Hazlan - Ramulai
« on: July 12, 2015, 11:00:01 PM »
[The soldiers that protect the walled village of Ramulai and its people are said to have had their hands full this morning. Loud noises came from within the store of Kaisem Attaryll, a merchant of some renown. Those who took part described the thieves as ruthless, for they killed several armed Hazlani soldiers seeking to stop them. Fortunately, the soldiers managed to keep Attaryll's shop from being wholly plundered, with only some gold and other miscellaneous objects having been taken from within.]

The early winter snows paint the city an innocent white, hiding the dark secrets of the grey stone, inside the tall walls. The scape attracts officials and nobles, Hazlik and Lady Eleni among them, bringing their bickering out to the transitional weather. Lady Eleni, as always, shocks and impresses, leaving a lingering influence on the satraps and visitors.

Whispers around the small city would have Hazlik choosing yet another apprentice to be filtered through his Academy.

The city faces scandal, Zravgev searched high and low, at the direction of master wizard Ipahik Kelner. The "butchery of his boy," he shouts in explanation, his guards bustling through the city. Murder, gossip tells the story more straight, placing the bloodshed within the village's tavern; the Kyrillian house's prize slave girl and one of the Great Lord Hazlik's own apprentices murdered in cold blood in one of the upstairs rooms.

A masked figure approached the locked gates of Ramulai in the dead of night, hours after the scandal in the Zravgev that broke out earlier in the day. Panicked and appearing worse for wear, it appeared Ipahik Kelner's apprentice had returned following his apparent demise and disappearance. Upon entering the gates the wizard practically sprinted towards the infamous Red Academy, no doubt intending on shedding light on what happened that day.

Beyond the cyclopean gate of the hamlet erected from the bedrock itself within the Wizard's Vale, laborers, artisans, and wagons loaded with supplies buzz with a growing intensity.  Amplified traffic within the labyrinthine streets and the din of construction and commerce filled the stone walls. 

Hoisted upon the air of rumors of an upcoming arcane competition and coupled with a prestigious instructor and Hazlani house's impending nuptials, the typically empty corridors are teeming with anticipation and productivity. Carts filled with raw construction materials, foodstuffs, and ample floral assemblies pour into the Skrigende Hofnar, laborers toiling throughout the day and retiring within Zravgev each evening.

A dark cloud settles over Ramulai, soot and ash cascading down over the labyrinthian streets carved from bedrock.  After the waning hours of daylight  and well into the evening, arsonists and agents of mytteri stuck under the cover of night.  The abode known to be inhabited by the famed Red Wizards swearing fealty to House Za’am was engulfed in an inferno, consuming all but the uncannily impervious stone structure. The frightened shouts warning of the fire by a servant to the house were heard come dawn, speckled between her violent fits of coughing and spewing of the toxic smoke. 

Soldiers and servants alike took to task, followed by a procession of Red Wizards whose incantations snuffed the flames, blanketing the structure in the sizzling crackle of ice. Rumors of a missive left at the scene trickles from ear to ear. Though whomever was designated as the recipient and the one that plucked it up, were the only souls to know the truth of its content.

It seems the 25th birthday celebration of Sefris, scion of House Sepret, famed for their opium production, is fast approaching.

The day will be marked by a charitable gladiatorial bout where the surviving combatant will generously be allowed to go free.

Invitations have been sent to all the noble houses of and near Ramulai, as well as a blanket invitation to all academy staff.

The reason for these invitations may be that the birthday girl remains unmarried, despite her beauty and her families wealth and power.

This may, or may not, be linked to the well known fact that Sefris Sepret has a personality likened to that of a rabid badger, without the softness.

More than the usual amount of movement and visitors in Ramulai as people meet with Instructor Sepret in the Zravgev.

People seeking favours, information, to join the Academy come and go as the tall woman speaks with each and every one.

Rumour also has it that she seeks a bodyguard as her new prominence comes with greater risks.

Instructor Sefris Sepret is to hold an open lecture on Hazlani history and culture, including a question and answer segment at the Ramulai Theatre in a few days time.

Attendance for her outlander students is mandatory, but the lecture is open to anyone with interest in this area.

Word of it may reach as far as the mist camp, and it appears unlikely that attendees will be targeted so long as they abide by the laws and social expectations of Hazlan, especially in terms of not expressing any faith outside of that of the Lawgiver.

A lean woman in a red coat and hood is seen prowling the areas surrounding the city, starting around the walls and probing far into the wilderness beyond. She periodically pauses to crouch down and survey the ground, carefully examining bent blades of grass, scuffs on trees and rocks, studying faint impressions in the mud, and licking samples of soil off of her grimy, calloused fingertips. She sharply questions local serfs in Kartakan-accented Vaasi about anything unusual they might recently have observed, but gives little reason for the inquiries.

A small figured woman has been visiting Ramulai for the past two days. Generally has spent her time at the inn, or the tailor, full herb bags on her belt. Her clothes are middle to high quality, donned with the colours of the Lawgiver, red, black and silver, and she seems to be well-put together, however not noble-ish.

She seems to be a Rashemani.
