My eyes are old and tired now. I can no longer see well enough to write. I make this statement because this will probably be the last story that I tell in my life and I do not wish scholars of the future to discount it because it is not written in my hand. You shall recognize my style nonetheless, I am certain. This story was told to me by Askr the Loyal, servant of the Storm Lord and my childhood friend. He chose a more direct service to our lord, and for it has gained a lengthened life. This is his curse to bear. I chose the easier path, to live and teach among mortals. Fresh Awakenings as told to Felmire Brightshore by Askr the Loyal, scribed by Bont We ever battle to allow nature to take its course. We fight to retain the natural balance. It is often difficult at times, for this is a hard life to practice. We love animals and yet we must not interfere as a lioness stalks a beautiful young doe. So we must remain vigilant without overreaction. Above all, we must teach those that do not understand. This is my belief, though it is not shared by all. There are those who have heard of the discovery of the Unkempt and of their belief that any that would interfere should have their capacity to interfere removed from them. The most common method used is violent death. The truth is that our worship and our natures must be comprised of both philosophies. We must teach those that will learn. This is shown to us by the gentle nurturing rain and in the bright hope of the rainbow. It is the lightning and the ripping winds that evidence our lord's violence. The unnatural must be cleansed when it can not be taught.
