Palanthas - On this last Linaras escaped murderer Torin Bloodeyes was spotted. Bloodeyes was seen entering the establishment known as the Solace Inn. Upon entering the establishment a patron left to inform the City Guard of Bloodeyes' whereabouts.
"I couldn't believe it," Tyl Ironhammer said. "I was just sitting there eating some fried potatoes when a man comes in and sits down at a table with a couple of other fellows. I couldn't but help but hearing them congratulate him on his escape from the ship. As I looked closer I saw it was him."
Ironhammer then left the inn and found a local guardsman, Ral uth Ditonair. He informed uth Ditonair of Bloodeyes location. Uth Ditonair then contacted three fellow guardsmen and they followed Ironhammer back to the inn.
Uth Ditonair told the Herald that, upon entering the inn, he spotted the wanted fugitive and approached him. He then ordered Bloodeyes to peacefully give himself up. Bloodeyes then according to reports attacked uth Ditonair.
"I swear he leaped up on the table," Ironhammer said. "He then brought that skillet of fried potatoes straight down on the guard's nose. The guard went down and as his fellow guardsmen came up to help those fellows he was eating with got into the brawl. The next thing I know half the inn is fighting and then I took a shot to my head."
The brawl spilled out from inside the inn to outside and into the streets. Several citizens were hurt including two of the guardsmen who came to arrest Bloodeyes. Bloodeyes managed to escape from the inn and has disappeared with his companions.
"This is terrible news," Guardsman Ulric Liton said. "The city needs to be careful and citizens should not try to arrest this man on their own. He is a dangerous man and that was proven again when trained guardsmen tried to apprehend him. If anyone has any information on Bloodeyes then please talk to a guardsmen."
