Is this news too good to be true?  The notion crosses some minds.  Where did this rumor begin?  Could it be that this vrolok is the very source of this rumor?  Who would benefit the most from such a rumor other than herself?  While some within Vallaki may be inclined to accepting good news, simply because of its appeal, with no doubt there are many who are far too wary to accept everything they hear at face value.  Things are rarely as they appear on the surface, here in the lands of mists, here in Vallaki.  Besides, who are these so called "goodly forces."  What is their story?  Where is the proof of this vrolok's destruction?

Somewhere, in a far, far away Land...



-"Chomski, Chomski! Folk in town be saying tha' Vrolok Tatyana, be dead!"

The peg legged frowned as he leans exhausted on his chair, his eyes measuring at that moment as he stood spitting on the ground bitterly.

"I be dead as well! An' yet' 'ye still report 'te meh!

Amanar were dead! Gone! An' I dug him out Of his Hole!

Markova ain' dead! Who killed 'er?! Find out, 'cause as far as this goes, Imma do as planned!"

"-Chomski, Uhh, Sir, what's this black Powder do?"

Word spreads in the lowest parts of the Slums of the boxing match being a success; those assisting mention the humiliating defeat of a big Falkonovian to a little Fey girl.

The next militia members to fetch meat from their supply dump in the slums will find they are lacking a great deal of meat, the majority simply torn off by a jagged knife and carried away.

Rumors are circulating that Rulinus the Ratter, is actually a weather witch and responsible for all the horrible weather in vallaki. He can call lightning and makes arrows of light appear out of nowhere.

In addition... he might even be responsible for the overpopulation of rats himself. He even looks like one to begin with. It is not entirely impossible he uses his facade of buying dead rats to bring them back from the dead in horrible and ancient rituals as ratmen!
Has been described as a sometimey player

A horse drawn carriage is seen pulling up in front of the Sanctuary of Eternal Dawn shortly after sunrise. Father Ilie is seen hurriedly ushering two children inside the carriage to be whisked away as fast as the horses can gallop.

Maryn watches from a nearby shadow, and taps her lip thoughtfully, making a mental note to speak to the priest when he will not likely be busy with morning duties.

*There is grumbling in the shadows and from bended knee while scrubbing the floors of the guards which have gone to far.*

Incessant hood checks on the same people even though they are known by name and dress, working with Ezrite cultists using witchery, torture of a man for asking the guards to not spill blood in a holy place, rape of a woman as a form of punishment, arresting of an innocent priest for his faith alone. The heavy handedness of the guards must be stopped. The Devils Dogs are corrupt to the core.

A small contingent of guards entered the temple of the Morninglord recently.
They brought with them two shackled man and left shortly afterwards, leaving the men behind.
One of the two was wearing a soldiers uniform!

"He will no longer bother you nor any other again. . ."

"Good, good."

*Then the sound of them exiting together could be heard. *

Whispers begin to spread of the return of the Cult of Zhakata, that the devourers performed a fel sacrifice on Lysagia Hill, and someone...unwholesome, and utterly evil was summoned. A simple message spreads through the undercurrent of dive bars and taverns, betwixt outlanders and natives who care to listen to such talk of evil-

This time on a larger sheets of parchment, the three symbols appear again overnight, abruptly tacked to a few road signs in the slums district.



On closer inspection, there is another character written faintly.

Rumours persist among the locals of a young boy in the slums being the only surivor from an attack that killed the rest of his family. Young Ivan the chimneysweeper is very fortunate, one old lady mentions. Another comments on how some Ezrites were seen asking strange questions not long after the incident.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but having the ability to face it.

Recently at the militia hq, a tattered uniform and standard issue leather jerkin were found laying close to the door. Both were soaking wet and full of holes, propably made with a blade. Both of the outfits had a small piece of cloth with the initials "T.A", sewn on the collar. Some think the uniform most likely belonged to militia trainer Thomas Ashford who has been missing for a long time.

*Locals, both man and women murmur their surprise to see one of their own having converted to the sun cult. Some shake their heads in wonderment as they watch the cultists disperse into the slums shelter*

Another tragedy hits the Militia. Neuri struck another man days after the massacre that cost four their lives. The Morale is low and militia are ordered to lock all doors and keep movement to day hours.

The storage locked, while some men pick up the pieces...

After the many casualties inside city gates a soldier of the morninglord is seen patrolling the streets at night and early morning

often the screeches of large and monstrous weretas are heard, and their maimed bodies found in the morning bearing marks of broken bones and deadly spikes

Right after as the citadel was attacked a naked, peg legged,hideously looking dwarf, was seen stumbling and running into people in the streets of the slums. After running into several people and even buildings.The dwarf finally staggered into an alley and disappeared.

Rumors verified by the poor of the slums, the Red Vardo Trader opened a small soup kitchen in the south of the district right out of an abandoned shelter. Without taking coins in return the members of the traders generously offer bread and meat to the line of hungry Barovians.

Tigan's rest echoes with cheers and songs most of the night as Zina pours round after round of free alcohol paid by the Red Vardo Traders, all at the inn celebrating the life and death of Emilan Iorga, the one who fell to the explosion during the market.

He was always the life of the party!

              A great dart player.. we'll miss him!

                                  Ooh free ale? Sure! Cheers for Iorga!

Rumors about the return of old woman Wasiweska starts to flourish. She's been seen peddling her potions, telling fortunes, curing the ill and giving general advice to whomever seeks her out. Some say you're best to stay well away from her as she wields strange powers and even a sullen look can set her off. Others claim she's just a nice old woman that cured their children from illness and wouldn't even accept payment.

Valko and Valentina Stravokov were seen exiting the Hospice, both in wedding attire and making off east through the city together.

Rumors spread among the peasants that a rather attractive Barovian woman has been seen outside of the militia quarters, swinging away at a practice dummy with a short sword. It has been said that any passerby who catches sight of her has stopped, stared, and then walked off laughing, for it is obvious she is not very good at all.
