Before wars between the various lands of Itherelle threatened to bring ruin to the Grisroc Kingdom, the castle of Grisroc reflected peacefully across its quietly flowing moat. It was one of the most admired structures. As feuds developed, battles erupted, and more raids upon the villages in the already straining and troubled outskirts of the castle occurred, its ability to withstand complete destruction was questioned.
The King and his advisors, feeling defenseless against the powerful creatures approaching from the jungle, and also concerned about attacks coming from the mountainous wilderness to the north and even the southern desert regions, considered their best interests were to leave in search of a new home.
Before a final retreat could be set in order, the waters surrounding the castle and villages of Grisroc began to secrete a cloudy haze and reek of an unbearable stench. More noticeably, massive and dark shadows in the depths began to lurk below. Something, friend or foe, had found a dwelling in the Kingdom’s waterways.
Even though the Kingdom was restless and shaken by these new manifestations, the plan for exodus was still a week away. While some wanted to leave immediately, the King ordered all to stay and adhere to the initial plan of leaving on the next full moon’s rise. There was a huge dispute over the delay of departure, but it truly was the safest play. These new beings had not proved dangerous, and secure passage through the valley would not be achieved until the intended night of withdrawal. As it turned out, this decision proved worthy and had rewarding consequences.
On the night before Grisroc’s flight, a massive enemy from the distant jungle advanced toward the Kingdom. Fire flashed over the horizon announcing the start of battle, and it was then that previous sightings from townspeople of moat monsters were confirmed. As it was recorded from a farmer’s account on the day of the attack:
“The monsters emerged from the moat of the castle and nearby waters, as if they had been called upon in defense. Its blood red belly, spiked spine, and black beak-like snout that flaunted piercing fangs sprang fear into my heart. I had expected the king’s guard to be the first response to these invaders, but instead I found myself in awe of our new defenders. They charged towards the enemy. Courageous. Menacing. Both aspects at the same time. As they waddled to the battlefield, they shrieked sounds that nearly broke the air; deep grey laces comparable to that of seaweed arose from their bodies, and in the flames their scaly, slimy skin sparkled in the fight.
After it was clear that these Moat Monsters had won a decisive victory against our invaders, they slithered back into whence they came. It was made clear to me that these monsters of the moats were not only protecting their homes, but also protecting their food. They needed us to stay, for they relied on our wastes and scraps and we realized they would help keep Grisroc Kingdom from destruction. We were grateful and happy to then remain.”
