Subj: Juxa Steelhew and the fall of Hashan

The peaceful existence of the village of Hashan was shattered this month
as the Regent Ogba's prodigal child returned. Wielding the reforged and
legendary Demon Blade as well as an army of Troll irregulars, Juxa
Steelhew took the city by force and stormed the throneroom itself,
demanding the heads of the royal family - her brother and mother.

A bloody confrontation ensued as Koggab, heir to the throne, clashed
with the Vagrant Queen, and their fight was witnessed by a large
congregation of adventurers. For his troubles, the Prince of Hashan was
split in half by the thirsty sword and unceremoniously kicked aside. The
throneroom erupted into chaos as Juxa then advanced on her mother, and
despite the Regent's God-given powers of lightning, the Demon Blade
buried itself in her flesh and took her life. All-out warfare broke out
as defenders of the Regent and deniers of Juxa's crown assailed the
Vagrant Queen's troops, but when the dust finally settled, Steelhew was
left as the unopposed ruler of the ruined city.

Unopposed, that is, except for Lord Damariel and his priest. Only the
direct intervention of the Heartseeker, Iosyne, was sufficient to drive
off the God, although it seemed that the Demon Blade itself was enough
to strike fear into His heart. With the enemies of the new Troll empire
driven off, the Vagrant Queen now fortifies Hashan and organizes her
people - it seems that war in the north is now inevitable.
