A Human woman was seen in Hobbiton wandering through the residents houses. It was later discovered that she was poisoning the locals food and drink supplies. The woman was cornered and defeated by a group of travelling halflings. Fortunately the poison was discovered in time to prevent any fatalities. The group of travelling halflings are, as yet, un-named. The Human woman was later confirmed to be an escaped convict by the name of Alyss Morgan, wanted for numerous murders and incidents involving poison.

A man has gone missing from Annakol City. A known poacher, he was last seen entering Annakol Forest with his usual traps. His wife and daughter are said to be very worried.

Locals claim that he was attacked by Mousey Brown, but the authorities know she is a myth and does not exist. Investigations are proving to be fruitless.

Several Shire women were attacked by what was described as an oily, fat, and smelly halfling. The man wore grey clothing with a hood that completely covered his face. The attacks occured in the the vicinity of the Dancing Cat Inn.

The destruction of that old inn in the Shire has started. Area residents complained that it might fall down and that children were playing near it. The fact that Ivy Tanglefoot and Bill Willowwood were caught squeezing into it through some rotton timbers has nothing to do with the destruction of the building.

Clear up of the area will continue -- but there are no future plans for the site.

Ivy and Bill's sudden wedding has been announced -- a food festival has also been announced. The food festival is associated with a new halfling god know as St. Marcus, all the Shire is invited.

Three people are wanted in connection with an assault on two officers of the law, plotting to commit murder, theft and attempted murder.

The first man goes by the name of Daigoro and carries a small child.
The second male is elven with shocking white hair and uses his fists to attack. He gave the name 'White Mist' but this is believed to be a false name.
The third, a female, has little known about her and only a vague and varying description.

There is a reward for the capture of, or information leading to the capture of, any or all three of these dangerous fugitives. They should be considered deadly and caution is advised.

The Raging Bull Tavern was beset by a brash of pranks and a robbery. Someone peppered the ale and poured salt into the chicken soup. Proprieter Bull Goodale suspects the owner of The Finieous Fingers Inn of hiring the prankster and perpetrating the burglary

A talking cow was seen in the Raging Boar Inn. She reportedly called herself by the name of Posy Goodbody and was looking for a halfling known as Basil Bond.

The very first 'Shire' food festival is to be held this week. Locals are enthusiastic and have started talk of an arm-wrestling championship!?! Apparantly there will be a local band playing and the tavern will be donating one of their finest kegs of home-made brew as a prize in a raffle.

Skeptics say it is doomed to failure.

A man was shot in the back and left for dead in the forest today.
Morris Stubbs, an unemployed 23 year old from Annakol, crawled from the forest and recieved assistance from a passing druid. Morris claimed to be 'doing nothing' and was said to be in shock. The unseen attacker is now believed to be involved in the disappearance of a local man and the destruction of local hunters traps.

Citizens in Annakol reported a half-orc smashing doors in the city the other day. Guards were dispatched. The suspect insisted that the guard should look for a "bug lady" and put her under arrest. Said, half-orc was arrested for destroying property and creating a nuisance. He later escaped.

Today, Baron Talanque issued a warrant for the half-orc's arrest. The half-orc answers to the name of Grog. He is considered armed and dangerous.

The Great Halfling God Saint Marcus has been seen in Annakolia, actually SEEN!

His Gospel is spreading like wildfire, the deeds of Marcus are legendary and the 'Tale of the Great Pl..!' and the saving of Halfling Heaven rank amongst the greatest epic deeds ever told.

A Temple is to be raised to Saint Marcus in the Shire, another is to rise in Port City itself and any an all who contribute or subscribe to thier construction shall be blesssed for eternity under the 'Pin of Marcus' and be saved.

And the more a 'Worthy' contributes the higher will they be held in the esteem of Saint Marcus!

Baron Talanque's herald reported that Grog the Half-orc was apprehended and brought to trial. Grog's conviction for attempted murder, mayhem, and 300 counts of property destruction required the half-orc to pay 300,000 GP in fines and expenses. The Baron graciously offered to allow Grog to do supervised work to pay off his debt. Grog will be housed in the prison and released each day to clean the city sewers and collecting garbage for 5 GP per day.

Baron Talanque commanded his advisors to mount an investigation into prison security and magic. A terrible mishap occurred when the Annakol guard marked a prisoner with a magic dart for transport to his prison cell. The prison wizard reports that the prisoner never made it to his cell, but wasn't transported to the hall. The prisoner escaped at large. He is described as tall, green, and has been known to wear frilly dresses.

Armed and Dangerous ~ Do Not Approach

Wanted for Murder at The Dancing Cat Inn

One Perry Twigbottle has occupied the Dancing Cat Inn (Lowland Sire) taking all patrons hostage - Nearby residents report hearing a woman pleading for her life followed by a blood chilling scream.

Mr Twigbottle has not left the building, nor yet made any demand, and even now the sound of conflict and spell casting can be discerned from within.

Port City is a buzz with talk of the return of the artifact, Tyrís Justice to the Temple of Tyr. The fist-shaped purple crystal had been on loan to the Temple of Tyr in Annakol. Temple High Priest Mallory praised Paladin Burk and his companions for their brave and honorable efforts.

Followers watched in awe as Mallory placed the crystal on the altar. Suddenly, a great light descended from above and the building shook. The Fist was gone. Mallory reassured everyone that Tyrís Justice was safe with the god, Tyr himself.

In Port City there was vicious attack in the half-orc quarter. Clerics were dispatched to attend the dead and wounded. King Tarrach, himself, went to survey the scene of the disaster. It is rumored that members of a gang or religious cult may be responsible.

Bongo Thiddlestruck is looking for some very shiny gems.
He offers 5000 gold crowns or a pecial item to be negoitated for one more of these gems. One is said to be in a cave in the deep desert in a valley north of the southern Bain mountains. One was also rumored to be in the posession of a drow named Mara.

Find Bongo at the Feisty Chicken Inn.

AMENDED: Bongo has not been seen of late, he disappeared abruptly.

Proclaimed and posted throughout the land:
Unto the lords, ladies, and populace of the sovereign Kingdom of Annakolia and the allied Baronies of Annakol, Zenoris Tower, as well as boroughs, hamlets and towns, Their Royal Majesties Tarrach and Fina send greetings:

Whereas the reports of giants and demons appearing in cities and villages, alarms and disturbs the peaceful commerce of Our Realm. Our advisors inform us that said apparitions might be the pranks of sorcerers and wizards. We cannot be certain of this. Thus it is with due consideration, that We send additional troops to reassure and protect our people. As always, our commanders are instructed to shoot and kill on sight any and all giants or demons. No questions asked.

Many of you, our fine and brave people suffered at the hands of giantkind in the Last Great War. Your sacrifices have not gone unnoticed. Be assured that We, Tarrach and Fina, will protect our people and land by Our hands and swords, if need be.
By Our Hands,

HRM Fina ingen Aeda, Queen of Annakolia

HRM Tarrach Alfson, King of Annakolia

The Great Seal of State
Vert, on chevronels or, a sanguine dragon, rampant.

A disgruntled customer (an old man) was seen beating on the back door to the book collector's shop in Port City today demanding something. He was babbling too incoherently for anyone to make sense of him. Most people are just staying away and hoping he'll just tire himself out and go have lunch somewhere. The owners of the shop could not be reached for comment.

PostPosted: Sat Oct 09, 2004 8:26 am    Post subject: Town guardsmen goes insane. Begin attacking innocents. Reply with quote

[Excerpt from a local newspaper]

Thomas Gerald and Robert Key, two guards in the town of Bree, went insane today. Thomas attacked an innocent child and set his dog on a poor old Maggie -- whom we all know is a little eccentric certainly due to a spell gone bad in her earlier days, but, not dangerously so. The other, Robert Key, was seen attacking the miller. Through the assistance of an outsider (who wishes to remain anonymous) the innocent townsfolk beat back the maddened guards. Once detained, both guards claimed that there were demons behind the people in question. When asked, the outsider -- who claimed to have seen everything from the start -- informed us that, while it is possible for a demon to hide itself within people -- even to use them for it's own purposes, it is very unlikely that two guards would possess the quite rare abilities to see such a demon. He also insisted rather pasionately that he would have seen such a thing had it been there. Both guards are currently sitting in seperate cells, awaiting their sentence. While the mediator has not officially spoken on the matter, Thorvald, the executioner, has been spotted gleefully rushing to the blacksmith to have his blade honed to a fine edge. He declined to comment on the matter, but was attempting to split a hair on the edge of the blade (the things this reporter must go through!) as we spoke to him. Needless to say, the town is in rather an uproar right now and the guards will be busy watching the cells for a few days, so lock your doors and try to make the children stay in some of the time. These are indeed trying times.

With the Shire Temple of Saint Marcus (funded by private donations and an un-named mystery benefactor) nearing completion Misstress Trader of the Dancing Cat Inn and chief administrator of the Temple Fund was reduced to tears earlier today when substantial funds (undisclosed but sources indicate in excess of a quarter of a million Gold Annakol) were made available by a black leather clad halfling known as 'Bond' - the funds will ensure the temple is fully appointed and are further earmarked for the foundation of the 'Hospice and Orphanage of Saints Marcus and Basil ~ Annakol City'.

According to the cook at the Raging Boar Inn, the new kitchen boy, Patch is working out nicely. She says Patch works harder than most. Cook has nothing but praise for Aldarin, the elf gentleman who sponsered the boy.

An item on the Annakol Herald's Proclaimations:
Hundreds of live crabs set the Baron Talanque's household in an uproar. Reputed to be crawling everywhere, the crabs pinched and jabbed at guards and family members. A group of adventurers rounded up the crustaceans and delivered the crabs to their intended destination, the Raging Boar Inn & Tavern. Baron Talanque proved so appreciative that he gave the crab wranglers a small token of appreciation.

Strange glowing fires were seen near the Fiesty Chicken shortly after the sun burned brightly in the middle of the night.

A being glowing brightly was destroyed by Jania of Mielikki after it killed several cows.

Work has begun in earnest on renovation of the former 'Cloister Building and Gardens' in the north western quadrant of Annakol City; the site will be transformed over the coming months to become a long sought after Hospice and Orphanage for the people of Annakol and it's environs.

The Annakol City Guard has set up a temporary guard post in the vicinity to discourage idle 'sightseers' from accessing the site while dangerous construction work is undertaken to ensure the safety of the Citizens of Annakol.

The Hospice and Orphanage development has been entirely funded by private (and some notable pulic) donations to the 'Temple and Orphanage Appeal' fund administrated through the recently founded 'Temple of Saint Marcus in the Shire'.

In other developments the 'Annakol Studio' of 'House of Elatar' has pledged support to the venture and will be providing uniforms, clothing and other accoutrements to establishment including, is has been revealed, numerous toys and furnishings to a 'Pleasure House' for the children.

A jubilant crowd filled the Dancing Cat Inn the other evening. "Drinks on the House!" Proclaimed Rose Trader, proprieter and patron of the new Temple of Marcus. The celebration centered around the shy and retiring housekeeper Miss Dhalia Greenmeadow.

Mistress Trader reported that an amazing loaf of bread with a bread knife stuck in it had appeared one morning on the altar in the Temple of St. Marcus. Despite serveral days passing, the bread stayed fresh as though it had just come from an oven. Many tried and failed to pull the knife from the loaf. That very evening, in the presence of Mistress Trader and one Mister Basildon Bond, Miss Greenmeadow had succeeded where all others had failed. In all innocence, she pulled the glowing bread knife from the apparently holy loaf. Dhalia had succeeded where all others had failed. With glistening eyes and a wistful smile, Mistress Trader described how Marcus, himself, appeared before the altar and pronounced Greenmeadow his chosen priestess for the new temple. Mistress Trader said that Miss Greenmeadow was somewhat stunned by the incident. Greenmeadow said to reporters, "I'm still not sure what happened."

Trader announced that in a few weeks a big celebration is planned for the blessing and official opening of the temple.

Marcus Bless You One and All!"
