Port--Lucine - Baie de Sable
« on: January 06, 2016, 01:11:42 AM »
Premire Soldat Zo Delaroux of the Company of the Fox was seen arrested in public in Port--Lucine this day by Lieutenants Jerome de La Salle and Remi Rousseau. She was quickly escorted to the Company encampment outside of Port--Lucine, along the Baie de Sable, without protest.

Shortly after, the Vicomte Marceaux could be seen leaving the Palais.

Later, rumors soon sprout of a Tribunal that was formed in the camp to address the charges against her. The charges seemed to have included Sedition, Dereliction of Duty, Gross Insubordination, and Disrespecting and Officer and the Company. The sounds of a flogging can be clearly be heard near the encampment, and word of Delaroux being stripped of rank and confined to the Company camp spread about as gossip to those that care to hear it.

A whirlwind of activity can be both heard and seen from along the avenue running through the fields along the Baie de Sable, in the Company of the Fox encampment. The soldiers of the Company busy themselves for preparations for their campaign with much order and discipline, and any passing by would hear that the Company are to depart in but a day for the southern borders of Dementlieu. Cavalry steeds are brushed down and saddled, spare muskets are cleaned then stowed for transport, cannons are hitched to their carriages and ammunition is carefully stored and packed. The dark blue, black, and gold of the Company flags stand tall in the fluttering wind as once again, the men and women of the Fox Company prepare to march to War.

A hunched figure can be scuttling around the camp after a meeting with Jerome le Salle, usually carrying a toolbox or a shovel. He works hard at cleaning the latrines, the horse areas, and doing general repairs to fences and boxes.

Over the course of several days he also works to dig a ten meter hole in the dirt away from the camp, using a bucket and a block and tackle as well as a ladder.

The hunched figure, who seems to be looking healthier by the day, scurries about with determination if lacking in skill and strength, beginning to lay duckboards down on the soggy, wet earth as the snows of winter set in.

Rumors trickle from the Fox Company encampment on the shore of the Baie de Sable, of First Lieutenant Jerome de La Salle departing the grounds on a temporary Leave of Absence. It is unknown for what reason this may be, but the Lieutenant was seen to be clearly holding some amount of anger in his expression as he strode down the avenue away from the Baie towards the city of Port-a-Lucine.

As Company of the Fox members filed in for this evenings muster, the usual sounds of musket and cannon fire were strangely absently. They were instead replaced with the dull, monotone droning of tribunal proceedings- A soldier being judged for their alleged crimes. Those there witnessed a decently long trial lasting some hours perhaps due in part to several outbursts from both the accused and the blue and black clad prosecution.

After some deliberation, those standing in judgement passed down their sentence- 40 lashes and a dishonorable discharge. The soldier in question, a woman going by the name of "Lilly" and known for her fox faced mask, was taken to the medical tent after collapsing from the corporal punishment.

A new civilian laborer has begun working at the encampment. Though he has the look of a brute, he is incredibly quiet and keeps his head down as he goes about his duties. Some may consider his reserved nature suspicious...

The stables are mucked out, the cows and horses are brought to the pond for water, and barricades are meticulously maintained. During his free time, the man practices pig-calling with the hogs in the nearby woods. Now and then, soldiers would be treated to roasted ham hocks with a honey glaze.

Soldiers and workers at the encampment of the Company of the Fox along the Baie de Sable bore witness to the sight of one of their own officers being assisted in the early hours. A blood-soaked uniform clung to Premier Lieutenant La Salle as Sous-Lieutenant Rousseau and a female soldier half-carried the Dementlieuse man into and through the camp, carefully bringing him to his tent.

Gossip at the camp speaks of a terrible thrust of a sword that took La Salle almost squarely through the chest, the wound perhaps mortal, if not for the quick and professional medical care offered by Premier Chirurgien Levasseur.

Lis Claret, a Soldat that lives and works in the encampment seems to be spending all her time elsewhere lately, returning only to perform her minimal duties and run off as soon as they are done rather than spend her time in camp or the city, as is her custom.

In the early hours of the morning, premier soldt Lis Claret was seen being escorted into the Company of the Fox Encampment, arms bound and appearing somewhat disheveled. Those present might speak of how the soldier was placed in stockades by Sous-Lieutenant Rousseau and Sergeant Lisseaux. The dark haired officer soon informed the Company sentries that the prisoner was to stand trial by military tribunal for a litany of charges against her including: disobeying a direct order, disrespect of an officer, assault with a deadly weapon and conduct unbecoming a member of the Company of the Fox.

Rumor has it the trial will commence within the following day...

[Bittersweet news emerges from the Maison de la Vue, home of Councilor D'Honaire, come the morning of February 14th, 772 BC. Edith Bertrand, while visiting the Maison at the Councilor's invitation, went into sudden and very early labor! A Lamordian physician attended her delivery for several hours. The disgraced and vindicated Zherisian governess gave birth to a daughter, Leone Justea Bertrand, who miraculously survived the early delivery. In her final hour, Edith was attended by her niece-by-marriage, Charlie Bertrand, before giving up the ghost.]

Sharp commands and assembled troops can be seen in the Company of the Fox encampment from the avenue leading past the Baie de Sable. Evidently, a muster is underway, with muttered word floating about of the Company testing an assortment of new firearms from the Helling and Sons company of Lamordia...

As night drifts into day, the songs of a flogging can be heard coming from the encampment as well, and coldly delivered words. A soldier has been flogged as the muster concludes.

Word soon spreads about the Fox Company encampment of the Tournament that Baron Ambrose Descartes is holding at his estate for users of the estoc and rapier. Premier Lieutenant Jerome de La Salle can be heard loudly announcing to the soldiers, particularly those of the more gentrified Company cavalry, that any man that volunteers and signs up for the tournament will be awarded an additional five thousands solars if they win, and all the glorie and honor that comes with such!

Lis Claret is seen working long days in the Company of the Fox encampment under the pleasant spring weather, with an ax in hand she cuts away at the rotten wood of the old barricades, and replaces them with new, sharpened poles.
Her movements are, perhaps, overly violent, and she is using more force than needed when cutting the old wood away.

Rumors abound throughout the Company of the Fox encampment that the highly controversial tribunal of Lis Claret took place today. An abundance of testimony was heard ending with the soldier being found guilty on several charges presented against her. In a surprising twist, the tribunal also gave recommendation for Sergeant Sieglinde Lisseaux to be demoted to the rank of private based on the testimony given during the trial.  Captain of the company, Vicomte Juste Marceaux, was quick to support the trio of judge's decision.

The former Sergeant is seen leaving the camp after a heated exchange with one of the Lieutenants. Noticably, she's not in uniform at the time of her depature, she remains to be seen within the city.

Those at the front gates of the Company's encampment today might have witnessed a red headed man exchanging heated words with several Company members. Though exact cause of the scuffle remains unclear it appears the man was quickly apprehended and escorted to the Gendarmerie. The Company's second lieutenant, Remi Rousseau, was seen later cheerily handing out bottles of spiced rum to the sentries involved.

The end of the week marks the return of the caliban soldier to active duty. She is seen removing her things from her personal quarters and setting up amongst the rest of the soldiery.

Not long after the former Sergeant claims her new tent, she and a Soldat on probation are seen playing soft music together and sing in grudging harmony before parting to carry out their individual duties.

In the Fox Company encampment, First Lieutenant Jerome de La Salle can be heard declaring loudly that retired or discharged veterans of the Company are being requested for a temporary recall to the colors.

Those passing by the encampment, or within it, may mutter over the details of this new flurry of activity. Flyers accompanying the Lieutenant's words declare that there is particular interest in those soldiers that were declared "Heroes of Mordent", during the campaign of 770.  Some may suspect that such initiatives portend a dangerous or important military assignment may soon be underway...

The Company of the Fox encampment along the Baie de Sable has been thrust into frenzied activity. There is no secret that a general call to order has been given, and the soldiery is at full attention and readiness. Of particular note, the cavalry seem to be exercising their mounts every day now. Clear though the state of preparedness may be, the exact movements of the Company are not public knowledge. The rumor on the soldiers lips though, is that it is related to the gossip that has taken the Publique of Port-a-Lucine on this same day: civil war.

Loudly issued orders go out from Lieutenant de La Salle, heard even from the road along the bay, that all soldiers of the Company are to actively assist in the recruitment of  new soldiers for the upcoming campaign.

The barricades outside the Fox Company encampment are literally covered in recruitment and propaganda posters... with more added as the days go on!

[Bathed in moonlight, a still, lifeless body of a woman was unceremoniously discarded on the side of the ruddy dirt road that cut through the landscape between the Vistani caravan and the luminescent glow of Port-a-Lucine. Blood saturated her dress that spilled around her feminine form, the cloth wrinkled and disheveled. Her hair was a matted mess that clung to her visage, nearly obscuring it, wrapping around the anomalously shaped head.  A grotesque concavity where the skull was viciously collapsed makes her barely recognizable, appearing more as a misshapen freak, a caliban, than a woman.   Dried tears, remnants of rivulets of lament, encrusted each cheek.

A savage, gaping tear wound adorned her neck as if rent by a barbarous beast: flesh, sinew, and muscle sundered from bone.  The ground around the woman was visibly disturbed, evidence that her current positioning was not the location where she was assailed.  A visible trail of blood droplets tracked back into the gates, within the looming walls of the City of Lights.

Ghastly howls permeated the serenity of the spreading darkness of that evening, a wolfs reverent baying to the rising of the moon that eerily silenced the pervasive buzzing of insects.]

Word spreads about the Fox Company encampment on the Baie de Sable, that Sieur Jerome de La Salle is searching for soldiers in the Company looking to volunteer for a special detachment of sharpshooters for an assignment. Only those of the highest proficentcy in musketry distance shooting or archery seem to be called for, and rumor floats about the avenue along the bay that loyal civilian citizens are also sought.
