BNN: Strange Happenings in the Britain Swamp

There seemed to be great urgency in the voices of the town criers as they made the announcement about a strange creature being spotted in the Britain Swamp. It appears that the call went out in almost every town.
It was quite a sight to behold, this creature, which resembled a water elemental in some respects, but whose substance was made up of an odd, green-tainted liquid. Its appearance was the only way in which it was similar to a water elemental, however. The creature cast spells by the dozens, flinging its powerful sorcery at the assembled masses as they beat at it with their weapons time and time again.
Adventurers came out in large groups to battle the creature and its minions. It seemed to be able to summon up groups of Elementals to assist it. The denizens of the swamp also greatly hindered the progress of the heroes as they fought the creature. T’was fortunate that some of the heroes had brought a few Dragons to aid them. It was a hard fought battle and several heroes were slain, but in they end they triumphed. Gold spewed forth from the body of the creature as it vanished into a fine mist.
Many were commenting as to whether this was one of many such creatures, or if this was some unique being. I did a little research and found that this creature has been spotted before, but this one was much more powerful than any other that had previously been confronted. Let us hope that the heroes of the land rise up again to defeat them if more of these creatures show their horrific “faces”.
