*whispers begin to spread about Vallaki being strongarmed by the Von Zeklos to do their dirty work for them. Rumors mirroring those on the streets begin to spark amongst the army of servants and non military personelle that keep the Citadel running, making particular note of the vrolock Tatyanna Markova who was a favored freind and ally of the Von Zeklos family, and the other constant mysteries surrounding the keep*

Rumors of the Knighting of Known Witch Vincent Vasil Stravokov spread amongst Vallaki's nobilty, several have immediately cut ties with the Von Zeklos after the incident reaching words in most Blue Blood Circles. Adding to the recent undead Claims derision by the local peasantry, that believe the Zeklos Lands have been corrupted by the Dilisnya poisoner influence within. Known Witch Stravokov figures on everyone's lips. Many wonder how much longer the Von Zeklos will continue to surprise by having known vrajas and Imortij acting as prominent figures in their land, and how much longer will it take for the Count himself to notice...

The event is seen as an affront to the Burgomaster of Vallaki himself, present at the flogging given to the new Zeklos Knight, this comes after some tensions, some say, between the Vallaki Dilisnya  and the Zeklos Dilisnya who seem to been having a fall out. Nobles view this as a public shame to Nicolai Ionelus, whose son is directly involved in those events.

Rumors runs in whisper of the Lance Corporal Iorgovan, so friendly to the Zeklos dogs who would slay our own in a moment. Why act so suspicious and defensive when asked about his whereabouts concerning the Zomulich woman? Some have not forgotten that Iorgovan used to be a personal bodyguard assigned to the witch Stravokov. The word traitor lingers in the air between the nervous guards who fears a war between the two land.

Corporal come Private Dragomir Katzinkaly storms through the citadel, completing his assigned chores and then writing a SECOND inflammatory comment up on the report boards. The kid veteran has a reputation for having seen and done it all and has been spoken highly of for his personal courage and exploits in the past, but seems to be on some sort of personal crusade or fury now. Whispers mention the tragic death of his wife on his wedding night, taken just an hour shy of dawn by a Vrolock, and wonder if there's a relation between that and the all but open secret of the Von Zeklos' involvement with the foul imortij.

Lance Corporal Iorgovan can be seen in his office working on the draft of the new Garda Manual. The venerable soldier appears un phased by the rumors and gossip surrounding him and a certain controversial barovian lady. At times, the Old War Dog can be seen smirking as the echos of cursing and rage reach his ears from the training hall and barracks.

Rumors begin to come out of the Citadel that there have been reports of a contagious plague in Von Zeklos keep that causes fever and delusions due to spending so much time with imortij. The Garda are apparently taking it seriously enough to investigate the claims and see if Von Zeklos keep needs to be quarentined. Whispers say the Garda are looking for an independent doctor to verify the claims.

Wild rumors expload out of the citadel as the situation brewing between enlisted man and longtime Garda Dragomir Katzinkaly finally come to a head. Excited chatter says Katzinkaly accused officer Gregori Iorgiovan of treason and conspiring with Vincent von Stravokov, presenting a letter from Stravokov as proof. Corporal Grigore Cazacul had Katzinkaly busted to recruit for his slander- Katzinkaly refused, and stripped naked right there revoking his posistion as a garda, quitting right there. Furious, Cazacul had him tied to a pillar for insubordination and sentenced him to 50 lashes, but every enlisted man called on to do it was unable to bring themselves to do it and by the time Cazacul himself decided to handle it, there were 3 awaiting lashes. Accusations were shouted, angry words exchanged, and when his mettle was questioned Katzinkaly is said to have screamed "I AM BAROVIA!" and snapped his bonds, and just walked out of the Citadel naked, swiftly leaving the city.

Recruit Eugen Dumitrascu never returned to the citadel last night and likewise failed to report for duty the following morning.  Some wonder if something had happened to the young recruit, or if he had simply gone the way of a few others and resigned.

Private Ovidiu was seen keeping lookout on the wall of the citadel all night long, when morning came she was asleep by the wall before a sentry woke her up. She then left in search of the recruit, hunting him down in every inn of the city.

Recruit Dumitrascu is seen dragged back to the citadel by the private Ovidiu, naked, bleeding and missing some bits. Some say the calibans did him in, others, rebels.

Horns blows at the citadel in a confused mess. A witch is rumored to have been causing ruckus, then as night settled over the land, there was silence.

Massive explosions rocked the Citadel last night. Vallaki Garda reports indicates another attack was staged by the Sons of Nharov (Gundarakite Rebels). At the moment no Garda casualties reported, but excessive damage was done to the battlements and main gate.

Rumour speculates that Garda Popa hasn't returned to the citadel in many days, leading to claims she has been slain or kidnapped by Barovia's shadier denizens.

One of the Vallaki Guard's newer faces, a powerfully built man by the name of Bratu, is noticeably downtrodden, and lacking the enthusiasm he enlisted with. Rumors amongst the garda state that he has been shaken mentally by some of what he has witnessed in the performance of his duties.

Some surviving and wounded guards of the von Zeklos family are seen lingering around the Citadel, swallowing their pride and hoping for employment with the village of Vallaki, now that what is left of their Keep is in shambles.

Word spreads about the possible halted assassination on behalf of Nicolai Ionelus at the government district. The culprit said to be a witch shadow blinker, vanishing from sight on a whim; guards on duty are praised for having done their duty in pushing the assailant off. Security has increased around the perimeter of the residence, guards are on high alert

Lance Corporal Iorgovan "The Old War Dog" was seen late last night searching through the Vallaki Archives, cursing and grumbling the whole time. Finally in the early morning hours after spending the majority of the night searching and compiling reports, he exited with a satchel of documents and official records. He departed with urgency to the Blue Water Inn.

Word of heated tensions coming from the halls of the citadel where many guards witnessed strong words being exchanged between Lance Corporal Karpovski and Lance Corporal Iorgovan. There seemed to be a disagreement between them, some say both men accusing themselves of corruption.

A heated discussion bewteen Corporal Cacazcul, Lance Corporal Markos Karpovski and Lance Corporal Gergori Iorgovan occurs in the corner office. Curses and accusations can be heard all the way down to the practice room and through the hallways.

At the end of the day, "The Old War Dog" Iorgovan is seen packing his bags and walking east out of the City. A smirk on his narled face and a single word issued from his lips, Retirement....

Varmathus Vonovich hears word of the argument and the departure of his old time associate Gregori Iorgovan. after a year of service and frustration never making the rank of private, he throws in his recruit badge and following Iorgovan's footsteps out the "long stretch"...

An officer of all people picks up the badge, not surprised seeing Vonovich's badge tossed on the ground, never forgetting about the one that cowardly gave his keys to the enemy without a fight, never forgetting the dangers he's brought upon Vallaki's finest families, numbers of years ago...

*Eliza hears of the new desertions and a frown mars her perfect brow*

Don't they understand that their service shouldn't be about themselves?

*she sighs and slips away to don the mantle of The Lady to risk her life against murderers, shadow fey and witches hoping never to be recognised, casting aside all thoughts of being rewarded or thanked*

This has always been about protecting our people.
At least there's space for someone worthy to move up the ranks now...

An exhausted and frustrated Lance Corporal Iorgovan reads and corrects numerous reports from the patrol division of the Vallaki Guard. The exhaustion of running his brothers farm and working as an officer has been effecting his health and temperament. Financial obligations have extended his long anticipated retirement for yet another season.
