The walled in city of Isiastride recently gained fame for being the center of the Southern Coalition last year, which most people know as the very thing that saved everyone’s lives, and then later gained more fame when it was revealed that Isias, the terrorist (and former Crusader, I might add) that attempted to blow up the Bank of Jarlsjalfi also hailed from there. Naturally, Isiastride was quick to disassociate itself from the little terror, but suspiciously not allowing any further investigation into the cause.
Which makes it no surprise that the Crusaders of the Council decided the best possible course of events was to commit happy bloody murder on the denizens of the city. More than one third of the civilians were found stone cold, and stone dead in their houses, with the food still out and cooling. Those still alive were either completely overcome with grief, and could not give any information away, or seemed so stunned, they had actively repressed the memories.
Even more delicious is the scandal that instigated with the infiltration of Isiastride. King Samuel of Exbaltaira, now General of the Crusaders (and sometimes working Commander) decided that he was a better ruler than King Matarian of Famardy, and decided to use his Council-given abilities to wrest control away from Matarian. This, is corruption in its most highest form.
We have given a King of a country that was only barely let back in complete rights to overthrow any nation whenever he feels like it. He could, quite literally, walk into Kasinthia, and decide he didn’t like how things were run, wave a little blue badge around, and BAM, all hail the elvish King Halldhor. I mean King Samuel.
Naturally, the whole situation was resolved privately, with King Matarian merely requesting that his highest taxpaying city’s debts now be covered by Exbaltaira, along with the rest of their massive, well deserved, debt that they accumulated due to trying to viciously murder all of us in our sleep.
King Samuel of Exbaltaira is not fit to be General of the Crusaders, and he’s certainly not fit to rule any country as far as we can tell. Sure, the Crusaders are a band of roving rule breaking psychopaths, but at least during the war we put that strange disregard for anyone but themselves to good use! Let’s go back to that, because frankly, King Exbaltaira here just doesn’t seem to understand how to run a group of mercenaries, let alone a country.
