Barovia - Wachter Province
« on: June 10, 2012, 04:25:35 PM »
Rumor spreads the the border outpost on the edge of the Wachter lands suffered a dire werewolf attack. Many tracks indicate there was a whole pack of large wolves that broke through the gate.
Many of the guards were slain, and torn apart. The innkeeper might mention two hunters who where staying in the inn that evening singing and feasting, witnessed the event and went after the beasts to track them down at the first rays of the dawn.

Rumor about a craftsman called Costa Vadim helping the Iliescu brothers around the smithy in the Zeklos outpost, Wachter Provance. He and a young barovian girl, domna Lupei, have been seen on many occassion delivering and distributing tools and crates among the farms on the Wachter Province and along the Svalich road.

The Zeklos outpost on the border of the Wachter province seems to have a developing traffic of barovians as of late. Dialogues about the flooding near Krezk, some came to work in the mines, Constantin Vadim is seen often talking about trade and harvest with the locals. Hunters passing by, miners, woodworkers. Many stops to spend a few hours there before going on their daily work. Rumor is that Costa Vadim is still looking for willing workers who can help him in his developing trade. Cargo loaders, miners, smithes all are welcome.

Word of inner tensions, dismissals and discipline reigns among the Wachter House Guard. It is rumored that the House will be seeking new blood to replace those whom have been considered unsuited to uphold the high standards and tradition of excellence of the Wachter Family. The word is spread by a trader here, a merchant there, shared within and out of the serfdom that possible career opportunities might soon be opening up in Boyardom.

Other rumors speak that Lord Ivan Wachter has taken another, much younger woman, word speak of a Bastard child...

Soldiers have increased movement and patrols. Activity on the road and leading into the Wachter Compound has increased ten-fold. Wagons filled with supplies and rations move pass the gate day and night. The serfs and peasants can only wonder what is happening. The soldiers remain under orders not to speak outside of there own ranks.

At the peak of the mercantile season, Traders & fishermen from Krezk and Wachter province came marching to the Wachter estate angry of the current turmoil in Vallaki that affects business. Ivan Wachter listened to their plea.

Smoke rises into the morning skies over the eastern regions of the Wachter Province, as several piles of corpses are burned by a robed, hooded man in black.  The corpses range between monster, wolf, and man, all tossed together into mass burns.  The stench of charred hair and flesh permeates the air, as the Fourth Sect continues to mercilessly slaughter those foolish enough to cause strife in the lands across the Luna River.

Carrion birds are seen circling in great numbers near the Luna River.  Any who investigate find the Wachter camp slaughtered with the corpses mutilated.  On close inspection one might find several broken Vallaki Garda weapons or pieces of armor amongst the carnage.

Rumor quickly spreads of a vicious werewolf attack in the night on the Outpost leading to Krezk. All the guards manning the post are said to be dead. Locals talk of Ezrites being in the area, and the beheaded corpse of a giant neuri being left behind by them.

Another border skirmish broke out at the Lunar Bridge. No one knows who started it but the end result is the same. More barovian blood split.

Rumors of job opportunities at the Wachter estate begin to spread.
Ivan Wachter has apparently hired someone to manage the affairs of his house while he consolidates his grip on the former von Zeklos lands.
An official statement may soon follow...

[A quiet has fallen west of the Luna, where once the wolves there would howl, often times answered by powerful, roar-like sounds of unspeakable beasts...
now all that is heard is the occasional sad yowl. Along with this - near the Border Outpost Krezk, were found the charred remains of some 10 men and women,
sprinkled in the area a ring of wolf's bane, and a small wooden placard thereupon written vrcolaci - "werewolves"... who has been doing this, it is not yet clear,
though, there have been rumored sightings in the wee hours of men hoisting the flaming banner of Raduta, far beyond their actual holdings...]

A rugged man took up residence at the outpost. Working day and night as if there was no tomorrow. He is felling the trees like a rabid otter, mauling the rock in the mines, the smithy is loud from the bangs of hammer, the strikes filtering outside filling the night with echoes, wailing of metal.
Aside a couple crates and tools, he seems to be mostly crafting weapons en masse.

During last trial, it was observed that a certain "Ceryn of the Grey Wolf tribe" had admitted to the crime of murdering 20 Wachter guardsmen laid upon the two Ezrites, Zivon and Leonar. He went peacefully below, to the dungeons.

Another dark night, another young woman found dead, throat torn out by neuri.
She bears a striking resemblance to the younger Domna von Radovich, Elena.

Recent conversations say that the guardsman Gavril Valentin has on his hours off been asking about the recent deaths and urging residents of the village to stay indoors after dark, particularly those who fit the pattern of the previous killings.

[Wachter's Estate sits glowering down at the serfdom from atop a hill, at the bottom of that hill there is a platform where The Lord's decrees are given and his Justice served. Recently Many of the Wachter Militia have been repairing the platform's supports, nailing down loose boards and sweeping snow and ice from it in preparation for something]

Following the latesth battle on the bridge, a fresh slaughter took place behind the battle lines as a human male mercenary and a caliban monster together raided and pillaged their way through the Zeklos outpost and Wachter farmlands. killing a dozen Wachter guardsmen.

They were eventually delivered, dead, to Lord Wachter's estate; the name of Zorasteria Venerdyn, an outlander warrior, is whispered as the one who brought them to account...
