Hear Ye, Hear Ye,
The Council of Ardenfall
is pleased to announce the expansion of Ardenia to encompass the
valuable iron mines west of Haon-Dor. The area, formerly occupied
by the reclusive Wolften, was peacefully annexed with absolutely
no military intervention required. The mines may be reached by taking
the roads south of
Ardenfall or Hamlet, then
heading west and eventually north until the mining village is reached.
The Council reminds all citizens that the mines are the property
of Ardenia, and any attacks on the miners will be met with swift
* In related news, advance
scouts report a strange valley, accessible via a cliff south of
the swamps near the miens, populated by hideous owl-bear hybrids.
The Army is pleased to announce
the opening of the Ardenfall-Greendale road once again. Passage
to this village, well east of the city, is possible once more. However,
the Army must warn that careless travelers may stumble upon the
ruins of Ulmark First-King's castle, now a derelict inhabited by
many strange and dangerous creatures.
* Whispered tales from
heroic adventurers indicate that an old passage deep in Midcrest
Mountain leads to a series of warrens and burrows. Therein reside
fearsome Cave Wights, Ur-Viles, and perhaps even more fearsome beasts,
if the wildest rumors can be believed.
* Bram the Wizard makes
the following announcement: "In response to complaints from
my most valuable customers -- that is, those calling themselves
adventurers -- I will no longer sell advanced spellbooks to non-adventurers.
I will continue to provide the finest books, potions, wands, and
other magical paraphernalia at fair prices."
