Road to Zeidenburg, along the hillsides.

[Several heads can be seen along the road, spiked for display, the bandit gang of "Papa Stoval" who terrorised mercants and caravans has been
put to an end, the Iron Sons now claiming the hillside the gang once used to ambush travellers.]


A warning sign left with the spiked heads...

Quote
"Let this be a warning to all those who break the Counts laws, any partaking in banditry along these roads will meet the same fate at the hands of the Iron Sons Company."

In the aftermath of an argument that carries on the wind, the flags of the Iron Sons Company's unguarded camp are all raised upside down. Come dusk, whatever meaning this message holds is visible to the world.

Hours later a member of the Iron Sons begins to correct the state of the flags, grumbling as she does so.

[The hillsides along the road to Zeidenburg are home to a horrific sight following the battle, a hooded figure is seen dragging the mutilated
bodies of fallen Invidian soldiers, and impaling them along the road, heads and bodies are scattered on either side. A warning to the Invidian
force perhaps? or a mere act of rage is anyones guess. A sign now sits at the end of the road.]


[The sign has blooded handprints along the edge.]

In the early dawn hours an armed Barovian woman seen in the ranks of the Iron Sons is seen leading an Oxen out of the western gate of Vallaki towards Zeidenburg, weighed down with all manner of supplies, such as woodcutter's axes, rope, cooking pans, torches, bundles of fabric, burlap-wrapped sides of beef, tents and other miscellany.

[Activity is seen in the partially reformed Iron Sons camp atop the hillsides, watchers looking over the roads for Invidian activity]

The Dawnspear, Serghei Blaga, of the morninglord church can be seen removing the staked bodies from the road. A large grave has been dug on the northern side of the road. His progress is slow as he offers prayers for each mutilated body as they are buried.

[Vigilant eyes are on the lookout throughout the hillsides, nestled in the mountains the scouts of the Iron Sons Company keep their eyes
peeled for the Invidian threat]

MASSACRE!

MASSACRE!


On the road to Zeidenburg what appears to be an ambush took place only to be discovered the following day. The victims - Vistani all. There is little question as to who is responsible: Invidia. Despite the great victory at Zeidenburg. Malocchio Aderre's forces continue to menace Krezk, and his bands of mercenaries and tercios continue in their other task. The killing of all Vistani who come across their path. Some whisper that some agents of the Dukkar have even sought out local mercenaries in Barovia to aid them in their hunt for their lord's great enemy. A bloody reminder of the specter of war that continues to loom over Western Barovia.
