Reports of Devil led or inspired raids west of Boareskyr bridge and a fear they are looking for a way south. Herein a selection of recent observations.
And from the northern lands, where this straggler of a lost battle may first have been seen stumbling close to the Coast Way road, all the way south to the Eastern District of the Gate where this knight finally enters the care of others trained in healing and hospice, a rumor may very well generate, radiate back outward:
A scouting mission within the Troll Claw Hills led to marks and wounds bearing devilish claws tore through armor, flesh and bone. And if it is true what the knight said to his caretakers upon his return, the Hells have opened up from within Caves once held by only Trolls...and Faith appears to be not enough to hold fast against their coming....
Trade further afield in the Trollclaws grinds to a halt with increased Devil activity. Even powerfully equipped adventurers have met with some setbacks.
A more distant rumour puts the Ebon blade as unlikely heroes in this tale, while others claim they are in the midst of launching an expedition to recover old and perhaps foul artefacts. But of course rumour does not always travel well.
Trade further afield in the Trollclaws grinds to a halt with increased Devil activity. Even powerfully equipped adventurers have met with some setbacks. Indeed elements of a Krinkrak patrol clashed with scouts from the Yhogovolish Devil group, and the dwarven clan made off with gathered intelligence.
As preparations are underway for other areas of operation and strange goings on around Boareskyr Bridge are being reported any sightings or movements south and east are of great concern to the City.Dwarves of Clan Krinkrak, said to be on the Coast seeking their ancestral home, are rumoured to have called at the Flaming Fist outpost to the north of Baldur's Gate to warn that they have seen Devil scouts, and heard they are on the march and are intent upon taking to the offensive, using Goblins and other races to drive their attacks. These rumours are countered by the continued build up of the Flaming Fist forces. An official attempted, with mixed success, to reassure Bards hot on the trail of truth that all was well.
