In less significant news, this publication reported the missing status of two Rosengift gnomes, Eriot and Burs, almost a week ago. Unfortunately, several of their personal items were found far to the southwest of Ta'Vaalor, well past Yander's farmland.
The state of their items point to some sort of explosion or fatal alchemic reaction. Information from gnomes searching for them confirms that at least one of the goods they were trading for in their travels was dangerous in nature, prone to volatile and violent activity.
Several forest gnomes who were acting as seekers for their lost kin issued a public and formal apology to the aelotoi who were harassed concerning this issue, as it is now clear that they were not at fault in this matter.
