Anyone have a record or even vague memory on what occurred during Episode 8 about oh....2 and a half years ago?

The following threads may help to jog some memories, perhaps we can piece it together?

    Sayer writes a report that same night in

Just Shy of Seven Years Later...


Sythus [Spring]
Valley Year 237
Duthash Zinnyas Basque [11 May]

Evening:

Please note: it is Sunday, September 2 2012 as I try to capture what went on that fateful night. Sorry about the lag, and therefore the must-be-expected vague details…

Please, anyone feel free to add details that are now lost to my dementia-addled mind


The usual nighttime peace of Threshold was shattered by calls for help. More specifically, help with fire.

On the east side of town, a small number of residences that were situated against the hills were ablaze. Citizens were rushing to help in any way they could, and they were joined by those members of the newly-formed Protectorate as were on-hand.

However, as the Companions raced to the conflagration, it became apparent that this was no accidental fire, and that those who were responsible for it were still about. Killing.

As the townsfolk went about their civic duty, they came under attack from two sources: one from unseen archers in the hills. The other from huge wolf-sized rat-like creatures that were roaming the chaotic streets attacking at will.

A significant fight ensured between the Protectorate and these evil-doers, with much in the way of casualty suffered by the Protectorate. One of the hidden archers was captured, all the others (that we know of) were killed, and all of what later came to be known by the Companions as "Carrion Eaters" were slain.

Note: it is this session and combat that birthed the now-legendary crossbow bolt with the attached note that says "Sorry!", complete with a heart. Fired from Kit's crossbow, of course.
