*Scribbled on a parchment in charcoal*
I don't normally don't write on this board but there's a first time for everything.
Saturday night after we beat down on some lords father with a really big sword that I wanted but was asked to give back cause we all know Ilana will give me a lecture about it if I kept it…..anyway to keep this short. Me and several dragoons were called to a meeting with the Guardians of the dragon hunters. Bunch of pompous stuck up people that forgot to make introductions first before making their demands, I mean even me a simple smith knows better. Their demands are, We don't hatch the eggs, they don't cause us trouble. They were behind the attack a few months back. Mostly everyone partook in the food. Everyone lied about their intentions for peace. I made a threat to the one that attacked the fledgling dragoons at the Carin. Meeting will be in 3 months.
I lost a spear and sword in one gathering….I'm losing my touch.
From my observations, yellow sorcery was used to conceal several individuals' true appearances, black sorcery to prevent scrying was used, and possibly red and orange sorcery were used in order to prevent us from successfully attacking them and send them away. They are located in several different regions throughout this continent, and some lead lives as traders or likely even nobility. I intend to continue talks with them to see what more I can learn, especially after having such lovely Quinarian wine. Stay vigilant of these people, and stay safe. Oh, and if you find someone named Fenrick, let me know. Onward to the horizon, Ser Peaches Shirotsuke MahoKetsui of Corvancia Witchfinder General of Travance
Thank you Kieran and Darius, that cleared up my questions quite nicely.
I can offer copies of my tomes if we do actually exchange them, I would *love* to take a look at their books on the history of the Morgazi and make copies as that is a piece of knowledge that admittedly I am lacking in.

The group was shockingly as hospitable as Darius has mentioned above. They truly fear the power the dragons wield. Their goals seem to be based of just that, fear. Seemingly they want to "protect the people." They only know what they have been taught growing up as Lady S stated many of them were born into this cult, while others have sought them out. this of course is no excuse for the actions they have taken against one of our own, not to mention their very existence and use of Morgazzi artifacts threatens us all.... Simply put more information on them is needed. It is all too easy to go in blades swinging. I feel this to be a longer con and not so simply answered with just violence, which is ironic coming from me. With this in mind I have personally volunteered to be the point of contact between our two groups. If any wish to contact them, I ask you let me know. If their group wishes to get in contact with us, they will do so through me. Also for full transparency this is the only reason I agreed to said "truce" of not attempting to hatch the eggs. Bluntly put, I do not think the eggs would be able to be hatched in three months time so I felt it okay to agree to these terms. We need to be patient but on guard always. Any news or information that can be shared would be greatly beneficial. This is not just a Dragoon mater, the Morgazzi threaten us all. Keep your eyes and ears open Travance and stay safe.

To slightly expand upon this subject:
As many of you will be aware, the organization which was responsible for the death of Haytham and the corruption of the cairn via Morgazzi artifact reached out to us requesting a meeting. They insisted they merely wished to open a dialogue with us, and informed us that safeguards had been put in place to prevent violence from breaking out on either side. A number of us agreed to this meeting and were transported via portal to their chosen meeting place. The grounds chosen were set up to look like a lavish room furnished with all the fineries, though closer inspection revealed that the room was set up in some form of cave or underground cavern and illusion magic was at least somewhat at play. Sadly we were at the time unable to determine the exact location of the meeting place.
The organization met us with remarkable cordiality given the circumstances, going so far as to ply us with fine food and wine, and generally doing everything in their power to make it clear that they wished for no hostility at this meeting. The members of the organization, which calls itself the Custos Dracossi or the Guardians of the Dragon Slayers, were a many and varied lot to be sure, but they all had one thing in common; namely they feared dragons and wished to prevent them from returning.
I need not share all that was discussed at this meeting, as recounting all the fangs hiding behind the smiles on either side would not be helpful. They wished us to cease our efforts to hatch the dragon eggs, and insinuated that if we stopped our efforts then some form of partnership between them and ourselves would be possible. We responded that it was hardly within our power to guarantee any such thing, as the 11 of us who were present did not speak for all the dragoons. Therefore it was agreed that we would discuss this amongst ourselves, and would reconvene with the Custos Dracossi in three moons to return our answer, so long as for those three moons we made no active effort to hatch the eggs. Furthermore, it was agreed that an exchange of information about the history of the dragons and the morgazzi would take place between us, as it seemed that our respective information seemed to differ wildly from each other.
It need hardly be said that there is effectively no trust on either side here. We certainly do not trust that their intentions are as noble as they would seem to have us believe, since they effectively had no explanation for why they did not contact us for negotiations before murdering one of our own, and themselves admitted that it was a "drastic action" on their part. Likewise I would be very surprised if they believed us when we agreed not to continue our efforts to hatch the eggs. So we now have three moons of careful dancing before treating them again. I would ask that if anyone in their own personal pursuits comes across any of the following aliases, please inform us of this as soon as you are able:

*Not Caelvan* Wait....I'm a bit confused here. Are they referring to the Dragon Eggs to not be hatched? What threats were they making? Who lied about what intentions for peace?
And Guardians of the Dragon Hunters? Is this the group that had that Morgazi weapon a few moons ago?
