General Rumors about Town
- With all the free slaves confiscated by the Council, the Cadorna Textile business is booming.
- In addition to the food shortages, all of the coin in town is apparently debased…nothing but Electrum. Inflation is out of control.
- The Council has put forward a bill to begin minting its own currency.
- The Gnoll Army still hasn’t attacked. Maybe they got lost.
- The Gnoll Army was just an illusion, created by the Necromancer of the Quivering Forest.
- The dragon was sighted flying over the city again. This time the witnesses all agree that it was Silver-coloured…or maybe just gray…or white.
- The Undead from Valhingen Graveyard have started venturing forth to attack the North-siders.
- The Sunnites have been on a rampage lately, smashing all the statues left by the Basilisk attacks because the looks of terror on all the faces were too ‘unattractive’.
- People taking water from Kuto’s Well have started complaining about fevers.
- A new Bazaar has sprung up out near the far end of the West Phlan Road, past Kuto’s Well, for merchant’s trying to evade Council Tariffs.
