Blaze Burns Bodies
Over the last week a few local boys were publicly sentenced to hanging in what appeared to be an ad hoc military trial by Captain Zlata. The boys were due to hang for three nights to serve as an example. However, after the first night, there was a small forest fire that was caused by guards being drunk on duty and knocking over a torch. The blaze consumed the bodies, several trees, and one of the guards; the other guard sustaining minor burns. Bones were found on the scene but the fire made it hard to determine whose they might be. The guard that lived through the incident is to be court-martialed in Focsani and has been transported back to the capital.
“This kind of behavior will not be tolerated on my watch. Not only does such behavior reflect poorly on me, it reflects poorly on the DSF and Promethea.” said Captain Zlata.
New Curfew in Effect
With the rise in suspicious activity in the area Captain Zlata, in agreement with Magistrate Stanascu, has changed the curfew from 10 p.m. to 9 p.m. Anyone caught after dark without a permit will be subject to search, seizure, and imprisonment. Your cooperation in this matter is appreciated.
New Fortifications Built Around Jaristea
Over the last week plans have been underway to increase the security in Jaristea. The foundation for a central watchtower have been constructed. The tower is to be two stories tall and be manned by two to three guards at a time. There are future plans to install a spotlight as soon as they are able to route electricity into the village. The checkpoints are being reinforced and security measures will be increased. Have all traveling and business licenses ready when you plan to leave the city and set aside time for an inspection if you are randomly selected. Villagers can also expect to see more regular patrols more often.
A Special Thanks
The families of the deceased would like to thank all those who helped them pay their respect to the dead. Words can not express our gratitude for your kindness. You are the kind of people who make our village a home. We are forever in your debt.
