A group of mercenaries from around the Empire and beyond, though not from Eartholme itself, were hired by Baron Kahn with the promise of “a little extra” for their help. Clearly the Eartholme treasury has recovered enough from Shadros del “bad” Dets’ day to allow the current Governor to dip his hand in it.

In an interview Beauchalain, a Priest from the fine City of Deci, told of, after a morning of killing trolls and smashing golems, going to close a portal and defeat the “Ruby King”. (Could this be linked to the gem that Shade promised so many different factions back in the day?)

Aiding in the quest were Artemis Flashblade (obviously after the gem for himself), Harley Skinner (a fine exponent of the feast!), a Dwarf called Stoneheart (so many are nowadays), an Angelic Dwarf called Corrie (very competent and sensible – though his wisdom was often ignored by the group), a couple of followers of the Lady of the Stars (one being Trellis who throws a mean spirit bolt - sending his targets reeling back… only to be struck again!), a Princess from Amles (trying to show the Eartholmers that “Blue is best”), her companion, a blademaster of the Mantis Clan, acting as “Yojimbo” in an unofficial capacity, and page Trotter, a Kallah from Thimon.

Acting as the tip of the spear was one of the 101st, Barry, who had a number of opinions on his “allies”. The barbarian, (possibly an Orc? He was very dirty and sniffed everyone) he stated was “OK sometimes” but poured scorn on Stoneheart as “An idiot” having “No concept of Warfare” who regularly “Ran into fights rashly” and “falling to his wounds having had little effect.”

By far the most potent of the group was Corvus, Warden of Armesslas – a potent Diviner and Caller of Lightning. Without his insights, gathered by speaking to “The Raven”, little would have been achieved. Apart from the destruction of his enemies in flashes of electrical destruction he also used the powers of the earth to perform potent healing. Page Trotter told me “That was the best healing I’ve had all day!”

Corvus divulged to me that “Figit just shut the door on the problem and hoped it would go away. The whole problem with these creatures, and the Brown Mana Dragon, was quite literally, buried to be forgotten about. Clearly it should have been dealt with at the time.”

It was a tense moment when Corvus called for silence to explain the rites that needed to be destroyed and the dangers that would follow…. Like the portal to escape through closing rapidly! With that they departed.

Readers will be pleased to know that they succeeded in defeating the Ruby King though I would advise staying away from Eartholme for a time.
