Palanthas – The witches of the Circle of the Living Krynn are missing.
Nearly a week ago, the witches entered the Shoikan Grove just after sunset with the intention of breaking its curse. None of the women have been seen since.
Melody Penniweather, housekeeper of Winegaard Manor was on hand when the witches entered the grove. She told the Herald, "The strangeness started the minute Lady Freyorn and the other ladies entered those cursed trees. The wind whipped up outta nowhere and clouds formed overhead. That shadowy copy o the Tower of High Sorcery flickered for a moment. Seconds later the trees began ta alternate from green ta black; as if a battle was taking place for the soul of the trees. Lightnin' struck the ground jus in front o me. Ah hightailed home. Ah jus hope the ladies are okay."
A City Guard official told the Herald, "If those women were foolish enough to enter that accursed grove of trees, then whatever happens to them is their own fault. The City Guard has its hands full keeping order in the streets. I pray for their safety but at this time there are no plans in the works to enter the grove to find Freyorn and her bunch."
