Merchants Guild Official Missing
by Trampas Whiteman, Staff Writer
Palanthas - The Palanthas Merchants Guild has announced today that councilman Daltathon du Caerith has been missing for at least a week. According to the Palanthas guard, the last he was seen was at a guild meeting involving the Teyr Trading Company two weeks ago.
A letter was delivered the day of last week's meeting saying that du Caerith was feeling ill and to have the vote without him. No communication has been heard from du Caerith since.
"I find the timing to be a little too coincidental," city official Malith Draegor said. "The draconians come into town to set up trade, and when someone is vocal against them, he disappears? That's just a little too much coincidence for my tastes."
"We, of course, mourn his loss," Teyr Trading Company representative Krith said. "We have been fully cooperative with the authorities on this issue. We hope that they will find the guilty party, and base any decisions upon the evidence of the crime."
Officials are remaining tight-lipped on du Caerith's disappearance.
