A Memorandum Regarding the Subject of Barona:

The poisoning of the Ecosystem at the end of the last Great War continues to claim lives through the claw and fang of mutated wildlife.

Our best minds continue their research into finding a way to reverse these mutations and return the flora and fauna to its prior idyllic state, but after nearly a millennium, there isn’t much hope of a solution within the community.

Recent estimates place the final obliteration of the population of Barona within the next century, give or take a few decades depending on the effectiveness of the Hunter’s Guild.

Upon confirmation of the death of the last human remnants, the actions taken to sabotage work on the mutation remedies will be halted. We will then finally be able to return to our ancestral home.

Silentium est potente. Patientia est victoria.

— XXXIV Baron-in-Absentia Lucir Mondaki

    Hey, welcome back!

    I wasn’t very clear on how sabotaging the “mutation remedies” might relate to returning “home”. Otherwise, it has a suitably architect-of-the-end-of-the-world feel to it.

    Once again, good to see you back!

    Thanks. :D Glad I was able to come up with some stuff to write. It’s been too long.

    Covertly sabotaging the mutation remedies allowed the nation to appear to be trying to assist Barona/Ravenwood, but what the writer actually wants is the population to be wiped out. Then the cure can be ‘allowed’ to be discovered to tame the wildlife for the Barony-in-exile to return.
