Two of my Ascalonian friends, Elwin and Xiara invited me to come with them to the Diessa Lowlands. The subject matter was a surprise, but they said it would be fun. I was instructed to meet them at the Grenditch Courthouse, where not only were they waiting for me, but so was Gwen. The whole event had actually been something the young Ebon Vanguard had designed. Earlier that day Elwin and Xiara surprised Gwen by presenting her a tapestry shred. I know it doesn’t seem like much, but apparently it holds a great significance to Gwen and the early heroes of Ascalon that trained before the Searing.

After the Great Destroyer was killed, word spread of suspicious Stone Summit activity near the Verdant Cascades. When Malory and I arrived to check it out, we found a room filled with norn waiting for a great challenge.

An old friend of mine, Killroy Stoneskin caught my attention in Gunnar’s Hold with an interesting request. Word had reached him that Fronis Irontone (the brother of a Stone Summit fiend he’d killed in Sorrow’s Furnace) was rallying a resistance in a nearby camp. In addition to the injustices the Stone Summit have committed to the Deldrimor Dwarves, Fronis also owes Killroy money. I very reluctantly offered to help out, especially when I heard that we’d be going in alone. But after Killroy said I was a no good fighter and a coward, I had to prove him wrong!
