A strange illness took over the Trinsic guard recently. Nigel the
Healer says they all contracted food poisoning. The antidote for the poison was difficult
to track down and most of the Trinsic guards were unable to perform their duties.
During the food poisoning episode an army of orcs descended on
Trinsic. They seemed to appear out of nowhere and attacked all the citizens they came
across. The streets of Trinsic where covered in blood and corpses. People were screaming
for the guards to help them, but alas none were able to come.
It took us over an hour to discover the type of poisoned used,
said Nigel. We finally did discover the source and developed the antidote but this
whole affair has cost many lives.
The poison was traced to a bunch of chickens that the guard mess
officer purchased from a merchant named Gregor. A bounty has been placed on Gregor and the
Trinsic guard is seeking information regarding his whereabouts.
It seems obvious to this reporter that Gregor is in league with the
orcs. I have heard talk among the Trinsic elders that an army will be raised to attack the
Orc Fort. More on this as details develop.
