The Malvarma had been quiet for months now. We knew they were up to something, because of all the times they had previously attacked us, especially at Viridian Rise, Rithwic, and Arwic. Peace and quiet seem to always come at a huge cost in Dereth however. Today the Malvarma came in force and destroyed what many of the adventurers called home. Adventurers Haven fell late in the evening and we retrieved all that we could amidst the chaos. Few were lost in the intense heat of the battle.
Till we find a more efficient way to battle the Malvarma and their creations, we need a new stronghold. We have repurposed an old Radiant Blood storage space. Nuhmudira has warded it against all but Isparians and the allied races. This new "Safehold" should suffice as a safe place for all to rest and trade their wares. I will continue to monitor the activity of the Malvarma, and we will find a way to stop them. The down time has been great for our findings on the new Jollium ore that has been found in the Artic North. The Arcanum has found a way to utilize it for both weapons and armor. We will however have to see if the adventurers can help us gather materials to build a forge capable of withstanding the heat and energies needed to make it into something malleable and less brittle than it’s base form.
Artic North Base Established
Thanks to the continued efforts of the adventurers, a new base has sprung up. Here at this base in the Artic North, one of the coldest places we could find, we built the forge. The cold of the North provides a strong ward against the forges heat. After some time we have learned to work the ore into a desirable set of weapons and armor. The forge was key and now that it has been established, we can really get to work. A few members of the Arcanum have take up residence here. Talk to the Arcanum members to pick up daily's for supplies supplies for the new Jollium armor and weapons. These new weapons are able to be made in several variations and all class types. The new Jollium armor will take further work to to support all the different classes. The base armor can be further improved with Runes and Sigils. After some time I returned for my rewards. A few days of this should suffice. I have gathered my supplies.
The uses of Jollium continue to be explored and their reaction with other items found around Dereth. Jollium Armor & Weapons have been created and indeed weapon upgrades are being perfected! Attempts have been made to further upgrade armor, but thus far has failed. Others are exploring the use of Jollium in other areas, including Jollium-Infused Bandages.
