From the Great Lakes Tribune at gl.uorpc.net: Tonight's meeting of the High Council of Britannia was preceded by rather strange series of events. As many sat within the Jerred Ghyss Civic Center waiting for the 446th session of the High Council of Britannia to commence, Lord Galen and Councilor Beauvina encountered the much-adored goblin lass known as Zox Greatsnapper. (Zox is known for sponsoring fishing competitions and most recently for writing haiku.) Zox said she had heard crying emanating from somewhere in Compassion Grove, eventually narrowing it down to the Headquarters of the Britannian Armed Forces (B.A.F.). The little goblin zeroed in on the cellblock on the second floor, the current home of the alleged spy Cidur Klomp. Cidur Klomp had been arrested by order of Grand Marshal Polynikes of the B.A.F after an attack on the 340th session of the High Council by orcish warriors in the employ of the Hythloth Conclave. A daemon by the name of Reo Uro had been recruiting orcs as fodder in the Conclave's campaign against Britannia. Fortunately, the forces of the Security Ministry have since dealt with this particular problem and slew Reo Uro shortly after the attack on Britain several weeks ago. Ariakas of the Royal Knights of Virtue informed the High Council of Zox's interest in the orcish prisoner and they postponed their session. When they arrived at the cellblock, they found Councilor Beauvina with Zox outside Cidur Klomp's cell. Strangely, Zox was trying to pick the lock on the cell door with a carrot. The goblin claimed that the orc was sad and scared, all of which Cidur readily agreed with. Apparently, the orc was frightened by the feather pillow on the bed in his cell. He believed it was a warning that he would one day be killed and plucked. Chancellor DaKaren assured Cidur that this wasn't the case and that Justicar Fl'Gith would ensure that a hearing was held at the next available opportunity. Unfortunately, Zox somehow managed to open the cell door and the duo attempted to escape the cellblock. The impromptu prison break ended with Zox's swift capture and arrest. Residing in the cell adjacent to Cidur Klomp, she is also awaiting a hearing before the Justicar. Sadly, this wasn't the only arrest made tonight. Setatabon of Newcastle was arrested by order of Chancellor DaKaren for 'terrorizing the prisoners,' an act frowned upon by a society based on Virtue. He was taken to the prison in the Yew Militia Fort in Rat Valley to await judicial hearing. Look for updates on the status of these cases in the near future. As always, the High Council meets every other Monday at 8pm CST, in the Jerred Ghyss Civic Center in Compassion Grove (12o 45'N 38o 2'W Trammel).
