prescott westermount arrested for stolen treasures
The actor, whose last notable role was in the 57 AC cinema disaster Southward Suns, was taken to the Carsten District Precinct in Beoland for questioning, before being transferred to Fort Misery on the Demon Road to await trial. His insistence that he is being framed by his butler is currently being dismissed as a tired cliche.
DCI Memphis Dalton was the senior detective on the scene, and he clearly hadn’t forgiven me for our last encounter:
‘We asked ourselves one simple question: how could a man of such little talent afford such extravagance? Not by any salient means, that’s for sure. It wasn’t difficult to put a case together after that. But Westermount is just a link in a much larger chain. A chain we fully intend to break, provided you don’t get in the way again. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have an inconvenience of paperwork to avoid.’
Amongst the recovered treasures was the Cacophony Pail from ancient Meridian folklore (its cataclysmic prowess is yet to be tested, and you’d be forgiven for wondering whether it ought to be at all), and Miranda’s Salet & Cinch — though no evidence of Miranda herself. All treasures have been interred at an undisclosed location for validation and dispersal to their rightful heritage centres.
Westermount is scheduled to stand trial on the last night of Esper.
