Let us always honor the fallen, especially the innocent who never invited violence and the heroes who gave their lives to protect those who could not protect themselves. The loss of life during the failed siege of Nerosyan was both regrettable and devastating. Nonetheless, our hard-won victory has strengthened our resolve and sired a new generation of battle-hardened crusaders to beat back the Abyss. That you valiantly aided the crusaders reflects well on you and the Society.
Over the months since that battle, I have worked alongside Sir Jorsal of Lauterbury, who is among the noblest souls I have found in the Society's ranks. With his help, we have repaired Nerosyan, secured Mendev's borders, and presented the Pathfinder Society's kinder image to the world. It is true that the Decemvirate does not always direct the Society in a selfless manner, yet even they can understand the benefits of being perceived as a force of good. Even a tyrant's heart can be coaxed away from evil if shown love instead of fear.
Every deed you do in the name of good reflects well on the Pathfinder Society and demonstrates that holiness is a virtue shared by the strongest agents. Each feat you perform in the name of the Silver Crusade strengthens the resolve of the Mendevian Crusaders, beating back the demonic armies so that future generations might settle Sarkoris once more. This is your chance to be a true hero.
The days to come will present difficult choices and difficult battles. I trust you will always show courage and make the right choices, so long as your actions do not threaten the lives of your allies. Let your actions be an inspiration to all—the faithful and the fallen, alike. The Pathfinder Society will set out for Jormurdun soon, and the expedition would benefit from your presence. In fact, with Sir Jorsal's support, I believe the other venture-captains may even choose you to direct part of the operation. Make the most of this opportunity.
The Pathfinder Society Organized Play campaign continues the Year of the Demon, its fifth season of Pathfinder RPG adventures. Keep the words of Ollysta Zadrian in mind, and be on the lookout for opportunities to help the Silver Crusade succeed in its objectives. When the time comes, ensure that you represent the Silver Crusade proudly in Pathfinder Society Scenario 5–13: Weapon in the Rift, Pathfinder Society Scenario 5–20: The Sealed Gate, Pathfinder Society Scenario 5–22: Scars of the Third Crusade, and Pathfinder Society Scenario 5–24: Assault on the Wound.
