Palanthas - A contingent of Knights of Solamnia was ambushed on Misham as they were travelling along the Knight's High Road on their way to the High Clerist's Tower. According to Lord diVila, Lord Knight of Palanthas, the attackers were goblins.

"The lads were attacked without warning while travelling through a narrow stretch along the Knight's High Road," said Lord Knight diVila. "The attackers were well organized and were aided by unknown individuals who used magic against my men."

According to the Lord Knight, no knights were killed in the ambush, although several were injured. The injured knights are now under the care of clerics of Mishakal. Two White Robed Wizards were travelling with the Knights of Solamnia and they have both confirmed that the goblin attackers used magic.

"The magic user eluded our divination magic but, judging by the spells cast, we're certain that the spellcaster was very powerful," said Trissa Rostar. "He invaded the minds of our Solamnic allies and he hurled fireballs, which indicates a power not usually available to goblins."

Lord Knight diVila has now assembled a company of knights and plan to venture into the mountains and find the goblins. Meanwhile, the Senate of Palanthas offers a reward of 25 steel crowns for each goblin killed.
