ADVENTURERS FIND LOOT, MYSTERIES

The party of guards associated with Sandru Vhiski’s caravan recently returned to Sandpoint with a massive chest full of Tian treasures. Sources report that the cache has something to do with local notable Ameiko Kaijitsu’s family. Further bulletins as events warrant.

CARAVAN OWNER SAVES SANDPOINT!

Local caravan owner/operator Sandru Vhiski reports that, operating under his authority, his caravan guards have defeated the notorious Chief Gutwad and scattered the Licktoad Goblin tribe.

Interviewed by the Variety’s intrepid reporters on the Lost Coast Road south of Sandpoint, Vhiski stated, "Sandpoint’s citizens can rest easy now that I’ve got this collection of goblin ears! Remember that only one caravan offers freedom from goblins and freedom from needless markups: Sandru’s . . . um, I need to come up with a better name . . . “Sandru’s Traveling Emporium?”

Yet it remains to be seen whether this act of undoubted heroism will improve Vhiski’s reputation locally, which has long been tarnished by his family’s alleged ties to the Sczarni, an alleged organized crime syndicate.

By I said “alleged”, please don’t firebomb my office, Jana Riverweed.

SOGGY RIVER MONSTER REAL?

The Soggy River Monster has been seen again, this time by a fisherman along the New Fish Trail in Brinestump. The fisherman says the creature has a huge mouth and legs that bend backwards like a dog’s. It was devouring a dead goblin on the other side of the river, which is how the fisherman managed to escape. As the fisherman was alone at the time of the sighting, the Variety has not been able to independently verify the existence of the Soggy River Monster.

GOBLIN BOUNTY REINSTATED

With the city militia unable to patrol the trackless expanse of Brinestump, Sheriff Belor Hemlock has announced the restoration of Sandpoint’s old “goblin bounty.” The town will pay 10 gp for every fresh goblin ear delivered to the town hall — with an additional reward of 300 gp for the group that brings in the head of the Licktoad Tribe’s leader, Chief Gutwad!

Regular readers of the Daily Variety will recall that the bounty was suspended several years ago after the unfortunate drowning deaths of several too-young adventurers looking for goblins along the coast.

ECCENTRIC SWAMP HALFLING KEEPS SNAKES

The self-appointed “Warden of Brinestump”, Walthus Proudstump, was seen in town last week buying milk to feed his snake hatchlings! “Yup,” our anonymous source reports, “He coddles them just like my niece coddles her pet rabbit Fluffles. Takes a special kind of weirdo to keep snakes as pets, if you ask me.”

DRAGON SIGHTED?

Some travelers coming from up coast say they saw a dragon – a big black one – flying above central Mosswood. This reporter hopes they were drunk! We definitely don’t need a dragon anywhere close to town.

FIRES OVER BRINESTUMP!

Just last night, another round of colorful explosions burst over the Brinestump Marsh south of Sandpoint. The Licktoad Goblins have somehow managed to arm themselves with a considerable supply of fireworks and are putting the FLASH in NEWSFLASH! Some folks say they’ve even learned how to make them, and that they’re getting ready to set Sandpoint ablaze! This reporter remains unconvinced.

Several merchant caravans and travelers have been attacked by goblins recently. According to victims, the damage caused by horses panicking at the sight and sound of the fireworks is as destructive as the goblins themselves. As only Sandpointers and other Lost Coasters have been hit so far, Mayor Deverin and High Priest Zantus have been unable to convince Magnimar to send assistance.
