The Free People’s Trial in Starkhaven

STORY INFO:

The Order of Arnath has taken it upon themselves to apprehend those responsible and bring justice to those who have committed crimes. A letter has circulated around regarding the recent undead scandal and those involved. It reads as follows…

“By the authority of the Hand of Arnath,

Recent interactions with residents of Serai and those who rose to accuse them have brought to light a great deal of new information. A handful of rumors have been confirmed true, another handful confirmed to be falsified. Many more have arisen from this conflict, and it has become the duty of the Order of Arnath to investigate these rumors and uncover the entire truth of the situation at hand. To this end, a series of trials will be held in Starkhaven to separate the truth from the lies.

At the present, preliminary investigations of Serai have uncovered the existence of reanimated bodies. This is not the charge for which the accused of Serai are being tried. The trial is to determine the nature and extent of the research conducted within Serai, including but not limited to the creation of such abominations, and to establish the guilt or innocence of each of the accused. Al Mafajjar is currently in the custody of the Order of Arnath and will remain so until his guilt or innocence can be determined. The presence of Al Haddad, Shiloh Dal-Rashid, Umm Haidar, Gerhard, and Ren-La, each of Serai are hereby officially required so that they may also stand trial.

Sakura Sakai is currently in the custody of the Order of Arath and will remain so until her guilt or innocence can be determined in the matter of attempted murder against the person of Vazra of the Spire. She has made a claim for justifiable murder.

The presence of Vazra of the Spire is hereby officially required so that he may stand trial for involvement with necromantic research, multiple accounts of murder, and bearing false witness.

The presence of Oberon of Key’s Crossing is hereby officially required so that he may stand trial for collaboration with agents of corruption.

Leniency may be offered to those who willingly surrender themselves to Order of Arnath custody. Accused persons who fail to attend will be tried in abstentia. Rewards may be offered for information leading to or assistance with the capture of these wanted individuals. Any and all persons bearing evidence for or against the individuals named in this letter are hereby summoned to Starkhaven to attend the trial and give their testimony. Those unwilling to attend will be considered silent on this matter, though letters sent in the case of an unavoidable absence shall be considered.

Please do not hesitate to bring forward to my Inquisitor any and all evidence for or against any of the accused named herein.

Bearing the authority His name carries,
As written by the Hand of Arnath”

At the recent market faire, it was witnessed that members representing the Order of Arnath peacefully apprehended a number of those involved in this trial. There are still others at large which now have bounties placed on them for their capture to either stand trial if brought in early enough or to be punished for their crimes if brought in after the trial.

A few weeks after the release of the letter of the trial, word has fully spread of a few critical points. One, is that those in custody are being treated fairly. Two, is that both Clan Nightriver and the Colony of Newhope have granted the Order of Arnath jurisdiction and even pledged aid if needed to see this through. Three, is that the Order of Arnath will not conduct the trial without a jury made up of representatives from other Clans and colonies but instead focuses on conducting the trial and carrying out the judgment agreed upon. And four, is that Clan Grimward has made it public that they are watching the results of the trial and will hold Clan Nightriver responsible if it does not meet their expectations. The already complicated trial involving the undead on the continent has now become intensely watched by eyes all across Mardrun.

The specifics of the trial and the charges being judged upon are made public for all to see.

  • Al Haddad is being charged with conducting undead research, collaborating with agents of corruption, possession of undead, murder of members of the Brotherhood and others as undead vessels, coordination of the hostility and murder of civilians in the Spire, and resisting arrest.
