As told by Ploon Kloovs:
‘Twas well over 3 months ago (perhaps 10 tendays) that I first arrived from Proskur at Shadowdale, where I fell in with other work-seekers at the local inn. Not all of them were as legitimate and honest as I, which I’ve come to learn is common among tall folk. But my Genuine (Guaranteed!) All-Purpose Miracle Cures weren’t selling well, and the first big job to reach us seemed interesting enough. The short of it is that we single-handedly saved the village of Stormpemhauder. Little else of consequence was achieved, though some related work for tall folk saw them providing us with land in the area. I plan to use this as the site for a new Gnomish orphanage, for orphaned Gnomes.
Shortly after, a chance encounter with a vampire killed me.
We followed this with some wandering out through the woods to the East. The tall ones made an awful fuss about it being dangerous, but we were fine! We slew a few dragons and saved a few more Gnomes in need, so I decided we’d achieved enough to warrant going home again. Annoyingly, one of my Human underlings had got its grubby paws on a cursed sword, and we had a damn fuss getting him rid of it.
In doing so, a chance encounter with a vampire killed me.
We now stand ready to return to Stormpemhauder, to rescue it from a far greater evil (I’m told) than ever before.
