Throughout the day activity is seen in and out of the Chapel, several new arrivals are seen as a Knight returns from a long trip, in the company of an Inquisitor, but not the one seen there upon many an occasion recently, she is seen walking about the keep walls and also looking at the Boyar Crypts close by. The earthquake that was experienced the night before has not effected the chapel or the keep or surrounds.

Word spreads of a horrific assault upon the followers of Ezra. Late in the night, out of the woods, they came. Worgs, a wailing spectre, a great elemental of Flame. They pursued fleeing travelers to the keeps walls, where it is said several Templars were slain in the attack. The timely arrival of reinforcements saw off the foul creatures, and it is said, their vampiric master. Left carved into the stone of one of the inner walls were the words "By the Undying King"...

Word has it that there is constant activity at the Redoubtable Chapel of Our Eternal Guardian. Reports of Ezrites coming and going on a regular basis prevail. Two wardens and a Templar seem to have taken up permanent residence. Farmers have been visited and report two blonde Ezrites passing through with a brunette female offering blessings and words of kindness.

A Young Initiate is often seen spending the night, in vigil, inside The Redoubtable Chapel.
He occasionally descends in the nearby cursed Crypt, only to come back hours later, to tend to his wounds and take care of his equipment.

Groaning undead have taken to wandering outside the old haunted keep at night, but the mindless ones seem to have purpose in their shuffling...organization...as if led by some unseen force. At the entrance to the keep, gore. Written in blood on the brow of one decapitated head..."Sacrifice of Orcus."

My windows cracked, but they can be replaced.

From within the crypt a banshee-like keening could be heard just before dawn. Indeed, scholars of the elder forms of Elvish might recognize most of the female voice's muffled lament:

Two...rushed together...
With crimson....the air above.
That...was the tender squeak
Of youth, when it's a prey to bleating love.

The swords are splintered, like our youth, my ...
And now it's ....and talons
....is child's play to the snarling
Of ...adults in ruptured passion.

The...is hell, and...
The hellcat calls! Come, let us roll without remorse
To embrace a death feud that never ends!

More undead churn out of the crypt, like macabre bees swarming from a hive as a new queen takes wing. Although the Ezrite Templars remain at their posts, none challenges the hooded figure who seems to command the hordes of shuffling, mindless corpses. She passes undeterred back and forth between the crypt and the larger keep, growing perhaps as restless as the ghastly rotted masses she commands, as unwilling as they are to stay confined to their tombs.

Now and then her baleful skeletal gaze looks east toward Vallaki.

Noises of carpentry, hammering and sawing can be heard from the courtyard of Raduta Keep.

Barricades are erected just outside the main gate leading inside the Keep, spikes pointed towards the interior, as to prevent something to get out.

Notices are pinned to the Wall Gate, reminding to the Pilgrims to keep it always closed.

A crate, guarded by some Templar Knights, is placed just outside the Chapel with a paper next to it.
