Merchants just outside of the Spice Market are breathing easier today, for a number of reasons. Four bodies were carted out by Brother Battle auxiliaries yesterday, reeking of burned flesh and melted fat. The stench took nearly a day to clear despite a fair breeze coming off of the Gulf.
Details of yesterday's immolations have started to emerge from the dozens of rumors that are being spread. The consensus is that the preacher Father Giovanus and his increasingly devoted flock capture four Kurgans and set them on fire for the crimes of heresy and spreading false religion to the faithful. Three Brother Battle, headed by Brother Inspector Tulvio, arrived during the trial but did little to stop the executions, though this last point is a matter of some dispute.
The four Kurgans were not the only individuals targeted by the faithful last night. Several soldiers wearing the tabard of Don Furio de Aragon, a recently arrived crusading knight, shattered the windows of a small rug store that had had Kurgan letters written on it. Two young women, known to be women of ill-repute favored by a visiting Kurgan merchant, were accosted and branded with the Jumpcross on their right breasts by unknown assailants. Finally, a man was left hanging from a wooden foot-bridge near East Goat street, an upside down jumpcross painted in blue on his chest and a handful of daisies tied to his hand by a leather cord.
===============================- (IC) Rumors -================================ Message: 1/45 Posted Author Return of Cephus of Justinian Dec 01 2012 Anonymous ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ The return of a knight from captivity is usually an insignificant event. The recent return of Cephus of Justinian however has had some traction due to the nature of the knight's storied history. Believed to have fallen during the fall of Remle after having saved his Lord from a killing blow and fending off four Kurgans to get him to safety; it seems the former knight captain and master of arms spent the last eight years in captivity. Recently escaped he has returned to Akko emaciated and haggard from the long years of his imprisonment. The early fifties knight was once a noteworthy competitor in tournaments having been a tournament champion more than once in both mounted and melee events. Cephus was a native who surprisingly to many took up the banner of Hugh of Justinian and served as his first and oldest knight. His name is also notable to many natives as he trained and worked with many noteworthy knights, heirs, and nobility whom have benefited from his tutelage. He was known to be exceptionally loyal, steadfast, compassionate, courageous, and personable. ==============================================================================
