The College of War Wizards hereby announce a restoration of the Blueleaf Gate.
Once used discretely by members of the Royal Court and their confidants, the Blueleaf Gate witnessed broader use by adventurers and travelers between Suzail and the King's Forest over the past decade. Near to one year ago the Blueleaf Gate was disabled by order of Suzail's War Wizard's Tower to address a security risk to the Crown City. The Blueleaf gate has since been strengthened with abjuration and divination spells to prevent misuse and to follow the movement of suspected criminals who have passed through.
Thus on this day, the twenty fourth of Eleasias in the Year of the Black Blazon, the Blueleaf Gate is returned to service.
Nearly two years have passed since the Cormyrean town of Hilp was destroyed by the rampage of an ancient red dragon named Ixamarunmaughzeraph in Uktar of the Year of the Blazing Hand. Nestled between Suzail and Immersea on Calantar's Way, the town of Hilp was caught up in the fighting as the dragon and its army retreated from an engagement at Suzail. The powerful red dragon was defeated and driven from Cormyrean shores but the victory was bitter. Hilp was razed by the dragon and his forces and very few of the townsfolk survived.
In the months that followed Purple Dragons, adventurers, and clergy from faiths across the kingdom traveled to the ruin of Hilp to seek out survivors and bury the dead.
Eleint in the Year of the Black Blazon marks the unveiling of the Hilp Memorial to honor the people of this village and the Cormyrean purple dragons and adventurers who gave their lives when the realm made its stand against a great and terrible monster.
Lord Sthavar of Suzail plans to give a commemorative speech at the memorial site later this year.
Elsewhere in the Forest Kingdom, generous donations to Suzail's House of Healing have allowed the establishment of the Suzail Soup Kitchen. The temple of Ilmater has always given what food it could to the those in need. The Suzail Soup Kitchen will now allow the House of Healing to feed the hungry during all hours, day or night.
