Many About the city see a large contingent of from the School of Necromancy leave the city and make their way to the battle field outside of House Zau'afin lead by Nym the Necromancer. They seem to be gone for quite some time.

Rumours would spread that a warparty had assaulted the Illithid hive, and taken several of their slaves, most of them being Deep gnomes, to the varallas passage. They then had the slaves taken off the hands of the warparty to be excorted by Zau'afin guards to the Zau'afin gates.

A mysterious clan of Duergar dwarves arrived in Sshamath today, draped in enough wards to fight a war and in the dust and weariness of long travel. They stopped at the tavern for a few drinks, keeping mostly to themselves and looking somewhat awkwardly out of place. After a short conversation with a couple of local Drow (to whom they identified themselves as the 'Krinkrak' clan), they departed as quickly as they came, their destination unknown.

This cycle, Gloura's patrons were treated to an impromptu song played by a drowess that would be discribed as having long silvery hair, silver under-eye eyeliner and revealing clothing.

The three jalilen were drinking at the bar when the velg'larn drow of the group mentioned that the drow in the city only have two paths they can take, do someone else's job for coin or subservience to a Qu'ellar and the faernen of the Conclave. After a few more exchanged words about a possible third path, the drowess to her right offered to play a song that might give the velg'larn some inspiration. She got up from her seat, grabbed her lute and began strumming a melody.


I see thee better in the Dark
And no, you need not a light...

Dark velg'larn... she lives in the dark

Dark velg'larn so filled with strife
Dark Dark velg'larn she'll take your life
Dark velg'larn stay for a while
Dark Dark velg'larn she makes me smile
Dark velg'larn she shows no fear

Dark Dark velg'larn is always near
Dark velg'larn wont see her cry
Dark Dark velg'larn just wants to die

But Dark velg'larn lives in the dark
so you dont see her painfull mark

Dark Dark velg'larn may never know
the third path that curiosity could show.

Whispers move through The City rather swiftly as a single cart caravan enters the region supported by heavily armed s'lat'halin m'elzars. If it were headed to the city domain, it is speculated that it would arrive in less than 3 cycles.

Last cycle, amid the bustle of the City of Dark Weavings' bazzar, a pair of Drow, one female with silvery hair and silver under-eye eyeliner and her companion a hooded male in black clothing, could be seen purchasing a large amount of travel provisions and supplies, enough to feed dozens. After paying the merchant the agreed price the both of them would make a couple of trips back and forth carrying the boxes to a safe location.

Several drow were amazed 2 cycles ago by the presence of an undead wyvern on the Undrek Vallanar with a rider clad in black armor, though no one knows exactly what they were doing there, because even after being pressed by questions the answers they gave just led everyone into a brick wall, with the promise of steel to anyone who asks too much.

This cycle, a drow makes her way to the 7th Circle in the bazaar and attempts to find someone to leave a message that she wishes to schedule an appointment with a representative of the 7th Circle. She let's them know that any correspondence for her can be left to "Vieice" at Gloura's and adds that she is interested in hiring their services.

These last few cycles, a large shipment composed of ten boxes total made its way out of the Duergar Darkspires of Sshamath. The order was transported away by agents of the heavily militarized mercantile group known as the 7th Circle.

A snickering, masked woman writes a notice on the bulletin.

"There's a war breaking out in the Reaching Woods, and it's at the Shrine of Eldath of all places . . . Be warned, anyone who might find themselves at the shrine on the 20th of Flamerule through the 22nd may find themselves at the war to end all wars, the Pun War.

Join us for this waterfall opportunity to test your wordplay against others. This is truly a golden opportunity with much at stake."

((For OOC information, it'll run on the 20-22 of Flamerule (July 20-22) for those three days.

There is much activity at S'shamath, drow quietly come in and out of the Gloura's wings, the Spider Kiss, into and out of the portals and towards the tunnels and the Darkwood, all this happening under the eternal mantle of darkness that the Underdark offers.

Rumours of blood flowing permeate the silence, but no useful details are revealed in the open, as always, after all, this is the way of the drow and the spiders.

A lone male sits at the Gloura's making all sorts of conversations, big and small talk, with anyone that comes across him. Remaining before anyone arrives and after they all left.

Word is posted Master of Intrigue Ashyri is looking for an assistant. The job requires leather work, and the ability to hold their own. A large sum of thirty bags is offered for this contract. Those qualified may visit Bregan Dearthe for more information.
