Hello, I’m Branwyn Two-Moon of Clan Lightridge and these are the Ersatz Echoes of Eastfjord Harbor for the week of Gnome Waning, 2020.
While Irized smolders and burns, I must turn my attention back to Pinecrest.
The last two days of Gnome Waning have been unseasonably warm, but as the sun set, the temperature has dropped. Expect snow up to your knees in the next two days, more if you’re in the mountains. Indeed, all indications are that the mountain passes will be unpassable by midweek.
I for one have stocked up on hot chocolate from Rico Roastery, but you can catch the new flavor at Gneech’s House of Tea as well… if you can get there in the morning. Please don’t take unnecessary risks in the extreme cold!
Harbor traffic has increased in Eastfjord Harbor with another northern port closing. Meanwhile, the guards are looking for caravans heading for the northern and southern routes into the valley to redirect them to eastern entrances. I’m told the houndlings have helped place torches along the tunnels and reinforced them. I fully expect to hear stories of lost children rescued by houndlings.
On the eastern end of the valley, the villages around Valleywatch Keep report lights moving through the castle at night. The East Valley Trekkers have sent a group to investigate and we expect to hear more next week.
As you have probably guessed from the sniffling and gravelly voice, I have a cold of sorts. It’s been shifting between runny nose and coughing to dry, scratchy throat and congestion all week. I’m relying on local herbalists to be able to breathe easily, and it’s time for another dose.
The Ersatz Echoes of Eastfjord Harbor are brought to you by Red Wombat Tea Company, purveyors of fine and otherworldly tea. Red Wombat: We Dig Tea.
Also brought you by the Cordellian Embassy, who are having an open house the first day of Dryad Resting. Come learn about Cordellian culture!
These have been the Ersatz Echoes of Eastfjord Harbor for the week of Gnome Waning, 2020. Take care, and stay warm.
