Activity at the Bellegarde Consortium offices has picked up in days of late. Troupes of foreign men arrive in groups, and depart the offices clad in fresh uniforms of the Bellegarde colors.

Whispers among the locals and The Miner's Merriment would lead to believe that these new arrivals are no ordinary hires, but Dementlieuse strike breakers, former members of Company of The Fox, and hand-picked thugs from abroad.

The night erupts into combat around the mining city. Small groups are seen pushing into the mountains, only returning as dawn breaks. The Bellegarde slowly retreat into their offices, wounded and exhausted.

Several flyers make their way to highly trafficked areas in the dead of night, for those who wake to find. (placed in game)

A Caliban, reeking of the sewer, is seen hanging up posters around the Tent City with a rallying call for their kind.

The smell of sewage lingers long after a hulking and pompous Caliban is once again seen strutting around the Tent City, posters in hand.

The Ghakis echoed with the screams of horror in the early fragments of dawn.  Fredek Simaís, the Morninglord priest, lamentations startled awake any still slumbering inhabitants of Krofburg.  As the villagers rose, they witnessed the town guard carrying the priest from the House of Eternal Dawn and boarding up the doors to the small temple. Blood coated the priestís vestments which were singed and carried with it a putrid, acrid scent. Though the guards tried to console and calm the priest as they escorted him away, his keening cries cut through even the bitter cold mountain wind. 

Screams of murder, defilement, and blasphemy.

The town is left to only speculate what horrors the priest witnessed within the sanctum devoted to the Dawnbringer, though many are too fearful to wish to know.

A Caliban troupe composed of a variety of shapes and sizes arrive at the tent city reeking of moldy sewer water. The sudden shout from a heavily armored woman causes each to instinctively draw weapons only to realize it's for a routine contraband check. With a grunt of disapproval half the forces draw back into the mountains leaving those who remain to dump a hoard of filth before the already impatient woman. A shrug and nod from the guard signals their approval for entry, each disappears into shop doorways.

As soon as they entered they're seen leaving higher into the freezing mountains. Hours later the shrill wind is accompanied by the sound of shattering bone, wolf howls and guttural shouts.

The order of the search line that has become something of a custom to combat the smuggling activity in the village was disrupted today with the sight of an armed garda chasing an outlander through the village with crossbow in hand.  Her black-clad friend often seen with her shares some joviality with the line as they nonetheless grumble of the delay.  A perfomer in the line soothes things with some gentle guitar.  An .. interesting day, if nothing else.

Rumors spread when Oksana Kretski, a Krofberg native, is overheard speaking with the Krofberg Militia. The bloody massacre found on the road near Krofberg led to a dozen courageous travelers following a narrow ravine to an icy plateau. There they battled with two waves of ten or twelve white wolves who breathed frost. Worse yet - two huge wolf-like creatures taunted them, and warned of a greater beast on its way. The walking wolf-beasts were not defeated but temporarily driven off, heading uphill towards the ruins of a tower. A strong force will be needed to defeat this threat. In the meantime, travelers should be cautious, not only of screaming hawks and the crag cats, but of the possibility of frost wolves hunting close to Krofberg, if indeed there are more of these wolves that were not slain in the battle.

Danut Solinescu is seen tending to the body of Miners that were slaughtered days earlier by forces unknown. Through back breaking labor he has put them to their final rest. A prayer was spoken over the graves in hopes that the Morninglord's light will guide their souls to the peaceful beyond.

Danut Solinescu is seen returning to Krofburg. The unusually joyful youth now secludes himself and prays. Is it answers he seeks or something more?

After dawn, Danut is seen cleaning the defacement of the statue in front of The House of Eternal Dawn. Someone, or something, had affixed a freshly severed hand to the statue. Inside the hand's palm lie a broken, defaced Morninglord amulet...
