    Some may not have been able to hear the speeches from last night's event. So, as promised, here's the text. Please don't read these if haven't done the event yet on your own shard.

    Queen Dawn
    *smiles* Welcome to you all.
    My beloved subjects, you have fought wonderfully well against Virtuebane.
    I am very proud of you all.
    No monarch could ask for a better or more loyal people.

    I'm pleased to tell you that I've learned of a way we may be able to defeat
    the evil that menaces our towns.
    Virtuebane is vulnerable to Humility.
    I shall imbue my sword with that virtue.
    Then I shall lead you into battle against Virtuebane!

    *unsheathes sword*
    *holds sword aloft*

    Join me as we go forth to our destiny!

    *picks up blood-stained poisoned dagger*
    With this dagger, I control Love.
    *muses* Love in the form of a dagger rather than a candle...
    Appropriate for the pain Love can cause.
    *laughs* Corrupted Books of Truth so many secretly hoard...
    *glances around*
    The cities WILL fall. The bells will be tainted.
    Don't congratulate yourselves on that score just yet.
    All know of the mayfly lives *gestures at the still figure on the ground*
    and short attention spans of mortals.
    Those cities SHALL fall to my minions.

    Lord Magnus Grey
    A great tragedy has befallen Britannia this night.
    Our queen is dead, beyond the reach of healers or mages.
    As is true of many political leaders, she was sometimes controversial.
    None though can deny that Queen Dawn dedicated her life to Britannia.
    Queen Dawn was a warrior, with a strong sense of duty, and a devotion to the virtue of Valor.

    There is much work to be done in the coming weeks.
    We will hold a memorial for our late queen.
    We will strive to wrest that dagger from the foul hands of Virtuebane.
    We will seek out Dawn's ancestral sword, which she gave her life to imbue.
    We will continue to defend our cities.
    Most importantly, we will avenge our queen,
    We will avenge Virtuebane's insult to our great nation,
    We will avenge his desecration of the Principles and the Virtues!

    Captain Dasha, of the Meer
    The Meer wish to offer our deepest condolences on the death of Queen Dawn of Britannia.
    This is a day of grief for both our peoples.
    She was a good friend to the Meer and a dear friend of my own youth.
    The Meer wish to reaffirm our alliance with Britannia.
    We have magically crafted a tribute to Dawn, a remembrance.
    It is a gift from our people to yours, in this time of strife and sorrow.
