Dot Warner: Britain continues to fare well, and the citizens are enjoying their new commons...mostly.
Dot Warner: I've received a few complaints regarding the new "Vault" building.
Dot Warner: Many were unaware of how...monolithic...the design was and say it's a blight on the city center.
Dot Warner: The fact that the interior is quite stark, and that services have yet to be offered, isn't helping public opinion.
Dot Warner: *sighs*
Dot Warner: Plans are afoot to go after the "Dark Unborn" later this month, likely on the 30th...a Wednesday.

Magnus Grey: The Sodal of the Pith, a group of elven separatists, disrupted the festivities.
Magnus Grey: Their leader was arrested, but unfortunately, several of their member were killed by a third party.

Magnus Grey: The Royal Guard plans to begin initial patrols around the human settlements in the Lost Lands.
Magnus Grey: We are already coordinating with the Order of the Silver Serpent and Rangers' Guild there as well.
