Citizens of Elmerton! Please heed these words!
As some of our men were running tests and mapping out the area of Elmerton in the winter months we made a rather shocking discovery: A large and odd stone not of this world was discovered in the woods.
Our initial tests have determined that it is certainly not of this world. It is like nothing we have ever seen, but a local shaman of sorts who calls himself Matrius claims that it bears a resemblance the surface of the moon, but it is different somehow. Our best scientists have come up with two plausible theories.
1. This is sort of a piece of the moon that has somehow made it through the Void and has fallen from above.
2. During the battle you and your fellow Elmertonians had with the “Moon Monster” a piece of the monster was fired into the woods and lodged where this rock now sits.
We are warning you of the presence of this stone for many reasons, chief among them is this news which, I must confess, is a bit dire. Orcs,wood trolls, wild men and a variety of other forest creatures
have begun to worship the stone as either a deity or the symbol of one. They pray to it and fiercely defend it. They have become increasingly aggressive and have forced us to stop work in the area. We are working on recovering/moving said stone, as its far in order to make the area safer and more hospitable for our workmen.
At this point, we cannot do more than warn you. That being said, if someone does wind up recovering this stone we would most appreciate it if it was brought to us for research. A reward of some note would not be out of the question.
