30th of Hammer, 1490 DR
Noble Ward - After a long period of inactivity the gateway in the Yawning Portal has once again brought danger from the under-mountain. Recent quakes have forced frightened goblins their homes in the dark depths.
Led by a Hobgoblin Warlord, a group of goblins laid siege upon a handful of elves, attempting to abduct and sacrifice Elven casters. The goblins were successfully repelled by a small group of elves and the town guard.
Upon investigation of the Yawning Portal it was said the screams of dying goblins were heard from the depths. A removable cover has been placed over the portal to prevent further goblin incursions. Adventurers are permitted to enter the under-mountain using the temporary cover.
