MISCB17: "Blackrat -

Third message this week, no answer again!

Be you ignoring me, or be caught in your own trap?

Drop a note for me or I fly the city, for once the

rat be trapped, his cousin be not far outside the cage.

- Weythran"


MISCB06: "Weythran -

Found me the most sharpie way o ridding a self of a

blade in the side - Watch Officer Morgan. Too much

work for him, does he do his *own* scout of breakers and

bladesmen, so a sniffer drops him a name or two, gets a

coin for the mark of it. Turn me a profit and grieve me the

competition, why not?


MISCB09: "Officer Morgan -

Cease these bribes immediately! There is more than

enough street garbage we can simply scrape off the

pavement that we do not need to *pay* for more! If

your snitches could ever turn up the serious ones, I

might consider it, but look at your recent list. Festil,

Blackrat, Hops - these are the worst you can find, and

none of them other than poor street filth.

-Watch Sergeant Harwin"
MISCB16: "Watch Sergeant Harwin -

I must protest that the technique of paying informants

has been in place for only a week, and I think it has

shown far more promise than expected. While the first

round netted us only a few small fish, the fools have begun to

compete to turn each other in. A good fraction of the gold we

pay out, we reap back again when we arrest the informers

themselves. Ceasing the project now would be, in my opinion,




MISCB08: "Charly-

Remember how I told you that the alchemist's was just a

front-shop? I'm sure of it now! I was just there this

evening and started to go in, when the owner shut the door

in my face! And there were people in the store, standing

about as bold as you please!

MISCB13: "P -

We have to stop meeting at the alchemist.

This is the third time that woman has come

by to press her nose against the glass. I don't

know whether she's ogling Grimmad or just wants a

love potion from old Jack, but it's giving me the

shivers. Can you do anything about it?

MISCB02: "N -

I have a bug in the ear of one of the Watch Officers.

I'll have him drop a line and give the woman a scare or two.

If she's up to anything, she'll likely make a break for it and

they can pick her up. Either way, she'll be trouble for us no longer.

  • P"

MISCB14: "Lucy Walker:
The Watch Officers have received a number of complaints

about your harassment of the alchemist Grimmad. Out of

consideration for your masters, you have not been placed

under arrest yet. Please keep in mind that any further

trouble may result in arrest and confiscation of property.
For A Safe City,

Watch Officer Morgan"

I instructed the Mechanist, Brother Artus, to leave you a new key. The key will open the Vault as well as the Secure Records Room in the Records Hall. --Sheriff Gorman Truart"

M04b02.str: "Attention all Watch Officers,
In a short time we have nearly cleared the city of the criminal element that has plagued her for so long. I thank each and every one of you for the effort and initiative that you have displayed. Now we must direct this same form of hard justice towards another disease of the city, the Pagans.

We cannot allow these subversives to poison the minds of our fair citizens.

Henceforth, the Pagan faith is outlawed and practitioners of Paganism shall be considered enemies of the city. Be it so ordered, Sheriff Gorman Truart"
M04b03.str: "Attention:
- The Mechanist, Brother Artus, has informed me that the new security measures will be fully operational tonight.

Lt. Hagen"
M04b05.str: "Journal Entry 459
So often I hear the whispers of the men, 'What is the Sheriff really planning? Why is he so intent on bringing down the Pagans? Maybe the Sheriff isn't the man I thought he was.' The members of City Watch are filled with doubt; it is my responsibility to see to it that they ignore their doubts.

Sheriff Gorman Truart is unlike any man I have ever worked for. He has ushered in a new age, and it is up to us to support him unquestioningly. If Sheriff Truart asked me to arrest my own family, I would without any hesitation.

Why can't Mosley see this? She always questions everything! Why can't she just follow Truart's orders? We are not supposed to think, we are supposed to follow."

M04b07.str: "Sheriff Truart,
I must insist that you pay closer attention to the activities of the Warden Affairs Division. I know how highly you regard their work, and I readily admit that they have shown very impressive results.

However, I must point out that their arrest records indicate they have been avoiding certain Wardens. Whenever evidence is presented against those Wardens, it mysteriously disappears from Evidence Storage even though the stationed guards assure me that no unauthorized evidence leaves the area.

Respectfully, Lt. Hagen"
M04b08.str: "Journal Entry 684

Mosley is becoming an inconvenience. Lately she has been questioning my orders, and her conduct regarding the Pagans borders on insubordination. She was always my best officer before; why the sudden change? I'm going to give her one more chance to redeem herself. If she fails me again I'll have to give the case to Hagen. He may not be as good an officer, but he is loyal and vicious, not the sort to have any moral dilemmas with this kind of assignment.

What really puzzles me is that she wants the case so badly. The last time I discussed it with her, I suggested she hand the case over to someone else. She assured me that she'd triple her efforts, rather than let go of the assignment."
M04b09.str: "Lt Hagen,
I appreciate your memo regarding the Warden Affairs Division. I have personally investigated the matter and have found no evidence to support your accusation. They have ongoing investigations on the remaining Wardens and have made steady progress. They simply don't have enough of a case yet to move against them. As for the missing evidence, my search has determined that they were simply clerical errors.

However, I have discovered that several thefts from the vault have recently occurred. These thefts are in no way linked to the Warden Affairs Division. I want you to find out who is responsible.

Start making inquiries into the other divisions but stay away from Warden Affairs. Also discuss this with no one, especially Lt. Mosley. Mosley's inability to handle the Pagans has caused me to question her resolve. I have considered handing over the assignment to you, but given Lt. Mosley's excellent past record; I want to give her one more chance.
Be it so ordered, Sheriff Gorman Truart"
M04b10.str: "Maintenance
The vault security can be disabled for minor repairs. Simply enter the proper code and the sentries will shut off.
The maintenance code is: 4026"
M04b11.str: "Lt. Mosley,
I put you in charge of handling the Pagans because you are my second in command. Until now, your record has been exemplary. I don't understand why your performance has faltered. If you do not want this case to be reassigned to Lt. Hagen, I suggest you double your efforts to rid the city of all Pagan influence.
Also it has been brought to my attention that numerous small thefts from the Evidence Vault have been occurring for some time now.
Fire the officer that guards the vault. The Sentries can handle the security by themselves. I want you to conduct an investigation immediately.
Be it so ordered, Sheriff Gorman Truart"
M04b12.str: "Journal Entry 2234

It's getting harder to protect my garden from harm. So many plants die. No matter how hard I try to protect them, they still fall victim to the elements. No matter what anyone tells me, I will not uproot them or cut them down. I don't know what we are doing here anymore. Half the people I give orders to are people I arrested before. Hopefully the war will be over soon and the Baron will return. I don't think I can take much more of Truart's 'New Age', as Hagen so often puts it."

M04b14.str: "Journal Entry 836

We are still unable to make a case against Madame Volari. Her brothel seems to be perfectly legitimate, but Lt. Mosley believes that there is more going on there and so do I. The likely possibility is that they are using pillow talk to extract information from their rather aristocratic clientele. I can't believe I am saying this in a journal, but I think that the Sheriff is somehow involved in this. I have seen Truart enter there on more than one occasion. But is he a client or is he somehow working with them? All I know is that I am not going to say a word about this to anyone, especially Lt. Hagen. Mosley is the only one any of us can trust."

M04b15.str: "Journal Entry 709 Work's been pretty slow these days. Between Mosley and Warden Affairs, every thief in the city is out of business. I can't believe we used to try to stop crime by arresting the thieves. By attacking the bookkeepers and fences, crooks have nowhere to turn to. Besides, who is more anxious about staying out of jail, a criminal or some whiny pencil pusher?"

Activity: Frequent adultery
Threat: Her husband is very jealous and easily outsmarted. If her husband discovers her infidelity she stands to lose her comfortable lifestyle, should Lord van Vernon throw her out into the streets of Dayport.

I still can't figure out who the hell is robbing the third floor evidence vault. I mean if it ain't us then who the hell is it? All I know is that it's attracting a lot of unnecessary attention. I've told the rest of the crew to take the long way to the third floor. Hagen is already suspicious of us as it is. Even though the Sheriff will keep him off our backs, I still don't want to get on Hagen's bad side. That idiot really thinks that Truart is some kind of hero. Ha! If he only knew what we know."

whatever he designs next, or you will find yourself begging for

alms in the street."

I write to you on behalf of my lord, who is much intrigued with your services to other nobility. I am given to understand that your favours are reserved for those who please the Mechanist Tower.

good order and know that it is a sign from the Builder that

thou dost thine own part.

Your sermon was so inspiring. I never thought of it that way,

you will come to the dinner we are having on Saturday.

Thy name was mentioned to our lord Karras as one who might be welcoming

to the future. Perhaps thou hast heard of the Mechanists, but thou

may be confusing us with our hoary forebears, the Hammers. Where they

spurned thou and thy kind, the Mechanists embrace those with a voice

in the city's future. Perhaps thou might attend a sermon at Angelwatch?

There be many wonders we would be happy to show thee in our workshops.

Friend Tickspring"
M06B08: "Karras --
I received your note. I think you worry too much. I shall be there

in good time for our meeting, assuming that your loyal disciples are

willing to let me all the way in to your meeting hall this time.

There is much work to be done between now and tomorrow at twelve, so

leave me in peace until then.
Gorman Truart, Sheriff"
M06B09: "Friends,
If thou wouldst make a mold, press thine item into the wax press. Such impression being made, use the putty knife to scrape away the top layer of wax. Use this method, friends, to make molds of most small articles -- keys, cogs, gears, springs, and the like.
To create a tool of hardened steel, give thy mold to Brother Mendelus, whose place it is to work the fires of the forge.
-- Coltus"
M06B10: "Friend Coltus,
Recent experiments have confirmed my fears -- mere water can indeed halt the Builder's Children! If a significant amount of moisture pools in the aft boiler, the result is complete paralysis! The weather has been agreeable of late, but if a thunderstorm were to strike....

Coltus, I task you with fixing this problem immediately. Water poured directly into the boiler may shut the Children down, but you must at least be competent enough to protect them from a simple rain shower!

-- Father Karras"
MISCB18: "Friends-

Know thou that our Lord Karras was most disappointed

by the attendance at his sermon two nights past. Though

thine own faces were well seen, it is not sufficient in the

Builder's eyes for thee to come alone. Know that all of

thee must not only attend in thine own person, but must

seek to bring as many of the city's elite as thou canst

turn the ear of. Master Karras desires this patronage, and

I know his disciples shalt not disappoint."
"'Bricky roads they trappers grass,

stoney walls they trappers wind,
