Subj: The cleansing of Shastaan

The Ascendril were stirred to action in early Variach, when an orphaned
trainee called for the Archmage to speak with her. Her brother, she
revealed, was the leader of a group of Kelsys survivors called the Pact,
and needed the guild's help in retaking the ruins of Shastaan from a
hostile force.

Kerryn and Damonicus joined the Archmage Xavin as he met with Hasaan of
Kelsys, the Pact leader, to plan an assault on the village ruins; after
deliberations, the battle was joined, as Pact irregulars and mages
charged into ranks of deformed villagers and strange, babbling cultists.

With much loss and bloodshed, Hasaan and the two Ascendril, along with
Damonicus of the Sentinel Pride, made it to the shoreline, where two men
stood on a floating platform, guarding a machine that dug deep into the
elemental vortex. Xavin revealed that these were the same pair
responsible for the stabilizing of the Iernian Fracture, and went to
speak with them.

Diplomacy sadly failed, and Veid and Isomann attacked the group, only to
be struck down swiftly. The machine in turn was disabled, detonating
violently and blasting the ruins almost flat. With the threat removed,
the Pact moved in and established themselves in the village, swearing
their debt to the Ascendril would be repaid before sealing off the
settlement for rebuilding.

Penned by my hand on the 9th of Variach, in the year 365 MA.
