A woman is seen carrying picnic equipment through the Marchand heading out the east gate and towards the shore. She begins setting up seeming to await others to follow her.
Over the centuries, mankind has tried many ways of combating the forces of evil. prayer, fasting, good works and so on. Up until Doom, no one seemed to have thought about the doublebarrel shotgun. Eat leaden death demon.

In an odd situation the candidate for the council of Brilliance Phillberte Gatteux is seen with a travel bag and an annoyed expression boarding a riverboat destined for Richemulot

A young Mordentish woman with shock-white hair seems to work in and around Novak's rentals, often dressed in rugged tradesman's apron filled with tools, as she carries bundles of wood over her shoulder with another older looking gentleman up to the attic. The amount of lumber suggests there is a great deal of furnishings and renovations being done to the space. Rumor may have it that the woman does not intend to let the earnest attempt at a space for education to go to waste; it would seem that the "Light in the Attic" hasn't gone out just yet.

A ship known as the Lady Von Zarovich slides into a berth of Port-a-Lucine, and the crew hurriedly sets to work shifting crates from the cargo hold to a wagon, and then on to the Government Food Providers of the Ouvrier. An adolescent boy also leaves the ship, dashing off to enter the presses for only a moment before returning.

Rumor spreads of a kidnapping in the Quartier Marchand. The youngest daughter of the Duc de Chantres, Marion Lcuyer was seen leaving the bazaar with a guard escort laden with fireworks. She did not return to the upper class areas of the city. Later in the day, joint searches were conducted by the Gendarmerie and the Duc de Lcuyer himself, with numerous guards. A raid was even conducted on the mutinied sailor, leaving many sailors upset at the intrusion.

For now, her fate seems unknown.

A slight fellow has become a fixture along the quay. He meanders along the piers, taking notes as cargo vessels make berth. He also spends some time inspecting the fittings for the cranes and winches. A diminutive espionage agent, a ship fancier, or a dock officer? Surely not the latter; he'd be the laughing stock of salt-hardened sailors.

One Ouvrier nobody spreads the word at a few Ouvrier and Marchand drinking establishments that a "Lucien de Bellerose" is looking to donate money to widows and orphans of men lost to the sea and asks for documentation.

The later afternoon of the docksides was interrupted as a scene involving the Gendarmerie Nationale and the newly risen head of the dock's union, Simon Brosse, with a great deal of noise.

There are vague mutterings among the sailors that he was unlawfully detained by the Gendarmerie as they failed to find their original target of Sacha Frelon. For whatever they may need these two individuals all of a sudden is not clear, but in the morning, Simon Brosse returned, working closely with his sailors, and despite lurid promises of a strike from him and the solidarity of sailors around him, there is none. Not yet at least.

It is very possible he is not afraid to rally the sailors as needed in future, but he keeps the docks steady with a grim expression; there is a lurking anger in his eyes clear as day for anyone to see as he goes about his work.

In lesser rumor, it seems there is a concerted effort of late that the docks are being outfitted with a wealth of lanterns by local means. Whether this has any effect on the criminals at large in the nights of course, is uncertain.
If they are knocked down, they are replaced in the mornings, as pointless it may seem against the tide of thugs, bootleggers, and smugglers alike.

[A series of hand-written posters, accompanied by a sketch of a young Souragnien woman can be found on the various noticeboards of Marchand and Ouvrier]

Spoiler: show

Her name is Marisol.

Marisol is dearly missed by her entire family in Port d'Elhour, and was last seen departing on a ship bound for Port--Lucine.

Any substantial information about her whereabouts is welcome and will be rewarded!

In the dead of night, someone painted a wall in the Quartier Marchand. Although hurried, the piece managed to be effective. Above it, dripping in bold letters: "VENENUM".

Quote from: VENENUM
A buxom lady of hoarfrost hair wielding frills, laughter, and a blood smeared bone-saw stands indomitable over a corpse. With one stiletto planted in its back she reveals too much stocking, as her pointed look all but says: "The doctor will see you now."

During the morning two people a man and a woman can be seen follow the tracks of paint, the two follow the road walking towards the quartier ouvrier.

The Bounty Board of Quartier Marchand was vandalized last night with the following image:


Canonized in fast strikes of oil paint is the likeness of Jacques Varteur. The dead diplomat is peaceful in repose and crowned with a brilliant sun disc. The true son of Leon. Red petals burst from a bullet wound in his chest.

A short-lived altercation colored the evening with sounds of struggle at the Broken Spire Inn. It ended when a pair of bluecoats emerged into the night air with a nobleman in shackles and another man in a dark suit who trailed behind. The prisoner's angered cries struck the windows of run-down Ouvrier residences all the way to the Gendarmerie, before going quiet.

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.
