could you spare some sanctuary for elendel ?
l
Elendel the level 10 half-elf warrior has cured me of my ailment.
a citizen taunted me so i attempted to charm it... however my spell
was flawed and somehow it became partially reversed. The citizen
then had me equip it and cast spells on it. It then tried to kill Elendel.
Elendel won the fight and i was freed from the treachery of the citizen.
this was the second time that the citizen tried to kill Endel. the first time
the citizen knew it would loose so it gave 100000 coins to endel to spare
his life. Shortly after this i equipted the citizen and he began his torment.
My gratitude goes out too you Endel.

Subject: Thomas and Epyranth 2
He explained that we needed to travel to Djakiar for the
prophecies of Chronos to come to pass. Thus, we sought the
help of Master Bolkins, as he had provided safe passage to
several Xanthean adventurers in the past. However, before
he was able to send us to the island through the use of his
device, the vampire Cireen yet again appeared from nowhere.
Bolkins, ever resourceful as he is, was ready for her; from his
sleeve he slid a Utonium dagger, and met her advance with
a mighty slash: Cireen howled in pain and fled, leaving one of
her fingers mangled and bloody on the ground.

It was thus that we were able to transport to Djakiar, where we
were joined by Father Anaeas. We regrouped our party and soon found
a massive doorway made of stone. Thomas instructed
us that this was the place where the prophecy of Chronos would
come to pass; however, we were unable to find a way to penetrate
the massive stone walls of the cave.

"War is still on, you fleabag"

These are the words you left me not even 2 weeks ago.
If my clan wishes me to make peace with you, that is what I
will do: Your input is not relevant to the process.

To the Forsaken, I say this: Those of you of honor who wish to cut
your ties with the Forsaken may yet find a home in Acerbus.
Those of you who remain at Cedrick's side will surely find nothing
but death and suffering.

Do not pretend to be the peacekeepers of Xantheus.
Do not pretend to be the voice of reason.
Do not pretend to be anything but the worthless bug you are.

PS. If Acerbus is dying, why have some of your more honorable members
left to join our halls in recent weeks? Get a clue, or you will
soon find yourself with more open leadership positions than members.

People of Xantheus,
I have very grave news. Brother Andersen come to us requesting
us to scout the area of the Darkwood Forest. So a big group of us went
out and started looking around, We came across creatures of all sorts.
many orcs, elven rangers, snakelike creatures, etc. But we were able to
find out that a powerful Warlock was causing the forest to decay. We were
able to kill him. And we thought all would be well. Except the one known as Sau
l decided to continually attack Sir Palermo Roedran. Causing great distraction
amongst us. Then the one known as Fane Vattar came and tried to take over Broth
er Andersen, and Andersen was trying to fight him off, but orcs and trolls
continually came after him. We all tried to destroy the trolls... Well most of
us tried. Jamuraa and Saul decided instead of helping Andersen, they thought
lets attack Sir Palermo while he is trying to help save us. So Fane finnaly
closed his grip on Brother Andersen and basically ensured our doom.
I hope a miricale will happen soon, because we sure need it.

Stotriz came to Mirza and wished to trade with us.
He asked for a dwarven crest, with a warhammer and
a pickaxe over a shining mountail of mithril.
None of us have heard of it before, so we went to
the dwarven village to try to find some information.
We talked to the owner of the Hide & Tooth store,
but he refused to tell us anything. We then went to
Hellspires to visit Dragg. He was able to identify
the crest as that of the Hraucis clan. The clan was
annihilated and the remnants of the clan settled in
the dwarven village. After thanking Dragg, we then
went and paid the storekeeper another visit, but
he was uncooperative as before and even threatened
to call the guards on us. We left and visited
Granite Head, the baker. When asked about Hraucis,
he too was uncooperative. Wandering around the
dwarven village, we bumped into the mazekeeper,
who attacked us for mentioning the queen,
and then the doctor from the hospital. Neither were
able to help us. Finally, we stumbled upon Rhartic,

Subject: Execution
Yes, Palermo, it is hard for me to host the duel roles. One as a
Knight of Xantheus, and the other as Leader of Nonla Arahnala. If
the trial is held and the people want an execution, then it will be
so. Perhaps the Citizens would opt for rehabilitation? Doubtful. I
am merely organizing the opportunity for the citizens and adventurers
to do what they see fit. Perhaps they will say as others have,
"The grove and shire are none of our concern." Then so be it. But
I must try my best to see that the people's voices are heard. As for
training the Shire and Grove to fight and defend themselves, that is
a very good idea, and a good next step. But, it will take time, and
some, like those of the grove, may not wish to fight. The main point
is that the slaughtering of the peaceful people must cease immediately.
In response to some of the notes I have seen posted, I will do what I
so foolishly failed to due first, and may Falisvir forgive me for it, but
that is to speak to the Doom Squad and try to reach a compromise with them.
So this portion of the note is to them. I wish to speak with one of you
or all of you. If only one, then it should be one who speaks for the whole.
If nothing is resolved, we will see what the desire of the people is.
My final question is to everyone, does this seem like a reasonable
course of action?

Dear members of Xantheus. I have some news for you all.
Yesterday Saul, Vicks, Norik, Myself and Adrian were approached
by the Prophet Chronos. He told us it was time for the boy to be
introduced to Xantheus, that he was now 17. We all asked who the boy
was, Chronos said it was the boy named Thomas. No one knew who this boy was
So Chronos told us that he is prohecide to be the King of Xantheus.
He said he had been in hiding and the only person who new his location was
himself and Father Anaeas. He told us to go and get him at Old Thalos.
So we ventured to Old Thalos and we greeted the boy in the temple.
He told us how he must go to the island of Djakiar and meet someone
there to determine his destiny. Just then we heard a voice from outside the
temple calling us outside. We readied our weapons and ventured forth outside
We were immediatley attacked by Trolls and Orcs. We defeated them
fairley easily due to our numbers in strength. We kepted walking until we
were met by a being named Dole, we were attacked by his shaman and most of
us had to flee quickly, This shaman was most powerful. He yelled that he would
call his shaman off. And we met and talked with him about
what he was doing here. But sensing danger i went back to Thomas to keep
him safe or at least by time for the others to return if we were attacked.
The others came back, and we discussed what we must do. Thomas insisted
that we take him directly to the island of Djakiar. But Adrian said he could no
t transport us there magically. that we would need to find another way.
Someone suggested Sir Bolkins, and others suggested various things,
like the hole in Forsakens HQ, speaking with the wizard of Di Eamon, things

like that. We finally decided it would be safer to go with Sir Bolkins.
We immediatly transported ourselves out of there for Dole was sending
more trolls and orcs after us. Adrian in despiration brought us to a place
i have never seen before. It was the into the Titan Kingdom. It seems that
the Titans have overthrown the Olympians. But anyways. The King
Arrawyn or something along those lines, yelled for his guards. But
we disposed of him before they arrived. We decided that it was still
not safe here, so we returned to Xantheus. For this place is not far from
our glorious hovel. We then ventured to the Marina. And were met by
Bolkins. We were asking him about transportation to this island, when
suddenly Cireen, Queen of the vampires, appears and wields and utonium
dagger. If i remember right, i belive this is used to slay dragons. I could be
wrong... But anyways, Bolkins protected Thomas by attacking Cireen.
He cut off her finger, she screamed in pain and fled from us. One thing i forgo
t to mention was that when Chronos had finished talked to us Cireen had
appeared and told him enough. Then blasted his head off with a ball of light.
But back to what i was saying. After Cireen was dealt with. Bolkins asked for
Eight million gold for the trip. Adrian payed him. Just then Retribution joined
us for our journey. We enter the portal and were transported to this island.
We were intially seperated, but when we regrouped we set off to find the
doors Chronos had prophecide about. We found them, but there was no
obvious way to enter. Then the volcano on the island began to stir
causing us to fall about and then from the tip of it erupted a huge dragon

There's nothing wrong with the citizens of Xantheus protecting
other towns and villages. But that doesn't mean to hold an
execution. That's not helping the other towns. More people will
come around to kill again, will they not? Instead of avenging
the lesser towns and villages, help them grow stronger, Teach
them magic so they can heal themselves. Teach them to fight so
they can defend themselves. Attempting to execute every murderer
that commits crimes against other places is pointless. It doesn't
_help_ other towns, and it certainly doesn't help Xantheus.

One question, Wedge. Will you, a member of Nonla Arahnala watch
as Mirza sends another being to his death? Wouldn't a person
so dedicated to stopping murder and chaos think of a more
decent way of punishment? Your starting to think more and more
like the disgusting Vampires, Sir Wedge. Maybe you should spend

Thomas had told us earlier that he would seek him to. His name was
Epyranth. He was to determine what kind of age we were to begin.
THe dragon flew around while changing many colors. He finally
settled on black. Thomas seemed slightly distressed. Then Thomas
asked him what was going to happen. The dragon said you know what
this means and what i must do. Thomas asked to go with him.
Thomas then told us that black was the color of the first age. and That
in the first age. Epyranth had destroyed all that lived on the island.
The dragon came down and Thomas went off with him.

So this could mean good things or bad things.
But something to think about here. Fane Vattar is dead.
Dole took his place as the prime evil, so if we had so much trouble
with Fane, we are now dealing with someone much stronger than him.

Cedrick, I have made my decision. I said sides needed to be chosen and

constant threats, both veiled and overt. Now the time has come, and as I
told you I would, old friend, I have made my choice...

This old one will not remain impartial in this conflict, and I must pledge
support to Vicks and Acerbus Ira. As disturbing as your attempted attack
on the lady Yasmine was, it was not half as disturbing to me as your attempt
to weasel out of it and hide from Seph. Perhaps you will take a lesson
from this, that no true friend will follow his compatriot into the darkness.
This war will not be pleasant, nor will dealing with Fane Vattar, but maybe
now you will see that your position is quite precarious. Perhaps Vicks will
be merciful and offer you the chance to make recompense. Perhaps.
Perhaps it is too late.

Adventurers,

Our town was recently visited by the blue dragon Arequatra, a good
friend of mine. She informed us that she had leads to the where-
abouts of 3 dragon relics. These are the relics that scattered across
the land when Izrick defeated. One, a fisherman in Ofcol had found,
another was held by the goblins, but they had recently lost it, and
the third was held by a royal family near Anon. The large number
of adventurers who had gathered split up to seek out these three
relics. The ring was lost in the river, which Valeryan, after a long
and grueling search was able to recover, this was the relic the fisherman
had found. A mirror was held by the royal family near Anon, but
sadly, their daughter was kidnapped by ogres, and sacrificed to a
large red dragon, who was a member of the dark sect. The dragon was
slain and the mirror recovered. The poor girls life could not be
saved. Last, a crown was stolen from the goblins by a thief, who
in turn lost it in a card game to a sh'kura, who in turn was slain
by a dwarf vampire, who in turn was slain by the Xantheus
Adventurers, who recovered the last relic, the crown. Needless
to say it was quit an eventful day.

is peace, not limited war. No fighting during quests is
good. Proposal #3 is unnecessary, as there will be no
fighting. So it boils down to this:

-Acerbus Ira and the Forsaken shall no longer physically
duel one another unless both parties are in complete agreeance.
Once Fane Vattar shows himself, we shall join together to
destroy him.

After Fane is gone, we will see what happens... but I have

praying that I didn't have to remove said nipple from this

Wanting to surprise my friend, I set off in search of this
strange mariner. I had assumed that such a man would be near

Since I had done so much business with this gentleman in the

enchanted with powerful magics. Saul and I went to Zorian for

the Stone Golems to life. In the meantime I will be studying it

protect the city and its people.

With the Forsaken and Acerbus Ira no longer at war, we can focus

Hullo there! I've finally returned from my random wanderings and boy do
I have some stories to tell! Like my most recent adventure! It all began
when I met this very interesting elf while while I was visiting the prison
in Naukral. It's really not a bad place, but I have seen better. Anyway,
while I was playing with the jailer's keys in my cell, I got to talking
with this unhappy looking elf in the cell next to me. Apparently he had
been off adventuring as well and had found something he felt I'd enjoy.
He offered to tell me his story if I gave him the keys I had, so of
course I agreed! As he was sneaking out of the jail I let myself out
of my cell with my trusty lockpick since my elf friend mistakenly forgot
to unlock it. I assumed he wanted to travel in silence since he didn't
look at me or say a word as we snuck out of the city. When I finally
asked him to tell me his story when we were outside the city he seemed
very surprised and annoyed at something. Anyway, after a couple hours
of travel with me he finally relented and told me how he found some
exciting ruins that were very old. My elf friend said there were all
sorts of dangerous and fascinating things there, and when I mentioned
going there he insisted that he'd be okay without me. So off I went!
I found the ruins quite easily and they were indeed VERY exciting. It
was this HUMONGOUS, fancy building with spires and everything! Though
it was a wonderfully beautiful structure, it had apparently seen better
days since it looked as if a couple of marauding giants had used it

the townsfolk with Impunity. Through the brave efforts of Saul, Lord

beasts threatening the town. A manhunt began, to search for those

bring together the power of elemental stone down on the City.

Through fortuitous luck, Pacifica spotted a Drow Scout lurking in the

Pixies. Wedge was in need of wit and sent for Waldo to come to him. The

cellars beneath the Vaynol Arms and wanted some change.

Wedge was, as he often is, helping the downtrodden. A Dryad, Semlina, was
driven from her tree and came to Wedge to help. A group of evil Elves had
taken up residence within the Dryad's tree. The sprite was unable to drive
them out with out the help of the Heart of the Tree. So Wedge searched in
vain for the tree and when he did find it, he could not discern the entrance.
Waldo, who was by this time following behind Wedge used his experiencing in
finding hidden doors ands open it for Wedge. Wedge entered stealthily past
the evils that had fouled the tree and right into the new master's room.
Again he could not find anything out of the ordinary, but Waldo, with his
keen eye found a compartment tucked beneath a loose board. The two unusual
companions then ducked in and begin looking for the Heart of the Tree,
thinking that it had to be in such a well-hidden place. The Knight had

Well...it would appear we have a regular Tower of Torach here.
Such a silly little war.
Both sides claim to not threaten one another. Yet...
They make veiled 'promises' and 'warnings'. In this atmosphere...
Peace cannot reign. Both sides claim to have the good of Xantheus in mind.
Yet neither seems to. Swords need lain aside before sides need be taken.
More things than The Wolf and the Forsaken and even Xantheus are at stake.
And soon sides will need to be chosen.

So let us just play nicely...for soon, tensions will explode and blood

Your arrival caused more of a stir than you may have realised. One

I am sorry I had to move you so quickly, for I would have liked
to speak to you and to my childe. Unfortunately time and danger
pressed far too urgently.
The danger in Djakiar is not where you may be looking, and their

humbly suggest that any such notions not be entertained
further. Instead I pray you seek the good there - for to the north

I did not attack any member of Acerbus Ira until I

a member of Acerbus Ira accept when I was being attacked

not declare war, as you are attempting to do against
my clan. You say your clan has honor, Lord Vicks. Is
your idea of honor waging war against a clan who hasn't
done a thing to your clan? Or wait, you're going to
change your mind of why you're waging war against
Obsidian Circle as soon as you read this. Let me guess,
you're going to say you are now siding with the Vampires.
The same Vampires that you said this about: "Take all
the vampires you want from these walls, for it is doing
us a great service. Just be sure you leave the 'people'
of this town untouched." I only have one question,
honorable one. Why, if Vampires are below you... as

Dear Adventurers,

Today was a very glorious day! Most of you can probably recall
the late Pope Elstin. Who died saving our realm a long time ago.
But today Me, Bryrin, Pope Lord Glaykor and Saul were able to bring him
back! Me, Brynin and Saul were originaly searching for someone to take the
place of Brother Andersen until we could return him from Fanes cluches.
So Saul suggested the Priestess of Ofcol. So we ventured up there and spoke
with her about the matter. She said she could not be able to teach others this
glorious spell. The one known as Sanctuary. So she said we had some options.
1. Free Andersen from Fane Vattar. 2. Have a young cleric train for months
and give up adventuring to forever stay and teach others.
3. Call upon a greater Cleric who would be willing to give up their
adventures and teach.
I immediatly volunteer for the job. But Saul suggested that we seek out
Pope Elstin. We then told the priestess about how Elstin died.
and she said that it was possible for him to be summoned back. But
it could also not be able to happen, depending on where his soul was
she said that we would need to get herbs and wax candles to preform this task.
Bryrnin and I ventured to the Holy Grove and negotiated with the
Hierophant there for some herbs. We promised the Hierophant assistance when the
y requested it. We then met Saul at Jerel's Platform. And Pope Glaykor joined u
s there. We ventured to Elstin's altar and had a ceremony for him. We were
able to bring Elstin back and he now resides in Brother Andersen's home

flame and rock radiated from the mountain - A great Dragon emerged
from the chaos and began circling our position. It's color seemed
to shift as it soared through the sky; after a few moments it's color
settled upon a deep black.

Thomas explained that he had hoped that this dragon, the Great Dragon
Epyranth, would help him rule his kingdom. However, he explained that
at each awakening Epyranth would emerge a different color; Black is
not a good omen, as this is the color Epyranth assumed thousands of
years ago when his actions spawned the fear and hatred of dragons
throughout the continent of Djakiar ... a fear and hatred that remains
to this day.

Thomas was last seen flying off on the back of Epyranth. I hope and

It is true SoN wants not part of your war. But we honor our

will not stand by and watch our friends being attacked. Norik made a
mistake attacking that group of friends. Even though regettable that
one of my members was part of that group, I'm proud of the fact that he
stood by his promise and honored the partnership he had made. Maybe
you should talk to your member about attacking my members when they are
part of a party. Because if the boot was on the other foot and it was one of
your members with one of ours in that type of comradship, you can be sure that
that SoN member would act the same way to the attacking member of the Wolf.

That is always a problem with that lifestyle. As I've been telling Vicks, there

Do you declare that you had no part of this? Or is it what I

was definitely made, and/or was being discussed. Vicks,
it shows much irresponsibility and disgusting arrogance
that you would attack a member of the clan you are
definitely trying to work a cease fire with. That is most
certainly not the way to go about forming an alliance.
I don't think I would be completely unhappy if Forsaken
decides to let you all rot and just leaves the town to its

fighter may claim one item from the fallen adventurer's corpse as a
trophy.

Rule #2: No attacks during quests or other imm-run events.

Rule #3: No teaming up with someone else to fight a character that is
of a lower level than yourself.

resembles the Drow attacked her Den, and took with them a piece
of an inscribed stone. We fanned out, searching the lands, and somehow
managed to locate four of the eight missing pieces.
I myself also managed to gain some interesting information on the
problem at hand. We learned that the pieces, when assembled, formed
a key which guards a mighty demon. I spoke with the Vampire Elder Adiux,
learning that this demon is so powerful and dangerous that even he
fears terribly. The wise elder elf informed me to seek out those who had
once lived with the drow. This end I shall follow further in time. In the
heat of the moment, I went straight to the source.
Although the Drow Priestess was rather uncooperative up untill the time
of her death, she did mention a name. "Jalharluth"
She also mentioned something about a circle of runes.
This end will also be followed up upon.

But you have the goodness in your souls to redeem yourselves
And one day you shall all be as Gods, safe from the touch of thine Enemy.

A group of adventurers set out to the Manape village on Pentir
Island when we received a distressed call from their chief. It
turns out his daughter had been captured by Trolls on a big black
magic boat. We trailed them here to Xantheus, and confronted them
in the inn in the dark southern forest. Needless to say we were
attacked, but we stood our ground and fended them off, protecting
the helpless manape girl. After we secured her, we returned to
Manape village where she was reunited with her father. He rewarded
us quite handsomely and also gave us a peculiar item. It is a
sigil of a clenched fist. It's glow is quite peculiar... blue like
the water, I think I've seen it before, but not sure where, maybe
someone reading this could help. More to the point, no one is

But why, you ask, am I so pleased about this little "Bounty" that has been
placed upon my head? Well, quite simple. The fear I drive into the hearts
of others is intoxicating, however rather inhibiting of my natural bloodlust.
You have just given those others a reason to hunt me. You have just
led them one step closer to their doom.
How very humanitarian of you.
If you think for one second that this act of cowardice will save you, that
somehow by hiding behind all these bodies will be a form of protection,
you shall soon find those bodies little else than corpses. Torn asunder in

as a weapon. Luckly he didn't use them on me while i was in my

Solitare, Yasmine, Gnimelf, and of course myself. Listened to his

a cave-in he needed help rescuing his king offspring. He also told us
that the cave-in was caused by someone else. Who in my drunken state
i couldn't remember. So let that be lesson do not drink.
But Stotriz had another problem he didn't know how to get back to
where he lived thus we took what little information we had from
the fact that he came in the western gate and tried to find his
home. After futher questioning we realized he lived by the great
eastern desert. We defeated the monsters there saved Isra

Upon arival, Jamuraa, Shadowkaun and myself discovered
Orcs slaughtering all manner of life within the clearing.
The orcs would not speak, and were easily taken care of.
The female voice, who I have come to believe was the one

fled upon our involvement.

On our return to Xantheus, we three met to discuss these events,
shortly thereafter interrupted by a ghastly fog searching...
For something.

I am sick of your little 'war' both of you, Vicks and Cedrick. Take this treaty
and shove it up your asses. What is the point when one cannot seem to
grasp the concept of 'peace.' I hear by pull back all my ties with any
clan or group of people. I am through with this all.

I can share what I know on this subject,

I am weakened, thus this shall remain short.
A great blackness descended down upon the city.
A great fog. A great presence.
It was searching for something. Someone.
Of what I know not.
It passed through my form, both of ours being much one in
the same.

This fog may return.
Be on your guard.

Subject: Chronicles
Greetings,

I wish to start writing a book on the history
of the Sh'kura peoples, their humble beginings and
their place in the world today. If you have any
information, no matter how small or large, I will attempt
to find a place for it.

I am especially looking for first-hand accounts dealing
with the Sh'kura Nation and the long-forgotten clan of
Sh'kur, The Obsidian Circle. Other points of interest
is the conflict with Vampires, past and present, and also
of the substance known as Utonium.

Subject: Die?
I will stand by you, Seph. I have dealt with dark elves in the past. It has
never turned out well. The attack of this noble after the discussion, which
slew several and wounded myself, should be a precedent we cannot ignore.
I will destroy them alongside you. We will take arms, but we need not die this
day.

So all citizens of Xantheus, arm yourselves. The day is today.

Subject: Why Xantheus
Xantheus has long been a defender of those who
might not be able to defend themselves. Our neighbors,
the Holy Grove and Shire are definately those under
our protection. This is why the Doom
Squad is part of our concern. The general
consensus seems to wish for a trial.
Once the citizens have been polled, that
decision will be made.

Subject: Thomas and Epyranth
It is my solemn duty to inform you of the death of the great'
Prophet Chronos has been slain by the Vampire Queen, Cireen.
Alas, there was nothing we could do to prevent his death; however,
before he died he revealed the existence of a power great enough
to counter the evil strength of the being known as Fane: a power
which resided in a young man by the name of Thomas. According to
Chronos, this boy will one day take the throne as the King of
Xantheus. He had been under the care of Father Anaeas, and a
select few even knew of his existence. Soon after revealing the
location of Thomas, Cireen appeared from nowhere and struck
Chronos down in a single blow before disappearing into the
shadows.

Adrian, Norik, Shadowkaun, Saul and myself set out for
Thalos in an attempt to reach Thomas and ensure his safety.
Upon reaching Thalos, it was revealed that orcs and trolls had
taken over the city. It was here that we had our first encounter
with the Shaman Dole: we were informed that Dole has assumed
command of the armies of Fane (we had earlier learned that Fane
was "unable to be located" ... we assume he is still alive, but merely
undetectable by standard magics and methods). Nonetheless,
our party battled through the beasts wandering the streets and
eventually reached Thomas.

Subject: Drow
A Drow Noble came to town today looking for the decision we had made
concerning the piece of key which was under our control inside the walls
of Xantheus. A lot of communicating went on between adventurers such as
Wedge, Norik, Vicks, Violence, Jamuraa, Morock, Psychotic, myself, and
others which i cannot recall. After what seems like a stalemate upon both
sides of the conversation, a plan was issued to the Drow. We would allow
about 100 drow mages and priests to enter the town and we'd supply a
refuge, Greyskull, but that offer wasn't looked kindly upon by this Noble.
After a long and pointless conversation, the vote of the people of Xantheus
stayed the same throughout and the Noble became rather annoyed. He headed
to the north to take his frustration out on a poor and loyal guard protecting
the gate. The guard, who will always be honored with valor and courage,
defended to his death the city of Xantheus. After we saw the poor devestation
the Drow could inflict we began the final assault to it's life. After a long an
and grueling battle, Jamuraa came through with the final death blow. A sigh
of relief is shared amongth ALL of Xantheus atleast for the time being. Please,
give much thought to the poor guard who followed his job to the death not
because he had to, but because he chose to. A lot of respect and dignity should
go out to the guards and a job well done indeed. Adventurers...be warned, the
Drow will be back and the Demon has not been eliminated. Until then, we must
unite and continue the quest to save our Home.

Akastron...doing his part.

Subject: Trial
As far as I know, they have done no harm to the citizens of
Xantheus. So why are the people of Xantheus to decide their
fate? Let the people, or what's left of them, of the towns
they committed crimes against hold their own trials. It is
none of Xantheus' concern.

It has recently come to my attention that Norik was the

have your clanmates attempt attacks, only to complain when they
die upon our blades? Where does one so weak find such moxy?
