Case File: Black Dragon



  • It seems there is a Cormyte calling themselves Black Dragon trying to stir up chaos.

    Considering Mikul is a known former purple dragon it is likely worth questioning him on this.

    All suspected Cormyrian spies should have been questioned and registered long ago, make it quick before this Black Dragon cause more trouble than mere posters. The success of bringing this traitor down, will curry much favour for those involved in the operation.

    As a point of fact, when I brought up that Mikul was a Cormyran soldier the Council saw fit to grant him access to the citadel Library. He hasn't exactly been secretive about his role either, as his purpose here is to cleanse the South Horns. If that doesn't count as 'registration' then I'm not entirely sure what your definition is.

    Aside from that, it would behoove us to at least have a better idea of who the Black Dragon may be and if they're in contact with Mikul. Nothing so crass as beating him and or dragging him to the Palace, as again he's been rather open to questions.

    -Councilor Grurec, son of Torunden



  • I did point out I was against granting him access and voted against it but got out voted.

    Still there's merit to questioning him.

    With the rise of Cormyrian propaganda, it is only right to question the man who openly flaunt his past. Questioning a man does not require any physical contact, as long as he is cooperative.

  • It is worth looking into this Squire as well.

    As far as I know there are no squires or knights of the crown of Arabel

    There are many knights and squires, however the King's Forest remains under Cormyrian control.

  • Long story short Hawthorn a Wildwalker using a title given to her by a nature spirit. If you want more details, have a chat with her.

  • It is the title, Squire of His Majesty that makes me suspicious

    Bryce



  • Guess the name of the spirit?

    Soppi



  • I'm not in the mood for guessing games .

    Don't be cryptic as it just makes you look suspicious

    Bryce



  • It's Majesty.

    Soppi



  • And you don't think a spirit calling itself Majesty is suspcious especially when Cormyreans seem to be plotting against the city?

    Bryce



  • Mikul has been questioned.

    He openly admits he is loyal to Comryr, But claims he is not the Black Dragon and has had no contact with them.

    He claims he is in Arabel because his father, A Lionar was murdered by men from a foreign company and he wishes to fufill his fathers goal of putting the spirits of South Horn to rest.

    He states if he is contacted by this Dragon he will let us know if their plots endanger people, But doesn't seem overly sincere.

    Mikul merits further observation due to his loyalties.

    Bryce



  • Majesty is very very old nature spirit Bryce.

    I wonder if the Cormyte Blue Bloods in Suzail know a Kingswood shrub is competing for Obaryskyrs Title.

  • Arabellans, Council Members, "Bastard King,
    You have chosen your fate. You have chosen to ignore the misdeeds of the past. You have chosen a side, allying yourself with dishonourable rebels, traitors to the Kingdom of Cormyr.
    Time does not wash away the sins you built your false Kingdom on. In what happens next, there will be no fence sitting, no hiding behind a veil of ignorance.

    • You sided with an enemy of Cormyr, the foreign warrior Gondegal.
    • You took up arms against your fellow countrymen, butchered them, and stole their belongings.
    • You committed treason against the King and country that kept you safe for over a 1000 years
    • The noble houses of Rowanmantle, Misrim, Vaylan, Grossman, Mossmere, Kessemer, Goldfeather, Calantar, Kraliqh, Indesm, Immerdusk and Summerstar have rebelled against their true King, and have forfeited any claim to their noble titles. To serve them is to serve a false King.
    • For failing to ensure justice for the thousands of dead Cormyrians, the Greywatch will be treated as enablers of rebellion. To wear the grey is to mark yourself a traitor.
    • For failing to register with the Kingdom of Cormyr as a school of the arcane, The Precepts will be treated as servants of the “Bastard King”, and judged accordingly.

    I find you all guilty of these crimes, and you shall feel my vengeance.

    You failed to make amends. You failed to take even the simplest of steps to show you are more than brigands, bandits and traitors to a false cause.

    So now I rise, The Ghost of Cormyr, the Black Dragon. And you shall feel my wrath.

    I do not see any mention of Eveningstar in this, Even though The Aster and Church of Lathander has seats on this council. Very suspicious

    I don't see any mention of the Greywatch either.

    Are YOU the Black Dragon, Bryce? Or are you just going to accuse every single person in Arabel until one of them admits they're the Black Dragon. The whole point of an anonymous terroristic persona is to incite paranoia amongst the populace.

    I'm really not sure how we find out who this person is. If you forced me to guess, I find the person hanging around in a Cormyran controlled forest named because it is literally Obarskyr property is the most likely suspect, but seeing as I've never met them I really don't have an actual opinion on the matter. I would probably suggest looking into this first, however.

  • The Greywatch are definately mentioned,

    For failing to ensure justice for the thousands of dead Cormyrians, the Greywatch will be treated as enablers of rebellion. To wear the grey is to mark yourself a traitor.

    Well Eveningstar is near the Kings Forest, and the Cormyreans still control Colinwood as far as I am aware.

    Given that the nation of Cormyr and some sixty percent of its populace prays Lathander daily, I would save there is a good chance this Black Dragon does not wish to enrage the entire faith by implicating the Bishopric of Eveningstar, a Lathanderite Stronghold. As has been stated quite a few times in our files, Arabels relationship with Eveningstar is quite important, as is our relationship with Tilverton.

    Why they did not extend the same courtesy to the faiths of Helm and Tempus I feel is quite obvious, both High Priests took part in the war at King Gondegals' side, and much later, our very own blessed Tymoran champion, High Priestess Arianne.

    Pure speculation of course.
