Written upon a high quality strip of prepared vellum, which is adorned with the wax seal of Margrave Salksilek, which consists of three plum coloured poppy blossoms upon a rippling field of aegean blue, is addressed to the main barracks of the Civic Guard.
- Arangire Uzzo Salksilek, Thron ul-Bain ul-Silbranth, member of the Drachean Council.This Arangire is writing this missive on behalf of the well being and security of the citizenry of Drache. This past evening I was informed by one of my riverboat captains concerning a strange sight upon the banks of the River Darian. Upon further investigation this one observed various native species of plants, and some invasive species, that had grown to unnaturally large proportions thereupon. It is advised to take steps in cordoning off these portions of the river bank from general traffic, as due to the nature of these flora. Several of these species exhibit poisonous toxins which may adversely effect those in proximity, some of which appear to also have physical defenses that may prove fatal to any caught unawares to their natures. Several Drachean wharf roaches have also been observed in the area, which are unnaturally aggressive, and unnaturally larger in size than their mundane counterparts. It is this one's belief that some manner of magical interaction linked to a type of healing magicks has served to alter and transform these flora and fauna, however, the catalyst of which is currently unknown and may serve to assist in resolving the matter.
The Margrave offers the following advice: 1.) Cordon off and secure the area to lessen accidental public endangerment. And 2.) Refrain from burning any of these species of flora, several of which are toxic, as these will be carried and transmitted by the impurities of their smoke over a far larger area and effect citizenry at large. 3.) Refrain from haphazard investigation, these species of flora and fauna may prove fatal if provoked and stimulated. 4.) Mundane destruction of these plants serves to invigorate their growth, please refrain from any destruction that is not in full and wholly contained, lest it make matters worse.
