Gungla Island Trip

hh_peaceful.gif

Creed sent the following report to TMN:

"On Terrdi, day 36 of Winter, 556, a large group of healers gathered more or less by accident in response to a fallen or two at north farms. Led by Harper, we ended up on an impromptu healer hunt to Mid and South Pass, progressing fairly quickly from a mosey to a bit of a tight spot:

"and then to some wendie-bashing mayhem:

wendy_smashing.gif

"All was well that ended well as several fighters and additional healers came to our rescue, and the healer rabble dispersed.

"Later that day, I got to make my first trip to Gungla Island with Clan Destine. I am still fairly new in the lands, and not very well travelled, especially when it comes to the other islands in our area. Led by Rhone and Sian, several of us (including myself, Sabine, Sim, Bakunan and Ootog) went exploring, eventually making our way to the GI Pit.

"The cave there was very, very busy:

"and our hunt/exploration turned into a gigantic rescue, with quite a few exiles joining the effort to clear the cave of cobras and other nasties and to heal the many fallens.

"In spite of all the falling (or maybe because of it?!?), a good time was had by all. Thanks to the many exiles who sailed over to help out. I really enjoyed seeing some new places and critters and earned good experience, too."

Lined Up Like Drakes in a Pond

drakes_lined_up.jpg

Bakunan sent the following report to TMN:

"Gunslinger alerted people to a single Forest Drake in Northwest Forest. I tagged along with him, Viola, Kani, Elrod, and Talin. The drake numbers were increasing faster than the others could take them out, often six at a time. The fight spilled east to North Forest. The last body count (by Kani) was 21 and rising. Several drakes had flown away, but more were showing up. I had to withdraw (i.e. run screaming away) during a calm moment, but the others (joined by Wormtongue and Cyrrhi) were headed back into the forest."

Rebels Defeated

ptf_small.gif

Sor sent the following report to TMN:

"On behalf of the notorious anti-rebel group PTFF (Puddleby Task Force and Friends), I am glad to report that Phisney's Castle, formerly known as Tenebrion's Keep, has been rid of its rebellious squatters this day.

It has been several zodiacs now that rebels have been trying to hold and claim the whole island as their own. They even launched, with help from so-called Pirates, a quite ferocious assault on our town, which I heard was only repelled thanks to another cunning pirate trick.

I missed the event myself, but I was told that a rebel called Hari rebelled against the rebels and joined our side. Either from him or from hardy scouts, we learned that reinforcements would come with the approaching Chaos Storm, and that we would lose the island permanently if the keep was not reclaimed in time!
While this was not a very annoying threat, the prospect of more devastating invasions in Puddleby was quite worrying.

It seems that yesterday, a merry band led by the infamous Captain Stinkfist managed to make a dent in the rebels' defense before being blown apart (peaceful Flanders is put to blame, imagine that!).

When PTFF fighters jumped over the demesne's fence, they still found tough resistance and proceeded to wear the rebels down carefully. Mystic Raldin was called in to perform a few of soon-to-be-popular 'Flying Mystic Rescues.' Don't ask how they do that, but it's neat!

Eventually we were all able to stand in the yard outside the keep and fight down 3 of 4 dreaded Rebel Warlocks before yelling victory! From there we quickly scoured the keep, chasing rebels, stumbled up and down the tower and the basement, and checked the freezer and the zodiac maze. (Traveller's advisory: some guards who seem unreachable but should die of starvation soon are still lobbing boulders!).

ptf_fights_warlock.gif

Then we agreed to quickly tour the whole island, snell by snell, in search of the last rebels. A few were found, but they posed no real threat, and we left the island with the satisfaction to have done the most we could think of against rebels.

tktka.gif

The island should now be safe (that is, normally dangerous) to enter from all sides, as well as the keep. All exiles are invited to keep the chase on so that there are really no rebels left to welcome reinforcements when the storm hits!

This sanitary task brought to you by Puddleby Task Force (and Friends)!"
