UP: Lake Superior
say you need nerves of steal to survive day-to-day life in Buccaneer’s Den.
The town is haven to the worst sorts of Sosaria. Murderer’s and thieves find
solace in their borders. After putting these thoughts to paper I can understand
why some of our more noble citizens might say good riddance to the forthcoming
report. Other’s may wish to take note of following event incase it should
spread to more law abiding shores.
I landed on the shores of Buc’s Den shortly after receiving a tip about a
smuggling operation supplying Lady Minax’s army. I had made little headway on
the story and in defeat was ready to return to my safe home in Britain when the
north sky lit up. Screams of “Fire” went through the town. Many of the
unfriendly citizens banded together and fought the sheer walls of flame. Then
suddenly, across town another fire sprung up and soon the third and final burned
in the night sky. The town was in chaos, some fought the fires, others looted
and a select few went on a manhunt to find the culprit.
By morning the town had spent the whole night fighting the terrible fires.
They thanked unseen forces for not letting the fires spread to their homes.
However, the cause was far from their grasp. “It were arson alright, as sure
as my name be... well I’s ain’t gonna tell you that,” said a
“merchant.” Others claimed it was an act of unseen deities they called
“GM’s. “In the end the question remained, if this was arson, then who was
the Arsonist? Why Buccaneer’s Den? Why such specific locations? What did he or
she want? Will the fires continue?
I can present no answers at this time and the Courts of Britannia refuse to
comment on the matter. I ask that anyone who knows anything about these attack
to please contact the proper authorities with your information.
