Stormbringer

Stormbringer Letterbox

10 minute hike, paved bike path, and nice park to picnic.

Considerations: The box is buried so it will be muddy if it has recently rained. A stick should be sufficient to get it out but you might want to bring a small garden digger. BYOI

This box is an homage to Michael Moorcock and the fantasy novels he wrote about Elric, the last emperor of Melnibone. Elric wields the mighty Stormbringer, a colossal black sword with strange runes carved on the blade. Stormbringer feeds on the souls of its victims, has a mind and will all its own, gives Elric unparalleled strength, but also fills him with a bloodlust that will betray Elric in the end.

Now your quest is to find Stormbringer. We have directions from the elves, as follows.

Directions:

1.Begin at the Townsend Tunnel letterbox.
2.Head south. Take a right at the fork. Stay on the bike path and go right when it splits again. There is a small bit of woods here.
3.Just past the woods, you will see the green dragon that protects the sword. Very near him is a huge Treefolk. In between the two largest roots of the tree, the sword is buried about two inches down, about 4 or 5 inches from the trunk.

Please be discreet - lots of dwarves running around. After reburying, be sure to give it a “blessing” by sprinkling leaves and sticks on top.
