Rumor has it that some hooded gnome, in all black, with shield and short sword, is stealing people's hard-earned loot, sneaking past them right to the chests, while they're fighting dungeon inhabitants.

Tarl Hollow was recently seen leaving the Tradeway in the company of a slave known as Thedos. Some time later, the heavily armored man returned, with his companion bloodied and unconscious. He dumped him in the Tradeway Garden, and left.

Many people in the Tradeway saw a certain bright and shining Paladin get on one knee and present the Bard, Scarlet Red, with a box. Surrounded by a group, and serenaded by another bard.

Rumours are coming out of the port that a Waterdhavian silk merchant named Daven Saltworth had his coinpurse snatched from him in the middle of the Black Tankard. By his description, the perpetrator was a Drow with white hair that had a coinpurse in her arms and looked like a disgusting little street-thing.

A lady dressed in purple, adorned in armor weaved in shades of dark and purple was seen arriving with a group of Calishite gypsies and spice merchants on a boat. Where ever she walked by, the darkness seemed to greet and cling on too her well. Soon words of sweet Salvation was whispered among the down trodden denizens of Skullport, with promises of sweet numbness and forgetting the pain and disappointment of life, a nourishing void that helps the poor and sick forget that their existence is pain, their stomach empty, or their throats parched with thirst was heard in hushed sermons and gospels, away from the prying eyes and ears of the denizens and more importantly the skulls.

A circle of blood. An eight-pointed star. A sacrifice to the Spider Queen.

Again.

This time in the entrance to the spider tunnels, a smear of blood leads to a nearby web, where a woman's body hangs.

Her desiccated corpse shows no obvious sign of struggle. She was already dead when placed there. Lolth's children are fat with their recent meal.

What killed the woman? It's hard to say. She has two glaring wounds: a gaping gash in her neck and a deep cut in her abdomen, some guts spilling out and adhering to the sticky web.

A grim rictus graces the woman's lips, a bloody smile as though a small victory was won even in her death.

The Iron Ring is dealing with a runaway slave situation. Mauric Jard is seen sending Iron Ring guards after her. "Stop the slave! Stop the slave!"

Rumor is, this escapee is the same person who caused such chaos a fortnight ago. The Xanathar might willing to offer a reward for information of capture of this slave.

Three slavers were seen leading a robed svirfneblin by a rope tied around it's neck across the Tradeway this cycle, headed from the direction of Taglath's pass towards Skull Island. Reports later came of several dead svirfneblin found in the tunnels, leading Skulkers to wonder what so many svirfneblin were doing in these parts to begin with.

Skulkers found the body of a lone female, her body deposited on a sewer grate in the Herald's Meet. She was branded a slave of the Iron Ring, and they say she had been seen asking around about her missing daughter before being found dead. With high reputation, they noted that the Champion, Ysandra, was seen examining the body with some companions, before those companions took and disposed of the body.

Scarlet Red was seen pinning a very plain notice to the notice-board. It had one word on it. "Vampires." With no context or explanation.
