A recently burnt witch has been seen frequenting the Lady's Rest and the western outskirts in general. The man is rumoured to have been beaten, burnt, and his body tossed into the sewers. Witchery is suspected. The man wears a strange, spiky robe, and seems to ignore any reference to the burning.

The beast of a woman known as Marinah, seems to have learn how to wear a dress properly and a big black fancy one at that. she also seems she have learned Al natural'e isn't the best way to show your beauty and seems to have covered it with makeup, and blush. Some say she maybe morning the death of Cezar, some say she has finally cracked it so much she appears normall, some even murmur more extreme stories of the famous black carrige picking her up, and the count himself collecting her personally, but these seem far fetched for those who did not bear wittness

Radu has seemed a bit down lately.. If not to say hurt and broken. As he claims he was unable to defend the inn and its owner from savage monsters on a several occasions. His bandaged form does not hold the haughty pride it used to but instead slackens as he leans on his massive maul.
The inn-keep also wears several bloodstained bandages from an attack on one dark night..

The Ladies Rest seems to have an infestation of rats.  Rat dung is everywhere, food always seems to be pre-nibbled, and holes appear in adventurers clothing that stay there.  Occasionally, some of the larger rats get bold enough to go out while people are around, nibbling on whatever they want while they're still around.

Over the past couple weeks, Radu has chased off a man that he says is same werewolf that the Vallaki guards burned.  Some discredit the rumor stating that the guard took care of it and knows someone who helped.

Others believe him, as the guards did not make the burning a showcase as they usually do.  Also, among the outlanders Radu is a very trusted individual.

Despite the fun activites inside the inn at night, another outlander was attacked by a large hairy beast man. Another person was knocked down by a swipe of its claws as it retreated to the north with a piece of its victem.

Knowing residents shake their head in wonder, knowing what this "hairy beast man" might be and what injury from it could bring.

many rumors errupt of a viscious pack of werewolfs roaming the outskirts..

alone this may not frighten outlanders much, with the knights of the dawnlord so close, but atlas rumors seem to spread that the wolves work prefectly as a pack focusing on the weaknesses of the dawn church and outlander groups.

some hope flickers saying a few nights have managed to nearly kill one or two of the beast, but it's soon quenched when they hear those same knights were tossed around like rag dolls by a much larger beast.

A young halfling frowns at the spreading news of this "undead hunter;" as she overhears such gossip, she makes quick notes in a book partly written in her own hand, and partly in another's.

She mutters, in Darkon language and accent, pausing for a second as she looks over the other's writing. "If I have to, I won't let her harm you. I hope you're safe..."

At the bottom of the book's freshest page, a string of underlined Darkon language symbols stand out. "Need a name!"

Word spreads of a recent confrontation at the Lady’s Rest between Private Katzinkaly, along with fellow militia men, and a tavern full of Gundarakites who refused to comply with hood checks.  The band of supposed Gundarakites were clad in muted reds and greens, and wore concealing kerchiefs.  The men were believed by some to be in possession of weapons, which is a serious violation of local Law due to rebel uprisings.  Furthermore, by some accounts, as the militia men began to give chase to the kerchief masked law breakers, volleys of fire lit arrows streaked through the night sky towards the militia men, who decided against giving further chase.

Rumor has it that a Gundarakite man was chased down by militia men and outlanders at the western outskirts, and beaten until unconscious. 

Reports of the incident vary however. 

By some accounts, the man was merely a Gundarakite making a delivery of fish to the Lady’s Rest, and was mistaken as a rebel.  Those inclined to believe in this account also suspect that any Gundarakite will be labeled as a rebel, so long as the Vallaki militia continue to pay handsomely for each rebel head. 

By other accounts, a group of Gundarakites, suspected rebels, clashed with the Red Vardo Traders at the Lady’s Rest; what this conflict was over though is anybody’s guess.  Those inclined to this account of the story, also claim that the Red Vardo delivered the same Gundarakite man, but mangled and severely beaten, hours later to the Citadel to receive their reward.

A public execution of this trouble maker is expected to take place soon.

A not so uncommon event occurs again at the lady. A young woman, by figure and voice as she remained always hooded, was seen talking with Jimmy, Saul, and Raphael. The woman went from being disorientated and upset to angry with Jimmy during her conversation; apparently some reference to "sweet-cheeks" and "a spit over a fire" were exchanged. After some bit of discussion at the large table the woman departed with Raphael and was last seen heading into the city with him. She never lowered her Hood that any other patron saw

An Elven woman was attacked in her own room within the ladies rest, she fended off this attacker, as his hands tried to choke the life from her.  Luckily her cries where heard by patrons drinking downstairs, the elven woman stunned her attacker and locked him within her room. The would be assassin made his escape by smashing through the window and fleeing into the nearby woods.

The very same woman was brought into the temple hours later, once again another attempt had been made on her life.  A passer by saved her from the hands of the dark hooded figure, once again he avoided direct conflict, and fled into nearby woods.

Rumors, backed up by blood stains and scarred wood and eye witnesses, claim that calibans raided the Lady’s Rest just after sunrise yesterday.  Some say an outlander spotted two calibans sneaking through the back door, which was foolishly left wide open.  Others refute this claim though protesting that near a dozen of the filthy calibans stormed the kitchen.  A band of outlanders heroically charged right in after the calibans.  One of the calibans was slain by the outlanders, while another was bludgeoned by Radu’s hammer and eventually dragged off to the citadel.  Due to the heroics of some of the outlanders, some who paid dearly with their lives, the caliban raid failed. 

What some find more distressing, is that while during the bloody ruthless melee with the two calibans, someone, or something, likely a witch, appeared and uttered strange words that spread confusion and panic among the outlander heroes.  The outlanders after slaying one caliban, then turned upon one another, hacking and slashing.  The witch vanished just as suddenly as “it” appeared.

The Escape and Menace of Dr. Payne & His Monster

(http://cientifica.eu/blog/wp-content/uploads/2007/09/mad_scientist.gif)


The monster of Dr. Payne continues to rampage to the west of Vallaki.  Some claim the beast stands as tall as a tree, and has been uprooting trees and using them to bash barns, bludgeon cows, and batter farm equipment. 

Others refute such descriptions of the monster, and claim the Monster changes forms, disguising itself among common forest animals and barn yard critters. 

Still others say none have laid eyes on the monster itself, and have only seen the menacing work left in its wake upon the western countryside.

Dr. Payne, the mad scientists who is responsible for the monsters’ creation, had been captured and was being held prisoner deep within the dungeons of Zeklos Keep until this past week. 

Dr. Payne and His Monster are loose!

Two men--one of them a petite elf, the other, a towering human figure--were seen entering a room at the Lady's rest together with two incessantly giggling women, and a priestess of Ezra.  Shrieks, thumps and endless amounts of giggling and cackling were heard from the room, as well as talk about rope, iluskan curses and a stuttered question "When are you going to take advantage of me?"

All that's left as evidence is a set of bloody sheets, a half-chewed white petal and a puddle of vomit next to the table and the cushions in the corridor, outside the rooms.

The well-known Lady Markova made a donation, as she is used to do.
Patrons of the Lady's rest saw her handing it over to a young foreigner Warden of the Ezra's Faith.
The Anchorite seemed to be slightly embarassed.
Nobody knows if he was embarassed because the Lady was the most beautiful he's ever seen orfor the large ammount of money she donated to the Church.
Furthermore,  someone heard she invited him to visit the Keep.

When the day came, he went to the Church for delivering the Lady Markova's donation to Toret Murgur, directly.

Words of warning to all fey and elven kind.  Villagers in Vallaki have been attacking elves on sight.  In one story told, the limbs of an elf were torn apart with the use of ropes and horses.  Another account tells of a mob of villagers dragging a fey man through the village and to the western outskirts, where they proceed to lynch the fey from a tree while the guards on wall duty stood idly by.  It is even said that one of the villagers, when a priestess of Ezra attempted to intervene on the fey’s behalf, was beaten with a stick. 

It is no surprise that the villagers have no love for the fey.  When some outlanders tried intervening on behalf of the lynched elf, the villagers accused the elf of having stolen their shadows.

Rumor has it that a man clad in full guard apparel stepped into the Lady’s Rest, at night time no less, and demanded at the top of his lungs that everyone stop what they’re doing and pay taxes in the name of the Count.  What brings some to laughter, is that what the so called guard hadn’t counted on, was that a real guard was within the tavern.  Once it became apparent that his plans had run amuck, he fled, having by some accounts used witchcraft to evade capture. 

A week later, a guard at the outskirts approached what seemed to be an Anchorite of Ezra, dressed in the green robes with white trim, and when asked to remove his hood, the man simply fled, which leads some to suspect this may be the same man who posed as a guard the other night.

Not all is at is appears to be in Vallaki.  Mischief is at hand.

Anna was 3 months pregnant, and due to complications stemming from a miscarriage brought on by the attack, she perished a few hours later from internal bleeding, despite the best efforts of local doctors, the Chiurgeon Jusuf, and all the powers of the Priests of the Morninglord. Her funeral was held the next day. Dragomir Katzinkaly was said to look half dead at the affair, and said little but goodbye.

Every night he stays there, frantic rage and fear filled screams for Anna echo through the inn from whatever room he stays in. Good thing he doesn't sleep often, right?

A gnome, a bit small even for a gnome, three feet tall, maybe thirty pounds appeared in the Lady's Rest inn with a burns all over his face.  He calls himself "mostly" Zook and ran around demanding drinks from everyone, forcing several people to drink, even got knocked around a bit.  He seemed to be completely hysterical, complaining about wights, monsters, and mean humans trying to beat, rob, kick, and even set him on fire.  The episode ended with a drunken Zook in a bed.

Bianca seems rather put out about a recent commotion. Apparently part of her kitchen was practically destroyed, and among the mess of broken crates and food, a half elf, was found laid out on the ground, blood caked on her face and  bloody wood underneath her nails, apparently from the nearby broken crates. She seemed rather terrified, and hesitent to speak at all, and after a brief interaction with two patrons, she stormed out, leaving Bianca with the mess, and everyone quite confused as to what exactly happened.

There are rumors of some witchery and murder that took place last night at Lady’s rest.

Some witness say that darkness enveloped a man who tried to touch a fey woman and that the man was murdered by some robed and hooded man, seemingly of fey posture. The murderer ran away while the old man in Zarusian colors was left at the bar in front of Bianca in a pool of own blood.

Was it an assassination or maybe some curse lingering over the female fey? There are different rumors of what could cause the death of the Zarusian.

A ghost haunts the bar at Lady's rest... some can see it once it gets dark outside, some can feel its presence when heading towards the rooms upstairs, or having a drink at the bar.

Some people could feel a chill falling on their skin, while others could swear they had murderous thoughts once they were near the place where a man was killed few nights ago at Lady's rest.

Those, who noticed the ghost while and could distinguish a form from the blurry air, could notice the blood was pouring out of  the ghost's moth and sliding down a long grey beard, yet it was not falling down on the ground... there seem to be also deep wounds on his back from which the blood flows, but the pulsing curtain never reaches the ground. From time to time the ghost raises a hand and points something in front of himself with an old and bony finger. the ghosts tares blankly towards the bar stool and does not say a word to anyone, although those of strong mind could swear they heard some whispers in their heads, words as 'darkness' and 'murderer'.

There was also a strange sighting on the following night.. it seemed like some fey kneeled down and cut his wrist open near the bar... then ran away panicked into the Old Night shouting "the spirits cannot be appeased!!!"

During last night the Lady's rest seemed to be haunted by some ghost... Some of the bar patrons whispered among themselves that it was the same ghost of the murdered man that kept haunting the place for several weeks.

Some have seen a barovian lady almost screaming and seemingly losing breath... some Garda shouted to her and tried to help her.

Before the noon a loud wail echoed from the upstairs of the inn... and the ghostly presence seemed to vanish...


On the next day some locals heard a loud 'boom' coming from the upstairs of the inn... and a naked elf running down the stairs...

The elf seemed to behave strangely and was covered with bruises and burns.



Some could say that the Lady's rest is cursed...

Outlanders and Non Outlanders alike have been speaking of and gossiping about a strange raven that has been frequenting the Outskirts lately. Although the raven appears to belong to no one in particular, it seems to have taken a liking to the guard woman Izabela Popa. Many have noticed that the bird seems to be somewhat intelligent and gurgles out the few words it knows at random times. To those who have hung around it long enough, one would notice that the raven apparently goes by the name "Arthur."

Darkness covered the inn as a symphony of screams spilled out into the night. those foolishly gathering in the Outskirts, quickly realized their errors, leaving the Outlandish establishment undefended. the scene within could only be described as chaotic, as friends and companions quickly turned against each other in the unnatural darkness. rumors spread of the intent behind the attacks, however the blood stained floor and walls was a clear warning from the ancient terrors that have plagued these lands for centuries.

Warren Lucianovich, the local undertaker often working around the Outskirts cemetery, has been asking people to keep an eye out near the graveyard.. especially during the old night. He seems particulary grumpy that his work is being undone..

Apparently several graves have been robbed recently.. or at least disturbed. Most of them recent burials, simple outlanders with no headstones in place.. nobody who would be truely missed. But it is still worrying that an increasing number of corpses appears to either be missing.. or left mangled in their shallow resting place under the dirt. Missing limbs, eyes and fingers seem most common.. some ripped off, others seemingly cut off clean.

On top of that a rumor is spreading that the undertaker, together with a few outlanders, found back some of the missing recently burried corpses inside the catacombs.. right underneath the church of the coming dawn. This is suggesting a high ghoul activity in the region.

Another rumor claims the garda might have been after the burning of the Lady's rest.. it is after all a hideout for outlanders. This does seem as unlikely as a Gundarakite Rebel attack, if not more, even if taking the negative attitude towards the garda lately into account.

And an outlander was "granted" a burnmark in the middle of the street, apparently it was only the matter of a petty insignificant crime. Yet it drew quite some attention, although nobody bothered to reach out a hand as the man's hand was forcefully branded with the letter "T".

A hin that claimed to be second militia even seemed to support the witch. Radu was very displeased when the witch stated he does not care for this establishment, he would burn it down along with the two patrons. The man even armed himself, as did one of the patrons, allthough he could feel the unpleasent gaze of Radu focusing on his back, and changed his mind.

The heavy wood only opens once that day, to let out the blood-soaked forms of a guardswoman, and the bouncer, who together carry the corpses of the entire Nepascu family to the Sanctuary of the Coming Dawn.

Two outlander men and a Gundarakite were seen carrying a screaming woman in black and red upstairs against her will. She resisted them, kicking and screaming in a panic all the way to the upper level.

The Storyteller, and his female companion are rumored to have appeared the prior evening. . . and was met abruptly by one of the Trustee's of the Wayfarers Kinship, a man in crimson armor with a white cross emblazoned on the tabard. It is said he refused their narrative, and  torched them with a wave of incredible holy energy.

Murmurs spreads about a man in black ragged leathers who got his sword out, letting out a cackling laugh as he threatened the throat of an innocent-looking female elf, as the rain fell on the outskirts in mid-day. Some of the people present were confused and watched the scene in awe as others took out weapons of range, bolts and arrows pointing at the mad man. In less than a few seconds, the man was shot to the head, fell dead, leaving traces of blood on the elf's green dress and the grass, which had no hard time recognizing the taste of the red liquid. The aggressor was then moved to the church, later entered by another man  leading some guards. This man had his features hidden under his hood, cloak and coat black as night, only letting a bit of golden silk seen on his torso, who was mostly seen selling in the same outskirts with the same outfit. Some may have seen a body being carried by the guards towards to Charnel House afterwards.

"In the middle of the old noapte, the Lady's rest door opened slowly, punctuated by the wolves howlings before an elven maiden, attire stained from the roads and soaked from rain entered the inn. Conversations momentarily died as the locals stared at the odd knife-ear making her way to Bianca, especially at the pair of greatswords in their scabbards on her back.
Only Bianca appeared familiar with the figure, the two exchanging gentle words in Balok before the elf grabbed a key on the counter and made her way up, drumming her fingers on a golden harp strapped to her belt. Some may have caught a glimpse of a Wayfarers Kinship amulet tied near the harp before she disappeared upstairs, bringing a new topic of conversation for the Barovian customers for the rest of the night."
