Shandra Undstar, age 4.:
My favorite goddess is Laupaca because during her festivals we always get new wax coloring sticks and candy. And, this one time when Ma and I ran into that owlbear and it scared us real bad... I prayed really hard to her to save us. And, IT BLEW UP! .

Hamerit, advice given to a missing traveler.:
Been to the Bilgewater Swamps? Yep... Mithral? Sure, found a few ounces. My advice? Stick to panning the Aur River. It's safer. Most of my men disappeared without a trace. Except for Jeneric that is. We found his left boot and half of his trousers. A bit of him was left in each.

Filgre Lecoop, Traveling for Vittles:
Hoof-n-sizzle is another of Port Harbor's wintertime 'delicacies'. Like the formentioned, deerphart dish (whose taste lives up to its name), it was created out of the hunger pains of one of its earliest residents, who was probably part troll. For those weak of constitution its best avoided.

Wenhester,The Evercloud Sagas:
Port Harbor gets its name as the result of its founder being asked to decide which burly half-orc was right about whether the settlement was a 'port' or a 'harbor'. Being small of stature the gnome stated both were correct.

Elknore the Wise, to a foolish young warrior. :
Better get your head on straight lad. You say a woman can't devote herself to Gwagem, take up arms and bloody her foes wherever she may find them? Don't think a woman could pass his Burning Trials and bare the scares proudly? Hmmm... Well, I know of just such a woman... And she's standing right behind you."

Paolo Eventer, excerpt from Adventures at Port Harbor.:
We hadn't made it very far into the deep woods along the Aur River when we stumbled into the colony of pryfon. Eirikin was lucky, the proboscis of the tall stickbug-like creature bounced off his breastplate. Devnora wasn't. The pryfon pierced her chainmail and drove itself deep into her abdomen. I'll never forget how time seemed to slow as I stugglee to fight my way toward her. Or, how she didn't fight as the creature pumped its digestive fluids into her shuddering frame.

Anter, Port Harbor Grave Digger, Acolyte of Cwamin :
Thank Cwamin, I've never had one wake on me. See, it's all about preperation. Proper respect and ritual. Then, you put em in the pine box, vertical. None of this laying down nonsense. And never burn the corpse, ever. At least if one wakes you have a body to put down. But, with a burned one you got nothin. Nothin but a spirit whose last memories are the flames that burnt it down.
