Word has spread across the lands that the last place of refuge for the goodly folk under Lord Zardon's rule has fallen. Almost overnight, a great horde of orcs swept in and threw their mighty numbers against Haven's gates. Within hours, they had penetrated the city and destroyed the Mellinan wards to allow their undead masters entrance to the city.

The common folk who had sought refuge in Haven many months ago, then only to wait out the dark nights of Hallow'een, have returned to the Outpost and surrounding lands, escorted safely home by groups of skeletal warriors. Almost all have returned safely, perhaps as a testament to Lord Zardon's power in having restrained the orcish force from wholesale slaughter.

Haven now flies Lord Zardon's banners, its once proud Mellinan temple converted to a blackened fane in the name of Necros.

Locally, the returned townsfolk are rebuilding. There is a great deal of renovation to be done on homes left unmaintained during the winter, and farmers scramble to get their fields tilled and crops in the ground in time to collect a decent harvest. Their efforts were initially hindered by the harassment of a terrible and feral-appearing ogre emerging from the wilds to attack their homesteads, but it has not been seen in some weeks.

Tales of a trio of vile old witches spread among the commoners, who seem to think that they will be coming to prey upon them. Some speak of a connection to the cowled figures that lurk in the deep woods.

A number of orcish war groups have been reported in the area, frightening the townsfolk.

Haunting melodies have been said to be heard on foggy evenings, coming and going with the gauzy brush of mist and just as ethereal. All of those who speak of them have been seen purchasing wares from some strange merchant carrying varieties of drinks.

Pale, bloodless corpses have been found, their faces twisted in expressions of horror. Few are willing to go outside at night.
