The Criers Guild, High Sung Notes of Red Glory, has been busy spreading news through the streets of Marinburgh.
The Green Mountain Guild has shared good spring tidings: the roads to Handorf are once again free of avalanche. Foot traffic can once again proceed to the southern lands. Messengers are travelling swiftly to bring delayed letters to their destinations.
Word out of Ancarnia is that unrest continues. Baroness Avril, of no particular house, has marshalled enough arms to take a large section of the countryside including the old capital of Vonitsa. Travellers are warned that she takes a dim view of visitors. In other Ancarnan news, House Evreux is reportedly beginning a migration to Marinburgh. This wealthy house is likely to cause much upset in the marble halls of the Red Duke’s palace.
As everyone will remember, the Countessa went into seclusion in late fall. The Royal Midwife is excited to announce that the Countessa is with child. The Red Duke’s heir is expected for early summer. Countessa Dashelle is expected to return to her public appearances. The ladies of the Mosaic of Summer guild have already begun preparations for a spring festival in honour of the Countessa and her child.
Captains from the Blue Sunset guild, returning from the far off Isles of Khem, report that a Khemreni Trade Fleet is building with intent to sail south to Marinburgh. Such a spectacle hasn’t been seen since before the fall of Louria, and it promises to be a once in a lifetime event.
House Baudissin is planning a joust, at their estate west of Port Neresheim
If one were inclined to such things, there is word that the arena beneath the Cathedral of the Saviour is once again hosting the Ruby Fist championships. No holds barred, no rules, and a very large pot of money to the winner — or should we say, survivor?
Rebuilding efforts are under way, in Low Town, following the riots and fires of last fall. The Silent Order of Safayah, however, are forbidding any work to one particular area near the harbour. Notable amongst the Silent Order, Father Isadore has finally recovered from the Night of Madness and has been seen in the streets once again. The Countessa’s Regent was severely injured during the riots, and remains reliant on a crutch.
As it is again Spring, citizens are warned that there are Hags about in the eastern fens. Travel with care.
