Baldur's Gate harbor sees a burst of chatter at the break of dawn, seemingly in regards to the sudden death of a long-time dock worker that most knew for his missing teeth and terrible smell.

Reported as a drowning, though found in his own bed, hushed whispers speak of Umberlee's displeasure and an influx of coin clinks into her coffers throughout the rest of the day.

The rumour is that Duke Eltan is due to hold a court session soon, and its said it will cover the rising devil threat.

(((This is an event for the Duchal Courtiers and is unfortunately not an open event. However rumour that such a meeting is taking place would be common knowledge hence the post here!

Also, if you are a courtier, or believe you should be, PM me for details)))

Word From the Front Lines

Image


Word arrives from the front lines against the forces of Hellsteel Tower to the north. Several Flaming Fist soldiers are carried back injured in carts and brought to the barracks where they are treated.



Image


Soldiers report the presence of massive trolls, devils, and scattered goblinoids, marching from a massive encampment of devils and their forces to the north-east of the line of forts.

The war efforts are tireless with several casualties and heavy assaults on each of the Flaming Fist Forts on the Winding Water, but word is the front line is holding.

General Scar's fort has come under the heaviest attack, but the additional soldiers provided by the Ebon Blade, Northern Watch, as well as the additional "vagrants" have fortified and allowed the Fist efforts to push forward against the line. Special mention to a tiefling convict known only as "The horned head crusher" who saved a Flaming Fist soldier from the maw of a devil. This soldier says he owes this tiefling his life.


Image


News of the threat has spread to the city itself and Duke Eltan has dispatched freshly formed companies of Flaming Fist, composed of City Watch volunteers and retired soldiers returning to the colours, as reinforcements. With them march the Flaming Fist's heavy cavalry contingent.

With a potential invasion, the Lords Alliance has sent word to several cities both neighboring and distant. The word has not fallen on deaf ears. In the coming days Baldur's Gate has welcomed in several soldiers under the Unicorn banner. These soldiers carry silver weapons and fine blue and white cloaks.

Those familiar with the eastern region would recognize these soldiers easily as Iriaebor soldiers.




((Please disregard the Necromancy trolls. Those were misplaced spawns. The area does not have any caster trolls))

Rumour is that three Knights of the Everwatch were arrested in the Baldur's Gate graveyard today for some reason or another. The Watchknights had seemed to comply, though the occasional loud commanding to "WALK" or "MARCH" by the arresting Flaming Fist Sergeant suggests that there may have been some arguing as they wandered to the Flaming Fist headquarters in the Docks District.

The three Watchknights were released again not long after and was seen exiting the Flaming Fist fort together with a black-clad man with a black, brimmed hat.

The harbour is bustling with news of three ships have arrived at Baldur’s Gate, sailing under Bandera of Neverwinter. As soon as they’ve arrived at piers, several numerous contingents of soldiers have left the ship decks, forward came a richly armoured soldier that had met with Captain Beluarion and a small group of Flaming Fist soldiers. The soldier, or Commander Vann as he introduced himself, is said to have publically proclaimed to have arrived here with three Companies of Neverwinter’s soldiers as a nod of the Lord’s Alliance to Baldur’s Gate in the growing efforts to put an end to the infernal invasion of Dragonspear Castle. The Commander has been invited to the Flaming Fist compound, while his soldiers station themselves around the Lord’s Alliance Headquarters and Flaming Fist Headquarters for the time being.

Apparently, another three companies have been stationed with Waterdhavian soldiers out near Daggerford- the northern frontline of Dragonspear War.

Word would spread among the harbor and other parts of the city that the Siren's Song is offering free drinks to Fist, due to their involvement in the ongoing war and the ship's support of the city's troops.

Rumor might also spread of the Captain of the Siren's Song, Fenix Wandersoul, wanting to get more involved with the front lines, although how he intends to do so is drawn into question.
As the news spreads of free drinks, off duty Flaming Fist are seen more and more often in the Siren's Song; its becoming a popular haunt for them due to free drinks!

It certainly keeps any potentially lairy patrons in line.

More news spread amongst the public of Baldur’s Gate as, out of nowhere, a group of human and elven wizards bearing emblems of Silverymoon have appeared out in the northern farmlands of Baldur’s Gate. Soon after, they together have opened something that appeared like a magical gate from which came several contingents of dwarven and human mixed with half-elven soldiers- led by a silver-haired woman carrying a staff fashioned into a head of a unicorn.

These soldiers (Several hundreds of them), grouped in separate companies, have in turn been met with a Flaming Fist. After sharing some words with the silver-haired woman and commanders of the foreign soldiers, the Flaming Fist returned back to the city, followed by the woman under intense guard of her own retinue of mages and knights, while the soldiers set up a camp for themselves in the northern reaches of Farmlands. Some may recognise the insignias of soldiers as hailing from Mirabar, Citadel Adbar, Sundabar and Silverymoon.

Recent reports from the frontlines has indicated a former Red Wizard by the name of Kahanak has been witnessed using ancient and powerful necromancy spell. The spell in question strips the life of everything around the arcanist before summoning a massive undead-like creature. Citizens should be on the lookout for a bald man with a round nose and head tattoos. It is possible he has grown hair since then. Kahanak is wanted by General Scar for questioning and forbidden to enter Duke land until the investigation is completed.


Secretary Marigold Isengale

Upon completion of the investigation, Kahanak is set free from the Flaming Fist Compound.
