Report by Sergeant Gummidge relating to the recent Dark Fey activity in Country Clearwater
It is with great satisfaction that I can report the successful stamping out of the recent Dark Fey activity in our district of Clearwater county. As you are aware, there had recently been a lot of dark Fey attacks, which had resulted in damage to property and a general decline in the local economy (Herbalists not trading, Woodcutters losing their equipment, Farmers’ crops being ruined).

About the reinforcements!
Although a patrol was sent from Shadyvale to support the legion outpost here, this sorry band of drunks and social misfits did little more than turn up, drink rum, stumble into the woods and then turn up a few hours later wearing magic mushroom necklaces.

I would like to commend the brave actions of New recruit Dobby Parts and propose that he be given the rank of Private. If you agree with my proposal, I would also suggest that we send Private Parts to Shadyvale for additional instruction and training. I am sure Private Parts will fit in with the other Privates there and they will rub along well together.
Finally, I would like to mention one last thing. Although the dark Fey have stopped appearing, many people have started to complain about strange nightmares. I feel almost foolish to mention this except that all the dreams seem to have a common theme.
The dreamer starts the dream feeling very happy because they have defeated the bogeyman. However, the feeling of satisfaction is replaced by a sense of foreboding as the dead bogeyman opens its eyes, crosses its arms and says in a low hiss, “Did you kill the bogeyman? My mummy is really, really upset with you. Wait ‘till she finds you…”
