    [EM News / Event] Guardsman Dunn Captured by the Bane Chosen.

    Dear Citizens,

    First of all, I would like to thank you for taking up the quest to find out the fate of the guard recruit Trystan Dunn. Unfortunately, the worst has come to pass; Dunn is being held within a camp heavily guarded by the forces of Virtue Bane. A report of a person that was able to sneak in and out of the camp fellows.

    ….As you make your way south of the shrine of Sacrifice (Ilshenar), the banners flying from the top of the tents is the first thing you see as you approach the camp. The camp itself is protected by a palisade. When I tried to estimate its strength, it felt like no wood I have ever encountered. I doubt a dozen men would be able to make a dent to it. Given the nature of the forces involved, magic is likely to be the culprit for it’s seemingly supernatural strength.

    However, as we walked around the perimeter of the camp – trying to be as light footed as possible – we discovered a point of weakness. At one of its corner, the walls just did not quiet mesh up. That might be difficult to imagine, how does a wall not mesh up? As I said before there is probably magic involved. More importantly, we were able to make use of this gap and teleport ourselves inside.

    This is the general layout of the camp or what we could make out of it within the short period we spent inside. There is one large farmhouse, likely crawling with Bane officials. I am not familiar with their ranking structure, but every army has its captains and generals! Then there are the two tents. As luck would have it, we saw a person matching the description of Trystan Dunn being dragged inside one of the tents. Rescue was out of the question as the grounds are heavily guarded and we were but two.

    We hope that this information is of some import for any rescue attempts being planned for the poor chap. I do not envy his position and am glad that I am writing this letter from the warmth of my humble home.

    PS – The gap in the wall seems to have been fixed as we were not able to gain entry again.

    I urge the defenders of Britain to spare any time and strength that can be possibly expended given the current circumstances to help rescue Dunn. The recruit is the responsibility of the Town Guards as he was at the Faire Grounds under our direction. I have posted a single scout to keep an eye on the camp. Perhaps, we can ambush one of the Bane and gain means to enter the camp.

    Sincerely,

    Town Guard Yosh.

    Note: Bane guards will be found outside of the camp. Take a guard down to see if you can obtain something of use to enter the camp. The guards will be found outside of the camp at various times, including:

    Thursday, February 3rd - 7 to 8:00 PM PST.

    Friday, February 4th – 2:00 to 4:00 PM PST.

    Friday, February 4th – 7 to 8:00 PM PST.

    [IC.]

    Tristan Fel - known to his fellow rogues as Exedur - waited for the Emissariat to dismiss himself from the room before he stepped from behind the curtain.

    In his hand he held an envelope. A red wax seal closed the vellum fold bearing the crest of the Knighthood of the Silver Serpent.

    Fel heard a metallic click behind him. The Queen's chosen returning for something. He set the envelope on the desk and slipped behind the curtain and out the window behind it before the door swung open.

    To the Lord Elias.

    You are advised to mobilize a squadron of Guardsmen at first light.

    Farmer Bartholomew of Skara Brae and his daughter, Chrissie, require an escort from their hiding place and shelter in Britain under the watchful eye of the Town Guard. If discovered the two will be killed for their sheltering a Britannian Soldier.

    The Bane Chosen have captured Guardsman Dunn - who was staying at the Farm - for his knowledge of suspected Bane Spies amongst the Britannians.

    Below are instructions to the Secret Cellar of Bartholemew. See that these are forwarded to the Commanding Officer of the Guard.

    Turning over the envelope reveals a second note - instructions to the cellar - and a Silver Serpent Pin.

    Turning the pin over reveals the name ...

    OOC - okay you sneaks! PM me how you can still get inside the camp please. Also, try not to go inside because you are not meant to be in there. We are not going to pull any of the mobs if we see people inside. Already wasted several days trying to fix this!

    *hates walls*

    BTW - bit of a back story for anyone interested. Not sure, if it will come up. Trystan Dunn was captured because he was being overzealous against people he suspected to be bane loyal. He was seen harping on Black Jenny few days before he was "banished" to Faire Grounds on privy duty by the other guards. Now far from the safety of Britain, one of the Bane loyals picked him up. Maybe they hyped him up as someone important to justify it. However, it was more of a personal revenge type of a thing.

    The town guards should have probably put it in their log book! Not sure if they did!

    The detail regarding privy duty issued to Recruit Dunn was recorded in the Town Guard Log book 11 January by myself.

    This was Recruit Dunn's first day of formal duty. Town Guard Flair commanded Recruit Dunn to perform said duty for two weeks. It was agreed that upon successful completion of said duty Recruit Dunn would commence training for the SRT. I do not believe that there is a single guard that has a reason to be involved in foul play as you insinuate!

    I am not.. ahem.. privy to knowledge concerning the misbehavior of Recruit Dunn toward the citizen known as Back Jenny. I would be shocked if any Town Guard or Recruit behaved unprofessionally towards any citizen of our lands.

    If any citizen knows of such misbehavior by any Recruit or Town Guard I would ask them to step forward and speak to Town Guard Flair and report specifics.

    In Service,
    Town Guard Leithia
