Recent happenings at Wayside Lodge

Yesterday there were a number of events of consequence at Wayside Lodge, to ensure that the public knows what has occurred I offer this announcement of current events:

A small squad of bandits loyal to the outlaw Lycor appeared at Wayside Lodge. They briefly attempted to feign that they had abandoned the service of the bandit leader and wished to swear fealty to the Lord Regent before they attacked. When dispatched, a number of the bandits did not resurrect and instead permanently died. It is therefore apparent that the bandits loyal to Lycor have taken catastrophic losses as they are beginning to permanently die when defeated. Final victory over these outlaws is at hand.

A large stone arch has been unearthed approximately two miles to the east of Wayside Lodge. This archway is apparently a portal or gate that links Willowdark with a very similar archway in the distant lands of Naringal, beyond the borders of Willowdark. Several dangerous creatures have come through the archway including a fairly powerful troll and several of the particularly vicious Naringal Goblins (significantly meaner and stronger than our domestic pests). We do not yet know how to send beings through the archway, at this time it is a one-way portal from Naringal to Willowdark. Study of the archway indicates that it is not part of the ruins that are found throughout Willowdark and was created by another civilization, which appears to have built a number of these portals throughout much of the continent of Avalon in antiquity as a transportation network that has mostly collapsed over the course of millennia. The creators were apparently Elven in nature as the few markings on the archway were Quentari in nature. At this time the portal is not deactivated, however research is progressing in this field.

Furthermore, we regret to announce the permanent death of Ranger Captain Seth. This senior member of the Rangers of Willowdark was apparently at some point in the relatively recent past transformed into a True (not Infected) Wereboar by the late Warlord Tetherin himself. While in the throes of his lycanthropy he inflicted significant casualties in the Wayside Lodge region on June 27, 609 before he was stopped. Attempts to reverse his lycanthropy were unsuccessful due to the extreme power the transformation had as it came from Tetherin himself, leaving us with no choice as to our final, and very regrettable, course of action. Those that were infected by him were cured of Lycanthropy this day June 28, 609 by myself.

His passing will be mourned.
