It’s been over a year since you recommended I finish my learning amongst the inhabitants of this world – in the service of that wizard. You really should have seen the look on his face when his time came; I’ll warrant even your complaints would not have been so pronounced; and he never even had the slightest clue – foolish wizard. I was most appreciative of the opportunity left to me after that; I saw so many ways to bring about the effects of proper order in this world, I couldn’t decide which to choose – at first. Actually, it was quite a delicious puzzle once I solved it; or rather it will be once it comes to full fruition. For now the Assembly has need of me, though I can’t say for what with certainty. Rumors abound of a truce in the lower planes: that can’t be right, can it? Or have you been up to something? Wouldn’t surprise me in the least if you were; you always did have such fantastic ideas. At any rate, it seems that I’ve been assigned to help remedy one of your old complaints; namely about the fare that is now being dished up. At first I had thought they merely grew cold, so to speak, but even at the source they are mild in comparison to what some of your older tales suggest. At least there are some who are still willing … it would seem.
It’s a shame that this assignment had to interrupt my little venture, nothing much to start with, I have to admit; confounding the Greater Enemies pathetic attempts at kindness and benevolence – ugh! How disgusting! – though admittedly fun for a season (thanks to that amulet you gave me), is nothing when compared to some of the grander designs. However, the paltry selections here will not do to keep the necessary fires burning; but this new assignment may prove to fan a few sparks that have been found by that wretched witch. How delicious her conniving truly is! And even more delicious the irony of it all; if the basics of Devilry still hold true, which there can be no doubt that they do; how exciting it would be to get ahold of that contract. I know, I know, I must remember my place. Still, these events may set in motion everything we’ve hoped for.
Your’s in Evil,
