~Wayfarers to Build Ship~
Wayfarers Brotherhood leader, Morden Rasp, has claimed the northwestern edge of Antonica as his shipyard.
He has named the area, Nedaria’s Landing, after one of his leaders and close friends, reports say.
Sources say that the area is still being surveyed and that Rasp does have plans to hire the best and brightest shipwrights in Norrath. Get your resumes ready.
There is plenty of employment and work required for this ship which Rasp has called, “the biggest ship the world has ever seen.”
~Sweetzie Gets New Teeth~
Klok Sweetzie is now the proud owner of four new fangs.
Well known for her sweet tooth and talent for making baked goods, Sweetzie was an unfortunate victim of her own creations.
Three weeks ago, three of Sweetzie’s fangs finally expired and fell out after the consumption of so many baked goods.
Luckily, a friend and talented smithy, Klok Gritchit, was able to perform some reconstructive surgery using the teeth from one of the skeletons remaining in the Field of Bone. She is nearly 100 percent better, aside from a slight lisp.
“I thought I’d look deformed and that I’d have trouble uthing my teeth,” Sweetzie said. “Gritchit did a marvelouth job rethtoring my beautiful thmile too.”

~Wayfarers Find Grozmok Stone~
The Wayfarers Brotherhood has located the Grozmok Stone.
Calliav Giniuar, a magician becoming known for his strange visions, is now studying the stone.
“Our friend, Calliav, is researching the Grozmok Stone and believes it has some kind of magic that may impact our next journey,” said Morden Rasp, Wayfarers Brotherhood leader.
The ship that the Wayfarers Brotherhood is building in Nedaria’s Landing is well underway as well.
“We’re always looking for enterprising young Norrathians to help us out here,” Rasp said.
In a strange turn of events, War Historian Kobl was mugged several days ago.
“Some dastardly rogue snuck up behind me and beat me about the head,” Kobl recounted. “When I woke up, they had stolen all of my illweed reeds and most of my blood ink.”
Kobl said he didn’t get a description of the assailant and is thankful that his life was spared.
“I don’t understand it really,” Kobl said. “How lazy have our iksar brethren become if they can’t even go fishing for illweed reeds. I mean, I make the parchments for free!”
Kobl would appreciate any donations of illweed reeds that the citizens have to offer. He will also accept components for his special recipe of blood ink.
“I just want to get back on my feet and back in business,” he said.

~Wayfarers Discover Taelosia~
The Wayfarers Brotherhood took the great ship, the Queen of Thorns, across the Abysmal Sea and found a continent surrounded by turbulent storms. Using the strange new stones, the ship now rests protected off the shores.
Magus Wenla said he had been in touch with a scout who was sent back to Antonica to prepare others to sail to the new continent.
“The scout said it was a terrible journey, but they followed the Grozmok Stone the whole way — it did as Calliav thought. It was a compass that led them into a safe harbor on the west side of the continent,” Wenla said.
There is a boat that will travel between Nedaria’s Landing and the Abysmal Sea, Wenla said. He added that the scout had mentioned terrible creatures in that new part of the world. Only the most sturdy and skilled should dare venture to the continent.
~Scaling Up Donations~
Grand Master Glox has put out the order to have all Cabilis citizens donate their precious goods and focus their prayers to Cazic Thule in homage in order for us to create surpluses of favor, or magic, to draw from.
So far, the donations have been slow. It seems are fellow iksar are having trouble parting with their fineries. Grand Master Glox said strict punishment will be delivered to those who don’t cooperate with sustaining the continuance of all iksar.
Hierophant Vjen has become the Tribute Master for Cabilis and will accept donations. In exchange, you will be granted the opportunity to improve yourself with any surplus magic we have.

~Death Defying Mission~
An anonymous source has revealed that Wayfarers Brotherhood leaders Morden Rasp and Tondal Di’Xevar are on a mission to reach the highest temples of Taelosia.
“All me know is dat dey gots on da little boat and sailed off to da Natimbi place. Me heard Calliav Giniuar talk to Morden Rasp about finding some shiny ting and bringing it back to da ship, see,” the anonymous source said.
Nedaria Debeian, left to run the Queen of Thorns, did not have too much to say on the subject. She had reportedly been ill lately, but would not confirm or deny that information.
“Yes, they have indeed gone to Taelosia with a purpose, but I will not tell you what it is,” Nedaria said.
Calliav Giniuar would not comment.
Two broodlings were injured yesterday when the walls of a housing structure collapsed on them. “Why can’t we get these buildingsss fixed? Everything isss crumbling around here,” said Gissia Spiketooth, the mother of the injured broodlings.
Other citizens agree that the city’s buildings need to be repaired, but are afraid to speak out.
Toonga Sissfisaf, chief planner for the city, thinks the buildings are fine the way they are. “Why waste money on such a thing when the emperor needsss a new palace? Seemsss greedy to ask for such thingsss,” said Toonga.

~Brotherhood Leader Ill~
Rumors about the failing health of one of the Wayfarers Brotherhood leaders, Nedaria Debeian, have drifted from the Abysmal Sea to the rest of Norrath.
Those who claim to have seen Nedaria in recent days suggest that she is near death.
Nedaria’s aides, Wuria Pyskar and Parillin Shurava, claim the Erudite simply has a temporary viral illness.
“She is just fine and will be back on her feet very soon,” Wuria said. “We sit with her all day and tend to her needs as she gets over this sickness.”
Others claim to have seen several shamans and clerics entering Nedaria’s chambers and exiting with no answer or cure for the frail female.
~Frogloks Attack City ~
A small force of frogloks from the nearby city of Krup in the Swamp of No Hope recently snuck into the aqueducts of West Cabilis.
They were able to overpower and slay one guard before being captured and destroyed.
Trooper Eglo said, “There are not enough iksarsss going to the swamp and killing these frogsss. Perhapsss we need to cull their numbersss a bit.”
There have been no official plans to raid Krup, despite Trooper Eglo’s statement.
