Tragedy in Norwick

  • In the wake of an attack that has left around 50 people murdered in cold blood, the Chauntean priestess Anna Blake coordinates with the Chauntean temple to see to the burial of those who perished. With most of their remains maimed beyond recognition, Anna makes the decision to have the remains cremated.

    Any families and next of kin that may have survived are given the option to have a casket and a tombstone made if they wish, Anna herself willing to cover expenses if they prove too much.

    The Chauntean priestess will be conducting a funeral within the next few days (to be determined whether in game or forums pending if I can get a DM to attend). The ashes of the fallen at that point after the ceremony will be scattered onto the fields the fallen have worked so hard to tend over the many years they lived their lives to provide for Norwick and its people.

  • (Upon reflection, due to the nature of the subject matter, I don't think I'll hold an IG RP for what happened afterall since it hits a bit too close to home)

    As days have finally passed, with any and all those that gather at the funeral, Anna would be conducting the funeral out in one of the farm fields owned by a family that had been annihilated in the blast.

    With no shortage of tears being shed, the Chauntean priestess herself would keep her eyes dry for now, and with a somber grace, commence the funeral proceedings for the victims that had fallen.

    Opening with a small prayer to the grain goddess, she would eventually transition into offering condolences to all the families who have lost those they care about. Listing the names of every one who had fallen, one by one, until they have all been mentioned. Commemorating their legacy as integral parts of Norwick, as the unsung heroes who helped provide for their community, after some time she would finally bring matters to a close.

    With one final prayer, in what looked like a very large ornate wheel barrow with Chauntean markings decorated for this ceremony, the ashes of the fallen visible in plain sight once she lifted the tarp covering them. Bring the wheel barrow through the fields, if anyone wished, they were encouraged tp sprinkle some of the ashes on their fields if they wished. Upon arriving at the final destination a large hole dug just east of the fields near the scar, the ashes would be laid to rest there finally, poured in and covered with dirt once more. The wheel barrow itself then would rest upon the mound, serving as a marker of respect to those have fallen.
