“I Am Coming”

“A ploom of blackness appeared as if from nowhere.  Swirling.  Swirling.  All blackness gathered at the center of our own reef.  And when it dissipated, there it was.  The body of a horrifically murdered mer corpse strapped to a wooden plank and left here planted within our own Reef territory. “

“That is exactly how it happened and as it appeared before me.  The Talisae has asked me to pass this information and recall those of the Deep back to the waters.  This is an act of war.  Those unsworn to the Deep will no longer be allowed to pass through our territory unchallenged.”

This was the initial report I received from the Deeper emissary.  The Mer herself seemingly calm at the surface but nervousness revealed in mannerisms and speech.  The Mer was clearly upset.  But from the information delivered it is clear that the skeleton left near Tillikambo was only the first part of the message.  

“I AM COMING”

The first installment of the message “I AM” was found on the skeletal corpse left facing Tillikambo within Moei Asing territory.  This second corpse, though not stripped completely of flesh, has the message “COMING” carved into the forehead.  The void taint was left at the first site.  Ffewuu would neither confirm nor deny the presence of void magics around this second corpse but we can only surmise.  As a continuation of the first message I have strong suspicion that void magics are again at the heart of the matter.

Powers we have not seen at the surface level are no longer dormant.   There is rising tension in the valley and deadly messages being left.  All of this packaged with the void taint.  All these signs point to the Reach.  It is on the rise again.   

Timing could not be worse.  The Moei Asing have been strangely silent.  Juni has not been seen and many are beginning to suspect foul play.  Stormstead has had a tenuous peace with the Moei Asing and Kuvari’s Deep. But if the Deepers are attempting to recall their members, this is cause for alarm for it could lead to a fallout.  Does this mean former alliances and agreements are dissolving?  Stormstead needs to gather it’s friends and allies together.  Guardhouse has been restocked but largely for physical assault.  A call to our magic casters must be made.

I would call for a Stormstead Meeting.  Those interested in the realm and defending against the evils that inhabit it must rally together.  I will continue to report as I am able and will post signs in the tavern once the meeting is set.

An Attack on the Tavern! Boobette Near Death

BoobetteBoobette was found severely beaten the victim of attempted strangulation.   Her poorly abused body had been stuffed inside the hollowed out remains of a dolphin’s corpse.  Blood once again soaks into the tavern floor. 

The bar wench and former Stormstead Mayor contender remains in serious condition under the watchful eye of the Master Healer, Hope.  Boobette has not yet awoken to point to a perpetrator but we are hopeful that this will happen soon.  Boobette is a well known and well loved member of the Stormstead Community.  This act that was carried out against her and the poor sea creature was an overt act of aggression.  Not only against one of our own but in a place known to be a welcoming gathering place and open to all.  

Suspicions mount and citizens are urged to be on their guard.  This act along with the horrific and ominous happenings near the Mystfolk Mound call for action. 

Boobette is an open and kind-hearted woman, not known to withhold her affections for anyone. The macabre scene and how the poor wench had been abused so poorly was horrific.  It sends a clear message of a twisted mind or one that has been twisted with dark void magics.   If her body had not been discovered behind the bar, she would have died there.   We send thanks to Hope, Nia, and Voskil for their work in discovering and escorting Stormstead’s favorite tavern wench to the Medica for recovery and treatment. 

I would urge you to remain vigilant and carry your weaponry. Be wary and on guard for suspicious behavior and watchful of strangers.  Whoever did this used the poor wench has a twisted nature.  It could indeed even be someone that walks among us. Citizens use caution!

An Evil Portent Wrapped in Void Taint


—     “I AM” was the message on the skeleton. —


 What “I Am” means and to whom is a mystery.   The skeleton stands mounted to a wooden stake in the meadow below Tilikambo.  Arms outstretched and empty eyesockets staring up toward the Asing power base, Mount Tilikambo.  The creature’s bones striated and etched without so much as a stitch or scent of flesh left on them.  Only thin white sinews holding it together.

The meadow site below Tilikambo is all the more confusing for the general chaos around it.  A makeshift perimeter barrier had been placed around the skeleton.  Broken and bent outward as if something had escaped or fled.  Nearby a tent.  Trampled grass.   Fresh bloodstains and a bloodied ax.  A meadow which has not know much unrest since the meteor landed there last year.  

 

Skelly Taint- without clue givers

“I Am” is the Message. 

I arrived at the site yesterday morning.  Charles appears to have arrived at the scene just prior to my arrival.  Former lich was studying the skeleton but had no opinions as to whom it could have been.  One of the many questions is whether the poor soul had been alive or dead when this happened.  These were not the bones of someone dug from the earth.  They were fresh – showing none of the porous quality normally shown as they would naturally decompose.

 

The feel of void taint was about the site. Charles himself who has been infected.   Felt strongest in his presence nonetheless there were traces around the skeleton itself.  Ebon Reach is at the heart of this.  If the void is involved they are at the root of it.    We would do well to seek a cleric.  One that can be trusted.  We need to gather weaponry and be prepared.  There was a feeling of discord withi the site.  The message is incomplete.  I feel there is more to come.  Check on your friends and neighbors and seek out those missing.  Pray that the skeleton is not friend or family member.  

I feel that a time of great trouble is about to befall us.  There is a mystery to be unraveled.  I sought out the Asing but none could be found.  Normally I would find Juni at the Great Tree or one of her followers.  The ceremonial fire burned in the pit but there was a feeling of emptiness… a hollowness.  The village, it too was empty when I arrived.  A few jungle elves paddled by on the river but ignored my calls to catch their attention.  Be ready.  Be prepared.  Those of us who call this home must stand together.
