The Royal court is on a break, the Hummingbird Emporium is also taking a week off from their usual opening hours and not a lot of big events going on either, but maybe it means there is time to visit some of the more shops opening regularly.

King's Footmen release pirate captain - Royal Navy pursues

30-07-2022 BY Hardhy Lester / Editor IN Misc
Apparently it is not beyond the Golf Company - aka - The King's Footmen to deal with pirates. That is, if one of their own is captured. Saturday night last week Sergeant John Hartman of the King's Footmen was captured in Old Town during an ambush. An old lady appeared to have twisted her ankle, and in an uncommon act of caring the Sergeant offered to help the lady get home. Unfortunately for him, and I am sure now a teaching of why you don't help citizens of the city, it turned out to be an ambush as four pirates from the notorious ship "The Resolute" sprang forth from the shadows once the Sergeant and the injured lady arrived at what she claimed was her home. Sergeant Hartman was brought to Westfall unconscious, bound and gagged and was kept captive in one of the many alcoves along the coastline. .....[READ MORE]

Short News (Week 29)

Another week passes, and yet more things continue to happen. Amazing, isn’t it? Here’s a few of those things, in no particular order.

From Peg Legs to Artificial Eyes

Never before have there been as many prosthetics among the people of the Alliance. The reason, of course, are the many injuries from the Fourth War and the discovery, or rather re-discovery of Mechagon Island, opening up so many technological and medical advancements in that direction. More people than ever now walk around with artificial limbs, and some of them choose to give them something extra, too. Arcane legs, arms with built-in grappling hooks, hands made out of rock. The possibilities seem to be endless, and the numbers of prosthetics just keep climbing.

Bodypile mystery finally solved!

26-07-2022 BY Hardhy Lester IN Misc
This is one of the stories which has nagged me for a while, but I think I finally solved it. With some help. Anyway, let us start from the beginning. A few weeks ago, people who regularly visit the Cathedral Of Light, well, the district as a whole really, would be greeted with the sight of quite the pile of bodies on the steps to the Cathedral. No reason or rhyme to their appearance, genders, races, gear, all over the place, but neither looked entirely civilian. The local authorities did their best to clean up the mess. According to sanitation worker Werner Landfill then they had people go pick up the corpses, load them on carts and move them towards the morgue. But the bodies never made it there. Once at the morgue the sanitation workers went to offload the smelling bodies, but to their surprise - they had.....[READ MORE]

A new tale of two jacks?

21-07-2022 BY Hardhy Lester IN Misc
Long time ago - well 7 months ago - roughly - I did an article in relation to the anniversary of the Dalaran Trade nights. As part of that I interviewed Jack Silver and Jack Skinner about their experiences running a shop in Dalaran. Neither was entirely happy with how they were represented in that article, so I offered them a new interview, and a new article. This is that article. It took a while due to scheduling issues - but in a way that only makes it more interesting. Longer time has passed which perhaps makes the reflections more interesting.
