Cross posted from the Tribune In a shocking turn of events, it has been determined that the illegal orcish mining operation in fact did not contaminate Cove's water. A team of acclaimed Britain alchemists has tested the water and has deemed it safe for consumption. No toxic chemicals were found. Earlier today, the Chief Healer of Cove, Ingrid, apologized at a distance to the local orc chieftain for blaming his clan. Witnesses state the chief's only response was a dismissive snort before he turned and stomped away. Ingrid, whose patients now number twenty-one, vows to continue searching for the cause of the illness. She continues to believe that the cause chemical in nature, not some sort of plague. Relief shipments of food and water continue to arrive from Britain and the Red Ankh Society.
