7th of Nuzyael, 720 TR
Cool and cloudy with winds from the South West. Rain showers throughout the day with heavy rains with winds gusting over 55 mph beginning in the afternoon and continuing into the night.
- The Keep is quiet after the gathered nobles leave for their own manors early on the morning of the 7th.
- Armolarin Straken of Ornelt doubles the guards on duty on the Ostle Commons in order to intimidate the circus folk.
- Word arrives from Hutop regarding the call for help on the 3rd. It seems a cavern outside of Hutop became the residence of a group of Nolah (Harnic Trolls), also called Dank Stalkers. This is unusual as the Nolah is generally a solitary creature. Hutop has a reputation as being a haven for roustabouts, ne’er-do-wells, and a rough crowd of miners and mercenaries. According to the story being told at Jedes Keep, a small group of mercenaries had tracked the Nolah to the cavern after a young girl was reportedly lured to the cavern by the creature(s). Only one of the men made it back to Hutop alive to tell of what his un-lucky group had found. Sir Kodar Maradyne, unsure of how many he was dealing with asked for help from Jedes Keep. His forces, along with the Light Horse and Light Infantry from Jedes Keep are camped in the fields just below the cavern and will attempt to smoke the creatures out in order to confront them in the open.
