There are rumors that short, scaled humanoids have been spotted in Khem near the hours of dawn and twilight. Some say they are kobolds. Some say they are drakes or demons. Whatever they are, they've never been seen like this before and the residents of Nes'ek and Djedet are worried...


// I'll be running an event Monday March 15th in Djedet, around 5pm EDT/9pm GMT (tooth pain permitting, hopefully)! Also cleaned up the topic. Note: this is after the time change in the US, so the difference between USA Eastern and GMT is only -4 hours.

Rumors are that during the full waxing of the Bloodmoon, the Moonblades and the militant order Alaric commanded- the MoonKnights- are going to be surveying operations from the Lord Protector Mortimer's loaned warship- The (Last) Justicar.

Rumors are that Alaric was seen holding hands with Commander Illunamaeryx and Larissa Moonblade with some returned, disgraced ex-patriot!

Rumors are that Mortimer even left some Platinum Knights and a single Everguard to help supportive maneuvers in Moonpier while Cystana continued to grieve their last king while simultaneously beginning preparations to celebrate The Little King to Come.

Rumors are the beating drums from Malarfang might indicate that Amia was just chosen for a Malarite High Hunt competition.

Rumors are the Eilistraee drow still plan to have their own High Hunt during the full moon. Dangerous day and night folks.

Rumors are that the Rebellion still have one last big shenanigans served with a side of violent assault, at least, before regrouping!

Rumors are weird omens, portents and whispers are gathering in the frozen wastelands outside the dwarf strongholds there.

Rumors are more than one cult have seen the Bloodmoon as an awakening to their callings- hopefully they weren't all red-obsessed though?

Rumors are..

Rumors spread of a large dark clad silver winged figure appearing under cover of night visiting various places on the northern half of the island. Those witnessing say it stands still until screaming out seemingly in great pain before flying off once again.

Across all of Amia any hungry mouth of a sentient being that has seen times of hardship would find near them when they wake a bottle of fresh milk and enough food for one day. There would be no traces of where this came from, and any magic used would show it as mundane and safe food.

Word begins to spread of a great misfortune befalling distant Endir's Point. If rumor is to be believed, a great amount of wheat disappeared from the hamlet's granary - leaving its inhabitants in a panicked scramble to secure more food during the long winter. Opportunistic merchants consider the benefit and costs of delivering supplies to the isolated settlement. Several hunters see an opportunity...

A young drowess, on hearing these rumours, sets about finding the people that have experienced it, to see if she can see what's going on. In the meantime, what meat and milk her animals produce is left for those she speaks to, and those she meets that are in need.

The young drawers would find the same similar story among dozens of people or more if you would continue to ask. Doesn't seem to matter if you were a farmer in Southport, a criminal in a forgotten jail, a hermit in the forest all be very similar. Anyone that went to bed the night before hungry would of woke with fresh clean food near them that tasted delightful and gave them enough substance to be well feed with just the single meal for the whole day. The contents of food would vary depending on the person almost to personal taste it would of seemed. Though the eerieness of where the food came from seems no one can explain or can fathom it.

"Did you hear about the man that got attacked and a dart in his eye."

"Heard multiple people died"

"What will the new Minister Griff do about these attacks in his inn?"

"My poor horse..."

Shrine of Eilistraee

"What was that awful screaming last night?"

"Did you hear another blood bath mangled bodies right outside by the waterfall."

"Heard it was about puppy love? What does that even mean?"

Rumor has it, one of the beautiful dancers of the Mermaid's Tail on Demonreach is missing now. Apparently she was a fair Selkie Maiden, who was forced to work there in hopes of getting her Seal Coat back, which had been stolen from her.

Poetic Justice had it, that said Seal Coat was stolen once more, but this time returned to the lovely lady who was quite greatful and swiftly returned to the sea she had missed so dearly.

One tiefling named Eric was far less greatful and is quite furious. Having always been a grouch, he surely now is even more grouchy when passing out drinks in the Mermaid's Tail.

Word has spread that carts should be wary of traveling through the Dragon's Junction. Reports of missing carts have been increasing. Personal and Merchant alike. There appears to be no distinction between them getting abducted. All travel in the area should take the highest caution.

Reports show a set of carts and wagons went missing. Last reported being heading through Dragons Junction. The Road Wardens report the wagons were found among a mass of bodies crudely hung in the trees across the junction. The bodies were identified as orcs of the Bloodmoon tribe. None of the operators of the carts or wagons were found. All goods were stripped from the carts and wagons and then set aflame. After a long day and through the night the fires were put out by the Road Wardens of the West Squad.

Rumors heard of some kind of spidery issue in the valley of the arachnid. From what's heard apparently there was a massive number of spiders that poured out of the cave to attack a foe, and then one ridiculously huge spider came....... the foe? Oh just a goblin riding the back of a driver.... is it truth? Is it rumor? Did someone find their way into malandrias special stash?

Early one morning the Council of Elders in Howness seem to gather for a meeting. All and all a short meeting over tea in the local tavern. They seem to be discussing a few things before going for a stroll to the southwestern portion of the town. A bit longer standing and looking about, pointing at the area they return home.
