Whilst adventuring through the Forests on the Lerilin continent, a party consisting of myself, Saybel, Pakal, Peven and Yendu heard a series of ominous metallic sounds echoing from the location of the Volcano.
Our curoisity got the better of us, and we decided to head over to the Volcano to see what was occuring there. When we arrived there, we immediately came upon a party of Brigands.
Brigand incursion aren't at all uncommon, so we decided to take it upon ourselves to dismantle their camp - while there were a number of them, we were confident we could take them on. We pressed on forwards towards their camp in order to remove the threat.
When we arrived there, we were greated with a worrying sight. The brigands had captured 2 Skeleton Archers, a Bracken and even worse. A Wraith.
They had left a few scribbled notes on the floor. We did not have time to read them properly in the heat of battle, but the gist of what they had written was that they only just managed to capture the creatures they had, and it would have been impossible to catch any more since they could barely control the one they had captured.
After we cleared out the Brigand, we knew we couldn't leave a Wraith alone, as it would escape without it's captors to hold it there. We killed the Bracken guarding the enterance to the Wraith and began battling against it, attempting to kill the Skeleton Archers first. While this tactic was met with moderate success, it appeared the Wraith was just toying with us. After it realised the possibility of us defeating it, it killed us all with some otherworldly magic.
After killing us, it escaped into the Lerilin Forest.
The Wraith seemed to be stronger than your average Wraith, now it roams Lerilin forest, doing who knows what? Even though it presents a threat, it seems to be much faster than we anticipated, I expect we have no chance of hunting it down and we instead must wait for it to reveal itself and corner it then to fight it.
This is sombre news I understand, but we must remain vigilant.
