all who attended the ill-fated meeting between the High Council and
Gelidum remember this majestic frost wyrm. Myllfalydd has been seen
"talking" with Kyry in the depths of the Glacian dungeon. His
appearances grow more frequent with each passing day. He has also been
spotted discussing the ranger Kyry with representatives of the Mage Tower
and parties of adventurers travelling to the frozen lands in search of
Outside the Mage Tower this morning (as we hid nearby waiting for a
possible attack, given the frequency lately) a little boy with nearly snow
white skin appeared. After sliding this message under the door (which we
carefully transcribed a copy of before the Mage Tower Representatives got
a hold of it), he turned into a white wyrm and flew away. It reads:
The time has come. The Gelidum has learned rumors of Gavin being held in
Trinsic prison. If this is indeed true, fetch him hence and bring him to
our kingdom this coming Thursday evening. Otherwise we shall dismiss this
as mere prattle and the Tower, along with the rest, shall pay accordingly.
A refreshment to see that not all warm ones are unreasonable such as thy
precious High Council. A meeting time will be delivered shortly. The
Gelidum is not unreasonable, after all, we have no more use for this
ranger and wish her away from our kingdom.
While the Mage Tower by their reports, have cast their lot in with the
wyrms, reports have surfaced the frost trolls led by Br'Kagg have allied
with the surface trolls. The details to the nature of this alliance have
not yet surfaced, though many speculate the areas of Minoc and Vesper are
in an increased area of danger.
Since the recent attack on Minoc reported in last issue:
No sign of the ice fiend leader within the Gelidum has been reported.
- Trolls were spotted outside Skara Brae near the moongate very late
one evening last week.
- Trolls have attacked the Moonglow Mage Tower on numerous occasions.
No pattern has been established.
- Trolls appear with regularity in Magincia, oddly coinciding with
High Council meetings every other Monday (unlike previously reported,
these meetings have not moved)
- Lord Ironside of Minoc, a half-troll, has been arrested in relation
to these troll uprising activities upon the charge of Treason against
the realm. No trial date has been announced.
- On Tuesday, surface trolls and corpsers invaded the western borders
of Papua in a bloody battle that left many troll corpses littering the
lush jungle area.
The situation as can best be summarized at the moment:
Gavin, the alchemist accused of freezing the ranger Kyry, is magicially
bound inside Trinsic Prison, despite reports of his escape or delivery to
the Gelidum. No comment from the High Court has been issued. Quipped Anne
the guard, "Of course he's here! Ye don't think we're watching
nothin' under that blanket there, aye? Rumors are just that, rumors. Nay
ye cannae see him, he's asleep."
Gilkemgain is researching ingredients for the curing of Kyry. Professor
Temesa of the Lycaeum left a note outside his dwelling three days ago
stating she had "made definite progress in research regarding
mushrooms" and requested a meeting to discuss the matter this coming
Tuesday. A group was spotted outside of Yew last week claiming to be
looking for faerie rings of mushrooms. Several expressed frustration at
not having enough to aid them with the cure, and made note to meet again
soon. Any groups wishing to aid in the effort of gathering further cure
ingredients should leave word at either the Lycaeum, or the ice lab
itself. The lab is located directly south of Encyclopaedia Magicka.
