Orders in hand the Radiant Scout edited the Charter House, a satchel of supplies and two quivers full of arrows. He nodded to the Man at Arms as he swung open the heavy wooden and iron reinforced gates. That usual cocky smirk on his lips as he waved and removed his signature bycrocket cap, slipping it between his sword belt and tunic. He then pulled the hood over his now short hair. And pulled it low so only the ends of his signature forked beard poked out.

He paused to look over the farmlands and it’s usually busy roadside fireplace. Then to all but the most keen of eyes the Scout would just disappear.

An elven druid in a blue breastplate passes by the Fist fort next to the Friendly Arm Inn, takes the time to read a note posted there carefully, smiles, then continues on his way to Candlekeep.

As if called back by the afront to the wilds. Sarisay Meynar had been seen gathering information on the sighting of her lord and the transgressions against the land. Seemingly at the same time a masked wild woman was spotted leaving ill warning of further wrath and keeping ominous vigil at the fort.

The masked wildwoman is seen leaving scrolls, wrapped in vines and sealed with a stamp of oak and acorn. She seems to take little care in hiding her actions, having been sighted walking past the fire in the farmlands and dropping a scroll in front of multiple witnesses.

Those that visit the Shrine to Silvanus, right on the side of the Trade Way, could maybe see the druids that were even more often visiting it. Something had happened, and prayer to the Oakfather was high. Maybe some might've seen an auburn-haired druidess covered by a hood with wooden antlers praying at the Shrine for hours. Her expression somber, she'd wave off any who'd speak to her.

It was also clear that druid activity was specially high around the Cloakwood, the Friendly Arm Inn seeing much of it, as the nature folk were often seen observing the Flaming Fist camp from afar. Though the camp was dismantling, and there was talk of selling the wood acquired from the deforestation of the Cloakwood, those who'd speak with the druids would often encounter ominous comments regarding the encampment. Tensions are clearly high.

"This was written before time began…"

Hushed in the moondark of Uktar, two silhouettes walk towards the grave of Mercy's Children. Whispers scattered by the wind speak of prayers and cruelty, of hope and echoes. The devout kneels while the knight stands, and the quiet contemplation of the children seems to follow the respect for the dead.

Unweavering in the task, she leaves a crown of braided angelicas to rest upon Ser William "Billy" Williams grave. But the sibling unforgotten is cherished too. A motherly care offered to the girl, while the boy is met with the reverence Knights inspire. The devout seems to take much time in consecrative prayer, communing with the Holy Grave, lighting candles to let the flame die in the night. The preparation accomplished, and united in endeavors, and quietly praying, the knight and the devout do seem to share a moment of devotion. The Children of Mercy honored, they do leave only with sunset, when the moon dies in the scarlet painting of dawn.

Warnings on vine-wrapped parchment, bearing a wax seal of oak and acorn continue to litter the countryside. Spottings of woodland spirits have been turning up; Ghost bears and wolves, all still and eriely watching the fort from the minimum distance that does not provoke. The warnings have been issued, instructions on repairs have been made. Now the forest watches. . . But for how long?

A masked wildwoman is seen dropping the parchments. In fact, she does not seem to be hiding what she is doing at all. Her mask is odd in that it has no eye holes. The mouth is shaped much like the masks of colliseum actors. No one has heard her speak yet, as no one has bothered to approach the ominous figure. She is seen most often at the shrine of Silvanus or in silent vigil, watching the fort among the spirits that also prowl there.

A man clad in mithral approaches the wooden fort at the Friendly Arm Inn with a wooden mug in hand. Tossing it to the ground and shattering it with a stomp. Burying it in full view of the forts entrance making himself known to all that pass.
