A fair elven woman had seemed to have gone to the Gendarmerie in a hurry, carrying some hastily scribbled letter, urging both the Gendarmes and the clerk to deliver the letter to the Capitaine, Edmond Montte. She had claimed it was news of the well-being of the Capitaine's sister, the recently returned Jaqueline, who had attempted to speak to the Capitaine several times without any luck, which the elven woman herself denoted. She had left the letter and quickly took her leave, not wishing to be in the way.

Rumors begin to circulate among some of the remaining Citizenry of Port-a-Lucine of a Falkovnian Gendarme coming to occupy his time collecting old newspaper articles, ranging from L'Observateur to La Bougie. Some are found in the storage of old newspaper stand owners, others found kept by private owners and paid for their exchange. Some believe he is orienting himself with the complex history of the City's recent years, others speculate the unorthodox Gendarme is investigating something. Others yet believe the Gendarmerie Nationale has been restlessly idle for so long yet, that even they are attempting to find ways to pass the time in this extended standoff beyond the City's Walls.

A jarring rumor begins to circulate amongst the gentry of the Quartier Savant. A young Falkovnian, dressed in an expensive dark maroon coat sporting stained silver accents and a champagne cravat took to his knee in the middle of the Café for all to see and proposed marriage to a young Dementlieuse woman, dressed in blue with sun-kissed flesh and hair of fire. Uncertainty spreads in thinly veiled whispers from onlookers as the woman accepted the proposal with glee and excitement, the two embracing each other for some time before wandering off together towards the Publique.

Two Gendarmes and a Mordent merchant are assembled before a bench in the Savant's parc. They each look with furrowed brows at the gendarme uniform, vest and feathered hat, laying with a bag as if someone had forgot the things there. On closer inspection, the Gendarmes discovers with even more confusion that the uniform, still wet from the rain, had a bloodied collar. The red stain however did not go further than the badge pined to it, on which is written "Corporal de la Companie du Renard". They then search the bag, in which is tucked and harp, a couple of fancy clothes or costumes, an amulet of Ezra, unfinished books, poems and even scripts. As one of the Gendarmes pulls on the uniform to stock it as evidence, a Tarokka card slips off the bench onto the grass along with ashes coming out of the suit. On the card they can read on the bottom "The Mists", the illustration being of a fog surrounding a figure. Oddly enough, the figure in the middle seems to have been removed in a way that the card is now holed where the figure is supposed to be. And most surprising of all, one of the edge of the card is also tainted with dark red.

All it took was a single night. The morning finds the Savant district completely covered and dressed in propaganda posters and gossip, the subjects of such a speedy distribution clear: The Gendarmerie and the woman at their command, Lieautenant Treillard.

Within the Quartier Savant, the propaganda endures for only a few moments. As quickly as the posters appear, they vanish.

At the gendarmerie, a dwarf is seen grumbling and mumbling about the indignity of having to wait like a "common froo loving longshank fop bartender" after being summoned.
Best Regards!

Gossip begins to spread like wildfire after a public altercation between a Falkovnian wearing the uniform of the Gendarmerie Nationale de Dementlieu and a foreigner, a Gundarakite some say, from the way he spoke. Beside a number of Nobles and peers of the realm, the foreigner lashed out and struck the Sergeant, and then did so again before the Sergeant ordered his patrol to stay where they were, and proceeded to knock the foreigner on his back himself and secure him in shackles. Some say he was attempting to commit suicide by Gendarme, others say the two had a personal vendetta to settle and the man was goaded into violence. However, all accounts seem to confirm that the struggle ended with relatively little bloodshed, and the foreigner was arrested and then taken to the Gendarmerie de Port-au-Lucine, within minutes of being shackled.

Gilles Larouche's jewelry is spoken of in gossip as a brazen robbery occurred. Many priceless items were taken by a group of five individuals who were later being sought out by the Gendarmes.

In recent weeks, chatter and rumormongering began to take place amongst the well-to-do of the Quartier Savant. The Hawk Caporal, formerly Sergeant, Joachim von Schrötter, is seen frequently in presence of a sizable patrol at most hours, whilst word begins to spread of the extended, and officially unexplained absence of a former prominent face in the Quartier Savant's day-to-day affairs, the Daughter of the Baron of Chalaines, Sergeant Laurette Elise Trelliard, formerly Lieutenant. Some word is overheard that she was taken from her office, others suggest she resigned after losing rank, though no official statement has been given by the prestigious organization since her disappearance. When the Hawk Caporal is not seen on patrol, or attending long meetings in the Gendarmerie, his hours are often found spent in the Théâtre de la Cathédrale in the company of the Maitresse Verinne van Haute and her Troupe.

The Young noble woman, Yvette Sallembier has been seen in the city once again. Recently she has been seen asking to speak to a Gendarme. Rumors circulate that she might be looking to enlist...

Rumors emanate from the Gendarmerie of a blonde and statuesque beauty, quite discordant with the usual city scum, comporting herself within her cell in the most gentle of manners. Each night by candle the faintly tragic figure dutifully studies a Book of Ezra and places the same volume beneath her pillow...before passing into gentle slumber, her sleeping face a model of youthful innocence.

Early one dreary morning, the statuesque (but clearly pious) beauty is led from the Gendarmerie toward the Quartier Publique, her strikingly golden eyes blinking with sweet relief at being allowed to see the natural light of day after her long incarceration among the city's roughnecks. She still carries the Book of Ezra against her breast as she meekly trudges behind the smartly uniformed soldier leading her.
