    [News] Britannian Royalists Capture Blackrock Smugglers.

    [​IMG]

    Tonight a Coalition of Britannian Guardsmen and Feluccan Mercenaries converged on the Crimson Plains of Altmere to capture merchants and tradesmen involved in the exchange of Blackrock.

    This comes just hours after the same batallion managed to intercept a Caravan transporting the substance from the lawless hinterlands of the Old World to the Realm of Her Imperial Majesty, Queen Dawn.

    Those captured are being interrogated in an undisclosed location in Yew.

    While it remains unclear where the volatile substance was destined - and what if any connection exists between the trading cartel and the Gargish Constructs that invaded New Britain in August - we have established that the Ore is being mined and shipped en masse throughout Britannia by the House of Lord Gideon.

    You might remember Gideon as the man selected to be Minister of Trade during the Cascan Regime. He was responsible for much of the taxation leveled on merchant ships by the Town Guard.

    Rumors persist that the Merchant Lord is not the sole dealer involved in the Trade and Exchange of Blackrock. There is a significant Black Market exchange for the substance amongst the Colleges of Magic. The Citizens of Britannia are encouraged to remain vigilant as the Britannian Guard plans its response.

    Glad you snapped a picture with Inferno's classy "prison game" comment. ;)

    I spent an hour debating which screenshot would be most appropriate.

    This is the price for dealing in illegal substances.

    Not only that, but the character was completely different! They had some kind of swap going on; must've logged out and logged back into the other character which caused the delay.
