    The Gorgon has retreated

    The people of Anuire can breathe freely again, as the Gorgon has called of
    his offensive on Ghoere (he would have won that one, folks!), and has
    pulled his forces out of Mhoried and Elinie. He still keeps Cariele
    occupied, though.

    What has happened? Why did the Gorgon choose to retreat?
    Rumour has it that Zakhur lifebane, Dragon of the Five Peaks, confronted
    the Gorgon and persuaded him to call of his war. What has persuaded the
    mighty Lifebane to intervene in this inconsequential war?
    And what talisman is that the dragon is wearing?
    And goblins say that a dragon visited Zakhur, and that they were just
    about to fight over the contents of an elven adventurers backpack?

    Well, Lifebane courteously allowed my players characters to come visit
    him, and he bade them go fetch an amulet (a dragon-sized amulet!) in a
    cave in the Chimaeron, the home of five insane magicians (tried to clone
    themselves with a scroll...nasty story).
    They fetched the amulet, and then Zakhur persuaded the Gorgon to stop his
    war. I didn't feel like playing out a combat between the Gorgon and the
    Dragon (one of them would die, and I need both in my campaign).

    That is an interesting way to have the pc's stop the gorgon without fighting
    him. Mine had a similar predicament and to stop it they start a war between
    two other countries and managed to get the armies in the same general area
    as theirs and the Gorgon's. Through deciet, treachery and blackmail get the
    leaders to move the armies against the Gorgon. In the end they did enough
    damage to confine his conquest to a few territories.
