Port--Lucine - Quartier Marchand
« on: September 19, 2009, 03:35:46 AM »
[Word on gendarme's lips speak of the brutal, revolting murders at Quartier Marchand. The loathsome display of half eaten corpses sprawled on the cobblestone raise indignity and fear. Citizens are told to stay indoors, the authorities are on the look out for a wild beast.]

Sarah the mute "Queen of the Seas" has recently appeared again regularly in the Mutinied Sailor Inn, occasionally in company of some friends of hers. She blows kisses to Jean as usual, drinks her poor quality beer, stays there and seems to be waiting for something. Someone can swear she has handed a message to Jean, probably a love letter. Sailors are romantic sometimes, they say.

Around the Press more than a Chat Noir has been seen going in and out from that establishment. Someone rumours maybe, despite the general commotion caused by the recent events in Port--Lucine, the Club is at any rate preparing something. People wonder if their next plan will be safe, or, in general of which kind it can be. The operations seem still rather secretive, nevertheless some of the workers of the area might swear they heard clearly discussions about flyers, and about a new opportunity for local talents to take advantage of. The cat seems to go where the food is better and the shelter safer. Some occasional autumn rain washes away the dirt and the bad memories of the past days. Hidden in a corner, a black cat licks her lips, waiting for the right moment to walk again in the alleys. Uncareful of rumours, yet feeding them.

Art collectors and critics, in Port-a-Lucine were shocked to learn that the new Gilbert Lizotte showcase was to be held in an abandoned warehouse in the Quartier Marchand right on the water's edge. The showcase opens this evening, and is free to the public. It is said in some circles that it will be a great failure, due to it's dangerous location in an unsavory part of the city. Despite this the rumors of Gilbert's shocking work, and the emotional reactions they cause in the viewer may still draw a crowd.

With the great success of Gilbert Lizotte's showcase, he has agreed to leave his display up, and open to the public for the next few days. While it will not be the huge influx of viewers it was on opening night, it is still expected that many stragglers will come to take a look at the infamous artwork.

Locals could have heard the clash of steel on steel and the echo of spells in during the past twilight hours.  Those looking out their window would have seen two armored men combating a very large force of Caliban Gangleaders.  One of the men, seemingly the stronger of the two was very pale skinned wearing dark chain and plated armor.  The cloak on his back bore the crest of the new Family that has arrived in town.  The other armored man wore bright colors and wielded a large sword.  These two seemed polar opposites and why they were working together, one could only speculate.  The darker man could be heard shouting with the Caliban over the fray of combat, "These streets belong to the family now!  Accept our embrace or perish!"  He shouted.  It would seem his words fell on deaf ears however as the Leader of the Caliban shouted back, "They belong to us!  Time to die!"  Soon after, the other warrior fell to the hands of one of the Gangleaders.  Following his fall, the dark armored man could be heard shouting, "You have made your choice!  These streets belong to Alexander the Destroyer!  Now perish before the might of my blade!  Die you filthy scags!"  A moment later the fight was over and the Caliban bodies littered the ground.  The Destroyer could then be seen healing the other warrior before fading into the shadows of the night...

Rumour has it that the known Tiefling, Lucinda, was seen leaving the city in the early hours of the morning.
A wise observer would probably attribute this with the increased Ezrite presence in the city.

A small fire erupted in the upper floor of the Mutilated Sailor, burning one of the vacant rooms. The bed itself, was nothing but a shambling of dead wood and ash, clearly, the source of the flames.
An "eye witness", if you could claim such, as a local resident of the place, speaks of an oddity of a couple entering the same room; A man, marred with gruesome scars and smelling of decay and rot, and a woman of red beauty, who's elegance and demeanor were quite the opposite of the hideous "rot man" going upstairs into said room.
During the couple of hours they spent in the upper level of the establishment, a man's voice was heard screaming and shouting in pain, coupled with the thick scent of blood, sterilizing alcohol and freshly cut flesh was all that came from their room prior to the fire.
The drunken man claims, that only the man managed out of fire alive, as the woman was no where insight once the fire ate through the room, and tried spreading into the rest of the rooms, yet still, no body was found...

Madame Montte on reading the latest issue of LECT is heard telling all who will listen that clearly the coward that writes this rag is a social malcontent angry that he is not accepted by decent society and thus lashes out in his jealousy. While tired of his slander and lies she does not take that matter seriously since any who attended the service know that her visit was both polite and brief. She feels terrible that Madame Nightlyre must have the terrible memory brought up by this social pariah when she herself was present and knows the writing to be false. Madame Montte looks forward to his next batch of lies as decent society very much enjoy ridiculing and laughing at this person who is less than a man. She also lets it be known that the proceeds from her lawsuit against him will be given to charity

[Every day more and more weary and haggard looking commoners flood into the city of Port--Lucine. Common folk displaced from the war, civil unrest, famine, and poverty make their way to the city in hopes of work, food, and safety only to find none. The Marchand and and Ouvrier quarters are filling to the brim with poor souls. Gendarme and Government officials are denying many groups entry into the city, and a ramshackle tent town has emerged just east of Port--Lucine where many of these people have taken residence.]]

The Ezrite Marcus Hulford was seen distributing food amongst the angry citizens and encouraging them to be patient and peaceful in the face of these hardships; that the church would not abandon them, assuring them that plans were being put into motion to tend to their needs. Further civil unrest would only lead to greater pain and deprivation, he would have assured them.

[The corpse of a scantily clad woman and a brutish man with an axe would be seen on one of the piers of the docks. Uncommon about this would be trails of some sort of slime going from the corpses - many trails - past the pier and around to the ledge of the docks, ending right at the water. That the two corpses appear to have the same slime on them, and wounds that might appear as if something emerged from their bodies, could lead one to the conclusion the trail actually started with the corpses, with whatever having made the trail having made their way into the sea.]

Numerous bodies are found scattered across quartier marchand with their throats ripped out and their bodies horrifically savaged. Gendarme and nobleman alike appear to have suffered the same fate.

The word on the population of the fair city's lips is 'loup-garou', but the gendarme have dismissed the very notion as being something out a fairy tale. Some whisper it is the act of the revolutionaries.

Word of mouth in the social circles of Port-a-Lucine say that an exotic Vistana woman, Serafim Ianescu, has opened up a fresh new dance club down on the docks. It bears the name "Le Sanctuaire" and hints at being more than just a place for men to go and watch women dance for their pleasure...

[Shortly after the fencing competition held by Houses Dauphin and Montte, smoke could be seen rising from the Widow's Walk. By dawn, it was clear a fire had ravaged the club known as "Le Sanctuaire", leaving the warehouse it was located in entirely gutted.]

For a few nights now, a beautiful lady leaves the Vardo shop in the Quartier Marchand to hunt down thieves, burglars and thugs that lurks about the street. Rapier in hand, she turns them to ribbons, does that escapes her fierceness, might report to their leader that it could be a good idea to make a deal with the Vardo instead of escalating violence.



// Rose would love to make a deal with the local thugs to leave the street alone at night. Maybe when back from Vacation.

~Blood paints the streets red and the remains of many would be Cutthroats can be found in various states of dismemberment and desecration. Face's rent from their owners heads, limbs gnawed off and apparently missing. While it's certainly not unheard of for the bodies of thieves to turn up in the morning, generally they are not so thoroughly ravaged.~

Recently some of the thieves and thugs of the Quartier Ouvrier have been found with their eyes removed, and their left hand severed. Both done neatly and left haphazardly near the corpse.
