Pop. 134, Spring of 323 (Fortress Year 72)
Tragedy struck throughout the fortress when 2 well-liked citizens, Mayor Onol Lanterngaze and Ingiz Neutraloiled, passed away from old age. With the deaths so soon after the loss of Dewboy II Lanterngaze to troglodytes, Bembul Earthennourishes went insane and was promptly slain by nearby soldiers. The majority of the fortress became quite upset at these developments, forcing the nobility to halt all major projects. Dragon tamer Meng Roughwhips was elected as interim mayor during this troubled time. Time will tell if he can help King Urist and Duke Phyllite calm the masses before riots break out.
