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."

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

Certain witnesses claim that the eel is over 30 feet in length, but there is some dispute. Regardless of the actual size of the monster, the moors are, in fact, quite dangerous. Avoid travel through this area unless absolutely necessary.
