Citizens of Britannia are warned to be
weary, as authorities believe there is a murderer amongst
us. Several bodies of notable citizens have been found within
cities. All seem to have died in a similar fashion. The bodies
are usually bound, and always appear to have had their tongues
Sir Gilbert, Knight of Serpentís Hold
Sir Gilbert was found within the Serpentís Hold training grounds
late at night. He was fully armed, and armored. However, his
sword was still within his scabbard when a fellow knight discovered
the corpse. Sir Gilbert follows his squire, Percival, who
perished in a raid on Dungeon Deceit several weeks ago.
Gloria was found within her chambers at the Nujelím palace.
She is believed to have been a favored niece of the Sultan.
Wilbur was found at his forge, in North Trinsic, by his apprentice.
He is noted as a skilled smith. A private memorial will be
held for his familly.
Jasper, a hand at a farm on the isle of Verity, died shortly
after his farm was raided by pirates. Identification was made
by his personal effects, as much of his face had been eaten
away by ravens.
Gregor, Undertaker at the Moonglow Cemetery, was found bound
within one of the Crypts he had been cleaning.
Jacelyn was found dead, within one of the cells in the Britannia
Prison, behind the Court of Truth, in Yew.
If you have any information about these crimes, or know of
similar murders, please contact the appropriate authorities.
