Palanthas – Early Kirinor a recruitment center for the Knights of Solamnia was vandalized.

The vandalism was discovered when Knight of the Crown Gareth Hawkeye arrived to open the doors for the morning. Hawkeye described the scene for the Herald saying, "When I arrived this morning I noticed phrases such as, "Vinas Lied," "The Oath Is Hollow," and "Androctus Is the Way," had been painted on the outer edifice. All seven of the center's windows had been busted out with stones, but the most alarming thing was the headless straw effigy sitting at my desk. Its head was on my desk, along with a naked longsword. Red ichors covered the neck of the effigy and the severed head. A note carved into the desk read, "Better to lose one's head, than one's soul."

Hawkeye had no further comments on the nature of the vandalism or on what the phrases meant. City Guards responded to the scene as did members of Captain Abraham Silvercrown's taskforce. Hawkeye, acting on behalf of the Knights of Solamnia, asked that the Knighthood be allowed to conduct their own investigation into the occurrences over the past few weeks; a request the City Guard granted.

No witnesses have come forward at this, but representatives from the City Guard have confirmed it is connected to the ongoing "Androctus" case. Silvercrown could not be reached for comment.
