A pall over the golden age! Last night, on the eve of the Summersday festival, a cowardly attempt was made to assassinate Baron Northcrest himself! A black powder plot at Northcrest Manor resulted in a great blast that could be heard echoing across The City.
With a sense of great relief surely shared by all our fellow citizens, we can report the Baron survived the deplorable act. Already the fine members of the City Watch move to bring those involved to swift justice.
It is the view of the Watch that there is no cause for panic in the streets. However, they remind all loyal to the Baron that it is your duty to report any seditious talk you might overhear. Remember, poison words can lead to poison deeds!
