Fastheld - The dark pox claimed the life of a young lute player named Otsune Shrub. She was among those locked inside the Lightholder Tavern during the past few days. Although treated with herbal remedies, the girl never recovered. Given that the pox seems to have spread throughout Fastheld, soldiers gave up on the quarantine of the tavern this morning. Proprietor Solas Creek is ill with the pox, but is expected to recover.
