A weapons merchant from Immol, Nicu Tesla has been seen in amicable business negotiation with the Burgomasters daughter, Nadia Ionelus. Rumor has it the Vallaki Guard will be receiving a new issue of arms soon.

word spreads that the former vardo anya vadim got punished for dealing with rebels giving them gunpowder and guns, some say she should have gotten the death penalty but that she escaped the penalty because of a lance corporal.

News has spread from the Vallaki Citadel that the infamous criminal and Gundarakite Rebel, Rosza "The Firefly" Szanto was captured last night during an attack on the Vallaki Militia Barracks.
The families of her numerous victims have gathered at the Citadel Gates demanding justice and closure for the fallen of the Broken Bell and Blue Water Tavern bombings!

The news of the death of the criminal Rozsa "The Firefly" Szanto comes with a mixed blessing to the families of her victims. In the end justice was served but the satisfaction of a public execution was denied under curious circumstances.

It soon becomes rumor that the irritable Lance Corporal Tomescu has resigned his commission to the Vallaki Garda, for undisclosed reasons.

The wrathful General, Vladimir Ionelus, would be heir to the Seat of Burgomaster is seen walking around the Citadel with fuming rage, cursing and openly disciplining guards with an unpredictable iron hand. Accounts of guardsmen being beaten to the pulp, left a bloodied mess by the General are hushed, spoken from guard to guard. More than once the General is heard cursing venom about desertion and the fickleness of men's loyalties, morning drills at the Citadel walls are heard by passerbys, men seen wearing nothing but summer clothing braving the hard conditions of winter. Always accompanied by his personal guards, there is a palpable aura of fear amongst the ranks, wherever the General sets his eyes on, officers, privates and recruits alike feel at ill ease...

News spread of the woman known as Anya Vadim being executed for crimes of witch craft against the Garda in front of the citadel spreads like wild fire. Beheaded in front of a massive crowd, some stoning her, others crying for her. She held her head high though until the axe fell, silencing her terrified sobbing.

Shortly after the execution, Corporal Eugen was seen escorting a pale and sobbing half-elf, the husband of the executed Anya Vadim, from the dungeons, where he had apparently been kept, forbidden from watching the execution for fear of disturbance. Harsh words were exchanged between he and the Corporal, and the half-fey left the city shortly thereafter.

Two women dressed as peasants have been seen loitering just outside of the Citadel in the past few days. They seem to be whispering near incessantly about the garda and them having something to do with cockerels and eggs.

Squads of Garda and Militiamen are seen searching the battlements and the walls of the Citadel. A sense of urgency in their actions yet the soldiers remain silent when questioned by civilians as to what they are looking for.

Rumors of a series of grisly murders, throughout Vallaki, are spoken of in fearful whispers by the native Barovians.  Apparently the only common theme to each murder was that each victim appeared to have been ripped into bodily, with chunks of flesh stripped from the carcasses.

word quickly spreads among the garda about one of mandruleanu antics, some wonder if he will really leave others say even he is not that stupid as the general clearly stated leaving the garda is desertion and that means execution.

the story of reasons why are even more out of controle, some say he went to far with nadia Ionulus   others say he is forced to by someone, while some simply say he is a coward and running from duty.

Rumors circulate of the Death of Aleksandur Bachev who gave his life, dying in what he believed was a Just action in attacking the Cruel Tyrant General Vladimir Ionelus. his last moments were rumored to be of his own colleagues thrusting their swords into his flesh as he nearly destroyed the general single handedly.

a Corpse later was seen being dragged into the Vault of the dead, never to be seen again....

Some may have noticed the executions of innocent Gundarakites have stopped.  There has been no official word as to why and whether the situation is permanent or just temporary.

As the news of the discharge of Private Mandruleanu spread, word of a celebration hosted at the Broken Bell, paid by none other than Corporal Markos Karpovski himself, are heard around the Citadel - all garda wanting to attend are invited.

Word of a strange and usual happenings...even for Vallaki...involving Neuri.

Just hours after one or multiple possible impostors are rumoured to have infiltrated the Citadel a new claim, yet to be officially confirmed claims a number of very large rat neuri somehow breached the walls of the Citadel and entered the city hall and archives of the Municipality of Vallaki where they no doubt met their end at the swords of Vallaki's finest.

Questions, muttered perhaps betwen lower ranking Garda and the native population  still remain unanswered...


Any link between this rat neuri attack and the one reported at the Blue Water Inn a few nights prior?

How did the terrors of Old Night manage to breech the walls of the most secure structure in Vallaki? A careless group of garda returning from patrol or something more insidious?

Was any damage done to the Burgomeister's office? The Vallaki archives?

Is this an act of the Gundarakite rebellion?

*The other night the Citadel gate bells was rung twice, after awhile only silence followed. If anyone leaving or arriving from the Citadel, a note could be seen for any Garda coming through.*

A massive stir was caused earlier today when a woman sporting bat-like wings was escorted by a collection of Vardo, Ezrites and Guarda from the Ezrite church to the citadel, her chin held high despite the jeers and insults hurled at her by residents. She was taken into the citadel and the heavy doors were slammed shut and bolted. Anyone who has two brain cells to rub together are certain of the winged womans fate: Torture, Interrogation, Death.

The walls of the Citadel boast two new grizzly trophies on either side of the gate. One is the Caged body of Former Lieutenant Tiranul, the other the rotting head of former Corporal Karpovski.
Three people can keep a secret, if two of them are dead.

as the news hits the village one new guard stationed there is jumping in the air of joy, its said he walked around taking woman by the hands dancing in a circle with them as he walked along doing his route, later in the blood o vine he was more then generous with the rounds bought for the local patrons there.
the villagers do not understand what is going on in the new recruits head untill they heard his story and then gladly joined him with his drinking and generous rounds.

Word spreads quickly regarding the disappearance of lieutenant Eugen Dumitrascu.  It is said he was taken by Gundarakite rebels the day after marrying his long time partner, Erika Camitru.

Word on the street, sprawled by a local boy of all people, carries the news in Vallaki that its "Greatest General" - Vladimir Ionelus, "the Wicked Prince", will return from a thriumphant war Campaign led on the borders of Invidia. All citizens of Valalki are ordered to cease activities when the city's Bell will announce a marching parade will arrive from the West - not to assist the parade or to ignore it, might be seen as treacherous behavior subjected to arrests and questioning.

A note was nailed to the Citadel Gate. In addition a ghastly gift from a missing soldier.
