As the period of mourning for those lost in the attacks by the Prince of Wights ends, the following proclamation is circulated throughout Falconcrest:
People of Falconcrest,
One month ago our Kingdom was attacked by the villainous, self-proclaimed Prince of Wights. An undead creature whose strength was seconded only to its hatred of the living. Many of our brave brothers and sisters fell during its attack, sacrificing themselves in order to protect us.
Among them, fell Lord Edward dan Brock and Baron Marcus Deveroux. Baron Deveroux fell while attempting to disrupt the ritual that was used on the town of Adwine’s Crossing. Though he was not fully successful, many lives were saved by his sacrifice.
Lord dan Brock fell after disrupting a similar ritual that would have targeted Citadel. Both of these men were heroes, and both were worthy of the title High Lord. So I, King Gilrandir Galathue, hereby grant Edward dan Brock and Marcus Deveroux the posthumus title of High Lord of Falconcrest.
Let their sacrifice not be forgotten and let them stand as examples of what it is we seek to become. With their passing, many have worried what the future holds for our Kingdom. For now, out of respect for their sacrifice I shall not name a High Lord. They have left large shoes to fill, and though we still keenly feel the voids left, we must continue to move forward.
I hereby grant the lands that were formally under the stewardship of High Lord Deveroux, including Rune Tower Castle, to Lady Lily Giselle. With this increased stewardship, I grant her the title of Duchess.
I raise Orrin Tycho to the nobility and grant him the title of Lord. I grant him stewardship over the lands that formerly were under the stewardship of High Lord dan Brock. This includes the adventuring outpost of Northwatch, and the pass into Ku’Vahl.
Honor Above All,
King Gilrandir Galathule
