[A cloaked Barovian woman is seen going around the slums leaving carefully wrapped bundles of firewood as winter swiftly approaches. She speaks no words as she goes about her business]

Over the course of approximately a week, a young half-gundarakite/half-vistani woman is seen begrudgingly handing out bread to any poor Barovian beggars who wander by her makeshift stall.

She occasionally converses with passers by, but generally wears a scowl and is unwelcoming to any who try to engage her in conversation.

The bread, however, is always fresh and usually warm.

[Strange activity abound in one of the slum's many abandoned properties. An armored figure in green and white trudging about back alleys, hauling lights and basic amenities in and out throughout the day. When night breaks, candlelight may be seen spilling out from under the door and through boarded windows. It seems the house has found a new occupant.]

As silent as a ghost, a young Barovian woman in the pink and gold robes of the Morninglord's faith is seen moving through the Slums, her destination seemingly the Sanctuary of Eternal Dawn. In the grey haze before the chorus of morning, she is seen carrying a large bundle of cloaks; bound for the Orphanage, an urgent delivery of warm padded cloaks for the kids. Each cloak embroided with a dawnburst icon at their hems.

The candle outside the hospice in the Slums glows bright, healers in residence.

As night falls, an armoured man in a white cloak bearing a clasped hands symbol exits to douse the light. He returns inside and the door is locked.

Word is spread mostly from the locals of a creature which roams through the night, and seems to patrol the streets of the city. It is described as a creature covered in armour that seems to be hovering on a floating core. A few eye witness accounts would describe it striking down wererats with the utmost effeciency, piling up the bodies for easy clean up the next morning. Some accounts would claim that it even helped some people who were caught out at night.

A trio hurry through the rain this morning, two of them clad in matching blue formal-wear, suited to a wedding. They make haste to the hospice, spending a short time within, and leave before dusk falls.
It is not an ending, but an ebbing.

[Two bodies are found in the slums of Vallaki, both wearing robes of the Morninglord, following the wake of two screams that were cast throughout the old night.  It seems they were on their way to the sermon held at dusk, falling just short of sanctuary.  The throats of the dead were ripped out, bodies now entirely drained of blood and death left to the sanctity of the noapte.  Even still, their countenances were contorted into a permanent expression of abject horror, their dead faces stuck screaming their last moments of torment...]

Blood is daubed on the ground before the Hospice, cruel words written in it. It is soon cleaned away, but the place is locked up afterwards, only being entered by figures in white robes, and a trio of Garda. At dawn one day a procession of veiled and hooded holy people leaves, carrying a number of bundles wrapped in cloth that look like bodies.

Some time later, the candle is seen lit once more, and the door unlocked. Healers in residence.

Later it is doused.

A disgusting view greets the office workers, as they approach the Vallaki bounty and commission office in the early morning.

For a time today any who were to walk past the Wayfarer's Lodge would find the door hanging open...and the smell of gore and spoiled meat drifting from within. The first to enter would find organs and a severed head scattered about the room, and scrawled in blood across the banner a coiled snake with bared fangs. The defiler, whoever it may have been, nowhere to be found.
