The Hard Times is Jarlsburg's premier source of news (not necessarily truth) and routinely outsells it's competitor, The Cryer.
Quagmire has been the site of recent vigilante attacks recently, for the third time in as many weeks, a group known as the Shield of Valor has claimed responsibility for "shutting down" criminal operations that are purported to be linked to the Rickenbacher Cartel, which is widely suspected to "run" Yeti, the northern quarter of the city.
Thus far, a brothel (who's "workers" were being held against their will), a spice house (specializing in Spider and Lemming), and as of last night, a warehouse that seemed to be serve as a weapons cache for the Cartel, have all been targets. While no one was hurt, all members linked to the Rickenbacher's operations were found naked and chained together outside the nearest Watch House.
A letter, sent to this fine beacon of truth, was sent from the Shield of Valor and they "vow to clean up the streets of Quagmire, one criminal operation at a time!"
Neither Yuma nor Yolanda Rickenbacher could be reached for a comment.
More as the story develops.
