Heroes of Travance,
As a ranking noble of Pendarvin, it is imperative I, Sir Arley, address the Abduction of Lady Ilana Darkwood.
The following actions are being taken to ensure peace in the land until the safe return of Lady Ilana:
To protect Pendarvin from any enemies who wish to use this time to destabilize the land, Sir Grimjkell Eirson is maintaining peace as acting Warlord.
Sir Arradir the Insightful and Ergos Seledari are both appointed co-Viceroy, to manage all day-to-day civil matters in the land and ensure governmental and administrative processes do not delay in the coming weeks.
Stewardships are taken up by vassals to make sure all people of Pendarvin feel supported in these unprecedented times. Notably, for his intelligence and trustworthiness, Isaac McGhallagan, is promoted to Steward of Culpepper farms.
I, Sir Arley Bjerke, am leading the task force charged with bringing Lady Ilana back home. I have appointed Camellia Mordren as my Squire and Jame Apostrophe as Counsel to the task force.
Anyone who wishes to join or assist in the task force is welcome. Please contact Jame to receive detailed and current information. Provide relevant personal information or skills, so we may best fit you into our plans. Any and all new information regarding the matter at hand, should be directed to me. If I am unavailable, direct information to Camellia.
I encourage the leaders of the other lands to instate their own respective contingency plans in case of emergency.
(OOG: This is much messier handwriting, and is obviously Arley's)
Sir Arley Bjerke the Valiant
P.S. To those who have taken Lady Ilana, I promise this - we will have our Lady returned by negotiation or by blood. It is inevitable. The choice is yours.
