The [Improved] Emperor's Guide  to

Tamriel

Being a description in both art and prose of the Provinces of Tamriel -- 
their people, customs, features of their histories, and other pertinent matter

Promulgated under the Authority of Chancellor Abnur Tharn and the Imperial Geographic Society


Dedicated to Honoria Lucasta

You played your lute and sang laments
On Rain's Hand I gave my intent

Bewitching me with blue eyes
Our love soars across the skies

Amid the lavender and flowers
Mara's glow and warmth are ours
You have the rosiest of cheeks
I'll miss them most in the coming weeks

Our Houses are now intertwined
The marriage parchment to be signed

A Bravil noble and a fertile wife?
I pledge to you my fealty and life

More divine than all the eight
Soon to return: I pledge you wait?

[Dibella wept, if this sappy triteness won't cause Honoria to flee willingly into another suitor's arms. Torch this dedication and begin anew.]
