Bandits have attacked and set fire to two Mirish settlements along the Mirish-Stygustan border. Mirish forces pursed the bandits, but were turned back at the border by threats from Stygustan military units.
Reports from the area confirm unusual Stygustan military activity and build up on the border with Mirish. Refugees from Stygustan are entering Mirish with tales of woe and much gnashing of teeth.
General Pereira has been dispatched to provide non-military relief to the area. Efforts to instigate peaceful discussions with the Stygustan government have been rebuffed numerous times.
When questioned on his way to the front, Pereira confirmed his desire to find "a final solution that will bring everlasting peace to the area."
