4/20/2017 – For a third time the Royal Guard, under Arthur Forthwin’s command, clashed against the restless dead wandering the streets of Trinsic. The battle was brutal, and many gave their lives in the salvation of Trinsic. When victory was in sight, the Pallid Knight appeared in the Trinsic Meeting Hall to display his work – many innocent citizens of Trinsic gathered in the center of some bizarre ritual, though which the Pallid Knight, by violently sacrificing them, summoned in effect a horrid entity composed of their bound and tormented souls. The monstrosity wreaked devastating destruction before the guards were able to put it down for good while the Pallid Knight quietly slipped away. Victory had been achieved – but a heavy cloud hung above the city.
4/12/2017 – The guards gathered in the captured docks of Trinsic to prepare for the next assault. Commander Forthwin led the charge across the river into western Trinsic where the Royal Guards met a gruesome phalanx of undead, many of them former residents of the city. The guards pushed the undead westward, clearing them out completely all the way to the western wall. Before they could push into the northwestern quarter of Trinsic, however, the undead began to rally from the east, forcing the guards to double-back before the undead could effectively flank them. Finally, the guards pushed north to the Trinsic Barracks, where they encountered none other than the Pallid Knight himself. The knight challenged the guards by forcing them to annihilate one of the finest horses of Trinsic, Baldur the Mighty Steed – a coveted horse among many of Trinsic’s Paladins but now destroyed and returned as an undead minion of the Knights of Mondain. The guards slew the horse as the Pallid Knight made his exit. Though a victory, it was a victory marked with grief for the fallen.
4/6/2017 – Commander Forthwin met with the guards at Castle Blackthorn, where he discussed his plans to retake the docks quarter of Trinsic from the clutch of the dead. They traveled to Barrier Isle just off of Trinsic, and the Commander led the charge across the bridge to the walls of Trinsic. They met stiff resistance immediately upon knocking through the blockades, as swarms of undead descended upon them. Unrelenting, the guard pushed forward and faced off with several of the Knights’ most gruesome creations. The Knights themselves did not seem to make an appearance except for the Pallid Knight, who watched from afar until finally intervening himself, to reveal that the brave Sir Jeffrey, whom until recently had been fighting the undead alone in a berserk rage, had at last perished and remade as an undead minion of the Knight. The Pallid Knight loosed the undead Sir Jeffrey upon the guards forcing them to destroy him forever. As the body of Sir Jeffrey lay lifeless, finally free from the yoke of undeath, Commander Forthwin informed the guard that they were victorious, and that the docks were now under their control.
