Hero Announcements - Collated by Maleah
You wouldn't ever guess who volunteered of his own free will to host
this month's soiree for the new heroes, so I'll just tell you. Marious.
Marious hosted it right there in the war room.
Let me start from the beginning. Last week when I checked my mail, I
received an egg. Just a plain ordinary catacomb egg from none other than
Marious. When I picked it up I could hear something shift inside. Not knowing
just what to do with it, I gathered the rest of my mail along with the egg and
headed back to my office. After studying it, I decided it didn't weigh enough
to contain a creature, but there was definitely something inside. Well, of
course I opened it and when I peered inside there was a rather odd looking
scroll tied with gold ribbon.
The scroll apparently was my invitation to the party for the new
heroes. What a clever idea! So anyway, a week later I made my grand entrance
(as always) at the war room. The room was pretty much bare of any
balloons, streamers, banners, etc. but there were several tables covered
with silk tablecloths and the finest food and drink in all of Medievia.
One table held a pot of imported gryphon stew, some waybread, a wedge of
Trellorian goat's cheese, smoked Genesian banelar, some food created by the
Gods! and a punch bowl of spiced elderberry juice. The next table held sunbaked
chocolate chip cookies with gooey melted chocolate chips (courtesy of Soleil),
chocolate brownies, a box of imported chocolates, sugary cookies with white
frosting sprinkled in red glitter and golden pieces of caramel (the
last two courtesy of Caeraela).
All of this was served in egg halves. Stylish, non? Apparently, Marious
had a growing collection of cracked catacomb eggs and, not being one to
let things go to waste, decided to serve everyone with bowls made from
egg shells. Even the cups were made of egg halves, can you believe
that? Waste not want not I always say and believe me, none of this food was
going to waste. (Any comments about 'waist' gets zapped...). Everyone
there was well fed to say the least.
While eyeing the last piece of caramel, I bumped into (literally) the
captain of the GoOmBa Stompas, Marithar. After wiping the Genesian
banelar off his armor and curious title, he invited me to sit with him.
Tall, dark, and heroed.. who could resist? He led me back to a table where
I was introduced to Flayith and Zelgaddis. They were in the middle of
swapping dragon stories and showing scars. Apparently, Zelgaddis heroed
while fighting the green dragon, Gothpygek and has the scars to prove
it. If there's one thing that leaves a nasty scar, it's a dragon bite.
Flayith happened to also hero while fighting a dragon. While running the
dragonlair of Aniaxon the ruby dragon with the mighty Ginthrum, Flayith
gained enough dragon points after slashing the beast right before it
fled its lair. From what I hear, neither dragon was too happy about the
turn of events.
Marithar's heroing story didn't involve dragons, but it was just as
death defying. He was battling Wittermark Elves in a hurricane! Just 1450
hours and a couple of elves later, Marithar heroed in just under a year
and three months. Wonder if he's single?
Congrats to all the new heroes!
