Embers in the Wind
Farlands - notes found in a bottle
From what we could decipher your Majesty, the notes indicate that the Farlands are populated by numerous strange brutish creatures and savage men with red skin. though potentialy a place of great wealth, apparently the natives are violent and bloodthirsty, as well as being thoroughly unwilling to acknowledged our clear superiority.
No more of the message could be deciphered, your majesty, but in the opinion of this humble Mandarin, we should not waste more of Zhong’s treasury attempting these explorations. The cost has grown too large already now that we are certain Gao-Zu will not return to us.
