Okay, so I know it hasn’t been that long since the last letter, but so much stuff happened last time!
You know that coin I talked about? It’s some kind of staple magic item of Karontor used for communication over long distances. The coins work in pairs, each pair being unique. Apparently, these things were, like, EVERYWHERE during the war since they’re so handy, but the downside is they can kind of corrupt your soul. Otherwise, I’d totally nab a pair and send you one.
Anyway, so one of the guys smart enough to surrender to us, John, was talking to his dad Robert using a coin, and when Robert went missing, John knew there was only one crew awesome enough to take on the task of tracking him down. Seeing as we were going southeast of the city, Mixmaster Z asked us to be official super-duper emissaries of the town to all the farmers and trappers and stuff out that way. It’s on an actual piece of paper and everything! Like I said, I pretty much run this place now.
On the way we got ambushed by some goblins! Well, I wasn’t surprised, since my razor-sharp battle instincts immediately alerted me that something was up. We beat them down, and then talked to their leader Zahp and his wolf Zero. Thanks to some l33t negotiation, he agreed to give up being a bandit, but he warned us about his boss Tatty Bogle, who apparently has a whole bunch of goblins and stuff under his command.
We found Robert’s house, and, because of my mad investigation skillz, found out that he had probably been ensorcelled by some kind of magic shield. We also found a pendant belonging to his old group the Longbows (He didn’t use a bow though, it was kind of weird). His old friend Richard contacted us, and we realized Robert must have gone to fight Tatty Bogle due to the Shield’s enchantment, which makes you think you’re an awesome hero. (As opposed to actually BEING an awesome hero, like me).
We got there in the nick of time, and I was totally just about to wreck Tatty Bogle’s day, but
he was really tricky with this weird long range grab and got me the sun was in my eyes, and he ended up getting away. Looks like he might be a servant to some kind of powerful fey person (Do you think Grandma would know which one?).
We managed to get the Shield away from Robert, and it turns out the Shield is another of those artifacts of Vor Thomil that I told you about! Now we got two of ‘em, so the pressure’s really on!
So Richard was really grateful that we helped out Robert and made us all members of his group and gave us pendants so that we can talk to each other. We still need a new name for the group though (FeyBlades?).
Speaking of names, the town is gonna get to vote on our name pretty soon, so let me know if you’ve thought of any good ones. Snapdragon’s Awesome Village was immediately rejected (which is totally bogus, by the way), so I’m out of ideas.
Oh, and I picked up a new flunky! He’s a goblin I’ve named “Pleasedon’tkillme” since that’s all he says. It’s not too surprising since I kicked his ass so hard his grandma spit out my shoelaces, but still, it gets a bit monotonous.
Definitely not missing Mithrendain or anyone in it,
