    On the 31st of May, 308, House Playero is recorded to have plead guilty to conspiring to stage a coup d’etat alongside the Marienritter Order and Hengest Harhold. While the verdict remains irreproachable in the eyes of the Judiciary, it is unfortunately far from the truth. Since the day House Playero arrived to the Crown Isle, it has served this city and its Chancellorship loyally. Manipulated by the seditious and surreptitious strings of the Baron Hengest Harhold, who sought to take advantage of House Playero’s influence and rally a vote of no confidence, our kin was kept uninformed of the Baron’s and the Marienritters’ intention of violently seizing the state. After these individuals had foolishly alerted the March-Elector of Drachenwald, of all people, about this coup d’etat by way of written letter, it was only inevitable that House Playero fall to guilt by association despite it having no part in this most nefarious ordeal. Sabotaged and betrayed by their own Trial Maker, there was little that could be done to mend such a sour turn of events.

    In the name of justice and clearing the name of Playero, the following documents serve as written evidence of House Playero’s loyalty to the Chancellorship of Louis Delmotte. This previously classified information is presented not as an attempt to change a guilty verdict to innocent, but rather for two more distinct, critical reasons:

    One: To distinguish political fabrications from the truth.
    And two: To alert the populace of Regalia about trivial matters which were unanimously unmentioned during the trial for the sake of preserving national security.

    House Playero was initially responsible for uncovering The du Brierust Controversy. After Xabi and Isidoro Playero brought to light Milena du Brierust's connection to the Lich Xilthruum, the former Countess was cornered into confession. House Playero has been working to protect the State from the Lich's endeavors for months.

    House Playero has worked diligently to keep tabs on the treasonous affairs of underworld factions, more importantly including the growing Kathar guilds and Xilthruum's execrable coven of miscreants, The Solifuge. In doing so, House Playero strictly abided by the legal parameters established by the Chancellor at the time, and, as agents of the Holy Divine Inquisition, kept close communications with the Guard Charter Adjudicator regarding permissions and boundaries.

    NOTE: The purpose of revealing this information is not to raise alarms about William Arnyn, as that investigation was closed a long time ago. Rather, this information is intended to erase doubts about the intentions and loyalties of House Playero. House Playero has never once gone beyond its authority.
    House Playero has been slandered and bogged down by the malicious intentions of many, most notably from enemies like the Tordove Tribe, and the suspected heretic, disgraced Admiral Abelhard Latimer. The public deserves no less than to at least be able to gaze on some of the evidence.

    After House Playero received confirmation that Sanguine agents had infiltrated the Noble Peerage, former Chancellor Louis Delmotte personally appointed Xabi and Isidoro Playero to investigate the matter and report to him directly. Later, House Playero moreover discovered a plot by Xilthruum's coven, The Solifuge, to exact revenge on the city for the burning of the library. A powerful Kathar known as Lyra was identified by Xabi Playero as Xilthruum's right hand woman and leader of the Solifuge. The brothers Playero worked as the former Chancellor's personal informants regarding this ordeal for some time.

    The documents for Exhibit 5 are being presented for no other reason than to serve as proof of House Playero's repetitive efforts at lobbying for Guard Charter centralization and a stronger system of checks and balances. These notions often resulted in members of House Playero, namely Isidoro Playero, being targeted by unlawful arrests and and political fabrications which were brought up to the Chancellor. Victims of constant harassment, arrests, and with later rejections from both former Chancellor Delmotte and the City Council, House Playero had no choice but to attempt to rally a vote of no confidence through legal means. There never was and never will be any evidence of House Playero attempting to seize the state through violent means, and this entire publication serves as ample evidence of this fealty.

    For fear of losing his office to a legal vote of no confidence, Louis Delmotte sought to have House Playero eradicated. Members of House Playero were wrongfully kept imprisoned for days, tortured, abused, squeezed for confessions which did not exist, and threatened with death. Louis Delmotte had every intention to slaughter House Playero, and had Isidoro Playero not been able to get out a letter to the Regalian Judiciary requesting that limits be placed on Louis's ability to execute political enemies, House Playero would not be alive today.

    [CRUCIAL PUBLIC INFORMATION]

    All of the information above can be tedious to process, given the sheer amount of it, but here is what the public needs to know.
    1. Vampires, and more importantly, agents of the Lich Lord Xilthruum, have infiltrated Regalia's noble peerage. Allegedly, there are vampiric bloodlines which allow the host to remain undetected.
    2. There is an impending offensive from The Solifuge and its Undercity allies against the State.
    3. Abelhard Latimer is a corrupt heretic and is not to be trusted. He is also responsible for the illegal framing and political demise of ex Grand Arcanist, Alexis Morgan. For whatever reason, his debauchery has led him to pursue the installation of supposed "Leyline Constructs" which may aid him in whatever draconic affairs he is plotting.
    4. House Playero played a key role in several pivotal engagements over the last few months, such as revealing the Sanguine breach in the peerage.
    5. The Kathar guilds of the undercity are growing stronger and are working together with vampiric covens. The end of the Clickers is unfortunately not the end of the threats that this city faces.

    The Slumberwood looked over the notice only briefly barely glazing its contents before shaking his head with a light laugh "Iad, I can already hear the denunciations and responses being written. Spirit help the city's ink supply."

    ((OOC Note: You have Exhibit 6 twice on there.))

    Crassius Carwell rested within his home he'd receive a copy of the notice, in which he'd read it slowly before sighing. "Perhaps, there is truth within his words. However, I would wish to speak with the High Exarch for his thoughts upon this. For now, there is much more that needs to be done besides things of the past. What their trial held was with such. I respect those who wish to stand up against corruption and moves against the sins of the world. Though, at the end of the day, you can only get so far. For now, I pray that they can figure things out from here on out." He'd put the notice down before getting himself up to go pray at the Salvation Church.

    "..And then you started attacking people on the streets in a gang. Shows how credible you are." commented a particular Bloodcast Knight as he read over the files.

    And here I thought we were done with this. Politics never fail to amuse,” Aelianna remarked as she finished her reading, releasing an amused huff.

    As the Url's hooves trot and thud to the collection of papers and notices, he bides his time to read each and every bit on his walk to the meeting place of the Throng.. However, only one spot keeps his attention specifically as his brows knit in confusion with the sharp horns on his head following a tilt. With a loud guffaw and gathering of others to read it out but with his own addition, his booming voice carries from their ears and into the streets in which others would most certainly hear from once originated from a forested area. From air to ear, his voice reverberated to others and his name, alongside it.

    "Look, Url of the Goretaan! Latimer is to blame for all of the political downfall of Morgan, her desire to cure the Url was right all along! Eigoth, look what the old Ailo-- Avanthar ruined!"

    The rising of a waterskin filled with an ale that can only be compared to a too alcoholic bread-soda met his lips before being wiped away with one more bellowing laugh. As his left hand opens to address his kin, he says
    "The Playeros have lost the ability to show their own innocence through law, and what better way than to appear the lesser evil through the pointing of fingers and wagging of tongues to the most obvious choices of blame? Do not fall for such simple tricks."

    "I am going to come up there and kill you myself, you miserable rat! I will smear your names or your spines across the road; whichever are more flimsy by the time others strike you blue and black from this foolish 'snitching!'" Worse and worse the winds of wrath bellowed from the deep tunnels of the sewers. Some even say that frost and flecks of snow could be seen kicked up from the least savory places of the city. It was not in hues of sky blue and pure white, however, but in a bloody red and venomous black.

    "Send word to the masses," the Lich Lord called to any and all couriers available, "the payment will come in a bag as heavy as their headstones!" Almost an hour of thrown books and smashing furniture thunked through the rebuilding halls of the Solifugae's cistern, but when all went quiet, all that could be heard was the mad scribbling of numbers swelling in size.

    The Forgemaster is heard cackling at the Playero’s conspiracy theory, his coworkers look at him confused as the old orc continues to laugh for a couple of more minutes before it died down. That was a good laugh, the orc thoroughly enjoyed that, until he realized that the Playero was dead serious, at which he tossed his copy into the forge fire, stoking the flames with his metal poking stick. “You’re telling me that the child-murderer, treasonous arson is accusing members of the peerage of crimes that he has no Confirmation of these letters being true. If you ask me, the fact that he was dealing in the sewers at all makes all of these letters entirely meaningless and should be treated as such. You’re a deranged criminal Playero, get that through your head and kindly fuck off.” The orc ranted to no one in particular, his coworkers had gone back to their business though, he was growing senile, they thought.

    "..So, i'm being accused of worshipping dragons and the void at the same time, huh. And.. Constructing Leyline Constructs. Oh, right. The Leyline constructs. The constructs meant to destroy the void. The constructs created specifically to destroy infection. Infection purging constructs" the Avanthar monologued. He'd shrug, moseying elsewhere in the city.

    "I really thought people would leave me alone for a bit."​

    Novellia Fristadvlom ate dinner in peace, all until a courier ran in with papers, handing them over for her to read. She read them over in a hurry, unsure what they were about, but quickly found herself not so much astounded. Instead, she placed the papers down on the table, not minding the soaked ink from the iced tea. "Latimer technically has the right to strike any of them if he sees them." She sipped her tea. "This'll be something."

    The hunter sharpens his blade in the dungeons under the mercenary keep whilst thinking about the post that the Playero brothers made, just wondering to himself when will a bounty of them come up so he could properly hunt them down.

    After a long day, Sae'viir dropped herself off back home. She eagerly slipped into the baths and reached over for the stack of papers hanging near the edge. Sifting through them with the gentle curl of a clawed digit, her vermillion leer shifted to and fro along the documents- up until her name popped up.

    At first, the Sanguine narrowed her eyes. She then continued to read with various expressions flashing across her features.

    "Close relationship? What the flying fuck are they insinuating?"

    Anika Kreiburg looked over the mound of papers, not giving it a glance as she had things to do. Though Ervina Kreiburg wandered over with her cane, an old eye dissecting the papers, “Phahaha! Good entertainment here, ay Anika?” both Kreiburgs stayed for a small bit before going to leave the papers to dust or whoever found them next.

    Margherita dei Moreno looked at the papers before remembering she can barely read.

    Sigvard's brow furrowed, he strained his eyes to read the files and after all was skimmed over he looked up to his daughter. "I watched these men spread their corruption across the city, I watched them serve your brother without question or morality and I watched them make decisions for themselves. Never believe someone's face value, to match their souls and crimes; their faces would have to be hammered pretty badly my dear." He sipped at his tea, sighing and petting a goat laying down by his seat. "Personally, these men requested execution be their punishment; the Spirit is known to oblige only the faithful and I see no heads rolling."
