A new image appears on the Waterdhavian announcement system.
The emergency news system roars to life catching everyone's attention. The last time this went off was after the Saint of Death attacked Baldurs Gate, has there been another attack? A well dressed Aarakockra appears in an image and begins to address the people.
"Good evening. Today we bring terrible news. We are receiving reports of mass Genocide in the country of Thay. It has appeared to be done by the hands of Waterdeeps own College Dean and Archmage, Michellan. He was last seen at the college where sources tell us he received an unknown package from the Thayan leadership. Whatever was in this package seemed to cause the Archmage to go on and commit what can only be described as a mass genocide. Here is the imagery we have been sent."
A blue Warforged is shown standing in the streets of Thaymount rippling with electricity. His arms spread, Arcane energy swirling around him. His voice, garbled as if the energy itself affected the images sound.
"Mystra! Grant me the power! Slaughter them all!"
The image shifts to show hundreds of flaming rocks flying into Thaymounts Palace, levelling the structure to dust. Images from various cities in Thay show corpses and shrivelled bodies scattered around the streets, their faces twisted in agony
"The images are some of the less gruesome to be sent to us, and we are receiving word now there is a Bounty being placed on Michellan. Dead or Alive, 50,000 platinum pieces. If you see this warforged, do not approach unless you are confident in your skills. He is a highly dangerous criminal and considered to be armed at all times."
