    As told by Ghost Writer:

    I received a message from an old friend Sara telling me there may be a fierce battle and asked if I could keep an eye out for news for her as she was currently indisposed. She had told me to check around Empath Abby in Yew, Felucca, on Saturday, September 5, saying that the Lady Dawn had called the citizens of Britannia to arms to fight the Crimson Dragons which have invaded our fair lands. So off I went with quill and scrolls.

    When I arrived there was already a small army assembled. Dawn and the Dragon Fayaxion told us that the Platinum Dragons had defeated most of the Crimson Dragons but needed our help to rid the lands of the remaining Crimsons. Dawn opened a gate to the center of a great battle and off we went. I died within seconds of arriving through the gate so was no help in defeating the dragons, but did my best to record the battle for the historians of Britannia.


    The battles were fierce. The Crimson Dragons set of spells which seemed to cause Armageddon. Massive amounts of fire and energy would spread from them damaging anything that dared come near. The warriors with the help of Platinum Dragons stood strong and fought well together never giving in to the Crimsons.


    After what seemed like hours, I started to notice the life draining from many of the crimsons, could it be that the warriors of Britannia were finally taking their toll on the mighty Crimson Dragons? Then proof, as I wandered around as a ghost I found a corpse of a Crimson, then another, and another.


    Then I ran into Lady Dawn who thought it was finally safe for me to come back to life. Which I happily did with her help.


    After looking around a bit at all the carnage I noticed at least one Crimson left being finished off by a few of our citizens. There were also small battles breaking out among the citizens themselves, now that the Crimsons were dead it seems they decided to fight over the loot. I quietly made my way back to Empath Abby on foot and awaited everyone's return.


    They all came back with minutes of my arrival and Fayaxion and Lady Dawn told us about plans for another battle yet tomorrow. The brave citizens of Britannia will be called on once more to rid our lands of evil. I will pass this along to my friends, Sara of Baja and Michael Wolf, as I think tomorrow he be far more able than I.


    Until we meet again,
