My dearest Professor Waddlesboro, I am in desperate need of your assistance!
Dr. Amelia Diggsdeep, is an elven archeologist of the highest caliber, academically speaking of course.
Long devoted to the ancient texts within the academic tower of Lightsworn. She has dug deep within its volumes and through rigorous diligence uncovered the location of the ancient halfling city of Snacking.
She has recently abandoned her beloved library on a quest to discover the hidden treasures within the city, but her exuberant youth can only take her so far. She has sent you a letter requesting your aid with the many riddles and puzzles that her books just can't seem to answer. Enclosed within her letters, you are titillated to discover, are all the clues needed to solve these puzzles. Using her vast network of colleague's and magical correspondence, she hopes you can help her unlock the ancient city's secrets and maybe those of some other colleagues as well!

I'm sure you are surprised to be receiving this correspondence, considering the way we last parted. It was not my intention to trouble you or burden you further with sentiments. I can assure you, I am but reaching out in a purely academic capacity. But should you find this letter too burdensome, I completely understand if you wish to disregard it. Though I could not lie and say that wouldn't sadden me greatly.
Surprises abound for I have also left Lightsworn. Several months ago, I had stumbled upon a unique tome authored by Turkin Stuffin, a halfling of great age. Within Stuffin's recipe for Gooseberry pie, I found the first mention of the lost city of Snacking. Lost far to the North of Trameea, within the wildness of the forests of Rhubard.
Deciphering its exact location took me several months, and even longer to convince the Explorers Guild to take me. But I have finally found Snacking. Crumbling into the forest floor, it is half buried, but its treasures are still intact I think.. You always encouraged me to seek my dreams, I regret it has taken me so long to seek them too.
We have been here several weeks and I have found myself in a quagmire of secret doors and silly traps. But perhaps the most frustrating is this note found sealed within a chest made of jade dragon skin. Presumably, to keep it safe from fire I suppose? I have included it in this letter.
Long have I pondered its contents, but I fear I can not make heads nor tails of it. I know you are quite fond of riddles and perhaps you may make headway where I could not. I understand that your time is so precious. Please write me and tell me all about your studies. I miss conversations terribly. Thank you again.
P.s. Give my fond regards to Bartum.
