New Accommodations for Kender Immigrants

Palanthas – The kender immigrants to Palanthas have received new accommodations courtesy of the City Guard.

According to City Guard officials, the city jail is overcrowded from the apprehension of so many kender. City Guard officials met with Senators last week in a closed session to discuss the problem. Today Lord Constable Keene Di Qisath, with the blessing of the Lord Regent and the Senate, announced the creation of a "Tent City" on the outskirts of New City.

The Lord Constable told the Herald, "Overcrowding has become a serious problem in our jail, most of which is due to the recent influx of kender immigrants. Rather than take up valuable space in our jail, which could be put to better use housing violent criminals, we will set up a city of tents to hold the kender. I know this may cause some unease among the citizenry, but we feel it is the best we can do at the current time. We simply don't have the resources to hold dozens of kender indefinitely. This tent city will be guarded round the clock by specially trained dogs. These dogs have been trained specifically to herd the kender back into the tents when they venture too far out. It is the hope of the City Guard that this will prove a good solution to the problems posed by our light fingered guests."
