Under order of the city watch the Hospice on Strada Sobolan is placed under quarantine, locals spit at its door from the other side of the street, blameing the outlander proprietors for bringing disease to an already striken populace.

A Mother is seen searching for her missing child in the Slums but soon she is found to be gone also, garda where seen to investigate but with so many additional people now in the slums due to the influx of people from the Zeklos lands it was impossible to find any clues.

[several fights have recently been reported to be breaking out between those of the Keep and locals now living in the crowded space in the slum, one even ended in a knife fight recently]

The Vallaki Militia have been showing their faces more frequent, keeping a wary eye on the overcrowded slums. An old familiar face is seen amongst the ranks, causing the otherwise somewhat lax Militia to stand rigid.
Former Boyar Garda drinking themselves to an early grave at all times in the Tigans have a Militia Inlistment list shoved infront of them.
Passers by see the Militia training once more as the snows begin to melt from their old batterd targets.

The Bounty and Commisions office besides the Militia Headquarters is frequently visited by off duty Militia, bettering the lands whilst on and off duty.

A diseased body was recently seen being disposed of in the sewers, the features where obscured by boils and puss, everyone seems tight lipped on what the person died of.

"A rosed robed priest of the Morninglord has been seen going amongst the slums of Vallaki, offering words of hope and refuge, particularly to those Gundarakite families worst affected by poverty within the city. A Gundarakite of older years himself, he identifies himself as Baltazar, and his message is one of salvation through faith. He urges mothers to encourage their sons to join in service to the Church as a way to escape the crime and violence they frequently find on the streets of the slums. He lets it be known that he can be sought out at the Vallaki respite, and implores all he speaks with to join him as a community, in prayer at the respite, every Seventh day."

OOC: Any character who wishes to attend this weekly congregation, PM me and I will let you know times as I am sure of them, in as far advance as possible. (I will also post them here.) These sessions will last for maybe half an hour, and then I will be around for another three hours or so rp time. Anyone who wants to can PM me an In Character post, as Baltazar can always be found at the respite. (I can CC these in game PMs to a DM, if needs be to make them official, I have very limited time with access to a computer that has the game on it, so I sort of need to find a way around it.)

Garda Domna Bobboc is seen bouncing along the alleyways of the slums in the early morning, slowly making her way towards the Morning Lord Rectory. The packs of rats that usually flee in her wake seem to have become bolder, the odd rat tying its luck, ending up with a snapped neck and hurled across the street...

Corporal Belovich was seen in the Militia Barracks late last night. His mood darker than ever. Word is, he threw around bedding off the bunks, punched several walls and screamed himself horse at any militia he could find. Then stormed out early in the morning.

The sick and the hungry have been seen finding care in the hands of the veiled women who run the hospice next door to the Prancing Nymph.  They ask not anything in return, and offer a comfortable mat, warm tea, and attention to all manner of ailment and malady. The door is said to remain open to anyone through all hour of the day and night.

A little terrier dog has been seen in and around the Militia Headquarters, frolicking about playfully.  The dog's owner seems to be Militia Recruit Nephis Anskuld, who affectionately calls the dog "Marco" and has been seen carrying it inside the barracks every evening.  Grumbling men from inside the barracks report that she keeps it on an arrangement of paper next to her bed, feeding it scraps from her own meals.

Active: Nephis Anskuld, Uzura Kraehe

An elf wearing the trappings of the morninglords Church has been seen going around house to house passing out food to the hungry and encouraging them to visit the church.

Dumped awkwardly and unceremoniously before the heavy door of the Militia Headquarters, the body of a poor Barovian man has been discovered at dawn. Some citizens speak of the horror evident upon his drained pale, lifeless features, as if afflicted by Iadul Vrolok witch magicks. Scribed upon his forehead, a bloodied carving of a pentacle.

Talk of Nica Zuyev leaving the Guarda also surfaces.  Some comment that it is about time, no woman belongs in the Guarda.  Others, mostly woman are disapointed with the outcome.  All however speak of the death in Nica's family which has fallen on hard times and even if they won't say it out loud, most blame the Burgomeister of the city fully aware that Nica and many of the Guarda have not been paid for a long time.

Ye heard what's said to have happened at the Militia barracks?
'twas attacked by a witch leading a two-headed giant statue made of bones. 'twas hacked apart by some outlanders before they could do real harm. They even caught that witch... but you won't believe it: when they brought it to the militia to be punished, they did not even care. 'sent them away, and so did the garda. So now, we have another witch running freely. Down the sewers it fled, i heard. *shakes head*
Outlanders chasing witches and militia letting them off the hook. Gibberish, if you ask me. If it only were not for the huge pile of bones on the street i saw...

Two bodies where found in the street a mother and child embrassed in death, their bodies riddled with boils, and maggots crawling over them, flies buzzed around them continuosly, the militia that where seen to find them immediatly set them aflame, nearly bearning down one of the over ground slum dwellings, the locals including several displaced Zeklos farmers watched on in silence.

Large clangs and scraping can be heard in the dead of night. Upon inspection in the morning, there are long scrapes in the stonework of the guard barracks

Word among the Militia spreads over the mysterious disappearance of Sargeant Iorgovan. Last seen escorting a darkly dressed woman upstairs in the Militia barracks the words " Traitor " were shouted in the local tongue by a womans voice. The noises of a scuffle were heard but when the room was finally entered there was no sign of either, only a few splashes of blood and some knocked over furniture from what appeared to be a fight. Many wonder what terrible powers the old war dog angered and if he will be seen again.

A fierce battle occured in board day light between Vallaki Guard, Corporal Cazacul and an unnamed witch dressed in the white robes of an Ezrite. The Ezrite-Witch dared to resist the Garda's orders and attacked with witchery and a summoned giant red skinned monster. Several guardsmen died in the attempt to aide the Corporal, The witch escaped into shadows and darkness.

A tattered, and ruined paper seems to have found its way in the slums. It almost seems as if it was discarded...

A woman in white & blue of the local Hospice has been see handing out vegtables & fruit to those willing to accept , selecting the shiniest apples & cherries for the children of this woefull district , with each she hails a merry "Buna Lughnassadh !"


Quote
Lughnassadh (Loo-nass-ahd) falls on
August 1st and marks the first day of harvest.
Halites both give and receive gifts of vegetables
and fruit on this day and the week that follows.
Altars in the chapels found in the temples and
hospices of Hala are covered with earthy brown
sheets, which in turn display some of the
produce they are gifted with.

[Another of the hospitalers was seen asking passersby near the Slobodan Hospice if they had seen any further instances of plague or pox. She wore the now familiar white and blue trimmed robes with the snake-rimmed motif around the sleeves.]
