Citizens alike fear the hideous creature which has appeared in recently days, a form so hideous and wicked it is said anyone whom gaze upon its horrid form will be eternally damned. For the hideous Shadow Beak is the stuff of nightmare, feeding upon the souls of the fallen whilst perverting the life of the living. A beast which must be struck down, once and for all.
Word spreads through the region quicker than a wintry wind.
The second Raloris sibling, Zumren the wizard, has met her fate.
Many in Arabel and the land are quick to criticize the elven embassy for releasing her soul to Arvandor. Many say that was unjustified end for all the crimes she and her brothers committed. Others dismiss the issue saying Zumren is dead and no longer a threat, and that is the final outcome desired.
Either way, the Palace and the elven embassy celebrate the adventurers, led by Watcher Francis, the Blue Mage Olise and the Great Druid Nan.
House Misrim celebrates yet another heroic deed by its senior retainer, Victor Grauch as well. The other adventurers are rewarded in gold coin and whatever treasure they found possessed by Zumren.
The number of werecrocs and ooze has diminished seemingly overnight. A group of adventurers, led by an elf and a Tower mage, report great progress in resolving the corrupted coasts.
And, along with the death of the great hydra, fishing and morale have turned positive. But the problem is not yet over, and the towns' bounty still stands.
Arriving late at night, a horse back riding convoy from Thunderholme enters Arabel before making themselves comfortable in the embassy. Partying through the night, until the blaring of a warhorn rouse the warriors whom then departs towards Irondrake in high spirit.
