The Tradeway is abuzz for a time with rumor that the drow of House Lysaen have forged some sort of sinister deal with the magical-trinkets selling mind-flayer known as Yinax; a duergar's comatose form was provided to the creature, and it proceeded to suck its brain dry in broad sight of the entire Tradeway. Duergar and dwarven residents alike clutch at their axes grimly; few of them dare to approach Yinax in the coming cycles, nor do they seem in any great rush to make dealings with House Lysaen.

A corpse was found late during the cycle to the north of the city, close to the River Sargauth; a drow female, most whisper from the few who went to check. Fewer still dare to approach it, for fear of her assailants still lurking about... or concerned that the stink of failure and treachery about the body might bring such misfortunes to those who would pilfer it.

Word across the streets has it that Viktor, the merchant known for his widely varied assortment of goods, is holding an event in the Deep Fires next cycle: a combination of party and auction for those with the coin to afford his unique selection of valuable items. Price of admission will be 150 gold coin, and unless it is paid, one cannot bid on any of the auctioned items.

(The event is scheduled to begin at 5 pm EST, the auction to begin shortly thereafter.)

A corpse was found north of the city near the River Sargauth, appearing to be roughly two cycles dead.

The drow female had ashen skin stretching across her slender frame. Outlines of once toned muscles were clearly visible through her tight purple dress.

What once was a lithe, graceful figure now lay in a large pool of blood. Her head severed and missing in what appeared to be a hasty cut. Two other wounds appeared to be the fatal stroke: one directly down into her heart through her rib cage and another up through her abdomen to pierce her heart.

A circle of drying blood. An eight-pointed star. At the center, a dead duergar.

Again.

The blood was far too much to have come from a single dwarf. His dead kin littered the rooms and hallways of his bandit hideout.

Though battered and cut, he appeared to die from a single wound: a slow, deliberate push of blade from his abdomen into his still-beating heart.

Word around the Tradeway is a certain heavily-armored fire genasi has begun dealing in potent poisons and venoms, and is looking for customers to sell to.

Rumor has it that a woman in heavy metal armor, described as "looks exactly like Ysandra the Cage Champion" attempted to break into the Iron Ring Administration Building last night. She killed several Ring employees, including a records clerk and three guards, before being captured by the Xanathar. She is now in their custody. Neither the Promenade nor any of the other traditional enemies of the Iron Ring have claimed responsibility, and it is believed that the was acting alone.

Rumor spreads of a scuffle in the alleys of the tradeway. The Hateful Hin, Mardak, and some of his fellow Black-Bullets, stepped out of the alleyway virtually unscathed while a large, heavily armored fire gensasi required emergency medical attention for some serious bludgeoning wounds.

The hin has been running his mouth about the encounter, using it as an example of what happens when you fuck with the Black Bullet Cartel.

The city was abuzz with rumors after an incident occurred in the Tradeway Building: A clan from the city of Gracklstugh, Clan Stonecleaver, set up shop to sell some gems and jewelry they recently came into the fortune of mining. A disagreement with House Tanor'thal was spoken of, which culminated in the arrival of a recently ascended yath'abban that the city has come to the conclusion is named Umrae Tanor'thal. Following threats to the Duergar for not approaching them in their trade enterprises, Lady Umrae absconded with a fistful of jewelry of significant value, daring them to oppose her actions, before making off to House Tanor'thal.

According to some, House Lysaen members were seen speaking to the Duergar after the events.

Breshnal the Beast marches onto the docks of the Port of Shadows as unceremoniously as he left them. He no longer seems angry - but his intense, focused glare would make his wrath perhaps more preferable.
