Alpha Four, or A4, is an enigmatic figure from the turn of the first millennium of the Common Era (C.E.). Although the formality of his education is uncertain, we know he studied military history, martial skills, languages, history, philosophy, mathematics, religion, and wrote extensively. Evidence suggests he was a ranking courtier and military advisor in the turbulent environment that was England one thousand years ago. He likely served in Æthelred II’s court (and possibly Sweyn I, the Danish sovereign who briefly sat on the English throne in 1013 C.E.).

“Books are magical keys to open up worlds and change perspectives.”

“Sometimes fighting against evil is not a choice, but an imperative.”

“A glimmer of hope, even a small one lingering tantalizingly far in the future, can help you face the trials in between.”

“The significance of each change of season is easily buried in the smallest of life’s mundanities and trivialities. Yet, the true consequence of time’s passage is there, blaring within the subtle disguise of a whisper for all who would listen.”
Alpha Four, Far Forest Scrolls Na Cearcaill

“Jealousy has a way of clouding logic.”
Alpha Four, Far Forest Scrolls Na Cearcaill

“A man’s perspective is limited by the brevity of his existence.
Even living deliberately, how far up can we reach?
Standing on our miniscule patch of time, how far into the future can we see? How much of the past can one truly understand?

Yet, only a recreant spends their precious drops of sand before dropping back
into the abyss lounging in indulgence, not striving for understanding, knowledge,
answers that those of us
scourged/consecrated with consciousness
should seek with unconquerable passion.”
Alpha Four, Far Forest Scrolls Na Cearcaill

“A glimmer of hope, even a small one lingering tantalizingly far in the future, can help you face the trials in between.”

“Once metal hits metal and battle begins no one wishes they had practiced less!”
Alpha Four, Far Forest Scrolls Na Cearcaill
