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.

A few lesson notes from the recent etiquette lesson offered by Dorian de Sauvre and hosted by Dame Nomie Desrosiers are offered outside of the Fleur d'Ambre, carrying a few nuggets of protocol, such as:



One should never demand a greeting of ladies or those of higher social rank; it is one thing to acknowledge their presence with a quick and polite greeting, another to impose upon them by thrusting yourself into their presence.

...

In formal circumstances, it is customary for gentlemen to bow and ladies to curtsey to those of higher social rank or of distinguished age.

...

It is the privilege of ladies or those of higher social rank to initiate physical contact: dont offer your hand to a lady or someone of higher rank, but wait for them to offer their hand to you.

...

Kissing on the cheeks is socially permissible between close friends and family. Never assume permission: if you have to ask, then you should likely abstain. Hugs are generally inappropriate in formal circumstances.

...

It is proper for gentlemen to remove their hats when greeting someone; although hats of religious significance are an exception. Ladies may keep their hats on in almost all situations.

Constance Richelieu, Dowager Comtesse de Placide, is noted entering the Recondite Atelier late in the evening in a swish of silk and perfume. The matron of the art-dealing Richelieus does not stay long, however, departing after a few minutes inside. It takes perhaps an hour for rumors to spread from the Comtesse's lips of the newly minted Maitresse Aguillard's low-bred manners and graceless company. It takes a few hours more before those coming and going from the Atelier are followed by derisive whispers and stares from the gentry. The Comtesse de Placide, for her part, is next seen mingling the Muse's own Maurice Grin-Lajoie, himself freshly titled...

[A raven-haired Lamordian woman wearing fishnets, visibly excited, can be seen going to and from the Corbeau family's pre-eminent restaurant and now casino, moving carious crates filled with various supplies, wine casks, and even the occasional stage prop to inside the establishment's bowels. What could she be up to?]

[Various objects in large wooden crates can occasionally be seen being moved inside what was once the Recondite Atelier, and a sign presently hangs outside the door to the establishment, a promise of things to come:]

-Following a gunshot and odd chanting coming from the Dejour townhouse in the Quartier Savant, Gendarme de Renault and Stella Seifert enter the premises.  There was a whistle sounded, more gunfire throughout the day and, eventually, one Gendarme is brought out, dead.  Soon after, a barricade and a sign go up denoting the townhouse as a crime scene.-

A recent arrival to the city, a Richemuloise woman clad in black takes to searching the Savant at length, keeping to the shadows. She seems to have no mortal prey in mind, but is swiftly on the scene of any rumored supernatural happenings...

The Seance themed magic show at the Wyrmsbreath appears to have been a smash hit, with even initially skeptical attendees coming back throughout the evening after leaving early. It was so realistic, many attendees even seemed to think it was real!

Confessions of Monsieur Ane

Fellow citizens, it's time to come forward with the truth. I, Aidan Rathcore, am Monsieur Ane. A lot of you suspected already, so I'm keeping ahead of the story to stay relevant.

After hiring Vallaki Drain scum to wreck the Rose Day Ball as part of our grudge against Marie-Louise Corbeau, I thought I'd pick more juicy targets and undermine the Grain Deal from inside. What better way to please our new master, Councilor Palascu, then by playing the most important recent negotiation on both sides?

Advancing our careers, naturaly, that's our purpose. Not content with besting our enemies, we realized we could stab our friends in the back and climb over them. We risked getting our good friend Stella Seifert executed for crimes she didn't commit, mocked our patrons Emeric Desrosiers and Dorian de Sauvre, sullied the name of a Baron's daughter, and lied about those who supported us. We poked a bit of fun at ourselves, too, you have to hide the trial after all, and a gossip rag is the best way to stop people like Sieur Roland Steele and the Shepherd, so it's all good, right?

Our achievement is important: we've told the entire country that we're for sale. We'll accept the highest bidder for our service, but beware: we'll betray you for the next high roller who comes along. Nothing, not even loyalty, is sacred in the Republic, only the flames of ambition. Just ask the Marquis of Valey.

If the Grain Deal we negotiated turns bad because of our scheming, sorry, not sorry: we want the titles. We aren't cheap.

Signed,
Aidan Rathcore, a.k.a. Monsieur Ane

Word spreads that the upcoming premiere of La Bote Musique, the latest production of La Troupe de la Fleur dAmbre, has been canceled. It is unknown if a new date will be set or when that date might be.
