Creed sent the following report to TMN:
I have a few more submissions for TMN. Many interesting, funny and/or newsworthy events have taken place in our puddly little town over the past few days!
Lately there have been several times when healers have been very hard to come by. As you can see by one of my sketches, I was recently the only healer in the lands (except for Stora) for a little while one day. On another occasion, during a hunt at the noids cavern, we realized that we had all four available healers with us!
The brave exiles of Puddleby repelled an invasion a few days ago that began with rats and vermine and ended in a full-scale Darshak attack. I was able to make a few sketches during the vermine invasion, including a sketch of Phineas doing his usual brave deeds. I was too busy wielding moonstone and cad during the Darshak invasion to make any sketches, but it was an impressive defense effort, and of course, the exiles prevailed.
Two more random sketches . . .
I have to tease my friend Chance just a little. She was fighting in the meshra cavern, and was much wounded by meshra, Lair Guardians, etc. . . . but when she fell, it was to a leech. A LEECH! Oh, the humanity . . .
And last but not least, I was hunting in the passes with Nyx and Bleign when we were felled by a large group of wendies and night wendies. Bleign fell in a different snell than Nyx and I, but after a few minutes, he suddenly appeared—dragged over the snell boundary by a wendy. This was a most odd wendecka. It seemed to be more intelligent than its fellows—at least it seemed to be trying to communicate. It beat its chest several times and exclaimed "Ook!" as if trying to tell us something.
Enjoy the sketches . . .
