Last evening was one of the mroe eventful we have seen in recent memory. A bar fight broke out several hours after sunset. The results were that one of the citizens was stabbed in the neck and killed. The perpitrator, Gerwald Fichte, was apprehended shortly thereafter hiding in an alleyway. His two compatriots escaped our questioning, but by all accounts they were not active participants in the disturbance or the slaying. Upon questioning it was discovered that he is a member of the notorious Bohn Knights, a pirate, highwayman and murderer wanted in several other territories within the Empire. Unfortunately, he appears to have been significantly more difficult to hold than to capture. By all accounts he simply walked out of the guard house sometime in the early hours of the morning. His cell was still locked and there appears to be no damage to the guard house at all. The other prisiners also claim to have seen or heard nothing. He is at large and we are preparing a hunting party to track him down.
In other news, two of our guards were found murdered near the market by merchants preparing to open their stalls for the day. A single arrow was found in one of their throats. The other had his throat cut. There is no motive or other information at this time. It is possible, the Bohn Knights were visiting vengeance upon the town for apprehending one of their own.

To His Grace, Bishop von Wied,
As requested I have reviewed the reports sent from Landgraf Kunst. The confessions and revelations of the survivor are indeed, troubling. As luck would have it, the very same Nymandus depicted in these reports arrived here in Trier with his companions in tow. In general, the companions I met, fit the description given in the reports. However, there was no giant covered in tattoos. And while none of them brandished their swords, I can assure you that I saw no indication of blades made of hellfire.
I spoke with Nymandus at length last evening. He is an affable sort, very keen on his own greatness and the spinning of tales. While he does share similarities with other vagabonds or minstriels, something tells me there is more to him then he lets on. If he is an infernal sorceror, he hides it well. I would suggest we arrange a meeting so that you might better suss out the truth behind the stories.
