Corporal Blinn, you and your men are being positioned outside the gates. Trust me, it's for your own good. Life on the inside with our new Empress is not what you're used to.
With Ramsey out of the picture, those of us who sided with him in support of Delilah are thinning out quickly. Some have deserted, others have, well, let's just say they've offended our new ruler once too often.
So here are your orders: Don't expect food or pay. Take what you can from the neighborhood and surrounding district. Call it a tax. And should an attack come, from any quarter, defend the gate. Even if your checkpoint falls, you'll buy us time to prepare for an assault.
