Rumours, Gossip and Whispers.. ((DM Posts Only))
« on: July 30, 2021, 09:31:06 am »
Rumours and whispers can be heard in the regions tavern's and inns about an enclave where you need a strong will or your animal nature will take over. This is laughed at as a joke but other say they have seen it with there own eyes. Either way this enclave has been seen of late moving over the Patrician Plains.

Farmers of Conch are heard complaining to whomever will listen, about the increase in crows attacking there farms and taking their crops. Some say it is the circle of nature and these crows will die out when the foods is gone but this also means the town will suffer in a loss of food supply. Others say their is someone or something behind it but do not know who or why someone would do this.
Build it and they will come.

Those that sit and listen to the local Rengarth plainsmen around a campfire, are told of a story of a lost army. The story varies from campfire to campfire but one thing is clear in the stories told, they all speak of the strength of the army and the fact that the leader of the army was mislead.

Those travelling near the path to the Twisted Caves and Fang Peak will notice some activity from possible earthquakes in the area. The local Rengarth plainsmen say that the Gods are awakening ...

Denvar's Bridge suffered an attack from a raging Goblin Warband, many would-be heroes, mercenaries and even the odd money-hungry monster stood guard against the onslaught.

The commonfolk throughout Conch start to get agitated with the talk of Netherese overloads returning to the lands, some whisper of monsters stealing away their children in the night while others ignore such concerns with the struggles of daily life being a more serious concern.

There seems to be some movement and gatherings in each district ...

The University held an open day today, a number of new apprentices where welcomed to study fulltime and more students have registered to learn the Arcane Arts at this well known place of study in the region.

A small party was held at the West Netheril Trade Company, as fulltime merchants have been added to the company. Drinks were had and contracts signed ... talk of trade and information where topics of conversation.

A group of gang members had been seen moving around the Slums District. Some say they had been new intakes into the gang after being tested. Other say it was a gang war over turf. Either way the Slums is a dangerous place to be seen unless you known the locals.

In recent days, people in the slums and out in the fields have sworn by every god that they see large packs of rats moving about. Some have even had near fatal encounters. No one knows for sure why the rodent population is suddenly so noticeable but the rat catchers of Conch are making a killing they say.

People go missing all the time. Conch is a cruel and rough place surrounded by threats on all sides always. But the number of missing has been going up and while some are content to blame it on the gangs and monsters of the slums; even they notice their own going missing at a higher rate. Those who pay attention and look past the rhetoric and propaganda of the rich and influential are concerned.

Birds are seen circling the marshlands in the morning and in the eve. Some say there must be food there, other say this is not normal for birds. Either way the farmers still complain about crop looses to crows.

there is unconfirmed reports of an Orcan Pirate ship that sails out of the trading town of Sullivan's, has been making threats against the other ships unless they pay a fee for safe passage. What in the hell is next ...

The University is a buzz with a group of apprentices researching and collecting information on a Lost Village, that in the past had a connection with one of there own. What it means to the University and the apprentices is unsure at this time but many an apprentice has burnt the midnight candles in search of information.

Talk around the Markets district is the bodies that have been found near and around the creek dock area. The unusual thing is the state of the bodies, with little or no blood found within them. The Western Trading Company has dismissed these reports as silly rumours.

Word on the streets of the Slums District is that there was an attempt on the leader of Diiri’s Boys gang. It is unsure what the result was but the gang has tightened its grasp on the area, with more than normal gang members walking the street and alleyways.

Conch is abuzz with the news that Giona Morton, controversial editor of the Conch Champion, has mysteriously vanished.  He was last seen yesterday at mid-morning in the Conch bank, but Morton did not return to his office or home.  When his staff reporting him missing, WNTC guards searched the office of the Conch Champion and found on Morton’s desk a copy of the latest issue.  The cryptic message “Sit more, be where her port lies” was scrawled in purple ink on the front page.  Morton’s staff could provide no clues other than saying that their editor’s behaviour has become increasingly erratic of late.

The sick and their carers in the slums notice a strange phenomenon this week.  For a few days injuries healed slightly faster and the ill recovered a little quicker than expected.  No one could explain what caused the effect but it was experienced by the ill and hurt whatever their condition, but only those in West Conch.  Whatever the cause, it seemed to fade after a few days leaving those who noticed it confused but grateful.

In the days since the strange rats, the vast sums of halfling disappearances and the shadow they formed over Hilltop. It seems the region is still not rid of its perils. In recent days, outside villages and hamlets, merchants along the trade roads and even river ships have spied masses of bands of armored warriors.

The bands always number no more then thirty, and consist of strange half-breeds. Orcs with long arms and hunched backs like trolls. Orogs and giant men with various colored scales, draconic and demonic wings standing. And other unnatural spawn of a vivisectors dream.

The bands attack the most defenseless of villages, often burning homes and taking away plunder. So far, only a few deaths have been reported by the sad refugees that begin making their way to any walled city. Conch is especially overrun by refugees, filling the slums further and Hilltop has seen many outside hins arriving to their small village. The mayor of Hilltop and the resident mage are struggling to accommodate their new arrivals.

And perhaps sensing opportunity, bands of mercenaries from official forces to small squads of former brigands looking to make some “legit” money have begun showing up offering their services for a hefty price. But it all seems a prelude to something darker and bloodier.
