LOCAL DISAPPEARANCES SOLVED! THE DANGER BENEATH OUR FEET!
by Sallow Fernsby
Only six days after the disappearances of 4 local orphans it appears a group of adventurers, now tentatively being called the Seekers of Cauldera, have located the source of this secret scourge threatening our fair city. The loss of these orphans was just the latest in a string of mysterious disappearances that has been quietly plaguing Cauldera for several months. Our sources within the Lord-Mayor’s manor claim that a joint effort by the Churches of Iomedae and Wee Jas proved successful in uncovering a slave ring working under the very foundations of our noble burg. It appears an entrance to the all but forgotten gnomish enclave of Jzadirune was being used by foul creatures of the Lands Below to kidnap and sell innocent citizens and their property. Though it saddens me to report it, it appears that our city’s own master locksmith Keygan Ghelve, is being held on charges of sedition and resistance of the law for involvement with the kidnappings.Will the Council close this access way to evil once and for all? Can our citizens sleep safely knowing a path to horrors unknown sits open below their feet? It is our hope to get to the bottom of this startling development and report on it further.
