Day and night, a lone Zarovan Vistani can be seen watching the Temple and the Rectory. One can only imagine for what purpose.

A lady has been seen often, sometimes during the day, others during the night, busy scrubbing the marble floor of the Refuge of the Fifth Light. She wears layman robes, and she might not be a cleaning woman employed by the Church.

Two Anchorites could be seen and heard, cleaning the Refuge vigorously. Perhaps in preparation for something.

The local forfarian Toret, Siobhan MacGillivray was seen baptizing another Forfarian that some might recognize as the local forfarian Guard, Sionn Buchanon. The chanting hymns and prayers could be heard in their own Forfarian language

The blind cripple girl known as Viorela is left exhausted and bloody in the care of the church.... she passes out on a pew, until one of her own is able to tend her.

A pint-sized Westerner was seen being baptized by Inquisitor Martel with the aid of Acolyte Viorela. The Halfling could be heard praying in Luktar in the hours following the ceremony.

Evelyn Aigrette can be seen standing in what might be vigil in the Refuge of the Fifth Light. She remains at the forward pews, occasionally asking the members of the clergy or Templars within if the Toret MacGillivray, or Inquisitors Veritas and Martel are expected soon. Her expression seems tense, urgent.

A man has been seen in the Ezrite church for the last few days, his clothes are expensive but a little rumpled. He spends his days in prayer or in writing and playing his violin, he seems tired and a little afraid. Twin wounds are on the nape of his neck, and every night he asks to be tied down in one of the pews.

Massacre!

Massacre!

The whole congregation of the Refuge of Fifth Light was slain in a vicious attack by monsters! A few outlanders gave chase but the monsters quickly disappeared from sight. Later, garda came upon the scene, and helped to carry the bloodied corpses of the slain -- easily over a dozen, perhaps as many as twenty -- to the Rectory.

Rumours have it that the Midnight Raptor was involved, and that something was stolen...


(Scene was run/supervised by DM Mephisto)

Templar Evelyn Aigrette of the Fourth Sect could be seen with an initiate of the Templar Order in the Refuge, solemnly giving brief rights to those slain during the attack. She stands vigil for several hours over the bodies.

To any that enter the Refuge, the Templar would simply declare, her voice cold, but set, that, "The Legion will answer for the sacrilege and evil that was committed here. The Lady in the Mist protects her faithful, always."


The Refuge would be locked come nightfall.

Slaughter, horror, massacre! As morning comes the Refuge is a sight of bloody death and sacrilege. The shredded and violated remains of templars, wardens, laborers and the faithful lay in crumpled heaps upon the floor. Amongst the dead are Sentire Mugur Costinus and Toret Roman Tobeichik. They died defending their temple. The center shrine of The Icon of Danzig has been burglarized and the icon stolen.

//OOC note: Ignore the npcs, Mugur Costinus and Roman Tobeichik. If they respawn please notify any DM for  removal. Also the shrine in the back is locked and the relic gone.

Despite the recent tragedy a miracle of faith occurs. Sentire Costinus and Toret Tobeichik have been returned to service. Although the grim task of giving last rites and a burial to the fallen is not lessoned by their task. The Icon remains stolen and questions of the congregations security have been brought into question.

As the morning sun lights Vallaki, fresh ink still shimmers on the door of the Refuge of the Fifth Light, barely painted before the break of dawn.

Viorela fails to report home to her husband, but she is not difficult to find. Those seeking her would find her to spend a full night and day in somber prayer within the refuge....

Speaking to the clergy and fellow Templars, the Templar Knight of the Rectory might gently mention that the Warden had a trying night... but he says no more on her behalf.


((DM Bastellus approved))

Word would spread of a confrontation that took place in the Refuge during the night. Some say that a Lycan beast, a Neuri or wolf-man, attacked the church, smashing in through the upper stained glass windows of the Refuge. Broken glass, scattered across the grounds, rests as testimony to the attack, but aside from some small scratches on the Templars present at the Refuge, there is no more damage, be it to the church, or its faithful.

Templar Evelyn Aigrette of the Fourth Sect could be seen in the cold morning following this eventful night, standing vigil outside the Refuge, her expression firm, defiant, and grateful. Her words are a declaration to any that pass by the church as the faithful come for morning prayers.

"The Church defies the servants of the Legion in all forms! By Ezra's will and protection, did we face the terrors that sought to attack us, and strike them down! The Icon is restored! Take heed and take witness. Only the faithful can be saved when the Time of Darkness comes! Only in the arms of Ezra can you be truly preserved!"

At the moment, two people are in the cathedral an dwarf and a human girl making some disturbance in cathedral. The rumors spread around among the workers who are working there. some of them say the girl sacrificed herself for the goddess, other say that the dwarf did something to her at the altar that made her fall. whatever it is, the rumors are spreading fast around the noble district.
 
P.C. This has yet to be happened :S
these rumors will be postponed for within a week time (or until players at that time will be available to finish what they started)

[As the long Barovian night gives way to the coming dawn, light would fall upon a proclamation nailed to the church's door.]

Not very long after the paper has been left, it has already been taken from its place by an imposing green clad figure.
Beneath the hood of his cloak there was a pair of radiant orbs of topaz color that could be seen.

Word has it an Ezrite Inquisitor from Levkarest has arrived and met with Sentire Costinus. Some word spreads that heresy has been heard to have crossed into Barovia from neighboring Borca. Word spread this man seeks to receive aid in a matter and has been said to be open to aid from outside of the Church itself.

Rumours are going wild about the visit of Bastion Otrava of the Second Sect in Vallaki. It is not clear if she's spending time in the Refuge of the Fifth Light, but it's given for granted she's going to be the one to celebrate the mass for the First Epiphany (5th of May) in former Von Zeklos, now Raduta, Keep.
