The Bane forces are attempting to besiege Minoc again! After a seemingly stunning victory just a few days ago, it seems the Bane forces decided to try again rather than strike elsewhere. As of this afternoon, the battle is not going well. Too much blood has been spilled alerady twice before in the streets of Minoc to let the Bane have this old mining town! Being but a short distance from Cove, which was lost to the Bane recently, we cannot let the Bane consolidate their power in this region of the realm! All able-bodied defenders should make at once for the fair city of the north and deliver it once more from ruin!
