[talk that "the black Paw of the mountain" is active around the village lately. Rumors go about how there was a lot of noise in the night, banging and what sounded like bear growls. Of course others just blame outlanders for stirring up trouble or the cause of all this ruckus.]

A man clad in snow white steel armour and clothing, which was quite stained, by most likely blood and some kind of green goo, and a man clad in full plate, a strange duo has spent the night talking in the tavern.
Their words often hushed, but other times quite distirurbing....
"The man who acts like a beast is still a man. The beast that acts like man is still nothing more but a beast. To kill the former may taint your soul, to kill the latter may save your fellow mens life."
The locals obviously steered away from them, the guard often sending a glance at them, since it is not often that too well armed men come to visit their humble little village.

There have been a number of attacks in the Village of Krofburg. A growing number of bodies are being found drained of blood, the attacks show the signs of a vampire, yet they are more vicious than one would normally expect.

Frequently, a young woman in red has been seen around Krofburg, walking the streets in the wee hours of the day. She always vanishes before dawn, leaving in her wake bodies drained of blood. Sobbing and crying can be heard during these early hours. One could only assume the blood moon was behind these vicious attacks, and the mournful crying come day break.

   Rumors spread through Krofburg about the elite squad of Vallaki Garda known as squad III traveling to Kroburg to aid the people. When they began their trek to the mountains, they were met with hushed mockery and unwelcoming eyes. The Town seemed surprised when the men returned, battered and bruised. No one knows what happened to squad III out on that mountain. No one knows the dangers they faced and triumphed over. It seems that they returned victorious, having vanquished an enemy that wished to disrupt the way of life of the Krofburg citizens. They can rest assured now that the sons of Vallaki came and restored safety to Kroburg. They were heroes now, despite no one knowing of the terrible challenges they overcame for the sake of Barovia.

The posters are removed again by the same woman. Some recognize her as the daughter of the late garda Dumitru Vasilovschi.

  Word spreads around Krofburg about a dark knight wandering the mountains around the village, especially at dusk, rarely during the day. As he seems to avoid the people, one can only guess his motives or if he is a threat or not.

A grisly sight greeted the sleepy village of Krofburg on a recent cold morning. The local memorial, where the villagers had long buried their deceased, was found to be disturbed and graves dug up and the bodies missing. One of the local guards was found torn up by wolf claws, savaged and covered with fur from the animal.

Wolf-prints and hair in the muddy soil around the grave also suggested wolves to the concerned townspeople, and word spread that the particularly harsh winter had driven wolves into more and more desperate actions, such as scavenging the graves of the dead. The Krofburg village guards are preparing themselves for more wolf attacks.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but having the ability to face it.

A middle-age Mordentish woman has arrived in Krofburg, equipped for the cold weather and trials of the mountains. She moves stiffly, her back, occasionally, seeming to give her great discomfort, which she attempts to bear with only quiet grimaces of pain. Staying at the local inn, she spends most of her time there, asking polite questions to those that would share rumors of the disturbed graves and sightings of wolfprints and fur.

Curiously, she seems more than a simple traveler, as an ornately scabbarded sword is nearly always strapped at her waist.

A man in armor of taupe and grey has been making regular stops at the Wandering Billy. He only stays for a mug of hot water and some goat stew before hiking back up into the mountains.

Krofburg is kissed by an unseasonable winter morning, one that brings with it ill tidings, of an innocent family slaughtered. White fur tracks through the village, covered in blood. The villagers are quick to blame the nearby crag cat population, spitting curses at whatever emboldens and empowers the creatures. Husband and wife Belododia are quickly buried in the packed dirt, and the whole mountain community laments that there was nothing left of their poor girl Sylvie to bury...

Concerned for the safety of himself and his workers, a superstitious low level supervisor within the mines workforce spends contemplative time within the Morninglords shrine as a result of the ominous omens befalling the village.  Here, he takes to silent prayer, seeking a sign from the Dawn as to what these portents may be, speaking with the local priest and trusted workers alike for what they think may be amiss.

Smoke can be seen emitting from the cliffside of Krofburg's vineyards, where the wolves often dwell. Before it started, a man wearing a suit of armor arrived in the settlement.

Even with the tremors and other ill events that have plagued Krofburg in the recent weeks, villagers of the mountain town have noticed a Dementiluese man, visiting and leaving the village often. The man, a courier it seems, stops by the Bellegarde building on each of his visits. Rather he is on business for the Agency, or is stopping to seek employment with them, is as of yet, unclear.

Uneasy whispers around the mountain town start filtering through the Wandering Billy's tavern of mountain goat carcasses being found along the road between Krofburg and Vallaki. While one might lay the blame on the crag cats, whispers are that it is something much larger. One herder even swore he saw the prints of a hunting cat that were bigger than the size of a man's foot.  Whatever the cause, it seems it is only one thing after another for the hardy men and women of the mountain village.

Almost as quickly as they appeared, the signs of the unusal predator have vanished from the mountain region. Perhaps whatever it was was driven off or something bigger got ahold of it. Either way, the villagers rest better knowing it is gone.
