The Western Seal: Summer Campaign
At the Summer Campaign 16 Jahre n.d.E, Ambassador Dagger went with the Baroness Sayeh of Sapphire Isle to the Realm of Roses Pan Mythodean Trade Summit to introduce her to the trade of Mythodea and to do business on behalf of the E.B.Co and the soon to be reinstated Protectorate of Lunorth. There, with a stroke of luck, the Voice of the West was in attendance. Sayeh treated with the Voice first until the Ambassador could complete the trade deal he was working on. After, the three spoke of meeting up in the near future to discuss another matter to discuss the apology to a lady of the West and a lady of the East.
Later during the campaign, Ambassador Dagger attempted once more to deliver his apology to the offended parties of both the West and Eastern Seals. At first, the Baroness Sayeh of Sapphire Isle accompanied him to meet with the Voice of the West where the three discussed the transgression. It was the Voice's wish that Dagger includes a knight of the East when he went to the offended party of the East.
After delivering his apology in the West, Dagger entered the Eastern camp searching for the offended party. When the party was not found, the ambassador spoke with a member of the Eastern Court who happened to be the Neches'Re, Zyghmundt von Steinkreuzwas of the East though Dagger did not know that at that time. The offense and intent to apologize was explained and on the final day of the campaign Dagger made his way back to the Eastern War Camp and delivered his apology on bended knee before the offended and the Naschesre'.
With great luck, the apology was accepted and the Neches'Re content with the actions taken. It is the hope of the Embassy that relations may continue to improve in the future with the East. The Ambassador claims to have learned from his past misdeeds and for the sake of Blackwood and the Realms' overseas interests, let us hope that that is true.
In one's blighted vision
Animal leanings had arisen
My condolences for the offended...
Vulgar were the words recalled
Every proper woman was appalled
Rancid humor did her honor forsake
Yet blind to one was one's mistake
Starlight in a lasting night
Orator writes of the plight
Recall, if you will
Rampant were your words of swill
Your actions must be apprehended...
In a morning's realization
Keen to the allegation
Noted were the remarks last spoken
Exhaled were the tones outspoken
Engaging were one's intended thoughts
Ludicrous and harmful were comments wrought
Humbled by one's foul tongue
Unflinching is the apology sung
May these mistakes be remembered
Blighted is one's pride dismembered
Ladies of the Eastern (and Western) Seal
Elements before you I kneel
Declaring these wrongs comprehended...
The East Blackwood and Realms Embassy
Grian Quihenya, Western Seal
Also during the Summer Campaign to the World Forge, the Ambassador and on occasion, the Baroness met with various Western leaders including the Nyame and Archon. At first, the opportunity to introduce Baroness Sayeh to the Nyame of the East and West was taken. With the Ambassador by her side, Sayeh was introduced to both Nyames.
Later, Dagger had the chance to speak with the Archon of the West during a moment of pause in military action. The Ambassador spoke of the talk that was held between the two near a year prior concerning the Embassy within the Western Seal. The Archon recalled the conversation and the two discussed some of the details but the Ambassador also included his need to formally apologize to the two ladies he had offended during the Schwur Feier des Westens the prior year. The Archon gathered one of his ministers to continue the conversation concerning the Embassy.
The Ambassador spoke with the West’s minister of trade who sent for the Ambassador of the West to join the conversation. During the conversation, the Archon returned to ensure that the dealings were going swiftly. A court scribe was also brought in to discuss the format a contract with the Embassy could take and a decision was reached. Dagger would return at some later point to sign and seal the contract with the West once it was finished being written.
On the final day of the Campaign after the final battle and the delivery of both apologies, Ambassador Dagger signed the contract granting the East Blackwood and Realms Embassy a plot of land with a large building within the Western Capital of Grian Quihenya.
