    [Compassion Grove, Trammel] According to Justicar Fl'Gith, who spoke with this reporter earlier this morning, last evening's relief caravan intended to aid the starving citizens of Minoc left yesterday evening from the armory of the Yew Militia, and headed for the road leading east past the Serpent Spine Mountains, on into Minoc. The caravan had barely passed the Shrine of Chaos near the Mage City of Wind when members of the Temple of Mondain popped out from the forest.

    It was reported to the Justicar that Seldane, a member of the Temple of Mondain, had said, "Well, I do fear that one way or another, we will be delivering the food, my good man," and when Xetaryn of Dracona indicated they would not allow the Mondainites to poison the food and complete the delivery, Seldane further responded, "Enhancing, not poisoning." Shortly thereafter, the forces engaged each other, and the caravan was lost, with the Temple of Mondain victorious in derailing the caravan, but unable to achieve any gain from the foodstuffs which were also lost. Justicar Fl'Gith assured this reporter that another attempt to deliver aid to the impoverished people of Minoc.


    The true reason for this reporter's visit with the Justicar this morning, however, was to ask if there had been a second message left by the Cult of Styx, as this reporter had visited Kahler's black sextant in Magincia, which was reporting, "There is something in the crypt at 80o36'N 25o52'W." Arrival at the scene in the Yew Crypts showed only two ziggurats, which Justicar Fl'Gith indicated had been on either side of a gate which led to a series of previously unknown tunnels filled with many green-bodied undead that appeared to be infected by something. Justicar Fl'Gith, responsible for decoding many of the messages for the Royal Spies, indicated that another message had been found, which to the best of his ability he had determined to read: Corpses to carry the pot.

    Able bodied citizens are still encouraged to help defend Yew. The Justicar noted that the undead threat in the Yew Crypts was strong and very real. This evening, somewhere around the hour of 8:00 PM (CST), the next incursion of the liches should be noted by the sextant in Magincia.
