Within the tavern bar of the Trust Ox, a familiar elven storyteller weaves a tale not as full of optimism as his usual prose.  He talks of the corpses of the dead stalking in the night.  The story culminates with a shadow clad witch of darkness summoning the tools of war to act no longer inanimate, but with a dire will of their fiendish master.  As shadow and spirit skulk on the edge of the horizon, one of the villages own Black Army is struck down in one fell swipe.  Her body hauled into the darkness before help could arrive. 
The elf tale spinner shows sign of a nasty injury of his own perhaps from trying to intervene? One can't help but wonder if this was was non-fiction witnessed first hand, as the bard finishes his story and sulk in the corner, drinking one too many ales.

The recent attacks on the town appear to die down as an increased watch is set upon all the entrances into Berez. Travellers report that patrols frequently walk through the town and back to their barracks. Whatever the reason for the sudden increase in supernatural occurances, it appears the Black Army is taking no chances with the security of the town..

Tempers flare in the fortified town of Berez as the age old conflict between Gundarakites and Barovians rears it's ugly head once more. Soldiers of the Black Army rush towards the growing angry mobs from both nations, armed to the teeth with makeshift weapons and farming tools. As the acting commander moved in to calm the unruly mob, the first blow was struck. It is unclear which side swung first, but what had begun as angry protests soon turned bloody..


A deathly silence ensues the aftermath of the riot, with Barovian and Gundarakite laying dead at the foot of the Trusty Ox. The Soldiers of the Black Army move the dead to the graveyard, mixed emotions over their weary faces..
