Broadcast of Statesman's Death

News stations all over the world were broadcasting the news of Statesman's death the night after it happened. The Freedom Phalanx wanted to keep it a secret, but it seems someone leaked the information to the press. One of the gloomier newscasts called Statesman's death...

The Fate of All Men

The news reports that the man behind Statesman's death was Darrin Wade. They do not go into the details about how he died, never mentioning that you and Back Alley Brawler travelled to the Isles to look for Darrin Wade's lair. Nobody knows Wade's true plan, that Statesman was just a stepping stone towards his goal to summon and become Rularuu. None of them know that Darrin Wade now has the power of Statesman; such a thought might instill too much fear into the populace of Paragon, even though Statesman was not the spotlight hero that he used to be.

You may always remember that moment when you stood over Statesman's body. His face was smiling. It almost looked like he was simply playing dead, if not for his lifeless eyes staring past you. It seems that Statesman welcomed his death; perhaps he finally grasped the rest he was looking for after fighting crime for several decades.

You saw one newscast which had Glacia as a guest star. The reporter asked Glacia what the world was going to do now without a hero as powerful as Statesman to protect us from villains like Wade and Recluse. Glacia slammed her fist into the table and told the reporter that the world still has heroes, such as yourself, who will stand up against people like Darrin Wade. Statesman may be dead, but it is not the end of the world. It is a new beginning for the people to see that there are hundreds of heroes who can stand and protect them from the evils of the world.
