A stone-legged woman was seen in Storm's Landing chasing and beating a man to a pulp with a staff... and causing him to complain about 'burning flesh.' How odd!

Word spreads that Queen Citrine has been inviting priests and followers of Shalherana to visit her in Mockingbay in order to get to know her better. At the same time, a rumour spreads that Lady Shalherana has blessed someone.

In daylight, with no cloud to be seen, thunderous snaps rang through the air for a short moment in the skies above Queensport. Most in the center city could hear it, it was about midday.

Rumor has it that several travelers have gone missing in the night on the roads between the Compendium and the cities on the eastern shore. The disappearances are infrequent, but set enough a trend for the more superstitious gossips to warn of something haunting the paths when the sun goes down.

Rumor has it a new fence is in town. You can find them in the shed across from the Magpie & Mutt mill, behind the whorehouse. Pawn off your stolen and illegal goods here for decent prices, all discretion from the benefactor included.

Wild tales erupt from the morning after the seventh anniversary of the marriage of Niko and Ava Variclav. What started off as a wholesome garden party quickly turned into a hearty night of binge drinking and property damage. Booze flowed down the throats of rowdy party attendees as the soft bosoms of Sanardu's bath maids tantalized those brave enough to follow Niko's alcohol induced antics.

The party did not stop there. The blissfully drunk party crowd descended upon the Smoke's Trail cleaning out the bar's stock then promptly regurgitating it when their bodies finally called it quits. The night concluded to the flying of furniture and fists alike rendering many a broken limb; chair or otherwise. Words cannot describe the headache to be felt by the lucky couple when they awaken and that's not including the hangover.

This truly was the cocktail party to end all cocktail parties.

Several eyewitnesses attest to a huge swarm of bats attacking Storm's Landing. It was said to leave many civilians injured and wounded, the bats getting into homes and businesses to attack people.

Workers and other craftsmen have been seen carting large amounts of materials into the swamplands in the middle of the continent.

Certain travelers in and around Storm's Landing would notice faint guttural noises coming from the woods and brush surrounding the roads. It as much curious as it is unsettling.

The next morning sheds to light to the grizzly scene unfolded within the tavern. A bear, seemingly crazed by Jishrim himself, stampeded through the Kraken's Culling, leaving a slurry of blackened body fluids wherever it went. Its frenzied warpath was brought to a halt by the blades of well-armed tavern-goers, drowning the famed tavern in foul smelling ichor.

The bear was removed from the tavern after the incident.

Maddened and battered travelers from Compendium rave over how the fabric of nature is upending itself. They decry of an army of blackbirds descending on the citizens of the city in brazen fury; their sheer numbers blotting out the sky. Whether these rumors are to be believed or not, something is afoot within the natural order of things.

Trade routes to the South-via-Burglarshire have been reported to come in later than expected. When asked about their delay they all seem to corraborate the same points in their story. A halfling and hearty construction. Perhaps its something to check on, at some point.

The bath house of sanardu flairs to life the heat and steam of the baths are laced with pleasant smelling incense that laces the air, music fills the rooms as those practiced in massage ease the pains of joints. Bath salts fill the water with soothing and relaxing feeling easing joints in thier healing embrace, as a new owner takes up the mantle of running the place behind closed doors.

Compendium seems to have fallen prey to an absolutely horrendous mice infestation. And not just Compendium, but many of the settlements surrounding Storm's Landing and Mockingbay are undergoing it as well. And birds seem to have experienced a strange shift in their migration patterns, lingering around places and pigeons aren't the only birds not afraid of people anymore.

A large palisade seems to be blocking the view of Astrakhan's interior and guards are beginning to patrol the ramparts more and more frequently. It appears the residents are becoming more and more on edge. Rumors circulate about the Basileos wanting hardened mercenaries or volunteers for the garrison to help crush the Serpent Cult Insurrection.

A shrine has been completely desecrated in Sanardu. Animal blood has been smeared onto the quartz flooring and walls.

Perhaps a few of the stray cats have been fighting again or perhaps something more ... sinister ...

Rumors coming out of the Compendium say that the city's resolve is beginning to chip away. The physicians grow weary with constant supervision and treatment for the patients, and researchers sleep little as they pour over notes and reports. The guards and soldiers shrug off their wounds as soon as the Formists can find the time to stitch them.

As more infected gather, so do the incursions.

Travellers to Storm's Landing may notice a lot more birds in the skies and on the rooftops, rats in the streets, and an air of unease. The slums are experiencing a lot more violence than usual, and it is generally suggested to avoid the area and not venture there.
