Reports are coming in from numerous farms across the western heartlands, source of food for much of the Empire. Fields of crops have been devastated and nobody can remember the details of how, or what happened.

Apparently everyone spoken with recalls the same strange droning noise, and then being overcome by an unnatural drowsiness. When they awoke several hours had passed, and their entire harvest was gone.

Considerable tracts of farmland have been devastated, the grain entirely consumed or stolen, and even worse a toxic black residue was left coating the fields, rendering them not only infertile but poisonous.

The plague of attacks devastating the farmlands of the Empire continues unabated. What was a source of concern, an oddity with no explanation, is slowly gaining in severity and spreading across the Empire. The same drowsiness afflicts all in the immediate locale, and when awakened the farmers find their crops gone and the land ruined by an unnatural and highly poisonous black residue that seems soaked into the very soil.

Witnesses have now been found, though they always only saw the events unfold at a distance, and usually at night. But they describe what seemed to be a black cloud that obscured the sky above, descending at speed whilst emitting an eerie droning "song". The attack would usually last less than an hour, and seemed to cause no harm to anything other than the crops and fields. But these are universally left devastated by the time the cloud once more rises into the sky and flies away.

A significant portion of the Western Heartlands have experienced these attacks now, and reports of isolated attacks on prominent farming communities across the rest of the Empire are starting to filter in...
