Numerous reports have come in to the office of The Daily Creeper telling us that the weird obsidian formations around the ruins of Lukkerdam have been growing, fast, covering a large area of Ceardia. The obsidian has now reached the borders of Silver Edge. The Daily Creeper have asked the Mayor of Silver Edge for feedback on the matter but all he gave in response was “There is still time, I can’t say more, I’m sorry”. The Regalian Council sent out four warships to investigate but there is currently no information about where the warships are or if they have made any progress. The council states that the situation will be handled but citizens in and around Silver Edge should temporarily evacuate until further notice. There are of course plenty of rumors going around regarding the growing obsidian and one of the more common rumors tells us that the obsidian is in fact a living creature. How such a “creature” would even exist is of course a good question and the Regalian Council encourages everyone to disregard all such information.
The dark stone and lava that once was the city known as Lukkerdam is moving. With less than two months left till the one year memorial of the “Festival Massacre” this sure is unsettling information for some. The mayor of Silver Edge, Ninja Baver, says in an interview that anyone who lives close to the ruins of Old Lukkerdam should evacuate as soon as possible. He also claims that citizens of Silver Edge should consider the same. The Regalian council announces that there is no danger and nothing to fear. The Regalian council also state that Mr. Baver is in no position to suggest such a serious action since it may cause unnecessary panic and riots. In a last announcement the Regalian council asks everyone to stay away from the location of the old Lukkerdam ruins as it is now a matter for the council to take care of.

The Daily Creeper – Festival Massacre!
The Imperial Archives of Regalia have announced to the public that they will be transferring a Elven History Codex, which they currently have in their possession, to the Regalian Academy of Science and Magic.
This decision was made by regulators of the Archives in an effort to help the young and bright minds of Aloria become better informed of their history. With the recent Crimson Inquisition and other frightful things happening in our city it is understandable how to this reporter why this action is being taken.
The Codex is planned on being moved directly from the Archives to the Academy and reports say that it shall be heavily guarded by the Emperor’s personal bodyguard force. Others say that it will be moved more discreetly, but I think that is the lesser story here.
When the Codex arrives it will be stored in the upper level of the Academy until a proper place is made for it to be put on display. Hopefully once this is completed all Regalians can have an opportunity to gain a new insight into our past.
Regalia officials are currently investigating a bank robbery that happened late last night in the Noble District of the city.
The robbery occurred at the Bank of Regalia on Friday, while the bank was closed.
Regalian authorities say the suspect were employed at the bank a few months before and the robbery must have been planned before they received the jobs. They were able to enter the bank with the banker’s keys to the vault that were stolen the day before.
After obtaining an undisclosed amount of silver, diamonds, gold, emeralds, and iron the perpetrators and their unknown accomplices fled on foot.
The suspects were last seen heading north towards the Poor District and are suspected to have escaped through a sewer entrance somewhere in the Poor or Common district.
The bank was empty except for one solitary teller who had stayed late to finish closing out his window. When he say the suspects come into the bank he hid under a table in the back room until the whole thing was over. For safety reasons the witness has asked to remain anonymous.
The witness describes the suspects as males of average height and average build. He also saw that they were wearing dark loosely fitting clothes made of leather, also they had on what looked like skull masks so it has been quite hard trying to identify them. Some of them were seen in normal clothing and seemed to be in charge of the robbery.
The Regalian Academy of Literature and Science proudly presents their latest creation which can be found in the middle of the Regalia city square. The invention is called TAMITS which is short for “The Academys Magically Influenced Transport System”.
The TAMITS only have one target destination at a time. This target destination is occasionally changed and is usually some major point of interest.
Yesterday night, a large explosion was heard in central Regalia as shopkeepers were about to close their shops and head home. After the confusion cleared, everyone gazed at the Crimson tower in horror as the entire Crimson Headquarters was one large blazing inferno. The smoke reached far and beyond into the clouds to the point where far-off warfleets rushed back to the capital in fear of an invasion. Many citizens attempted to put out the fire, but due to the size of the building bystanders could only watch and see the tower collapse in on itself, crushing the formerly proud headquarters of the Crimson Inquisition.
Immediately after the fire, explosive residues and redstone was found, indicating the fire was made with the intent to destroy the headquarters. Supreme Reverend Wolffram summoned the Imperial advisors, and after some debating, decided to formally disband the Crimson Inquisition. Following the Solaris Insurrection across several continents, the situation concerning the Inquisition became more unstable in Regalia as the military arm participated in the Solaris Insurrection and was occupied elsewhere. Regalian shipping brought in thousands of refugees from war torn provinces as communication between 9thlegion and Alamut deteriorated, the two cornerstones of the Inquisition. Following the coalition’s formal declaration of war on the Solaris Insurrection, 9thlegion formally declared hostilities to parties directly connected to 9thlegion. While they are not at war at writing of this news, they are expected to clash eventually and relations are at an all time low to the point of no cooperation.
Supreme Reverend Wolffram gave a speech at the palace steps to the concerned citizens waiting for answers: “The situation between Solaris and the Coalition is threatening to destabilize our internal affairs against the vampire scourge and enemies of the Regalian Empire. As the contracted factions are no longer capable to fulfill their role to us, we have decided to formally disband the Crimson Inquisition. While the vampire protection and prosecution effectively ends with this, we do not intend to sit idly by and let the vampires take a hold of Regalia. We are extending additional executive powers to the Violet Order, the Imperial palace guards of the Emperor.”
Concerned citizens gather daily at the square to discuss events in the other provinces. Where will the Solaris Insurrection lead to? What of the vampire prosecution? Why is the Regalian navy sending more warships to patrol the shorelines?
A recent increase in Quartz demand and prices in Regalia has caused the existing mining company to no longer be capable of providing the need for Quartz. The Regalian finance ministry has decided to open up a permanent travel ship from Regalia to Kelmoria to allow private mining companies to dig up the rare new material, in the hopes that flooding the markets will solve the shortages.
Kelmoria was found a long time ago by Laura Redblock, but the island was quickly abandoned due to the general lack of useful resources. There were never any signs of people having lived on this island, but initial search parties have never gone far inland. The Island itself has a temperate climate, it is also filled with extremely dense forests. The Island itself is assumed to have been made by the now inactive volcano that dominates the island. Geologists also assume the Quartz has formed in the bellows of the Volcano. Due to recent technological developments in Redstone craft, the white stone has suddenly become valuable. A small mining company was placed by the Academy several years largely to study the effects of Quartz to redstone circuitry and for use as building material.
As soon as the travel ship has been set up, you can sail to Kelmoria with the green-blue striped sails ship.
Due to the size of Kelmoria, the 16 chunk rule does not apply to this map. Instead, a 6 chunk rule applies, meaning you should settle at least 100 or so blocks away from other people.

Dear readers, today we have some big news. Regalia is going to be the new center of civilization as we know it. Till now Silver Edge has had this role;however, after a discussion between the supreme reverend of Regalia (Wolffram) and the mayor of Silver Edge (Ninja Baver), it was decided that the two cities should unite and join forces.
With the resources that Regalia will offer to all of it’s citizens everyone is now encouraged to move there. Places such as Silverwind and Prospera will become obsolete, meaning all ship travel and the majority of trade will go through Regalia instead. You can rent your own house in the city, travel to every known corner of the world or even get a market stall to become rich. Regalia has endless possibilities and is truly a brighter future for us all.

Today is a historic day for SilverEdge. Last night, the Regalian religious capital ship called the Holy Flame arrived carrying the Supreme Reverend of Regalia named Wolffram. Regalian diplomats cited his approval was required to fully ratify the trade agreement between SilverEdge and Regalia. After a meeting with the mayor of SilverEdge, the Supreme Reverend gave a fairly firm and direct answer to our question as to why Regalia came to SilverEdge to sign a trade agreement.
While SilverEdge is a heretical city infested with the evil fouls of this earth, our holy Emperor Justinian the Third felt it was necessary to bring closer ties between Regalia and the other human settlements around the world.
The Supreme Reverend stated he will stay in SilverEdge for the time being, in order to provide service to all who wish to convert to the Regalian faith. Despite the peaceful intentions, some people are questioning the need to bring two formidable warships for a trade agreement. The Daily Creeper will, as allways, keep you informed of the latest information about Regalia.
