The Corwell Town Crier

Ceri Bevan, Corwell Town Crier
This man has a powerful barrel chest and is usually seen leaning on the wooden rail before him, looking out over the town square. From time to time he is approached by a runner who hands him a sheef of parchment, from which he bellows the town's news and the Queen's laws.

Corwell has recently been ablaze with rumours about the burgling of a merchant ship, the Silvercrest, that had been moored up at the Corwell docks for only one night when, as rumour has it, the vessel's captain had his cabin broken into and his sea-chest plundered. Tragically, his beloved ancient parrot 'Clement' was also brutally murdered.

Ceri Bevan, the town crier, bellowed out this missive in the days following:

THIEVES AN' BRIGANDS 'AVE BEEN ACTIVE IN THAE DOCKS! ALL GOOD CITIZENS AN' TRUE ARE TAE REPORT TO THAE GUARDS ANY SIGHTIN'S OF A FIGURE WHO DRESSES ALL IN BLACK AN' LIKES TAE TAKE NIGHT-TIME SWIMS IN THAE HARBOUR! THAE PUNISHMENT FER THEFT AN' BURGLARY FRO' A SHIP BE DEATH! THAE PUNISHMENT FER THOSE WHO HARBOUR THIEVES BE THE LOSS O' THAE HAND, EYE, OR EQUIVALENT NUMBER O' TEETH! HERE YE, HERE YE, PAY HEED AN' BE VIGILANT, OR ELSE!

Ceri Bevan, the town crier, bellows out this missive from his usual post by the market square on a windy evening:

For some days now on a quarter-daily basis, a very disgruntled-looking Ceri Bevan has been bellowing out the following unusual message:

THAE KOART SILK MERCHANT BE LOOKIN FER BRAVE SOULS TAE COLLECT THAE SPIDER SILK GLANDS O' GIANT SPIDERS UP IN THAE MOUNTAINS AN BRING EM TA HIM FER GOOD COIN.

THIS MESSAGE SPONSORED BY THAE MOONSHAES TRADE LEAGUE ON BEHALF O' KOART SILKS.

*at this point, master Bevan can always be seen to pause and look down with disgust at the parchment from which he reads, before continuing:*

'KOART SILKS! TRUE MOONSHAES SILKS, FER TRUE MOONSHAES FFOLK!'
