Oh, it is with EXTREME REGRET that I'll miss this weekend's "entertainment/comeuppance" but I have a prior commitment elsewhere.  I do hope to hear all the gory details regarding administration of justice!!!  ;-D

  More information on the Trimaran "highway robbery."

  The facts of the Incident are these:

  Apparently, the royal coach of Trimaris was stopped just outside the Gulf War site by the impediment of a body in the road.  Larissa, Princess of Trimaris, stepped out to show charity and give alms to the peasant when the man rose abruptly, drew and brandished a bent sword, and as the note I have lately received from Prince Duncan states: "declared in a slurred but powerful breath of beer and herring, 'None shall pass the Baron of Ravensfort lest they render proper tribute... silver or smooches, my saucey Trimaran strudel!?"

  His Highness did not actually kill the man at that point.  In addition to the various other items of uncertain provenance- church relics, french "safety garments", a flask, two teeth, dice, a lewd script, an ugly hat, and playing cards decorated with the images of Ansteorran Queens in various states of undress- some papers flew off the body during the drubbing which seemed to support the man's claim of legitimate Ansteorran citizenship and titles.  We believe this man is none other than Hanse Kleermaker, escaped villain, actor, and tailor, fleeing from his deeds here at home.  Rather than cause an incident so soon after GW Duncan sent me a letter of ransom. 

  I have procured most of the ransom asked and sent it along to HRH Duncan- one BBQ sandwich and a cask of Ansteorran Stout- but am relying on Trimaran generosity to allow me more time to replace the gown Hanse purged himself upon during the fracas.  Duncan has promised that he will be delivered to me in time for Saturday's festivities at the court at Ravensfort where I, Sir Dieterich Kempenich von Eltz, will deliver Hanse Kleermaker to the proper authorities.

  If you or anyone you know has received injury of Hanse, now is the time to get yours.  The Crown, Their Excellencies Ravensfort (old and new), Bryn Gwylad, and Bjornsborg will be there so surely some justice must be forthcoming.  

  A Humble Knight,
  Sir Dieterich

    I ran into a strange instance on the way back from Gulf Wars this weekend.

     I came across a Trimarin rider coming back from the east.   He was
    really upset.  When I offered my help, he refused mumbling something
    about Ansteorrans, Ravensfort and their Highnesses.

    Does anybody know anything about this?
