Cotton fell in love with a vampire Yurnana. Arwen and the vampire Yurnana, turned out were the one and the same. Cotton thought she was under a trance or spell from Yurnana. Grag, Uthger, Ka’ell and Theoan decided to kill the vampire. After Grag gave the vampire Yurnana the final death blow. Uthger turned and attacked the group using god like powers and summoning an undead demon. Uthger killed them all except for Ka’ell, in a very close epic battle. Ka’ell escaped using invisibility and a key from Grags corpse. Uthger fled shortly after. It turns out when Grag killed Yurnana, it broke the curse of the vampire that had taken over Arwen. Cotton and Arwen have apparently been spending a lot of time togeather ever since.
Norwick under siege
A goblin Shaman toyed around with the citizens of Norwick. Casting many powerfull spells. Using a hit and run strategy. Coming in for several passes at the south gate, unleashing his magic and running off again. The Shaman even had the boldness to coming right up to the gate. When the lone Shaman noticed the gate was barred from the inside. The little buggar even tried to bash the gate down. Many were hurt in the may lay, but no fatalities were reported.
Billbow of Norwick is offering his services to those who need it. From protection in the woods to whatever help one may need in their quest.
Maythor and the water creature
Maythor was attacked by a creature of water in the Rawlinswood. Maythor’s battle wasn’t going so well. Thankfully a ranger by the name of Bow. Ran into town to inlist help. The few gathered at the fire, ran into the rawlins to fight. At first sight of the creature, the hin Theon called out. “Stand back, I’m hammering it.” Theon, and Bel’mar, threw out plenty of magic at the water creature. Cel also played a vital role fighting the creature with all his might. The battle lasted some time, as the fighters constantly cicled around the creature. No one could melee the water demon for very long before having to break off. While magic missles streaked through the sky inot the mass of floating water. The creature was eventually slain and no fatalities were reported.
Deacon and the Orc
Alright folks, what follows is the story of Captain Deacon Sterr and his heroic victory over one a the leaders of the orcs, a great orc destroyer, strong and hardened in battle. Now you might ask, how do I know a such a story? Well I was there of course, watching from the shadows not a few hundred paces away. Let this be a lesson to all of you. Never go around thinking you're completely alone, because you're probably mistaken…
Anyway, it all happened just a few days ago outside the North Gates of Norwick. I was out creeping around, and in comes Gears through the gates, where he meets up with Captain Sterr and tells him to come outside since something bad was happening. Just what had happened prior to this I don't know. You'd have to ask Gears or Deacon about that... Following along just a bit behind, I came outside and saw Deacon standing toe to toe with the big ol' orc. From where I was standing, the beast looked to have some magical enhancements around him, making him an even fiercer competitor. Now of course, the average man would be scared half to death by this beast, and rightly so, but if ol' Deacon were, it showed very little in his eyes.
Before I knew it, Mingal was adding aid in the form of magics to Captain Sterr. Then Deac lunged at the orc, engaging him in battle. At first they seemed evenly matched, this monstrosity of an orc and Deacon Sterr, dodging each others' blows like seasoned warriors. After four swings though, the tide turned in favor of Deacon, and he landed six blows in a row with his blade, two of which would've crippled a normal orc or man for sure. In desperation, and with his final breaths, that terrible beast struck back, connecting with Deacon's arm with a powerful blow, sending his blade flying through the air. How that blow didn't cripple Captain Sterr I'll never know. Maybe Mingal's magic had something to do with it; maybe it's just testament to the resiliency of ol' Deac. But when his sword got knocked from his hands, Deacon dropped his shield in a flash, and drawing forth his greatsword, gutted the beast with one blow, ending its miserable life.
What a terrible mess that road was, with the giant orc laying dead on the ground, with a triumphant Deacon standing over its body! You should've seen the looks of amazement on the faces of those witnessing the battle! You could tell no one gave him a fighting chance against that orc, but ol' Deacon proved them wrong. You could tell even from the shadows in the distance that Captain Sterr was beaming with pride inside. And rightly so I might add! How many of you have ever taken on such a beast, and lived to fight another day?
So if you see Captain Sterr around, be sure to buy him an ale and hear the story for yourself, straight from him. And hell, congratulate him on such an incredible feat! There aren't many men who can take down one of the leaders of the orcs, a beast known for its strength in battle, single handedly.

Grag and his evil cousins
One cold afternoon in jiyyd. Grag, Theoan and katlina. Were talking in Jiyyd, when a man runs up screeming. “General we need your help the orcs have killed two and are on the road outside of Jiyyd". The general changed and began to run to the scene killing about fifty evil cousins wooing the crowds of common folks watching. After grag showed his strentgh the orcs wished to talk to him. A big orc named Thunderstick came to talk to Grag. They spoke about the current happeneing and drank together. The orcs seem to want the pass for themselves, but said if nobody attacks them they will not attack back. Then Thunderstick asked if he could have any of the women present to take home. Grag said no they are all his wenches. Thunderstick laughed and said Grag is strong and greedy. Then Thunderstick asked if he could eat Theoan. Grag told him he could try but be carefull he turns into a dragon and breathes fire. That seemed to work. They went their seperate ways with the conflict solved for now…....
