Word spreads amongst the outlanders of a man murdered and robbed in the Ladies Rest by a Falkovnian. The Red Vardo Traders interceeded quickly, capturing the man for the affronted for a minimal fee, and wishing him well, then leaving the body for the harmed to deliver to the Garda.

Perhaps the R.V.T. can be the source of justice and moderation the city refuses to give the hated outlanders. For a price, of course...

Rumours fly, of the gorey brawl at the Lady; the fight was started by a drunk man, hitting the man commonly known as "Borhs", with a tankard. He demanded an apology, and the man tried to flee. He wrestled the man, into a lock, and then tore out the drunk's cheek with his metal hook. The last thing he said to him, was: "Ye payed yer due".  After, a man about town, Marius, told him he wants him in the ring at the up and coming boxing match.

Rumors spread around the outskirts that unknown and unnamed person have donated 40.000 fangs to the orphanage, to make them able to buy the equipment they require to run the place and to make them able to get a better security for the children.
Most claims it is just rumors as who would make such an donation without taking any credit for it?

Rumours spread around the Outskirts of a cowardly attack on defenceless merchants by the loathsome undead known as Yves.

Rumors about the return of old woman Wasiweska starts to flourish. She's been seen peddling her potions, telling fortunes, curing the ill and giving general advice to whomever seeks her out. Some say you're best to stay well away from her as she wields strange powers and even a sullen look can set her off. Others claim she's just a nice old woman that cured their children from illness and wouldn't even accept payment.

Word spreads about the increasing violence in the outskirts. Outlanders and wretches alike defying Vallaki's Finest. Many mention the slaying and abduction of bodies by the womb freaks. Names amongst the victims speak of Alexi Toskalov and Izabela Popa...

One of the men of the Cult of Zarus is said to have been burned alive by denizens of the night. Various accounts of the incident circulate. But by some accounts, it is told that other outlanders were completely overlooked and left unbothered, as the calibans and outcasts all closed in around the lone man of Zarus, who was engulfed with witchfire and left for dead, the air heavy with the stench of seared hair and flesh.

*among certain circles of outlanders, word spreads of a man, perhaps a teenager cloaked in heavy travellers robes and hood, asking around for the services of an expert locksmith capable of making keys. Those capable should slip a note into the trash barrel behind the Lady's Rest Inn (PM) where it will be promptly recovered.  The pay is rumored to be quite generous.*

As night drapes her robes of starry darkness across Barovia, silence reigns, but tonight in the outskirts, a tune carried by a beaten guitar, echoes through the last snows of winter. A tall woman of a green shade, plucks away in hope to catch the ears of old friends and family.

A bald man with white beard is seen coming from the lake. He goes around collecting minks and other small animals. He even enters the sewers and comes back with the rats. Surpisingly he do not walk towards Vallaki to hand in the rats to the ratter but walks back up the road towards the Fishing Lodge.

Rumours begin to circulate of a man in white talking of Ezra to a man in dark brown overcoat right in front of the lady's rest and the debacle that followed when they took their conversation behind the inn.

Some say a criminal wanted in the zeklos lands attempted to murder the Ezrite. There are few specifics, as the criminal dissappeared in a cloud of darkness -in broad daylight!- while a terrible keening song was audible even in vallaki. When the darkness receeded a man in nightmarish armor was standing over, commanding a very short woman to look after some neck wounds the ezrite had sustained. Shouts of "Templar!" were also heard.

Large pools of dried up blood and evidence of alchemical fire can be found easily right behind the inn.

The ezrite was seen thanking the armoured man who then hurriedly left looking for someone.

This smith Hanae has recently been seen leaving the Outskirts and heading north.  With her bag packed full she doesn't appear to have the intent of returning to the Lady's Rest anytime soon.  She leaves no word as to what her plans are.

An abnormal sight in the outskirts these few days. Lost and wearied nobles and servants were seen leaving the von Zeklos lands and moving to Vallaki, followed shortly by a few wounded soldiers. Since then, families of peasants and farmers have been making their way from the western lands towards Vallaki, their livestock and goods in tow. They try as best as they can to ignore the outlanders and other freaks along the way.

A moon elf was seen carrying a bloodied bag towards the temple, and a spear which looked like one of light carriers' spears. Some say the strange appearance is somehow connected to what happened at the temple during the night.

Other witnesses say that the elf has a name "ven-nie", "ven'la" or something similar to it.

Morniglordians where seen the other day clearing up fallen debris around the church in the outskirts, and cleaning up dust and debris inside after a huge explosion beneath the temple was heard and felt in the night. However no one is saying what caused the explosion.

Word seems to be on the lips of a few, of a murder that has occurred south of the Lady's Rest, in the woods just outside Degannwy, the elven sanctuary. The victim, one Tarinyar Chevalier, was last seen entering the Forest with an unmistakably tall elven being clad in red and black. After a brief meeting, it seems they left the peaceful haven at the same time, where a gruesome attack ensued. A wild, brooding sense of feeling seems to linger in the air at the scene of the crime, and there are whispers of a trail of mysterious scorchmarks making their way deep into the woods and ending right at the western forest border.

Those who knew the lady Tarinyar as a friend and companion, grieve the loss. There are also whispers of some ongoing investigation.

[A Small Girl who goes by the name of Ana was it is rumoured actually brought back to life by the Cultists of the Morninglord temple, what was strange was that despite speaking what seemed like barovian the dialect was not understandable by the Barovians in the temple at the time. She was last seen being escorted with another child towards the Orphanage.]

A pitic was seen giving the one finger wave to a Guardsman on the Western Gate today. Laughing as he dodged arrows. Yet another example of the mockery known as the Vallaki Guard.

A strange dark-clad man wanders into the Moringlord Temple and raises a dead friend.  The two tell the tale of an attack by fancily dressed vampires.  They say the name of one of their attackers "Ubul Von Buchvold" who oddly announced his full name before attacking them.

the Victims of old night cried tears of blood, the lament of Barovia's sorrow. blood dressed the wooden floor boards of the Lady's rest tavern, as screams and cries for help came from the outskirts. vampire's had once again left their mark on old night, a warning to those who risk to walk the utter darkness.... provoking old nights terrors.
