Barovia - Village of Barovia
« on: November 29, 2008, 08:43:59 AM »
Widows dressed in black are seen walking the streets in grief, the local community offers support to the women that lost their husbands, donations and food are being taken at The Blood of the Vine, where some mourn in their own way the farmers that were lost in the tragedy.

Several pesants are seeing reinforcing their doors with thick planks of wood, the attacks are still fresh on everyone's minds, people take every precaution to avoid being the next victim. Speculations as to the nature of the beast are vague, many attribute the recent carnages to one or some vicious neuri.

  The small shrine to Ezra, recently damaged by fire in an attack by a particularly cunning neuri, has been returned to its former state.  The marks of fire and smoke have been scrubbed clean, as has the blood of the unfortunate soul targetted in the attack.  The scorched grass outside already mixed by rain and snow into the earth beneath.

  Locals speak of an air of loss that clings to place now, and to the young half-breed that tends it.

  Most scoff when mention of it comes up, claiming that the Dilisniya poisoners and their whore god have simply reaped their due for the dead in Vallaki.

The small and meek Ovidiu arrived to the village a few months ago only, earning the glares of the gossiping population. Some rumors associates her to Noica, another fool from Vallaki. Certain women of the inn who spoke with Crina managed to gather a few information about her. A son in Vallaki, a family to care for. Whatever happened to *her* husband. Maybe he fell under some neuri's claws like the widows who still gathers at the Blood of the vine to weep on the still abandoned tables.

Seemingly bored and uninterested, the guard is often seen headed along the Old Svalich road either east or west to continue her patrols. Cleaning off branches and trees fallen along the road and killing wolves that would wander too close to the city. A large stack of dark wolf hide is growing in a barn next to the burgomaster's guest house, waiting for a better purpose some suggest.

In the local Temple of the Morninglord people going there attending rituals are meeting a rather silent and handsome man always there. Rumours are spreading rather quick, as the man has been seen often speaking to Vicar Miklos about vampires and witches. Someone also state that the man has been more than once harassed by a woman witch inside the temple itself. These rumours keeps him more isolated than ever. He seems scared to speak to any unknown people.

Hearing the rumors and gossip from travelers, and fearing for the safty of her family, Androvia packs her things and heads East out of Vallaki in the direction of the village.

Some folk whisper among each other about a large group of cultists arriving to the Village of Barovia recently. They claim to be some Order of knights. Some talk about also about a smoke over the woods north-east to the Village, that appeared on dusk on the first day of their arrival.

A bulky man clad in filthy armour, with the odd splatter of blood on him is seen wandering the eastern lands, peasants murmur of him being a 'Ladul Cultist' of sorts, although he is not trusted since his arrival the bandits that usually hold strong ground on the Lunar Bridge seem to have been dispersed, merchants are said to have a much easyer path to walk towards the city of Vallaki.

A wandering anchorite tends the small Ezrite shrine at the Village of Barovia, some recent signs of upkeep there.

A visage that could have been Ezra herself, a woman covered in mists, is seen giving coins to beggars.

A single ravens feather is left by the door of the diminutive church, a scroll tied together with a green ribbon.


Quote
Holy Sainte Marle, Icon of her Sainted Image,
Guide us, show us Your Path,
Help those in need,
Give strength to the weak,
comfort the sorrowful,
Kiss us with the kisses of her mouth,
For your love is better than wine,
sainte Marle, all who seek your help,
Experience your unfailing protection,
Amen.

For Several Nights in a row, villagers have reported hearing movement in the streets, rumours pass from mouth to mouth during the day that men have been stalking the streets at night, clad in darkness.

People are double locking all doors just to be sure.

A old man dressed in robes been seen wandering around the local area together with a woman dressed in tightly fitting clothing and a very large cloak. The woman being suggestive in her speak and the man smirking at her comments this duo seem rather odd but seemingly do not cause to much of a fuss and only the man enters the village now and then.

Those around the village and in particular speak of a heated argument between two of the 'sun kisser cultists' both arguing over the other's path's and morality. The two were last seen by two light carriers heading into the streets nearing dawn.

When dawn finally came there was a stain of blood on the streets of the fair village just outside the temple's gates. The skies seemed overcast and cloudly for most of the first parts of the morning.

Neither 'sun kisser' was seen returning to the temple grounds after their argument.

A fiery blaze is seen from the north west, of the outskirts in the Village. As an old abandoned farmstead was set ablaze sometime in the early evening.
Three people can keep a secret, if two of them are dead.

"Ridicule, pathetic, and unbecoming of Being Barovian."

Words describing the latest spectacle as witnessed by a few Village guards in front of the big decadent city gates of the Municipality of Vallaki spread at the Village of Barovia, where this gossip always finds receptive ears. The word on the lips of guards speak of the lost ways of their comrades in Vallaki, to allow the Outlander to wear the uniform. They speak in contempt and disgust of their lacking ways, of the other reality Vallaki faces when it comes to the domestic invasion of the outlander ways into their lives.

Talks are fueled by hearsay, by urban legends about native Vallaki women marrying filthy outlanders and alien races. The talks are shared in front of a warm fire, at the Blood of the Vine or on duty; the people feeling somewhat, distant from their bigger cousin; Municipality of Vallaki.

A coppery-skinned, long-haired elf in the lightest of fey armor regularly frequents the Village of Barovia carrying shipments of good from Vallaki. When gossip about the outlander garda comes up among the locals, he can often be seen frowning. But he appears to be wise enough to only share his opinion when asked, which naturally doesn't seem to happen much, if at all. The locals tolerate him and do business with him, but he too remains just a fey outlander.

A dark-green-clad man, a known Outlander regular presence in the Village, has been seen pinning a small note to a well. With some surprise the note is written in a very childish way, with a skull and two bones crossed drawn at its bottom.

"Nu enter. It's mult dangerous. A.S."

Some several nights ago the sounds of a skirmish could be heard in the streets and those brave enough to peek out of their windows witnessed a motely band of outlanders making their way to the Morning Lord's temple. A pretty young woman in revealing attire appeared to be carrying the pitiful, skinless remains of what could only be a child.

A short time later two of the swordsmen within the band, a scarfaced young man and a towering bulwark of armour and steel were seen in the Vine almost drawing blades on each other after much heated discussion.

At Mircea's foundry apparently a smith is leaving for those who need a series of weapons made of steel. If the smith is asked what they are for, he'll likely mention some one in dark-green-clad who left them there.

The materials left gradually seem to improve in quality. The man leaving them there is always the same.

Even some few armours have appeared in the same shop, besides the other steel blades. Nevertheless, the green-clad man has been seen waving the store-keeper with a "Adio for a while, spring is close."

The same man seems having started leaving very high quality bows in the woodwork shop of Alexandru Popovici.

In the early morning hours just before sun rise, the Burgomaster's Residence was beset by monstrous spiders, two of the guards succumbed to the poison and perished before the foul beasts were destroyed.
I survived the Blue Water Inn Massacre and all I got was this t-shirt.
