There's an uneasiness of late that lows over the Historic District.
Murmurs fill the Inn...
It's been days since Feril was last seen begging about the Faceless.
And Celic swears that he saw another pauper's pale remains at rest in the mortuary.
Milli remarks that the Tiel family is mad with worry.
Their youngest son having wandered out beneath the bright moon above the farm, a few evenings past.
No doubt into the arms of his paramour Eni, of the neighboring Ediks.
Neither of which has yet to return by all accounts. Perhaps they've simply eloped. That must be the reason.
Drinks flow slow and thoughtfully...
Having been in a stalemate for months now, the kobolds and gnomes, backed by Sapphire Order squads, have resumed their fighting. The bodies of gnomes and kobolds can be seen in small piles at varying points of conflict in the forests surrounding Arabel. There are more kobolds than gnomes, but it is only a matter of time before the lizards gain an advantage. Captain Grakas has been seen consulting local mercenary leaders for reinforcements...
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.
