"Free fish!"

I doubt any of these castle guards will still have their jobs after the King finds out about this.


....and on the other hand, the kid distracting all the guards is just about guaranteed a raise!

Ambush at Augmar falls

The great Avalonion rivers bring prosperity to the land through trade and the vibrant wildlife that they support. Apparently they also bring in prosperity and wealth when Avalonian forestmen decide to make raids on travelling folk, particularly Kaliphlites. Everyone knows that Kaliphlites always carry gold on them.
Always.

Battle of Bywater

The Battle of Bywater occurred on November 13, 1419 and was the last battle in the War for the Ring. Shire-folk, led by Merry and Pippin, trapped and surrounded a group of Ruffians working for Sharkey (Saruman). The Hobbits used farm carts and wagons to trap the savage men on the road. The Ruffians attempted to fight their way out of their entrapment, but they were soon encircled and forced to surrender. Merry himself slew the leader of the Ruffians.

Horse Thieves

The Bull clan had been waiting for such an opportunity such as this, seizing their chance; they surrounded the unsuspecting Royal Kingdom guards while they rested among the ruins of an ancient fortress. These guards, outnumbered and now surrounded with so many pointed objects, had no choice but to watch helplessly as their armored mounts were taken from them. This would prove a valuable success for the Bull clan, especially considering recent losses. The Bulls sorely needed a larger cavalry if they were ever to have a hope for success with anything more than a few raids.

Perils of the Wild

Casserin had paid well for the best guards he could find to protect his goods. He was tired of being held up by the bandits that plague the land. “No mistakes this time, “ he thought to himself as he drove his wagon heavily laden with goods along the narrow path. It was the start of autumn, and a few of the trees were just beginning to turn. Casserin anticipated the high profits that the chilling months often brought as the cool breeze brushed his face. Suddenly, as he edged around a rocky outcropping that forced the road to bend, his team reared up. Casserin’s eyes widened in terror as he began to scream. He had heard the rumors, but never even in his worst nightmares had he ever imagined that he would one day face these creatures. They were surrounded.

Seasons Greetings

The famous Merry Band of a spaceport far, far away, finally decided to try their luck somewhere else. Having settled in a cozy mediëval village, they made a decent living.
Trouble began when the Notsomerry Band showed up. These five performers never had a smile on their faces, nor a cheerfull song. Who can blame them, with such a manager.
Anyway, the Merry Band was not completely without intelligence. Having noted the extreme dislike for cold weather, they tried a new technique, to keep the Notsomerry Band out. Faking autumn by falling leaves, they scared the Notsomerry Band back to their home base, fearing that Winter is Coming.

Squilby's Band of Thieves

Before being banished from the Dwarven Brotherhood, Squilby made a large fortune off of his clever heist operation. Along with a few other dwarves of questionable repute, he set up traps in several old tunnels that ran underneath or near prominent roads. One of the group would lure passersby into the trap by offering a large reward to them if they'd give him a hand carrying his chest full of gold and jewels. When they left the road to help (or if less than honest to take possession of the seemingly unguarded treasure), they fall into the tunnel below. A dwarve hiding near the road would 'convince' anyone who caused trouble into the trap. If the fall didn't render them unconscious, a few dwarves standing by with cudgels knocked them out. Then they'd strip the victim of anything of value and deposit him back above ground via a tunnel exit.

Stupid Elves!

Getting into Avalonia was not going to be easy, but dwarves are resourceful....and a brainstorm session can yield some great ideas!

Raven Darksight was contemplating how to lead a group of his Dwarven Army into Avalonia, but those elves seem to notice everything. There has to be a way in to get past those elves!

Ibun, son Mim spoke up, "I got it! We all know how Elves love the forest and the trees right?"

"Aye!"

"Well, all we need to do is have Rowyn and Bowyn dress up like a tree. They wander over near those Elves and start yelling 'Oi, Me leaves hurt, me branches hurt! Please help!' We know that those Elves won't be able to resist helping out a tree."

"Stupid Elves, they'll probably still be munching on their croissants and sniffing their flowers while rush over to help the tree too!"
"Yeah, stupid elves!"

They all laughed as they pictured those stupid elves sniffing flowers and helping out the tree in distress. If this doesn't work, nothing will!

The Grubby Coin Tavern

Sure, providing a safe haven for outlaws brings in more gold than your more… legal… customers, but when the King’s knights get word that the legendary thief Jemhawk and Bull Clan leader frequents the Grubby Coin Tavern, it could mean the end of gambling and shady deals in the cellar, not to mention the barkeep’s life. Let’s just hope that between the hollering downstairs and the captain’s iron-clad questioning, Anna doesn’t crack under the pressure. Perhaps if Lars of the Wolfpack takes the opportunity to steal the Lieutenant’s horse out from under the wool-brained new squire, that will provide just enough of a distraction…

Ulvar

Being accused of murder, Ulvar was being transported to Valholl. But before reaching the capital his men already managed to free him.

"Commander Vargr, the cart is on it's way. It's only accompanied by two knights.
"Good, good... Is the pack in place?"
"Yes sir! The path is at it's most narrow near the old shrine. So it will be over before they'll realize what is happening.
"Good, let's free an innocent one."

"Ambush! Ambush, it's an ambush!"
"I told you we needed more men to get the prisoner to Valholl!"
"Doesn't matter, ride faster...."

Before the knight could even finish his sentence a loud cracking sound followed. Immediately the cart started diving into the sand were it anchored itself.

"Finally, I was almost thinking of an escape plan myself."
"No need to worry about that anymore Ulvar!"

We're under attack

1326AD, 19th January near Rearsby, Leicestershire. Sir Rodger Bellere is attacked by the Folville Gang

Sir Rodger Bellere is a local nobleman, possesing nine manors and founded the chantry at Kirby Bellars. He also happens to be a baron of the exchequereand is protected by none other than Hugh, Lord Dispenser a favourite of King Edward II. Amongst his enemies are the Folville brothers Esutace, Rodger and Walter (they also have another four brothers who do not join the gang) who together with fellow local landowners Roger la Zouche and Robert Halewell form a gang. They attack Sir Rodger Bellere on the road between Melton Mowbray and Leicester, near Rearsby and kill him.

Following the attack the gang flee the country and are declared outlaws. Later on in the same year they are in luck as King Edward II is deposed of and put an end to Hugh Dispenser. During the turbulent political years following the Folville gang remains active before leaving there life of crime and joining Edward III's Military expedition in France - one of, Eustace, even ends up being knighted.

As for the place of Sir Rodger Bellere's murder this is understood to be marked by the so-called Folville Cross, a 1 m (3 ft 3 in) high fragment of an ancient crucifix.
