Onlookers would talk about the work permits and the fiasco that happened. Gundarakites Georgetta Pavenic and Mother Zsofika Balassi were brutally beaten and dumped in the mud during the duration of the day and when the night fell were stripped, groped and forced into the Citadel.

An incident that did not go unnoticed by guards spreads around the Citadel: The Patriarch Dragos Dumitrascu, father to the Missing Ex-Captain of the Guard, Eugen Dumitrascu, was seen with his youngest son, blaming guards for their inaction in his son's disappearance. The old man tossed accusations of corruption and how convenient it was not to find him, for he, unlike others in his place, was righteous. It is said, archivist Livia Conta and a Morninlordian were able to calm him down, before he left under the threatening skies of dusk...

The decapitated head of the ex guard Marius Vulpes is seen impaled by a dagger on the citadel gates, a piece of parchment over it reading: "All you Barovian dogs, the day is coming where you will pay for all you did to our once great country! Gundarak will rise again and you will all fall to ruin with your DEVIL STRAHD! REBELS will RISE. REBELS are RISING! FOR GUNDARAK!"

In the mid morning a loud and reverberating explosion can be heard at the gates of the citadel. Once the flames died out the grisly scene revealed itself. The guardsman known as Isidor Czegin was found mutilated, charred, melted and half the man's head blown completely off. The only clue as to the culprits of the crime is the crude carving of the word 'PIG' into the man's chest. This was clearly another attack by the Gundarakite rebels.

Two Morninglordians have been seen walking to the gates of the Citadel, moments before being halted by a garda. They then entered the citadel to only, after several hours, leave.

Rumors spread that wererats stormed the Citadel's walls last night in a display of blood and terror.  Several Garda were turned, and others killed.  A woman in a red cloak was said to be seen walking away from the scene, sprayed with blood.

Minor attacks hit other locations throughout the city.  Wererat activity is rising.

The Wererat Nicoleta Montescu has been reported slain and held in Garda custody.  It is unknown how the wererat citizens of Vallaki's underground will take her death.

It is Said that the Ezrite who captured the rat nurni witch recently has declined to accept the coins offered for the bounty. The reasons why she seems to not be interested in this is many. from some poisoner scheme to genuinly doing this out of selfless reason and everything in between is gossiped about.

The sorrow filled cries of a man can be heard outside the citadel in echoed streams carried on the wind. a single candle flame is seen in the dead of night, slowly passing narrowed arrow slits, as its bearer holds a vigil for a lost soul close to his heart. the moment of silence is interrupted by the hateful shouts of anger and frustration. cursing those responsible in the most wicked and unspoken Barovian hexes known...

Word of low morale are spoken by guards around the citadel; the sullen faces of men speak of the sadness brought by the death of rising officer Shergei Cezarescu to the outlander plague. This comes in a climate of inner tensions, as other bitter tongues speak of  Lance Corporal Petkovich and Private Cosmin Sollomovicic and a physical confrontation where Petkovich soundly lost; and now has a black eye.  It was serious and not a simple sparring match.

It is said that later, and after a patrol, Lance Corporal Petkovich made up some excuse to punish Cosmin. He was still angry about the fight. He even get Corporal Orlov to met out the punishment. Petkovich had a large smile on his face while he had the Corporal do his dirty work. Tensions are about to explode after the death of Shergei. Guards lashing out at each other and random outlanders, and Cosmin has a deathwish by volunteering for wall duty every night.

a female figure is seen being escorted into the citadel in the dead of night for questioning. later strange sounds begin to emulate from the Lieutenants office. a vigorous and consistent thumping noise echos into the empty halls, muffling what sounds to be the muted moans of ecstasy...

Toret Morello was seen entering the Citadel along side Lance Corporal Petkovich; other garda would remark that she was taken into the citadel's sick bay. After a while, petar is seen escorting the toret out of the citadel seeming somewhat relieved and glad about something that happened...

Sergeant Petkovich is seen walking the halls in his new uniform with a stern expression on his face. some men may rumor at his continued advancement, but non question his dedication and determination among the Strong arm of the Garda. those who observe would note that the vigilant Officer wears his rank and authority lightly, only enforcing authority when it is required or needed. this has granted him a measurable respect among his peers, for being a honorable and fair Officer of the Vallaki Garda...

Horns blasting from the citadel cut the silence of old naopte. A symphony of shrieks replied to each garda horn. As the noapte raged on the shrieks and horns grew few and far apart. They were replaced by screams and shouting of orders. When the first rays of light hit the citadel all was quiet. The bloodied garda slowly filtered out of the gate to pile up their dead. Several sons lost their fathers and wives lost their husbands. But none cut so painfully as Corporal Lev Dragunov who has been reported missing and many garda believe the worst.

the following day Sergeant Petkovich is seen ordering a regiment of men to look into locating the now missing Corporal Lev Dragunov. the Sergeant and his men are seen questioning the local Citizens of Vallaki to his whereabouts. the day however merits no leads in the Garda's investigation.

the Sergeant is seen returning to the citadel from the outskirts with a shackled woman baring an aggravated expression...

Whispers goes that an Officer of the Garda was attacked in the market district right before nightfall . It is told that he in the encounter lost his finger to a hungry caliban.

Word has it that the Grimaldi family wishes to see the highwayman that goes by the name of "Goggles" imprisoned or out of the way.
Apparently he has hindered the Grimaldi family's involvement in the trade business once too often or somehow evoked a personal interest.

Whoever puts a halt to the robbing spree will likely be in the household's debt, the extend of their favour and gratitude remains unmentioned.
This leaves the speculation of it being an open request, it is safe to assume there will at least be a small compensation in it for whoever brings the news.

Soon after the explosion in the outskirts, the bell of the Citadel was heard ringing, along with a guards horn frantically going off. The noise was met with the new recruit Lupescu on the wall where he was greeted with another firebomb that was lobbed over the wall with the words "FOR GUNDARAK" bellowing after it.

Stories begin to circulate about a pair of Garda seen on horseback riding full tilt out of the city at sunrise.  Rumors from the stables suggest the pair were heading to the plague ridden Village of Barovia, and that the pair were none other than the much loved Sergeant Petkovich, and the Private Moldovan (Whether it was Marius or Dorin depends on who you ask).  Near sunset the next day, the Private was seen running full sprint through the rain and mud towards the Citadel, a mask of black cloth covering his face. . .The Sergeant was not with him, and has not been seen in Vallaki since.

[Smoke is seen rising in the middle of the night from the Citadel.  In the early morning hours that followed a trio of corpses were seen being drug from the front of the citadel, and the guarda later held funeral services for five of their own.  Whether or not this was an outside attack or infighting is unknown.  What is known, however, is that four guarda were discharged that same morning on counts of negligence.  Those around the citadel seemed tight lipped on the incident, for now.]
