[top]Plots and Rumors

[top]Warring tribes

Daeric has long struggled to contain the violence between the sidhe of the woods and the Dhoesoneans. He recently came to suspect that many of the attacks on loggers were staged by Adaere Doneim to justify reprisals against the sidhe. Daeric plans to catch the guildsman in the act with the aid of some elven contacts ? and then force the guilder?s men to admit their master?s involvement in the attacks.

[top]Goblin trouble

While there had long been rumors that the Red Fist goblins worshiped some strange beast it was only recently that a half mad survivor of one of their rituals described the Stone God to the court. Ever since he learned of the idol Daeric has tried to scry the Stone God and searched old texts for mention of similar statues. Daeric has found out another such statue was apparently buried in a landslide in Dharelein and one in Nolien was destroyed by the ?Sceptre of Vorynn?, though he has yet to discover why, how, or what the Sceptre of Vorynn might be.
Other legends he found warned of great danger that could be unleashed if ancient wards related to the statues were gathered and broken before it; Daeric is becoming increasingly desperate to find out more in case the stone god is a threat to the realm.

[top]A brooch for the baroness

Daeric is currently making an enchanted brooch for the Baroness to protect her against harm. He is searching for a flawless sapphire and diamond (faith and spirit) to match his ruby (hope).

[top]Bad magic

Daeric recently fell out with a former apprentice Trevan over a matter both refuse to speak of. Rumors from Muldon?s Ford say that an illusion created by the lad attacked several people and had to be fought by Daeric himself. Daeric is said to be trying to discover whether the spell went so disastrously wrong due to Trevan?s error or some mystic property of the village.
