    Captain Aino Nystad's Town Guards, known for their nobility, selfless duty and loyalty to the City of Britain have recently come under intense pressure from Lord Saius and their rivals on the streets of Britain the Redcap Gang! Recently Lord Saius confronted Lady Aino at the Town Hall of Skara Brae and accused her of forming a private army and assisting the Kingdoms that are independent of Lord Casca's rule such as the City of Avalon and Kingdom of Dawn.


    The Britain Town Guards are lead by Corporal Brackus who is often seen making his rounds around Britain in the evenings, a stoic figure in platemail with a flowing blue cloak and sharp halberd. Brackus makes a devoted effort to keep the people safe and is assisted by: Leonidas, Calyndrell, The Sphinx, Highlander, Rick Flair, Urlik Fangborne, Newt Longbow, Yalp, Jules Hexecott, Euterpe and Lord Sibley.

    Meanwhile, On the streets of Britain, deadly Redcap gangsters have been murdering, robbing and collecting extortion money from anyone who dares to go to the West Britain Bank. The appearance of the Redcap gang is closely linked to the arrest of Cymidei Fier, Mistress of the Dark Tower, for the murder of Kellendil. Known Redcap Gang members include:Mikie, Yourself, Jadon Thur, Morgance Fier, Anne Scarlett, Igo the Fragrant, Flos the Pirate, Calis, Calyndred, Lanfear and SoMeOnE.


    Cymidei was overheard vowing that the Redcap Gang would kill five victims in Britain for each day she was confined to the prisons. During Cymidei's trial, the prosecutor Countess Malabelle was assaulted by an unknown assasin and burned, witnesses were also intimidated and bribed. In an unexpected turn of events, the victim Kellindil condemned the charges against Cymidei saying that she was not guilty of the murder.

    After a key prosecution witness, Xel the Wanderer, failed to appear; Judge Ferris of the Yew, reduced the charges against from Attempted Murder of the First Degree and High Treason to Disturbance of the Peace. Closing arguments in the trial will be heard by the Court of Yew on Sunday, May 24, 2009 at 6:00 PM PST.

    According to the Town Guard log books, which can be viewed in their station near the West Britan Bank the Redcaps have been responsible for numerous crimes including mass murders. Children are also reportedly missing from the City's farms, wharf and warehouse districts. Fighting against the severe increase in crime and bloodshed in the streets, the Town Guards have stepped up recruiting and patrols.

    The Town Guards have also established a new Guard Tower, located near the Castle of Britain. Discouraged by the Court reducing the charges against Cymidei Fier, Corporal Brackus and the other guards are now rounding up Redcaps when they find them, arresting tying them up and beating them instead of taking them to the Yew Courts.

    As a counter attack the Redcaps kidnapped Guardsman Recruit Rick Flair and are holding him captive at the Dark Tower. As the turmoil in Britain continues to escalate beware of both the Redcap gang and the Town Guards!
