Rumors

Postby Rhicora Thu Aug 17, 2017 1:27 am

Whether by the loosened lips of a sailor, or from the silver tongue of a merchant prince, rumors always seem to fly at Skullport's taverns. It's hard to find reliable news in the Port of Shadows, and so the talk to the town passes for it. For the price of a pint of ale, you can learn of the latest happenings, bargains, and intrigue. Johan does his part to pass on whatever he hears, though he does not go so far as to present it as fact.

Anyone can post here! Try to keep guild recruitment out of Rumors. Offering an interesting quest in hopes of finding guild members is fine.

For those that walked past the outskirts of town, into the nearby tunnels, the shallow grave that was briefly there seems to have been desecrated.
Dirt from the ground is now scattered all around, and if one was to dig, only a simple, unenchanted and rusty sickle can be found there.
The pitiful headstone that lacked anything but the name of the supposedly deceased now reads:
"Culras LIVES"
the last part written in blood and capitalized, obviously in a rather dramatic attempt to draw attention to it.

The Blood Brawl of 20th Elesias

Postby TheSpaniard Sat Aug 19, 2017 4:15 am

Despite certain rumors of infighting between former business associates, the fights on 20 Elesias are on, anticipation mounts as eager Skulkers wait to again satiate their voyeuristic blood lust at the Thrown Gauntlet. ///Fight Event Sunday at 2pm Central Time, write down all bets and keep record of them IC and OOCly////

Cover charge will be one hundred and fifty gold pieces a person, bets are being held by Balin, up until the moment of the fights:


Undercard preliminaries

  • First match:
"Kelithra'zek the Killer Vs. The Hateful Hin!"


  • Second match:
"The Stranger vs Rolmus the Carver!"

Title Match


  • Championship
"Ysandra the Champion Vs. Gurick the Idiot!"

The fights will be non-lethal, we will provide blunted weapons, but besides that it will be no holds barred. Drinks will be provided and service will be held at Gills's bar at the back of the Gauntlet. Security, medical treatment, and doormen will be handled by Balin's Promotion Company.

Ysandra has successfully managed to defend her title as Cage Champion at the Thrown Gauntlet after narrowly defeating the half-orc brute known as Gurrick. However, rumors about Ysandra's seemingly weakening momentum are starting to spread: tales are told and then re-told about how she barely managed to withstand Gurrick's terrifying blows, a fact which has left many a skulker left wondering.. how long will the scarred half-breed manage to remain at the top of the food-chain?

The warrior Erwick Brightmantle, was last seen aboard a ship sailing outside of Skullport. It is said that the man was tired of fighting alongside the twisted denizes of the city, and with his improved skills in battle, he may have decided to put himself to better use, in a place where the locals are more deserving of his assistance.

A strange sight can be seen near the caverns where the spiders and their brood gather: Beneath the rope path and across the small rock bridge, stands a fetish of broken spider limbs, stuck together with nails, rope and a fair bit of wood. It looks to be a broken effigy of Lloth's image, dripping with the blood of her spider companions. Clearly, it is an attempt at mocking the faith and its people.

A group of drow were seen in the courtyard of the trade way talking in the true tongue. The anger of the priestess was evident, a male refusing to do her bidding knelt before her. Her anger built and she struck him with the back of her gauntleted fist, handing the bloody armor to her jaluk for cleaning.

The recalcitrant man finally relented, licking the bottoms of the boot of another female in apparent disgust.

He left in the company of a third female, presumably for retraining.

the rumors state that one male tiefling purchased two slaves, one female and one male. they also state that the male slave that was purchased was granted his freedom as the tefling states "can't break him in"

They would also state that the two that where bought are recruits for the Iron Boars

Rumor has it that the recently founded Sorcere of Skullport has struck a pact with the Iron Boars mercenary guild. What this means exactly for the residents of Skullport yet remains a mystery, however.

Tensions regarding the use of undead rose to a boil in the Tradeway today.

Some rant of a skeletal blackguard, eyes burning with hatred for life, utterly escaping the control of a snivelling, screaming necromancer, gutting a poor young lady and revelling in her blood, then directing its rampage onto the nearby merchants and barflies. Thankfully, the salt-of-the-earth of the Tradeway banded together against the berserk abomination, subduing it before it could do further damage.

Others roll their eyes at the topic of some idiotic young girl clearly attempting to sabotage a perfectly functional undead because of her silly, surface-born opposition to perfectly usable labour, and that it'd have been better if she had been killed to spare Skullport her stupid moral crusade. Perhaps then her bones could have been put to some actual use, rather than engaging in pointless sabotage.

The only thing the two sides agree on, is that it was a grace that the disruption was not sufficient to attract the attention of the Skulls.
