Security Crackdown in Lemish

Lemish – Security has been tightened in the province of Lemish.

In response to last week's assassination of Solamnic Military Governor Timotheus and his entire family, acting Governor Laird Tom Riyan has instituted several new security protocols. These new security procedures involve the cities three gates, and the identification of visitors.

According to sources within the City Council, the three gates of Lemish will now be closed at sunset and will not reopen until sunrise. Perhaps the most sweeping change enacted by Governor Riyan concerns a new system of identifying not only visitors to the city, but residents and law enforcement as well. Visitors to the city will be required to purchase a Visitor's Pass. This Pass will cost one crown per three day stay in Lemish and consists of a blue ribbon which must be displayed prominently at all times. Residents must display a red ribbon which will cost three crowns per month. Those tasked with enforcing the laws of Lemish, such as Solamnic Knights and the City Watch will be made to display yellow ribbons. Those not displaying proper identification are subject to arrest and interrogation.

Governor Riyan defended his new policies by saying, "My methods may seem harsh, but if we had had a method in place for documenting visitors to our city, then perhaps Governor Timotheus and his family might still be alive. If we'd have secured our gates at night then the person or persons who committed these atrocious acts might not have gained entrance to our city. I intend to enact these policies throughout the province. I do not apologize for wanting a more secure Lemish."

The news protocols go into effect immediately. Everyone in Lemish, visitor, resident, or peacekeeper are expected to report by end of day Kirinor to City Hall and procure the proper identifying ribbon, Anyone not displaying proper ID after this time will be arrested.
