Wednesday, December 28th – A Fun Guy’s Folly
With the investigative team quickly unraveling clues before them, a startling discovery may have already indicated the mysterious killer’s next target…
Fun Guy’s Folly Followup
Jamison Tort is currently under close watch with the Guard but his wounds from falling from the tree were severe, and he was coughing blood last we saw him We all hope for his recovery. I’m sure something will be released shortly by the Guard though. The assassin is still out there in January a compilation of the hard facts and clues will be released, likely later in the month in the form of investigation notes from Captain Irina.
Mr. Tort claimed to have no small share of enemies, though he did not know Morty the herbalist. He said there were a number of people who would want him dead over his gambling debts including several people in the Fortune’s Fire Casino and others. A point raised by players was that he did know Drakar Thantz and Olin Brash but was unaware that Drakar was apparently rolling in the money as of late.
He also mentioned that when he got the peculiarly altered copy of Mycologist Monthly 47. It was from a pretty brown haired lady archivist who had well worn leather boots. What pheonix said is also correct, so I think we’ll be finding Lily and Abigail at some point in the near future if we can. It’s since been determined by Captain Irina, that there are no female archivists in the employ of the Lycaeum that match the description combined with it being the lure, it’s probably this was the Assassin or an accomplice.

All the News That’s Fit To Print!
Man in Guard Custody Laid To Rest
It seems that after the commotion caused in the recent arrest of some of our fellow journalists, if they could be called that, at the Britain Beacon, that two warrants were issued for Drakar Thantz and for Jamison Tort. With a volunteer force of extra guards and a few civilians, Tort was located in the wilds of the Lost Lands and injured severely. It seems that despite the best efforts of those present, Jamison Tort succumbed to his wounds at an undisclosed location late last night. The Guard was reached for comment and Captain Gwendolyn Irina responded to our requests. Her statement read, “It is extremely regrettable that we were not able to save Mr. Tort’s life, but he died from his injuries sustained prior to when we found him. Unfortunately he was unable to assist us in our investigation. Since he had no living relatives nor claimants, his body was cremated and his ashes spread. Due to the fact he was severely in debt to several individuals and organizations his meager belongings will go to auction after they have been catalogued and sold to repay what debt is possible.” Reginald of the Lycaeum was also reached for comment, and he described Tort as a ‘brilliant, eager researcher of all things in his field of mycology’ but that he had a ‘terrible addiction to gambling’ and that he hoped that Jamison was at peace.
Empress to Host Public Banquet and Address
In the wake of the New Year the Empress of Tokuno is throwing a banquet and feast to go along with her customary Tokunese Address. In previous years this was held privately for privileged members of the Tokunese Elite, but this year it will be open to all. In preparation the Empress has her people working on both an outdoor and indoor venue that will be available, but she said “It is with hope that the weather shall be well for our banquet, as the beauty of our city can be appreciated best under its blue skies.” According to inside sources the feast will be very well supplied with foods of both Tokunese and Britannian descent in preparation for the new guests. An advisor of the Empress’ also let us know that they are seeking anyone who may wish to volunteer to assist in this peaceful banquet and welcoming exercise in the spirit of togetherness, and that any human or elf interested should contact them. More information can be found on the back cover.
Olin Brash Arrested, Warrant for Drakar Thantz
Recently the offices of the Britain Beacon were unceremoniously burst into by members of the Royal Guard, led by the brusque and forceful Captain Gwendolyn Irina who was conducting a raid of the building. According to the released information from the Guard the offices of the Britain Beacon Publishing Company were burst into over suspicion of fraud and money laundering, and the sole employee on duty that evening was arrested. Olin Brash, famed conspiracy theorist was taken to the Yew Prison for questioning where he currently resides. The offices of the Britain Beacon Publishing Company are closed at present, and the search goes on for the owner, Drakar Thantz.
