[ATE] Dragon's Horde

The foul smell of brimstone is once again starting to upset the peace of the lands and unsettling rumblings can be heard in the distance. The whispered word is that the evil spawn that once ravished the land at their whim, are once again descending on this fair barony.

So sharpen you your weapons and spend your last moments with your loved ones as these ravenous beasts have been known to devour all but a lucky few who oppose them. Will you be the one that will live on in history as the defeater of one of these beasts? Or will your bones bleach and return to the earth with only the lament of your loved one to remember you by, if they survive the onslaught.  The day draws near so ready yourself!

That evening all citizens surviving the devouring creatures are invited to share their misery and loss by gathering together and sharing music and dance to drive away the fear if only for a short time.  There is planned to be an exchange of goods no longer useful, or surplus and an auction of items to raise funds to help support the barony in these trying times.  The day after the great slaughter, dragon or human, there will be the clash of monsters. The denizens of the dark pits will be fighting over the bones and offal left from the previous days horrific battles.  So beware while looking for the body or parts of your loved ones.  There still will be grave danger to be found upon the field.
