Report on Knight Errantry Activities in the Duchy of Toussaint #31/g/22/ul/1271
The day of this writing saw the end of criminal enforcement activities directed against one Antoine Straggen, alias Starling. The above-mentioned criminal was wanted for a broad range of murders and other unlawful deeds – including the massacre at the Silver Salamander Inn – which he committed in co-malfeasance with his outlaw organization (henceforth: "hanse"). This hanse had for some time occupied the ruins of Arthach Palace. Using said real estate as their base of operations, they conducted numerous plunderous raids on merchants, traders and other such mercantile expeditions, extending in fact to any individuals displaying signs of carrying material goods of any worth on their persons.
The proceedings directed against said Antoine Straggen, wanted by writ of law in Metinna, Gheso and Nazair, were brought to a close by the witcher known as Geralt, who, acting on behalf of Her Illustrious Grace, conducted a summary field execution of the criminal and all his subordinates.
The standard pay for the completion of such a task was lowered by 40% to take into account the tax on unsyndicated butchers and immediate payment in species.
