Students and scholars, academics and professors, even janitors, are murmuring about Professor Cornell having come back to teaching his classes on Cultures of the Core. Apparently, despite his own faculty, that of History, is closed for a restoration, the Kartakan scholar has managed to recruit personally some students and to borrow (some claim rent, some others worse) a classroom in the faculty of Arcane Sciences.

Accompanied by his assistant mademoiselle Riegler, a Lamordian scholar, the Professor has literally entertained several students for his first class of this academic year. Former students greet him merrily, clearly having left to them a good deal of addiditional knowledge of the world. Nevertheless, his claims about the importance about the effects even of not true data on history, even more important than real data, always leave some more serious colleagues puzzled.

People in town wonder about his reknown "practical classes" which normally move a lot of students in the streets of Port-ŕ-Lucine. Some already speak of a half-serious and half-mocking Meistersinger contest to be held in the Theatre in the next weeks...

Port-ŕ-Lucine really never sleeps.

Students are seen wrinkling their noses as they recount the short, creepy, and rather smelly intruder on campus during a recent night. "par les dieux, he smelled like refusent, like the sewers."  and "He was curious of Professeur Ernst, perhaps we should tell someone."

A normal attendee to the Université de Dementlieu, Madamoiselle Carine D'Ailleurs, has been asking about the Arcane Sciences professeurs for those focusing in the study of the metaphysical, or extraplanar.

The Dementlieuse woman known as Lucille Larose has been staying in the Universite de Dementlieu's archives much of her time, leaving only briefly to get a cup of coffee or something to eat. 
She always returns, moving through book after book, leaving not a single page untouched.  Clearly she searches for something.

[Rumor spreads among the academic elite of a party taking place at Celeste d'Honaire-Loverde's new chateau, recently gifted to her by her loving uncle. She has invited all who are willing to adhere to the dress code of 'suits or tuxedos for men, dresses or gowns for women' a chance to attend this semi-formal soiree, which shall be soon. Dominic d'Honaire, Celeste's uncle and closest living relative, will unfortunately be unable to attend, as he continues to busy himself with the political affairs of the small fishing town of Ste. Luciennes. It is said that a carriage will arrive at the University to pick up many students and anyone else desiring to attend.]

The Second Arcane Duelist's Tournament was held tonight. Last year's champion Anastacia Rotfurt did not defend her title, though she did attend; her reasons for not competing went unnoted. The tournament was won by a mysterious fire mage going by the name of Frank Alexandru, though she skirted elimination in the round robin stage by accidentally scalding half the audience with an errant Meteor Storm spell; the runners-ups were Fane "Smoky" Silivasi in second place and Zachary Sorrill in third. Although some commentators noted that Sorrill was the superior tactician of the competitors, a critical mistake in the final Free For All saw him lose out in the end despite having been unbeaten until that point.

Word spreads throughout the campus that adjunct curator Emmanuelle Beart has brought out long neglected and forgotten curious relics and foreign artifacts from the university archives of the Guignol Museum. She has placed them upon display. The exposition will run for one week. Student admission is free, faculty and staff are invited to pay a 1 solar donation and visitors are requested to pay a 2 solar entrance fee.

Information at this time is uncertain but it would appear a few items have gone missing from the exposition. University authorities and the Gendarmerie are investigating!

Upon conclusion of a university and Gendarmerie investigation it was discovered that some items of antiquity were stolen. These items include 1- antique silver brooch of the Foxgrove family, 1- original heretical text of Ezra, and 1- incomplete set of human teeth reportedly from a Lawgiver missionary of Blaustein. The investigation continues but no suspects are known at this time.

Gossip spreads throughout the academy about a peculiar person visiting it. The woman wore battle-worn steel armor dyed Red and Brass; which coincidentally is how she introduced to the various students and instructors she came across. What had the student gossip though, was the strange horns this woman had piercing her helmet. For a time there was slight panic as this woman also carried weapons on her back. After some time she was seen leaving the academy; no incidents reported.

Trial of Myrcella Artois.
A trial is to take place soon, involving the use of the arcane in the slaying of a noblewoman -- students are encouraged to attend, since the trial results may have some relevance for them.

Rumor has it that Nathaniel kelter, is seeking an audience with the university faculty to propose some form of private funding for the now defunded faculty of arcane studies.

The students and faculty would notice a foreign scholar frequenting the Faculté de Médecine . This strange yet polite crippled man paid a considerable sum to utilize the laboratory and academic library. Is this mysterious individual merely a curious passerby or has he a more obscure goal?

[Those who study the "arcane sciences" at the University of Dementlieu are elated by news of the recent edict coming from the Palais Dirigeant, which they view as a relaxation on the stringent policies put into place by the Dementlieuse government weeks prior. Word is that the Vicomte de Roissy was the man responsible for it, which has helped the beleaguered nobleman enjoy a small rise in popularity, in a most unexpected place. It is said that Lord Balfour de Casteelle and his wife, Lady Cassilda de Casteelle, are actively helping to combat his poor reputation at home and abroad, telling those who view the Vicomte de Roissy in a dim light that his dismal standing in his home country of Richemulot is likely the result of some 'dreadful misunderstanding' that they 'know shall get resolved soon enough'.]

The same crimson robed foreigner continues his research only this time with the assistance of an equally peculiar apprentice. Both men studiously examine the universities display of macabre vivisection and surgery within the basement laboratories.

[Word spreads of a catastrophic malfunction in the enchanting device, Professor Blaise Acursius' pride and joy, resting in the basement of the University of Dementlieu's Arcane Sciences building -- the result ending in the untimely demise of several young, bright minds, as well as the librarian, and one of the spell-casting instructors. While the basement of the building is now safe and the machine is in the process of being repaired, the damage is done -- a handful of students have already chosen to withdraw from the program, deeming the practice of the arcane to be unsafe and bad for their physical health.

Professor Blaise Acursius claims that his prototype was somehow made unstable vis-a-vis a saboteur, and the president of the University, Lord Balfour de Casteelle, is quick to support the man and his claims. However, thee are more than a few in Port-a-Lucine who, upon hearing of what transpired, suggest that Professor Acursius and the University of Dementlieu is to blame, for storing such a dangerous object where young people are learning. Is there truly a saboteur, or is Professor Acursius trying to cover up his own mistakes, which have come with a heavy price, indeed.]
