I am Ysra the Crow. It is due to providence and my lord’s wishes that I detail flora and fauna, strange beasts and monstrosities, the fabled and supernatural.
In accordance to Lord Havishem of Willshire, my lord, he gave me leave of my humble property in Harold’s Lot to seek out and record the known and unknown to the best of my ability. The words written herein are gathered through greatest peril and dedicate themselves to the general known world. I take great care to honor my lord’s request and keep accurate descriptions of what I see. Though I cannot read or right, my memory is sharp and full of wit. I oversee the scribes that write each word and testify to their authenticity.
