Word has it that a runner, unmistakable from his vast height, left the Keep sometime in the day towards the grey city. He makes his way to the Rectory of the Refuge of Fifth Light in Vallaki, and is said to have delivered a rolled-up parchment tied in green ribbon, for the attention of the Warden Nell Ward.

a Carriage Bearing the Stravokov Coat of arms is seen leaving the Zeklos lands heading west towards Zeidenburg. the servant speak of the Knighted Noble leaving in the dead of night. the Infamous name fading from the Zeklos land as the daily activity's of the Populace go on about their routines.

the Carriage arrives at a decrepit mansion, along the borders of the Tepurich Forset. a dark figure emerges from the cab as the cold night mist swirls beneath his feet. the front door of the estate slowly creeks open and the dark figure heads inside.

Aleyi, one of the fifth clergy mutters about the rumours and wonders what has happended. A most odd turn of event he think. He seems to take much caution around the Von Zeklos keep and barely leaves the Chapel.

A blonde elven man, wearing green, wanders to the keep, reads the signs, and mumbles to himself.
"Hmm... if they threw out all those guards, then perhaps there is a chance I can get a job."

A dwarf wearing robes and a cloak tightly pressed to his body catches a glimpse of the sign and reads it aloud.
He moves forward into the city in look of some paper and ink.

Words of the quiet leave from Zeklos Lands of said 'Bastion Lilas Wurtbeich' and some of his fifth Sect close members are ushered into Old Night, no where to be seen, the heresy slips like the tendrils of the Mists...

It is rumored some ghostly visage could be seen roaming the Von Zeklos family crypt area.  An image... perhaps even Ezra herself.

 Rumors began to spread from the keep to the farmlands around the keep that the lord Vincent von Zeklos has asked Lady lavinia Niculaie for her hand in marriage. They also say the wedding is set for the following day. Some wonder why so fast after his recovery.

Panic seizes the night as the gates of the keep are flung open. Boyar Guards are found massacred all throughout the grounds, while all that remains found of the Zeklos Boyar and his sister are their headless bodies. The Chapel in more disarray than usual, the Toret Alurto found dead among the bodies. The night sky by the end of the massacre gives off an orange glow as what remains of the broken keep burns throughout the night into the morning.

Recent shudders shake the remaining foundations and surrounding lands of the smouldering Keep, a faint light and soft chanting can be heard emitting from the Chapel, some of the local farmers who ventured into the Keep to pay tribute to Ezra murmur that it looks like the chanting and light flickering from a hole in the wall of the Keep comes from the Hall of where the Sword Of Gregory stands set in stone.

In the aftermath of the slaughter and raid on the Keep, farmers and peasants are in shock. While a few peasants come to assist the Keep, many more are too afraid to approach the Keep, preferring to stay inside or leave their lands for good. Many families are seen packing up, herding their livestock and hoping for a better future elsewhere.

At the same time, an influx of poor and confused servants and nobles flock to Vallaki and even all the way to Krezk, spreading rumors of what happened at the von Zeklos Keep. Their tales vary wildly, but they all agree on one point. That Night itself descended upon the Keep and that the forces of darkness and evil attacked the Keep. Some blame this curse on the Ezrites, these poisonous Dilsnyia schemers while others speak of the strange and sometimes dark affiliations the Keep's own tenants had maintained throughout the years.

Farmers return to their homes as a large unit of irregulars passes through the lands towards the keep, returning hours later battlescard and weary.

What great tragedy had happened in the von Zeklos lands!

The new boyaress Nicoletta von Zeklos - beloved by the populace for her beauty and wisdom - was murdered by hideous assassins from the west on the first day of her new reign! This had promissed so much hope and light to the populace! After the dark tragedy had striked down so hard upon the boyaress family! And now - everything is gone! Just the hatred and the desire for vengance in the populace remains! Some speak of a rebellion. Some of wicked murderers. Each and everyone was slain in the keep. It is rumoured that not one had survived the contumelious deed.

Farmers were fleeing from these thugs. To the north, to the south or to the east.

One can just hope that our beloved count Strahd von Zarovich will have his men hunting these assassins down soon. The populace at least mutters that it was outlanders performing the deed. Thus one can assume it will be hard times annunciate themselves on the horizon for every non-Barovian...

At least until the last one of these traitors is being found and brought to righteous judgement...

Flickering candlelight and muted prayers echoing from within the courtyard of the von Zeklos keep.  The faithful praying in the sight of the ruined chapel - mourned as the Blessed Home of the Fifth Revelation.

A river boat sails its way eastward along the Luna River towards Lake Zarovich. Its crew, a half dozen swarthy tigans can be seen scanning the river banks of the cursed Zeklos Lands armed with crossbows. A single name painted in gold along the boats bow, "Tua Fellazad".

A lone figure is seen walking through the ruins as if searching for something. A loud cry of anguish is heard coming from the keep before dawn. Through the mist and rubble the figure is seen climbing out. The tabard this woman seems to ware is stained with old and fresh blood yet is white and bares a familiar sigil.

[Rumor spreads of a terrible midnight siege against the recently reclaimed keep there. The zealots, champions of the Ezrite 4th revelation, and the resident authority... Toret Heinrych Frauenlob who is the voice of the Sentire in his absence has called that the keep and its surrounding lands be cleaned... that none shall enter the keep, or leave it.. until he deems it safe....]

// The keep will be kept locked down until the next reset.

The Wandering knight known as Sir Solomon, Knight of the sun Has been seen poking around the Von Zeklos lands. The majority of is time is spent going to and from the Wachter Province into Von Zeklos lands. Investigation seems to be all that is on his mind. What exactly? No one knows.

Vasile Mikovich - Tigan Straight Outa Vallaki
Straven Crowe -  Hes somewhere around here.....
