UP: Great Lakes
Several nights ago, the sandstone city of
Trinsic was invaded by a group of twenty to thirty Brigands. They attacked the
city directly, and were quickly repelled by Trinsicís citizens. Nothing more
was thought of this seemingly random incident, until it came to light that
Burke, an accomplished smith, had disappeared during the raid.
Burke had worked for several years in Trinsicís forges, crafting fine armor
and weapons for the garrison. Recently, Burke had set up shop in the Honorable
Arms, a weapons store in central Trinsic, near the famous Keg & Anchor
Burke was seen being dragged towards the Smugglerís Gate by three individuals,
two male, and one female. The leader was identified as Bordas, who is believed
responsible for the theft of two gold caravans, upon the road from Minoc to
Britain. A single citizen attempted to stop the kidnappers, but was run off
Bayta, the proprietress of the Adventurerís Clothing (a tailorís shop in
southern Trinsic) witnessed the group moving past her shop, and was able to
recall Bordasí description. Bordas is male, and appears to be in his late
forties, or early fifties. He is overweight, and has a receding hairline. Bordas
wears a close-trimmed beard. He is also described as being slightly tanned, and
has dark hair. During the raid, he was seen to be wearing a white tunic over
ringmail, and wielding an executionerís-style axe.
Burke is in his early thirties, and has long, dusty brown hair. He wears a
closely cut beard, and is heavily built. When last seen, he was wearing brown
leggings, a brown apron, and leather gloves.
If Bordas or Burke is seen, please report the sighting to the proper
authorities. Bordas is not known to travel without a bodyguard of several men,
so citizens should not attempt to apprehend him alone.
As of yet, no ransom demand has been received.
An investigation into possible corruption amongst the garrison of the city is
also now underway, as the guards did not respond to either the initial brigand
raid, or the kidnapping.
