    The M2M3 is coming a little late this month, but we still want to have it! This

    THURSDAY FEBRUARY 20, 2014 @ 9pm Eastern

    the city of Minoc will be hosting an extra special alchemy competition. Be sure to come early so we can get the demonstration of what we need you to do! Alchemy skill is not required and every one is welcome to participate as we need people who can think outside of the box!

    In fact, due to recent threats against Minoc and myself we are asking all swordsman and mages to come as well. Your services may be required to help us fend off any unwanted attention this public event may bring.

    (Note: This event will include a continuation of the Regina Storm arc from previous Vesper events)

    Due to unforeseen circumstances this event has been POSTPONED due to a malicious Pirate Attack. During set up the Alchemy demonstration by our special consultant on loan from Vesper the nefarious HOLLY BLOODHAND tried to make true on her threat on my life. Luckily I was able to survive (with only a few death robes to show) but we are not able to continue the crafting competition at this time. This attack, coupled with the fact that the slag around Minoc has been SET ON FIRE we will need to rethink this competition and plan a better time for it. Fear not Minoc Citizens, the Minoc Volunteer Fire Brigade is making sure that no buildings sustain damage by this unnatural fire.

    While our warriors fought bravely to fend off the dastardly pirates and flame elementals Captain Bloodhand snuck into the The Forgery and absconded with 10,000 iron ingots! Lucky for us she dropped a "well worn journal" that contained a series of riddles. After reading the book our adventurers believe that contains clues that reveal the secret code to unlocking a Secret Chest recently uncovered at what is believed to be Captain Bloodhand's hideout during the capture attempt and unscheduled execution of Regina Storm. Currently, our stalwart adventurers are hunting down these clues in hoping of robbing Captain Bloodhand of her most treasured possessions!

    The race is on, who will be the first to unravel the riddle and win Captain Bloodhand's prize? Will they also be placed on the short list of who to kill along side Governor Victor II? Only time will tell!

    I'd just like to add based on the screenshot that Poltroon is one of the best insults of all time. That's all.
