The evil Zando the Mage stood, seemingly unaware of the crowd
quickly surrounding him in the swamps outside Trinsic. At first wary, Zando became
increasingly hostile in his demands for them to leave him be. Many refused, and some ran,
only to return with reinforcements. With chants and waves of his hands, he summoned a
multitude of slimes to do his evil bidding. These were no ordinary slime as the swamp
filled with a sickly green glow, with many falling ill to the fields of poisonous light.
The battle was close, as many failed, however eventually the heroes did prevail and make
safe our lands once again. Specualtion abounds, however. What was he doing there and what
would have happened if he were able to escape? Further inquiries were made upon the nature
of Zando's motives, yet he is nowhere to be found, nor are any of his works.
The green pentagram was taken in for further examination.
