The camp is bustling with activity, with rafts built near the small pond in preparation for a live cannon drill, the black powder is collected in small oiled fabric packets, and cannonballs readied in piles along with the cannons to be dragged out.

Sergeant Lis Claret, the woman practically living in the encampment for the last year or more, is nowhere to be seen tonight after requesting her first leave of absence since her service began.
Some might have seen her leaving the city for Edrigan in the company of her fiancé.

[With the Covenant's forces visible from a distance and camping mere miles from Port-a-Lucine's walls, a series of fortifications have been constructed all around the Jalabert family's sumptuous estate; behind those can be seen barrels with the lids removed, made to be filled with rain-water and crates over-stuffed with supplies and provisions. Moreover, tents have been erected, and bedrolls can be seen in the shed adjacent the estate. Often seen outside the estate, busying herself with all manner of preparations and keeping the Jalabert family's own retainers and personal bodyguards company is a fair-skinned scarlet-haired woman often wearing chainmail. She is joined often enough by those whom she simply labels as 'volunteers', armored men whose mannerisms are foreign yet strangely chivalric in their own way, reminiscent in many ways of antiquated knights.]

Rumours start spreading about some servants within the Jalabert's mansion being beaten, which is awkward considering the fame of the family. With all the chaos swirling around the Jalabert Estate, however, , it is only a few who note in hushed voices that a member of the family seems to have disappeared.

Through the early-winter winds and flurries the piercing sound of a Gendarme's signal whistle is heard from along the shoreline of the Baie de Parnault, where the Vistani often ferry foreigners in and out of the magnificent Capital of the Western Core. Several more signal whistles are heard, before a Falkovnian Gendarme is seen limping back to the City of Lights, a Zweihänder over his shoulder, a second wounded Gendarme, and two unscathed, if muddied Gendarmes in his presence alongside. What happened in the winter wilderness beyond the city's gates is anyone's guess, though the four Gendarmes seemed worse for wear.

A quiet rumour states that Anais Jalabert has come back from Chatefaux, and the previous rumours about her were highly overrated, and mostly slanders.

A patrol of Gendarmes was said to have pursued a man dressed in black and wearing a mask and tricorn hat out of the capital. A smattering of pistol shots could be heard rising from the fields along the shore, before Lieutenant Trelliard of the Gendarmerie was witnessed by those near the city gates escorting a shackled man in black garments into Port-a-Lucine. Both seemed wounded and suffering from gunshot wounds...

The nights following the high profile trial of Agnès Gauthier might have been peaceful for many, in the dead of winter, yet the environs of the Baie de Sable were disturbed by cries of agony which resounded through the trees, carried by the wind of the sea of sorrows. Beneath the light of the full moon, a few reported sightings of an enraged beast; a wounded thing whose suffering could only be consoled by the coming dawn.

On the 26th of Juin, a large and grand tent was erected by a mixture of Gendarmes and carpenters from the City of Lights where the old Company of the Fox Encampment once stood, along the Baie de Sable. Once erected, the parade monolith of cremé and red cloth towered, the banner of House Orsine - A Bear, clutching a two-handed blade, the banner of House Sallembier - Two silver foxes facing one-another on an open field, and the banner of the Gendarmerie Nationale de La Serene République de Dementlieu - A lighthouse surrounded by five stars, were draped over it's sides, and along the interior of the tent's tournament pit as well. As the sun settled on the City of Lights, numerous foreigners and locals alike flocked to the parade tent, for the Grand Tournament of Blades. The tournament carried on for many hours, before word spread to the City of the spectacle of swordplay and sportsmanship, which ended in a massive grand melee between all contestants simultaneously before the night's end. A melee of over twenty contestants.

A ship of shallow draft was seen pulling in to the hazardous, and forbidden Baie de Sable late into the evening of the 16th of Novembre. From it, a small unit of Gendarmes disembarked, most of them appearing to be foreigners serving as auxiliary militia, though the ranking members appeared to be of Dementlieuse birth. The pristine whites of the Gendarmerie Nationale's tell-tale uniform had been soaked a crimson red, replacing all of their splendor with but a reminder of the carnage further East. The bright blue of their coats mottled into brown-purples as the glaze of red blood tainted the color. They were worse-for-wear, and their equipment in poor condition, a young Dementlieuse woman whose rank would have otherwise been indicated by the presence of a crimson red sash, now, it too, blended in with the viscera and evidence of battle. Within their company, a man of strange, dark-blue skin and blood-stained white hair was carried by his comrades, as well as a young woman with ginger hair, both dressed in the uniforms of the Gendarmerie Nationale and neither seeming capable of carrying themselves due to severe injury. Soon, they would disappear into grand gates of the City of Lights...

A cacophany of gunfire echoes through the Baie de Sable, the ranks of the Fifth Company of the Fekete Sereg could be seen reloading, taking aim and fireing at the practice dummies ahead, sending plumes of gunsmoke into the air; a testament of the dedication and discipline of the Black Army. Following the session, overseen by Gendarme Sergeant Anatole de la Rochenoire, a loud cry came from the throats of the company: Vas és vér, a köztársaságért, For the Republic, Iron and Blood!

The crackling of gunshots echo out from the old training grounds of the Baie de Sable, the Fifth Company of the Black army appeared to be running a multitude of drills inside their camp, loud shouting of Orders could be heard all around followed by echoes of affirmation. The Company appeared fit and ready for whatever comes.

A thundering boom errupted from the military camp of the Fekete Sereg, startling animals and people alike. Those within the camp watched with great interest as Gendarmes Sallembier and De la Rochenoire instructed the Fifth company on the use and handling of the pinnacle of siege warfare; The cannon.

The Baie de Sable is alive with movement as members of the Fifth Company of the Fekete Sereg waste no time in striking their campsight. Several hours pass before the provisions and supplies are loaded onto wagons. By nightfall, there is nothing left but tracks in the mud.

Along the shore of the beach, a noblewoman lays dead, awful wounds in her throat, and drained of blood. Large bats circle the corpse.

Open to all comers without charge or dress code, the Dreaming Court's party proved to be a relentlessly strange affair. Odd art, alcohol and smoke filled the night. The eccentric hostess, the alienist Doctor Katja Vinter, conducted the affair as a mingling of art, occultism, therapy and revel. Nightmares were cast into the flames, games of joy were played and dance was had to a Gundarakite violin.

The bizarre hostess appeared more shadow than gnome throughout; a state that seems to have become a constant for the eccentric.

Lily & Michelle Anciaux were seen slipping out of Lucine without escort, in the direction of the nearby estates of the nobility. They returned after dawn in high spirits.

An idyllic fête champêtre along the Domaines de la Vie Éclairée dissolves into chaos when a nearby garden fountain runs red, much to the alarm and delight of the notably intoxicated crowd. Confused reports of minor injuries and panic result in the Gendarmes being summoned to the scene, where they are told two tales. The first is that a Lamordian stage magician of some repute made the fountain run with the sweetest of wines as her latest and most brazen trick. Others swear there was no magician, female or otherwise, and have no explanation for the sanguine font. In either case, by the time the Gendarmes have restored order to the raucous bacchanal, the fountain has been drunk dry, and only red stains that yet cling to the cracks of the fountain remain to give credit to the stories at all.

The sound of musket fire rings through the desolate beach night repeatedly.  In the dark, the occasional muzzle flash would illuminate the surrounding beach and woodland.  Come the morning, those who investigated would find two straw dummies with the likeness of Falknovnian soldiers would be riddled with lead-filled holes; on inspection each shot was made with careful precision.  The person responsible seems to have been practicing their marksmanship.

Sometime after dusk, a loud and bright explosion flared up on the shore of the Baie de Sable.  What sounded to be a man shouting could be heard before the trees and the darkened woodland turned to deafening silence for the remainder of the eve.  Come the morning, there would be evidence of a small ordinance test around several straw-stuffed dummies, dressed like Falkovnian soldiers. Scraps of burnt clothing and bloodied bandages could also be seen settled in the aftermath, with a pair of limping footsteps towards Port-a-Lucine...

As the deployment to the Silent Fields draws near, men clothed in black and blue uniforms are seen delivering several crates and barrels to what is now the encampment of The Company of the Bridge. A familiar face, who some might know as Solomon Valcourt, was seen directing the flow of supplies to the camp and assisting with the inspection. Upon the side of each crate or barrel would be a branded emblem...

Late one night, a great deal of shouting takes place. Raised voices in Mordentish and Akiri, echo across the bay, along with the infrequent glow of arcane science. Eventually the voices fade, and a small party makes their way to the Vistani carrying with them a familiar crate. Larissa Vouvire returns alone to the city, speaking to no-one.
