It is rumored that another meeting took place between the Ebon Blade Captain, his associate Vaelen and Mag.

The trio talked about the defenses of the tent town, and it appeared as if an agreement was reached about the Soubar's ruined 'ramparts'. Namely, the mercenary company was given Mag's permission to launch a project of patching the remaining walls.

The de facto ruler of Soubar left the responsibility of finding workers and resources to the mercenaries, but she promised to contact an acquaintance of hers who is rumored to be an architect or an engineer of sorts in regards to the construction of simple watchtowers.

What will come out of this endeavor remains to be seen.

The village of Tymount has been attacked by trolls, driven forward by a force of devils. The creatures were intercepted, however, by an assembly of adventurers led by the Order of the Radiant Heart. The villagers were evacuated to Baldur's Gate and many trolls and devils slain.

It is rumored that the efforts of the Ebon Blade Mercenary Company toward rebuilding the Soubar's Militia are well underway. Sergeant Harlos Lackman, who seems to be in charge of the recruitment and training, has been seen talking with Mag and pestering the locals with the offer of coin and training.

On a different note, the whole company amassed in front of their Keep early in the morning the other day and soon disappeared in the bright flash. Witnesses claimed that hours later the band teleported back atop of their tower and that the lights flashed twice this time. Some mentioned that crying and lament of women accompanied them.

Having heard from a few sources similar tales about how the residents and travelers to and from Soubar were being chased, questioned, threatened and harassed by some of the Gate-bound factions, Mag decided to investigate these curious rumors. Resolved to get to the bottom of this, she spoke with her usual contacts among the merchants, the locals and even some of the travelers passing through her tavern. Coin, drinks and even a free bowl of soup were offered to those who were willing to talk, and she would still be willing to listen to whoever came forward with any relevant information.

While the bigger picture was yet to be painted, the leader of Soubar knew that some steps had to be taken.
///Those wishing to speak to Mag can approach her:
1. via public forum RP here: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=50843
or
2. by sending a PM to me with this tag: [IC-MeetingMag]///

Earlier today Mag could have been seen hunched over her bar's counter with a quill in one hand, a drink in the other, and a look of somewhat grim determination playing on her features. It took a while before she finished drafting a few missives, each sealed with the same white wax bearing the same simple seal. After a moment of consideration, Soubar's leader divided the letters into two piles. In silence and without hurry, she finished her drink, looked to the doe-eyed barmaid and beckoned her closer.


"Find Finnegan and have him deliver these," she pointed to pile on the left. "Pay him the usual fee," a hefty pouch found its way onto the counter. "Once that is done, fetch Mr. Resnik. I'll be needing his services for the other messages."

Late in the evening Mag summoned the merchants and many of the locals into her tavern. When all the tankards were filled with ale, the leader of Soubar addressed the crowd.

"I've struck a deal with the Zhentarim. The trade ban that took the Black Network's caravans on bypass has been lifted. From this day onward their traders will be coming to do business in Soubar once more," Mag's attention leveled on the merchants. "That also means that the Corm Orp market has opened for you as well as long as you follow the Zhentarim law while on their land. Moreso, in the coming days, Zhentarim camp will be erected in Soubar. Their forces will be stationed here for the remainder of the war against the Devils in Dragonspear. They vowed not to bother us, not to meddle in our business and the same courtesy will be extended to them," with a narrowed gaze Soubar's leader glared about. "They are not to be interfered with. Keep in mind that Black Network's presence should work in our favor as a counterbalance toward the Gatelings and other do-gooders that have recently been coming into our town."

She paused waiting for the crowd to digest the news before speaking again. "This is a change for the better, ye ken? There will be more work, more coin flowing into your pockets and more opportunities. Make use of it."
