Kender Leaving Palanthas in Droves
by Darcwulf, Staff Writer
Palanthas - Misham morning, less than a single day after the battle with the lich necromancer Jhelaun, it was noticed that there were already significantly less kender in the city. The Herald spoke with a few kender about the whereabouts of their kinsman.
"I heard that there is this big celebration somewhere," said Corey Finklesnoot with a pout. "But they didn't invite me! You see, I tied Tasslehoff Burfoot's laces together the other day. He said he would make me pay for it. I bet he's somewhere right now, drinking and laughing at me!"
"The brouhaha yesterday was great fun," said a Tasslehoff Burrfoot. "But there is just so much going on. Your town is nice enough and all, but you can't expect us to stay forever. Just the other day, I heard about this town of goblins somewhere over to the east. It's supposed to have been built inside a fire mountain. What's more these goblins can fly! Maybe they went to find it, that's where I'm headed!"
"We have things to do," said Devon Twilleagher who was dressed in mourning out of respect for his cousin, Vinnii Pryce. "For instance, Vinnii wants me to go find my Aunt and Uncle and tell them.... the news." When asked why he talked of his cousin in the present tense, he gave this reply. "She's still here. I've tried to convince her to go along, but she says she's gonna wait for awhile." Devon Twilleagher is a kender nightstalker, a mystic with ability to interact with the dead.
"We came to help you," said Mercy Bluesky, cleric of Mishakal. "And we did. Now it's time for us to go help someone else."
