They've been found, Mister Marks. One was well into his cups, but they both agreed to meet with you to discuss your plan.

A smile crept across his face. He had been hopeful, but there were always pangs of doubt lingering in the salty merchant's mind. He had left these two in the wind, after all, as he secured foreign trade. They could have easily abandoned him. Signed on elsewhere. Left for greener pastures. But they hadn't, and that pleased him more than a wide margin on a standing order. As he sipped from his cup and tipped the courier, another saying of his father's crossed his mind...

Recent rumors may include either of the following:

- Jackard has sent word through several couriers to Baldur's Gate, in an effort to reach out to one named 'Daigon'. It is though that Daigon is either a guard or mercenary of sorts and may already have ties to Rocky Creek, and may be being recalled for one reason or another.

- A wagon is being prepared and loaded in Greenest with luxury foodstuffs, fine wine, and an assortment of delectable delicacies from throughout the Sword Coast. The name 'Vanders' was mentioned, but it is unknown at this time where the wagon may be headed, or if it will leave at all.

- Wagons bearing the 'trout and coin' symbol of Rocky Creek could be witnessed venturing either to or from the fort at old Triel.

- More of Rocky Creek's retainers would be present in Greenest than usual the last few days, as if they are being recalled temporarily. The little over a dozen draymen, scouts, riders, and agents seem cheerful and upbeat. Perhaps it has something to do with the nearly complete construction of their warehouse and headquarters.

Those active in Greenest or paying attention to the company may note the following:

- Jackard may have been seen in meetings with a small handful of men over the last tenday in Greenest. Two of the few may stand out - an older man, wearing robes with the outward appearance of a mage of some years, and a younger man with the appearance of a well-traveled man of arms. The latter may have been witnessed leaving the inn wearing a jeweled brooch. It bore the symbol of Rocky Creek, a trout crossed a stack of coins.

- Not quite a public call to audition, agents of Rocky Creek seem to be making inquiries into musicians and their willingness to travel to Greenest to perform. A celebration of sorts is being tentatively planned, and options are being considered. ((((///If you play a musician and would like to have heard this rumor, feel free! Reach out IC by letter or in person, or via forums throgh RP or letter sent in PM.. whatever you'd like))))
