of Ardenfall has taken note of the increased number of so-called
adventurers within the city. While the Council appreciates their

The Army has
discovered the possible means by which the dreaded Hill Giants have
been circumventing Watchtower. Another passage has been found branching

to the unwary or the unprepared.

horrors awaiting those foolish enough to disturb them. . . .
* A pioneering
farmer and his family, who settled north and west of Ardenfall,
have not been heard from in months. The Council hopes that no disaster
has befallen them.
* A powerful
Illithid is searching for a magical bracelet that was stolen from
him recently. Asked for a comment on this matter, Bram the Wizard
said, "I haven't got it and if I did I would give it back!"
