The Tanaan Offensive is doing extremely well. The group members' abilities complement each other and everyone follows directions without issue. There have been no fights or other disruptions, other than a few snarky comments, including maybe one or two I let slip, but nothing any one of us can't ignore. It reminds me of back before Saphiara, when we used to work with the Grim on a regular basis. Things have certainly changed, but I didn't feel any differently about their philosophy then than I do now. I'm sure some would be surprised to hear that, but it's true.
I never expected it would be easier to fight side-by-side with Awatu than Naheal, though. Both of them think their decisions, their philosophy, is justified... Both of them believe they fight only for the wellbeing of others, and to protect what they care about. And both do irreparable harm while pursuing their goals. But I'd once thought Naheal's path ran parallel to mine. At least with the Grim there was never any confusion. I appreciate that about them, as faint praise as that really is.
It's good to have Kargron back. We've only had one long conversation, but it confirmed that he and I still share the same views for Sanctuary. He was my first officer and I feel better knowing he's behind me again. Cerryan, too, is around more now, and although he's certainly been under a lot of stress, I hope to see him come out of it stronger and more sure. One doesn't don the purple and gold without being tested, and over and over again at that. Vilmah's journals showed me that much. Hard to believe it's been almost a year since that, now... Actually, just a month away.
Siané has been doing well as an ambassador to the Alliance. I hope to arrange another meeting with Twilight Empire soon to strengthen our bonds. I should reach out to Donnelly again, or maybe one of the other officers. Also, Kiraleen. We were to have a gathering with the Outriders this summer but it didn't pan out. I need to make an effort to maintain these connections, although politics were never appealing to me. It will help to have Kex'ti accompanying me.
Always more to do. Guess I'll get to it.
