Part 10 of Last Days of the Third Era
THE COURT OF SHORNHELM REJECTS THE ACCUSATIONS FOR INSPIRING THE ASSASSINATION
Shornhelm, High Rock – The officials of the Court of Shornhelm reject the accusations that the Court was among the political inspirers of the assassinations of the late Emperor and the Imperial Family. In the lengthy public letter, special emphasis is placed on the notion that a provocation of such malice and magnitude hasn’t been thrown on the Court since the days of King Andorak. The Court officially requests that the Elder Council take decisive action against Councilor Jarth and threatens cessation of diplomatic communication with the Imperial City if their request isn’t promptly fulfilled.
LEGION REPORTS SIGHTINGS OF DAEDRA
Aleswell, Cyrodiil – Daedra have been seen in the vicinity of Aleswell, report the officials of Fort Caractacus. “We have received a number of suspicious reports from the villagers during the last few days, but today the sighting has been confirmed by one of my soldiers. The monster has been dispatched, so there’s no reason to worry,” says Captain Cornilius.
FIRST BLOOD IN OXENTOP
Oxentop, Skyrim – Our correspondent from Riften confirmed today that blood had been spilled in the violent attempt of the Dunmer community to overtake and burn a shrine to Shor in Oxentop. Several persons had been injured and two had been killed in the confrontation before the Legion forces intervened and managed to break up the fight. It is assumed that the local Dunmer attacked the shrine because of the rumors that three Dunmer boys who had disappeared last week had been held inside against their will. The Legion soldiers found no traces of the boys in the shrine, but the eldest priest was apprehended for spreading racial and religious hatred and sowing discontent among the populace. The Nord majority in the settlement threatens rebellion if the priest isn’t set free.
NO MORE ROOM IN THE IMPERIAL PRISON
The Imperial City, Cyrodiil – Tarmeneus Flavius, the Legion Colonel in charge of the Imperial Prison, confirmed for the Black Horse Currier that there is indeed no more room for new prisoners. This is a unique situation in the history of the Imperial Prison, one of the oldest Imperial institutions. Colonel Flavius said that the dungeons were already holding the optimal number of prisoners at the time of the tragic demise of the late Emperor, and that large numbers of detainees brought in during the last week flooded the Prison. “We were ill prepared for this – everybody was. As it stands, we have up to ten people in cells that normally hold three. It is difficult to feed the inmates and keep them clean in these circumstances, but we’re coping. We have tripled the number of guards inside and on the patrols. There is nothing to worry about.”
The Colonel refused to comment on the possibility that the conditions in the overcrowded Prison might lead to diseases that could spread in the City.
