"1 IF BY LAND"...2 IF BY SEA"...The British are coming

Discussion in 'UO Chesapeake' started by Eyes of Sosaria, Mar 22, 2012.

  1. Word has begun to spread like wild fire throughout the local lands of Sosaria that *eminant* danger lies ahead for the locals of Trinisic. Walk into any Pub in the land and all you hear cirulating thru the air are the words that the "British are coming", Button all the windows and doors shut.

    Word has spread far and wide that Lord Valyon of Britian succeeded in putting together a Naval Fleet filled with the likeings of Mercenaires and promises anyone who follows him good fortunes if they will take up arms against Trinisic and follow Lord Valyon on this epic adventure. Lord Valyon had no problems filling his fleet with ships and crew.

    Many of the Town criers, mainly in the Southern cities, are announcing the fact that the British fleet will arrive on or about 9 pm, this Saturday, March 24th. Upon hearing these announcemts, husbands are taking their loved ones to a safer location away from Trinisic and taking up arms, boarding up businesses, and doubling the guards (those that aren't in league with Lord Valyon), in the defense of Trinisic. Fortifacations are being re-inforced for a possible attack against the city.

    Mayor Zanku of Nidaros, a Paladen himself, has volunteered to display signal lanterns in a location that can be seen by all. If the British fleet lands troops on shore, the signal will be given as: "1 IF BY LAND". If the British are seen sailing towards the port of Trinisic, then the signal will be given as: "2 IF BY SEA". This will give the residence advance notice as to their plans of attack.

    Mayor Zanku was also seen racing through the streets yelling, "THE BRITISH ARE COMING", "THE BRITISH ARE COMING". It is hoped that all the residence hear this and take heed to those words.

    Below is a glimpse at what is happening in relation to the above.





    As you can see, things are being taken seriously. With the residence scrammbling in advance of this threat and wives, children and grandparents being rushed off to safety, the defense of Trinisic is the #1 priority. So as of Saturday night, be prepared to be confronted by Lord Valyon and his British Fleet.

    It is also hoped that others will join the Trinisic defense fleet stationed just off the tip of the bay, around the island. All hands are requested to assist in this manner.

    So sharpen your blades and grab your shields, for the tide of darkness lies on the horizon.
