In an unexpected turn of events, Princess Salma along with her Shining Blade force have retaken Lion’s Arch. This is very exciting and I rushed to Kryta’s capital to visit her and see the new changes.

Upon arriving in Lion’s Arch, I noticed a new guard standing near the previously inaccessible gate that leads to a huge tower. Because of my status as an adventurer and supporter of Salma, they let me through the gate. A new flag hangs inside Salma’s court; a golden griffon with one paw raised, replacing the White Mantle’s symbol.

During my patrols of Kryta, I often return back to Princess Salma to report my findings and listen to her advice. When war first broke out, everyone was on edge. As time passed, some adventurers became less worried about a potential war and went on with their lives. However Salma has reassured me that something will happen and it’s only a matter of time.

Lately I have spent most of my time following up on tips the Shining Blade has given me in order to keep a close eye on the war in Kryta. Before the rise of this conflict I spent my days looking over my epic diary: A Tyrian Odyssey and fine tuning older passages. So even though I despise having to fight in another war, I do enjoy helping others as best I can.

Unfortunately the tip I received earlier today was not delivered soon enough, as I was too late to save poor Farmer Milton from High Inquisitor Toriimo. When I arrived on the scene his “trial” was already underway and just as I was in reach of the High Inquisitor they set Milton on fire. What fiends! To make the situation worse, it was decided that the destruction would not end with one man’s life. No, the entire village would burn down and those close to Farmer Milton (including the cowardly Layman Josef) were to be eliminated.

Besides the war in Kryta, a few other news-worthy events have occurred recently, such as the trial of Zinn.

I am personally very good friends with many important Asurans, most of which were at the trial today. However the manner in which they organized and carried out the trial is unfair. I suppose the White Mantle would rejoice at the no-nonsense approach to punishing the guilty, but even a Kaineng City bureaucrat would oppose these Asuran methods.

In less than an hour, they put together a trial and found Zinn guilty, mostly due to “Reckless instigation of mayhem WITHOUT a permit”. The punishment agreed upon by the Arcane Council was banishment from all Asuran areas for 10 years. My thoughts on this punishment are mixed. If they wanted to keep him out of trouble they should have just imprisoned him, because now he can roam freely and cause more problems. On the other hand, the trial was a sham and no one should have themselves judged in such a way.
