There has been unrest in the lands. Unusual reports from the islands. People started to move from place to place - new faces show up, disappear just to reappear again with no explanation. The common folk are worried. There has been a talk of a monster and forbidden magic. People are afraid to leave their homes at night. It also seemed that walls have ears - there is a lack of trust between people - it is as though someone has planted paranoia everywhere - and each passing day is making it grow out of control.
All of this has been a matter of concern for Sir Kejtar. He is worried for his people, worried for the land, worried for Lenfald, worried for the world. He wants action but he does not want people to panic. He decided to meet with his uncle Dowgierd and Jules to see if there is anything that they have heard as they have spent the recent weeks on patrol and scouting missions. He chose for that meeting the resting place of his parents - a crypt deep underground.
After paying respects to those who have passed, Jules recounted the stories she has heard during patrol of the lands. Each one seemed to be more unbelievable then the other - unfortunately each time it seemed that they got there too late... Dowgierd had similar experience.
The question at hand is - what next? Is there an unnamed threat that draws its strength from the dark arts? Is someone trying to frighten the peasants and take advantage of the unrest and imbalance?
