    Hello Catskills,
    Some news from the Catskills EM Website:
    Commander Kanlocke waited impatiently for Sergeant Zeke Goldmoon to arrive. It was strange for the young Sergeant to be late for a meeting as he was typically prompt. She tapped her fingers against the desk repeatedly thinking to herself that he had better have a good reason for his tardiness. When her patience had nearly ran out and she was about ready to leave her office for the general barracks to inquire as to his whereabouts, the door to her office opened and the Sergeant entered.

    He hurriedly stepped to the front of her desk and offered a salute. She looked at him and saw an expression of angst on his face. She made him hold his salute a moment longer before returning it. Relaxing slightly and returning his arm to his side, Sergeant Zeke Goldmoon apologized profusely for being late.

    "My apologies Commander. I did not wish to keep you waiting. Unfortunately, I was detained longer than expected in Cove and the return trip was met -"
    She interrupted him. "Spare me the excuses, Sergeant Goldmoon. If you cannot manage to keep your schedule when given such a simple task, perhaps I should see fit to replace you with someone else who can? I need disciplined solders serving underneath me. You have gotten off to a rocky start with your new duties, I expect this to change - immediately. Understood?"

    "Yes, Commander. Understood", he responded to the obvious reprimand with a gulp.

    She weighed carefully how harsh to be with the young Sergeant, seeing strong potential in him as an officer, and hoping to draw it out in a constructive way without coddling him along. New officers needed to be shaped, molded, and developed, and she would find a way to do just that.

    Commander Kanlocke continued, "Sergeant, the reason I asked you to come here today is because I need you to contact the various RBG regiments stationed at New Haven, Umbra, Wind, and the Abyss Outpost. It is imperative that I speak with them. Go there and inform the local Captains, and others within their local regiment, that I require their presence here in my office on Tuesday the 29th at 9:00PM EST. Once they arrive, I will be demanding to see, in person, the specific areas these regiments patrol and defend. I will also be inquiring as to any specific threats currently facing each regiment and how the Royal Guard can continue to provide adequate support for these regiments. See to it, Sergeant."

    "Consider it done, Commander.", replied Sergeant Zeke Goldmoon, "And what of the task given earlier in Cove, shall I finalize my report for your review by tomorrow morning?"

    "I want your official report on my desk by sundown, Sergeant. Mind you, I said sundown. Not a moment later or you and I will have something more to discuss..." The Commander flashed him a look that displayed her serious demeanor when she spoke those words. "That is all for now, Sergeant. Dismissed".

    Raising his right hand to his heart, the young Sergeant saluted the new Commander, turned around, and walked from Commander Kanlocke's office towards the general barracks where he would begin writing his official report about his earlier assignment in Cove.

    Event Name: Meeting with the RBG Regiments
    Event Day: Tuesday June 29th

    The sun was beginning its journey downwards to the horizon, but deep within the mountains, the City of Wind was just truly beginning to awaken.

    With the afternoon rest period following lunch over with, mages and alchemists were returning to their work. Herbalists were chatting amongst themselves and the few children of the city played amongst the waters of the fountains.

    Slipping past the various dragons and liches that plagued the outer regions, a young man clutching a scroll exhaled slightly upon reaching the relative safety of the main entrance.

    A couple of shopkeepers nearby laughed amongst themselves at the sight of him, remembering when they to looked the same. Having braved the mountain passes and magical guardians just to reach the haven of all magic.

    The man consulted the scroll, and turning his attention to the Inn, walked slowly into it.

    Casting his eyes towards the name on the scroll again, he inhaled slowly and waved a hand slightly to gain the attention of one of the Inns caretakers.

    Smiling a bit now, he asked where the lord of the city might be found.

    With a barely suppressed grin, the caretaker pointed right behind the messenger.

    "Well well...What, do we have here?

    Closing his eyes, the man turned around. Reopening them slowly only once he was certain he wasn't dead. He had heard stories of this man. And now in his presence, all the stories came rushing back into his head.

    The two looked at each other for several moments. The messenger wary, and the other seeming merely curious.

    I.. I was bidden to bring you this message sir..mr..uhm...lord.

    Raising a single eyebrow in his typical mannerism, Va'lis regarded the message bringer with a hint of a smile. Though for all intents and purposes, it still scared the young man.

    I do not believe being called Sir Mr.Lord of all things, would go over very well. Let us just go with Va'lis. I trust that is the name you were given? He grinned widely as he took the scroll.

    "Yes, it was sir. Though why they asked me I do not know.. He trailed off as he noticed that Va'lis was both, not frowning or listening any longer.

    "Hmm...won't do at all, this message that is. He glanced up again. "Stay here, I'll return in a moment with a message for whoever sent this one. And with that, he merely vanished.

    Several moments passed by, the messenger wondering if the man who had given the first message to him, was still out in the mountains...If not it would make delivering this one a tad difficult.

    A tap on his shoulder startled him out of his thoughts. Turning he saw that it was Va'lis, holding out a scroll to him.

    "Here, deliver it and hopefully this whole thing can be fixed."

    Nodding, the messenger turned and ran off again. Glad to be out of Va'lis' presence.

    Rubbing the bridge of his nose while leaning against a wall, Va'lis wondered to himself how this meeting would go.

    ~To Commander Kanlocke~

    In response to a message I recieved regarding a meeting this eve, I must sadly inform you that I will not be able to make such a meeting until, at the earliest, roughly 10:45 in the eastern skies tonight.

    If this time is a problem for you, I am certain we can both agree to a more suitable time for each of us.
