Dear Silent Towne Crier,
Glad to see you've escaped your captivity, if only temporarily.
We were beginning to think you were either ambushed in the forest, carried off along with She-etc, bribed into silence by the Traders Guild, or *gasp* ... defected to new frontiers!
But ... it's only hoarseness and life's entanglements after all!
Now, you speculate about the true identity of Mr. Otto Mani; he may really Bee a she who is masquerading as a he so she could Bee the sultan's one and only ..... and Otto Mani, whether he or she, seeks the potion of loyalty? This makes sense. This Turkish Trader seems naive and not at all wise to the ways of the world.
MayBee she (or he) has been in captivity too long?
Tell the sultana that if she fails to procure the potion of loyalty, perhaps she should consider selling the sultan's concubines (at a fair price, of course) and bribing the sultan to be good. Or maybe she should arrange for the Bee Holder to launch a sting operation?
As for the Lady of the Unicorn; tell her we have her message and have already begun work on her Ad.
And thank you!
