Late night a group of young men, notably members of the group that was recently brought into the fold of the guard, were drinking in the tavern. Stories and drinks flowed between them and tempers began to flare when one of them pulled down a still hanging copy of the previously posted decree. "This is OUR city! We have no QUEEN!" The men shouted in agreement and simultaneously walked out of the tavern toward the line of smoke armored creatures surrounding the city. They shouted and yelled profanity at the creatures to no avail. Guard Tallum arrived on the scene to attempt to corral the men back into the tavern or to the guard tower to rest but was welcomed by a flurry of fists which caused a brawl to break out among the young men.
Three of the smoke like figures stepped out of line and placed themselves between the men and Guard Tallum, enraging the men further. In their inebriation, one of the men struck one of the figures.
The men were struck down and the figures returned to their posts.
Guard Tallum was unharmed.
Early morning several of the creatures broke rank and marched through the city streets, as if on patrol. Town guard urged people to stay in their homes and ushered people into buildings and out of sight. No one was harmed at this time but at the time that the creatures reached the tavern, more Posts were tacked to the walls.
"Subjects of the kingdom are hereby ordered to adhere to a curfew of midnight beginning immediately by order of her majesty."
The creatures then returned to their posts.
