It is with deepest regrets that I must take my leave from you all for an indeterminate period. The work I have been doing for the Embalmers' Guild--of which I am not at liberty to disclose--requires me to travel to Tem-Akh. My duties there will require my full attention.
It has been a pleasure working with you all. I do not know when, or even if, I will be able to join you again. Should our paths cross, I look forward to that meeting.
NephethusRumors throughout Peraten indicate that specially trained embalmers from throughout the city (and even elsewhere) have been recalled to Tem-Akh, the old capital. As with Nephethus, many left before giving any indication that they would be gone for some time. Some notices included requests not to follow. The other embalmers who remain in the city to provide funerary services either feign ignorance of the "recall," or else refuse to discuss it.
