Hassan the General?                May 03 2013   Anonymous
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Does the inexperienced young al-Malik intend to field his own men in battle? The army of Helborg awaits the arrival of the Voice of the Mountain in Rotdam. A steady supply of massive two ton shells for the Voice have been brought into the area. And his soldiers have begun work in Rotdam to prepare for the arrival of the huge gun. From Rotdam the Baron of Helborg can shell Rabaq directly. But given he has brought his army it seems that handsome al-Malik intends to march South to war.

Prodigal Hazat                     May 03 2013   Anonymous
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rumor has it that Don Rosario has returned alive! He was seen today in market in the company of Sir Sans and Baroness Desideria, fellow Hazat, and rumor has it he returned to the Lion Tower with Desideria, and from there to Port-Leon. What could be going on there?

Heroes Return to Fenford           May 04 2013   Anonymous
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The Iron Maiden, the flagship of Commodore Sofia Estefania Madalena Inez Guadalupe Eduardo Benignamin de Aragon, limped back into Fenford port today. Looking at her, the way her decks are twisted from an internal explosion and her masts snapped by the force of it, one might think... that she lost. 

But no, that is not the story to be told this day, not in Fenford and not in the trade lanes leading from it. No, the story being told is one of victory at impossible odds. A freak shot through the bow of the Iron Maiden brought the cat-1and-mouse naval chase to a halt, then a desperate and heroic boarding action led by the Commodore, Rosario and Sans of the Hazat and the Imperial Questing Knight Trisje V1an Gelder.

At seemingly impossible odds, they held off the Red Corsair of Tyche, Khalid Ashram Khalid al-Gesar, defending Fenford from his hungry raiders until the water-guard could muster in force. There is no doubting that these heroes will be fete'd in Fenford and beyond.

Sickness of the Soul               May 07 2013   Anonymous
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It cannot be a good omen when Akko's resident Inquisitor, Father Abbot Agravain van Gelder, makes an unnanounced visit. But no one was marched out in restraints from the Serai al Razul, home of Baroness Avenal, Chiaka Justinian, after the Inquisitor's visit. Instead, an Eskatonic priest with strange feathery hair who had accompanied Father Agravain was carried out by the servants, retching violenty and, according to witnesses, crying tears of blood. Some of the servants were later seen carrying baggage out of the house, while two Swords of Lextius took up stations guarding the Serai's gate.

Whatever is going on, the Church has apparently taken an interest in at least this one building in the Foregate.

Men who hold up the sky            May 08 2013   Anonymous
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The tale starts with a heavily guarded Amalthean transport leaving Akko, headed south into Cape Hattaras and Johburg's domain. Two Questing Knights, a Baroness and an Amalthean is a fairly heavy guard for medical relief supplies heading to a small coastal village. Soon after, there came reports from ships coming into Akko of smoke rising from the village in question. 

Shortly after, flitters with Imperial markings took off from Akko, headed into the area. When they return, they offload Sir Jerusalem Steele, Baroness Katerine De Moley, Sir Maximillian Hawkwood and Sister Naima of the Amaltheans along with a few dozen sick or dying villagers of Grotton's Landing. A fishing town of 200 souls now reduced to a handful that will be lesser by half due to radiation sickness. 

The town itself has been - by the order of Jerusalem Steele, burnt to the ground. Grottens Landing is a memory now, a memory that will fade with the scars in the landscape. There is rambling talk of Weevils, monsters and darkness from the dying, but even Jerusalem Steele does not seem interested in divulging details of this mission.

Helborg forces on alert in Rotdam  May 08 2013   Anonymous
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Barony of Helborg's (what is rumored to be his entire army) waits in Rotdam. The Voice of the Mountain is being unloaded and prepped. It is unclear if it shall start shelling Rabaq. The number of troops encamped though suggest it will be escorted to the invasion in the South.

Hunting Party                      May 09 2013   Anonymous
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Lady Olivia held a hunting party, it seems, for the Decados, her vassals, and some others of that set -- though little hunting was done. Instead, Lord Marco's clownish antics were the center of the party, along with a copious amount of drinking, which seemed to leave Lady Chiaka sullen, Lord Julien unconscious and Lady Lysandra holding her own in the give and take of repartee.
