For reasons known to only a few, the upper room of Sorcerous Sundries has been barred to the public on two recent occasions. Behind closed doors, the Weave has been tapped and utilized to very thorough effect, the sounds of incantation coming muffled through the door with an air of confidence and mostly calm professionalism. However, at the climax of the second occasion all magical effects in the immediate vicinity positively blinked out of existence after two powerful pulses of arcane spellwork were cast...

It might be noted in bubbling rumor that a quiet temple in the eastern district gives welcome entry to a battered elven woman shortly after she and her cautious escort touched their tread onto the cobbles within the Gate. Clergy within grant a cloistered room for recovery and desperately needed rest.

Some time later, the area nearby experiences a nuanced shift in atmosphere; eyes seen and unseen alike change their direction toward the temple and keep a silent, strict watch on the site.

The Flaming Fist compound is a hive of activity, taking deliveries of grain, weapons, and the supplies necessary for war. Yet, what is planned is kept strictly under wraps.

Ever so briefly, a few tendrils of curling smoke might have been noted seeping out from the upper windows of Sorcerous Sundries last evening. What seems to have been a minor conflagration was accompanied also by another instance of magical effects in the vicinity fizzling curiously out of existence, and the smell of charred wood and scorching alchemical compounds lingered subtly in the air for the better part of the night.

A massive winged beast is seen flying over Baldur's Gate. The dark black creature opened its maw letting out a shattering roar followed by a fireball that enveloped two houses in the East District. The buildings were quickly put out by a group of adventurers and Flaming Fist Officers. Residents in the buildings were rescued by a brave few who stood against the flames. Survivors were rushed to the Ilmater shrine where the priests and priestesses tended to their burns. The creature was quickly deterred from the skys by flashing spells streaming across the night sky from the Flaming Fist Battle Casters. By the time the ballista's fired the beast had taken flight away from the city. Observations of the creature described a dark black beast in the night. Few details could be made out in the night sky, while others swear it had hallow white eyes.

The Flaming Fist is mobile and on high alert through the city that night and the following days after.

An announcement from the Palace.

The new post of Admiral, defender of trade, Pirate pursuer, and warden of the Coastal approaches was announced as filled by one Admiral Yossan Yongfall, formerly of Amn, and a renowned Captain.

What makes this unexpected announcement unusual is currently he does not appear to have been allocated any ships or crews. Busy bards conclude the City has felt the need to satisfy traders that action against Pirates and the risk of Pirates to the City is being taken seriously.

One or two more bards the worse for free City ale added that it may be there is some possibility the Admiral may be in charge of an elite flying fleet. However the Admiral's credentials are more seaworthy than those pundits.

A late night a couple of days ago in the Harbor District of Baldurs Gate, a window was opened in a house near the waterside almost thirty barrels was then thrown out of the window this was quickly followed by a loud explosion from within the house. Several people was then seen dimensional door out of a window from said house. The House itself seemed to be in pristine condition, murmurs spread telling the story of how it was warded against fire, and had been used as a lap for creating explosives. Not much was done from the side of the Fist that night, it can only be assumed that the people that got out was working for the Fist and that their report took care of most of it. The next day the barrels of explosives would be gone and a patrol of City Guards was seen investigate the place.

Following the bloody messages written across Baldur's Gate the following previous evening. Flaming Fist presence can be seen at its full might. Battle Casters and bowmen can be seen at the height of every tower.

In the night following the strange writings, odd red orbs have been reported around the city. The float effortlessly and seem to cause no harm at all, but their presence is nevertheless unsettling.

Rumors begin to spin through the city that a supposed member of the Ebon Blade Mercenary Company - described as wearing black armor of high quality, despite many dents and scrapes, with unkempt dark hair tied back with a bloody rag, a scruffy beard, and a notable burn upon his neck who was openly wearing the symbol of Bane on his person - was seen forcibly kidnapping a man on Ducal ground. It is said that the captive was heard to be screaming that he knew the "truth about Morgan Blackrose." A public reaction of disgust arises from the news, and tongues begin to wag negatively in regards to the mercenary company as a result.

Citizens of Baldur's Gate would notice the presence of floating red orbs disappear in the night. By morning all of the orbs vanish. The streets are littered with what appears to be rose pedals. Upon closer inspection these pedals are dead red butterflies. Despite the last few nights of terror, the city of Baldur's Gate begins a sense of normalcy.

Duke Belt announces an upcoming festival to celebrate the recent victory over the immediate threats to the city. This festival will celebrate Bauldarun war heros and the victories of the past and present.
