Official Declaration: Badril’s Rest Quarantine Status
As of the drafting of this document the quarantine status around the area of Badril’s Rest is hereby downgraded under the following cautions:
Citizens wishing to travel into the area are under strong advisory that several members of the adventuring community there have contracted symptoms of a disease not responding to the common magical cure. However, at this time we have no evidence of transmission of the infection from citizen to citizen. No citizen has come forward to report symptoms of this illness without direct exposure to the infected bugs, including individuals interacting with the infected adventurers over a several day period. Any individual with evidence to contradict this evidence is to report IMMEDIATELY to the Order of Light for examination.
Infected individuals are encouraged to remain in Badril’s Rest until their symptoms have resolved unless otherwise engaged in business expressly related to the greater safety and security of the Kingdom that must be concluded in a timely matter.
One symptom of this disease is sudden bouts of paranoia. Adventurers prone to acts of violence while in this mental state are NOT to leave the quarantine area without escort of individuals easily capable of incapacitating said adventurers. Paranoid individuals will be held criminally accountable for their actions against any citizens they place in harms way.
Infected citizens should be aware that progress is being reported on a potential cure for your symptoms. House Carr will reserve no resource in producing and distributing this cure as soon as a recipe has proven both safe and effective.
Thus is my will
In service to His Majesty
Sir Lord Antonin Carr
“How does one man assert his power over another, Winston?”
Winston thought. ‘By making him suffer,’ he said.
“Exactly. By making him suffer. Obedience is not enough.”
