The Conch Champion.  Free of Thinking.

Is that leather Meriwether?

The Conch Champion can exclusively reveal that the famed leather and fur company Meriwether has received approval from West Netheril Trading Company to build a tannery and attached workshop near Conch.  This facility will be placed in the swamps west of Conch to reduce tannery odours reaching the city.  Meriwether is renowned in both Upper and Lower Netheril for producing furs, hides and leathers of peerless quality and Conch is most fortunate to have its own producer of these products now. 

"Whether you are a scholar needing delicate but durable leather to bind your books, a warrior seeking functional but attractive leather armour with spotted fur trim, or a noble wishing for a luxurious feathered cloak or purse then Meriwether is the place for you!" said tannery overseer Hud Trueman.  "We also have a very small number of hunting, security and workshop positions available for exceptionally skilled men and women," he continued.  Meriwether is known to have very generous wages and benefits, so these positions are sure to fill up quickly.

Special report provided to the Conch Champion by Diana Sable

The Isle of Death has always been an issue for the Conch Council and my family, from its days of a prison and forced labour camp to what it has become these days. The Isle is now full of swamp creatures and undead but this was not always the case ...

When my Great Great Grandfather Denvar Sable discovered the isle, it was a small rich forest with many animals living there and nothing like it looks like today from his early reports. There was rumours and tales from the local barbarian tribes that this was a sacred site, said that some relics had been washed down from the Columns of the Sky and the mysterious Cave of Lost Soul or placed on the isle. Over time the isle grew in size as the river deposited soil and rocks splitting the river into two, now looking the way it does to day.

Of course back in the old days these rumours had been dismissed and plan made to make a prison on the isle, away from the main city with its natural benefits been the fast flowing river. But something when wrong ...

Originally set up as a prison and forced labour camp, the head of the guards who had been given wardenship of the colony had more sinister plans for it. The prisoners here were given little in the way of tools, clothing, shelter or food and those that complained were tortured and killed for the entertainment of the Warden and to feed his dark desires. Through this cruelty and the inhuman treatment of the prisoners, it led to widespread disease, abuse of power, violence, and even cannibalism. Rumours have always been around that he seeks the power of the gods or was been controlled by another to obtained relics of power.

I have been living in a shack close to the isle and been watching, search and collecting evidence that there is more to the isle than we first thought. An Cult of the Dead has mostly taken control of the isle and is using the undead in mines on the top of the isle, seeking something that was buried long ago. What this is and why it is being done I don not known, but it can only mean bad news to the City of Conch.

So I ask for your help, I seek to reclaim some or if not all the isle in my families name plus the removal of this threat

Dear Community,

We will be removing the password and wiping the server soon. We have made changes to the XP system and Loot drops. Updates have been added to the Start Area and more Lore added to most areas where needed.

Sadly we haven't been able to get to everything. Buggy spells are still an issue, as it is still a work in progress ( depending on time and the team ). We have not added the Item Level Restriction System or the Cloak changing system.

You will no longer be able to enchant in the Crafting system and have already removed access to these special areas. This is to bring some balance back to the items on the server. I hope to look at the Crafting and up the properties from materials, as we see how the balance goes.

Moving forward, we are adding a new sync server for any hak changes which will affect any new players.

So the ball is now in your court, so if you want to play with your friends or advise others that we will be open to play. We will advise a date for this to be open when I can confirm such I have a Server Plot in mind for those looking for that type of thing around the Isle of Death, which is not a one shot event but looking to be complete over a number of months. Trying to keep this DM free as possible, because as you might have noticed our team is smaller again but will try to be around to fix simple stuff and issues. On that we are without a main scripter, so major changes will not be happening moving forward.

We have taken feedback and tried to make these changes you requested but not all can be done.

Have Fun!

Stories and reports of more than normal amount of zombies being seen in the Graveyard area of Conch are of a concern. Some say it is The Mourners gang of the Slums but other say their must be more behind it.

A challenge has been set in the Slums Arena by a family of Half Orcs ... The Briqs ! Two brothers and a sister, it is said the sister is the eldest and has other skills the other two younger brothers do not possess. Make sure you do not become one of their trophies.

[a wax-sealed letter has been sent]

Dear Master Rinsley,

   I have arrived to the allegedly rebellious city of Conch as per your request.
The climate is colder, the crops being grown are resilient species. Rains are frequent. The carriage has passed along far too many marshes on its way to this outpost.
I reckon I might prioritise inspecting the state of the local agriculture more in-depth. Well-fed and safe citizens naturally gain higher interest in other areas of life, as says Natkeís pyramid, allowing for more recognition of potential improvement and investments around the city later on. I shall consult.

   Are the venues back at home progressing well? With respect, please remind overseer Relyn of the delphion contact I left him with. In the warm cities, the youth loves nothing more than splashing water. The exterior cafe in the planned complex could benefit from an additional source of customers, if he and the Sashelan priest can settle on something. I cannot be their middle-man any longer, however, I trust the two and I am excited to hear about the projectís progress in a few moonís time.

   However, dear Master whose nest Iíve left. Allow your fledgeling to express her gratitude for the decades of training under your and the Orderís lead.
I have already noticed several matters to potentially approach my ranking seniors about. As soon as I gain my footing within the city, that is.
As have been the first wise words youíve shared with your fledgeling.
And your words and teachings I shall obey. Iíd not wish to subject you to the carriage journey at your venerable age merely to scold a student with a pole.

My heart is with all of you back at home.

Yours faithfully,

Moon Elf
Intern of the West Netherese Trading Company

✦ Height: 5í0Ē [152cm]
✦ Hair: Dark Indigo, Loosely Braided
✦ Eyes: Cornflower Blue
✦ Skin: Ivory
✦ Attire: Suit in the colors of the West Netherese Trading Company. Accessories are a brooch, a vibrant scarf and a ring.

The elf is as proud of her pure silver elven lineage as is of her later endeavours and stay in the mixed environment of Arupal, a steadily-growing town located at a fork of a trading road by the northern shore of the Sea of Fallen Stars.

This fortunate mix has resulted in a confident individual, skillful in the fields of finance and outsourcing. Even though her friends and associates reside countless miles from Conch to the South-East, the grown elven has few, if any, concerns. One might attribute it to her nearly second century spent in a fast-paced human environment in which even lifelong friendships are fleeting, another might assume the infamous elven haughtiness and a sense of superiority to be at play.

The Conch Champion.  Independent & Accurate, Always.

I Still Hate This Job
I must say I am dismayed that seemingly not a single soul in Conch is willing to relieve me of this burden of editing my own newspaper.  But fine.  I will do it my bloody self if I must.  At least I can say that the recent months have been calm in our fair city.  The threat of war seems to have receded and our greatest danger right now is that of dreadful self-appointed comedians abusing the professionalism of our city proclaimers.  That said, I pride my reporters on being skilled at dredging up dismaying news no matter how good things appear (surely nobody reads a newspaper for GOOD news?).  So please read on and enjoy their efforts!

-R. Hurstport, owner and acting editor.

Mysteries of the Gods
The Conch Champion has been informed that all three Tychean temples in Conch have recently added sealed vaults to their crypts.  While we are a mere newspaper and have no right or interest to meddle in the affairs of the gods, loyal and longstanding parishioners of the temples have complained to the Champion about being forbidden to enter these new rooms.  Nor have parishioners been provided with any explanation of the sudden need for secrecy and security.  This reporter has contacted all three temples to query the matter.  All three gave the same reply that it is an internal church matter and of no concern to this newspaper or the general public. 

-S. Hellsworth, reporter.

Massacre at Hilltop
Yet another tragedy has befallen the halfling village of Hilltop.  A halfling warrior by the name of Lotho Thistlevale went berserk upon returning from a long journey to the west and slew several humans who were in Hilltop on business.  Then he turned his wrath upon those fellow halflings who sought to restrain or pacify him.  Differing accounts say that he was then either slain by the Hilltop militia or narrowly escaped them.  Conch's West Netheril Trading Company had some members in Hilltop at the time and they were amongst those slain.  WNTC has informed the Champion that they have sent a letter to Hilltop demanding the resurrection of their staff and compensation for their trauma. 

-A. Nutt, reporter.

Secrets of the Wizard Tower
The normally reclusive wizard Ptolemy of West Conch has asked for brave adventurers to go to his tower and face the challenge of his "Room of Doors".  Ptolemy told the Conch Champion that adventurers will find both danger and rewards in this room beneath his tower.  This newspaper can only speculate about what awaits any intrepid adventurers who answer his call.  We invite any who survive their visit to write a letter to the editor to explain their experience.
