    [EM News] Rally to Defend Britannia's Heart

    "Attack under the cover of darkness…"

    Documents recovered from the Daemon Scouts in Britain warns of an impending attack! Citizens and friends of Britannia – rally to defend its heart.

    Fortifications have been raised around West Britain. All citizens have been asked to evacuate East Britain and take shelter within the fortified city. All bridges connecting western and eastern part of the cities have been blocked off, except for the Virtue’s Pass.

    Three temporary checkpoints have been earmarked to set up watches. Each of the check point is connected to the courtyard behind the main gate with a communication device and a gate:

    1. Britain’s Town Guard Garrison

    2. Road leading from the cemetery to The Hammer and Anvil

    3. Virtue’s Pass

    All defenders are urged to gather at the main gate of Britain, except for few who volunteer to man the check points. Furthermore, the town guards have been asked to keep the portcullis down and to keep the inner city wall manned.

    Queen Dawn will inspect the fortifications and discuss strategy with the defenders at 7:45 PM PST, Friday August 6th.

    A number of makeshift fortications have been constructed on the roads leading into West New Britain. East New Britain is currently quiet.

    News Update - 6:00 PM

    The Town Guard of New Britain is dropping the porticullis separating Northern New Britain from the Trade District. Citizens wishing to enter the Britannic Capitol are advised to do so from the South via the Way.

    The Town and Royal Guardsmen of New Britannia are being recalled from the Countryside. There has been no appeal to neighboring states although word has it that the Duchess' Personal Guard and Emissaries of the Empress of Tokuno are making their way towards the Capitol.

    Farmers and Serfs from the Britannies are advised to evacuate their homes and take refuge behind the Walls of Castle Britannia.

    Hail Folks,

    Sadly, I was sailing back from Southern Isles, and was unable to reach Britain in time. However, Cousin Aerowyn assured me she would stand with Britain's Defenders against all threats. Aerowyn has since reported to me that a great number of Defenders gathered to face whatever threat had caused the Alarm.

    Queen Dawn divided the forces among 3 chokepoints and bore Her own Sword in Defense of Britannia. Auric Dragonslayer and Angelina Bina joined Aerowyn in a trio of Defenders prepared for come what may. Zeline, an immense Greater Dragon of incredible power, came in answer to the call of Angelina to aid in Defense of the City.

    With little warning, unspeakable monsters, creatures spawned of pure evil seemingly hewn from Blackrock, descended upon us. Many were dealt mortal wounds. Healers were taxed beyond all limit, and many required resurrection lest their Spirits depart forever.

    The battle raged on, and just when it seemed the Defense of the Northern Way might falter, Queen Dawn raced to our aid and rallied our efforts. Steadily we divided the invaders and subjected each to withering attacks until the last of them was returned to the earth from whence they spawned.

    Alas, only after the fighting had ceased was it learned the foul creatures were but distractions to obscure a theft of a Crystal of great Power and Importance.

    All Citizens are cautioned to remain ready should another Call to Arms sound. Surely the stolen Crystal MUST be reclaimed.

    More Soon,

    Lord Elladan, Paladin of Trinsic
