Eminent explorer
Ptolemy Fairweather, one of Eventyr’s most eminent explorers, has booked his return passage to the mainland. He originally came to the island to escape bullying bailiffs having accrued massive debts from an assortment of madcap schemes to get rich quick. Having had to leave his wife and children behind on the mainland he was determined to return to them as soon as he could without endangering their safety. On the newly discovered land Ptolemy was sure he would finally have success at finding his fortune and put his heart & soul into doing it fast. Sure enough, he was right and as many local merchants will say, he’s worth his weight in gold. Let’s just hope he didn’t shoot the goose that the laid the golden egg to provide himself with a celebratory dinner! Today we’re pleased to be congratulating him, and wishing him a speedy and safe return to his family, but before he leaves, we got this exclusive quote: 
“This land is a bountiful place full of many hidden treasures. Through luck and persistence I discovered some of these, the locations of which I shall be revealing to close friends on the day I travel. In the mean time I would advise those with money hunger and persistence to search high and low. But I would caution any would-be adventurers to remember that there’s no point being rich and dead, your life is always worth more than the contents of your pockets”

The Ground Beneath Our Feet!
Great rumblings have been heard in the north of the land. According to long term residents of the land such phenomenon have occurred, albeit infrequently, throughout living history. However, though the regularity of the rumblings hasn’t changed, the significance has. They have been described as a noise like a deep, prolonged thunder, accompanied by a shudder. Some say that this shudder is felt through the soles of the feet, right the way to the top of their spines. Others say the vibrations start within the core of their body, beginning in their chests and radiating out. 
No-one knows the true cause of the rumblings, but the growth in their volume has certainly lead to a growth in the volume of old wives tales and wagging tongues. Many an old story has been awoken by the shaking earth.

Mild winter storms!

With the mild weather at the start of this year the usual storms are held at bay. Usually this would be considered good news save that no storms has allowed piracy to begin earlier this year! Indeed early reports suggest pirates are active just beyond Shadowcove! The local harbour master says’ with the number of small islands just beyond our shores they have plenty of places to spring from! In all my years I have never heard of pirate attacks this early though, bring back the storms I say!’

To Have and to hold…
Even with the onset of winter and the dark times a bright light of happiness still shines through. Within Lakeport two Norse adventurers conducted their vows in front of locals and fellow adventurers alike. One local said ‘The bride looked stunning; with the whitest dress I have ever seen. She looked like an angel’. The local priest said ’They used a priest of their own faith, who did a wonderful job of the ceremony. I am rather jealous as it has been a while since we have had a wedding in these parts!’

Daring Rescue into Hidden valley
A group of adventurers successfully managed to find within the hidden valley of the Cyclops Salib brother to the mage Khalid. Khalid had been searching for his brother since he went missing earlier in the spring working as a cartographer and explorer to this unknown region. Certain of where to look after other failed searches Khalid drew several local bands of adventurers around him to improve their chances. The rescue was not without incident or indeed danger, yet Salib was rescued without loss of life to the large adventuring party.
