The Hillfort of Ashben has had troubles with an unwanted visitor. The Trader’s Alliance, which became part of the fort just a few fortnights ago, brought a large group of halflings with it. This event attracted an underground predator. This mindless beast has attacked the outskirts of town around the moats, interested in the halflings’ meat. Felix Strongfoot, leader of the halfling traders, told Sir Kevan, the military leader of Hillfort, that he must stop this beast soon or else the fort’s trading outpost is certain to disappear and leave for safer grounds.
