Devil's Leeches


Mordred Maerii sent the following report to TMN:

Today town was overwhelmed by some miserable little critters called Devil's Leeches. They bite really hard for something smaller than my toe, and they like to attack in swarms. I happened to be lounging in town by myself drinking some of Connie Crete's beer when they showed up. I killed a few, then they chased me into Gaia's Garden. I made faces at them from behind the fence and tried to alert the townfolk who were out hunting, but alas, the leeches learned to hop fences, and they laid the smackdown on me. Lots of folks fell, but eventually we rallied and fought them off. Town was saved, and I went back to Connie's beer. Uh, maybe don't mention the beer. . . Ooga!

Grank Talks to Rat; Sim, Antha Advance


Creed sent the following report to TMN:

Hey Para,

I saw something north of the Orchard that was new to me, and I thought I would share a couple of sketches even though this may be "old news" to many exiles.

I was hurrying north to see if I could rescue a fallen Klio just inside the entrance to NWF. Just as I emerged from the Orchard, I saw Grank shuffling along, but what was unusual (to me) was that he was also talking . . . to a rat! He was just in the act of saying, "Well, hello there . . . aren't you cute?" to a rat as I appeared in the snell.

I dashed past him and went on into NWF, found Klio and was able to raise her. She needed a quick break before hunting further, so we went back south into the snell between NWF and the Orchard. Grank was still shuffling about. And as you can see from these sketches, still talking to critters. Although I must add that he greeted me and Klio very politely as well. :-)

What an odd old fellow Grank is. Has anyone else seen him do this before?


In other news, Clan Destine is proud to report that our Halfling healer, brewer and zuer extraordinaire, Sim, has passed his 3rd Circle test! Congratulations, Sim!

Also, my friend Antha, a sylvan healer who is fairly new to the lands, recently passed her 2nd circle healer test. She is not a member of Clan Destine, but we congratulate her as well.

We were never here!
