ROYAL FAMILY RETURNS — ICE EELS ATTACK TRAVELERS — GUARDIANS CONTINUE ATTACK ON ZOLUREN
ROYAL FAMILY RETURNS
The Royal ship, the Jewel of Zoluren, along with her escort ships, has Returned to the Zoluren harbor. An official Zoluren guardsman at DiSilveron manor confirmed the arrival of all three Royals: Princess Arilana and her two Children, Belirendrick IV and Inavia. Aislynn reported that Seneschal Maghana mentioned that Andreshlew is having difficulties due to recent Storms, so that may be the reason for their Return from their island haven.
We at the Herald pray that Drogor’s Wrath is brief and that the Merelew people remain safe.
ICE EELS ATTACK TRAVELERS, STORMS CONTINUE
On the ferry that travels between Ilaya Taipa and Ain Ghazal, a small group of Intrepid Adventurers was beset by an attack of the Strangest degree. Tankata, one of those present, reported that some slush gathered itself into the very Form of several ICE EELS, which each bit one of the party members before taking off INTO THE SKY. We note the similarity of this attack to the recent Shark attacks on several innocents, which also involved seemingly innocuous water (even small puddles) presenting sharks to unassuming victims.
An anonymous source reported to the Herald today that Hurricane force winds were present in Riverhaven. Added to the storms of Andreshlew and Mistanna Redivas’s report of such Terrible storms in Ilithi, and it appears that a Pattern is developing.
GUARDIANS CONTINUE ATTACK ON ZOLUREN
Rock guardians of many different Types have lately been wont to Attack Zoluren, both at Dirge and at at least Three of the gates of the Crossing: the Northeast, the North, and the West. Each attack focused on a Single area. It is unknown yet why they have chosen to attack, but it is well known that rock guardians are protective of stones, so given their focus on Dirge they MAY be protesting the Mining that takes place there. However, no guardians have deigned to comment.
The guardian is a formidable opponent, being a Construct made of various kinds of stone that stands some TWENTY FEET in height. Those made of different stones appear to have differing abilities, in the following Order (from least to most difficult). They are also known to THROW SMALL BOULDERS.
- andesite ~~ similar to the thicket viper
- alabaster (?)
- rock guardian
- marble ~~ similar to the young gryphon
- obsidian ~~ similar to the scaly seordmaor
Earth and Water are both proving dangerous lately. Take care, Zoluren.
