The event began quite beneficially with all parties resorting to trade or fellowship and there was little conflict at all. Tano of the Shalan’ti traders’ guild, Julian Kor’me and Lady Drusa, also of Shalan’ti, led the efforts of the denizens to trade the copious and eclectic goods that Eyr has to offer, but also some finery from Shalan’ti as well. Akane Kurisuti provided entertainment with her beautiful dancing, as well as the instrumentals of her ever-present rabble of musicians. Juni of the Moei Asing and Hope of Stormstead were content in aiding a mysterious black wolf who had been injured. Once joined by others, the trader’s fair truly seemed as it was advertised, a peaceful endeavor hosted by the Ebon Reach in order to draw in trade to their well decorated and plentiful Market.
Quite suddenly however, things took a turn for the worse. As lightning flashed and struck through the cavernous Reach. Its source was not readily apparent though by the words of the one known as Quiet, it seemed the dastardly lich, Ganis was somehow at fault. Strangely, he has not been seen since. And so the lightning continued to flash and upset the denizens who attended the market event. Many suffered severe burns and other wounds. And as they were being evacuated or leaving of their own volition, it became clear that the great blue crystals before the waters of the Kuvari inlet, bridged between the volcano and the market itself, were in effect amplifying the dangerous conditions. They were summarily destroyed, shattered.
Overall a truly remarkable event. Not only for its potential to bring in a variety of trade goods from about the realm, but also as a way to show the benign treatments shown forth by Quiet of the Ebon Reach. She did say, that no one would be tortured or kidnapped that day… fingers crossed. However, she can never speak for the Eternal or the now deceased lich and apparent master of the terrible nuisance Alexander. So it is very good to know, he is dead. Very dead.
