    Cora the Explorer
    *tongue in cheek*​


    Fiction follows:

    Cora was an inquisitive gal who never paid much mind to warnings of danger.

    If there was something to be explored, she would pack a satchel with needed supplies, grab her walking shoes and be out the door. She would log her journeys and catalog her findings to release to various museums.

    Her endeavors was not one of glory or personal wealth, it was only to satisfy her personal curiosity. Every path had a way, even if one must create their own.

    The first tales of protestors and disgruntled citizens came weeks ago. This did not peek her curiosity enough to travel from her mountain home. Once word of rioters and then raiders reached her ears, she knew to stay far enough away from towns and rely on her own resources, as slim as they were becoming.

    Then tales of a blast that shook the lands and of rock slides that blocked entry into resource areas of Ilshenar filtered up to her mountain home. With this news, many were saying Callie was exploring deep within the region at the time. Callie was an explorer Cora knew well though they did not get on with each other. Callie was a treasure seeker, always looking for her next profit and would smile a sweet smile while lies escaped her lips. No one knows if Callie survived the blast, only that she was there when it happened.

    Now it seemed as if the balance of the lands were changing. Rioters, raiders, mysterious disappearances and blocked lands.

    Cora traveled to Ilshenar but every path in was blocked by massive boulders. Tales from the Meer and Juka at increased odds were of great concern. Could this have to do with what Callie was doing? What was she up to this time?

    Cora relied on Eden the gypsy fortune teller at times, but all she would say was the cards turned spell loyalty for some, death for others. "Seek the Shirron," she whispered as she eyed Carl behind her. Then, "be careful what you seek and more careful with what you find....."

    Grabbing an empty journal from the vagabond, she slipped it into her satchel and headed for the Gargoyle city close enough to these tales to perhaps have more information.

    Quest with Cora as she updates her journals of adventure:

    Look for Cora in general chat at various times throughout Sunday (April 1st) and Monday (April 2nd)

    She will announce 30 minutes prior to her journey into the mountains of Ilshenar. Come prepared to fight if necessary for no one knows what dangers may await them!

    Journal entry 4/1/2012

    Today I met with some citizens in Nujelm who were also curious about what happened in Ilshenar. We were a small band of adventurers with two Great Dragons the first time around and a smaller band of 4 the second time in. We did find the Shirron inside the walls of the Gargoyle city as I suspected. There he asked us to help him find a cure for his faithful Waymaster, Harlann and others.

    Our journey took us all over the lands of Ilshenar so I suggest good walking shoes and a canteen of water. The sample for the cure came with great injuries repeatedly but in the end we did prevail. We did find some samples the Shirron requested and returned it to him. He was so relieved he offered the information we were seeking, how to pass across the rock slides by the gypsy camp in Compassion.

    Once on the other side, to my shock there were more dangers of a different sort! We were such a small group but we did manage to retrieve some Heirlooms that some may find interesting....

    on a sad note: I have to report that on my second journey over, we lost a member of our group, Miss Perfect. Sara Dale did manage to save her belongings until the gods return her to us. I awaited until her bones were no more then took a long slow walk home with my head hung low. Perhaps I can avenge her untimely death soon.

    post scriptum:
    I am vastly enjoying those I have met already.
    Why have I stayed to myself in the mountains for so long?
