Heroes of Hillsfar
Rumours and Information 8
- The Emerald Enclave is recruiting griffons and griffon riders for the anticipated battle with Hillsfar. They are mainly used at the moment for messengers and transport. The griffon riders are used sparingly and not close to Hillsfar or settlements, also they are avoiding flying over or near the roads where possible and definitely not in numbers so the First Lord/Red Plumes are unaware of the existence of the griffon riders, or if they do become aware then they will underestimate their numbers and capability.
- Many mad drow have appeared out of the Underdark, fighting with anyone they contact or even sometimes each other. They fight during the day, and don’t use tactics. They are being slaughtered by any kind of opposition with fighting skill.
- The braincap fungi can only grow on the rotting remains of various other fungi AND in the presence of faerzress. This makes growing it on the surface problematic. However in theory it could be grown in a cave close to the surface that has faerzress seeping up from the Underdark.
- The braincap fungi can only be eaten safely once per day where it will prevent / cure one instance of the madness brought on by demonic taint. Any further consumption will still cure madness, but risks hallucinogenic side effects.
