Suspicious Discussions
More than a few farmers and locals in the outskirts of Baldur's Gate have expressed sudden interest in magic. Several even going so far as to enquire with local adventurers and the church of Mystra about it. Strangely though, many have expressed a recent change of heart about how important magical skill should be to those in charge.

A handful of locals have even been in touch with resident Thayans, curious about how well their nation's system works. Likely much to the Thayan's surprise and annoyance.

*The Council of Four releases a public proclamation on the upcoming Duchal Court.*

The Grand Dukes of Baldur's Gate announce that in addition to the formal speaking and non-speaking delegates to the upcoming Duchal Court as is normal, the wider public, as long as they are legally in good standing with the city, will be allowed to observe the court as audience members only. Any disrespect shown to the court, however, will be treated harshly. Thereby, all such allowed members of the public are invited to the Duchal Court, as non-speaking audience members only, when it takes place on the 5th of Nightal nine hours after mid-day.

((Publicly observable Duchal Court event at the Duchal Palace in Baldur's Gate on Saturday, December 5 21:00 GMT.))

Growing Discussions
A small crowd was seen gathering about the Thayan embassy intent on overwhelming those within with questions about Thay, working there and various other unusual enquiries. Traffic became so thick at the embassy that they shut their doors for the day just to get some quiet. The crowd continued to gossip and bicker for several hours outside as new onlookers joined in to replace those giving up.

Some other things probably happened too but they likely weren't that important.

A commotion caught the attention of the northern watch stations of the city. Those near the walls and in the farmlands reported hearing terrific crashes of magical energy and localized raging storms.

After the 'event', a crowd descended upon a scene of destruction. Trees had been toppled and some even split in half from the energies unleashed. Some adventurers attempted to investigate, but no public report was given as of yet.

Lieutenant Nails was observed arriving on the scene in full armor and escorting a group back to the city after watching the crowd mill around for a time.

A storm would push in from sea and begin to unleash over the city but the worst of it was felt in the eastern farmlands.
A deluge of rain would fall from the sky that would eventually turn into a hail the size of walnuts and only grew bigger.
Guards would tell everyone to stay indoors to get away from it, sadly many civilian and adventurers alike were injured.
Crops destroyed animals killed...How this would affect the food production and day to day of Baldur's gate is yet to be seen.

A few evenings ago explosions and sounds of fighting could be heard coming from the Darius estate before a Balor burst out of there front doors taking to the
sky's leaving the estate in relative ruins, all save for the famed pillow room.
Rumors have it that that many people were injured in the event that had to do with the supposed shards found from the portals that have been popping
up all over the place.
People would notice the increase of Fist soldiers around the city in response to this and an investigation is said to be underway.

Rumour in the farmlands is a tiefling, and a woman who appeared to be a paladin, came across an ill man in the Southern Farmlands, and when approached, mentioned something about bad meat before collapsing and dying, his corpse transforming itself into a twitching pile of living flesh which lashed out and attacked those nearby. It was vanquished quickly, and the body was burned.
