Today, a priest already well-known for his frequenting of ladies had the infamous Temptress and an elf known for frivolity escorted into a quiet nook of the Spires of the Morning before dismissing the acolyte. Both ladies were apparently there by special invitation, and greeted him in a highly friendly fashion...and some time later, exited looking very pleased with themselves, and not a little disheveled.

That's where the rumors start, anyway. Where they end up...depends only on the depravity of the mind in question.

~STOP THE PRESSES!~

The long rumored existance of crocodiles in the sewers was expanded upon earlier today with a flying crocodile falling from the sky! No one knows where it came from and no one knows where it went!

Perhaps there really are crocs down there in the sewers!

*Step and fire, fire, fire, all in rapid succession, just as the drow turns to meet her fate, the first arrow hits her shoulder to catch her attention fully and the second embeds into her right eyeball.. It takes almost a second later for the drow to realise she's dead.. then she topples.*

The rumor spreads amongst the lower classes of the city, rougher bars pick it up.. within a couple of rides the city knows of it. The archer is Jiriki...

TOME RAIDERS!

Postby Failbhe » Wed Oct 06, 2010 6:35 pm

Word ripples across the city in the world of parents. Tome Raiders, a well known publisher of children's books, is starting a print run of a new book. The book will be available at their bookstore in the Trades Ward inside the end of the ride. The word is that this book is not a children's book though, but a 'who done it' mystery novel.

Watch members were called to the North Ward's Chains that Bind, a high end jewelry store, at the report of a body found within the store. The proprietress was found dead. Apparently nothing was taken despite the keys to all the cases being in her hand. Watch is searching for any witnesses.

The remains of an unidentified man was found inside a the leather wrappings of a practice dummy early this morning. The Watch was called. When the body when cut down rose up as an undead creature striking down two members of the Watch before it could be subdued. The remains of the Watch men is being observed closely by the priests at the Spires of the Morning to ensure they also do not rise again.

The Drow are back! Word has spread. They've attacked shops especially, and individuals. Their motives are known: They are hunting people who have drow items on their person, or in their shops. The messages make it clear. It's not just the reclaiming of their items. It's an attack on surfice dwelling arrogance. If you have these items, or know people that do, keep a eye open, test your food, and don't walk around alone.

Despite significant security surrounding it, the reception cruise for the wedding of Arwyn Kormallis and Sven Urmbrusk was interrupted last evening by a tragedy. A man was found murdered in the Captain's quarters aboard the massive Fortaleza de Soledad. The details are sketchy as the Watch is very tight lipped regarding the murder, but neither family is very happy with the disruption of the festivities. The four hundred plus attendees were all held and questioned indepth until the early hours of the morning.

A Civilar is quoted as saying, "Looks like the Tome Raider murderer has struck again. The corpses are really starting to pile up."

Word begins to circle of a woman running around the town at times often being chased by creatures. There have been casualties, and it is said that when the situations resolve the woman and creatures have been known to disappear. It is mostly belived by the watch to be a myth used to cover up sloppy violence in the city. It seems some of the city's residents believe they know more details.

Last night there was an uproar on the docks as a thick fog rolled in, and in the quick deadly silence passed leaving three dead ship captains. Two belonging to the house Adarbrent, and one seeming to be a private vessel. Chaos broke out as rival companies blamed each other, and just a bit more blood, yet no more casualties, spread. The watch and detectives were quickly on the scene.

A separate uproar caused by the newest known house member of Adarbrent..a moon elf?! How in the hells is it that a nonhuman noble of the Mariner house has come about? Giving no response to anyone of the matter she showed her interest and quick action coming on to the docks with a set of house guard and insisting on her own investigation. She had a small conversation with a few witnesses making them a personal offer on the matter, and was off before she could be further harassed.

A woman in black leather sporting axes, as well as a tall ugly figure with an ax of his own were rumored to have been compensated by the watch for their witnessing.

Late the night before, small drow attacks were made in a few city locals. Most were dispatched, or the damage was done before anyone ever knew. So it's being said. Most notably was a rather longer battle in the hero's garden. A group of females were attacked by one of their ranks of assassin and archer each. They were dispatched of. In other areas of the city some fell dead after eating the food of some establishments, and a few wells are under quarantine as the water has proven fatal to ingestion officials, and clergy in the areas assure that the problems will be fixed, and the cities defenses reinforced from the inside.

A man was slain by an unseen assailant within a busy tavern in the Docks. It was not until the body was examined that the murder was linked to a string of others more than a moon ago. Anyone who actually was present at the Unnamed Tavern is asked to come forward if they saw anything.

Deathly Deep Denizen Harries Harbor!

Rumors are spreading from the Docks ward, of a vicious creature devouring those unwary unfortunates near the waters edge. The creature was described as enormous, fat, white as death with a gaping red maw and black inky eyes. Tales tell of it rising right up out of the water, swimming through the air as a fish through water!

The repetition and conviction of these rumors increase in direct correlation to the water's edge. The watch is rumored to have taken the creature's last victim off under covers. The previously stated warnings of heeding the heavy evening fogs of late in the lower wards has been repeated and emphasized, and torch carrier watch patrols increased.

((Gather Info checks to Hedges, but rumors are currently ambiguous and conflicting))

Over the last tenday since Kasim's group returned from Undermountain, there have been four other groups who visited the enormous dungeon in search of fame and fortune.

None have returned.

The fourth group, judging by the sounds of battle that traveled up the well, had not even manage to leave the winch room. Halfway into the battle, the bartender ordered the rope to the winch cut to ensure no further damage was done to the tavern. The rope was replaced later in the day, but nobody else has ventured down since.

Just before dawn this morning, the Watch in the Plinth area found a human male, beaten badly, bloodied and obviously having just been put through some kind of physical fight for his life. He was wrapped and tied, then sewn into his cloak and while, not dead, it was obvious he'd been through the mill.

His name is: Malior Telrath. A waterdeep local brawler known for his boasts of being able to take on just about anything including dragons and win. Rumor has it, he was taken to the temple of Ilmater for healing.

((If you want to know more... hit me up.))
