Fire Destroys Large Section of Radcolm Capital
Nar Sighted in Telma!

Witnesses recount tales of seeing Nar striding through the streets of the Telman capital. Many were alarmed but there are no accounts of anybody coming to harm. Nar are, of course, allowed to peacefully visit the free city of Telma, but they are a rare sight indeed.

Fire Destroys Large Section of Radcolm Capital

A raging fire destroyed the entire milling district of Jolich, the capital city of Radcolm.

The fire started when a burning wagon of straw collided into a grain mill. Moments after the flames were seen in the mill, a huge explosion occurred destroying many nearby shops.

It does not seem likely that this was an accident. The local police have arrested certain members of the Peddlers & Tinkerers Alliance and others are under suspicion. No official word has been released at this time, however.

Cosena's Triumphal Gate is Completed

In the Veromani capital of Cosena today, a day of celebration was announced by Doge Griseldo Herizzi to commemorate the completion of the Triumphal Gate, the new northern entrance into the city. Shops were ordered closed and parades were held down the main avenue of the city.

The gate took three years to build and is made of basalt and marble, with gold trimmings. Giuseppe Segni, famed Veromani artist and rumored favorite of the Doge himself, contributed to many of the bas reliefs displayed on the gate. The Doge marked this gate as a gift to every citizen of Veromani. "It is a symbol of our great artistic talent and marks the hard work and fervor which every person in this great kingdom puts forth every single day."

New Heir in Kroenig

The ruling family of Rorasin have finally had a child after 12 years of marriage. A collective sigh of relief was heard throughout Kroenig on the day of presentation. Princess Chamassa was named the official heir of the Kingdom at the same time.

One local fisherman remarked, "Ah was sure we would never see a babe in the castle, 'cause it took so long. It's good news to have an Heir again."

Another resident commented, "She sure is cute. I know she will be a great Ruling Queen when she grows up."

Festivals and celebrations are scheduled for the next seven weeks in honor of the occasion.

Caravans Attacked in the Jade Crown

The Luskani Dominion's ambassador to the Jade Crown lodged a formal protest today that Luskani merchants have been brutally attacked and murdered on the border between their two lands. "This is a matter of justice and, if these murderers are not caught, we will see it as a violation of our sovereign rights and be forced to take matters into our own hands," the ambassador said in a public announcement in Sai.

The Jade Crown has pledged to assist the Luskani Dominion in its investigation, but not without doubts of the authenticity of the accusation. "We will do our best to investigate these attacks and capture the guilty parties," a Jade Crown official who asked to remain anonymous told us. "However, our neighbors have made a habit of coming up with flimsy excuses for war before and we will conduct our investigation with that in mind."
