{ In - Character Rumors }


Women sit by the fire with their yarns while the men share tables and ales at the tavern. They whisper and share tales of the band of thieves supposedly roaming the countryside, while the barkeep mentions a mysterious beast at least as tall as twenty men!

Some people say the radiant is the currency of the land, but it's more accurate to say rumors and gossip fuel the hearts of man.

Rules:
  1. No spam, OOC comments, or irrelevant replies. Anything derailing in nature will probably be deleted. There is a jokey OOC rumors thread {here} for that sort of thing.
  2. Posting here means that it is fair game for the rumor to become common knowledge.
  3. You cannot post a rumor for the purpose of metagaming. For example, if your character dies, you cannot start a rumor to implicate your character's killer.
  4. Remember these are just rumors and you cannot use it to replace actual roleplaying. You can say you burned down a temple, killed a city's guard, or knitted every resident of a city a sweater. But if you did not roleplay it out, then it is truly just a rumor.
  5. Rules may be added as we go.

"Did you hear about the robbery today?"
"They say the robber died in the sewers."
"What a way to go. Still, good that Jack was fine."

As this story spreads, so too does an anger spread.
And rumor has it, Jack is probably the fall guy.
(Gotta move it as it's a serious rumor.)

Rumour has it that the 'Young woman' the recent Gryphon tried to take has been asking around for a healer who can come to Storm's landing as she is unable to travel.

Rumour has it that a legendary smith from House Yearnen has resurfaced and is now once more selling his equally legendary wares to those who can find his shop.

A scream could be heard coming from the slums in Storm's Landing. People nearby chalked it up to another of Madame Mary's guests, though no one knew why they were screaming about ears.

A few people have seen some figures trekking through the noble district. They didn't get a clear look, but it seemed as though they were carrying something large and roughly human shaped.

Queensport seems bustling with activity despite the recent attack upon the docks. Trade comes in lesser amounts and is more import than export; with quantities of stone and lumber moved within the city walls to join existing stockpiles. Construction seems to be beginning near the Palace, while the docks remain mostly vacant - though scavengers seem to be helping themselves to flotsam from the various trade vessels that rest beneath the waves. City access seems difficult, mind, with only those approved via letters to House Kane being permitted entry.

Various rumors spread about a new guild for anyone medically inclined, or interested in the slightest for doing such. A short Silver Elf has also been seen travelling in and out from Sanardú and Storm's Landing, posting posters around the taverns.

Last night the bank was robbed of all it's radiants, and the banker found dead.
His wife received his head in a lovely package, and has not been seen since she left the city.

In unrelated news, a tent on the road to Burglarshire was burned down for unknown reasons.
