Talk from beggars and notices around Storms Landing warn of vile creatures drinking the blood of children. Once men, they were corrupted by evil gods and now go by the name of Vyre.

Rumor has it that several carts have been seen leaving Veraci on which large chests have been loaded... Perhaps people are beginning to grow wary of the absence of government, or the looming threat that Southgate now poses?

The pits of magic exist, a cursed magical object spat from the abyss. The doubt about the legitimacy of the parchment is gone, the chase to find the scales has begun. Word on the street is that scholars search for clues hidden in the looted objects, while other heroes are preparing for their next visit to the second pit...

Rumor tells that at the Tapping of the Kegs the people of Ackerland, starved and bullied by the Lord d'Arras,lashed out in uprising, however, the rebels were easily pushed back, and killed in their resistance. The Veteran Aleksy burnt alive, and his son Berndt captured and taken prisoner. The land has been scarred by this, many houses and fields burnt and in flame, making an already horrible harvest much much worse.

Rumor has it that someone in the Landing is seeking out someone capable of crafting fine jewelry in exchange for a handsome amount of coin.

Haven booms with activity as materials such as gold, marble, and fine fabrics, as well as resources such as oil, circulate through the city. These items are requisitioned and are seen sent to the mountains west of the city, where only God knows what will be done with such fine things.

As Veraci has gone without a Bishop-King without 4 months, it appears a local loyalist resistance militia has sprouted up to defend the vacant throne from Southgate and anyone who might wish to claim it for themselves, hoping desperately that the Vescovo-Re or his Councilors will return.

Tomorrow, Lady Southgate and her men will enter the city to claim the throne. Tensions are high as many board up their homes for the inevitable fighting. Barricades have been thrown up in the streets by Veracian resistance fighters as peasants and nobility alike take up arms to defend their home from the foreign invaders. Will it be enough?


OOC: Tomorrow, at 12 PM CST (1 PM EST), a VIOLENT event will be taking place in Veraci as Southgate's soldiers march to claim the city as their own. Everyone is welcome to play as one of Calypso (MelodyComplex)'s fighters (either as your character, a temp peasant, middle-class townsperson, merchant, or nobleman) or as one of Southgate's (Old-Seadog)'s mercenaries (or your character) and fight for the fate of Veraci!

Word begins spreading in the village of Eastwatch and the docks of Storm's Landing. Elizabeth Kane begins sending word through as many shipping companies as she can find. It would seem the woman is seeking a man named Aleksandar, but for what purpose she will not say.

Two dockworkers lounge about outside a ship to Mockingbay as their fellows stocked it with crates, smoking pipes. They began to converse over this piece of gossip, idly, in their state of boredom. "Is it Jane's boy she's lookin' for?" One asked the other. "'Course it ain't- Why'd a well-off lady look for a farmer's child?" The other remarked with disdain. The first would shrug. "Beats me.. The name matched." "No-no, it sounds more like 'Ay-leek'. The smarmy-ass that worked for us a few months back." "That one?- naw.. Didn't he go off and get himself stranded in that cyclone's ship cemetery? Surely dead." "I thought he went off to chase after a blonde who disappeared.. or was it a dark haired one-?" "What's he gonna chase when he's the one runnin' with our pay?" The short-lived idle gossip is hushed as a ship bell tolls. "Ach- Don't matter now.. Captain's waving us aboard. Maybe the lass'll find what she's lookin' for." "Hmm.. maybe."

The butcher's in Halbed was riddled with a fire that eventually died out.... and then a loud bang and much more fire some time later on, seems there's not much of it left anymore.

Rumors make their way around Halbed and Storm's Landing, stating that a man by the name of Aldris has gone mad, stabbing a woman in the basement of the old Hog's Head Butchery. He fled from the scene and has not been spotted since, most suspect he is dangerous and should not be approached.

Rumour spreads that Count Leighton Altham was taken to the hospital in Storm's Landing, unconscious and on the brink of death. Little has been heard since, and he is no longer found anywhere in the city.

Storm’s Landing has seen the death of a pair thugs, both of whom were apparently asking one Galla Vita about a marriage contract. It seems a large bird did a great deal in the dispatching of these scum.

The residents of the quiet town of Astrakhan were shocked to discover that the markets and the farming district had been vandalized while they had been sleeping. Some of the crops appeared to be deliberately trampled, and things had been stolen from the market. Was this the work of a drunkard or something else far more ... sinister?

The gates of Queensport open once more, and new life is breathed into the city. Where once the Kanes had removed themselves from the public eye, it would seem Elizabeth has come back to reopen the crown jewel of the Kalstaat once more. Dock workers return to business as more and more ships come into the harbor, and more wagons bring Eastwatch's harvest north.

A man in tattered robes and mail has been seen dashing across the old Valerean country side, heading southward. He was armed, but did not accost anyone, instead claiming he was Rogerius Ricci, Vescovo-Re of Veraci.

In Veraci, the reversal of the flow of water has caused a shock flood of seawater. If the city hadn’t been built with canals, the entire settlement would have been submerged like its slums of old. However, citizens simply saw a 1-2 foot increase in water, some minor water damage, and now, a slow receding of water from their beloved canals, making travel difficult but not impossible.

Meanwhile, farther up in the middle of the continent, Astrakhan has received minor flooding, but since they appear to be in the center of the rivers (and farther up river), they see no real damage to their towns or the quality of their drinking water. MelodyComplex
