RAIDERS ESCALATE THREAT OF ASGARNIAN FAMINE

¯

¸¸,
. ˆ
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯


On 29 Novtumber, a cart of grain sacks destined for the Kingdom of Falador was attacked by unidentified raiders and looters, of whom proceeded to steal the entire contents of the cart.

Last week, unnamed raiders attacked a farming village north of Falador. Workmen were loading up a cart with grain, of which was destined for transport towards the ‘white city’ after food stocks were pillaged during the Siege of Falador conducted by the infamous Black Knights.

One boy, who has requested to remain unnamed, told The ‘Times he saw the flickering of torchlight upon the horizon shortly after the cart had been loaded with grain. Billy, a workmate of the latter, says “we saw the riders on their horses just after my friend pointed out the torches. They were riding fast, and we saw their weapons. We knew they weren’t here for pleasantries, so we fled.”

The bodies of the raiders were found later that day by Asgarnian troops that had been sent out to track down the raiders and, if possible, reobtain the grain. Officials say that the bodies were found dismembered: that “human-sized” mouths had eaten parts of the fallen raiders. They also say that a large amount of grain had been stolen, with what was left being “hardly salvageable”.

The Times have learned that The Order of the Band, an Asgarnian-approved freelance military organisation, are not only investigating the raiders but also those who engaged combat with them.

Little is currently known about the raiders, however a Sergeant of the regiment that found the raiders claims “it could have been the undead”, due to the close proximity of the event and the Wilderness wall. However, he has assured The ‘Times alongside villagers that the raiders no longer pose a threat.

Combined with the raiding of food stocks during the Siege of Falador, this now means that the Empire of Asgarnia are edging ever closer to a famine. Reports suggest that the Asgarnian treasury has suffered losses of roughly 22%, with currently no foreign trade partners to help improve the situation.

The Asgarnian government has made no official comment regarding the situation, other than asking their citizens to remain calm in this difficult time.

A DREAM OF JACKALS IN THE SAND

¯
`.„
¸¸,

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯


It is the opinion of this columnist, ignorant though I may be on matters of cosmological and historical significance, that the Kharidian desert is the finest example we have of mortal perseverance in the face of immortal belligerence.

Walking the bazaars of Al Kharid, and taking in the gilded minarets and sandstone mega-structures wrought by ancient hands, a northern visitor might get a sense that the best is yet to come. Al Kharid is the gateway to the world beyond as we all know; and though we know that about 95% of the landmass beyond is nought but desert, we expect the remainder to be of such splendour and grandeur that Al Kharid is put to shame.

The explorers among us know this is not the case. Pollnivneach is a criminal's paradise, rife with thievery and seemingly home to half of the rest of Gielinor's most wanted. Nardah, proclaimed the world over as a major spiritual hub, is little more than a few shacks around a fountain. Sophanem is a disease-ridden relic with an attitude problem. The ruins are impressive, no question, but they're shut up tighter than a miser's pursc.

But all have one thing in common: despite the best efforts of gods and sycophants, they have not just survived, but thrived. Even today, Nardah has to fend off threats from the outside world but does so stoically, and without violence. Pollnivneach is bustling and busy with laughter and (mostly) legitimate commerce. Sophanem is on the mend, carefully administered and tentatively putting out feelers to the outside world.

The strength of the Kharid lies in its spirit. Legends say it was once bountiful and fertile, before being ravaged to fend off invaders. That beauty and strength is found now in the hearts of the Kharidians themselves. Its dunes and corners may hide all manner of wonders; but there is no greater wonder than the Kharidians themselves. For in them, we see the true quality of mortals: perseverance.

A QUEEN'S MADNESS, REBELLION FLARES

¯
`.„
¸¸,
. ˆ
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯


On 34 Novtumber, a protest in Varrock Square turned violent, leaving several wounded.

Previous to her disappearance several weeks ago, the Queen of Misthalin was said to have spiraled into madness. She was reported to have sentenced minor criminals and even children to the fullest extent of punishment for their crimes, including but not limited to time in the stocks, labor in Misthalin's mines and even mutilation. Citizens also reported the Queen's disinterest in caring for her people or their lands, ignoring the fires set to the Ptolemy Dean Public Library. It has been said that the Queen's madness also contributed to the severing of alliance ties to Asgarnia.

In the wake of the Queen's madness and subsequent disappearance, the people of Varrock have begun to rise up against the Royals. On 34 Novtumber, a protest was held in the city square. During the heated outcry a fight began and several citizens were wounded, four reported dead. These events have enraged the people, leaving many expecting more violence to follow.

It is unclear what caused the maddness of Queen Lavinia. What is clear, however, is the distaste the peoples of the Kingdom have had for their leaders ever since. The Queen's heir, Lucrezia Lansing, has been named temporary Regent. It is unlikely the fires of rebellion will be soon quenched.

NEW LEADERS APPOINTED TO LANDS IN MISTHALIN

¯
`.„
¸¸,
. ˆ
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯


Shortly after the sudden disappearance of the Duchess and family of Lumbridge-Draynor, new leadership has been appointed in Draynor and Edgeville.

It was recently announced that the Village of Draynor had been appointed a new Count, one Ivaylo Bardokva. It was likewise announced that Duke Abel Lansing would assume control of the the Edge March. While the village of Draynor had previously been well cared for by the nobility of Lumbridge, these changes have greatly effected the Edge March, whose citizens were under the care and control of Varrock's administration. Duke Abel has formed the Order of the Sentinels, knights tasked with watching the Wilderness wall and protecting Edgeville and all of Misthalin from threats from the North.

The appointment of Count Ivaylo to Draynor comes after the unexpected disappearance of Duchess Kya Vernet and her family from Lumbridge. While rumors of the cause of this disappearance float, an official statement cannot be given at this time. With this announcment, the village of Draynor has removed itself from the merging of the two southern territories.

Rumors have spread concerning the future of Lumbridge without its Duchess, however none have been validated. Until a leader is named, Lumbridge remains under the watchful eye of Varrock's administration.
