Trinsic Falls in Bloody Battle!
A dark morning fell over all Britannia as Trinsic, City of Honor, fell after a long and deadly battle. Fair Trinsic had worn well under endless siege by Undead of all shapes, power, and temper, but in the end, she was no match to the vicious army.
Slaughtered corpses line Trinsic's once beautiful streets as the occasional dying scream slices through air thick with smoke. The dark army tends their weapons and waits patiently for command... and through it all walks their leader - a raven-haired woman in black.
Who is she? And what does she want of Britannia?
Visit the Britannia Town Cryer for more details.
