Overnight, Shalherana’s mark begins to fade from Mockingbay. The central city church’s doors are locked. The street-side adornments that once depicted Her tenets are left bare though still stand. Though no official announcement has been made, citizens gossip about the Queen’s whereabouts, and her wellbeing.

Between Storms Landing and Mockingbay, rumors spread of hearing strange howls and sightings of a giant wolf with red eyes and black fur.

It has been said that in the coming months after the recent festival in Storm’s Landing, many couples have found themselves pregnant. Some blame Sallana and the festival itself for “spreading the love”.

During the night of the Harvest Festival in the Landing, there were strange shouts and screams. To the horror of citizens at dawn, the remnants of the festival grounds lay burnt, damaged and soaked of rainwater. The tavern still welcomes its doors to strangers and wanderers alike, but the atmosphere around the largest trade hub will be strained for the next few days from citizens. A mix of joy and fear. Showing kindness to fellow neighbors might ease these feelings.

"The nerve of these dockworkers. Take an eye off them for one second and they're up and giddy about the next latest gossip."

"They seem much more excited than usual. Scared even."

"They'll be scared when I dock their pay. What the hell are they on about anyhow?"

"One of them prattled on over this.. "Scrimshaw".."

"A bonecarver?"

"No, a whale. A white whale at that. It's been hanging off the coast of Eldpoint just a few weeks ago."

"Well that's nothing to be afraid of. Sure, its a rare beast, but its just a whale."

The door to the harbormaster's chamber opens. A sullen look grips the courier who wordlessly lays down a deposition near the dockmaster and his assistant, keeping this interruption as succinct as possible. The harbormaster grumbles as he tears open the parcel to reveal several reports. His surly temperament quells and stiffens upon reading.

"... Two fishing vessels, a cog, several tons of cargo-..... Lost. Eye witness report indicates a... white whale off the coast of Eldpoint sunk the vessels.."

"..."

"Assemble the trade guilds of the wrecks associated and file a missive to the Treasury... This ain't right."

Indeed it was not as the harbormaster declared. For the past several weeks, those around Eldpoint would bare witness to a white sperm whale encroaching the bay. Rumors abound that people have seen the whale breach and collapse smaller fishing vessels. Some even claim it bears a horn, but nevertheless, a whale that seeks to destroy whole vessels is a major threat that has now gripped the minds of dockworkers from the dusty port of Linistel to the freezing icewater of Queensport.

Word spreads quickly within the city of Eldpoint, and the Count puts up a notice stating for all merchants to exercise caution. Two of the city's main fleet circle near the mouth of the bay, keeping eye out for this whale.

+ Construction crews have been seen coming and going from one of the larger buildings of Storm's Landing. Anyone who approaches them to ask the nature of their work quickly discovers that they are working on a new hospital, subsidised by an elven noble and his fiancee. +

* Small holes have been popping up over the city of Astrum, some sharing resemblance to Rabbit Holes, others to small cracks in the ground itself. As of yet, nothing eventful has happened regarding them - besides a few broken wagon wheels. However, rumour has it that an old elven woman is gathering do-gooders to investigate. *

"...What a mess."
"He's everywhere! Who would do something like this?"


The two farmers stand over the remains of a scarecrow a little outside Storms. It's been hacked to pieces, perforated a half a hundred times by a knife. Someone discharged a crossbow bolt into its head, for good measure.

"First the scarecrow? Now, this?"
"Who'd do this? Why?"
"Well, what is for sure- I am not going to be touching that water for a long time ...!"


Two farmers stand next to the farming district fountain and would be looking at the water. Within it would lie some odd chunks of flesh thrown haphazardly into the water. Markings in blood would surround the shrine. It would indeed be an odd sight to see.

OOC: Let me know if you want me to come by and dm an investigation. Although should be self-explanatory by the signs.

A day before the upcoming festival in Linistel all of the lanterns would be lit with purple flames in preparations for the festivities.
Rumor reports an elf in a purple coat going around with a long stick over the course of the day and lighting each one.
The majority of the sightings are around the festival grounds.

Those familiar with Linistel and its visitors would hear rumours. The Festival held in Linistel becomes lively and almost chaotic as the air fills with colourful debris, the festival grounds, upper city streets and springs become littered with colours of dust, even the spring waters have turned faint colours. Citizens and foreigners alike are found covered in rainbows of dust from head to toe.

In respect for the seriousness of the second day of the festival. All of the purple flames around the grounds have been snuffed out.​

Mockingbay citizens whisper about a commotion in the middle of the night. Guards were seen rushing about calling out to each other while one man was seen carrying what appeared to be a person towards the palace. The morning after the gates to the palace were closed, the doors locked and the curtains drawn. A tense quiet lingers in the city as the people await an explanation.
