There is too much yet to do to speak to everyone, so I will say it here: Thank you all who fought last night. You acquitted yourselves well, and we lost not one life, soldier or civilian. I could ask for no more.

And if you see Kili in the tavern, buy the dwarf a drink. Without his work with the scouts, we would not have had the knowledge to prepare so well as we did to survive this.

[Filter to Cassandra]
Your idea for positioning the archers worked perfectly in the Commons, you should know. Have you slept yet?

[Filter to Sera]
At the rate I am going, I will have a pile of goblin arrows as tall as I am for you at the end of the day.

The votes have been tallied, and I am pleased to announced that your two new Councilors are: Logan Howlett and Leia Organa. We would like to thank them for their service and cannot wait to work with them in this trying time.

In the event that either of these two disappear, the chain of command would then fall to Cassandra Pentaghast and then Susan Pevensie. It is our hope that we will never have to call upon them, but we can do nothing about that but preparations.

For the new Second in Commands, we went by experience, knowledge of this world, and seniority.
  • MEDICAL: Garrett Hawke
  • LAW ENFORCEMENT: Kaidan Alenko
  • CIVILIAN SERVICES: Minerva McGonagall
  • CRAFTS: Julie Power / Lightspeed (616)
  • AGRICULTURE & ANIMALS: Marie D'Ancanto / Rogue (movies)
Your patience and diligence during this time is greatly appreciated. As always, I am open for questions and will answer to the best of my abilities.

[Chatty to Susan Pevensie]
>> I need to ask a favor of you.
>> Veronica has had a notebook that belongs to me.
>> It is blue and says Mount Weather Lexicon on it in both the local alphabet and the one we use in my world. She was adding to it for me, and
>> As things are collected and redistributed, could you please hold that aside for me?
>> I can get it from you after our guard shift tomorrow.

[Chatty to Sera]
>> Put any arrows in anything today?

[Chatty to Cassandra]
>> I was glad to see you put yourself forward for the Council
>> I think you'd do well representing the people here
>> Who are you hoping to see take the other open position?

As best I can tell, Sergeant Pentaghast and I are the only sergeants remaining here.

Everyone else, sound off. I'll report our fighting strength to Command as soon as we have confirmed numbers.

If you know of any missing, report them on Messere White's post.

It's done, then?

Can someone please check on the Grounders that I unfroze? I need to make sure everything went well but I'm not allowed out of the bed.

In some ways, the PodGod must have been working with Andraste to smile upon us, as I received a chest full of magical items from my home. Lyrium - in multiple forms - was just one of the items.

I think it's going to work. I think my idea with the rite has the potential to work. This morning, I got ... a flutter. Almost. A glimmer of change. But I don't know if I'm simply not powerful enough or the stone magic is just too much for it to break through. I admit I'm being overly cautious, as anything that could harm the butterfly could easily harm Marie, and I will do everything in my power to prevent that from happening. It is not a full Rite, by any means, especially by the fact that Marie is not connected to the Fade, and neither is Jadis. It's... magic is especially fluid, and this is a bit like reshaping something that would otherwise be ugly.

I suppose I should come up with a name for whatever it is I am doing, now that I think on it. Something about stripping-

No, no. Too open to dirty minds running with it. Don't get any ideas!

Assuming the sky doesn't literally fall or freeze today, I'll be here for a few hours to answer any questions. (And before anyone asks "How often do you smash your horns into things?", the answer is "Often.")

An ominous scare tactic.

Additionally, there's a lot to be said for a well-fitting suit.

[ Sgt. Pentaghast ]
My concern is less that the Witch managed to get access to the comm system and more that she seems to know anything at all of the people in the mountain and their desires. Assuming she's never been inside and hasn't had a great deal of contact with us that hasn't ended in stone, I worry about the implications of her knowledge and what else she may know.

We seemed to have a similar mindset before. Do we again, sergeant?

Mar. 15th, 2016


My situation is handled, at least I think Well, I'm not entirely sure bu thank you very much. You can stop glaring at him, and I know you are because he said you were. Maker, half of you act like children. There are bigger things to worry about than my failed love life, now can we leave it at that?

This butterfly is ... interesting. Exceptionally powerful magic, but we already knew that.

I know we're aware of the cause now, but at the same time I'm uncomfortable with just waiting to see if she can reverse it, and have been looking into my own methods. With time and more research, I do think we'll be able to reverse it using methods similar to the Rite of Tranquility in our world, but I need to look deeper into the possible effects it could have on someone like Marie, I don't wish to cause her more harm.

For those of you not from Thedas, the Rite of Tranquility is a process that effectively cuts off a mage's pull to the fade and draws their magic from them. It's... well, a rather deplorable method to silence mages, and it was grossly overused, but if we could adjust it to merely draw the magic out without harming the mind, it may be enough to reverse the stone-spell on the animals and Marie.

Cassandra, you mentioned research on the topic? Do you happen to have any of that with you? Or if you and Cullen could go over the specific Rite with me, that would be helpful.

[ Sergeant Pentaghast ]
There is a great deal going on inside and outside of the mountain at present, it seems. Is there anywhere I can be useful?


We found Marie.

She's been turned to stone. And yeah, Edmund, I heard sleigh bells in the area.

So is there an actual plan for dealing with the one doing this?

Medical has found recent evidence of an infection that is resistant both to antibiotics and to magic. We are all under orders to report to Medical with any wound that breaks the skin, no matter how minor. Even if you would ordinarily call it "just a scratch" and forget about it, report to Medical immediately. It may mean your life or someone else's. Logan, I know this isn't likely to apply to you, as most any wound you receive would heal itself before you could even reach Medical, but please note if you find that the process ever happens to take longer than you would normally expect.

[Filter to Cassandra]
Entirely too many of our people have smirked at me today for it to be coincidence. I should have been more suspicious when a request to Varric was met with "sure" instead of "what's it worth to you?"

[Filter to Veronica]
I assume word of Mount Weather's latest bad luck has reached your department, as well?

Mar. 4th, 2016


I wish to reiterate what you may have already heard from your friends and peers: please do not accept any form of food or gifts from strangers outside of the safety of these walls, regardless of how harmless it looks or smells. We have reason to believe that such gifts come with a magical price, and until we determine our exact situation it is (as ever) clever to politely refuse any offerings from strangers.

Stay vigilant and careful as you come and go. I will more than likely redirect your questions to Rogers, Adaar, or the relevant Head of Department. Thank you.

Cassandra and I just received this report from Rescue & Recovery, which I've cut down to the relevant points:

"About half a dozen people were found in that frozen state, and another ten or so were killed. It looks like a battle of some sort, but we're not sure what happened.

We're sending R&R out to recover the bodies so we can give them proper burial. The statues are just like the others. Hard as a rock, no real way to draw blood or any other kind of medical test to see what's going on."

Is this in keeping with what you know of the witch's powers?

Greetings. As there has been some rearrangement of military personnel, I will now be your sergeant and leader of this squad. My name is Cassandra Pentaghast, and I am from-- well, you it is not so well-known in this world, but I am from Nevarra. My experience in fighting is extensive, and mostly irrelevant to this conversation as I do not hold much reliability with words and every reliability with action and attitude. I am looking forward to seeing what you are all capable of, and would appreciate a brief sentence or two about your fighting style and preferred method of combat. I generally fight on the offensive with sword and shield. I am also capable of dispelling magic.

I regret that this entry will be less about getting to know one another and more straight to business. We have reason to be concerned about the disappearance of one of our own, and upon the go-ahead will be investigating the affected area. A particular object was found outside of our compound. It might be a coincidence, of course, and I urge your discretion in this matter, but we must be thorough.

Mr. Pevensie, I understand that the stone butterfly that was found earlier this morning is representative of someone very specific with which you are familiar?

[Filter to Military Command/Seconds in Command/Sergeants]
According to one of my soldiers, the stone butterfly found yesterday may be indicative of a larger threat: Jadis, the White Queen of Narnia.

There is no reason at this time to be certain she is the cause. There is also no evidence that she is not, however. Requesting permission to take my squad to investigate further.

[Filter to Dorian, Hawke, B. Hawke, McGonagall, Adaar, and Pevensies]
Good morning. I am contacting the four of you because we may have a magical danger afoot, and you are the mages with whom I am personally acquainted.

One of my soldiers, Susan Pevensie, believes that the stone butterfly found yesterday may be a real butterfly that has been magically turned into stone. If that is the case, the only way she is aware of to reverse the process is through the power of a lion named Aslan. We think it prudent to investigate whether any of the magic held by others here might also serve to undo what has been done.

You four undoubtedly know more magic-wielders here than I do. Can you study the stone butterfly and see if you can determine what has been done to it and how it might be undone?

I've always been a fan of useful magic, for the most part. A tip of the hat, if I were to wear one, to whomever made the ceiling in my room look like it was open to the sky last night. As much as I hate feeling like I'm underground, there's a certain appreciation for getting to look up at the stars without the imminent feeling that you can get assaulted by nature at any given point.

Feb. 23rd, 2016


Alright I got three of these Sera-named 'tit holders' and two more sets of frilly panties. Claim 'em before my boyfriend burns' em cause he's jealous they're prettier than his.

Sorry, Warden. For dancing on your bar. I break anything, I'll fix it. You don't shit where you eat, people.

[Filtered to friends of Kallian and Alistair (feel free to assume)]

Alistair and I have some extremely surprising and extremely happy news. Ordinarily I'd want to tell everyone in person, but you know what a gossip mill this place is, and I don't want any of you finding out somewhere other than from us.

Alistair and I are going to have a baby. Late this summer, Christine thinks. As any of you who have any experience with Wardens know, the odds of this happening are very slim, so we're feeling like we just won a hundred sovereigns on a bluff.

And apparently drinking alcohol is not good for pregnant women, so I am now taking bids on my alcohol rations.
