From the desk of Angelique - The Grimswind Saga
It all started nearly 3 years ago, when Grimswind came to Malas...
There we found several people and creatures that inhabited this strange place.
These "people" were once very dangerous but now appear to be rehabilitated while in this town. Creatures that were once murderers have reformed to being upstanding citizens.
because of their long and dark past, these "people" were unable to rejoin society
in Britannia. Instead, they remain in this special city that is invisible to
the citizens of Sosaria, only to appear 1 night every year. While most would think this is to protect the citizens around Sosaria, it is in fact meant to protect the citizens of Grimswind as some still are skeptical of their reform.
Our previous visit with these people appeared to be one of the introductions. These "people" did in fact appear to be reformed by our investigations. And so, following our introductions and pleasantries, they departed.
Once again, in October of last year, the city did appear to us. This time, things were out of sorts. The city appeared to have been attacked, it's buildings burning, it's citizens in dismay. Once more, we investigated the situation, only to find out that a key element in keeping the citizens there and their past aggression sealed, a special book, was torn apart.
Upon speaking with Jack, we found that these pages were more than something of a twisted fairy tale, these pages indeed held all their past and the evils that once plagued them within. But the pages were torn from the book. Unleashed into the realms of Sosaria. Because of this, Jack was unable to fully seal the town away and instead allowed Frau Holda, their finest "mage", to assist us in finding these pages, adding them to the book so that the people may rest easy once more.
There did appear to be 2 more "people" than usual there outside of the city, hidden in the trees. Were these the culprits? Did they unleash these pages? And if so, why? Did they create these “summons” that appear with each page?
Each month, Frau Holda has assisted us in retrieving the pages, one by one, to add to the book. But not without its work! For the pages themselves appeared to take on a life of their own, releasing the evil that they held. Thankfully, because of Frau, we can find each page before they are unleashed completely and set their sights on innocent citizens.
Some still feel Frau is not as helpful as she is. Still, time and time again, she has found these creatures at their spawn points so we can stop them before they make it beyond there. While she does not physically assist with the sealing of them (as we do not know why), I am sure that is why my Guards are suspicious of what she wants.
Thus far, we have managed to find 6 pages; Jack, The Marquise, Penelope Wyze, Abbigail Brewster, Frau Holda and Frederique.
Each of these pages is more dangerous than the last.
However, in our last encounter with Frederiques page, there appeared to be some anger from Frau (more than usual). We're unsure why she was so angry at this one. However, it is my understanding there was someone hidden in the shadows watching everything take place. Who could this have been, what do they want? Are they the ones that caused this? There are so many questions left unanswered.
Very soon we will have audience with Frau, so that the citizens and their Governors may ask some questions in hopes of shedding some life on what is going on...
