For several weeks now the citizens of Yew have been suffering from the effects of the plague. So far they have been unable to stop the outbreak. Many have already been infected with the plague. In order to contain the plague and prevent it from spreading through the rest of the Kingdom: Queen Dawn has ordered the quarantine of Yew and its surrounding area. At least until the plague has been eradicated. As of today nobody is allowed in or out of the area of Yew! Armed guards have been posted along the roads leading to Yew to enforce the quarantine.
