A Bugbat?!

Mid-Winter 352 (Year 101)

What?! How a bugbat managed to get into the fortress is a mystery. The Second and Third Caverns have been blocked by the Dragon Watch and the First Cavern was completely secured over seventy years ago. Bugbats only live for about twenty years, so it couldn't have been from a stranded remnant population. Perhaps an abandoned mineshaft allowed access? But if this were the case, how is it that no forgotten beasts have breached the fortress the same way? A troubling puzzle, indeed. Still, this was yet another reminder of the benefit of arming the civilian populace of Relicshield. The worker Unib Faithtorch shot and killed the flying beast with his trusty crossbow, then went about his business.
