Title: Barovia - Wachter Province
Post by: Winter83 on June 10, 2012, 04:25:35 PM
Rumor spreads the the border outpost on the edge of the Wachter lands suffered a dire werewolf attack. Many tracks indicate there was a whole pack of large wolves that broke through the gate.
Many of the guards were slain, and torn apart. The innkeeper might mention two hunters who where staying in the inn that evening singing and feasting, witnessed the event and went after the beasts to track them down at the first rays of the dawn.

The Zeklos outpost on the border of the Wachter province seems to have a developing traffic of barovians as of late. Dialogues about the flooding near Krezk, some came to work in the mines, Constantin Vadim is seen often talking about trade and harvest with the locals. Hunters passing by, miners, woodworkers. Many stops to spend a few hours there before going on their daily work. Rumor is that Costa Vadim is still looking for willing workers who can help him in his developing trade. Cargo loaders, miners, smithes all are welcome.

Word of inner tensions, dismissals and discipline reigns among the Wachter House Guard. It is rumored that the House will be seeking new blood to replace those whom have been considered unsuited to uphold the high standards and tradition of excellence of the Wachter Family. The word is spread by a trader here, a merchant there, shared within and out of the serfdom that possible career opportunities might soon be opening up in Boyardom.

Other rumors speak that Lord Ivan Wachter has taken another, much younger woman, word speak of a Bastard child...

Smoke rises into the morning skies over the eastern regions of the Wachter Province, as several piles of corpses are burned by a robed, hooded man in black.  The corpses range between monster, wolf, and man, all tossed together into mass burns.  The stench of charred hair and flesh permeates the air, as the Fourth Sect continues to mercilessly slaughter those foolish enough to cause strife in the lands across the Luna River.

Two insurances are arranged to take any blame from investigations, one of which I can execute if need be to silence the trail forever. They have been inspired and are distributing the food and weapons within their slums to form a rebel militia. No evidence yet hints to outside influence. Vallaki is trying to recruit more but is thus far ignoring the growing faceless rebels in their midst. Such a glorious slaughter is brewing and I wonder which side will triumph.

[Hand written copies hung in the Province, Nailed to the gates of the outposts]
"To whom it may concern,

I Bianca Cardei, as a previous woman of the law, as an ex-corporal of the Vallaki Garda and ex-recruit after that do condemn Vallaki's Garda for the following reasons:

The first reason I have left the Vallaki Garda is due to their consorting with witches.  This is the most important of the Vallaki Garda Rules, we do not promote or consort with magic doers.  And by consorting, I mean sleeping in the same bed with them, associating with them and making dark deals with them.  Pacts.  I first witnessed this from Private Bogdan Antonescu. I also have seen this behavior from Private Allexandru Dimitri.  He goes out at night, near the well speaking to a known witch I call the 'Red Witch'.  When I reported these actions to Lance Corporal Florica Sima, she seemed to either not believe me or not to care.  I also reported them to Lance Corporal Vincent Zolokorov and he as well said he was going to report it up our chain of command but didn't.  Furthermore, the same Red Witch gave me a parchment to deliver to Bogdan.  I was curious as to why a 'witch' was giving me something to give to Bogdan.  So I looked inside and there in blue ink was writing that spoke of deep thoughts to Bogdan.  Telling him to come to the Port of Lucine 'once again'...and to meet her there and discuss things.  I reported my suspicions to Lance Corporal Zolokorov and we commenced a full body search of Private Antonescu.  He had many many letters on them.  Some with the same blue ink and others with a very different hand writing.  Most of it looked suspicious and there was one or two that gave specific names such as 'Milicent'.  An outlaw.  I told Vincent this and then Florica Sima came into the jails where Bogdan was being held and she demanded what was going on with her Private.  I explained to her that he was deep in with the witches.  And she seemed to ignore me and tell me to go.  She gave him all his effects back and released him halting the investigation. Since I have been back, Private Antonescu has left the garda into merely a shadow of its former self.  One of our rules is that we do not use explosives, but Private Antonescu is training his underlings to use Black Powder, illegally. And worse actions still I know Private Toma has been seduced by a vrolok, and Lance Corporal Vincent Zolokoro, has told me himself that he is in service with the Ulcisor vroloks.

Spoken amongst Gundarakites of the Wachter Province tell that a fellow of their kin is organizing an effort to repair the road to the south of Barovia of rubble, to reopen trade with the region.  Men parted with family in Zeidenburg and Teufeldorf are urged to assist in the effort.

The organizing work party, however small or large it might be, is said to gather on Thursday, December 4th.

Workers are asked only to bring tools they have permits for.


(( This is a Gundarakite-centric roleplay event.  There may or may not be many at all present, but if you play a Gundarakite, you may wish to be present.  You might even learn a bit about the sons of Gundar.  Don't expect to make any true progress, this is simply a flavor event.

Event is set for Thursday, December 4th at 7pm EST. Time is subject to change.))

Instead the carriage continues westward and stops in front of the Wachter Estate. Whispers and gossip soon alight as to the word of what business the von Zarovich have in light of increased encroachment by the rebels who have taken residence in Berez and the seemingly eerie silence that followed their advance north towards Wachter and Ionelus lands.

A mounted patrol circles around the Municipal borders of Vallaki, before settling briefly at the outskirts. A mounted messenger approaches the gathering and they set off toward the West, eventually reaching the Wachter Estate. After some bickering with the guards at the gate, they enter and stable their horses. Two guardsmen remain in the stables, whilst the other two head toward the Inn for some rest.

Despite their differences and the bad blood between them, the guards converse amicably with a group of fishermen. They bond over watery ales, stinking fish stew and over tales of the past. Eventually, the fishermen leave in the early morning with the exchange of a few waves, smiles and pleasantries - quiet bells denoting the departure of the vessels to search for an early catch.
