Bruma居民Baenlin在一场不幸事故中丧生!

其侄继承宅邸

Phineas Farnsworth报导

对于Bruma城——一座以连年降雪和Skyrim般酷寒的天气而闻名的城市的居民来说,没有什么比家中的温暖和安全更重要了。然而即便最可靠的居所也能匿藏着致命的隐患。对于Baenlin,以Bruma为家近43年的一名年长的精灵贵族,死亡并非缘于寒冷,也非强盗的刀刃,而是由于一个更加隐秘的杀手——建筑不稳固。

据长期在Baenlin家中服侍的男仆Gromm说,他主人去世的那天与平日无异。Baenlin遁世而居,很少离开他舒适的家。他早上吃早餐,下午读书、打打瞌睡,但是在晚上临睡前,当Baenlin习惯性地在他最喜欢的椅子里放松时,灾难降临了。椅子正上方挂着的一只实心牛头装饰砸了下来,措手不及的贵族被砸中,当场死亡。

Baenlin的死亡是一场可怕的事故,然而更可怕的是,这并非如同人们先前所想的那样是一场意外。实际上,通过一系列的采访与深入调查,Black Horse Courier获悉,Bruma的许多居所都是危险建筑。

“我和我儿子们,我们给一半房子做修理工。真TMD(<-汉语居然被屏蔽了…)一团乱!烂木头,锈铁钉,歪地基。那些诺德人,他们是能喝能打,但他们连个象样的房子也盖不出来!”

Antoine Dubois,Dubois and Sons木工坊——一个正处于鼎盛时期,总部设在Breton的国度High Rock的建房公司——的主人这样说。凭着他精湛的手艺,Dubois的服务遍布整个帝国,且曾因多种原因造访Bruma城。在他看来,这座诺德人的大城市代表了整个帝国最糟糕的建筑水平。

“是啊,我知道那些诺德人是怎么说的。都是因为雪!它泡烂了木头,它这么的,它那么的。全是瞎掰,瞎掰!那些就会喝的野人连橡木和橘子都分不清。事实是,他们根本不知道最新的建筑理念是什么。他们盖的东西既邋遢又危险。那个砸在精灵身上的头?连婴儿都能绑得比他们好!那堆绳子松了一点也不奇怪!而在Bruma到处都是这种豆腐渣工程。你知道在我修圣堂屋顶之前,去祈祷的人都没有一个能在里面不挨雪浇的吗?真是有毛病。”

Baenlin的侄子Caenlin继承了宅邸,现正居住在其叔毙命的房间中。当我们询问他对整个事件的看法时,他说:

“这是一次非常、非常悲惨的事故。我总是告诉我可怜的叔叔说那个头总有一天会砸到他的,但他怎么也不肯听。还有,我听到谣传说这可能是一次蓄意谋杀,那当然是一派胡言。大家都知道这座城市快要倒塌了。这种事可能发生在任何人身上。”

于是,在Bruma城为失去一位资历最老、最受尊敬的居民而哀悼时,人们则忍不住去想——下一个会是我吗?

SPECIAL EDITION!
BRUMA'S BAENLIN DIES IN TRAGIC ACCIDENT!
Nephew inherits estate
by Phineas Farnsworth


For the residents of Bruma, a city known for its snowy avenues and frigid, Skyrim-like temperatures, nothing is quite as important as the warmth and safety of one's own home. But even the most secure dwelling can harbor a deadly secret. In the case of Baenlin, an elderly Elf nobleman who had called Bruma home for nearly forty-three years, death came not from the icy cold, nor from the sting of a burglar's blade, but from a killer far more insidious -- structural instability.
According to Gromm, Baenlin's longtime live-in manservant, the day of his master's death was like any other. Baenlin lived as a recluse, and rarely left the comfort of his home. He spent his morning breakfasting, and his afternoons reading or napping, but it was in the late evening hours before bedtime, when Baenlin relaxed in his favorite chair as was his custom, when disaster struck. A stuffed Minotaur head mounted on the wall directly over the chair came crashing down, killing the unsuspecting noble instantly.
As horrible as Baenlin's death may seem, even more horrible is the revelation that this was not an isolated incident, as previously thought. In fact, through a series of interviews and an in-depth investigation, the Black Horse Courier has learned that many of Bruma's homes are actually deathtraps waiting to spring.
"Me and my boys, we done repair work on half these houses. They're a bleedin' mess! Rotted wood, rusty nails, misaligned foundations. Them Nords, they're good for drinkin' and killin', but they can't build a house worth a damn!"
So said Antoine Dubois, owner of Dubois and Sons Carpentry, a thriving house-building business headquartered in the Breton nation of High Rock. Because of his expertise, Dubois has been known to offer his services throughout the Empire, and has visited Bruma on numerous occasions. In his opinion, this predominantly Nord city features some of the most poorly-constructed dwellings in all the Empire.
"Yeah, I know what the Nords say. It's the snow! It's rots the wood, it does this, it does that. Whine, whine, whine! The mead-swillin' savages wouldn't know oakwood from oranges. Truth is, they just don't know anything about the latest architectural methods. The work is unsafe and sloppy. That head that fell on the Elf? An infant could've secured those bindings better! It's no wonder they came loose! But I've seen this type of thing all over Bruma. Did you know that until I came in to do repair work on the roof, you couldn't attend a service in the Chapel without getting snowed on? Now that's just wrong."
When asked what he thought of the issues, Baenlin's nephew, Caenlin, who inherited his uncle's estate and is now residing in the very house where he was killed, had this to say:
"It was a tragic, tragic accident. I always told my poor uncle that head would fall on him some day, but would he listen? Now, I've heard the rumors that some think there was foul play involved, but that's nonsense, of course. Everybody knows this city is falling apart. It could have happened to anyone."
And so, as the city of Bruma mourns the loss of one of its oldest and most respected residents, there are those who can't help but wonder -- am I next?
