Lord Juo'nar has been building up his
troops and making surprise attacks on the populace recently. Groups of Trolls, Lizardmen,
Ratmen, Orcs, and other hideous abominations have been found with orders from Juo'nar to
attack everything from wandering caravans to military outposts.
One of these groups was apparently lying in wait for a caravan or
supply team when they stumbled upon Andre the Gambler, and his entourage of pugilistic
fighters. Andre was robbed and beaten by the trolls, and his entourage was all but
destroyed. "None of my boys will ever be able to step into the ring again."
Andre had hopes that some of his better fighters could hold off the
trolls while he made a quick escape with their gold and possessions, which he claims are
worth upward of 10,000 gold. "The gloves, the trunks, the gold I keep for the
gambling, the ring itself,....It's just too much to think about right now." Andre
said in a public statement.
He does promise to return to the dungeon entrance, where he has had
two good showings so far. He hopes to recruit some new fighters over the next week and
return to the ring next Saturday.
