Today as I left the city of Trinsic, headed to Britain to peddle my
wares, I saw a man running back towards the city, yelling about a harpy attack! Curious, I
cautiously made my way up the road. Soon I came upon a grand melee a dozen warriors
doing battle with no fewer than twice as many harpies! Lightning crackled through the air

Long before the battle was done, I returned to Trinsic and spoke with
one of the town criers. He informed me that the harpies had desended from the mountains.
The reasons behind the invasion were unknown. Perhaps it was a raid for food. Perhaps they
intended to attempt to take the city itself, though certainly none of them made it that

them to bloodshed. In any case, the harpies were slain. I, personally, would like to thank
everyone who did battle with them, making the roads safe to travel once again.
