Attention, good citizens of the Realm, The Ardenian Army, at
the request of the Council, recently undertook a mission to assist
the local Lumberjack Guild in ridding the Forest of Haon-Dor of
some of the more vile creatures that live within. While the mission
has been deemed a success, and most of the larger threats have been
exterminated, it should be noted that the forest is still home to

of hobgoblins in the hills below the Midcrest Mountains. While most
sightings have been peaceful, a few skirmishes have been reported.
Travellers should be especially careful in this region until more
detailed reports have been gathered.
