-As the sun rose above Vallaki, a woman was seen running about frantically in search of her husband, a dock worker.  She exclaimed that he had not returned home the previous night from a late shift unloading cargo.  The man was known to be fond of getting drunk and starting fights.  It is rumored that he likely started a fight he could not win, and may rest at the bottom of the Lake.  A few other Dock workers who were out that night claim they saw the missing man following a hooded figure into the alleyway, but kept their noses out of it.-

Fishermen finally returning to Vallaki with their cargo spread rumor of how seemingly over night a large camp of Falkovnians was erected upon the North Western Shores of Lake Zarovich. Apart from the size of fish caught in the past few days, this continues to be the talk of the sailors.

Some have regarded the recent Falkovnian Recruitment Poster as a start to understanding why the camp has sprung up and speak about the prospect of dangerous work to be had, work that only a crazed Falkovnian might do.

Others seem less interested in working among the foreign affair and whisper their concern that they just hope they don't plan anything nefarious in the region that could harm their families.

The rumors soon spread to each district of Vallaki, each interpreting the Falkovnian presence a different way.

In due time, another host of stories arrive at the docks of Vallaki, shared in the Anglers' Dive and  beyond. It would appear the the Falkovnians picked up their campsite and moved it up into the Barataks!

In the twilight and desolate hours of the night, a lone orange hue can be seen emanating from the foothill forest of the mountain range.

Some have begun to take up a wager on how long they intend to stay up in this uncivilized area of Barovia. Soon news spreads throughout the rest of Vallaki and bordering regions, reaching the ears of those with a seated interest the foreign presence.

A man in a bloodied and torn tunic of black and white might have been seen dragging himself into the Angler's Dive in the Docks District of Vallaki in the middle of the night. Some could have noticed that  he had the stench of the sewers about him, but he apparently was not thrown out for the deathly looks he gave the other customers, the bountiful collection of scars on his face, and the large amount of Fang he left on the bar counter. Several bottles of cheap wine were purchased, and left standing empty like an abandoned army on a table in the corner before the battered figure dragged himself out in the early hours of the morning. He seemed to head out of the northern gates of the city, looking to be on death's doorstep.

[The Angler's Dive appears to have had two new patrons - a pair of guards, who seem to watch over the comings and goings of other patrons, and its proprietors Ella and "Pops", silently.]

Great excitement and preparations are already underway for tomorrow - the day of celebration of a great Barovian foe and celebration of the life of a hero - Simeun Radkov...

One recent evening, a phantom-like, winged creature might have been seen emerging like a shadow from Lake Zarovich, flying toward the less-frequented shore not too far from the docks. More likely seen to be seen was the same drakelike form returning to the skies low above the water in the morning, flying westward, trailing black feathers and casting long shadows toward its path in the dawn light.

A thoroughly-spooked warden stumbles into the inn and takes many long drinks before confiding to the innkeeper that he found blood everywhere by the shoreline, along with the indentation that suggested a medium-size boat was ashore. He found no bodies or arms, but the amount of blood suggested that several men at least had been killed.

Not soon after the town gates opened a band of wererats attacked the Garda.
A hin present during the attack helped fend them off with his short blades.
The battle ended swiftly, with no casualties and the greencloaked halfling, who introduced himself as
Meroigrin Billows leaving the town.

The daily hustle and bustle of the docks is disrupted this day, as the house of Prospu Mircea's family is brought into the rising sunlight. The abode is quickly boarded up for later investigation. A murder, the whispers say, of most foul intent.

Two battered, strange, and decidedly foreign skiffs were abandoned on the shores of Lake Zarovich proceeding a misty night. Several reports of fishmen being slain soon follows the appearance of these strange row boats, including men,
 women, and children along the docks. The herbalist Llewellyn seems to also have been struck, however, with charred walls and signs of a recent battle

An idyllic, sleepy winter morning was harshly interrupted by a violent altercation between seven hooded individuals at the Vallaki docks. One man was heavily wounded as he leapt off the pier while crossbow bolts fired at him. Witnesses speak of a smuggler's ship being ambushed, which swiftly made its escape into the waters of Lake Zarovich..
