Eye In the Crowd – The Knight and the Heresy
by JOSHUASIGEP44, Staff Writer
Palanthas - Last Kirinor the body of Bors Ekland was found in a warehouse on the water front by the City Guard. This incident in and of itself is not that unusual. That said, finding the body of a Knight of the Crown with the name "Androctus" craved into his breastplate is quite out of the ordinary.
After reviewing all reports Bors was found to be quite the standard barrier for the Knighthood. With no negative marks on his record Bors had received citation after citation for exemplary service to the order.
Indeed, it is strange that Bors Ekland, a shining example of a knight, should be found dead with the name of "Androctus", a long dead knight from the time of Vinas Solamnus himself, craved into his armor. Androctus wrote a volume of the measure that contained controversial teachings. He was later driven out of his order and lost to the annals of history. So the Herald wants to know...
"What does the finding of the Dead Knight's body mean to you?"
Javis Hughgar,traveling adventurer: "So a lone knight has turned up dead. What in the Abyss is so dammed important about that? How many people from this city turn up dead, murdered in some god forsaken alleyway, every morning? These Solamnic Knights really need to get their act together. It's all this city needs is some internal turmoil. The senate should step in and regale the Knights' actions in the Cityhome."
Jashua Duglar, merchant: "I'm sad for the knight, I really am, but how does this affect me? I mean their order has fought for this city time and time again, but it's their business. The death of one of their own and all."
O'nak uth Konhom, retired Knight of the Rose: "It's a damn shame that some rebel faction inside of the order has murdered one of their on. That's right I said rebel faction. Who else could it be? Ask anyone in the streets who Androctus is, and see what they tell you. I can guarantee you that you won't get one correct answer. Ask the same question to anyone who has ever studied the Measure and you will get a wince."
