At a meeting held this past Friday eve at the Jhelom Pub, Armondo Pasquel raised the question of pardoning and releasing Markos the Pirate. Readers should keep in mind that this same Armondo was one of the ones that originally insisted that the people attempt to capture some of the pirates that were involved in the recent attacks on the towns of Jhelom and Zento, and he was instrumental in the captures of the pirates, Markos the Pirate and Mario the (renegade) town crier. To justify the request for release and pardoning, it was submitted that Markos the Pirate has been co-operative (albeit under some severe interrogations) and his information regarding the Mythical Sea Dragons has proven accurate. After much bickering, it was finally agreed to release Markos. Upon his release however, the remaining emotions and anger of the crowd caused Markos to attempt fleeing on a nearby ship. This in turn seemed to incite the crowd even more. At that point it is uncertain just what happened to him. I have heard that he was killed and his body sank; but also that he was thrown overboard and drowned. Around the same time this semi-riot was going on in Jhelom, the mythical Sea Dragons being held in the western bay of Nujelm apparently escaped by means unknown. After much searching of the oceans; one was found in the area north-east of Vesper and herded into Vesper, another was located near Serpent's Hold and herded to New Haven. The New Haven detainee was later moved to Vesper, near the other one. During the searches it, was noticed that angering the Mythicals with loud noises (especially cannon fire) seems to bring about the appearance of some dangerous beings called Shadow Fiends. The third Mythical Sea Dragon (presumed to be the young one) has yet to be located, and at this time the search goes on, and has expanded to a larger area, based on a reported sighting by this same Armondo Pasquel.
