Title: Hazlan - Northern Border Region
Post by: Mrjunkie on September 11, 2009, 12:13:54 PM
Guards murmur amongst themselves of a man dressed in Red approaching Slaver Yussuf of the main fields and Biskop to the Cathedral with a prospect. After a long discussion the man claiming to have come upon Diplomacy of the Red Wizards under the Illusionists house baring a gift for Yussuf, the guards murmur of him testing the Biskops faith and willingness to expand the faith beyond the borders, even to offer workers for the foundations of a church in some forsaken land known as Barovia.
As the sun settles workers are gatherd and appraised before they are to be fed, exotic women and battle worthy men are lead away for some reason...guard joke that they are being fattend up for the slaughter

After several weeks the figure dressed in Red returns to the lands of labour, escorted by a large figure baring manyer weapons and a feral looking dame with wild black hair, after a brief conversation with Yussuf the Slaver they depart to the west, returning at dawn escorting a parade of women and children, they are swiftly stowed away in the hull of an awaiting ship...

~It's said some slaves have turned up missing from numerous owners, some likely suspect they ran away others hint at some grisly fate. Strangely however none have seen hide nor hair of those few that went missing most of which were last seen abed only to be found gone come morning. It's almost as if they just vanished into vapors or were eaten whole by some malignant denizen of old night~

Rumor has it the winter will bring a storm to Hazlan over the weekend, while this may only drive Masters to whip slaves harder, and for slaves to dread ever more there masters whips the event holds potential for those who were lead into the ilithids realm recently.

The Half Vistani known as Tarja has recently been seen taking brief trips to Hazlan.  She doesn't remain there for long, but seems to be searching for something or someone.  She keeps to herself for the most part and spends a good deal of time watching, waiting, and looking.

[For reasons unknown, Eleni of Toyalis, the Rashemi right-hand to His Omnipotence, Hazlik the Red, was seen by the jealous serfs and merchants passing through standing alongside her bodyguard and rumored paramour Zaglaive and several Hazlani soldiers armed with pikes. They surrounded a Vistani caravan and its driver -- for a moment, it seems they were to drag him to the Tables. Yet their interest did not lie with him, but instead with someone else -- when it seemed as though the trail had ran cold, they abandoned their search. Who they were after, and why they were after them, remains an absolute mystery, once that Hazlan's master has no desire to provide an answer for.]

[Rumours begin to float around of small-scaled fighting in the otherwise peaceful land of tyranny, attacks on a small camp of Hazlani soldiers left a tent in flames with multiple soldiers presumed dead or gravely injured. A few Rashemi were slaughtered in an apparent attempted mauling of a loyal Hazlani soldier overwatching the fields, leaving many tongues wagging in curiosity and horror of the sudden change of character of the otherwise docile, oppressed, Rashemi slaves in the region.]

— A red wizard and his assistant came from the Red Academy, taking a Rashemi serf at random to the monument upon the hill.  They are said to have stayed there throughout the night.  After their departure, fresh blood was noted splattered the floor of the monument—the abducted serf, however, was no where to be seen.  —

Rumor has it that soldiers are bringing in prisoners toward the Iron Citadel Fane. Alongside them are the Iron Inquisitors who normally arrive to round up heretics in the region. Given sanction to bring forth heretics to be killed in the name of the Lawgiver, it appears the Church of the Lawgiver shall make a show of it for the faithful and future heretics to behold...

A dommer gathered many gudkaedes in anticipation of  Iron Inquisitors with heretics in tow. With the arrival of a Kontor and more gudkades, the proceedings went on with a sizeable group of Hazlani subjects, Red Wizards, and foreigners who took an interest in the affairs. Six sentences were carried out on the prisoners condemned as heretics with the final being an Ezrite of the second revelation. At the end of the trials under the Church of the Lawgiver, all, including those condemned for punishment or death, gathered to stone the heathen until killed in a final, collective act of justice served in the name of the Iron Tyrant. In the nearby Nordenall Fane Biskop Balser could be seen speaking with Iron Inquisitors as gudkaedes gathered to consider their next step in combating Myterri.

Deep in the wilds of Tusmorke Skoven, night falls over the forest.  Suddenly, a man's incomprehensible, echoed shouting can be heard emanating from within the waterfall cave commonly known among the adventuring circles as "The Cursts Cave."  A near-blinding flash of light erupts from within, and a cackling laugh follows, along with the clanging sounds of brief swordplay.

Mere moments later, three figures burst from the cave mouth and scatter into the darkness, looks of complete and abject terror upon each of their faces.  A bare-armed man in brownish leathers with a bright green parrot and a raven-haired woman in black leathers clutching a short bow dart off to the south toward Ramulai, while a man in a red kilt, clutching the broken & lifeless body of a diminutive, red-haired elven lass darts off to the north at a completely unnatural pace.  Not far behind, a misty figure darts swiftly among the nearly bare, late autumn trees & shrubs, flitting in and out of sight in pursuit.

A cackling laugh echos through the pines, accompanied by taunting cries toward the man as he flees.

Minutes later, silence...

As the time draws closer to the Flaming Horse Festival, serfs can be seen setting up the field infront of the Vraylok's estate for the festival. The giant wooden horse being prepared for the festival later tonight
