To the citizens of Stormstead, our allies and all our unaffiliated visitors,
Last night the dreaded nuisance and criminal, Alexander Molvolio was taken into custody by four denizens of Eyr, Orliene of the village and proprietress of our fine bath house ((please, you get very sweaty in the jungle… she has soap!)), formerly of the ebon reach; Scarlet, of the village and book shop employee ((seriously folks, see her for those book boons!)) and the Moei Asing; Arelea, of the village and the Moei Asing and Sage Advice employee ((you know you want tea! I hear the neem is fabulous)); and a stranger, Shallinn of… well, nowhere and no affiliation, though she has been seen in the village.
These good and responsible citizens took it upon themselves to track down the felon who had failed to comply with my just ruling. The wanted posters were up all over the village and these ladies managed to bring him down in one night by their combined efforts. And he’s a wolf. So I have to admit, I’m rather impressed.
I honestly thought it would have been done sooner. The offered bounty was several silver coins and the ruffian … had been spotted … *in* the village. He was located in the tavern several times since the bounty went up for him to be taken alive and turned into the custody of the Stormstead guardhouse cage! Quite frankly, I’m abysmally disappointed. I mean I would have done it myself… but I’m incorporeal. This man. A puppet of the Ebon Reach… was allowed to mosey into our village, threaten our women and steal from the good satyr’s stores. And no one stopped him!
I am calling for renewed vigilance in the village and volunteers to guard the perimeter!
Don’t think I don’t see you men and magic casters out there. Milling about, drunk and chasing the ladies and the men. Sitting behind the bar, haggard and unwilling to commit to a cause. What are you doing other than drinking and eating the village out of its stores? Are you bringing in enough to replace what you consume?
From now on, our citizens must unite and renew the stores together, as a community. And if you are able bodied and wish to partake of what the village has to offer, at the least, take up arms and fight for it if you see criminal elements parading about the village! Fight for this good place you hope to call home.
In the meantime, many thanks once more to the women of the land. For their staunch character and fighting spirit. May their magic and their sword wielding arms and their brilliant minds continue to serve us all well.
