Ornal Pass Giants Mysteriously Slain
The bodies of two mountain giants were found early this morning but their cause of death remains a mystery. The only marks on both are a small discolouration that, according to authorities, looks to be an impact mark. However, their skin remained unbroken and no projectiles were found nearby. Expert opinion is that the two were caught completely by surprise and killed in an instant.
Of concern is that their meagre treasure was left on their bodies. From this, authorities have deduced they were either killed as some form of experiment or possibly because the pair simply happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
When questioned, local man Jert Bendry denied any knowledge of what had happened though he was grateful the hostile beings had been dealt with. "Their kind is always causin' trouble," he was heard to assert.
Helios authorities have expressed a wish to speak to anybody who was in the area of Ornal Pass yesterday. Although they have claimed publicly that no specific individuals are being sought, one source has told this reporter that he did see a number of well-known "personalities" travel through the city gate only hours before whatever it was took place.
While this reporter does not condemn the slaying of such beings, the question of how they were killed is of concern. Is this some dark magic at work? Or something even worse?
