Armadyl chathead.png

This tale concerns Armadyl, the Lord of Justice and a male gay aviansie from Abbinah.

This letter is written to Armadyl from his second husband Obi'Sooth. The letter conveys deep love for Armadyl and an intense longing to be reunited, however, "Obi" understands that as a god, Armadyl is very busy fulfilling his godly duties. The letter is full of endearing quips towards Armadyl, such as his goofy inability to dance and his unmatched talent for neglecting garden plants. Despite Armadyl's intimidating status and persona as a god, years of intimacy have given Obi extensive knowledge of Armadyl's true, loving, caring, and slightly mischievous personality, which is recounted throughout the letter. Finally, Obi details his feelings of delight when he watches Armadyl speak about his children, Ra'ath and Tepras, and his family, Obi praises Armadyl for being such a loving father and introduces the idea that the couple should adopt once the war is over.

Family Matters[edit | edit source]

Caelyn Kadaan chathead.png

This tale concerns Annette and Caelyn Kadaan, a lesbian couple who are the primary characters in Heartstealer.

  • Go to Edgeville, and climb to the 1st floor[UK]2nd floor[US] of the house north of the Edgeville Bank.
  • Talk to either of the characters and choose "[See what's upsetting Annette]".

This conversation is about Annette's father reaching out to her asking to visit her and Caelyn for the first time since the couple met in Annette's family's vault. The letter tells them that her father had always known and has wanted to meet Caelyn, but Annette talks about her mother not being as accepting and whether she would join her husband. They also talk about the arranged marriage to a Lord Clutterbuck that Annette ran from when she left with Caelyn.

What's in a Name?[edit | edit source]

Angof chathead.png

This tale concerns Angof, a transgender elven woman from Tarddiad who features in The Light Within.

For members:

  • Go to the World Gate, but do not go through it
  • Just to the north-east stands Angof and on the ground near her is the book list of names.
  • Pick up the book and read it.

For free-to-play players:

Speaking with Angof reveals that the list was created by her and her husband, Maldwyn, as they brainstormed potential names for Angof, prior to her transition. She recalls how she struggled to choose a name that accurately suited her personality and identity. Some names sounded nice, but didn't quite fit. When questioned about the name "Atgof", she will explain that Maldwyn suggested it because it means "memory" and she was his happiest memory. With a brokenhearted expression on her face, she will explain that she chose Angof as it is more appropriate. All alone on Tarddiad after Seren's departure, coupled with the loss of her husband to the crystal shapeshifters, it is presumed she decided on "Angof" which is Welsh for "forgotten".

Good Dogs[edit | edit source]
