69 Skeletons attack a pair of adventurers at the crossroads between Mirith and its portal. Further investigation reveals an unmarked grave in the rocks to the northeast, guarded by more skeletons, a bone mage, and a skeleton archer. The archer carried a Short Bow of Power, and the mage guarded a Silver Glaive. The adventurers destroy the grave, and inform Vilohin. Vilohin News Flash! (1st post)
~76 Evroulf McTyr, who was at some point appointed Commander of Marali to replace the late Nyatha Vaup, announces that he will be restoring the traditional hierarchy of the city by selecting a second Commander to lead the city with him. Captains Octar and Charonia are involved in the decision-making process somehow. Evroulf McTyr News Flash! (1st post)
~77 The Black Hand druid Fyod is spotted at the Mirith crossroads with two gapers in tow. He claims to be looking for a thief in red, with a Gohoran accent and a lot of chocolate (this is later revealed to be Lushe Satel). Fyod News Flash! (1st post)
~78 A heavily-guarded Black Hand hideout is spotted in one of the Bear Dens. N/A News Flash! (1st post)
82 An entire adventuring troupe is slaughtered by the Black Hand forces inside the Bear Den. The adventurers also reported meeting a drunken stranger that offered assistance and asked for more rum. Stranger News Flash! (1st post)
~88 Another fort full of brigands and gapers is found just outside Port Gast. A note is found inside, reading "All eyes on him, he is coming -F" (presumably Fyod). There is also a chest containing a Rusty Sextant, which eventually comes into the possession of the Marali Vanguard. Just south of the brigand fort, a small abandoned campsite is discovered. N/A News Flash! (1st post)
~89 Another fort with brigands, gapers, and bracken is found near Andris Bridge. Adventurers that come to clear the cave are assisted by a gray wolf and a snarky pixie. Another note from Fyod is found, saying that the "thief" (Lushe Satel) hadn't gone far. The adventurers find another abandoned campsite nearby. N/A News Flash! (1st post)
~95? Lushe Satel is found (in Andris?). He wishes to speak to the senators and beg their protection from the Black Hand druid, Fyod. He says he is a chocolatier, and that he made some trade with a penniless child who had some papers and a ring. Lushe traded some of his chocolate for those items, and then sold the papers to Father Evaristos of Brigobaen. The papers turned out to be the new Spirit Animal spell. Lushe kept the ring (the type of the ring is currently unreported).

Lushe then takes a bed in the lower levels of the Andris castle, but not before imploring Shadran Mathas to go inform the senators of his arrival. Lushe also asks that his family name be left out at first. Shadran then goes to Brigobaen, and finds Evaristos with the help of Father Johah. Evaristos reveals that the spell had been devised by Denreth of the Black Hand, but Brigobaen sent copies of the papers to every town and city so that any druid could learn it.

137 Two large forces of Black Hand brigands and gapers attack Andris from both gates, and take control of the portal. During the battle, Fyod speaks to one of the fallen, instructing them to carry a message to the senators: "If Andris shelters the Satel thief, Denreth's revenge will be dire." Then, Fyod speaks to one of his underlings about some unknown wizard. They then make plans to lure Lushe out of the city – they realize that they can probably just walk inside, as the Blue Moon Festival is underway.

The invasion is repelled, and some dragon scales are found in a chest. Senator Grantham rewards the city's defenders, and announces the upcoming elections. There are two candidates: a miner named Jan Varouf, and Uberh. Grantham also hints that the city has Lushe under their protection, and that they are interrogating him.

~197 A group of mercenaries take over the Mercenary Cave, but it turns out they were just there to divert attention from Andris. A note in the cave reads, "You will be well paid. Keep Marali occupied, they must not help Andris." Adventurers hasten to Andris and stop brigands from building a fort. There, another note is found, reading, "Prepare a fort here. Time your attack for the end of the moon." The brigands seemed to be extremely loyal, with one of their number choosing to drink poison instead of talking. Meanwhile, behind closed doors, rumors begin to spread that King N'eroth has returned to Mirith. Armsman Nial reports all of these events in a letter to Commander McTyr.

248 A camp of brigands are taken down near the Red Battalion. Afterwards, a Mirith Scout appears and begins to mention a rumor regarding King N'eroth, but he cuts himself short before revealing anything. The adventurers are then ambushed by privateers, who had a hefty supply cache, and who had constructed a makeshift bridge over the straits. It is possible that they were working with the brigands. The news is reported the guardsmen of Andris. Mirith Scout Elections in Andris (3rd post)

The potion faulty and exploded, and the trader admits that he'd lost the recipe to a band of brigands blocking the road near Foehan. The partygoers move to Foehan and find it completely overrun by a large force of brigands. They are led by a mage claiming to have sovereignty over the land.

~54 Brigand encampment found on the northern Marali coastline, accompanied by giants and trolls. Three small moon fragments were found inside. N/A News Flash! (4th post)
56-58 Brigand encampment found near Red Battalion – they had angered a local flock of pixies. An unknown black magician with black robes and a purple hat then meets the group, seeking a lot of information about the Andris elections and the chocolate-making thief (Lushe Satel). The group withholds any sensitive information on the whole affair, but they agree to deliver the wizard's message to the Senate, asking for information on the thief, and in particular what was stolen. He instructs them to leave a note for him at the house of the cannibal. The group goes to deliver the message to Grantham, but are waylaid by bone mages summoned by the wizard – one of them wears a gray robe.

In Andris, Grantham asks that the group leave the wizard a note saying only that the thief is a chocolatier and a Satel, but nothing about the stolen items. The deed is done, and a small thicket of bracket is found just outside the cannibal's house. They were guarding a chest containing 17 Infused Pure Blue Crystals, 5 Pure Crystal Rings, and various other magical items. Meanwhile, a stranger leaves a note at the bank of Andris, reading, "Lemons and bones, there's more.. Red, the whole town. Warm the feast."

Many bracken, rust beasts, and stone golems are found in the area, along with the corpse of a brigand. They are guarding a chest containing etherite, ice and fire crystals, and various magical rings. In the center of the maze there are 8 more dragons, and inside the MR, many shelters have been put up, effectively sectioning off the dungeon into various rooms.

A few notes are found, reading, "Nothing down there but liches and death. We should forget this job and go", and "That idiot Bratham fell over a dragon egg and broke it. RETREAT!!!!!", and "This is all trash. I told you to find me a copy of the Book of Sky! - A." The next day, Captain Octar of the Marali Vanguard expressed interest in examining the Book of Sky in the possession of Citrinitas Aegis.

199 Lady Sophina of Mirith meets with Captain Farn Rigg. Rigg tells of his past as a member of N'eroth's old pirate crew, of how the future king was always enamored with the Mhara, and of how N'eroth and Istra Falvo used to have friendly arguments all night long on such erudite subjects as historical linguistics. He also explains the origin of his nickname, 'Blue Rigg'. Sophina then informs him of her recent expedition into the Mharan Waterway, and of her search for the Gellansha (see Fighting Moon Day 139). Rigg seems to remember something upon hearing about the Gellansha, but he can't put his finger on it. Finally, Blue Rigg gives Sophina a message in a bottle, asking her to leave it beside the oceanic-themed pillars which lie deep within the waterway.

224 Armsman Nial of Marali sends a letter to the myrmecologists of Lerilin, detailing an infestation of ants and pixies that had just occurred outside the northern city. Nial explains that lethal force must be used in such cases, but that Marali would be willing to aid the myrmecologists in relocating any queen ants in the future. N/A News Flash, Page 3 (1st post)
~228 Boale Myrmidon II of the Myrmecologist Society of Lerilin writes a scathing response to Nial, decrying Marali's treatment of the ants, and listing various explanations for what the ants might have been doing there. Boale expresses the myrmecologists' willingness to help build a facility dedicated to researching the ants in Marali, provided that the exterminations cease. Further, Boale suspects that the infestations may be the beginnings of a supercolony, and thus demands that the city provide lodging, cookies, robes of resistance, and bubble baths to their team of four specialists.

42 The alchemist of Marali, Gemma, converses with a patron while waiting for a shipment to arrive. She mentions that she has a cousin who works for the "brother of a Major" (most likely the mercenary leader Jassen Andon, AKA Captain Jass, exiled brother of the missing Major Cesca Andon). Gemma also mentions that her cousin is hoping to leave the mercenary life behind, move to Duldrus, and become a fisherman. Gemma The Eyes of the Vale
44 Adventurers from Mirith travel to the Mercenary Cave, hoping to peruse the library and perhaps find out more about Gemma's cousin. Instead, they find an infestation of ants just outside the cave. They exterminate the ants, only to find the storied cave to be under occupation by a hostile force of mercenaries, and thus they turn back. N/A The Eyes of the Vale
64 A sizable force from Mirith evicts the remaining mercenaries from the Mercenary Cave. In addition to mercenaries, there were also the brigands, giants, and trolls of the Alliance, guarding a number of spirit animals gliding around the library. Four crates are found in the western wing, containing a bow of speed, silver longsword, a few dozen bracken seeds, 100 explosive dusts, and 33 pixie dusts. There are also a number of notes revealing that the band of mercenaries had been tasked by Denreth with searching for a ring and Lushe Satel, as well as advancing on Andris.

They leave before much more can be ascertained. Afterwards, the publican Klevin reveals that the pair of pirates had come in several days earlier to purchase a sizable supply of mead and the aromatic floral milk that is endemic to the Duldrus region.

~180 Commander McTyr writes to Armsman Nial about the ant problem, as well as the encounter with Istra. For the first, he argues that Marali might benefit from the knowledge of the myrmecologists, and that it might be worthwhile to provide some cages for a research mission. Failing that, he recommends looking for some sort of specific poison to control the expansion. As for Istra, he can only speculate. Finally, McTyr leaves Nial with a directive: if he wishes to find out more about the role of the pixies in these ant infestations, Nial should seek out a lifelong researcher of pixiekind. Her name: Anthea Waltham, of Andris. Evroulf McTyr Maralian Antics (4th post)
