The Order of the Silver Rose would like to apologize for our absence. Unfortunately, after our scouting trip to Kheldriver we have discovered the Trolls have a stronger/mutated and highly contagious form of the Blight. The vial of blood that was brought back for analysis to our Archmage Sir Cyrus, confirmed this. So we have locked down the Keep in quarantine as well as anyone inside the Keep or in contact with the blood. No one was allowed in or out to prevent spread of the disease.
The Scouting Report is the following:
Upon inspection of the Blood the report is as follows:Uther3867 wrote:KhelDrivvr/Troll Claws Scouting Report
In the Team
Squire Junior OSR
Lady Nina OSR
Mendel of EDE
Vendor of Elder Circle
Dorne of Elder Circle
Knight Clint James
as we headed into the troll claws we came upon a feeling of dread and as we ventured forth we ran into a infected troll of the Blight...upon reasoning of burning it's corpse it let off a Miasma i'm recommending that all members of the Scouting party be checked if there infected at all. also as we ventured for the name Ignik'tok and they were afflicted and not regenerating as normal. also along the way we found rotting corpses that had become part of the Undead. though not sure if the trolls are undead they were able to use magic and were proficient in use of more sharpened blades and weapons, we also encountered one just upon reaching Kheldrivver and it was in a Very Thick and heavy Dense cloud of foulness, it was very Resilient to our blades and to our weapons but we defeated it and when we have more on what it is we will contact you all. Also by no means approach the Troll Claws..our scouting alerted them and they sent war Parties into the troll Claws we were luck to make it out ourselves we need everyone to come together on a planned assualt on Kheldrivvr
Order of the Silver Rose
((copy of this is being sent to the war council))
by the time you see this Junior should have already given you the blood sample from the most Resilient troll it was black skinned and could sniff out Mendel and Vendor hiding in there own elements, also please Contact if you haven't already your Brothern in Krak Helzak and alert them to the issue in there Area i fear for them
If anyone else has come into contact with the Infected Trolls or especially the blood please act accordingly. The methods we used to cure the Blight from ourselves and the Keep were:*The blood is a thick, black ichor. It is a manifestation of the Blight. However, due to the powerful capabilities of troll blood, the Blight seems to have infused with it, and the two components seem to strengthen each other. It has increased the regenerating rate the blood offers and is highly toxic to any other living being it comes in contact with*
Remove Disease spells and potions
Mass Heal spells and potions
Soap and Hot Water
If anyone would like to aid Kheldriver and rid the town of these infected beasts please report your offer of aid to Mayor Matthew of Khedriver (( DM Pun Pun )) and to Miss Reine who is heading up the effort.DM Pun Pun wrote:*Slowly but surely, the work of the Silver Rose pays dividends as the threat of the Blight is erased from the Keep.*

Carefully they sneak further north to get closer to the Keep of Kheldrivver.In the shadow of the night and hidden by heavy rain the two invisible stalkers try to get as close as possible. The information they gather will be important for Reine's plan.
Clint answeredTouri wrote:"Dear friends,
together with the dwarf Orin Ironfell I scouted the fortress city of Kheldrivver. Even invisible and hidden we haven't been able to get close to the city. But this is what we found out:
The air all arround is tainted and the blight is very contagious. The path and the walls are adorned with crude Totems. The Miasma, probably the same as near Kraak Helzak is stronger than it is in the Trollclaws and permeates from mounds of rotten material that is seen all around the outskirts of the city. Pobably there are some in the city as well.
The blighted Trolls are numerous. They have adepted to the disease and are quick, strong and full of life. All the troll spoke the same phrase, "Ing'nik'tok".
There is a map of Kheldrivver and the surroundings attached to this letter.
We have to meet very soon. The Trolls will get stronger and it seems also more intelligent with time.

I've been sitting on this plan and it's the only one that makes sense provided the intelligence, cure disease wands will work in actual contact perhaps but i'm leaning towards the time they've had to become one with the Miasma and such that we may need a tougher approach and the aid of the Sky
i've seen 2 druids shape shift into some form of dragon or Avian. with that i'm suggesting the following
1st. we need to gather many Alchemists and potion brewers we need consentrated formulas of cure Desiease the more potent the better and were gonna need alot
2nd. we need a distribution method since i figure Air would be our best overall delivery method since we can get over the target and i'll need a few scholars to help on the vectors of it ((yeah for physics)) rather than just dropping potion bottles i figure lined distrabution over the area may prove to work.
3rd. after the Delivery we need a force to pull the Trolls into the troll claws at the forje we can hold them if we can get the river up stream continually blessed it would help or a overwhelming force at the head way the lords alliance is still here asking for there hand and the cannons in the forje may prove useful.
4th. strike team, while the other force is pullling away a few scouts with a sender mage will be overlooking kheldrivvr when they seem to leave there skeleton group behind we teleport a team to the scouts location to take out what ever is causing this infection and mutation.
really complex i know but thus far least amount of causalities i can figure
Knight Warrant of the OSR
we are still working out the rough edges but please let our comrades in arms know that this plan is availble

With these two scouting reports compiled, the Order of the Silver Rose stands by, ready for action. Sir Clint has written a battle plan and the Knight Generals are reviewing it now. I will submit it for all of your review very soon once the final draft is made.
The Order of the Silver Rose is once again sending our Knights to Kraak Helzak to stand by our most trusted friends and Allies, The Dwarves of Stonebar, so that we can have our troops ready in the event of attack in and around their keep and / or ready for deployment to Kheldriver if Kraak Helzak is secure.
Please continue to circulate any scouting reports and updates among us and Thank You for your diligence.

Hello Mayor Matthew of Kheeldriver,
I am writing to offer you the aid of Phoenix Company to your town. I have heard of horrible miasma near by, threatening trolls, and a resurgent plague.
My company has some skill in assault patrols, guarding, and problem solving. Many of our members are mages, familiar with the arcane and direct applications there of. While it is true we are not particularly dedicated to anyone one task, we are a well rounded force well suited for many roles.
Hoping to hear how we may assist you soon,
