Tornadoes Emerge From Mournland
STARILASKUR—Strangely persistent tornadoes have emerged from the Mournland this week, destroying barns and farmhouses in their wake.
The tornadoes appeared during sunny, cloudless weather, heading west toward Sterngate and through the hills south of New Cyre. Unlike weather-related tornadoes, these Mournland tornadoes often remain stationary for hours at a time, then lurch forward without warning. They move only during the daytime.
Thus far, they’ve only menaced some farms and small thorps. But all of Eastern Breland worries that the tornadoes will continue to move east and threaten more heavily populated areas.
“We’re used to all sorts of strange things coming out of the Mournland,” said Sterngate-area farmer Nezberro Lallick. “But we’ve never seen anything like this. I’ve got riders that watch the borders for monsters and the like, but these cyclones aren’t like zombies or whatever crawls out of the Mournland.”
“How can you fight off a tornado? It turned my barn into kindling,” he said.
A proclamation from Prince Oargev ir’Wynarn reported the dispatch of New Cyran cavalry to the vicinity of the cyclones. Sages are being consulted for further countermeasures, the proclamation said.
