The afternoon Local Report of the day reads as follows:

 

STORMWIND 2ND FLEET DEPLOYED WEST! ALLIANCE ROUTES REINFORCED!

Possible Zandalari Threat! Piracy Energetically Condemned by Grand Admiral!

 

===========================================================================

After a session of the House of Nobles this afternoon, Grand Admiral Jes-Tereth has been seen accompanied by naval officers heading to the War Room of the Stormwind Keep, joined by King Genn Greymane and His Majesty, King Anduin Wrynn shortly afterwards. The meeting lasted for an hour or so. As she left, the Grand Admiral informed that the 2nd Fleet of the Stormwind Navy is to be deployed on short notice towards the western routes, specifically the maritime perimeter directly adjacent to the continent of Pandaria.

 

It was revealed by a sitting noble (whom the Grand Admiral preferred to not name) that the Alliance routes in that region, mainly responsible for trade with the goblin Steamwheedle Cartel and pandarian communities as well as Alliance settlements in Kalimdor, may possibly be under threat of Zandalari naval pushes, as well as piracy acts from a group specified as the Saltsails. The Grand Admiral stated the following:

 

"Piracy is a curse, a sickness of the ocean that must be cured with haste and determination. These people are vile, taking upon hard working seamen using violence and fear to feed off the industry of honest men. We must crush this vermin, and remove this plague from our waters. As for the Zandalari, they have proved how equally vile they are with their actions in Pandaria and their hand in the ressurection of the Thunder King. They're as much responsible for the damage caused to the humble pandaren people as Garrosh Hellscream's antics in that land. The trading community of the Alliance can rest assured that our fleets will do the utsmost to secure our routes and get rid of these murderous curs. The Navy offers its deepest considerations to the young lady who provided us with this information -- else we wouldn't know that our vital veins of trade would be under threat."                                                                                                                                                                _ Grand Admiral Jes-Tereth

 

Further news also include an earlier intervention in the settlement known as Freeport by the Westfall Trading Company under Lord Jean-Philippe de Montarville, Marquis of Montarville. According to recent news, the Marquis' company had effectively rid the young port town of piracy, establishing what seems to be a branch of the company to administrate the town's activities. Regrettably, the Zandalari invasion has brought an end to the Marquis' investiment in the island. As of now, His Lordship is yet to make a statement regarding such events. 

 

The trading community has expressed their worry with such news, calling for action. The Grand Admiral's reassurement has certainly quelled even the most serious complaints that poked at the threshold of sedition. A small group of aristocracts dubbed the "anti-spending faction" criticized the actions of the Grand Admiral, stating that while they lament the state of affairs in the western routes, the kingdom is in no condition of supporting such moves without risking yet another hit to its healing post-war economy.

 

Stormwind Keep gossip tells of a planned intervention in the small port town though it was not confirmed nor denied by officials in the Keep and in the Admiralty. His Majesty and his closest advisors preferred to not comment on the matter, only reassuring that everything is under control.

 

More news as the case develops.

For the Alliance, brothers and sisters!

In light of today's protest in front of the Stormwind Keep regarding the deployment of the 2nd Fleet westwards, the Stormwind Royal Guard

maintains the Keep on lockdown with checkpoints. No one goes in or out without necessity or purpose.

 

His Majesty didn't comment, nor did Grand Admiral Jes-Tereth, though the Office of the Grand Admiral has released a note that their conviction to guarantee the safety and security of the Alliance's western routes remains resolute and that they pity the weak minded for being swayed so easily by seditious elements.

 

The SI:7 has gone out in the streets and is working dutifully to discover whatever they can about who these seditionaries might be under direct orders of Master Mathias Shaw. It is said that Old Town is being turned upside down by agents and operatives, shady invididuals being hauled in towards the SI:7 command center for questioning. The City Guard has doubled their watch as to avoid any cases of damage to private and public assets or any other disturbance of order.

 

Gossip from within the Keep also seems to point that Master Shaw has ordered that Count Henry Valorcrest, a known opposition to the kingdom's spending habits, is sought for questioning. The Count's closest associates, heavy supporters of Lord Valorcrest's ideals of preserving the kingdom's wealth whose names were not written (though some know who they are), are also ordered to appear before the SI:7 to provide their testimony alongside Lord Valorcrest.

 

The 2nd Fleet continues their final preparations to depart from Stormwind City.

The Alliance civilians and military/paramilitary forces have been completely evacuated from Freeport under orders of 

Lord Jean-Philippe de Montarville as of today by magical means of movement.

 

After a few knocks and turbulences in Stormwind and in Freeport, it was judged best by Lord de Montarville to call for such action. In the course of the evacuation, Sir Daniel Amanthos, ranking Commander of the Stormwind Navy, has revealed himself on a covert, solo mission to find the Marquis whom was thought to be trapped in the island by the invaders and pirates. Sir Amanthos' mission suffered a previous failure when an attempt at infiltration came to be compromised in the kaldorei ruins to the east of Freeport. 

 

Using of his worgen form and skills, the Commander has been able to reach the holdout through the hills, where he found the evacuation underway. With the Marquis safe and Alliance personnel underway home, Amanthos has also withdrawn from the island.

 

The Laurentius has dropped anchor in the Stormwind Harbor this afternoon. The crew has been given much deserved shore leave while Sir Amanthos submitted his report to the Alliance Naval Command for review. Not much has been revealed, but a ragtag band of pirates have been confirmed to be in the island fighting the Zandalari invaders, as informed by Captain Eleanore Bradley who fights valiantly to defend her home in the island. When questioned about Miss Eleanore's relations with these pirates, Sir Amanthos stated that she is most likely using them as a means to an end and that no alliance or business deal seemed to be happening between them.

 

Lord de Montarville did send word to the Admiralty of the Stomwind Navy commending Sir Amanthos and his crew for their service and determination towards the safety of not only His Lordship, but the Alliance folks who would suposedly be in danger on that island.
