During the fencing competition held at le Théatre de la Baie, a Chateaufaux citizen named Etienne De Jarjeyes has been reached by some news which caused him to retire. Many have seen him going rather hurriedly first at the local Bank, eventually to la Gendarmerie. Apparently the Captain Morgan Greaves is wanted with a bounty of ten thousand solars on his head. The charge is: attempted murder.

rumors go about that Edmond Montte, journalist and owner of Les Républicains Gazette, has joined the gendarme. The reasons for this are as numerous as they come. some claim he is doing it to get a story, some claim that his paper never was any good and needed to find another way to earn money. Regardless of the reason, one thing is for sure, Edmond Montte seems to be a gendarme now.

There are rumors that Edmond is looking for writers and journalists. Why though is the subject of much rumor mongering. Some are saying he wants to turn his paper bussiness over, where some are the opposite and claim he wants to hire them. and others have diffrent ideas and thoughts, but the one thing that is true in all those rumors, is that edmond seems to be looking for writers.

Recently Edmond feels as if he is being watched by somone or perhaps he is just being paranoid.

Rumors circulate about Edmond speaking with some men dressed in black long coats, Their outfits marking them clearly as outsiders. What is discussed and their goals are unknown. Whispers of some scheme or another plot that Edmond is preparing is just some of the rumors, some say they are private detectives that Edmond is consulting, others paint a darker image that they are Inquisitors form the Church of Ezra and Edmond is being hunted by them.  However few can say for certain what is the truth

Rumors are spread of a pair of men murdered in the lobby of the Governor's Hotel. One of the men was said to have been Karas Jeslyn, recently wanted by the Count of Barovia. The two men had been talking when a dark-cloaked woman had appeared seemingly from the shadows and put them both to a quick end.
Deceased: Karas Jeslyn

Professor Cornell of the University of Port-à-Lucine has been heard lecturing, as his usual, half-mockingly and half-seriously, about the recent news of a possible total war happening in the Core. He was seen drawing quickly a map and postulating his hypothesis, which he hoped will not come true. Yet, he sounded pretty persuading.



In red, little circles.
Turmoils in Invidia caused by the disappearance of the ruler Malocchio Aderre. Civil war: happening. Gundarakite rebels attacking more and more in main towns and countryside.
Gundarakite rebels starting a stronger activity also in Teufeldorf and Zeidenburg, Barovia. Yet to happen. Likely.
Sithican elves getting gradually the control of their territory and maybe advancing towards Invidia as act of revenge for years of domination. First part going to happen soon, second part unlikely.
Turmoils in main Dementlieuse, Mordentish and Richemuloise cities because of lack of bread. Going to happen if Falkovnia starts a war against Darkon.
Turmoils in Martira Bay, Darkon, for lack of bread. Unlikely, but possible.

In purple, lines.
Borcan army trying to invade Invidia profiting of its weakness. Likely.
Falkovnian army trying to invade Darkon profiting of Borcan embargo and higher loaning rates and subsequent Darkonian economical crisis. Very likely.

In orange, lines.
Werewolves from Verbrek would invade Invidia profiting of the lack of patrols at the borders. Likely.

Scandal and fear in Port-à-Lucine. Some gendarmes, at least three of them, have been found laying dead, their eyes glaring in the void, as a dreadful sight, or a terrible feeling, had caught them in their last moments. The cell of Borcan prisoner Luciana Armont has been found opened and empty. Rumours claim that the few prisoners in the nearby cells stated the lady just touched the Gendarmes with her bare hands. One of the gendarmes has been reported to be still alive though in a coma.

Nothing more is heard about the escaped prisoner. Some fear she may try to revenge on those who caused her troubles, others that she went on the run. A few others have been looking for her, unsuccessfully. The Borcan Widow is at large and free. And a beautiful danger lurks in the shadows.

Non non non!

Is heard loudly from Laura's fashion, a woman known to some as Desdemona Felatha is there picking out diffrent parts of fabric, dyes and similar. Taking dresses and remakes them in her own way aswell. She seem almost crazed and unpleased with the colours. She mutters about no leather dye and in the end she manages to come out atleast somewhat pleased with what she done. Spending almost two thousand alone on material for dresses.

[The column of gossip and novel from the Nouvel Observateur reads as follows.]


Confirmed: Renown Richemuloise horror novelist, André Bellamont's is staying in Port-à-Lucine - the buzz is on the lips of critics and admirers alike. Rumors that the controversial novelist has been invited by the wealthy entrepreneur & arts aficionado, Armand LeBarthe to help him achieve and I quote LeBarthe: "a theatrical masterpiece" - the Opera that is said to become the next grand production for the Grand Opera National re-opening.

On Bellamont: To some Bellamont is a true master, capable of pouring tales of the purest horror from his pen as one would pour water from a jug. To others, he is a hack who produces little more than sensational trash - gossip spreads that Bellamont would be working on an adaptation of LeBarthe's play in what would be his next Best Seller - whether or not it is true, remains to be seen; as many believe it to be all but a stunt to bring the masses to see the Opera dubbed: 'The Nosferatu'.

Incredible amounts of Solars are said to be spent, and even word of auditions are on the buzz in artistic circles about actors for the production. Amongst those names, it is reported that small emergent talent by the name of Absalom Nightlyre is the artistic director of the production - to which critics are still skeptical.

While LeBarthe issues no comment when contacted, he did mention this being his life's work and invited all to see a piece so compelling - that is guaranteed to leave none indifferent.

Locals talk of a strange and mysterious man who wanders the streets, cloaked and hooded he avoids contact with all those he encounters, fleeing and disappearing when confronted. He appears to be searching for something, or hiding from someone, or both.

One of the Gendarmes who apparently was listed in the casualties because of the escape of Borcan murderer and baroness Luciana Armont seems now has been scratched out. Ex gendarme Luc Fignon has waken up from his coma. Rumours claim la Gendarmerie offered him a refund and the chance to retire, both of which he accepted. On the rest of his whereabouts not a lot is known, yet.

A murder occoured on the Quarter's streets tonight. The body was attended by Gendarme and social luminary Edmond Montte, and the half-sized playwright Absalom Nightlyre, amongst other, lesser-known individuals. Rumour has it the poor man, a lesser nobleman of no substancial standing, was headless, had all its skin stripped from its body, or was drained of blood completely, having its eyes and tongue cut out, depending on who you believe. Whatever the story, one thing remains the same; the attack was savage, brutal, and brief. The Gendarmerie have yet to make a response.

It is rumored that Edmond Montte is planning to start up a detective agency, and that those who wish to enter the field should speak with him. In additon, those that are wishing to hire a detective are to speak with him. Of course this just rumors anyways.  As the day is drawing close; it seems that most of the gossip about edmond though is about his marriage to Celine Lafleur.

Painted overnight on the crumbling walls that surround Ste. Mere des Larmes are a mural and a message. The mural depicts an angel, wings outstretched, head lowered in piety, holding a wooden cup in his hands, whereas the message reads: "Vous êtes de ces mensonges! L'Église vous trompe! L'Échansons êtes la lumière!"

The curious tall enigmatic figure donning the brown coat of the Inquisition from the Dementlieuse Church is seen examining the heretical work, taking notes.

On the tongues of bourgeois and noble alike is a terrible rumor that pieces of Gendarme, specifically heads, have been showing up in and around the Quartier Savant and any guard posts throughout the city. These rumors are also trying to connect these gruesome displays with a series of Gendarme disappearances during the late hours around the Quartier Publique and Marchand. What could be doing this terrible things, and for what purpose, if they are happening at all...

The gentry of Port-a-Lucine last night witnessed quite a sight: Lord Henri de Montagne at what might possibly be his worst. With a balled up copy of Les Esprits Curieux Tract clutched tightly in his right fist, he rather publicly demanded that the authors of the well-known scandal sheet be charged with slander. He was also seen arguing with renowned playwright Absalom Nightlyre, but that's hardly news...

The Flint and Flagon Festival, and it's massacre was one and a half months ago. Since then, it's host "Elfric Gotz" has not been seen. It is only recently he's been spotted outside the Governor Hotel. Quietly sitting at Chez Leon, drinking coffee. His appearance slightly unkempt, and seems to have lost a decent amount of weight.

Rumors go around that the head of the Benoit family has disowned Josephine Benoit, his youngest daughter. Though what she would have done to be disowned is up to gossip to chat about.

Talk goes throughout the city of the musical concert held by Linnea Paganni and Matthieu Montte,esquire. A night of wonderful music is the local gossip, most of it being praised. this was a night where all the councilors came to watch as well as the lord governor. It is even whispered that some of the music greatly moved the councilors of the council of brilliance. The fact that 200,000 solars was raised for charity also what is talked about. the fact that 200,000 solars were raised to help children, some even being given for their education.

most gossip seems to talk about the scene at the end, when an assassin tried to kill Councilor D'Honair, chief advisor to the lord-governor. The assassin was later revealed by the gendarme as Maximilian Merda, which is something that seems to be on the talk for the time being. Some praise Edmond Montte as a hero who successfully captured the wanted terrorist and placed him behind bars. Others scoff at him for the fact that a bullet was shot at the Councilor. Most talk says that Domnic d'Honair will be fine after a few days of rest.

all in all that event is something that will certainly be on the lips of people for some time, but as with everything in the port likely something new will come and that shall be the talk of the town.

Rumor spreads of an attack by some manner of clawed beast, likely a caliban of some sort, claiming the lives of at least three gentryfolk and one gendarme, not far from the Café Chez Leon. Wearing brown robes and a hood, she had a dagger in hand and used it to make incisions upon the throats of a few of her victims. A pair of outlander chased the creature off, before it escaped somehow, report bystanders... how long it might be until the foul thing returns, none are certain.

An odd fracas took place near the Lodge involving glowing men and patches of darkness by all accounts. Facts are hard to pin down as the story passes word of mouth and elaborated by second rumour into fanciful tales. All tellings end with the usual Dementlieuse dissmissal of: 'C'est tres étrange, non?'
