As the sun begins to set, there is a tremendous flash of light visible at the centre of the mountains. After a moment, a heart-flutteringly deep roar bellows across the north of Pargon. It finishes with a literally earth-shattering crack. Enormous clouds of dust rise from the centre of the Ondo Mountains.
Barely an hour later, Lorax One-Eye of the Rodera visits Harwood, Haran of all the tribes. Their meeting is painfully efficient. Two minutes later, Lorax returns to the Zeppelin, and flyers are distributed.
Farrek Char, Mother Mollal and Lorax One-Eye of the Roderan council are looking for Heroes for a dangerous expedition. A 10r reward is offered. Primarily this is a search for a suspected magical artefact, believed to be connected with the large explosion in the Ondo Mountains. If such an item is found, a bonus of 20r (per person) will be paid for retrieving it on top of the initial payment for undertaking the expedition.
