Gunpowder Plot Ends in Chaos
“While the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of tru-.”
– An Anarchist …before being decapitated.
Tonight – on the 5th of April – anarchists and demoniacs dissolutioned with the Britannian Government stormed the Capitol and managed to penetrate the defenses of the Queen’s Castle before being routed.
Yet it all seems to have been one elaborate distraction. For even as Mercenaries and Britannian Soldiers clashed with rioters, a series of blasts ripped through the polis, uprooting the streets, immolating the innocent, topping the rioters and sending the armed combatants to their knees. It seems that more than a week ago, Kegs of Gunpowder destined for the pass of Central Ilshenar were stolen from Ver Lor Reg and smuggled into Britannia. The bridge to Castle Blackthorne was destroyed in the conflagration. The High Council was no where to be found.
The rioters were well armed and organized this time. Corpses litter the streets. Frightened merchants and aristocrats have begun to flee Britain for quieter and much less vulnerable estates. The poor, as usual, are left to fend for themselves until their feudal masters return to establish order.
Remember, Remember, the 5th of April. The gunpowder and treason plot. I know of no reason, the gunpowder treason, should ever be forgot.
