Dear Hadewiga,
You were absolutely correct to advise against this journey. Why did the Dean of Archeology entrust its leadership to the hands of this quadroon? Who found the Violet Ruby of Aed Gynvael, me or her?
You must know the witcher has returned after all! The Ruby removed the barrier (as I held it would from the start!) and allowed him to explore the interior. Can you believe the witcher almost convinced that Duchamp to return to town to hire additional guards?! “We don’t know what dangers are in store for us.” Now there’s someone who knows how to pad his billable hours! Duchamp took to the idea, recalling the tale about the tomb being cursed. Yet I convinced the company not to put any stock in fairy tales. We must hurry, I said, for what if someone beats us to it and robs the elven treasury first? Because as you know, according to my translation the “most precious” can only mean one thing – the lost treasure of King Divethaf! Soon it shall be ours! (blood stains)
