A letter addressed to Vivienne lies opened on the table. A note has been added to the top which reads: “Josephine, darling, you should take care of this. V.”
My dearest Vivienne,
You cannot have heard the shocking allegations against the Inquisition, or surely you would never have been seen with them. Allow me, as a friend, to open your eyes. People are saying that Divine Justinia is, indeed, alive, but that the Inquisition—her closest advisors and most trusted servants—have orchestrated all this chaos on her orders. That it was Seeker Pentaghast and Sister Nightingale who sabotaged the Conclave in order to eliminate the opposition within the Chantry, and cut off the heads of the mage rebellion and templars in a single stroke. To save your own reputation, you must escape this acquaintance immediately.
With deepest concern,
Vicomtesse Elodie de Morreau

We need the support of the nobles to combat this rumor. I can arrange a few key visits.

Proving the Divine's death would just be used against us. We need find the source of this rumor.

We can't prove the Divine is dead, but we could escort people to the crater to see it for themselves.
I very much enjoyed your soiree, and I hope to see you at the summer cottage for our picnic luncheon next month. Do not fret about the ghastly things said about your associates; more reasoned heads will prevail and this foolish gossip will come to nothing.
A hundred shadows to chase. Heading to Lake Celestine. The nobility say it’s lovely this time of year.
Leading nobles to the crater was an… interesting experience.
Mallory had to restrain a few of them physically from signing their names on the red lyrium crystals. One of them wanted a charred corpse as a souvenir. Next time, I’d rather we dropped them in the crater and left.
