Pashin - If reports are to be believed a dekare of Wyvern Legionnaires was soundly routed by an army of squirrels.

Knotwood Squirrelbrother a local kender mystic claims to have personally led an army of at least a hundred squirrels against the minotaurs, when the latter tried to chop down his tree fort. He told the Herald, "Those treekillers were threatening to chop down my tree and use it for firewood. That tree is over 2000 years old and is my home, and that of my dray [squirrel pack]. We couldn't bear the thought of them chopping it down, so we rallied the other drays in the area and gave the minos what for."

People on the street seemed to find the reports amusing, but of little validity. Kamel Karn, Khurish Rug Merchant told the Herald, "That Knotwood is a funny one. This is one story I wish was true, but come on, a kender and a bunch of squirrels beating up on minotaurs; the very notion is ludicrous."

The reports of the battle could not be confirmed and representatives of the Wyvern Legion declined to comment, saying only that the "little pests will be scourged from our forest." However several healers in the Shrine of Elir-Sana report treating members of the Wyvern Legion for what appeared to be bite marks.
