Title: Vallaki - Sewers
Post by: Zedrik on July 22, 2010, 02:10:36 PM
It starts to filter around the shadier denizens of Vallaki that someone has set up shop in the sewers, beneath the slum district.
The merchant isn't specified to have a specialty, but carries various weapons, odds, and ends.

In numerous strange places graffiti is found. A pair of fresh painted "Bloody Eyes". Its meaning cryptic and ominous.

Something has begun inhabiting the sewers of Vallaki, something even the wererat gangs have been avoiding.  A cold has settled in the diseased tunnels, and rumors of a squat figure in dark armor abound.

[A simple handwritten note in trade tongue]

If you've found yourself shunned by society, you're not alone. If you're not content to slink in the sewers, come to the surface and seek out Sieglinde Lisseaux. She can provide for you. Leave word at Degannwy or brave the walk to the Camp in the Mists. I'll be waiting.

[The collective of Vallaki breathes a clean sigh of relief as the fetid, pestilent waters recede from the streets and gurgle back down into the depths of the bowels. The putrid, malodorous stench fading along with the draining of the septic tunnels beneath the Grey City. /Someone/ or /something/ has restored order and even the downtrodden masses feel a momentary reprieve of solace.]

After the water levels have receded a lone drow slaughters the vermin and skin changers of the abandoned shrine. She searches for evidence of something. She walks away frustrated but not defeated.

[Strange symbols have started to appear in the sewers beneath the Grey City. These simple geometric shapes are etched, or scrawled in blood, in alcoves throughout Vallaki's dank underbelly. What do these symbols mean? Who put them there? And do they have anything to do with the recent spate of attacks?]

Rumours of a shoeless, green-clothed Gundarakite living in the sewers begin to circulate, digging through garbage and talking to rodents.

"Funny rumor" goes among sewer denizen of a fully armored lady, who got swarmed over by rats over and over and laid in place for hours before someone came by and drove the vermin off.

Another rumor goes that their perfume, whatever they were using, was so awful that even the vermin didn't want a bite.

Rumors circulate of strange, guttural sounds drifting up from one or more of the sewer grates in the Residential District, produced during the dead of night. To someone properly versed, the description of these sounds almost matches that of verbal Abyssal phrases...

Perhaps if someone had the inkling, they might find something in the tunnels beneath...

Rat blood
upon the old brick
in the shape of a wolf's head.
Murine entrails peeled apart
with a chiurgeon's precision.
Whispers in the stinking depths
Scratching in the dark beneath
Shadows twist and writhe
and dance
in lupine shapes.

Lately, the rats have scurried more brazenly. They squeak as if chatting amongst themselves like tides moving among the miasma of sewage. Within the depths a rage-filled roar thunders throughout the tunnels. A call that summons many scratching of claws upon tile and whiskers tremoring with purpose.

Something has awakened in Vallaki's sewers and it is vengeful...

The sewers are bustling with rats running too and fro. They move with purpose and part like a sea by some unseen creature lurking within. Chanting could be heard followed by a gleeful roar. All goes silent for a minute until the sound of victory can be heard sung by some ravenous beast. A creature pleased with a feast...

Twisted shrieks echo throughout the sewers, as a runty, twisted creature scampers about the waste, repeatedly screaming a single word.

"Joy...! Joy..! JOY!!! Joy... Joy..."

Eventually they fade as whoever or whatever is making the noise quiets down and moves deeper into the sewers.
