Welcome back Narissa, Thakria has been somewhat... lacking... since your disappearence.
To keep you up to date:
1) The honourable and brave Alchemists within the City of Light have already thrown off the yoke of Zenichiro and Mercinean theives are treated (as they should be) as respected comrades and friends.
2) The Mercinaen bounty on Thakrian men stands at a record of 100 coin per man. Mercinae will continue to rid the streets of Thakria of the drunken wastrels that loiter on her street corners each day.
3) The orcs are an evil scourge that hold our beloved Queen prisoner in their lowest dungeons and Mercinae will regularly cleanse Orctown offering their bodies to the glory of Lord Apollo.
A new generation rises in Mercinae opposing Thakria and defending fair Mercinae. The winds of change are blowing.
Welcome back indeed, Narissa.
Written by my hand on the 25th of Midwinter, in the year 1223.
