    On Friday, January 10th a special Governor’s Meeting was held to discuss the pirate threat to Serpent Holds.

    A book was found near the boat with the following number series in it: 5220254204. It was suspected to be a set of coordinates or even a city name and orders were issued to have it deciphered.

    It was further reported that pirates had been spotted in Britain. This lead to concern that every city might be in danger and the King ordered the Governor’s to put their citizens on alert for the pirates but to be cautious. A KOS (Kill on Sight) was issued for all pirates. The King also asked that Yew and Trinsic be checked on as they do not have Governors. The meeting was adjourned and we were to up again the next day on Saturday, January 11th at 7 PM PST.




    We meet up with Lord Dupre the next day at West Britain Bank Trammel. He reported that his scouts had spotted a possible camp of pirates off of Serpents Hold and informed us that the number series was determined to be the word “Trinsic”.

    We departed from Serpent’s Hold following Lord Dupre’s boat to the reported camp.

    We eventually landed on Bald Island, which is located North West of Serpent’s Hold.

    After defeating the pirates in battle, we discovered a book at the camp which seemed to be threatening the Governors and expressed an interest in the city treasuries.

    One governor suggested guards for the City Herald, who hold the funds for the cities.

    Lord Dupre urged the Governors and citizens to be careful while traveling in the cities. The crowd departed as Dupre went to report the events to the King. The next day, a single Royal Guard was found posted at each of the Governors Offices.

    All of the Royal Guards at the Governors Offices were found dead on Friday, January 24th.

    On Saturday, January 25th, we gathered at West Britain Bank Trammel where Grindylow the Hag meet us. She had information on the pirate leader, Longbeard.

    She reported that there was a snitch in a bank, the threat against the governors had been ploy, and she knew which bank had the leak. She led us to the Bank of Brittania: Trinsic Bank. There we talked to Marco the Bank President.



    [​IMG]



    Marco gave us information that took us to the Secret Valley south of Trinsic. As we were leaving the bank, he was placed under arrest for extortion of bank funds.



    [​IMG]



    After fighting our way to the hidden teleporter inside the western mountain of the valley, we took the gate in the bottom floor of the mage shop to the pirate’s lair. There we encountered more pirates and the leader, Longbeard, himself.

    After defeating Longbeard and his pirates, the missing gold and gems was found.
