Tarsis – The Office of the Conservators Guild of Tarsis was torched early Linaras by persons unknown.

The incident was reported to Tarsian Guard station 16 After Deepwatch falling, 15 by two passersby who witnessed the building erupt in flame. Leopold and Belenda Aaskaya of Lower City told authorities, "We were just out for an early morning walk when all the suddenly that building just exploded in a ball of fire. We saw two people running from the scene but because it was still dark out, we did not get a good look at them."

Adama Winterwren, Druid of Chislev and Spokesperson for the Conservators Guild told the Herald, "Recently the Conservators Guild has come into conflict with a fundamentalist sect opposed to our efforts to maintain the magically shaped forest. I believe this attack on our office may have been perpetrated by this sect."

"Over the past seven months, the Conservators Guild has worked tirelessly to retard the reversion of the forest to its unaltered state. Our gains have been modest; but for the most part we have been successful at maintaining the forest of Beryl as it currently exists. Now this sect threatens to undo our hard work. We have tried to meet with the leaders of the sect to explain our position and to get a bead on theirs, but so far our attempts at negotiation have fallen on deaf ears."

According to sources close to the Lady of Tarsis, she has pledged the full resources of the Tarsian Guard and announced a bounty of 50 steel pieces on sect members.
