Smoke billows in ominously magnificent plumes above the slums of Storm's Landing while the peasant bodies lie strewn across the road just in front of the gate in their failed attempt for freedom. Through the agonized screams of the burned, the stabbed, and the otherwise unfortunate, one would be further to note the cause of this fire was cold arson. Tis truly a brutal scene for all who witness.

Slyannen seems to have gone threw a change only a bare amoutn of work crews of the city have been left behind in light of the world crisis keeping trade flowing smoothly and without issue. The rest of a large group of of archetects and workers were seen near padure before vanishing into the mountains beyond the forest.

With the end of days seemingly upon us, it would be easy to overlook the absence of the stocky, dwarven Smoke's Trail bartender. Perhaps management is looking for a younger, supple maiden to run the show this time.

Deep in the broken south, on the road south of cape crow that links aelemer and the rest of the empire, travels who camp just off the road at the foot of the mountains tell tales that up in the sky two dark lights shine upwards towards the heavens and noone knows why.

Legend of Altera
Following the events that Linlea has been plundged in, many refugees flock to Astrum, swarming the dock gates. The guards try in vain to check as many refugees as possible but this task is near impossible. With the sheer number of impatient refugees growing, temporary tents are set up upon the Astrum docks, with a crude barricade constructed to protect their flank. However some unhappy refugees start to protest, demanding entry into the already overcrowded city. The hostility between the Astrum guards and the refugees grows and rumour states that a terrible brawl erupted between a patrolling guard and a refugee, resulting in the guard being beaten within an inch of his life before his colleages could rescue him. With many guards now refusing to patrol or assist the growingly hostile refugees, tension swells, and a keen observer might hear a racking cough and bloodshot eyes spreading through the campground.

In the broken South the City of Slyannen has gone quiet to the wider world as the city of Linlea cuts of trade with the city itself its ships no longer traveling far south to the city. The Imperial ships turned away, as the cities grain and food, as well as other luxury items sit idle in the docks rotting away,those that travel near the city see smoke trails rising from the city. And those trying to entere are turned away as the gates are locked,few lucky people venture out of the city itself and tell tales of quarantines and relief centers as the disease runs wild in the city itself.

Rumours and reports spread across the continent along their usual channels. Perhaps travelling slower given the state of the continent's infrastructure.

These rumours suggest that various Temples and Shrines to Ignis Synnove in the region once held by Artois have been torn down and their valuables plundered by the orders of one Francis de Courtnay. Great multitudes of Gold, Marble and Quartz have been swiftly transported to Le Havre to be stored away and used elsewhere.

How heretical.

Word spreads as word does that Elizabeth will be returning to Compendium in the coming days and taking a few with her to open the archive doors for research.

There is a rumour circulating of someone being cursed by the mad god on Linlea. Something about suspicious jester-figures, too?

With trade shut down with the rest of the world and no means or knowledge to produce the cure those who sail past, or travel the roads on the fringe of Slyannen would notice the city itself much quieter. The pillars of smoke still rise from the city as infected die despite efforts to keep them alive, many at this turn in time are made comfortable in their final days.Ships lay at anchor with no crews to man them, as the food and grain stores sit rotten upon them. The food that the uninfected who made it free from the city, go to feed those still alive. Debate rages in the guard and military whether to fire the city since it lays without any but the infected inside of it. As the disease grows stronger and stronger and seems to spread despite best efforts to try and keep it contained,as much time and efofort is spent just to make sure quarantine itself is not breached.​
