Warning at the Crossroads

  • Shesarai came into the Commons and reported finding a warning message scrawled in big red letters at the Nars Crossroads. It said "Talona is Threatened." Three dead bodies on stakes were behind it. A flock of magpies, at least five, were flapping around in the woods to the west.

  • There have been no more winged horrors or blood-written signs at the Crossroads in a few weeks. But there have been an unusually large number of spiders coming out of the wooded pass just to the west. Shesarai was overheard telling people in Peltarch that she found several dozen of them one recent night and had a chore fighting them all in that narrow space between the trees.
