With the destruction of the rift stone driving the local wildlife mad, the cave in southern Feywood has seen the return of various animals. Elven scouts report a monstrous shape which haunts the cave in the twilight hours, and urge travelers to be cautious.

Rumor that a raven-haired Elf, hailing from Steinkreis had passed through the Feywood, recently. Delivering to a small gathering of scouts - a very large feather, and claw, as well as a handful of 'waystones', and word of a now-dead Owlbear which she had come across in search of remaining evidence of The Rift, and what consequence it would still bear.

The ringing of steel, glow of the forge and occasional bouts of steam both give evidence to; and sprout rumours of a smith, practicing his trade south of the town of Hamley.

In the dead of night, and even in broad daylight, nobles in Steinkreis have turned up dead. The only hallmark of the murders is a white card with a black "R" painted on it, placed on each of the bodies.

Oddly, a strange barrel bearing the same mark has appeared in Dragon's Watch... are the two connected?

Saintsblood


[ image disabled ]

Rumors within Steinkreis speak of a mysterious elixir on the streets of Lowtown. There are whispers of miracles, of lowly beggars of Lowtown afflicted with high fevers and incurable rotting diseases recovering from a single sip.

This elixir seems to come from within the Lowtown itself, rather than from the temples or the priests. Some say it is a deliverance, a blessing of Andarus on those who have suffered too long. Others say the White Rose has returned to rally lowtown against the high courts. Still others claim it is a poison, a monster's blood, sent by the Watch to curse the city's least fortunate.

The elixir remains in short supply, and the price on the streets quickly rises. Unscrupulous nobles barter thousands of gold to try it for themselves. Men desperate to save their family from disease are more than willing to kill for a bottle they believe holds a single dose.

They have come to call this elixir Saintsblood. So named for it is truly considered a miracle.

((If you would like to do a scene investigating this mystery, reach out to me))

Rumors spread rather quickly around the Watch. Chaska was seen at a slave market. Alongside the White-Rose herself. Both, have been taken prisoner. Chaska, taken by the Flames of Andarus, and Nicolette by a man named Seraphix.

The Flames were said to have been travelling south with several new slaves, one of them being Chaska.

Yet, the one known as Nicolette Adair, the traitor to Steinkries, heathen and wicked doer - as proclaimed by The Flames, is unaccounted for completely.

Notices begin appearing in Steinkreis, Hamley, Greenvale, and the Celestial Temple. The seal of the eight-rayed Sun of Andarus appears as a header.

Attention!

The extremist coalition known as the Flames of Andarus, led by Pious Endaris are to be excommunicated from the Faith for heresy upon the name of Andarus at the will of the standing clergy of the Celestial Temple to Andarus.

The Celestial Temple will disallow the Flames from any and all access to the Temple grounds unless it be to seek absolution for their heresy and sin.

Additionally, if one might acquire a sample of a substance known as Saintsblood. The Clergy of the Celestial Temple will offer a reward of no more or no less of 100,000 gold shillings.

Be wary of the Flames! They heed little to the Celestial Code, consider these Flames dangerous and unruly.

The Flames of Andarus, as well as their young charge Mira, are said to have come under attack in the Kreisian gardens, seemingly the work of a powerful drow sorcerer. The sorcerer, a dark elf, is said to have cloaked himself in the guise of a surface elf to lure the child. Some of the flowers of the garden still remain blackened by the dark magics of the void. Several knights are rumored to be dead in the attack.

It is rumored that dark elves worked with a powerful fey creature of Poisonwood to steal Andarus' favored child from the city. Some within the city curse the names of all the elves for taking their miracle cure from them.

The Flames have remained tight-lipped as to Mira's true whereabouts, but the elixir known as Saintsblood is being tightly rationed, only provided in the rarest of cases.

Word drifts around the taverns of a tracker looking to hire locals to help investigate the disappearance and vandalization of some Hamley grain bins. They say to leave word with a man named Ven'leth if any leads are found.

Rumor spreads in the northlands village, and from there throughout the island, that the Craggen temple has been overtaken by a "ball of death". Locals and adventurers are urged to avoid the area if they value their lives. While the efforts of mages have stopped the "death-ball" from spreading further, the situation is volatile and may change without warning.

((OOC, a sphere of Annihilation has swallowed the Craggen temple. Cyriacus will be unavailable for bounties for the time being)).
