A massive army of the Undead, led by Juo'nar, came
very close to capturing the city of Trinsic yesterday. However, an even
larger army of Undead has been sighted and is expected to arrive there
sometime today. Leaders and volunteer defenders alike think it unlikely
that Trinsic will survive a renewed assault by the monstrous invaders.
Yesterday's assault, which ran throughout the day and into the nighttime
hours, was finally stemmed by the last minute arrival of several hundred
volunteer warriors. Juo'nar and his surviving forces retreated in good
order towards the second army marching on the city.
The army struck repeatedly at the walls and at times appeared to have
the upper hand at several of the city's gates. Only desperate fighting
by the outnumbered citizens and volunteer defenders prevented the attackers
from blockading the gates and trapping the them inside the city.
A confidential source inside Trinsic's ad-hoc military command said
the mood was grim. "We're barely hanging on here," said the source. "The
leaders know that. There's talk of cutting our losses and evacuating before
this next, larger army arrives. No one believes we can go through that
kind of assault a second time."
With no large body of Lord British's forces near enough to the city
to reinforce it, it appears the city is doomed. Residents have been urged
It is also rumored that Lord British has commanded Court Mage Nystul
to create a spell to re-route first time adventurers trying to gate to
Trinsic to another city, in an attempt to save the lives of the fledgling
warriors and mages.
