Tales by TerishD : The Curse of a Home - One|

Rain stared at the bog before him looking for signs of possible trouble. The stream of water that passed through the rift that he was presently calling home was normally a friendly sight. The gurgling rush of water entered from a small cave at the western tip of the fault in the earth’s crust and left through another at the eastern tip. The western cave was large enough to crawl into, and he and Jackal had once done so to ease their minds of the opening into the dark not also being an egress for monsters. The water coming from the cave was fresh enough, and the cave itself did not show any signs of it providing comfort to any vile creature. A metal grate made of loosely joined rods was found torn from its place of being a barrier against any monsters coming into the rift from below, and both the elf cleric and the human bard had blamed the removal on the undead that had recently called this place home. After resetting the grate, both had gone to the eastern end of their break in the earth. The water there simply drained back into the depths through a natural hole. No grate was here probably because it would only be a problem as leaves and detritus would accumulate on it and block the escape of the water. Only so much water could exit the hole however, and the recent deluge had formed a substantial body of water over the drain.
Thus starts a new Jackal and Rain tale. I want this one to be a little more demanding than those in the past, but only time will tell.

Chapter Twenty-One - Part 2
The men did not move much during the next couple of weeks. They just could not do it with the lady acting as she was. Both Oggelly and Feladin managed to see their friend in the little elf form, but the true sightings were rare. They mostly went out hunting to make certain that they had food, and to leave the lady alone.
Sylvia willingly took care of the camp. The horse was well tended with its entire coat regularly brushed along with flowers placed in its mane and tail. Complete meals were managed as the plants were further tested. She took apart one of her dresses and made a new shirt for each of the men.
The final details are handled with our heroes.

The upcoming, new campaign setting Ebberron will of course have it's own, special monsters that call that world their home. In this new article of the Gearing up for Ebberron we are presented with a few of these monsters unique to that campaign (at least unique until you decide to adopt them for your own campaings ) - 4 to be exact.
As a little bonus each of the monsters is commented upon by Matt Smith. These coments give a good summary of the dangers and tactics each of these monsters can present, so don't skip them totally.

Chapter Twenty-One - Part 1
The men did not wake the lady, but both commented about her sleeping late. Sylvia generally slept the least. Oggelly thought nothing about staying up all night; he had again stayed up most of the night tending to both the dragon skin and the deer skin. The minstrel would however also lay around all day if he considered nothing pressing. Feladin was often the first to bed and almost always the last to rise. He tried to maintain some type of order to his day, and saw nothing wrong with going to bed once everything he had to do was done then not getting up until he felt there was something he needed to do. Sylvia was the one who stayed up late to read her magic text in order to work out some problem she felt could be solved with a few more minutes of mental work. She was also the one who rose early to exercise and take a private bath. Truthfully, both of the men felt it was a good day to relax, so actually envied the lady for being able to start without them.
The problem that Sylvia has been feeling come upon her reveals itself fully.
