A new gossip pamphlet is spread throughout Quartier Publique.

Les Damnés
(The Damned/The Wretched)

À chaque fou plaît sa marotte
(Every fool is pleased with his folly)

Liar of The People
The scandal that is the Vicomte de Roissy (known for destroying the people’s revolution, housing a large mercenary company just outside of our serene city, and marrying an uneducated, provincial, violent Barovian) has once again proven his questionable judgement.  It has come to our attention that he has been allowing a dangerous caliban to walk the streets of our city; we question if this is a wise decision when one considers the recent atrocities committed against our gentle nobles. We also wonder, should a man of such dubious judgement hold the reigns of a large company of homicidal men? Why the Council does not act is certainly a mystery to us.

Gauthier’s Revenge
In a stunning move, Justice Olympe de Valyse in one breath admitted that Myrcella Artois, was responsible for the disgusting murder of Mademoiselle Gauthier. In another, she showed astonishing leniency by allowing the murdering psychopath walk freely to exile. Monsieur Gauthier, in an attempt to bring justice to an injust trial, shot the woman in the chest. The crazed murderer managed to live and was hauled out of the country, while we suspect Monsieur Gauthier languishes in a cell for his righteousness.

Perrine’s Opinion
I must admit, I do hate to write poorly of other people, however I do not speak for myself alone in this matter. In the previous days, we have seen an increasing amount of unsavories upon our fine streets of Publique and Savant. These people, dressed in armor and bearing weaponry, have no place in our city! Who is to say that these individuals might not be the next to murder our nobility? The gendarme does not act, and those of the demimonde seem content to socialize with these barbarians. I implore my fellows to petition the Council and gendarme to have these ruffians fined upon sight.

Romance, Not Rank
A budding romance seems to be beginning between the Mademoiselle Diane of House Passeleau and Lieutenant Jerome De La Salle of the Company of the Fox. The pair was seen flirting upon the terraces of Publique, with De La Salle growing oddly jealous of how “close” Mademoiselle Diane Passeleau seems to be with the Vicomte de Roissy. The two were then witnessed going off together, suspiciously unescorted. Shall we hope that De La Salle didn’t dock his ship into port that evening?

Comme on fait son lit, on se couche
(As you make your bed, so you must lie.)

Noble Whore Plays The Part
Not a day goes by that I don’t hear the name “Mademoiselle Diane Passeleau,” and it is usually for one terrible reason or another. The recent scandal this hussy caused was strutting about in Publique in an incredibly short skirted maid’s outfit. If that is not enough, she spent her time dressed as such in the company of a disgraceful peasant that later went on to violently strike a maid upon our serene streets! Passeleau then gave a terrible excuse for the outfit, saying she intended to wear it to an audition at the Theatre de la Cathedrale. We shake our heads at that, knowing that they would never put on such a scandalous show. We are left wondering how many other men Passeleau now chases after, if her tastes range to the lowly plebeian.

The woman was also seen assaulting a man in Publique just days prior to this incident. We do hope Passeleau’s father steps in, as it is quite clear that she requires a firm hand to begin acting a proper woman.

Perrine’s Opinion
Surely by now, everyone has heard of the vicious murders ranging from Savant to Ouvrier. The corpses in Ouvrier were found mutilated and posed in a disgusting fashion, while the corpse in Savant was found bloodless and with her throat slashed. We have yet to hear a single word on any investigation being performed by the gendarme. One would think they would care over the death of an upstanding citizen in Savant. It is likely, though, that they are more occupied with their choices of clothing than actually upholding the law these days. A handful of men in the gendarme have been seen without uniform now, opting to wear silk and strut about instead. We overheard one gendarme explaining that he refuses to wear his uniform because Lieutenant Marceaux, the Vicomte de Roissy, does not wear his. I raise a brow at this, and wonder why the gendarme allows such insolence. Hopefully they’ll cease their squabbling over fashion and actually begin protecting the citizens of our most serene republic.

The Fox’s Folly
It seems the controversy surrounding the Company of the Fox is neverending. Earlier this week, a gang of brutish caliban forced their way into Publique, becoming rowdy and nearing violence. When an individual inquired why they were there, they stated they wished to join the Fox, due to the Fox’s sargeant, a caliban named Sieglinde, being an inspiration to them. We shudder to think of such wicked creatures being the ones to defend our country. We recommend that the Vicomte de Roissy rethink his recruiting policy.
