Front Page: Rainwall Fall into Enemy HandsEdit
Around the same time Beaver Lodge was attacked, the Godwin Army stormed into Rainwall and gained control with little resistance. But the townsfolk had little sympathy for Lord Barows, now knowing that he had secretly conspired with Armes to divide our beloved Falena. Some even said he deserved this defeat.
Back Page: Lyon Snaps at “Bandit Prince”Edit
“The Dawn Times” has learned that, upon capture of the “Bandit Prince,” the Prince’s bodyguard Lyon, -- known for her mild disposition – openly unleashed her fury on Roy, the one who had been impersonating His Highness. Lyon apparently urged him in no uncertain terms to repent for his actions.
Rumor has it that this “talk” with Lyon is what persuaded Roy to give up his bandit ways. Allegedly, Lyon was sent over the edge after Roy persisted in addressing her as “sweetie” and calling His Royal Highness a “coward.”
“The Dawn Times” attempted to reach both parties for interviews, but was rebuffed in both cases. “Please, don’t ask me about that. I’m so embarrassed,” Lyon said. Roy was less cordial simply snorting and walking away, muttering with sounded like, “Crazy-ass reporter!” under his breath.
Serials: Portraits of the Enemy: Salum BarowsEdit
This time, we examine the action of Salum Barows, the unscrupulous head of the Barows family. When Rainwall collapsed, Lord Barows was forced to surrender to the Godwins, his long standing enemies. The public, however, has shown no sympathy.
After all, it was Lord Barows who pushed for Princess Falzrahm to ascend to the throne despite her being only second in line to the title, igniting the Falzhram-Shahrewar conflict. And it was Lord Barows who pushed dam construction, which planted the seeds for Lordlake uprising.
Lord Barows even stole the Dawn Rune and allied with the New Armes Kingdom. Lord Barows, intentions were decent, as his goal was to maintain peace by preventing the rise of the hard-line Godwin faction. But he is a man who would sell Falena out to accomplish that goal, a true blight on our nation.
