Each of your reports brings a smile to my face as I contemplate the implications of what you have accomplished. I am also appreciative of the texts you have acquired for me; one in particular is quite the page-turner, and I'd love to share some of my favorite passages with you the next time we meet. I long to receive more of these presents from you, but I am concerned that you might draw too much attention to our actions unless you are careful to cover your tracks. Some of the greatest victories result when the enemy thinks he has won the battle only to realize later that he has lost the war. The sweetest victories are those that the enemy never knew he was fighting.
Despite my efforts to stay away from Cheliax, I maintain numerous spies in its most beloved institutions. I recently received intriguing news through an Athenaeum contact that I intend to follow up. Of course, that means I'm sending you, my dear. Snatch these ancient prizes out from under the noses of Cheliax and its allies. Anything portable you can deliver to me. Anything larger should be hidden so we may recover it later.
I've begun hearing rather delightful rumors that the Pathfinder Society thinks me a free agent worth bringing into the fold. Apparently, when—despite years of loyal service—one is betrayed by her country, she becomes eligible for recruitment. Oh, you're pouting; I can tell. Don't worry. Should I decide to entertain the Society's courting gestures, it will be on my own terms and after I have decided how we might make the most of the arrangement. The Pathfinders were so terribly endearing when they decided to rescue me, so I don't believe I could turn them down outright. Until we make a decision, keep an ear open for any more news.
Keep me in your thoughts,
Paracountess Zarta Dralneen
The Pathfinder Society Organized Play campaign continues the Year of the Demon, its fifth season of Pathfinder RPG adventures. Keep the words of Zarta Dralneen in mind, and be on the lookout for opportunities to help Cheliax succeed in its objectives. When the time comes, ensure that you represent Cheliax proudly in Pathfinder Society Scenario #5–17: Fate of the Fiend and Pathfinder Society Scenario 5–23: Cairn of Shadows.
My Dearest Paracountess,
I am glad that my missives have brought you some comfort in these tumultuous times. The portents you describe have all of us uneasy, but I have no doubt that you and the Empire will survive. As my own house prepares for the coming storms, I shall of course continue to repay you for all you have done to shield me amidst the Society. Shall you decide to bargain with the Decemvirate, you may count on my services to draft the required contract. My colleagues in the courts of Egorian did not refer to me as the Bloodscribe without cause my dear Lady Dralneen. As a boon, I would also offer you a steep discount on my fee. I jest for you are well aware that your aid to me has more than equalled even my steepest retainer. As always, I shall inform you of any important information that I come across. Until next we meet.
House Abraxi of Egorian

I just have this strange feelin that weasel's going to be poppin his head around a corner real soon...and I'm just itching to channel some love in his direction!
