The camp is bustling with activity, with rafts built near the small pond in preparation for a live cannon drill, the black powder is collected in small oiled fabric packets, and cannonballs readied in piles along with the cannons to be dragged out.

Sergeant Lis Claret, the woman practically living in the encampment for the last year or more, is nowhere to be seen tonight after requesting her first leave of absence since her service began.
Some might have seen her leaving the city for Edrigan in the company of her fiancé.

[With the Covenant's forces visible from a distance and camping mere miles from Port-a-Lucine's walls, a series of fortifications have been constructed all around the Jalabert family's sumptuous estate; behind those can be seen barrels with the lids removed, made to be filled with rain-water and crates over-stuffed with supplies and provisions. Moreover, tents have been erected, and bedrolls can be seen in the shed adjacent the estate. Often seen outside the estate, busying herself with all manner of preparations and keeping the Jalabert family's own retainers and personal bodyguards company is a fair-skinned scarlet-haired woman often wearing chainmail. She is joined often enough by those whom she simply labels as 'volunteers', armored men whose mannerisms are foreign yet strangely chivalric in their own way, reminiscent in many ways of antiquated knights.]

Rumours start spreading about some servants within the Jalabert's mansion being beaten, which is awkward considering the fame of the family. With all the chaos swirling around the Jalabert Estate, however, , it is only a few who note in hushed voices that a member of the family seems to have disappeared.

Through the early-winter winds and flurries the piercing sound of a Gendarme's signal whistle is heard from along the shoreline of the Baie de Parnault, where the Vistani often ferry foreigners in and out of the magnificent Capital of the Western Core. Several more signal whistles are heard, before a Falkovnian Gendarme is seen limping back to the City of Lights, a Zweihänder over his shoulder, a second wounded Gendarme, and two unscathed, if muddied Gendarmes in his presence alongside. What happened in the winter wilderness beyond the city's gates is anyone's guess, though the four Gendarmes seemed worse for wear.

A quiet rumour states that Anais Jalabert has come back from Chatefaux, and the previous rumours about her were highly overrated, and mostly slanders.

A patrol of Gendarmes was said to have pursued a man dressed in black and wearing a mask and tricorn hat out of the capital. A smattering of pistol shots could be heard rising from the fields along the shore, before Lieutenant Trelliard of the Gendarmerie was witnessed by those near the city gates escorting a shackled man in black garments into Port-a-Lucine. Both seemed wounded and suffering from gunshot wounds...

The nights following the high profile trial of Agnès Gauthier might have been peaceful for many, in the dead of winter, yet the environs of the Baie de Sable were disturbed by cries of agony which resounded through the trees, carried by the wind of the sea of sorrows. Beneath the light of the full moon, a few reported sightings of an enraged beast; a wounded thing whose suffering could only be consoled by the coming dawn.

On the 26th of Juin, a large and grand tent was erected by a mixture of Gendarmes and carpenters from the City of Lights where the old Company of the Fox Encampment once stood, along the Baie de Sable. Once erected, the parade monolith of cremé and red cloth towered, the banner of House Orsine - A Bear, clutching a two-handed blade, the banner of House Sallembier - Two silver foxes facing one-another on an open field, and the banner of the Gendarmerie Nationale de La Serene République de Dementlieu - A lighthouse surrounded by five stars, were draped over it's sides, and along the interior of the tent's tournament pit as well. As the sun settled on the City of Lights, numerous foreigners and locals alike flocked to the parade tent, for the Grand Tournament of Blades. The tournament carried on for many hours, before word spread to the City of the spectacle of swordplay and sportsmanship, which ended in a massive grand melee between all contestants simultaneously before the night's end. A melee of over twenty contestants.
