AC 1005 – Mystery in Thyatis City – The Concept

Set in Spring (Months 3 to 5) in AC 1004. I have moved the event to AC 1005 to make it part of Phase Two of the storyline.

Things have been busy in Thyatis lately. In recent months, the soldiers and sailors of the Thyatian army and navy, who are normally pushy and arrogant, have been outdoing themselves. On the Isle of Dawn, half of which is controlled by the Thyatian Empire and half by the Alphatian Empire is an uncomfortable state.

At the same time, Thyatian warships have been very confrontational towards ships of non-allied nations and have been accused of piracy against trade-ships from Norwold and other Alphatian territories.

Meanwhile, in Thyatis City, the gladiatorial festivities are more lavish than ever, the parties and festivals are being thrown more often and with wilder abandon, all in all, it’s a very entertaining place to be… until one spring day when everything goes wrong.

AC 1005 – Mystery in Thyatis City – The Reveal

AC 1001 – This is early staging for the military build up, as building enough ships to fight a war takes time, and the current fleet is not in the best shape. Funds are diverted from public works to build more ships.

AC 1002 – Due to the overloaded shipyards, they are expanded to cater for the extra workload needed and have their defences upgraded to better protect them. Funds are diverted from public works to expand the shipyards.

AC 1003 – To outfit an army, you need to have equipment and supplies, and places to store them. Orders are places with surrounding nations, new warehouses are being built, and stocks of food, armour and weapons are being amassed. Funds are diverted from public works, and the introduction of the zzonga fruit to the officers and officials of the capital begins.

AC 1004 – Recruitment of the expanded army begins, though it is unfocused and the best soldiers are being sent to shore up the surrounding cities leaving Thyatis City to be protected by the new recruits. The free bread rations of the city are halved to cut costs.

AC 1005 – Lack of training and discipline have hit the troops protecting Thyatis City, their gear is substandard, and the diversion of public funds has dropped the sanitation and medical needs of the city to breaking point. Then the free bread that feeds the populace as a staple is contaminated causing the breaking point and starting the riots.

AC 1005 – Mystery in Thyatis City – The Outcome

On that date, an enormous riot takes place in the Thyatis City. The lower classes have for months seen a steady decline in the quality of the free bread passed out every morning in the city, bread which sustains the life of thousands of poorer Thyatians. While the size of a typical loaf of bread has shrunk in half, the loaves handed out have been only half-cooked and usually swimming in maggots. Finally the city’s lower classes revolt, storming the Coliseum during one of the gladiatorial games.

Significantly, the Thyatian legions inside the city are poorly-trained and badly-led, they are unable to put down the rebellion. Far too many legions from other Thyatian cities have to be brought in to quell the insurrection, but quell it they finally do.

Over the next few weeks, the scandal continues to worsen as it is discovered that funds which were to be spent on the free bread were bring diverted to fund several senators nightly festivities, notoriously decadent affairs. Additionally, many Thyatian officers are charged with dereliction of duty or with incompetence, especially those who appear to be addicted to the dangerous zzonga fruit, they are executed.

Many of those convicted for embezzlement, bribery, and corruption break out of jail and leave for foreign parts, often in the company of their paramours, men and women of foreign nationality. Subsequent investigations of the Thyatian prisons reveal that they are rife with corruption, dozens of jailers and military officers involved with the prison system are exectuded.
