The Scales of War

I’ve started this journal in hopes I can figure out what plan you have laid out before me. Two days ago I was found unconscious in the shrine storing the reliquaries of our ancient brothers, which had been destroyed. The only thing I remember is drinking with my brothers and heading home. I noticed the door to the storage room of reliquaries was open and went to investigate. The next morning they found me inside the room, two former brothers who were visiting reported seeing me enter the room in a drunken stupor the night before. Father you know I like to drink, but never would I go to that excess. A number of relics were destroyed and two were never found. I have been expelled.

My last day at the monastery. Master Stonefist came to me today, he doesn’t believe the accusations leveled against me but there is nothing he can do, and I have no evidence of my innocence. He presented me with a cask that he was going to give to me upon attaining my next rank, he told me to take it with me to remind me of my time here. I don’t know why he was so insistent that I take it and keep it with me, but I get the feeling you want me to as well father, so I will.

It has been three days since I left the order. Last night I was attacked by two men, I swear it was the brothers who accused me of destroying the relics. What strange events are occurring?
