The Mountain Trembles... and the Dead Rise Anew
« on: January 03, 2021, 11:37:21 PM »
Mount Baratak quakes with a terrible roar during the night in what is regarded as another cataclysm marking darker times. The resonance of the quakes are felt as far as Vallaki and it damages only the roughest homes while otherwise displacing poorly secured possessions throughout the Grey City. The more disturbing sight is realized come dawn with the carrion stench along the shoreline of Lake Zarovich. Hundreds of fish wash ashore rotting and threaten the most significant trade of the port town. The fishermen quickly turn their superstitions towards blaming witchcraft for the terrible blight ... though rumors spread that the source was not the lake, but the mountain beyond, where it is said the dead rose and filled the night with terrors.
