The conquest of Zel’an is complete. The site yielded its secrets of sand and glass to the diligence and skill of the party. Three reports are filed, by different individuals, to document the completion of this task. Emas’Thaker looms on the horizon, but there are also troubles close to hand…
One missive is filed in the light of a fresh dawn, and sent in daylight to a faraway temple. There it will be read by aged men, crowned with divinity and wisdom. This is The Securing of the Portal.
One offers up a letter, nearly in supplication. There is fear in the writer, but it does not show. So close to what has happened, she understands the severity of what has been discovered. If she can make the master of the Stone Tower see this, she may yet earn a higher station. This is A Study of Glass and Sand.
A third…is not sent, but is instead a speech given on bended knee by a scout to its master. This is The Shadow of the Tyrant.
