    Magincian Trading Co. Ambushed
    WarderDragon

    Word has reached us of a raid upon a Magincian Trading Co. [NMTC] Caravan last evening.

    The Caravan managed to retreat to a defensible position while mercenaries associated with House Freelance and NMTC sparred with raiders. The organization suffered minimal losses in the ensuing melee. Notes found on the corpses indicate that the men were hired thugs promised a thousand gold pieces for each head brought to their master. There is no word on who might be responsible.

    This comes right on the heels of the murder of a Magincian citizen.

    Lynne Zellinous and the Magincian High Council are reported to be investigating the matter.

    ...Sluggy is behind this raid? Why hasn't he at least been questioned as to his involvement in the raid?

    Hail Sosarians,

    Immediately upon hearing of this attack and murder, I and other members of the Britainnian Royal Council met at the site of the attack. We set Watches and hired local guards to preserve the evidence until respectful and lawful removal and burial could be arranged.

    These attacks are being investigated and those responsible shall be discovered and brought to Justice.

    Let all people be Forewarned and prepared to raise alarm, arms, and to bear witness of anything untoward they may see or discover. Travel in groups whenever possible. Seek armed Escort if traveling between Towns.

    Lord Elladan Faeryn
    Member, Royal Council of Britainnia

    He was not. Luckily Nellie and I had a very quick, Guard Hawkeye who, while technically a town guard is extremely loyal to those of us in Magincia. This loyalty is in stark contrast to the majority of the Britannian council and its guards.

    Hail Sosarians,

    Sadly, Lynne of New Magincia, conveniently omits the demand by the rebels that the Royal Britainnian Guards be removed from the Town and limiting their patrol to the Moongate, to which the Royal council agreed as an act of good faith toward restoring peace and unity, which only aided whomever this attacker was, or attackers were.

    Regardless, Britainnians including Royal Councillors, did respond and aid in securing the area.

    Your lack of facts would astound if I didn't remember this was coming from you.. Number one, we are talking about two separate instances. And Number two.. Can you tell me, Councilor, why it is that we (The Magincian's) had to contact Mistress Goodfellow instead of you doing it? I find it interesting that you, Lord Fig and your... Associate for lack of a better term "Claudia" were so quick to want to take action but lacked the togetherness you are supposed to present.

    I see many things, including tact are missing from your story as well.

    To Lynne,

    The Original Post in this Thread refers to a raid and includes a Picture [Which Elladan is in]! Naturally I and Id expect most posters refer to that. You are of course correct, for anyone to presume you intelligent enough to comment "on topic" would be a great leap of faith.

    The moment I learned of the attack and the corpse in the New Magincia Square, I sent a general alarm through Gen Chat. I spoke with James, Circe, Fig, Fern, Claudia, Lance Marshal, Chareos, and others. I don't recall seeing you anywhere around.

    We, myself included, took immediate actions. Yet in your first post in this thread you criticize foolishly those who were among the First Responders!

    Soon enough you will realize the errors of your rebel ways ... or suffer the consequences.

    Your babbling shall not provoke me. I acted Honorably, reasonably, and immediately. As did all who joined me that night.

    Elladan

    Okay folks, I"m concerned about this thread. Personal attacks are getting out of hand. I know it's 'roleplay' but if others can't post with that tone (PvP smacktalk) then I can't let others do it. We have the RoC.

    You can argue all you want just argue without belittling someone please.

    lol Sorry, I saw the House Freelance was "behind" this and figured...Sluggy is known as Sluggy Freelance, no?

    My apologies for the mistake.
