<Character>: Hmm... Amityvale and Moonridge are checked off... Atrea is circled... so is Falconreach... Inspect Chains
<Character>: What do they want with Falconreach?
<Character>: Again, with the magic chains... these are inscribed with a Z too.Read Correspondence - unlocks Cinquefoil's Rose Fortress quest.

As transcribed by Scribe Fragaria
(Page 2) Lady Jaania,
I appreciate your confidence, but establishing an outpost so near to Falconreach is sure to bring hostility. The town itself is not welcoming to our message yet, although few individuals have joined our ranks.
As more and more magical refugees flood into town I am confident the tide will turn, though. The town itself has been sacked three times over the years due to undead invasions. I cannot imagine that they would wish to rebuild again if their new magical residents start to display their true natures.
(Page 3) My Dear Hansa,
Your ambition to spread our message is, as ever, admirable. However, your posting near Falconreach is to ensure that should anything happen to the city or nearby, that we are prepared to secure it and prevent the loss of life.
We must not hope for disaster, only be ready should the inevitable occur.
Have patience. This position is integral to our strategy.
(Page 4) Lady Jaania,
I am not totally convinced of the methods used by the martial portion of our organization. We stand for a higher cause than common thuggery and I fear that the... harsher methods that some of the soldiers tend to display dilutes our message.
General Akanthus apparently believes differently though. My lady, I suggest that we reign in the harsher behaviors.
Otherwise I fear we will never win over the population of Falconreach.
(Page 5) My Dear Hansa,
I will speak to General Akanthus. It pains me to hear that the name of The Rose is tarnished by such behaviors.
The poor sneevils you sent us have, as you suspected, been enchanted for countless years.
My head researcher has begun the process of breaking the enchantments, and with luck, they will be free of their burden soon enough.
(Page 6) Lady Jaania,
I question the motivations of some of our soldiers. Many of our recruits are all too happy to just have a warm bed and sustenance.
Others revel in their newfound authority. I have had to suspend multiple recruits who were found being cruel to our charges.
I request permission to reduce recruitment quotas to a more sustainable level, lest we be overrun by opportunists and criminals.
(Page 7) My Dear Hansa,
If we can provide safety for those in need, then they need not be overzealous in defense of our cause. We must care for all those who seek shelter.
However, I understand your concerns, and while I cannot reduce the Rosewood recruitment quotas, I am sending additional captains to help vet your new recruits.
You may take charge of the newly completed fort, and leave the tree to your new subordinates.
