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.

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 Lécuyer 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 Lécuyer 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.
