Town criers announce that a new issue of the Herald is released and can be purchased. The issue would focus much on the celebrations having occurred in the city.

New releases are from now on also sent to Candlekeep directly and all old issues can be found and read there as well.



//OOC: Herald Issue Vol 2 Issue 2 can be read on the first page.

The release of The Herald appears to be late this month but town criers are shouting out the latest news and of the success of healthy plant growth overcoming the foulness the march of the undead armies left behind outside the city walls.

Speculations as to why the issue is late range all from the Director-in-Chief being very busy within Pathfinder Hall to there possibly being issues in the production line of the newspaper.

In the early morning hours of Kythorn 27, Endelyon (with the help of her diligent and wonderful assistant) would make her usual route to deliver a "special" edition of the Herald, which would be available in stacks on various stores and bars throughout the city by morning and midday. After parting ways with Alessia, Endelyon would leave one of the flyers in Pathfinder Hall, along with a bottle of wine, complete with a bow and a little card with some flowing script.
"Congratulations, Director"
