My Friends in CrIsis-

Yes, I am alive, and I am free! Thanks to my wonderful wife, Christine and cousin Cora, who along with many of the crew of the former Redbeard secured my release.

30 of the 50 that served on the Redbeard serve with me now! With Honey and Annie with you, that means that 32 of the 50 now serve with the Light! We now go to reunite our country of Bizantium, and concentrate the fight on the true evil- that of the Iceborn and Terosh!

The Dark and Chaotic forces have done an amazingly good job here. They took an area with real grievances, Sinza, and made it a symbol. Then they capitalized on prejudices, and broke the country along those lines. They then started the civil war with the Shadow Coast. Lastly they added the great evil, Terosh. I know not who, or whom, orchestrated this all, but it is a fine mess.

Fala and King Wilgan have of course labeled us traitors. They are still more concerned in exerting their control over their colonies in the Shadow Coast, and quelling that rebellion, than fighting for Bizantium lives against the Iceborn.

I have read some of the speeches and sermons given in the South about Terosh- that he just wishes to unite all of Palladium without interference from the Gods. The monster, and the monsters he leads, are a completely different story! He speaks of unification, but feasts on the blood of Man! He seeks ultimate power, and has blinded the world!

The smaller islands of Bizantium have fallen- utter destruction in the path of the Iceborn! They have come in their Serpent Ships, the Necroilus, and destroyed all that was upon them. The only smaller island untouched was the Island of Sinza– perhaps because of the Pyramid, perhaps Terosh was afraid of the Light becoming aware, I know not. I saw one of the islands first hand- even bones were hard to find, much less the living. It was truly grisly!

It has also been brought to my attention that Terosh wields a piece of the Great One, the Left Eye, and he uses it to magnify his powers to great effect! This was the piece formerly held by Barbarians that I told you of Long Ago.

They have now just landed their army, their “Congregation”, on the Northern Shores of Bizantium Island itself. We go to join our fellow Dwarves in Stonebrook. There we shall mount a defense of the interior, far from their Necromantic Ships of Death. Please join us there! I shall send word when they approach- it should be after the Festival of the Pantheon of Ra, in the month of Ra most likely, or perhaps Thoth. Please sail here and give your support for all Free Folk- Terosh and his people say you are Palladium’s downfall, but I know you to be Palladium’s Saviors!

I will continue to gather information- please feel free to contact me in Stonebrook, and I will share all that I know! “We will know our enemy so that he may be defeated, for only when the Light of Knowledge shines upon the Darkness may it be dispelled,” or so says my lovely wife Christine!
