Pack Rat Captured!
At the beginning of the month, the Pack Rat was responsible for the theft of a famous blade, and was set upon stealing the famous Sunburst Gem from the hands of our own Gaius Stanic, Collector and Philanthropist. Thanks to the efforts of The Dogcatchers, the infamous thief is behind bars and suffering from serious injuries, which he’s being treated for and is expected to live.
On the night of his intended heist of the gem, Stanic comments that the bounty hunting group was very thorough and worried about his safety throughout the mission. Though the Pack Rat made a mess of things, and was nearly away from the scene, but the efforts of Rowan Voyle and a Nyss elf who goes simply by ‘Din’ managed to track him down and subdue him.
The team also reports a large Ogrun who was unidentified until his autopsy, but is supposedly a former tribal chieftain of the Throatripper clan. He is remembered a savage, merciless killer who has cleaved through countless guards to reach his mark. But he has met his end and is no longer a threat.
Finally, Castellan Juan Vargus was arrested for collusion with murder and grand theft. However, shortly after his arrest he posted a bail of 500,000 Royals.
Battle at Rynyr Solved
After some careful examination, investigators found that the cause for the sudden retreat in the Menoth ranks was due to a large caliber explosive striking from the sky and splitting a massive fissure into the earth. Because the earth outside in Bloodstone is craggy, and filled with holes that could not be explained.
Upon further inspection, the shell appears to have been set underground long before the battle, but is not of a make that is Khadoran, or anything familiar. The shell has been recovered and is under keen investigation.
Northern Villages Burned to the Ground
North of Tverkutsk, three villages were found burned to ashes. The villagers were nowhere to be found, and no traces of struggle could be identified. The only evidence left behind was a palm print traced in ashes, placed upon the face of a tree. The tree, startlingly, was left untouched at the heart of the village.
The same scene is at the neighboring villages, and no one seems to have witnessed what happened until the smoke had settled. Any evidence should be reported to the authorities.
The Red General Leads Conquest on Cygnar
On 23 Rowen, Grigori Stasvite, aka The Red General, led an assault on Cygnaran forces that was responsible for a hard push through Thornwood and to the borders of Bainsmarket. The kill tally was in the thousands, and the Cygnarans took a staggering loss, while Khadoran forces took minimal casualties.
The Red General is nearing retirement, and the Warcaster believes his title should be passed to an able command. His list of candidates is short, but he believes he may make the right decision when the time comes.
Rogue Still at Large
Rogue, as is his only name, is a criminal of both small and large magnitude. His movements and motives are considered unorthodox, and his thefts often seem trivial, to the point he may just be doing it for fun.
At the center of Rowen, Rogue was responsible for stealing a large shipment of goose feathers meant for pillows. The train was set for Korsk from Volningrad, but was intercepted mid transit, where the final car was detached and set adrift. Before the authorities could catch the runaway car, it was empty, and no traces were left behind, save for a single playing card with the K on the King of Spades etched into an R.
His only quality people tend to comment on is his handsome appearance.
