Corks have been flying in what Bat and Jarf leaders are calling “the bloodiest day in Forsaken House history.”  Several Jarves and Bats have been wounded in corkings, and a Jarf was beaten with a glove.  Forsaken House DPS has reportedly been flooded with calls and concerns but will not intervene.  More as the story develops.

As of Thursday, March 12th, 2008: An empty Bat colony guarantees the continuance of the “Silent MAYES agreement”…  Jarf leaders calling the weekend absence of Bats “a chance to think long and hard about solutions to sectarian issues… New Randyman expose may incense longtime fans accoring to FHN source… MAYES to meet with Bat leaders over the weekend to assure continuance of ceasefire… Jarf leaders enthused by meetings, though they will be absent… Snate leaders say Bat-Jarf separation “beginning of the end” of violent winter…Sivitsbirds defeat Jarves in basketball playoff, next meeting to come soon… More news as events warrant… Stay tuned to Forsaken House News for updates.

A source close to both sides of the Forsaken House Civil War said despite an obvious Bat allegiance from dignitary MAYES, his presence has had an overall positive effect.

“Having seen the way they interact now as compared to then, it’s a totally different process.  It’s like night and day.”  The source chose to stay anonymous, but also said s/he had ties to the Snate community and that they were “pleased with the political process since MAYES’ visit as well.”  When asked what s/he thought about the coming months, s/he said “it’s obvious that the threat of violence still lingers, but now the hope for peace is much higher.”

Cease-fire talks are still ongoing while Forsaken House DPS has reported no incidents since “Bloody Friday” erupted in several corkings.

As part of an ongoing series to understand the sectarian violence that has plagued the community, Forsaken House News interviews various members of the community. These are their words:

Anonymous, Palubat, 27: “I live in Bat Cave South. It’s still a decent place. There are hard working Bats here. We have nice windows, lots of space. Bats belong here. There are Tabs now, I see them on my way to Hallway drinking Jraf juice. I don’t bother them, though, and they don’t bother me. The thing about it is, I grew up… I grew up alongside Jarves, Milesmen, Sharkeys, Snates… I don’t have any problems with any of them. But this younger generation… It’s easier to get a cork here than a book. And they don’t know any mixing with Jarves because they haven’t experienced that world yet. They have no respect for the police because the police stop them or accuse them of corkings they didn’t even do. I hate the corkings. I hate the sound of it. I know when someone gets corked in Hallway that it’s a matter of time before the DPS tears through here. But I won’t leave. This is my home.”
