The News – common knowledge or rumors circulated from the troops that would work their way to any leaders
35th of Ready’reat
Chistles Point Needs Police
o Mayor Matron Brina of Chistles Point would like to have a meeting with Command leader of the Dwarven Imperials, the Stones Army and Kelezandri’s Navy after the stronghold invasion. Theft and crime are on the up in Chistles Point and the Mayor feels that a unified police system would cut down on investigation errors or criminals slipping through the cracks. When asked a Bosun in Kelezandir’s Navy said this “We are fighting a war, it’s nice the Mayor wants to sit around and play house, but our fighting men are needed on the line saving lives not wandering the streets of friendly cities chasing misbehaving kids”
The Chosen 5 of Dumathion are Still Missing
o Early evidence leads us to believe that cultists, either Air or C’thulu, are behind it. A special task force of Hithilum Investigators and Dwarven Imperials has been assigned to find and recover the missing five.Princess Yolonda is said to be on the task force and had this to say “I will find the 5, and if you are behind this, you better hope to Hithilum you aren’t around when I get there!”
An Titanic Expedition left Chistles Point
o Over 100 volunteers departed from Chistles Point to find the Titan Elysium, the expedition is led by Brennus Ironclout of the Stones army. “We need the Titan now more than ever, the Great Granite will lead the way, we just have to trust him”
Is Kelezandri out of Bears?
o “No” according to Commander Tibbers, but no bears have been handed out to waiting children for the last four days… What’s Up With That? When asked Governor Varrick said this “How could we possibly run out of bears, it’s kinda what we do, now do you know what we are out of? Hard working laborers… you know what we have a lot of? Annoying little people who stir up shit, I’m thinking this problem could be solved right here and now if we just…” (our reporter left before finishing the quote)
A New Friendlier Don-Ton?
o Rehume and Don-Ton seem to have become closer allies with three new trade deals being signed in rapid succession. Don-Ton has also signed special permission to allow the church of Kelezandir to build four Shrines and a Church within the city. All this stems from what Torrent Nigel calls “a war bond” between himself and Lord Strahd von Zarrovich. The Torrent himself with the aid of Lord von Zarrovich has recently purchased a minor dock within the free city of Don-Ton. What will this relationship mean for the future? Are you comfortable with these two mega powers being so friendly?
Smith Complains Racism for Best Materials.
o Erick Benny Garrison is on record at Chistles Point arguing that the Everlast and then the dwarves get first pick when it comes to crafting with superior materials, leaving humans who want to challenge themselves and expand their skills behind. Mayor Brina of Chilstles Point comments that “in times of war we cannot take risks on new craftsmen when we have Masters available to us, resources are allocated based on skill not race”. What do you think, are the fey and dwarves leaving humans behind?
Dwaven Imperials Making Headway in the South.
o Large troop movements in the south continue to happen, the nature and location of the missions in unknown, but this appears to be the largest troop engagement since the founding of the A of A, Hrock, Dwarven Stronghold, or opening overland travel to the Fire Nation are all potentials of where we might be headed next. A of A War Council has said troop movements are classified and we should “Stop Asking”
o Strange reports of a blue throated thrush have arisen in the Isles north of Equestira, why is this important, because some think this is the very same thrush that was Entarez’s familiar. Many believe since the loss of Entarez and Dalathan the A of A has groped blindly without magical guidance, could this be changing things? Has one of the founding A of A wizards returned to us?
TROLLs- Monsters or Really Angry Humans
o Recent social studies by the Dactyl known as Borgon Du’Loth says that trolls have feelings, thoughts and even complex emotions. “These creatures are sentient and should have the same rights and privileges of any other race within the A of A”. The elf known as Dr Ivanis Go’Durath states however that trolls were grown and created, and thus though they may have some semblance of emotions and feelings are not truly alive, “people should remember that constructs and trolls are valuable tools, but are just tools and nothing more”. What do you think?
C’thulu Cults – Are They Coming to Get Us?
o Yes, yes they are. Reports of shadowy cults have arisen in Tukin, Pelegious, Chistles Point, Don-Ton, Crymeeria and High-Port. The A of A has yet to release any information on what kind of danger these cults pose and how they should be identified or if they are even outlawed. Be careful and watch your children, cause if you aren’t you better believe the cults are!
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS MAN ?
o #1 on the A of A most wanted list is James Weasley (picture seen here) if you see him do not approach, report all findings to any A of A soldier. Information leading to his capture is subject to a reward of 100,000 GS from Fluid Dynamics in Rehume. He is to be considered very armed and very dangerous.
ELF is RIGHT with Rights?
o Lady Alease continues to file requests to King Francis for him to give her back the city of Pelagius. Currently it appears the A of A has refused to weigh in on the manner. Lady Alease recently hired a Don-Tonian law firm (Crane, Pool and Schmidt) to aid her in lawfully regaining her city. While the Elven nation of High Port has not specifically offered aid to her, support for the Elven noble appears to poll high among other high elves.
Panoptic Laboratories Due to Open Within the Month
o “it is with great pride that this institution of learning opens bringing us into an new age of enlightenment” those words are from Master Gery Windson, a high ranking official in the Church of Kelezandri and soon to be Dean of the new university in Chistles Point.
HONEY IS GOOD, GOD IS IT GOOD!
o What is in the honey to make it so good? No one knows but Ray Layota Honey is sweeping across the A of A as the treat of choice for 82% of A of A troops. The Honey fields are in an undisclosed northern location. Rumors continue to abound about cruel and unusual treatment of honey farm workers and an odd honey related religion on the rise in the area, but so far people don’t seem to care as long as the golden honey keeps flowing.
- A New Princess in Tukin?*
o Theiraqule, said to be the daughter of King Lemeath has arrived in Tukin, will she be taking the crown? Who is this person? What does it mean for the governance of the Knightly City? So far no word has come, but the beautiful princess has been seen walking the city in the company of both Sir Ambrose and Raven Everlast. When asked who this person was and what it meant for Tukin, Sir Ambrose is quoted as saying “Who the heck are you? Why do you want to know? mind your own business”
Respected Knight takes a Knee?
o Sir Myles of Oula is said to be very ill, he has spent the majority of the last two years attempting to build an ocean based outpost south of Don-Ton, the elderly Honalian was rushed back to Tukin this week and placed in the care of theMerciful Healer Eir to see to his ailments. Sir Myles is well respected amongst the leadership of the A of A and many of the Honalians, his daughter Sir Alana has returned to Tukin to be by his side during these trying times… gifts and well wishes can be sent to the Tukin church of Gabriele addressed to Sir Myles and will be sent to him from there.
War Hero Left out in the Cold
o After valiantly fighting in the Rune Wars, rumor has it Sir Keaton was not admitted to the Tukin hospital with the rest of the wounded, but rather was left in the fields outside the city until transport to a cleric in Rehume could be arranged. It appears there is no end in sight to the high and mightiness of the knights of Tukin. When asked about this Sir Keaton shrugged it off and said “I received all the aid I required and have fully recovered, thanks for worrying but I am fine” we know he is just being nice though, they should treat you better Keaton!
Is the Void Queen Truly Gone? Is She?
o Vulcanna may have settled down on Hyuki Island but someone has been showing up as the Void Queen. Reports from fey in the Evermoors and Pelegious guards say that an individual matching the Void Queens description has been seen in the woods perverting local flora and fauna. No official word from the A of A on this yet.
Queen Gone too Human?
o Queen Selwyn may not be an Angel anymore but is being human ok? Many dwarves in the Imperials aren’t too sure, the general consensus being to wait and see if their King even recognises her when he gets back. In the meantime rumors about her ability to lead now that she is human have been circulating. The Queen still has her generals and Dactyls however and talk of munity is treason during war time, whisper carefully boys.
o In this segment we try to make sense of who is royal
King Yolo Giant Slayer – Born a commoner, but picked up an axe that makes him a King in his culture… but only if recognised by the council of thanes; although he has a large army and county, by his own law he is not yet royalty
King Francis of Pelagius – Voted by other nobles to Kingship but the title may be hereditary, we won’t know until he passes.
Queen Selwyn – Married to King Yolo – see King Yolo
Princess’s Soshana and Yolonda – See King Yolo
Princess Theirqule – Daughter of King Lemeath, though was not recognised during his life nor has she been crowned or claimed royal status
Lord Strahd – a Knight granted elevation by former King of Don-Ton. Not of Royal Blood
Head Mordakka – earned rank by combat, no royalty within culture
Governor Varrick – appointed by the church, not heredity or royalty
Mayor Brina of Chistles Point – Elected by stake holders – term of office 10 years not hereditary or royal
Chief Orin – Earned by education and election – non hereditary non royal.
Mayor Galeb or Crymeeria – elected non royal
Elder Thnock of North Hutt – elected non royal
Fey Prince Everlast – who knows
