*At first light, messengers are sent all across the land with large posters* DISAPPEARANCE OF RICARDO AND URS Ricardo has vanished from his cell apparently kidnapped by the Bane, or possibly obliterated by them. Urs (Queen Dawn’s husband) has been kidnapped from his farm in Yew, which may or may not be connected. All citizens of Britannia are asked to seek out any and all information which may lead to their location. This also requires that we keep watch on the Bane, in Magincia and elsewhere. Irvyn Middlethorn Duke of Trinsic, Servant of the Realm, Defender of the South, etc etc The personal seal of the Duke of Trinsic: An eagle flying, holding the branch of a thornbush in its claws; surrounding are the words "Mine honour is my life; both grow in one; take honour from me, and my life is done."
