The Steinkreis Times, Volume 15
STEINKREIS NEWS, VOLUME FIFTHTEEN
HEADLINES- brought to you by your local News Gnome
Rumours Of An Eternal Struggle
Submitted by an unknown source we are scourering the island looking to put an end to the rumours. Your local news Gnome urges the citizens of Steinkreis and Thain to ignore scaremongering and false prophecies of a so-called Blood War that wages between Demon and Devil. Thain will not be drawn into this fictional battle of nightmares.
Regardless of any problems, the land strives on its weather. Farmers and citizens, especially those in lowlands are expressing problems with the unending downpour that Thain has not seen the likes of since the aftermath of the Battle of Brothers. Could the island still be healing? Or is someone, or something else responsible?.
Hamley Festival Due
Hamley's resident bards are hoping to host a festival soon. All who come to enjoy and give life to the day are welcome. Plays, displays and performances expected in conjunction with Steinkreis' Opera House staff. Stores, stands and merchants welcome to join in the festivities. All enquiries to the Road House Inn, Hamley.
The Hammersong Raid
Citizens heading toward Hammersong are being reminded to be cautious. Recent raids by Duergar have intensified but representitives assure that the Halls of Hammersong will never be breached by man, beast or monster.
The Right Sized Pact
The RSP will no longer stand for sizest remarks made by tallfolk. Half-pint, Inchy, Shortstuff may be found amusing. The sheer mockery holds back smaller persons from being taken seriously. We will be visiting workplaces all over to ensure that there is sizial equality.
One foreman at a small grainstore commented "If I sees them blighters again, I'll give 'em a thick ear. One of the buggers hit me inna stones just 'cause I told him to grow up. Spiteful demons, never trust 'em I sez. We don't have any trouble down 'ere with their lot." Public opinion seems varied and we will watch their campaign with interest.
Displays of affection are not uncommon or a danger but some citizens are getting concerned seeing their heroes (or villains) idols turn from being fiery beacons of inspiration to icky smoochers. From the creative bright sparks that brought you the Riggs-Away, comes another shiny fangled bit of kit to stamp out those flames of passion. The Smellter! This creation is a splash on lotion made by mystic monks on distance mountains after eons of brewing. Just dab a little on your favoured Hero or Heroine and watch the admirers flee. All this for a nominal fee!
