… Increased volcanic activity on the Island of Fire prompted the Directors of the NRRI to request an updated survey. Dantor the Scout undertook the bounty and reported that the Fire Elemental known as Surtheim appears to have weakened significantly in strength. The cause is not known at this time. The NRRI has put in a request for an investigation.
Dantor also noted that while investigating the crater he found that a landslide has exposed what appears to be a mine entrance. The entrance was collapsed so he could not investigate it further or discern where it might lead. The NRRI…Imperial Scout's Report, June 33 A.R…
Something strange sighted deep in the Eastern Deadlands; an object lay in the middle of a canyon surrounded by numerous grotesque, twisted trees and the minions of the Withered Aegis. Due to the distance, my fear of discovery and the swirling maelstrom overhead, I could not discern many details. I did not recognize the creatures, but they appeared to be undead as they walked with a strange gait. Nor could I make out the nature of the object itself, except that it was as black as night and was nearly as large as those who stood near it … One thing, however, was clear and that was that they were protecting it. It is certainly worthy of further investigation, though I advise extreme caution.
