Greetings, Readers. An unmarked envelope was recieved by the Stratics Herald this morning. The envelope contained an anonymous letter, along with several sketches that appear to correspond to the tale depicted. The letter was written in a rough, albeit literate hand, on a piece of fine vellum parchment. We are reproducing the letter and sketches here for your reading pleasure. Two upstanding citizens responsible for reclaiming Lord Casca's lost dog! During routine patrols Friday evening outside the west Bank of Britain, a town guard spotted a mangy mutt sniffing around, as if seeking its' lost master. Upon hearing of this news, citizens Lady Pandora (S*RE guild) and Lord Zorax (RoU guild) remembered hearing of Lord Casca recently having lost his dog, Bartalbe. At the behest and encouragement from the citizens, the town guard approached the dog again curious as to whether it would come forth when hearing its' name called. Lo and behold, Bartalbe wagged its' tale and came towards the town guard and followed him around, proving it was indeed the missing mutt of Lord Casca himself! Lady Pandora and Lord Zorax offered to assume the guard's duties around the Bank of Britain in his absence while he hurried the hungry, and dirty, mutt back to Lord Casca. Once arrived at the bridge leading to Lord Casca's castle, the town guard requested entrance. Royal Guard's Hamilton and Carlo merely laughed and snickered and barred the way in offering no assistance at all. Some time later, Lady Pandora and Lord Zorax appeared and helped create a grand diversion, allowing everyone entrance onto the bridge! It was there, at the gated entrance that Bartalbe, mangy dog and previously lost companion of Lord Casca, was returned to his rightful master. On the return Journey, citizen Firefly (also of the RoU guild) distracted the Royal Guards Hamilton and Carlo, allowing Lady Pandora, Lord Zorax, and the town guard to leave unnoticed. All citizens would do well to honor and praise the actions of Lady Pandora and Lord Zorax for their prompt attention and fine devotion to the kingdom, and to Lord Casca himself! Huzzah! Huzzah! Before we had the chance to print the article, we recieved another anonymous sketch. It would appear that Lord Casca was spotted near Britain Bank, happily reunited with his long lost pet. - Joshua Harper, Baja Stratics Herald.
