Dandelion sent the following report to TMN:
Sol., 8 Autumn, 563
There's trouble, trouble, and more trouble brewing among the okras. Strange chanting and incursions into town, and smiling. I hate it when they smile. There've been okras of sorts I haven't seen before, with strange new powers.
We met in the Meadow, today, to help Ansset, K'vynn and Xel with something or other they were doing. Suddenly, there were bolts everywhere and many of us fell. The rest is a bit of a blur. There was a rescue . . . more fell . . . more rescues . . . bolters in town . . . people yelling about the altar being altered. At the Mystics' urging, when the town was safe, we took the fight to the Okra Camps. There was more than one kind of bolt coming from OC1, and many were very badly singed. MrFancyPants came up with a clever plan and the okras' resistance was soon cleared. We moved through the other Camps, one after another.
On the way out, Taryn found a fallen Hellraiser and we healed him up. But those bolts did something to him, I fear. He was unmoving, his eyes vacant. Not wanting to leave him there in that state, we knocked him out with the help of Diana D'Fey, and dragged him back to town. I've got him propped him up in my living room, holding the violets 'til we figure out what to do with him.
