    Yorik's Log
    by Yorik Elther

    The roads have been
    dangerous of late, and
    many of the shipments of
    goods via caravan have
    gone missing or been
    attacked by marauders.
    Weve started guarding
    what shipments we can,
    but were low on guards
    and the necessities to
    repair our gear. Weve
    had to divert some of
    our guardforce to Minoc
    to help guard the
    shipments of ore and
    weaponry here safely. It
    doesnt help that weve
    had a few deserters
    recently. The citizens
    dont like it, but at
    least the monks dont
    mind. They never cared
    for having us here in the
    first place. At least they
    dont raise a fuss.

    Much as I dont like the
    monks, theyre blasted
    good healers. Its a good
    thing weve got them
    here as several of the
    guards whove been
    helping escort the
    shipments have come back
    wounded and worse for
    wear by fighting off
    bandits. My post here at
    the guardhouse hasnt
    seen much other than the
    passing caravans. Im not
    sure whether to be
    thankful for that or not,
    though my wife certainly
    thinks I should be. Still,
    Id rather be fighting like
    my fellow guards.

    Weve lost six caravans
    in the past two weeks,
    and it seems to be the
    work of a single group of
    bandits. The sergeant
    says he has a plan to
    get them, and hell need
    our help. Im wondering if
    I shouldnt have taken up
    my retirement after that
    business with Virtuebane.

    The sergeant is going to
    set up an ambush with a
    fake caravan and as many
    of us as he can get to
    go with him. Despite my
    wifes pleas I know this
    is what I need to do to
    help secure the safety of
    Yew and the trade

    *The writing here is
    shaky and unsteady, but
    in the same hand* The
    sergeants plan was a
    good one, but we werent
    expecting such a strong
    showing from mere
    brigands. It wasnt until
    after we checked their
    dead and the few
    survivors had fled that
    we realized that they
    werent regular brigands,
    and how they knew all
    the trade routes. At
    least two of the slain
    brigands were former
    members of the guard.

    I sustained a serious injury
    to my shield arm in the
    fight, and have been
    staying at the healers
    here in Yew while I
    recover. I think this time
    Im going to listen to
    the wife and find a safer
    line of work.

    There is a book like this on every shard, FYI.

    One in each of the affected cities most like.

    Edit: Found books in each of the cities which are part of the civil unrest, except Moonglow.

    I've seen one in Trinsic somewhere... I made a copy of all the books I found. I want to say it was somewhere near the healer's...

    Edit: It's in Baked Delights, just two doors down from the healer's.
