Rumors of a Borcan Inquisitor of the Church of Ezra making a brief stay in Ste. Mere des Larmes has spread among members of both the clergy and gentry. The reasons of his visit a mystery and left to the speculation of the general public.

The bells toll at Ste. Mere des Larmes, calling the Faithful of Ezra to Fifth Day. Promises of a miracle go unfulfilled as the Window of Ste. Mere des Larmes does not heal Bastion Joan Secousse of the Third Revelation. After feverish murmuring, Bastion Secousse proclaims Warden Leonie Callie as her successor, going against her previous proclamation naming Toret Armand Pineau her heir. She then passes at the age of 96 in front of a congregation of Ezrites and curious onlookers. In the moments after, an earthquake shakes the city of Port-a-Lucine.

Lately Yvette Sallembier can be seen going to the Cathedral roughly once a day; sometimes she is seen going multiple times per day. She prays quietly, though those walking by the stained glass within the Cathedral would be able to hear her pray.

Every day without fail, Yvette Sallembier is in the Cathedral praying by the stained glass, and more often then not it is multiple times per day. Those passing by would hear the woman praying various prayers often rather devotedly. Beyond her constant praying however, Yvette does seem to wish to speak to an anchorite of the Dementlieu See.

Warden Durand recently gave Fifth Day Services following the death of Helene du Donjon who was found just outside the Cathedral doors.  He had this to say and the gist of this serves as general advice being given to Ezrites (especially defenseless NPCs) who come to Ste Mere des Larmes in these troubled times.

Quote
"I fear Port-a-Lucine is no longer safe for what happened to Helene and to others.  But we shall fear no death in body for our souls faith in Ezra is eternal.  The Legion of Night is within the Heart of Man and the Legion is among us.  Let us reflect on this."

"We are blessed to have the Gendarmerie.  To take on a role as a protector of your people is as Ezra would do, it is a holy role.  The Gendarmerie hold themselves to the highest standard in the Core.  I urge all Ezrites to assist and cooperate with the Gendarmerie in these times."

"We are blessed to have each other.  I urge all Ezrites to protect each other by traveling in small groups.  Do not go out alone as Helene did.  Beware the night for the opportunities it provides criminals, even in areas we once thought safe."

"We are blessed to have reason.  I have seen other peoples are held back by superstitions while we can see the way of the world and adapt.  It is our greatest strength.  I encourage all Ezrites to speak to those they trust about their experiences traveling the Core."

The Warden has also been pointing out lately that the concept of the Legion of Night living within the Heart of Man is a concept from The Fourth Book of Ezra and it is curious that the late Bastion Secousse did not seek to correct this herself when she wrote The Third Book of Ezra.

The lone figure of the troubled Artist, Lily Ryan is seen entering the Cathedral. She heads straight to the window of Ezra without a word or a smile, and kneels before the stained glass, locked in silent prayer for many hours, begging Ezra for some unknown mercy.
