An architect can be seen outside of le Theatre de la Cathedrale, with many workers performing various renovations inside and out. Wooden scaffolds, ladders, and noise, along with numerous busybodies can be seen and heard.

From the rumors of hospices in the slums being well stocked with food once more, comes the rumors of how it was gained. Two rather thuggish looking men, former employees of a noble house outside the city. They spoke of how the known Highwayman managed to dispatch them, and a fellow guardsmen who met his end by a well placed musket shot. Also that he stole whatever he could, trinkets, gold, food, and the like. All why the lady of the house was tied to a chair, and they had found the husband sleeping on the couch. Both of them seemed unharmed. One of the more expensive things stolen from the couple was a prized mare.

In the early morning, a large Wagon is seen crossing the district with a sizable crew - the cargo: large in appearance, covered, making a outside Thatre de la Cathdrale.

Adelaide D'Amore, often seen walking the streets of the Port-a-Lucine is seen no more.  No one knows what happens to her, she simply disappeared, never to bee seen again.

Rumour has it that recently arrived newcomer to Port--Lucine's social scene, Lilianne Moreau, has joined forces with Ezrite templar-in-training Marcus Hulford to form a charity they have dubbed Champs D'Or - "Fields of Gold." The goal of the charity is said to be to feed the poor and hungry of Dementlieu by buying up unused farmland and producing grain unreliant on Falkovnia. Critics have commented on the long-term nature of the solution, though mademoiselle Moreau is quick to assure them that they will work toward short-term as well as long-term goals.

Recently a trio of 'Fifth Heretics' were involved in an altercation in the street. These two men and one woman, associated with Lilas Wurtbeich, sought for suspicion of war crimes and illegal medical research, were confronted by a number of non-citizens before being detained by the Gendarmes.
One man was hurt in a sword-scuffle, but the aggressor was taken down by a combination of the Gendarme and another armoured fighter.

Nobles gossip about a man who was killed by a foreign woman in a duel. It's said he insulted the woman's infant child and was killed instantly with the first shot. Later, the woman was seen speaking comfortingly to the man's widow.

Small changes have been made at the museum. A handful of women have been taken on as cleaners and curators. They appear to be quite happy for the opportunity and don't seem to mind the upper class snobs looking down upon their lower class manners. Some suggest they might have come from the poor quarter but none are impolite enough to ask. One of these women, a miss Sophie Marceaux, seems to be of more distinct breeding and is making an effort to improve the social skills of her co-workers with mixed results. All appear to have become members of the sisterhood of the black cats wich appears to welcome them without reserve.

rumors that Edmond's wife, Celine Montte ne Lafleur, died on some sort of exploration trip or that is what it seems to suggest by the local gossip anyways.  While there is a general bit of saddness about the gendarmie, it seems also that he is trying to not let that interfere with his duties and not let this show through, but if this is true then it is only a matter of time before political necessity might dictate that he seeks a new wife...

A striking woman, unusual-looking for Dementlieu with her deep red hair and green eyes, with an unusual accent and no apparent knowledge of the local tongue has been seen in the Quartier Publique.  Although she is looking for work, and does not seem to be wealthy or showy, she at least had enough coin to put herself up in the Lodge for some time.  Friendly and approachable, she's spent a lot of time exploring the city (at least the parts she was told were safe), and has stopped by a few of the businesses to inquire after work, even of a simple nature.

Rumor quickly spreads of the most recent edition of L'Observateur, and of a libel suit that Linette Jalabert plans to levy against the publication. Public opinion is  split - some accept at face value the interview that fingers Lilianne's past as being that of a courtesan, while others remark that Le Observateur is slowly becoming like the L.E.C.T. of the past.

A young golden haired male has been seen coming and going from Voix de l'me with some frequency now, moving to and from the famed poets' haunt with small bundles. It is said by the few who still frequent the establishment that he is Madame Baudelaire's new barista.

Word on the street is that the libel trial against Lillianne Moreau has utterly failed. Rumors of kidnapping a reporter's daughter and that renard Leblanc has slept with little boys. Councilor Domnic D'honoair himself is rumored to have been upset and enranged at the antics of Alistar Dumonde and ruled in the favor of Liianne. A duel to the death followed where Renard was killed by Lilianne herself in the duel to the death...

Rumour has it that Dame Lilianne de Moreau and Mademoiselle Linna Paganni are undergoing some manner of feud. A duel to the death was narrowly avoided by the intervention of Inspecteur Edmond Montte.

Sixteen nobles, both men and women are found dead in the streets of the publique. The cause of death undetermined, yet it is whispered among the living of frostbite in the middle of summer just upon their faces in the mark of a claw. The young kartakan woman Madamoiselle Paganni, was seen scrambling from shadows, then breaking into song before running to the governors hotel in tears, fear etched across her face.

A new Gendarme has been patrolling the Quartier Publique taking to passers by and helping out where he can. Though not from Dementaliu he acts as a proper gentleman and seems to be a welcomed face through out the port-a-lucine.

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.

Rumour has it that Dame Lilianne de Moreau has resigned the role of manager at le Thtre de la Cathdrale, leaving the position unfilled. It remains to be seen if the Jalabert family will be hiring a new manager from within the troupe or searching elsewhere.

The Clockwork Goose auction is expected to continue as normal.

Rumor spreads of the Amazing Astoundo's bloody and grisly murder. Sometime during the night, a dark shroud covered his tent, and according to witnesses.. "one second he was alive, the next he.. wasn't". Written in blood along the adjacent wall are the words "Bloody Jack", the only calling card left behind. Gendarmerie have cordoned off the area and are investigating the scene of the crime.

Talk spreads rapidly with regards to the macabre variety show that took place in the Thtre de la Cathdrale, including a few of the more unusual displays. Matthieu Montte's beautiful yet haunting melodies as performed on his violin astonished the crowd and brought him remarkable ovation, and some had to keep from retching during a certain 'dinner scene'. But most horrifying of all was the prediction of a man's death made by a voodan seer from Souragne, a prediction that actually came true when the man proceeded to expire at the very end of the show!

[It eventually becomes gossip that a young woman of small stature and dour disposition occasions the bank semi regularly, only to ask to see her stored belongings in the banks vault long enough to verify they still exist in good condition. It has been noted that she leaves with a less dour expression than she arrives, almost with a hint of sadness or melancholy evident]

Rumour has it that a thin young woman of Barovian disposition is spending an unusual amount of time in the Grand Library, working her way through every book on plagues, illnesses, strange mutations, astronomy, strange occurances and curses she can lay her hands on.

The young artist from Richmerlot; Danielle Lambert, can be seen rushing around the city over the next few days trying to finish the organisation for her upcoming Art show. As per usual she can be frequently observed walking into lamp-posts, other people, doors and the corners of buildings as well as tripping over steps, uneven pavements, and small children. Occasionally she is observed to stand still, staring blankly into the middle distance before rushing off in another direction. How the clumsy house Montte maid and artist will accomplish this event without doing herself a fatal injury is anyones guess.

People have been commenting on the two strange apparitions that were seen walking around Quartier Publique in the last days. An old black and fat woman followed by what seems a female covered from tip to toe with her smelly garments, who is constantly attracting flies.

"Oh, mon dieu! Look at that! Isn't the plague bearer and her comparse? It surprises me the Gendarmerie are not doing something about it!"

"En effet, ma chérie... en effet! I thought we, the good people, would not be forced to watch this kind of thing! Why the peasants of Quartier Ouvrier don't stick to their own kind?!"
