..?" Says my girlfriend, she's lovely… "Yes, sweetie! I'll cook dinner tonight!" I say, then I get up to a year later. I'm arguing with her, my newest book flunked. We have to find a different way to get money. She halfheartedly suggests piracy, then laughs. "That's… Actually a good idea. I can make money and get new writing material!" I say excitedly. She says seriously "Henry… I can't support you in this, if you are going to go through with this… I'm leaving." She leaves, and I wake up on the Dreadnought. Everyone is getting ready to take a air ship, I'll take a gun! I sit on the gun seat and then everything goes black. I feel fear, happiness, sorrow… I wake up.

Book of Beasts
An attempted translation

The Jewel-Encrusted Tiger or Asyrimat is a rare variation of the typical Rimat Tiger. It is only seen in the jungles of [untranslatable] to the west of the Elven homelands. This tiger has black and dark green stripes that assist it in [shadowing? blending? becoming?]… the dense foliage of it's jungle habitat. Fiercely territorial, the Asyrimat is quite [insurmountable obstacle].


…due to the high levels of wild background [mana, I believe] , the Asyrimat grows [again, mana chrystals, I'm pretty sure] on it's back and shoulders. It uses these to … [prey? victim? conquest?]… 



May the gods rain [terror] upon those would would attempt to harm this [untranslatable… possibly holy?] beast. [Something about numbers and symbols here. Can't seem to figure out what they are for but they may relate to the book of Atma-Ra-Seru. Wish there were some people who still spoke ancient elven around here.]

[It goes on here about those numbers and symbols]

…harvesting the crystals is a dangerous [undertaking? ritual? rite of passage?] that must be done with respect for the beast…

[There is just too much here that isn't translated…]

Frazures 3rd Note
I'm surrounded by Idiots

So I landed with WhatsHisName and Markus…

In the black sands.


Now there are black sand cats around us. 3 to be exact..

So I aim my gun at the one nearest to me. Like I'm going to risk my life if these things attack.

Stupid WhatsHisName got mad at me for aiming my gun!

Oh now Graves is here.. He'll know what I'm doing—

He just took my damn gun.


I'm going to die. Stupid people. I'm not going to shoot unless they attack me.
