The LETTER reads:
Dear Captain, Scholar, Mercenary, and the rest;
If you are reading this then we are pleased to presume that you have safely completed your perilous voyage and are standing in the Temple of the Ancient Weapon. Congratulations! Since you are there anyway, be dears and fetch us the Ancient Weapon, that we may turn the tide in our little unpleasantness with our dastardly foes. In return, as discussed, we will grant each of you one wish (plus a sandwich for the highwayman). Thanks again!
Fondest hugs, kisses, and etceteras,
My Majesty, the Sovereign
