The Middle Isles
On The Claims Of Legendary Monsters In Other Nations
Of course, O Sovereign, it said that as distance grows, the truth wilts. Although we have known such creatures as harpies, storm wraiths, and the occasional sea giant in our domain, we are often belabored with stories regarding underground tribes of malicious elfin creatures, terrible nine-headed hydras, all varieties of greatwyrms, manticores, hippogriffs, and the pegasus. The verification of many of these items cannot be confirmed, but I would always be mindful of the source. If it is a philosopher or natural historian of some repute, than the claims should be grudgingly believed. Otherwise, doubt should be cast upon them, until verification may be otherwise made.
