Quinnsville Chronicler - Volume 3, Issue 1 - September 619 From the desk of Mayor Richard Brickford. Military Commander Returns from Fatu Hiva - Many months ago, our own Major Nathaniel Brickford sailed to the island of Fata Hiva on the Ship-of-the-Line HMS Dominance with a battalion of Quinnsville's finest. After doing some investigative work, trekking through the jungle and setting up a base of operations, the Major fearlessly led his troops into battle. Since the Natives were only armed with simple weapons when compared to the muskets and sabers of Corrington, the tribe was quickly dispatched. The rumors of caves of Gold turned out to be false but some crystal and flora was recovered for scientific purposes. In the end, the natives were an isolated threat deep within the jungle as Olean was able to rid itself of the real despicable individuals causing so much trouble near the settlement.

After spending many months on a sort of humanitarian mission in the settlement, Quinnsville welcomes the brave troops back home!
