Following their outrage at the council vote held without them, Roland and his
supporters quietly fell back to Casterlay.  As several noblemen part ways, it
almost seems as though they will allow the decision to stand and reluctantly
accept Amir as their new king.  This proves to be wishful thinking, however,
as men are reported moving, gathering in the north, and, at the height of
summer, a sudden influx invades Beresfield.  In quick succession, two pigeons
arrive from the Count of Beresfield.  The first begs assistance and reports
the invasion of forces from Casterlay, Lothos and Amhurst.  The second, only
a day later, renounces Amir as king and declares for Roland.  The subtext is
clear: a civil war has begun and Beresfield has fallen.

TLDR: Roland and his supporters declare war against Amir's reign by capturing
Beresfield.

_________________________________________________________________________
(Class Relations shifts up from Terrible to Pathetic.) In the height of
summer and with the civil war in it's opening stages, Lord Seneschal Norrig
op Arcenant has brought forth cheap grain from his barony of Asglen to
distribute it to the poor and the destitute of Southside.  More of a
temporary measure than a true solution, the hungry, unwashed masses can at
least know that, tonight, they will be less hungry.

TL; DR: Norrig improves Class Relations.

_________________________________________________________________________
The troops encamped around the capital have, for the most part, been
mobilized, called into action by King Amir ab Harmons.  Though more troops
remain in place than are normally located in Lithmore, positioned to help
protect the capital, the majority of them march northwards, commanded by the
king himself.  Their destination and plans are unknown, but with
apparently-captured Beresfield and several lands involved in that assault all
located in that direction, the rumors suggest numerous options.

TLDR: Amir mobilizes the Lithmorran troops, heading north.

_________________________________________________________________________
The state of the Law in Lithmore City has been flagging over the past several
months.  With the raised banners and looming conflicts the resources of the
Reeves have again been stretched thin.  Rather than going immediately to a
centralized drive for recruitment and training like her predecessors, the
current Lady Justiciar passes down an edict empowering Reeves to appoint
watchmen in every neighborhood where the institution is active.  Many have
begun seeking volunteers, and the Reeves have reached out to other city
leaders and notable persons to provide stipends, supplies, manpower, and
training for the new civil institution.

_________________________________________________________________________
Toward the end of Augustus, five caravans heavily laden with something or
other can be seen lumbering out of the gates of Lithmore City, heading in the
general direction of the duchy of Farin in the escort of an armed guard
consisting of men and women wearing the golden coin of the Merchants' Guild
as well as the three azure Capuan roses of the dul Alberti gentry family.
Though there is much speculation in regards to their cargo, the guards seem
to be keeping fairly tight-lipped about what exactly it is they're carrying
even as they depart from the city.

TL; DR: The Merchants' Guild seems to be sending some manner of aid to
Farin.

Save It was a drizzling, chilly Septembris morning that brought the Faithful
of Lithmore to River Square.  At the behest of Grand Inquisitor Sibylle dul
Fontaine, those so gathered bore witness to the cleansing of Vittore Veril, a
man for whom the Grand Inquisitor had little good to say.  Her words were
short, condeming him as a mage that brokered with demonkind, whose defiance
of the Lord continued even unto his cleansing.  She lamented that his soul
would forever wander without refuge in the Lord, but that he would at least
escape the Abyss.

(TLDR - Sibylle executes Vittore Veril)

Many in the city have supported the burgeoning institution of the night
watch, bards spread the word, priests mention service to one's home and
people ever more often in mass, supplies are sent from the hospital and from
civic minded merchants.  In the city, men trained and empowered by the
Reeves, wearing thick cloaks against the elements and carrying long poles
tipped with lanterns walk vigilantly through the small hours driving away
darkness, anxieties, and hooded figures and ensuring that doors remain
tightly locked.  The Reeves have seemed to benefit from the arrangement
themselves, shuffling talented individuals into regular guard roles or urging
them towards juridical education.

_________________________________________________________________________
Reports place King Amir ab Harmons and his troops encamped around Casterlay
Keep, maintaining a siege upon the fortress.  The Count of Casterlay is not
believed to be in residence, having assisted a number of other lords in an
assault on Beresfield on Roland ab Beaufort's behalf.  However, enough men
apparently man the keep to hold it against the king's forces thus far.  The
encamped men are reportedly spending their time carousing and keeping an eye
on the keep, while they help themselves to Casterlay's nearby crops, waiting
to starve them out.

TLDR: Amir's troops lay siege to Casterlay Keep, waiting out their stores.

The trumpets sound, and criers head out into the city to announce the
beginning of a Grand Tournament, sponsored by the Order and supported by the
city guilds and council.  Streamers are strung up, and excitement lingers in
the air of what will no doubt be quite a spectacle in the weeks to come what
with the flood of royal troops in and around the city.  All are invited to
attend and participate regardless of station or ability, several events will
be held the criers announce.  A melee, joust, target shooting and a possible
scavenger hunt for the little ones and less combat able!  Along with a
display of expert swordsmanship displayed by a Knight duel between
blademasters!

_________________________________________________________________________
(Race Relations shifts up from Terrible to Poor.) On a cold Novembris night,
the Columbina Cafe hosted a Magebane party for all the people to attend.  The
event, sponsored by the Town Hall, invited people to wear the traditional
masks, blurring the relevancy of skin color and thus bringing people from
other races closer, if only for a moment, if only for the warmth.

TL; DR: Race Relations improve marginally.

It was high noon on a cold Novembris day that Grand Inquisitor led Sela out
before the crowds and the burning post.  There she preached on the corrupting
nature of the Taint and the woman's crimes, murders and preying on the Order
members.  While it was said that Sela did not accept the Lord before she
went, there was something to be said about there being some relief in the
air.  The witch ended her life with a call out to the Tainted in the crowds -
that their time too would come.  Whether that was a threat or fatalism,
though, none might say.

(TLDR: Sela burns.  The rest shiver.)

Another cold afternoon rolls in, and the Faithful find themselves called by
the church bells to witness the pyring of Everett Benson by Grand Inquisitor
Sibylle dul Fontaine.  She spoke on the tragedy of the man's situation, used
as a pawn and slave by two wicked mages taking advantage of the Tainted
nature of his soul.  She lauded the strength of the man's heart, not just in
cracking open the murdering coven to which he belonged, but in bringing
closure on the loss of some of Lithmore's leadership.  The Grand Inquisitor
noted the man went to the Pyre in open avowal of his desire for the
Springs.

On an early Balasdes day, the Inquisitor known as Baylin dul Gardia stepped
out into Church Square mere hours after arriving to the city carrying the
fresh title of His Holy Honor, the Grand Inquisitor - newly appointed by the
High Synod.  After briefly meeting and accepting rare confessions from some
unsuspecting and lucky onlookers, he retreated to get settled into the new
role.
