The Harlot's Razor, having limped back to safe harbor after last month's storm, finishes her repairs and sets right out to sea. A handful off mercenaries joins her, and whispers along the docks say the Red Vardo Traders have struck some accord with Captain Gamelet Deneuve that will secure a tidy windfall for both the Traders and the Razor's crew. They return the following evening, the crew somber faced and the red-and-black clad traders as inscrutable as ever. More notable is the malnourished and broken assemblage of humanity disgorged by the vessel. These unfortunates are feted and have their wounds looked to at the headquarters of the Red Vardo Traders, and those with families recount a tale of enslavement and abuse at the hands of criminals unknown. Florence Clmenceau herself sees the rescued common folk of the city escorted to the Gendarmerie to recount their tales in the coming days, and a surge of goodwill to House Clemenceau and her crimson-and-black clad retainers swells in the city, at least for the moment.

A letter, written in neat but concise handwriting, is left addressed to a Mr Delmar in the Red Vardo's shop.

Panic sets in among a subset of moneylenders, merchants, and traders in the Quartier Marchand when news breaks that a large shipment of Bellegarde Consortium goods was lost to bandits while traveling south to the city of Mortigny, vanished beneath the trees of the Champs Silencieux. A half dozen Bellegarde men are reputed to have been killed, among them a handful amateur agents and notable one promising company man. His wife is reputed to have had the foresight to find herself in the arms of a son of boardmember Johan Phfalz, whispered to have been seeking solace for her grief for a week before her beloved husband's death. Alarm among investors is short-lived, as promises and guarantees made on the trade result in only a small loss of capital despite the magnitude of the missing shipment.

An elven woman astride a horse and wearing the insignia of the Bitter Flame mercenary company on her mail passes through the city's western gates. The Gendarmes posted there take little notice amid the heavy daylight traffic of wagons, toilers, and merchants, but her passage sparks one or two curious speculative tales among the dock workers of the Widow's Walk.

A small band of people in colourful uniforms that mimic the People's National Army uniforms of the old revolution were rumoured to have gathered in the Broken Spire. Curious denizens noted they seemed to be looking for Dementlieuse nationals with 'The spirit of 770' to fight a just cause abroad.

Lanterne d'Espoir in the Quartier Marchand is swarmed by a half-dozen government officials from the Department of Public Institutions, headed by none other than Councilor Wymmer Drukker himself. The Lamordian docteur wastes no time in inspecting the grounds of the building before affixing a seal-stamped notice to the door personally. He's then trundled off by carriage to continue his work of ensuring the safety and and well-being of the city's downtrodden and destitute.
