Horrible Murder

From the front page of the Pappenheim Zeitung.

Horrible Murder

Recent news from Traunsburg, the capital of Pommaine, is that a member of the Swartzgarde has been foully murdered by burglars attempting to rob Duke Otto's palace. Very little detail is available about the alleged crime, but sources in the Gendarmerie say they are looking for a youth between 4ft 6 and 5ft 6 tall.

The city of Traunsburg is also under a strict curfew between the hours of 10pm and 6am. Various ambassadors have objected to this imposition, which will impede the social life of the city.

Ducal sources have denied that the robbery and curfew have anything to do with Duke Otto's illness and claim he is responding well to treatment.

Wonder these various ambassadors understand as 'social life'....

Hot violin solos, half-dressed women, and midnight coaches dragracing - you know what foreigners are like :)
