Upon a single word of command all the notes suddenly burn away leaving no sign of their existence behind, also not leaving any trace on their surroundings.

Soon rumors would spread of a singular hero having killed the elder brain enabling the wizard to do his research while earning a true fortune doing so.

Rumours spread of a certain member of the School of Necromancy having been promoted. K'yon Oblodra has been seen walking through the City and its surroundings in an unusually good mood, smiling and less humiliating to others than usually.

Rumours have it that a certain Necromancer is looking for hirelings for certain crude errands.

Rumours spread of a strangely subservient drow moving through the streets very suspiciously by trying to be just the opposite.

More and more disfigured corpses are being found around Sshamath and Mistlake. Closer inspection would show that each and every single one was drained of all their life force.

Creatures range from heretical drow, spiders, mouthers and carrion crawlers.

(I think some of those would actually be near Kro's Descent... Which is much more interesting to, ehm, certain bored individuals... :twisted:)

After a while, a dark, hooded figure might be observed at Undrek Vallanar, making inquiries about the origin of the corpses upstream. However, if she has been examining the corpses themselves, she has so far remained unseen while doing so.

Yet another rumour spreads, apparently a dead drow has been found in the Nauklar.

With the death occurring in the outpost and involving a Drow, one of the House Selmiyeritar Shadows turns up and begins investigating. If the corpse was of any concern to the garrison, bribes would be offered to examine the corpse.

The Shadow would then speak with both the Conclave guards, the Dev'lins and any Tunnelrunners or Blackrockers about unusual activity or notifications sent to Sshamath's Necromancers whose purview this would fall under.

Shortly after concluding contact with various groups, the Shadow up and leaves, vanishing with practiced ease into the labyrinthine tunnel network of the Underdark.

A multitude of fliers have been posted out and around S'shamath and Mistlake by a hooded figure, they all read as follows:
Let it be known that an Illithid was sighted in Varalla's passage close to the entrance portal of S'shamath, scouting the S'shamath Conclaves forces!

It is also known that K'yon Oblodra Silent Seat Necromancer of the School of Necromancy of S'shamath was seen killing and mutiliating their armies! He provoked a nest of Illithids without consent from the conclave of S'shamath!

Is S'shamath ready to face an open invasion against an army of mindflayers and floating brains!? Let K'yon Oblodra face punishment for his actions formally in front of the Council of S'shamath! For this affects all drow, merchants, and germ-bags of S'shamath!

Rumours spread of a moon dog roaming the tunnels, with its long muscular appendages it reaches an enormous pace, apparently passing through vast amounts of tunnels surrounding "the City" in a circling manner. Some voices are raised, they believe to have seen the Necromancer K'yon Oblodra himself to have turned into this very creature, reasons are not given, though rarely the mob needed such to believe the whispered word.

Further though unrelated a strong showing of troops of the School of Necromancy could be observed in and around the large Crypt near S'shamath, culling the undead that seemed to be present in overabundance. As more and more reports of those traveling surface in bars and (germbag) houses.

It seems the Underdark is bursting with activities, those real and those that might very well just be figments of imagination as there had always been in a city drenched in as much magic as such as the City of Dark Weavings.

Citizens of S'shamath were able to watch an uneven fight this cycle, the Necromancer, Silent Seat and for a period also commander of the sixth defense battalion of the School of Necromancy, engaged a drowess of Qu'ellar Selmiyeritar in combat, some recognised her as Myrshalee, after accusing her of having spied on him. The fight took place in Varalla's Passage not far from the city's entrance.

Despite her dextrous attempts to stab the mage from the safety of the shadows, people passing by could observe her suddenly being struck by a spell leaving her utterly helpless, the Necromancer then went on to gruesomely draining all life out of the helpless drowess with a series of surely necromantic spells.

A summoned vampire carried the slain through the bazaar, not more but a shrivelled husk remained. The Necromancer failed not to remind the people not to cross him unless they wished to share this example's faith.

The body later was seen being dumped into the sewers for the rats and slimes to feast upon.

The heart of Sshamath has for, many years, been its Schools of Magic. To a lesser extent, those Houses of significant standing also enjoyed a say in the political direction, but the lifeblood of the city unquestioned flowed through the Dark Weavings Bazaar. Hundreds of tents and small shops can be found setup amongst the many giant stalagmites; a place where visitors could buy almost everything for the right price.

The Weavings is a constant tangle of merchants hawking their living or magical wares. Many are independents, but others band together into Houses or Guilds to better strengthen their positions. As with all things concerning Drow, fierce competition was rife amongst those who plied their trade here. Gossip and exchange of information flows freely between the avaricious Merchants, and the latest news concerns the meetings taking place between Agents of Houses Moolhyan and Selmiyeritar.

The potential for a shift in the flow of gold was first noticed when a large party of Selmiyeritar drow, led by the scar-faced Fang, met with an established 'fixer' of the Weavings known as Ell'fusei. After lengthy discussions, and an assembly of representatives from the ambitious and well-connected House Moolhyan, an accord was seemingly reached.

This cycle, space was appropriated in the Weavings and came under guard by the young House. Their role was clear: to ensure none attempted to subvert or sabotage the interests of their new partners, House Selmiyeritar. Silver and silk was purchased in bulk, loaded onto large, sturdy wagons, and eventually rolled out through Sshamath's portals into the Underways.

The convoy itself was always guarded by ten Drow mercenaries, and occasionally by more well-known Selmiyeritar retainers. Most of the former were armoured Drowess, but the company always seems supported by three mages who have the look of Necromancers and Illusionists.

Business it seems.. is booming.
