What appeared to be a drow or more probable a regular human was able to walk into Vallaki shortly after sunrise, with punctured bite marks on her neck, causing a local guardsman to flee in terror after briefly confronting them.

The raven-haired girl who regularly cleans the old lodge in the Slums moves with observably less spring in her step, come morning. She airs the linens and sweeps, but every now and again pauses a moment to hold her hand to her forehead.

Once, she comes out of the lodge with her arms full of various empty liquor bottles. She winces as if in pain when they clatter into the trash barrel.

She closes the lodge door slowly behind her as she retreats inside and does not stir for the rest of the day.

My windows cracked, but they can be replaced.
Your arm will tire throwing stones my way.

A sickly man was seen staggering his way through the slums until he made it to the derelict hospice. He was scarcely able to make his way inside and has not re-emerged since.

[Not long after, the tall Lexington as seen going to the hospice, and spent much of the night working inside.]

Warmth comes from the Derelict Hospice, and soothing smells of medicines. Food and medicines are brought in, free for the taking, people are whispering...The tall red haired man who could only be Lexington seems to have brought in fresh wood, and began cleaning up the place. A "Free Food" sign has been hung on the door knob.

In the afternoon, a young Gundarakite girl is seen stumbling almost drunkenly down the cobblestoned streets- leaving a trail of blood in her wake. She is holding her left arm- which appears to have had a large chunk taken out of it, the bone of revealed. She makes it to Tigan's rest, and collapses in the street, before being carried away by a large Vos man.

A large group of men, and one female pitic, entered the sewers through a grate in the Slum District. A reduced, filthier and bloodier group re-emerged over an hour later, carrying the bodies of their comrades. Whatever they were hoping to do.. it seems they were unsuccessful.

A man in battered armor was seen staggering his way about the streets of the slums, bleeding from a score of mild to serious cuts. He'd lurched his way about the district in a daze, both hands clamped firmly over his right eye socket, until finally shouldering his way into the Sanctuary of the Eternal Dawn and disappearing within.

Dawn's first light reveals that during the night a grisly trophy has been stuck to the garda house door: a human face has been removed entirely from the skull and left along with a parchment of quasi-religious or perhaps philsophical ramblings.

The skin of the face is as brittle as the accompanying parchment, and close inspection indicates that someone appears to have desiccated it, as if attempting to make it into a crude and gruesome mask. Its condition leaves identification of the one-time owner impossible.
