After an exhausting fight of nigh on three hours, the brave defenders of Sosaria managed to defeat the latest Shadowlord invasion force, this time in Vesper. Present at the fight were several Gilfane members, Skyler of I^A, independent TigerDyr and the enigmatic Yahaxithonix. The battle was long and hard. At last, the Ophidians were driven back north of the town around The Spinning Wheel tailor shop. Once this last pocket of resistance was annihilated, the terrible Crimson Dragon appeared near the tinker's shop in the centre of the town. The beat was then lured to the clearer area around the docks where the defenders had assembled. The fight against the dragon was the most destructive one yet faced, with bodies of man and beast littering the ground, but once more the forces of good and justice prevailed and the poor citizens of Vesper were freed from a slimy fate for the second time in as many years. Congratulations to all who took part!
