Early on the morning of March 5th, Lord Willow was out mining and minding his own business. As he was digging and daydreaming his pickaxe bit into a live part of the mountainside, jarring awake an ancient creature - an Elemental of Shadow Iron. Very angry at being disturbed, the Elemental roared to life, lumbering after the very startled Lord Willow. Immediately, Lord Willow calls for his trusty companion Onyx to protect him from the Elemental. Onyx valiantly tries to lay the Elemental down, alas his fierce bites and scratches do nothing. Knowing that Onyx will surely parish, Lord Willow calls the cu to him and flees to the nearby home of Morgana Le Fey. Having told Morgana of the situation, she offers to bring forth her newest pet, the greater dragon Hellfyre. Lord Willow, finding this a good idea, sends Onyx to the stable and brings his own dragon, Bohica. Together they battle the Elemental, to no avail. As the day progressed more people came along and joined the battle, and yet the Elemental never falls. By late evening there is a veritable army of pets attempting to lay low this ancient Elemental. Many Lords and Ladies, and even some young rangers, new to the field, brought pets of all kinds. Cu Sidhe, Greater Dragons, Bake Kitsune, even two Imprisoned Dogs and once Chicken assault the seemingly invulnerable Shadow Elemental. Slowly, people fall away, exhausted. In the end, one single young man beats the still angry Elemental with his Boomstick, and it is finally vanquished.
