Citizens awake in the morning to the sight of two dead Gundarakites, both dressed in dark clothing and hood and armed with swords. A little later the Garda come and collect the bodies not bothering to ask anyone any questions.

Murmurs spread of a girl working at the Nymph gone missing, Lena and her sister Natalie, Natalie just had a daughter named Dominique, fueled by the other dissapearances threwout Vallaki. The peasants swiftly jump to accusations, most prominently a man dressed in white and a Ezrite leaving their residence in the morning.

It does not take long for the local Garda to take note.

After the recent dissapearance's threwout the slums of the city, the peasants seem to group, children kept close, the already bolted doors double checked and then checked once more.
The local militia even joining in on the Garda's patrols.

"Cellar Dwellers" crudely written in charcoal and blood begins to appear on the side of buildings, and walls in the slums district. What it means remains to be seen. Yet it's causing a bit of a stir.

As of late, fliers advertising Gunpowder for sale have been seen littering the streets of Vallaki, some lying in the gutter, some even being boldly nailed to certain establishment doors. They all name a 'Domna Lisbeth' as the contact source. Many are curious to find out who this woman could possible be.

In the bounty office, some adventurer asked vaguely of crests and banners of the area and described one. The local Garda glared and stated "Von Zeklos Garda... mult strange". The gossip, as many other, especially recalling that name, always cause dismay and fear. What is true or what is not, is not important right now: just the name evokes a past which should have been better forgotten.

A new outlander seen the past few days has taken it seems a shinning to the Sanctuary of the Eternal Dawn in the slums, delivering usually every or every other day sizable supply of meats of all sorts. These deliveries began regularly shortly after a faithful had suggested to the man a way to aide in surviving fights against undead and other creatures.

"..Seemed like a good idea at the time to repay advice that keeps me alive to scrap by.." he said with a shrug only ever it seems asking for occasional healing, a safe place to rest and a few pieces of garlic. He is also seen in more recent days also studying various books of all topics some on the various religions of the area others of the history such that it is of barovia, etc.

He does not seem to be trying to fight any foes he comes, merely knowing and understanding the place he now dwells in.

during the night it seems that a lone rebel attempted to bomb the militia's barracks. However by the rumors indicating that the rebel fled, it seems to have been a failed bombing, thanks to the militia chasing the rebel away.

Two vrolok heads were left by the Bounty office, a horrible sight, at least according to the locals who walked around it in a big circle.. affraid they might come to live again.

Word is alive of a Templar of Ezra seen dragging a coffin through the streets of Vallaki in the dead of night. Some whisper that it is the Ezrites stepping up to face the Old Night, others say that the Mist-Witches seek coffins for their unnatural rites. Whatever the truth of the matter may be remains a sinister mystery.

//OOC: Whichever MPC left their coffin in the slums (Hiding place ommited to protect the innocent), it's now in the hands of the Ezrite Faction.

In the mid morning hours of the past several days, the more down trodden of dwellers in the slums would find a sunkisser cultist known to some as Don Og, a man previously content to just provide food to the eternal dawn sanctuary has now branched out.

In this case he is seen with an ox carrying bundles of dried oaken wood and kindling of all sizes to the families with a pack of flint and steel accompanied in addition each pack holds a day and half worth of fish and deer meat preserved and ready for cooking. As well as a few small containers to hold them in.

He gives these packages out to any that would accept them by hand, or if they do not answer leaves them by their door. He does this with a friendly smile to all regardless how he is generally treated.

A final note is those with children would find hand crafted cloth/leather made dolls and toys.

Outlanders, and people who venture during the night by the slums, have been disappearing, rumors spread of a group called 'The Black Band' a band of cut throat bandits, murderers, and alike, tall tales of odd demons working beside them in their efforts. - Disguising themselves as Guardsmen during the night as well.

Rumors presist of a young girl seemingly dancing about, though her chant sounds more like that of one mourning a lost lover. It is only in briefest passing that some recall her appearance, but there are a few that swear that they have seen her standing at the edges of the forest whispering into the nothingness of the darkness.  Some say she is but a mad child, lost to the torments which plague the land, but others think she is possessed by witchery.
Some traveling from the dwarf city have even said they have seen a similar young lady dressed all in black leading an oxen and cart laiden with copper ingots, though she seems to skirt around the city at a distance before proceeding north.  Even a local sneak is saying that she is perhaps possessed, as he followed her from the southern gates of valliki around the outside of the city just to see her and her oxen vanish into thin air, almost as if a spirit fading into the on comming fogs that evening.
What ever the reason, or who ever this person is, it seems to be getting a bit more noisy in the sections of town where the seedy and sneaky hang out, rumors of ill omen surrounding the girl arising as warding gestures are made at the mention of her in drunken whispers.

Lately, even a few claim they have seen the woman in dark cloathing bartering with others who have remained hooded and unknown, and then days later hauling off oxen pulled carts of oddly carved stones.

Days ago a body was found in an alleyway in the slums. The body was found in a unique condition. There were black buttons stitched to his eyes, and his mouth was stitched shut. There was a stab wound in his shoulder, and all his fingers were broken. His leather shirt was ripped open, and a his stomach appears to have been cut open and stitched back up. Oddly, part of his foot was also missing. Rumor has it that his organs had been removed, and replaced with cotton.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This morning a body was found in much the same condition as the one days ago, only a few alleyways from the first. The same stitchery were there, though there were many more injuries. It would seem the backs of his knees were shredded, as well as one of his elbows, and a shoulder. The most striking feature about this one was it seems half his face, although stitched like the other, had been ripped off.

The local children can be heard singing a new nursery rhythm. "Firefly, firefly she might be dead, but late at night she searches for her head!"

A darkly clothed man has been seen going around to known Gundarakite residences. Where he finds people who have not yet fled persecution, he speaks with the inhabitants for a few minutes, and then moves on to the next home.

As morning breaks and the residents of the Slum District awake they find several abandoned tenants and empty apartments. Word quickly spreads that the remaining Gundarakite families fled on mass in the night. Many a Barovian is heard issuing colorful words of resentment, including landlords who are owed rent.

In the early morning Barovian light, three native females are seen in the alley of the slums near the Prancing Nymph, scrubbing furiously with hot water and rags.  It would seem that they are removing what appears to be rebel propaganda from the walls of buildings around the Romulich Establishment.  A smoldering depiction of Strahd, hung high on one of the towers is pulled down and disposed of.

A yelling match between two women is heard echoing through the slums in the dead of night. A sharp, pained screech is heard after the clash of swords. Not long after, a woman dressed in dark colors is seen dragging the limp body of another through the streets of Vallaki, towards the Refuge of the Fifth Light.

A black cloaked man is seen franticly hanging Garlic, and crosses at the entrances of The Prancing Nymph Casino.

Just before sundown the performer Serafim Ianescu was seen being dragged by a large man down an alley, by her hair where she was promptly robbed and beaten badly.

Just before dusk the young Barovian woman Serafim Ianescu was seen leaving baskets of food for the residents in the slums district with blessings of Ezra and offering some fangs to the small children as she so often does.

The rich arms merchant from Immol, Nicu Tesla was found inside an abandoned house, his head decapitated this morning. The Vallaki Guard is investigating the crime. Rumors say that it is the work of Gundarakite Rebels.
