War Mage Gathering–a Night of Disaster
(Crossing, Zoluren: 156 Shorka 358)
A quiet Elothean strides in, eager to share some news with Baresh.
"I’m sure you’ve heard of the happenings at the War Mage Gathering by now, quite a tragedy. The day was going fine, save for the occasional obnoxious member of our guild. Contests held much excitement and a cheerful energy lingered about the atmosphere."
He releases a slow sigh, holding a bit of emotion behind it.
"At the party held after, it started off very unorganized. A number of gifts were distributed to guild members, but this apparently didn’t satisfy most. The spellbook merchant that was said to arrive…never did. Rumors held stories of the Gorbesh capturing the merchant, and ridiculous tales of the like. It turned out, the merchant WAS killed, by a theif, or so I heard from a Jadewater Mentor. To settle some minds, I was told that the spellbooks promised would be available once the wares were found."
With little more than a brief smile and farewell, he rises and departs.
