The morning Local Report of the day reads as follows:

 

KINGDOM OF STORMWIND FACES POST WAR CRISIS!

Sectors of the Economy and Military suffer with the weights of the War costs!

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The defeat of the Burning Legion has brought great joy for the citizens of the Alliance, but the Kingdom of Stormwind now faces the heavy weight put upon everyone's backs due to the costs of the War against the Legion. Many losses have incurred in families now fatherless and motherless, which leads fo a raise in the number of orphans in the Cathedral District's orphanage, homeless citizens and cases of famine on the lower sectors of society -- mainly on those families who depended on a soldier's salary to eat. The High Command of the Army and the Alliance Naval Command are still reeling from the costs of war, with numbers dwindled and budget cuts. 

 

Earlier today, the military academy has dismissed an entire class of officer cadets, leading to considerable unrest among the families of those young to-be officers who are now unemployed and with their future uncertain. Rumors circulate in the capital that the Stormwind City Guard is also going to be affected by a cut in the budget, which leads many to speculate that a number of guards may find themselves unemployed in the coming days. 

 

The Stormwind City Harbor, under heavy military presence since the Legion assault, is now slowly being occupied by the Stormwind Marines. A rumor circulating in the harbor speculated that the harbor's guard may be the first on the list to be fired as their posts are slowly replaced by Marines that now lack vessels to occupy given the Navy's damaged fleet. The Harbor Authority's former Chief Officer, Vice Admiral Thomas Perch, has resigned his post after the Legion attack right before his retirement. The post has been left unfilled ever since and the Stormwind Harbor Authority was exercised by civil servants appointed by the Crown, but there are rumors that a new officer is meant to occupy the role again soon.

 

On the regional level, the Province of Redridge has been recently saved from the clutches of yet another Dark Horde army by corageous champions in an effort organized by the newest vassal of the realm, Baroness Cody Feld. May the Light bless her and her efforts, as well as all those supporting her. Elwynn Forest and Redridge are considered to be stable, whereas the southern reaches are still suffering. The Westfall Brigade keeps close watch to their homeland but despite the Brigade's valorous efforts, strife still runs outside the vicinity of Sentinel Hill coupled with the arrival of a number of unemployed and homeless citizens. The Province of Duskwood remains largely untamed, its forests still dangerous to any unsuspecting trespassers. Deputy Mayor Role Dreuger has assured that the Night Watch (or what's left of it) is working tirelessly to keep order in the province, but there's only so much the militia can do.

 

More news as the case develops.

For the Alliance, brothers and sisters!

As a response to the many parentless children following the war, Duchess Navier Forsell has put forth efforts to build additional orphanages in Westfall. Additionally, she has created the opportunity for work and shelter within her demesne for those impacted by it, primarily within the many farms on her property that require hands and laborers. Women in particular are granted additional assistance, especially those who may be pregnant or caring for young children without a father. She has also sent some of her more apt magical engineers to Stormwind to assist with the repair and fortification of ships.

In response to the coming wave of unemployed guards and soldiers, Dawgar's Bulwark has begun hanging recruitment posters, stating that they are looking for would-be sellswords. At first, the posters would be spread through Redridge, but Elwynn and Westfall follow shortly.

The Count of Shalewind, Vladimir von Karstein has made strides in response to these dismissals to offer employment for the people that are in danger of going without a pay.

 

To those who would prefer the profession of guarding the realm with their lives, a mercenary group contracted to be exclusively hired by Stormwind and its allies has been formed under the name 'Redwind Division'. The mercenary group was registered under a company by the name 'Redwind Security Solutions' with Count von Karstein himself being the owner. As opposed to usual 'swords-for-hire' groups, the men-at-arms of the Redwind Division are paid a salary by the company itself and given a bonus on top of it for every assignment they take on.

 

People who would return to their former lives in the civilian sector, or what is left of it, the Count also offered employment within two of his other major ventures; the Stonemason's Guild of Shalewind County and the Free Trader's Guild. Honest jobs await those that are willing, with guaranteed training courses, career development opportunities and competitive salaries to go with it all.

 

These news and developments came off the back of a recent meeting within the House of Nobles, and further support rumors that the Count von Karstein has been considering leaving the employ of the Stormwind Military as their Knight-Captain. By all intents and purposes, it seems that this injection of money into the economy and the lives of the people from his own coffers is not just a gesture to further the safety and security of people's lives, but to also expand his own businesses by creating more jobs and secure a position of a Mercenary-Lord in the region.
