(Week 2-10 recap)
It was an icy hole for all intents and purposes. Yes it worked quite well as Jemison Post’s jail, but since a criminal justice system had never really been implemented, it became a sort of slow death by madness and boredom.
Inside this hole, living together for months with tight rations made the members of the Frost Merc group begin to hate their captors.
At first there had been some goodwill. The Frost Mercs had heard the Banking Guilders were demanding their death by hanging, and the leaders of Jemison Post had refused it. So the Frost Mercs waited patiently for a few weeks. Every once in a while, one of their members would get interrogated. But since the Frost Mercs hadn’t been hanged, they thought they just needed to wait for a trail.
Then the ice pit got cramped, as the leaders of Jemison Post captured a bunch of Sea Kings prisoners. The Frost Mercs avoided the Bestial, but one of the Frost Mercs struck up a conversation with Drella.
The Illuminated told them of how the Jemison Post leaders had raided her mine and taken her people.
The Frost didn’t know what to make of their captors.
But time dragged on, and eventually the Sea Kings prisoners were marched from the hole and out to McGraw Harbor for a prisoner transfer.
The Frost Mercs thought, finally now they will remember us and give us a trial, but it wasn’t meant to be. Instead they struggled to get enough food (the entire post was under tight rations due to lack of food production) and tried their hardest not to give up hope.
