Hear ye, hear ye!

By the order of our monarch, the exile of Roland ab Harmon has been ratified
by the Keeper of the Seal for the reason of:

For defying the decisions of the Baronial Council and striking up a civil war
against the duly chosen King of Lithmore, Sibylle officially names Roland
Beaufort Exile from the Kingdom.

The aforementioned is granted three days leave to reach the borders of the
Five Duchies before their presence within the realm is a crime punishable by
death.  All assets owned by the aforementioned are hereby seized by the order
of the Crown.  No loyal citizen shall provide them succor.  Harm done against
the personage of the exiled is no crime in the eyes of the law, nor the Lord
of the Springs.

Just before dawn on a chilled Circadi morning, the High Synod convened in the
cathedral to elect a new Grand Inquisitor.  Deliberations took many hours. 
It was not until well after midday that the former Inquisitor Phyllis ab Syme
accepted the mantle.  Her electoral support is rumored to have come both both
from Lithmore and from Montford, where she was trained.
Bystanders report that her first official act as Grand Inquisitor was to
retrieve a box of her personal belongings from Ahalin, where she was held
under the orders of the recently deposed Lucretia ab Sarin.  On her return to
the cathedral, box in hand, she simply announced that she hopes to serve the
Lord of the Springs and the Kingdom's inhabitants with humility before
climbing the steps.

As it seems to be, things are rolling over the Southside.  After a long
period of relative quiet in the slums, it appears to be brewing something
once more.  After a string of rampant skullduggery on the north side, an
amalgamation of fine goods and other rather conspicuous items in the pawn
shops in the south, it appears there has been a new rise to power among their
more shadowed group.  Local businesses have begun paying their taxes again,
and, conveniently enough, new thugs have been sighted starting new mischief
from this sector of the city.  The most recent of these events the cite the
dropping of an unrecognized Southside soul of Daravi, dead and covered in
muck dropped outside the church in the north side of the city, 'MAGE' carved
into their chest.  Rumor has it they were bound in shackles bearing the
Justiciar's seal, the scales of justice.

Rising concerns over a divide between the social classes of Lithmore
accompanies rumors of a rash of break-ins throughout Lithmore.  In the wake
of these events, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Perelle op Symons, calls
for those who can to set aside distrust and employ those of lesser standing
to 'gainful and honest' opportunities - clearly attempting to draw a line
between those who are merely Freemen and the outright criminal.  

Stepping up with her own efforts, Town Hall has begun opening its doors to
couriers, clerks, and other laborers of varying sorts, especially targeting
what services exist for the middle and southern side of Lithmore.

 The Holy Order executes Percivale and Truth for magery, Brands Eiphraem

Bells rang out on a cool Aprilis day, gathering the Faithful to River Square.
Citizens Percivale le Loring and Truth Crestmont were led from Ahalin to the
burning post.  Grand Inquisitor ab Syme led the assembled faithful in a brief
sermon on the Law of Consortion and the urgent need for lesser sin to be
tempered by the practice of faith before it further festers during the pair's
cleansing the pair's cleansing.

With an iron heated in the coals of the still burning Pyre, Inquisitor Mazzo
branded Eiphraem on the back of his hand for having sought to take matters of
the Priesthood into his own.  His penance: to bear the mark publicly for one
year, that he may meditate upon his failures to report sin; for attempting to
take matters of the soul into his own hands.

On the evening of Balasdes, Aprilis 28, 385 after a day of flying rumors and
tumultuous happenings all throughout the City of Lithmore the Lady Justiciar
Lyonie dul Acatsia brought a young man out of Ahalin tower flanked by her
Reeves.  Upon taking her steps up the platform she pronounced the many crimes
of the Tenebrae, Kinney Mcclachlan: theft; the murder of at least three
Reeves including Otto Eyeler, household guards, and merchants; assault;
trespassing; and possession of various deadly poisons with an intention to
make attempts on her own life and the lives of others.  Pronouncing that the
Law would not tolerate those who sowed terror, disunity, and death among the
people.  At the conclusion of the speech the Reeve led the young man to the
platform, coiled the noose about his neck and opened the trapdoor hanging him
from the neck until dead.

It was a chilly Maius of 385 morning when the emissaries of the Grandmaster
council of the Knights Lithmorran gathered in the Holy City's keep to address
the matter of Dame Vlora von Vashaak's stepping down as Earl Marshall, after
a second, long tenure of service in which she saw all of her chapter's Knight
Venerables betraying their oaths and participating in the Regicide of Queen
Celeste I ab Samael.

All but one.

Having been offered the opportunity repeatedly in the past by Vlora von
Vashaak, Lans ab Durandal, who did not participate in the rebellion, finally
relented and accepted the honor.  The Grandmasters agreed with her decision,
and declared the man the new Lord Earl Marshall.

He did not make any public speeches, and instead spent the day in solitary
prayer in the Keep's chapel.

An uneasy but optimistic accord grows between those of high and low birth in
Lithmore.  Increased opportunities to work together - and thus gain each
other's relative trust - have put a mend to social relations in Lithmore. 
For the moment, at least, those of differing status gather in taverns,
sharing drinks, stories, and some sense of togetherness against other threats
to the city's stability...  With proper manners, of course.

A murmur ripples through Southside.  As all residents of Lithmore benefit
from increased opportunities for gainful employment, so too have
opportunities for not-so-honest work within Southside itself.  

Local gambling dens and other such houses of disrepute are suddenly doing a
booming trade, as impoverished workers either test their luck or find a need
to spend that which is suddenly burning holes in their coin pouches.  

And, most curiously of all, despite the apparent execution of the Tenebrae of
the Brotherhood of Common Goods, the crimes which were Kinney McLachlan's
calling card have continued.  Hooded and masked figures terrorizing the city.
Breaking and entering.  Murdering.  Making off with everything including the
kitchen sink.

Following the efforts of the Chancellor of the Exchequer to employ those of
lesser standing into trades and labors and with what seems to be an ever
mounting wave of crime; the Reeves have proposed their own style of the
program, seeking to expand its scope.  Lesser assaults, loitering, sale of
prohibited substances are punished as usual with levies and lashings but the
Reeves also seek to press gang some such figures into manual labors outside
the capital with seasons of modestly remunerated indenture, mostly in the
northern baronies where it is rumored that large construction projects are
taking place, but also urging other domains and economic concerns to take on
such far-flung penal indenture with their own projects.  

At the same time many of the Reeves in the city, weary from the non-stop
conflicts with the Brotherhood are being shuffled out to the baronies to
recovery and replaced with demilitarized levies and camp marshals.

It remains to be seen if these efforts will have a big enough impact to turn
the tide on what has become a relentless irregular war within the City of
Lithmore.

As the days wear on the impacts of Reeve efforts begin to be felt throughout
the city.  Though criminal activity has been on the upswing, with new, more
aggressive faces entering the Reeve ranks and with brotherhood assets finding
themselves increasingly removed from the city, the project of penal indenture
begun by the Justiciar seems to be having the intended effect.  Dealers,
informants, and low level operators are sent far afield to do labor as
builders, caravan porters, and day laborers throughout greater Lithmore,
robbing the criminal organization, at least momentarily, of the ability to
gather information and coin as effectively.

It's difficult to determine the long term effects of this policy, or any of
the impacts it may have on the economic state of the kingdom but the flow of
most of these workers northward has made one thing, before only rumored,
abundantly clear: there is a wall along the long border of Amhurst and it
grows longer and taller by the day.

The excommunication of Roland ab Harmon has been ratified by the High Synod
for the reason of:

For flagrant denial of his place in society, for circumvention of Church and
Patriarchal authority in his coronation, and for the continued leading of
others into gross Sinning and revolt against the Crown.  He has brought
violence and death against the Faithful of Lithmore and the Realm and has

sin

No good Davite shall provide the excommunicant succor.  All assets owned by

Following the High Synod's decision to reverse their position of neutrality
in the conflict between would-be kings Amir ab Harmons and Roland ab
Beaufort-Harmon, previously held as a secular matter and reportedly protested
by Grand Inquisitor Phyllis ab Syme, a schism seems to be erupting in the
church.  The Vandagan Cardinal has officially announced that his priests do
not acknowledge the rights of the synod to excommunicate the kingdom's
rightful patriarch, and accuses them of bowing to undue Lithmorran political
influence.

Roland, for his part, notes that he had not chosen to revisit the official
removal of the patriarchy from the true Harmon line out of respect for the
ongoing conflict and the church's decision to remain neutral in his conflict
with Amir.  It would have been a matter to address in peaceful times.  The
High Synod in Lithmore has left him no choice, however.  He will accept the
Vandagan Cardinal's attestation that he should be serving as the rightful
head of the church and he does not acknowledge his so-called
excommunication.

Many rural areas reportedly sympathize with these Harmon patriarchal
leanings, and interest has stirred across the other duchies, raising tensions
and doubts in an area that was previously unassailable.  None have leaped to
make official announcements, seemingly eager to distance themselves from it. 
The largest statement seems to come from Farin, protesting that the enemies
of the faith are sure to leap at this division: they report increased
activity along the Front.  However, even they do not claim which side of the
division is in the right.  Merchants across Vavard and Tubor protest that
trade must go on, that the health of the kingdom demands the continued health
of the economy and that these matters cannot be allowed to impact that.

TLDR: After Roland is excommunicated by the Holy Synod in Lithmore, a rift
seems to be emerging between the Order in Lithmore and Vandago, with Vandago
refusing to acknowledge the excommunication and claiming Roland as
patriarch.

As Yule festivities begin and the weather grows colder, rumors of the long
awaited marriage between Grand Master Emicho Lionhart and Nursia Silvia
Clough reach a fever pitch as it seems the couple have announced a date for
the festivities.

The couple plan to wed on Decembris 24th, only a few days before the
Masquerade hosted by the venerable Estone le Serlok.  The ceremony will take
place at the Viridian Hothouse Gardens with a reception to follow at the
Hollow Globe.

It has been confirmed that the general populace is welcome to attend both the
ceremony and reception after, though invitations have been sent to some close
friends and well-to-dos.

(OOC: TL DR: Silvia and Emicho are getting married and everybody is welcome
to come!  This is to take place Friday, June 26th, at 18:00 server time.)

On a blustery Decembris evening, amidst Lithmore's celebration of the Yule
holiday and the longest days of the year, bells rang throughout the city to
summon the faithful to River Square to witness the pyring of one Zane dul
Mercutio.  To some, this event seemed like deja vu, as the man was branded by
the Holy Inquisition only a few months prior.

Grand Inquisitor Phyllis ab Syme gave a brief sermon in which she expressed
that both she and the city had failed through their inability to see dul
Mercutio rehabilitated.  She reminded the flock that second chances were few
and that the garden of one's soul, if left untended, grows thick with weeds
that cannot be untangled without the garden being replanted anew.  The
Inquisitor asked that the city pray for dul Mercutio's soul before she set
him ablaze.

In the name of His Royal Majesty, Seneschal Sibylle dul Fontaine is opening
the Council coffers for a plethora of small jobs and tasks aimed at fixing
community problems.  These tasks are prioritized to those with jobs affected
by the season, so the poorest are finding temporary jobs that often find them
giving back to local citizens: delivering food to old folks, fixing up drafty
buildings, hauling supplies and supervising job sites.  They're not long term
work, but it's a way to increase slow earnings during the winter without the
shame of taking a handout for the able-bodied.  Those that do need the help
are able to apply for it with runners sent across the city.

On a chilly evening on Januarius the 17th, Her Holy Honour Grand Inquisitor
Phyllis ab Syme presented Rowen Darkau to the crowd in River Square, where he
was pyred for heresy.  

The crimson-clad Inquisitor gave a brief sermon about how the appearance of
lesser sins often signal greater damage to the soul.  She encouraged
individuals to report any lesser failings to the Holy Order, lest individuals
be required to face the pyre to cleanse the taint festering deep within.

There have been whisperings about the Madison and the Tubori quarter about
meetings between the Prime Medicus, the Epion, and Lady le Kaluna in various
places about the city.  There have been several over the past months, and
those who have gotten close enough have heard something about an attempt at
putting a health clinic in the Tubori quarter.  Something small and
efficient, likely near the docks.
