Anyone who happens to stroll through the Quartier Savant may notice a large mark carved into the backside of the building aside from the Gendarme office.

A young man and woman are seen leaving Ceazar's cafe and talking outside for a time. The man wore a tricorne and was clad in rustic apparel in the colours of House Desrosier. The woman, recognisable for a local artist, was dishevelled and clearly inebriated. The pair then walked off arm in arm, the woman fondly toying with the man's sleeve. The pair proceeded all the way to the hotel but somewhat surprisingly for such rumours, the man left the hotel some fifteen minutes later. Alone.

Muffled noises erupt from within the soon-to-be art studio, formerly known as the Club l'Occultiste, as its former decorations are 'cleared away' in the establishment's first avant-garde art performance.

Over the past days the Gendarmerie has seen a constant thrum of activity. Over a day ago, a contingent of Gendarme were seen escorting two women, one with white hair, out of a warehouse, through Publique and into the Gendarmerie. The white haired woman appeared to need help from a Gendarme to walk. After a day and a night of activity the women are released.

The showing of Rouen Chasseur's works at the Recondite Atelier is disrupted by a theft.

Inky shadow shrouded one of the pieces for a span of seconds. In its wake the painting was gone and a canvas with words in Low Mordentish is left in its place:

"This piece was so nice that I paid the only true price."

No other trace of the thief is left behind.

An overcast day within the Quartier Savant is punctuated by a pair of men shouting, and then a woman's screams. Several Gendarmes respond to a scene of disorder at Caf Chez Lon, soon after escorting away a shaken server and a gentleman of means whose fine waistcoat's been ruined by his own blood. Through broken teeth, he shouts that he's been assaulted with a hammer by a troubled local artist... The gentlefolk nearby lament being put off their appetites by such brutality, and some even whisper into their coffee that such things never happened in the finer parts of the city under the Provisional Government.

Seemingly overnight the exclusive restaurant L'Eclipse was shuttered. Furniture was removed in stacks, hired movers directed by the dark haired owners of the establishment. Over the following days fresh rugs, tables, and large sealed boxes were brought into the building their contents not yet apparent...

The young Gendarme Dorian de Sauvre seems to be pulling long hours at the Gendarmerie these days; though when some ask after him, they're informed he's in the morgue, where he seems to be standing vigil.

Last night, anyone who passed by Shop II (otherwise known as La Fleur d'Ambre) would have heard a flurry of pained words, sobs and loud wails - an outpouring of grief that went on unabated for hours, until finally the chorus of broken hearts quietened.

Two Gendarmes, one the unmistakeable figure of the one-eyed Rouen Chasseur, and the other a younger, blonde man, were seen escorting the shackled figure of the Baron Jehan d'Alard into the Gendarmerie. The Baron seemed clearly quite affected, yelling uncountenanceable threats to his Gendarme escort.

A Warden of Ezra with cheerful disposition is spied posting notices about the district; she greets all who she encounters, offers aide to those who appear to need it, and spends time offering healing and comforts to those that accept at whatever cost to time and resource may be required. She encourages those that see her posting the notices to attend.


The notices indicate an upcoming Fifth Day Sermon to be held at the Ste. Mere and identify the Warden as Abigail Shuttleworth, the woman holding the event.
