    Ingrid, the Chief Healer of Cove, reports that she may have discovered the cause of the illness now afflicting seventeen people, including two adolescents.

    An illegal orcish mining operation was discovered on the mountain forming the majority of Cove’s natural barrier. The healer believes that chemicals used by the orcs to extract gold from low-grade ore may have leached into the water supply.

    At present, potable water is being shipped in from neighboring Britain until the means to purify Cove's drinking water is found.

    The chief of the nearby orc clan violently refused to comment.

    The current detente between the orcs and Cove is not expected to last.
