Left on the outskirts' notice board. The posters are often renewed. Some of them can also be seen in the mist camp.

And a pall upon the land;
But the People in their weeping
Bare the iron hand:
Beware the People weeping
When they bare the iron hand."

There has been talk of a ship that burned and sunk moments later in the Vallaki Docks District. Two very badly burnt oxen were seen about as they sunk with the ship. Not much was known about the fire but many speculate it was an accident.

Days after an apparent Invidian route in Wachter province, it seems the incursions decrease in its scale and frequency. Less often are attacks made outside of the borderlands between Invidia and Barovia save for isolated incidents. It seems as if they have had enough of their forays for the time being or other nebulous reasons for their seemingly abrupt withdrawal away from Vallaki. Now there is an uneasy quiet as the more familiar threats continue to hound the denizens of Vallaki and the region.

[It was a bloody day in Vallaki as the afternoon pressed on.  Rumors are a bound the locals that Corporal Stolojan was doing her morning patrols with two other privates when they came upon a Caliban in the outskirts.  Upon pursing him, he took her down fairly quickly with vraja while outlanders looked on, passively.  Very few made the call to help the guard in any case.  The wounded Corporal and her two privates then set back to the city but only to be ridiculed by a female wearing a strange helmet with grey steel colored armor and brownish grey pants.  The Corporal made to arrest the outlander and steel was drawn.  Blood soaked the grass as yet again, outlanders looked on as this happened as if it was some spectacle to the very guard that protects them and the local Barovians a like as they was slaughtered, murdered.  It is unknown where the corporal and her privates are at this time or if they even made it out of this whole spectacle alive.]

[a few days ago..]

Corporal Stolojan of the Vallaki Garda brought the witch and 'fortune teller' calling herself the 'Mysterious Madame Monet' into the Outskirts. The witch was garbed in a teal gown, and sported the Scold's Bridle; a headgear device which clamps down upon the tongue, making any speech impossible.
The witch was placed within a stocks set up by the Garda detail, and outlanders, and a large contingent of Sunkissers looked on as a mob of Barovian men hurled rotten vegetables, stones and manure at the accursed vraja practicer. She screamed and garbled nonsense throughout, before her spirit was broken and she broke down into sobs.
Some might suspect this mob to the the very same which sought to lynch the witch in the outskirts a few days prior.

After the humiliating punishment was discharged, the Sunkissers sought to help the bruised and bleeding woman, but she rebuffed them. The dark-skinned witch fled into the forest.. and has not dared show her face in Vallaki again.

A visceral scene unfolded in the morning hours as the Ghost Witch was finally located and put down by the mourning father known as Fearghas. He spat strange curses as he tore the heart from her chest. Onlookers observed in shock as the man got his vengeance, then fled with the heart still in his clenched and bloody fist

~ Dwarven thief in the Outskirt ~

Word is spreading that a dwarven thief stole a valuable armor from a certain dwarven smith. A reward worth even more than the stolen good is offered for the capture, alive, of the thief and the return of the armor. Information is scant about the thief himself. It was a male dwarf clad in dark leather, his features hidden under a hood. However the stolen armor is the sole of its kind made by its maker, made out of sturdy boiled gargoyle hide with the thickest crocodile lining possible. It can be recognized by the stylized Dwarven B sigil branded on the armor.
Best Regards!

The rumors state that a young woman garbed in gold and ivory silks, dark brown leather boots, and pinned up dark hair, was approached and arrested in shackles by no less then four guards in the afternoon hours. It was said she went along without resistance, although she looked quite terrified.

~ Dwarven thief in the Outskirt, Part II ~

As was witnessed by numerous people, the dwarven thief showed up again in the outskirt and was confronted by the dwarven smith. After angry and harsh words were exchanged, the smith would have knocked out the thief with a single mighty strike with the flat side of his axe. But as he was about to recuperate his property, someone unwittingly healed the thief, whom used the following confusion to escape.

There is still no name attached to the thief, but a clearer look could be obtain: a gray skinned bald duergar, with the dwarven runes for "Thief" tattooed on his chin. A moody dwarven smith keeps repeating to all listening that he offers a platinum gilded weapon for the capture, alive, of the duergar thief.
Best Regards!

As the sun rose above the Outskirts this day, those milling about before the walls of Vallaki would have their morning interrupted by a figure clothed in the black green garments of a female Ezrite Zealot, dashing out of the Lady's Rest. The Ezrite, who was wearing the armor of a Templar, seemed to have been in tears, as she hurried off westward along the Old Svalich Road.

A beautiful man was seen arrested in the Outskirts tonight, and taken to the Citadel for possession of a firearm. Charismatic and an expert musician, some were seen having been left startled and shocked by the event as it unfolded, not expecting this turn to dramatics. Rumor says this man was not found sentenced to die, but only, to the stakes.

A man identified as Voldymyr Brusilov, Sargent of the Vallaki Garda walked into the Lady's Rest and confessed to crimes of treason out loud to the patrons of the bar. He then finishes his confession by knocking a young woman unconscious and disappearing into his own shadow.

In the early hours of the morning Garda can be seen arresting Dorian Bladeweave in the Lady's rest with the charge of "Conspiracy to Murder Vistani". He was promptly marched towards the city shortly afterward.

The Red Vardo Captain Arseny Viktorov was seen speaking with a well-dressed Lamordian man. Suddenly, the Vardo drew his weapon and made an attempt on the other man's life. Viktorov gravely wounded the Lamordian before guards and onlookers tried to stop the scene. The Vardo eventually surrendered to the guard and shouted as he was carried away.
