THE FIRST DEFEATED, SKY CLEARS — SPIDER FESTIVAL ARRIVES
THE FIRST DEFEATED, SKY CLEARS.
The First of the Akul’tiz, Xitoccanemun, was STRUCK DOWN recently by a band of Brave Warriors.
When the glass Sun in the Temple was properly prepared, Sister Tasrhhsu gathered willing fighters, and Mazrian led them into the Wicked Burrow mine, where it was believed the Akul’tiz were making their Lair. There, they were set upon by the vile mole-people — and again, the rogue Ogdaro — and there was a valiant struggle. However, we have PREVAILED! The First was killed! Miskton reported that his corpse was drawn into the ground.
Shortly after his death, the roiling clouds above abruptly ceased their movement. They shrank into pinpricks and disappeared, revealing a starry sky once again!
Although we were unable to secure witnesses in the carnage, we at the Herald can only assume that the glass Sun was successfully deployed.
HOLLOW EVE FESTIVAL ARRIVES.
In a fortuitous Coincidence, the giant Spider — what bears in its belly an astounding array of Shops and Games — arrived on the very eve of our Triumph. Come celebrate in the largest Gnome-made spider-building known to exist!
Of note, the operating Gnomes have added a “baby” spider to the main contraption, which contains several new shops and at least one new game. Many new rare materials were seen amongst the wares there. Further, an Enchanter stands there waiting, offering to enchant one’s weapons to produce Foods, Drinks, and such. Obviously it will be of great use to hungry hunters, and those who wish to distract their prey with delicious treats. It may be of less use to those hunters who would be distracted themselves by such delights.
The Witch Keishalae has already been spotted working, and Ritual Focus specialist Vatari agreed to attune items into foci (in addition to altering their appearance).
The Musiceum, in the baby spider, sells instruments of exquisite quality, including three of Limited quantity. Visit now, while they are still present.
Enjoy the sunlight, dear Zoluren.
[Don’t forget to look at the FESTIVAL verb, especially FESTIVAL ALTERATIONS for a list of alterers’ schedules.]
