A: Every Fen Presidential election is packed with various conspiracies. Welcome to the first one.

I'm writing you to report of a new ally in the fight against evil! Recently, "Salad" the Alley Cat has appeared in town and has taken to clearing Puddleby of all kinds of monsters. I drew this sketch of Salad earlier. So far I've seen Salad killing everything from rats to Darshak!
The Sentinel now makes a strange and ominous sound.
New types of powerful myrms have appeared in the hive and are venturing into Puddleby.

Hunter sent the following report to TMN:
Dongle asked me to take a couple pictures and forward them to you, so here they are. He strutted into town saying he found some ore, then proceeded to drop several Earthstones. The next day he left even more on the ground in town center. Apparently there's a rather large hole in his sack.
In other news, Elindir' has joined OWE. Read more about it on OWE News.
Elindir' sent the following report to TMN:
Recently, a small Metz group hunting inside the Gloamings cave found a new path that requires full Trillbane (or close to it) to open. At the end of the river, there is a small crevice where this path lays.
"Talin squeezes between the stalagmites."
Immediately after entering the path, we found ourselves outside of the Metz island. This path is an easy exit out of the Gloamings cave!

Azriel has posted his report on Chaos Storm 527: Continued Darshak activity on Tenebrion's Island, including the construction of new outposts and docks, the presence of supply and troop ships, and a now-abandoned tunnel; the large hole in the area east of Flander's Field that leads to the Annulus in the Ethereal Plane; and a PTF trip to the Thaumaturge's Lair under Ash Island.
Lorikeet sent the following report to TMN:
I was with a group that fought off the Darshak from the south entry of TI to the west exit. Then we decided to go to the keep. I was stunned to see what had happened to the area east of the Poppy Field in the short time since I had been there previously. The hole the Darshak apparently made when their kyuem efforts went awry has become very sinister-looking, as has the surrounding area. It is now very dark and gloomy.
Measle reports on the Clan Lord Sentinel that Malkor has been repromoted to full mystic status.
Could her disappearance be related to the recent incident involving Skirwan and her Zo namesake tossing Wangah Rah down the very same chasm?
DeathLord reports on the Clan Lord Sentinel that a Darshak Carrier Parrot was killed in Town Center. It dropped a scroll with a coded message.

Bakunan sent the following report to TMN:
Looks like the Cloud has changed a bit, as the smog at the opening has finally cleared.
Guess the no-smoking ban in the mystic control room turned out for the best.
P.S. I wonder if it was inspired by this image from "If Thooms Had Cameras"?
Gloria sent the following report to TMN:
I have been following the news through your organization, and it is a fine source of reporting for the community. I just wanted to mention that some Darshak spies were found in town recently. At first glance, they seemed like ordinary citizens of Puddleby, but they had a revealing tendency to slash at people with a knife that gave them away as spies. I wonder if the spies might try to hide within our community, masquerading as regular citizens, and then use their positions to bring ruin to Puddleby. The spies seem characterized by their green clothing.
