Local residents notice a newcomer coming in, and settling at the local Inn.   She seems to shuffle between tradesmen, talking and conversing, and working where needed. With deep red hair, and a formidable set of platemail, she sticks out from the other residents of the remote town.

Rumour has it that many Ezrites as well as a strange, lone fey were seen battling two women in the vineyards; The younger, dressed also as an ezrite, and the old, a poerful witch who summoned giant demons. The younger of the two was slain, but the older escaped.
Just another lesson from the School of Hard Knocks... PHD!

~One of the Local's from Krofburg has recently left, setting off down the beaten path's of the mountain passes towards Vallaki. He was known around the small Village as a Miner and was something of a local pariah amid the populace due to a scandalous event that saw his wife leave him for the son of a rich vineyard owner. There is a slight decrease in the production of valuable minerals for a short time, but the community soon finds itself recovering.~

~ It's been said of late some of the Bolder members of the small community of Krofburg have begun keeping regular watch over the mountains as well as working as go between's for the various commerce that transpires between Vallaki and The Small Mountain Village. Many have seen them about along the mountain passes and it's said they have a habit of making camp sometimes down by the Vistani near the outskirts, though far enough away to not be associated with them. They Keep to themselves mostly and seem to have the typical demeanor one might come to expect of the hardy mountain people of the balinoks~

~Late in the Night some manner of Wolf neuri was sighted in the small Village, leaving behind a trail of unrest in it's wake. It is said one of Krofburg's very own Son's Ran the beast off with the assistance of his woman, but as any sensible barovian's would they did not give chase to the creature as it scurried off howling in the night, dealt a severe blow by the Large mans Halberd and with several bolts sticking from it's pelt.~

A young Gundarakite man has shown up in Krofburg, known to shopkeepers by the name "Franjo".  He's begun pulling his weight, assisting the Barovians with their day to day work as if he was one of them.  He does not force his help, or expect payment for it.  Any who deny him are left alone. 

When he is idle, he is either seen in the tavern, making a trip back down the mountain, or stitching what appears to he a linen doll with whatever he can find.

~The Village of Krofburg has welcomed three new recruits into their branch of the garda, grossly underpowered the small mountain village can use all the help it can get. Among them are said to be a Man known to many as Ril a known local, his woman Felicia said to hail from vallaki originally and a barovian named Mihail who rumor has it comes up from the Mount Sawtooth region. All three have been known to work towards securing the roads that serve as the arteries to the heart of the small mountain village and helping commerce thrive by personally seeing to the escort of goods to and from the large settlement of vallaki. ~

~Of late Patrols can be sighted along the Mountain passes that lead towards Krofburg, mostly these Garda do little to affect Commerce but it is not unknown for them to stop passerby and ask them of their Destination or check over their shipments. On Occasion Civilian inhabitants of the small village can be seen in their company as well, likely being escorted by their brethren to and from the much Larger Settlement of Vallaki.~

~In recent news, yet another Neuri attack has plagued the small village. Whether this was the same Neuri from before or an altogether different one remains to be seen. It's possible a rising threat looms up near Krofburg though the only victim's thus far have been a single lamb, largely due to the efforts of two of the Mountain Villages Inhabitants. It was said the couple were recently camped out enjoying some alone time when the most recent event transpired and when the pair mustered the courage to give chase the beast fled~

Following tragedy the young mountain man known as Bogdan was spotted, yet bearing signs of the previous nights events, with pack in hand and doi axes slung to belt.  He spoke to none as he left Krofburg, yet his face bore a mix of anger and pain.

It was said he returned as night fell, bloodied and no less angry than he left.  He was accompanied by the small thin woman from the bottom of the mountain.  They parted ways shortly after though no kind words were shared in the parting

~More whispers of dread beasts and unrest fill the idle chatter among the community as a loud howl followed by heavy systematic thuds against the door to the wandering billy were heard by patrons and those in the vicinity. None were foolish enough to open the door yet it was rumored several of the hearty mountain people of Krofburg stood ready inside the tavern with Silvered weapons drawn, having been prepared for just such instances by one of the town locals known as Ril As the sunrise came it was said both he and the towns resident scout Felicia followed the trail though as has happened on two separate occasions the beast had escaped once more. That very same day a new Oaken door was constructed by one of the Sons of Krofburg Named Bogdan, Reinforced with Iron which was said to be acquired by Ril. The pair helped one another put the new door up all the while grumbling at one another over some matter. They retired to the Inn that night in the company of one of their Childhood friends named Camelia who has recently returned home from a two year stint on her grandmothers farm in Krezk~

Perhaps coincidentally a new face can be seen around Krofburg at times. Typically cloaked and hooded, the figure has at times been noted to be of Vistani blood, and often times can be seen running up or down the long, mountainous road to the the village in spite of the treacherous conditions of said road. With the recent string of Neuri sightings, it does not take long for rumours to begin circulating among the locals of some connection between the 'Crazy Outlander' and the recent rash of werecreature sightings.

A peculiar band of garishly-dressed outlanders arrived in Krofburg recently, claiming to belong with some manner of foreign theater troupe looking for inspiration of some kind. As they talk to the villagers, they themselves glance about with guarded expressions, as if they themselves expect trouble almost as much as the villagers themselves do. The villagers might notice that for a troupe, they're fairly well armed...

~A bald, brash man has just arrived in Krofburg this evening carrying a deliver.  He had three crates upon his back and the man beside him one.  He has talked much in his endeavors about the local bars about finding work and making a copper blade, with his own hands,  while he stays here.  A passerby thought the man to be of Tepestani decent, though few had actually met any or wanted to speak of it at the time~

~Of Late one of the quiet Villages Garda can be seen standing in the market square of a day, eying the commoners perhaps slightly more than usual. It's possible the stern Man known as Ril is keeping an eye out for specific behaviors or perhaps his Taciturn nature gives him cause to mill about. He does however seem to keep a close eye on this 'Troupe' that has made it's way to the village, mostly however he leaves them to their research, allowing them to seek out the inspiration they so desperately seek for their next production~

Rumours that are whispered throughout Krofburg speak of a friend, of a friend, who disappeared one night 'on the mountain'. The Krofburg guards are never contacted on these occasions that are whispered of, so it is hard to know of an exact number of these missing people. A strange mood is present nowadays in Krofburg, the village folk even more suspicious than usual.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but having the ability to face it.

Several arrests were made by the local krofburg guard. One being a guard himself, and the other a cultist. They were heard being accused of aiding in the disappearances of good barovian folk. There was a great deal of tension within the Wandering Billy as well, as one of those guards made certain to make all outlander guests feel unwelcome within their territory.

~One of the Town's Garda was seen Drinking heavily after the arrests were made, his knuckles bloody and several splotches of blood covering his armor. Perhaps on an unrelated note the 'Troupe' that had stayed amid the quiet mountain Village for the past few days were seen departing. The Villagers likely as pleased as the Troupe to be parted from one another's company.~

~After all the commotion at the inn, and the town calming down, one outlander still remains.  The man who plays the fife each night about his tray of mugs. He works the mines by morning, and spends his afternoon at the forge diligently working on a copper sword.  Some have heard him murmur of having troubles with its completion, that when it is through he will be leaving the mountain village~

There's a ruckus in the small village in the middle of the night, several men seen entering the home of one Dmitri Niculescu and leaving with a small form wrapped in a bloody sheet. The man, known for his good nature, friendly temperament, and love of his family is seen hunting down the Krofburg Garda known as Gavril with the repeated beggings of, "Find my daughter." It appears as if his wife had met her end that night, whispers of why and how spreading through the village like wildfire.

In the past few weeks a man has been seen quite often in the small mountain village.
Most of the time alone, but on occasions with others, he comes and goes quite regularly.
At first his clothing and armour were in bitter state, however as he brought delivery after delivery, he started to spend quite an amount in the nearby shops.
The smithery and the tannery are that seem to be his focus, and little by little, the mans outfit and weaponry has changed and improved. With various tools, weapons, half made products, he is a regular sight in town, however he seldom seems to frequent the tavern, as if he was working through most nights, while in the village.
On occasions he is even seen to rid the vineyards and the goat ponces of the pestering wolves.

[Loud, bellowing roars rocked Krofburg this past night. As morning came, it would seem whatever was responsible for the nightly terrorizing had slaughtered an entire stock of goat, and had defaced a statue and multiple doors with claw marks.]
