ELF ADMITS SUCCUBUS ATTACKS

Notorious Coin Lord Agents: 'The Fellowship' Attempt Cover-up

With reports of missing persons beginning to pile up, the rumor mills of Stormreach taverns have been at full spin as many citizens look for answers. While we have all heard tall tales, from new, stronger kobolds to vampires, a prevalent rumor seems to keep surfacing of a succubus making the rounds of Stormreach's darker alleyways.

As expected, the city guard refuses to make any official statements as they hope in vain that citizens with short attention spawns will forget the deaths of our lost friends. However a source close to the investigation, only able to speak under the protection of anonymity for fear of reprisal, has been able to confirm an unknown number of deceased individuals have been discovered without any signs of physical trauma. Forensic authorities are unable to rule out the possibility of a succubus attack draining them of their life force.

Following the rumor trail has led this intrepid reporter to The Phoenix Tavern, well known as a hub for adventurers and most notably known as the favored watering hole of the Coin Lords' notorious agents, The Fellowship of the Golden Night. Positioned in the secluded rear loft, drinking with a known Fellowship agent, I questioned an elven wizard called Ondranar Palerose.

As he was one of many elven wizards known to frequent the tavern, observers had noticed the wizard's absence for the last few weeks, including during the string of murders. He reappeared in the tavern once more in a notably upbeat mood. Jackson Laws, a regular face in the tavern who coordinates duels amongst adventurers, observed the change: “He had been rather sullen and moody before he left. Then he comes back again, mincing about and rather happy. Somethin' lifted his spirits lately.”

Mr. Palerose agreed to an interview, admitting that he was indeed a “friend” of the fellowship, whose agents are most recently known for the debacle of accusing a mother of kidnapping her own child. While the elf did his best to show a humble facade, as soon as the subject of the succubus was broached the interviewee quickly turned hostile, attempting to cast a Charm Person spell upon this reporter.

Thankfully due to the dangerous threats posed by this profession, this reporter was prepared for such a threat, protected against all mind manipulation by an enchanted necklace. Mr Palerose's spell had no effect. Mr Palerose than admitted openly that he had “Not summoned her, but (he) did attract her to the city.” At which point, the elf's entourage, undoubtedly Fellowship muscle, intervened, preventing the interview from proceeding further.

When it became evident that this reporter had indeed begun to find the beginnings of the truth – this succubus, while not summoned by magical means, had indeed been brought upon our innocent city by the lonely wizard – he attempted to press his point, only to be nearly assaulted by the thugs. It is apparent that the Coin Lord agents are doing all in their power to cover up this incident.

Further evidence has proven their attempt at a cover up, as this reporter was followed to his office that evening by a Fellowship agent. Fearing for his safety upon hearing their attempts to break in, this reporter was forced to take precautionary efforts and evacuate through magical means to a safe house while the agent ransacked his office.

After confiscating this reporter's notes and an early draft of this very article, the agent also left behind a note, advising against the publication of this article. The note also attempted to offer bribery and hoped to throw this reporter off course with another story of interest. To the agent who invaded my personal office, I give you this message: No amount of gold or coffee, no matter how good, will prevent me from bringing forth the truth for the people of Stormreach.

It is still unclear if this succubus had been brought to the city as a tool to be used by the Coin Lords' agents, or if they were just attempt to cover up a wizard's misguided lone actions. Further investigation is pending. However, with reports of murders ceasing, it appears, at least for now, that the Fellowship have gotten their succubus under control.

ATTACK ON CHRONICLE REPORTER SHOCKS HARBOR

At 2:30 AM on the 22nd of Eyre the body of Godwick Spurge, an established and admired Chronicle Reporter, was discovered in the Stormreach Harbor in close vicinity to the Wayward Lobster by a local merchant. The body was found recently murdered with clear signs of electrocution, including scorched hand prints on the victim's neck. Investigators from the city watch confirmed that victim was killed using electricity of magical origin.

Sarisha Sarai, one of the first Stormreach citizens on the scene, expresses the impact to the community: “I can’t believe this happened! The docks had been pretty safe lately, with the guards and the Silver Flame hanging around. I am afraid to go out at night now without at least a friend around.”

The scene of the crime is unusually suspicious due to the lack of witnesses, as the locale is often well traversed, even at the dead of night. As Harbormaster Zin explains, “Stormreach is a busy port. We have to keep ships coming in and out at all hours. I can’t believe nobody saw what happened, really, from the sailors going in and out of the tavern to the dock workers, but nobody saw anything. Or if they did, they are too afraid to come forward.”

According to the city watch, there are currently very few clues to go on. Sergeant Qint of the city watch explains, “All we got is a handprint that could fit a human, elf, or half-elf. Really not a lot to go on, and a magic user too. Unless we know somebody with a grudge against your reporter boy, we ain’t got any leads.”

Godwick Spurge’s body was brought to House Jorasco healers, who were able to resurrect him. Unfortunately, the victim could not shed any further details of his attacker. Godwick Spurge is currently recovering from the attack under the protection of the city guard and House Jorasco healers. Any information regarding this case should be brought to the attention of Sergeant Qint of the city guard or can be given to any Chronicle Crier. A reward of 10,000 gold has been offered for information leading to the arrest of the murderer.

-Hector Hyssop, Chronicle, Stormreach.



Connecting the Dots: Chronicle Under Fire!

It is clear we at the Chronicle have told a story that somebody does not want you to read. We of course have received a never-ending supply of threats and bullying from The Coin Lords of Stormreach, yet none had ever taken such drastic action as what has happened to our dear friend Godwick Spurge. While thankfully House Jorasco healers were able to return the young halfling’s soul to his body before it was forever taken to the next life, the act committed against one of our beloved free agents was murder all the same, in cold blood.

While the City Watch has no choice but to investigate, as the act was done so openly and publicly, one still wonders if the city watch that can only effectively chase its own tail is capable of looking to their employers for answers. Recent publishings regarding the fiascos caused by The Coin Lord agents known as The Fellowship of the Golden Night has brought forth a string of even more outrageous threats against this reporter, his editor, and even against the brave souls who operate our printing presses. It is easy to connect the dots: they view us as a threat to the status quo of the Coin Lords milking this city dry and The Fellowship of the Golden Night reaping the rewards.

Rumors have already circulated that many of their members and associates have spoken openly about shutting down our fair paper, calling us worthless rags, and some even threatening me personally with bodily harm. Further The Fellowship is known to have many magical users within their ranks, more than capable of using lightning magic to kill somebody, as well as placing magical enchantments around the victim to ensure nobody sees the act. There are even known associates of The Fellowship that can easily polymorph into a size and shape of their choosing, allowing them to perform any heinous act with few repercussions, just as the changelings did in The Last War.

I could easily name half a dozen members of The Fellowship who could have easily performed the act upon our dear friend last night, but one who comes immediately to mind is our recent associate, the Succubus Lover Ondranar Palerose. A few members of his magical entourage are also equally skilled with spell casting. No information about their whereabouts on the last evening are readily available, and it is highly unlikely The Watch will properly investigate them as suspects, but one wonders if The Watch would even investigate the origin of their dinner properly.

Rumors on the street already talk of one of Mister Palerose’s friends, known as Terry, who can easily change shapes, and openly talked of bringing bodily harm to myself personally for my last article. The half-elf might even have missed his target, seeing as both Godwick and I have similar appearances, or the murderer might have simply been trying to send a message. All the same, we at the Chronicle will do all we can to spread the truth in this corrupt city to all that we can, no matter what violence is threatened against us.

*A letter addressed to Capsaw of the free agents and the Chronicle.*


Dearest friend Capsaw,

Your recent articles, in your most beloved newspaper, have placed a great deal of burden and sadness upon me.
You know better then to falsely accuse my guild of such wrong doings.
 You know the strong connections that the Fellowship holds in this city. Not only to the Storm lords and the Dragonmarked houses, but to your own free agents as well.
We do not suck the city dry or laze about like fat house cats as these articles may think. We do good work here and we do what we can for the betterment of this city and it's citizens. You know exactly what I am referring too and the sacrifices I have personally made.

We've been good friends these past six years and I still remember  how much enjoyment I took in performing for your daughters 8th birthday during my days of being a free agent performer. Admittedly, no matter my current station(s), I do miss those days greatly, my friend, and I despair to see such fond memories smeared by current events  and rumors.

Please take control of your paper and get your affairs in order. Your people can write better news and do so much better good then this.


Please send Cassy my will wishes and my love to Mrs. Capsaw.

Regards,

Lilium Petal
~Acting Guild Leader of the Fellowship of the Golden Night
~Black Seal representative of House Phiarlan

Ps. I am available 9 - 3 Mol to Far should you wish to speak with me in person or for interview. Please provide at least one days notice along with a time in which you would like scheduled.

Attached note:
Additional copies of this letter have been delivered and reviewed by the following city factions:
Storm Lords, Ironwatch Commander: Steeljack, Stormreach Recruiters: Towns Guard, House Sivis: Records
*Pages in a book*
I don't make the rules, I just follow them... Because it makes you angry.

(Some people have been asking me what I'm up to with these. So I thought I would just put my intentions with these posts.

It is not my intention to maliciously attack the guild, or target any individual player. Any characters who have been mentioned or targeted in these posts have given me authority to do so and have agreed to anything written before I post it.

My first goal is to bring attention that often times we do things in RP, often for the greater good, that others might not exactly see as beneficial to the average nameless citizen, and might actually be considered destructive and evil from an outsiders perspective.

My second goal is to act as an actual news paper, and give others an idea of what is going on in some of my RP's that would have been big enough events for other people to have certainly noticed, and as such be brought to the general public's attention. While yes the articles I write are biased to spin tales in a negative light per Will's hatred of The Coin Lords, and anything attached to them, he does the job of getting across RP events that happen with mine and other characters that others might hear about through rumor or just being around the city, or if you were the type of character to pick up a news paper and stay on top of current events. And I would be glad to expand the paper to include other people's events as well, just PM me with info and I would be more than glad to include other events in future entries.

And finally, I like writing in the newsman prose.

Also, thanks to Xy for being my editor!)

AIRSHIP CRASHES IN SEARING HEIGHTS.

MAINTENANCE LAPSE RAISES SAFETY CONCERNS


At approximately ten minutes to midnight last Sol evening, the western side of Stormreach was rocked by a terrible explosion in the skies just west of The Twelve’s magical tower. Witnesses outside of the tower saw the airship light up the sky in a terrible fireball before its burning debris plummeted downward out of sight.

Verona Jethro, a member of a caravan currently seeking shelter outside of the tower, witnessed the disaster: “It was just a quiet night. We were just about to settle in for the night when there was this huge, terrible bang. We thought maybe it was something the wizards in the tower were up to, but Smiley, who was on watch, pointed out the falling debris. It was like streaks of fire streaming through the night sky well off in the distance.”

The explosion was loud enough that it could be heard in nearly all quarters of Stormreach, the airship exploding a few miles west of the city over the area known as The Searing Heights. The ship, identified as The Smiling Princess, is registered as privately owned and operated by Captain Smith, claiming Stormreach as its home port. Due to poor record keeping by the Airport Master, no exact crew count is available. However, the ship, a Windspyre Sparrow model, has a crew compliment of 7 and a passenger capacity of up to 30 members. It is assumed all souls were lost. A recovery party was only able to identify the ship’s name and model before Drow tribes in the region with sour relations with Stormreach asked them to leave. Several bodies were recovered and no survivors were found.

Due to the lack of a full recovery of the ship, it is impossible to know exactly what caused the catastrophic disaster; however, public records regarding the ship’s maintenance record indicate it may have been a ticking time bomb. The ship, while claiming Stormreach as its home port, has not had any maintenance performed on it in the last 10 years, since it transferred ownership to Captain Smith in 994 YK. Records indicate the ship made port at the Falconer’s Spire just north of the Marketplace bazaar only four days ago. It was not grounded as per regulations.

Taelyn d’Lyrandar explains, “Airships are held to a very strict safety standard to ensure the safety of all airship passengers, not just those of House Lyrandar. Per the International Trade Treaty of Sharn, all airships, private or public, who fly in the skies of Eberron must adhere to a very strict maintenance schedule. While House Lyrandar has an impeccable safety record, it is in the interest of the entire airship industry to maintain airship travel as the safest form of transportation. It is the responsibility of any Airport Master to ground any airships that do not meet these strict maintenance requirements for the safety of their own crew.”

This raises serious questions as to why the Airport Master, a public worker employed by The Coin Lords, did not ground The Smiling Princess before she left port. While we will never know the exact cause of the explosion over the Stormreach sky last night, the lives of all those lost are in the hands of The Coin Lord officials who looked the other way while an ill-maintained vessel left their docks. This raises the question whether other privately owned airships are also cutting corners with maintenance and perhaps are using Stormreach’s lax officials as a way to bypass airship expenditures. House Lyrandar is investigating this incident further, and will decide if penalties against The Coin Lords will be needed.
