In the early hours of the morning the annoyed expression of one Mirabel Taltos is seen hammering on doors in the slums, practically flinging bags of foodstuffs and warm clothing bought from local markets at anyone who will answer. On the few occasions someone can manage to ask a question before she’s stomped off, she only has one explanation.

In the late hours of the Barovian night, a scuffle occurred that resulted in a horn being blown outside the Guardhouse, but as quickly as the horn blew the fight ended, with a pool of blood sitting outside the Guardhouse door that trailed inside the guardhouse.

The ringing clash of steel and hoarse shouting echoed out from nearby the Kinship Lodge. Anyone passing by would see the door ajar, blood smeared on the edges and running down to the cobblestones below, trickling out in a crimson web. The high pitched shrill cries of rats were cut off, one by one, the shouting dieing down long before the rising of the sun

— A man's agonizing screams for help were heard throughout the slums the previous night.  Bloodied claw marks littered one of the abandoned homes, fresh, though sans any bodies or the creature that spurned them. —

Outside the Sanctuary of the Eternal Dawn a note written in blood appears in the night

In the early morning before the sun rises the sound of shattering glass can be heard within the slums, an item tossed through the window of the kinship lodge. Act of a lone vandal or something far more sinister....

Long iron nails fix a single sheet of parchment into the sign of the Sanctuary of the Eternal Dawn. The ominous portent states thus:

"My soul is overflowing with obeisant reverence, and Your Most Illustrious Excellency of benignity, to you I most humbly bow." -Francesco Ferdinando Alfieri.

Two armed individuals bearing the symbols of Ezra spent a night by the door of the Halan Hospice, guarding the door and surrounding it with holy water and garlic.

The selfsame message returns to the temple not long after its removal. This time, it has been carved spitefully into the stone edifice of the building.

Outside of the Sanctuary of the Eternal Dawn a single sprig of woundwart is placed before it. In contrast a shattered vial is next to that

Outside of the Sanctuary of the Eternal Dawn, Late at night two figures could be seen talking, Soon their voice raised into yells as they argued, after they parted ways one vanishing into the night the other returning to the Temple.

During the night a bloody pentagram is drawn circling the sanctuary of eternal dawn

In the night there is a single cry out in pain before silence, a corpse found in the road surrounded by a pentagram with it's heart removed lays in the road. The heart is near by, in front of the sanctuary of the eternal dawn

A scuffle in the night, A quick yelp and a bloody knife as two figures flee the scene.  One crawling toward the gate, the other running for the Sewer.

In the pre-dawn hours, the steady gait of a lone pair of boots echoes down the city streets. Any night owl who happened to peer from a window or door would have seen the pale-skinned, dark-haired, half-elf Knight Templar striding around the city, head unconvered, greatsword slung haphazardly over one shoulder, and jade eyes staring at nothing as if lost in thought.

In the slums, he slows, then staggers over to a wall, where he seems to have some difficulty breathing. At the sound of approaching footsteps, he quickly dons his helmet with trembling hands.

A woman in martial garb accosts him, and they speak until well after the sun rises.

Painful cries of two women filled the night sky. As the dawn breaks, curious Barovians will wake up to find the mutilated bodies of two women in front of a broken house door to the northeast of the slums. Locals will recognize the bodies as Romana and Daniela Istrates, a mother and her daughter.

Come the early mornings of dawn as soon as the gate opens the grave keeper known as Bandages is seen hauling a large rack of wood, meats, and other things towards the Slums of Vallaki. Having crafted a box and sign paying some outlander to write

"Donations to the Needy in the Municipality"

The man leaves scores of ration tins for families and chunka of wood for fires to keep them warm for the winter. Those local wood see him lumber off with out word back into the forboding woods with bow at hand.

Late at night a man in the armor of a Lighcarrier stepped out of the Sanctuary of the Eternal Dawn. Turning, he drove a glowing spear through something that had been built next to the door, then walked off into the night.

A golden-haired young half-elven woman in a brown jacket could be seen accompanying a drowsy one-armed redhead through the western gate, leading her to the Sanctuary of the Eternal Dawn. Neither of them would emerge for some time afterwards.

Those who knew their faces would recognize the redhead and half-elf as Dawnbringer Bela Zingarros and Aela Lathyaan, respectively.

As the dusk falls; the body of a red-haired Morninglordian is carried into the Eternal Dawn by a man wearing a black and red cloak, accompanied by a sobbing Priestess and her Lightcarrier. Loud wails of grief can be heard from within moments after, and the noise does not stop for hours.

During the twilight hours a figure in a blue cloak is seen dashing through the alleyways on the southside of the slums. The low sound of rattling wood followed by quickened steps could be heard by anyone taking a fleeting interest.
A plague on both your houses!

Word starts to spread among the downtrodden of the Slums of Valiki. The Morninglord clergy it is said with planning being lead by Light Carrier Lauel Martovich is soon to be offering aide to those in need and who request it services to repair homes inside and out. Ranging from things such as doors, window shutters, to furniture and more. They will also be offering food delivery, clothing and such as well during this time. When this event is to happen is not exactly yet known but is said to possibly be happening in the next week. In the meantime Lauel Martovich it is said is taking donations of beech, oak, food stuffs, clothes, and coin donations for the event when it is to happen.
