Ye, Hear Ye,
The Council of Ardenia announces
that due to the increased dangers posed by Hill Giants and Bandits,
it will pay 2 gold per Giant head, or 5 silver per Bandit head,
to anyone presenting such trophies at the Town Hall on Stonekeep
good citizens of the Realm,
The City of Ardenfall itself
was attacked by a small but potent raiding party of Hill Giants,
led by a newly-seen creature called a Verbeeg. How these beings
circumvented Watchtower remains a mystery at this time. A group
of adventurers joined with an Army patrol to destroy the beasts,
but at the cost of many deaths.
The Army will send additional
patrols into the Midcrest range to attempt to keep the Giants from
surprising Ardenfall again. However, this will deplete the number
of men available for other duties.
exploring the moors northeast of Haon-Dor forest report the area
overrun with undead warriors who appear to congregate near a ruined
fortification. The area is said to be highly dangerous and should
be avoided by inexperienced parties.
- In addition, travelers
in Haon-Dor itself have complained of increased Warg and Spider
attacks. The Army is unable to conduct another sweep at present
and thus warns citizens of Ardenfall to avoid the forest unless
- Several would-be heroes
of the Realm recently lost their lives battling fearsome foes,
including the Sorceress of Midcrest and the Beholder of Thalos.
The Council reminds everyone that such beings are extremely dangerous
and are more than capable of dispatching their attackers.
