  • Interim militia marshal Thadston brings warning from old contacts that Kragnack has been hitting vessels along the northern coast and that some reports indicate the pattern of attacks looks like he's coming to the Landing next, perhaps as early as the Eve of the Huntress.
  • Thadston warns not to expect only the krol, but the undead and demons due to magic learned from Elithain Cross during the War of Shadows.
  • The Landing's own pylons are in working order, though he doesn't know if the same is true of the ones on the ship that brought in Praxopius.


[Moot Hall, Mayor Lylia's Office]

From a dais, the maoral desk and an ivory and velvet curule seat loom over two carved wooden chairs. Tapestry rugs cover the hardwood floor, their patterns complementing the arched windows flanking the desk. A stag's head stares at a panoramic fresco mounted opposite it. In a corner near the bar, a scarred witchwood perch rises to the high ceiling, while several feet away, a black iron stove rests against the west wall and is topped with a silver kettle. You also see a small maoral sideboard with some stuff on it, a maoral bookcase and a varnished modwir door.

Thadston marches in.

Thadston nods.

Thadston says, "Evening."

Thadston says, "Ah, good."

Thadston nods at Stormyrain.

Stormyrain casually glances at Thadston.

Thadston nods at Shinann.

Speaking heartily to Thadston, Chamorr says, "Howdy marshal."

Thadston says, "I am sorry I did not get a chance to speak to you two yet Captains."

Thadston asks, "Marshal?"

Shinann nods at Thadston.

Thadston says, "Call me Thadston."

Speaking nonchalantly to Chamorr, Stormyrain corrects, "Interim."

Speaking heartily to Thadston, Chamorr says, "Howdy Thaddy."

Thadston says, "Titles are just another form of chains."

Speaking calmly to Thadston, Cruxophim greets, "Evening, seems you're moving up in the world."

Thadston says, "As you slide back, fancy that."

Thadston nods at Cruxophim.

Speaking amusedly to Thadston, Cruxophim counters, "Slide back? Dear sir, I'm right where I need to be."

Thadston says, "I know."

Thadston twists his head slightly, cracking his neck. He looks relieved.

Thadston says, "Magister."

Thadston nods at Raelee.

Speaking to Thadston, Raelee replies, "Thadston."

Thadston says, "I'll be quick tonight. We've plans to set into motion."

Thadston says, "I've gotten word from some old contacts along the coast."

Speaking seriously to Thadston, Cruxophim guesses, "Regarding Thrayzar?"

Thadston says, "No."

Thadston says, "Kragnack."

Speaking grimly to Thadston, Cruxophim muses, "Ah."

Chamorr heartily asks, "Krol?"

Thadston says, "He's hit some vessels along the northern coast, just along the Empire. Nothing too close to land yet."

Thadston says, "But according to some reports, pattern looks like they are coming here next."

Cryheart asks, "Approximately when do we expect em?"

Thadston says, "We can't be certain, yet. We'll know more as we draw closer. But likely, Eve of the Huntress this week."

Thadston says, "We'll be prepared. I suggest everyone else is too."

Thadston says, "It will not just be krol."

Shinann asks, "Who else?"

Thadston says, "He commands undead and demons."

Thadston says, "Tricks he garnered from Cross during the War of Shadows."

Thadston says, "He lost his arm when Cross died, with that red gauntlet..."

Thadston says, "But he still wields the magic he learned."

Speaking heartily to Thadston, Chamorr asks, "Are those pylons in workin order?"

Thadston asks, "What pylons?"

Thadston asks, "Oh, ours at the docks?"

Thadston says, "Yes."

Thadston says, "The ones on that big boat? No idea, ask the cripple kid."

Thadston winces, touching his side briefly.

Thadston says, "Captains. Make sure we're increasing training this week. I'll look over the new recruit applications this week."

Thadston nods at Stormyrain.

Thadston nods at Shinann.

Shinann nods at Thadston.

Stormyrain says, "As you wish."

Thadston says, "Good evening all."

Thadston bows.

Lylia says, "Rest well."

Speaking to Thadston, Zosopage says, "Rest well."

Cryheart says, "Rest well."

Thadston says, "There's no time for rest."

Thadston grins.

Lord Thadston just went through a varnished modwir door.
