Wood chopping: Training 3/10
He has started chopping wood in the tavern. He can feel his hands getting rougher, as he grips the axe, and he may get stronger, but his skill at it is still lacking. Ugly chops, missed swings, and overswinging still plague him.
Stealth: Novice 2/10
He is small, and light, so he can quietly follow people, but he doesn't know anything about blending in, and not being seen. He was able to follow that group out into the woods. He was also able to follow Pod's group to the Sorrows and only later got found when the zombies came out.
One Handed - Axe: Novice 2/10
Comes with the territory of wood-chopping, but also from killing that badger. They compliment each other, the weapon ability and wood-cutting, so maybe he'll use an axe, maybe not. He was able to use it a bit when killing zombies.
Arm-Wrestling: Novice 1/10
A favorite of those around Queensport. He'll have to get better. His form is lacking. His strength, absent.
Climbing: Training 3/10
The skill few know about Sigmar. He's utterly fearless when it comes to heights, and so he tries to climb what he can, when he can. He's decently good at it, for a layman.
Fencing/Swordsmanship: Training 3/10
Jaden has started teaching the Boy about using a sword. Sigmar has taken it upon himself to practice his grip whenever he can, and makes big chopping motions with the sword in a proper grip until it feels comfortable and second nature. Still not able to stand up to real swordsmen.
Handling alcohol: Excuse Me 0/10
One glass did him in at the Ball. Never again.

His mother.
While gone, she is not forgotten. Why did she send me away? Maybe she isn't dead?

Podric (Luam )
Is this what a father is?

Lisbet (Elz )
She's been through so much. She gets hurt, and still tries to care for others. She... she told me she loves me... I don't know how to handle that... but I think I love her too.


Jaden (CloakedReaper )
The man has taught me so much. I don't ever want to disappoint him. I hope he doesn't think less of me... it's my fault I got caught.


Duke Charles (Lannis )
Sometimes it takes physical exertion to really get to know someone. But while Sigmar lost, badly, to the arm-wrestling contest, he can't help but respect the
Titanborn's natural strength and machismo. I've felt some distance to him since the whole assassin problem at the castle. Regardless, since we've left Queensport, I don't see him very often.

Duchess Elizabeth (NIAH )
I've gotten to know her a lot better since she started teaching Charlotte and myself. I appreciate it so much. However, now that we've left Queensport, I don't know what I'm going to do for my reading!

Charlotte (BrianAT16 )
While the age difference may be sizeable, Sigmar is glad to have at least /one/ child around he can play with and talk to. However Sigmar may be getting too old for play. I'll miss her laughter while I'm away from Queensport.


Isaac (Joseph12Q )
I don't even know his name, but the man was kind to me. He gave me a mended and altered tabard shirt to wear and taught me to take pride in my thoughts and dreams.

Joseph (JoeJoe )
I haven't really seen the man in some time. Despite his initial help, I don't know how much he matters to me anymore.

Bear-Cloak Lady (Blorbis83 ) (Slowly forgetting)
I didn't get her name, but she let me use her musty old bear skin. It's super warm.

Gil (Samwych ) (Slowly forgetting)
He made my leg feel better. And he seems kinda nice. Maybe shy. I don't like what he said about Pod, though.

Otto (Paint )
Although brief, he respects the older boy for the strength and nobleness that seems to surrounds him. He seems to be further on the path that I want to take. Maybe he has some ideas how I can become a squire? His Rede accent is thick though. I just hope that he doesn't think less of me for the incident at the Ball or my crying in front of him. I hope I will see him again soon!

Ayda (Ayda ) (Slowly forgetting)
Even though I didn't learn her name, she was nice enough to try and help me when I was sick after the ball. Why do adults drink those things? Yuck.

Kida (Elz )
The pink one. She's small. But I think she's ok. She isn't one of the big murdering bird-people yet. I wish we could see each other again!

Emily (Sizzix )
She seems warm and nice. I don't know who she talked to, but she convinced others to find my stuff... I think...

Maxwell (Rygan )
He found my locket! While my sword and axe are important to me, I have the one piece of my mother back!


Francis (BoredBrit )
I don't know why he thinks riding is important. My own two feet are pretty good. But the way he talks down to Pod seems to me that he has some role of importance around these parts. He did muss up my hair, and seems to want to push my dreams. I'll give him a shot.
I haven't seen him in some time. I wonder where he is?

Caerwyn of Blackstone (Rygan ) (Slowly forgetting)
I don't think I'll see the man again. While he wanted to help me become a knight, nothing ever became of it.

Raalvara (Raal )
I've seen her a few times, but I wish I could know her better. I heard she really likes Valiant!

Florian (Cap ) (crystallized memory more than a relation at this point)
I liked that he did well in the tilts against that guy Cymic that beat Pod, and he seems like a good-enough knight to follow, but I don't know why Pod doesn't seem to like him, or why he doesn't like the Kanes.

Schmidt (Boofenshmirtz )
He's kind of like what I want to be some day. A squire under a good knight. I got to see his sword, and it was super heavy, but something doesn't feel right about him. He doesn't seem like he's very nice. I haven't seen him since the meteor fell.

Reivos (Niko )
I haven't seen him in awhile, but I don't think he's really /that/ bad anymore. At least, he doesn't eat people.

Uriel (BoredBrit )
I don't know what to think about him. He wants me to fight my demons. I don't know that I can. Why does he want to be involved?

Arianne (Lily_ )
She healed my wounds, but I'm still broken inside...


Arthur (Morbid ) (Slowly forgetting)
Why was he asking me all those questions. He probably thinks I'm somebody else he's looking for.

Gael (Scardrac ) (Fadded memory at this point)
I only saw him the one time. But he looked like he was going to hurt Pod in the cathedral. He seems like a dangerous man.

Fearful of
I used to think that dark rooms, cold alleyways, or an empty stomach was something to be feared.

Now I've encountered real fear:

The Butcher...


Holes in the ground
Badgers come from them.


Who needs them?

(Assuming he learns how to write, otherwise these are assumed to be thoughts he has during the day).

(Still illiterate, but he did lay down in his new bunk and think about the events for the days, so it may read more like a train of thought)
Winterfeast 24, 2305

This bed is comfy...
That fire is pretty warm too.
How did I get here? I mean, yeah, that nice guy gave me his cloak and fed me and put me in here, but why?
I'm just Sigmar. I don't belong in this palace. It's a place for nobles and other big people. I'm just... me...
He told me he wants to find my place here and do work. I mean, I don't mind work, but I want to learn how to fight. I want to protect people.
Maybe he'll let let train?
Well, this bed /is/ comfortable, I suppose I'll sleep and see what he wants, if not, I'll keep moving on.

Winterfeast 28, 2305
We got to Haven a few days ago. Lord Podric seems to have some business here, so I had to tag along. I don't know what is we're doing here but something is wrong.
Pod's eyes glow yellow.
Is he a demon?
I got to try tea. That's a first! It burnt my tongue though.
Also, this tabard shirt is clean! But super itchy!
Shame I didn't learn the one-eyed guy's name.

Winterfeast 29, 2305
I keep meeting all these strange men, but I never learn their names!
This new guy didn't /look/ that old, but he seemed like he had some sort of huge weight on his shoulders (Francis).
I don't know why he thinks riding is sooooo important, but I guess he wants to buy me a horse.
I don't know what he was talking about with Lord Podric, but they seemed to be super serious about it.
I only heard the words 'Thorne' and 'Linlea'.
I've never been to Linlea, maybe Lord Podric will take me there someday?

Winterfeast 30, 2305
I was out in the village playing. I was a knight and I had to kill a terrible monster. But Pod found me playing and wanted to talk to me.
He mentioned that he thinks he may be able to get me trained, but that it wouldn't be him!
He wants to give me a sword, a horse, and some light armor. I still don't know what he wants out of me. I don't think those rads that were given to me by the man named Francis will be enough.
Pod also told me the 6... tenets, I guess they're called, of Valiant. He told me that he follows Ignis and that he can't really teach me about Valiant. Aren't they all gods?
I hope that I get to go to Queensport soon. Maybe Duke Kane or this Francis will take me on?
Snowdown 1, 2305
Pod dragged me to Queensport.
Well, I mean, I wanted to go anyway. It might be my best chance at squiring, then I can make mom happy!
But they were climbing all over this cathedral and I don't know why they would do that!
But Pod left me.
There was this strange jerky man, why did he want me to go to that hunting lounge?
Those men who took me didn't seem to want me there.
They kept talking about babysitting and called me a "lil' shit".
They don't think I heard 'em, but I was upstairs and heard them down through that big hole in the floor!
So I left them.
Went back to the tavern to wait for Pod.
I hope he understands...
Snowdown 2, 2306
Another day in Queensport, and another day of adults doing weird things.
This time there was some sort of archery contest happening inside the ruined cathedral.
Isn't that place supposed to be holy or sacred ground or something?
Why do they keep doing things like that?
I mean, then again, there is that brothel down below.
Adults are weird.
But at least I got to climb it when Pod wasn't looking.
They keep acting like it's dangerous, but I'm light! It won't break under me!
Besides, I can get into spots they can't even get into!
Kinda met the Duke and the Duchess.
I don't think I made a big impression with them.
Pod kept apologizing for things. I don't even think they were all his fault, neither.
But they kept talking about and saying back things about that Francis guy.
I don't think he's a bad guy, he just doesn't seem to be able to find his way, that's all!
They were going to talk about me, but I guess it got too late.
At least I get to sleep in this nice, soft bed and dream of mama.
Snowdown 3, 2306
They keep moving me around.
Now I'm in more of a servant's room. The bed is still comfy though.
I've been exploring this place when no one is looking.
There's /so many/ rooms in this palace.
I answered the gate a couple of times when I found myself over there.
It seems that Lisbet has a number of men that come calling on her.
As long as I sneak back to my room in time, they don't know I'm gone.
Lisbet took me to the tavern tonight. I met some strange people:
Some guy who wanted to play a gambling game with me.
Another guy who seems to be a mercenary or something. He said he could train me.
I don't know if I can accept his offer. I want to be a knight, and he isn't a knight.
But I do think he could teach me to fight!
There was also a man outside who made a giant... block? of ice.
I went back to the palace with too much on my mind.
Snowdown 4, 2306
I've been moved out of the palace.
I don't know what I did wrong?
Did I make the Duke upset with me?
Lisbet says that it wouldn't be fair for me to replace the Duke's squire, but I didn't want to replace him!
I just wanted him to take me too!
Maybe I'll take that strange soldier man up on his offer?
Snowdown 5, 2306
I spent almost the whole day inside.
I mean, Lisbet /did/ say I should chop wood or something to be helpful.
So I'll chop wood.
I'm not that good at it.
But I did do some.
Pod doesn't understand though.
I /want/ to be a knight, but he isn't helping me.
Why isn't he helping me?
Snowdown 6, 2306
Pod said he'd help me learn to read.
It is something that knights can do, right?

I followed a group out of the tavern.
I mean, I was bored.
They went to the castle and tried to get Lisbet to go, but, I followed them agian back to the tavern.
They keep talking about some exploration or something.
When they left the tavern, I grabbed that fire-wood axe and followed them.
I still don't know where they're going.
Deep through the forest I followed them.
Over hills.
Under trees.
Sticking to the shadows.
They didn't know I was there.
Until I stuck my head in a hole.
Some furious and ferocious thing lunged out at me.
I didn't know what it was until Joseph told me.
Apparently it was a badger.
Something as big as me, and furious enough to fight bears.
It bit me in the leg. I didn't know what to do, I just swung and swung.
I must've done something, because it was on the ground and Pod had picked me up when I came to.

I'm now in the Hunter's Lodge.
My leg hurts.
But I did it.

I killed the beast.
Snowdown 7, 2306
I woke up in pain.
Joseph's bandages seem to be working, but I can't really go anywhere. I'll probably just have to hop.
There's this strange woman, I think she told me her name, but I'm not really sure I heard it. Raalvara or something.
Weird and foreign.
She said she could heal my leg.
I don't know how she could do that, but she seemed jumpy.
Like she didn't want people to know she was there.
I hopped downstairs and Lisbet made me some sort of cheese bread.
But I tried those weird purple pickles I found last time I was there.
They're kind of sour and taste like brimstone.
I'll have to try them again.
Snowdown 8, 2306
I was able to put some weight on my leg.
But some goat-man named Gil showed up.
I guess he was sent by that Raalvara lady.
But my leg feels so much better after Gil looked at it.
I don't know what he did, but Pod said it was magic.
What kind of magic does that?
I got to arm-wrestle the Duke though.
I lost.
But I will get better!
Snowdown 9, 2306
A boring day in the Hall, so I went out for a walk.
My leg is doing /much/ better today, but it's not perfect.
I found Pod talking to the Lady Kane at the castle.
She walked us over so some nice district of Queensport where the houses look like castles themselves.
She gave Pod one of these castle-houses!
I didn't know people would just /give/ those away!
Snowdown 10, 2306
I started training with 'Jerky man' Jaden.
I think he still may want to kill me after my question earlier, but he showed me how to grip my sword.
I'm going to keep practicing with this sword if it kills me!
However he seemed to gather all of us together for some sort of questioning thing.
I don't know why we did that...
Snowdown 12, 2306
I went to the Ball.
Or, at least I /think/ I went.
My head is killing me.
I think I did something stupid.
I also think that Pod might be mad at me, or worse, disappointed in me.

I'll never touch that stuff again as long as I live.
Snowdown 15, 2306
I tried practicing my stances today.
It led to Pod and Jaden showing me some sort of practice bout.
at least that's what it was supposed to be.
It looked more like a bar fight or like those times that guys got thrown out of my mother's brothel.
But at least I got to work on parrying with Jaden.
Only for them to leave me with that bird-man again.
I /know/ he killed a bear! It's meat and fur and bones are in the Hall's kitchen!
What's the say he won't kill me?

I hope that Francis is ok and that they all come back safely from the trial.
Snowdown 16, 2306
Bored. Bored. Bored.
I've already practiced as much as I can when no one is around.
However, the Duke and Duchess stopped by.
They asked how I was doing and who else was around.
I mentioned Reivos eating bears.
They took me to stay at the Palace while Jaden and Pod are gone.
The Duchess did play a mean trick on me though...
she said that Reivos and other bird people /do/ eat people.
I believed her at first.
Snowdown 17, 2306
Jaden is apparently back in town.
So they want to let me go back to training with him and staying in the Guild Hall.
I was enjoying reading all those nice maps in the library, but I'm really confused by this one map.
It has some drawing of Queensport on it.
But it's not the Queensport I'm in...
I don't know what this second one is.
Unless it's a /really/ old map.
But the streets are all wrong.
At least I can resume training.
Snowdown 19, 2306
While practicing in the Guild Hall, Otto stopped by.
He wanted to see how my training was going.
He gave me his old training sword.
It's an old wood sword, but it looks like he loved it.
It's really heavy though...
I also snuck off again to follow Pod.
They wanted to fight the undead.
I didn't know that at the time...
I'm just glad I brought the bow with me.
It came in handy.
But I can tell that Pod is really mad this time.
I was lucky that I didn't get super hurt, Lisbet looked like she got hurt.
We made it back to the Queensport spa.
I enjoyed all the hot water!

But those birds were there.

I guess I can deal with them.
Something was wrong with Lisbet though.

Maybe it was that alcohol?
That stuff was terrible...
Snowdown 20, 2306
I have been training a ton in the Guild hall recently.
I'm not happy with my jabs.
My slices are ok now.
But a lot of... them showed up.
One tried to show me how to jab.
He handled my sword like a spear.
I don't know what they were saying, but it seems like Reivos was... correcting him?
They left almost as soon as I saw them.
That weird spear hold works though...
The small pink one dropped a feather.
I found it.
It's pretty...
Snowdown 25, 2306
I don't really know what happened.
I was watching the jousts.
They were so exciting; the flags, the horses, the shiny armor, and the tilts!
Pod lost his and was kicked off his horse, but it's ok.
I wasn't sure who I wanted to win though... that strange guy from the Ball, Florian, or that prince I fought with against the zombies.

But it doesn't matter.
There was some sort of firey rocks coming down from the sky.
I thought they were the fireworks, but Pod carried me away from the field.
Lisbet got hurt a little,
and my arms are scratched up.
We saw a dead woman.
I... don't know...
Why did she have to die?
I stared at the rocks that were falling from the sky.
I don't know why, but they helped me.
I found a really pretty one.
It's in my pocket now.

But it smells funny.
We went to some super large building in Storm's Landing.
I heard them call it the Cathedral.
But this is /way/ bigger than the one in Queensport, even if that one is just a big pile of rocks.
That guy who defeated Pod in the tilt smashed open the metal rock from the sky.
I looked in it.
There were rainbows and other lights inside.
So he smashed it again.
Some shiny rocks were inside, I think they're called crystals.
One glows.
Lisbet tried to look at it in the light, but then she started to try and eat it.
What a weird thing to do.
But did it taste good, I wonder?
Pod and this Cymic guy chased everyone away.
They went upstairs and I followed them. That squire that works under Florian was there.
Eventually a bunch of guys with big swords came up.
One was that Florian guy, another was this guy Pod kept calling Gael.
I didn't know who the others were, but they looked dangerous, and they kept looking like they were going to attack Pod.
I decided to go sit down then, but then Pod made me leave.
I guess he'll have to clean that chamber pot I found upstairs and used...
Outside I ran into Jaden and the Duke and Duchess. Lisbet was there too. I don't know where she ran off to.
They said something about the Nether and going off into it.
I think I'm strong enough to do it!
I told them I killed at least 20 zombies in the last raid!
But they sent me back to Hilde in Queensport.
At least her pies are good.
Snowdown 26, 2306
I don't know how long I'll have to spend in this tavern.
Hilde's pies /are/ good, but I get bored so easily.
I keep going back to the Guild Hall to work on my stances and my swordsmanship, but it's not the same when people aren't around.
I didn't get to experiment with those fancy dice that Hilde keeps around though.
But watching Lisbet get trounced by the Duke does seem weird.
Not that she lost, but that the Duke would do the beating up himself.
Snowdown 30, 2306
I saw some men get off the boats at dock.
They seemed well-armed and well-sure of themselves.
I don't know why they're here, so I followed them.
They went up to the Palace.
Apparently they wanted help avenging that Gael man.
I didn't know he'd been killed.
I'm freezing out here.
Snowdown 31, 2306
I went on a mini-pilgrimage to the big cathedral at Storm's Landing.
I wanted to find the shrine to Valiant.
I succeeded in finding it, but I don't know what to do.

How does one pray?


I later went and explored the other shrines.
Maybe they would've given me a hint how to do it?
I don't like this dark room that I found.
The shrines here are... evil... dark... something is twisted in them.
One of them is Skraag's shrine!

Why in the Name of the Gods is /that/ thing in a cathedral?
We FIGHT the undead. WHY is it here?

Skraag needs to die.

I went to the cathedral at Storm's Landing. I heard there were interesting things happening there, but I also wanted to find Pod.
However I saw something, but I'm not sure what I saw.
It was some sort of giant.
I think he said he served Valiant!
I asked him how to serve!
He left before telling me...

Why can't I be working towards something?
Springrise 20, 2306
I went with Pod to some place called Compendium. He says he's going to some sort of meeting.
I wasn't to be let in, but I decided to listen through the door.
I couldn't hear anything...
However, there was a perfectly good window that I climbed up to see into.
The old leaded glass was a pain, but I could make out some of those people.
They all look powerful and important.
However I feel on my butt.
They let me in, but Pod sent me upstairs.
He seemed upset, but I didn't care, there were maps!
I stared at quite a few, including one for some city of Helbed.
Weird name.
But I fell asleep at that table.
Springrise 22, 2306
Met a little girl. Her name is Charlotte.
Apparently Jaden has been taking care of her.
I never knew.
But as we were talking in the main hall, the Kanes came out cover in blood. The Duke had a knife in him...
Springrise 23, 2306
I worry greatly about those assassins.
However, Charlotte and I found a bunch of hiding spots around the castle.
No one will find us.
Ate too much again...
Springrise 30, 2306
I don't remember too much about this day, but my head hurts.
Pod told me I capsized my boat in the rapids.
That I must've hit my head on a rock or something.
I just want the pain to go away.

Truebirth 21, 2306
Why does everyone want to hurt my head?
I was in the tavern most of the day, reading that map of Storm's Landing.
However, as I left, I turned around to the sound of these two dark strangers following me.
They smacked my head. Hard.
I woke up in some sort of cage.
I want to go home.
Sporebloom 1, 2306
I don't know how long I've been here.
I only know that I've watched the Sun rise and set many times.
A week?
These people. I talked back to them. I thought Pod would come sooner, but these people... they... did things to me...
My back is ablaze with pain. I don't know what they did, but it was a white-iron rod with a shape on it.
It hurts when I move. It hurts when I breathe. It hurts when I don't do anything at all.
And now. Now, it stinks.
I think I'm going to die here.
They cut me.
They beat me.
I think they used chains...
The screams, they're non-stop.
I heard them elsewhere.
I was surprised to learn they were my own.
Why do they do this?
I don't know what I did.
But they seem to blame me.
I... I blame me...

I should have been stronger.

Sporebloom 2, 2306
I hear sounds.
However, I always hear sounds here.
The fortress groans.
I swear it's alive.
Screams haunt my nightmares.
My pain is huge, but I don't know how much long I can hold on.
I'm seeing things...
My head is hot...
They're opening the door again... I think...
I can't fight them anymore...
I hope they end it.
I can't take any more.
I'm ready.
I'm sorry I failed you Pod.
(At this point Sigmar was rescued by Nwalme blargtheawesome and Gerry Jeroxia , however, Sigmar doesn't remember. He wakes up in Sanardu with no memory of how he got there).

Sporebloom 4, 2306
Why am I alive?
Everything hurts.
I want to be dead.
Am I dead?
No, that pain in my back is there.
Why won't they leave me alone?
I'm broken...

Sporebloom 7, 2306
I wish I were dead.
I failed.
They may have healed my wounds, but I can feel them there...
beneath the surface...
The laughing, the blood, the fire, the darkness...
I'm not me.
I can't be me.
But then again, /that/ me failed.
So I'm no one now...
I'm not even Sigmar...

Sporebloom 10, 2306
How long have I been in this tavern?
I don't want them to feed me anymore. I don't want to go outside.
But they knocked on the door.
This... Emily and some man.
I guess his name is Maxwell.
They apparently went to that hell hole, my personal prison.
They found Otto's sword...
my locket!
Oh mother! I'm so sorry, you raised a failure.
The tears stream down my face...
However, I feel a small part of me has returned.

Sporebloom 11, 2306
Pod dragged me to Mockingbay.
I haven't been here since I first hit my head.
It's ok.
But I saw Pod carrying Lisbet.
There's blood.
By the Gods, I hope she is ok.
She's on the opium again.
She's never herself when she's on it.
But she told me she loves me?
I don't know what that means?
I don't remember my mother really telling me that.
Pod knows.
He knows about my locket!
But he says that I'm some son of the Duke of Thorne.
I don't know if I believe that!
I'm just Sigmar
I'm just... a bastard.
I can't be a duke. I don't even know all those fancy forks and spoons that the nobles use!
Sporebloom 29, 2306
I tagged along, as I usually do.

We went back to where all the undead were, but this time it was to a fort that I've never seen.
I think it's a shrine to Ignis, because of all the white stone and gold, but the place looked... wrong.

However, I didn't have time to look at the place too much, as we were attacked by the undead.
I don't know why this time was so bad.
Everyone was falling left and right. I thought I was the only one really left.
I fought lots of regular undead, lots of those husk ones, and lots of those horrid drowned ones!
Those tridents were the worst! One got me in my leg!
Pod lost most of his armor, most of the others were badly hurt or knocked out.
What about Uriel?...
Lightshine 11, 2306
It's been a few exhausting weeks since the fort attack. I now know that Uriel is alive, but he survived by the grace of the gods.
I've spent most of my time by myself. I don't know where Pod is most of the time and Lisbet seems just as flighty.
At least I've gotten some good chances to work on my swordsmanship and my languages!

As long as this doesn't turn into an assassin, I support the tiny orphan.

Shoot, there goes his entire character arc! I was going to get revenge too with my dual blades style!
I'm going to have to temp ban you. If you had listened to the podcast you would know assassin ninja orphans are a nono. We shall see you again in 2020.

Hey, I didn't mention anything about ninjas!

Now, a samurai with a wakizaki! /That's/ what I was aiming for!

First journal entry. He can't write yet and doesn't have a journal, but these are his thoughts as he lies in the servant's quarters bed, trying to deal with 'all this'.

Will also be updating relationship with Pod.

Updated journal entries for yesterday and today.

Sigmar has been up to some crazy antics in Haven, and seems to be meeting all sorts of new people.

Relations updated to include Isaac and Francis (Joseph12Q and BoredBrit )

Updated again for the events from yesterday, ala, his journal.

Sigmar hopes he gets to go to Queensport; sooner, rather than later.
