A large group of monsters were sighted in the forests
near the popular mining caves. It seems they were attracted
primarily to one dedicated miner named Ramon. As a hobby,
he collected various gems and kept them inside his forge near
the mountain. Somehow, news of his stash had spread to this
evil group of monsters which was headed by an Ogre Lord named
Gufzen. He was very interested in the gems and decided to
surround his home yesterday in an attempt to getting them.
Ramon searched for help and assistance in Britain where he
managed to round up a large group of brave fighters and mages
to help defend his home from the attacks.
Sure enough, scores of orcs and ogres gathered around the house when
Ramon returned with the fighters. A horrible battle ensued and in the midst of the
bloodbath, Gufzen himself showed up and took down many a brave fighter. However, with the
quick thinking and sheer power of the human force, he was destroyed along with his evil
monster minions. I tried to speak with Ramon later that eve and managed to get some quick
comments as he packed his things in a hurry.
Im going elsewhere to mine! These attacks are
ridiculous! Had I known the mountains were so dangerous, I would have became a fighter
