Rumors 4-2-17

1. Tis said the Elven nation of Isindhuel will be gifting the upcoming wedding of Princess Ellarhen of Highwater to Lord Heir Steward Johann Palphre with the Rites of the Sapphire Dragon. Word has it, any law or word bound by the Statue's magic rites can never be broken.
-Sir Garrick Steelweaver
2. I wuz fishin' o'er at Auguss Pier whens I saw 5 blokes jus' ris up out de water and walk rights out de ocean. They looked likes dead guys. I isn't eat'in none of doze fish no mores.
-Herg the Hook
3.My Da used to be a curator for the Royal family's collection of artifacts in the Elven Capital city in Isindhuel and he told me the Sapphire Dragon had the power to melt an entire army. Cross my heart and hope to die if I'm lying.
-Jahrin Vecta
4. Word has it a fleet of Isindhuel Comets will be sailing into the Bay of Pearls in honor of the upcoming royal wedding. Comets are said to be the fastest ships to ever touch the water and they can turn on a Davarian Copper, but I'd still place coin on Shannderian Corvettes going just as fast once they reach the open water.
-Paelish Gray
5. A place called the Golden Knot has been shut down by the city guard after selling fake Gnollies in Clam sauce at an elevated price. Not only that, but apparently the fake Gnollies were also tainted with some kind of paint resin that made everyone really sick!
-Sir Karl of Bushong
6. The Elves have been going all out to honor the upcoming Royal Wedding, but King Valdor and the Dwarves have been all but silent. Don't they have some stupid rock or something they can bring and pass it off as a historical artifact or something?
-Pike Dirgewater
7. There's these Raven haired dames wut come in my pub a lot to play a song or two. They calls dem Zig and Zag cuz of the way they weave they songs back and forth. I also heard doze dames used to give a lot of coin to the Sulah temple fore it was burnt up.
-Burton Barkeep, owner of the Copper Coin.
8. The log jams of refugees and new adventurers camped outside the city as well as within are creating an infrastructure crisis in the city, but the Senate isn't saying much about it. Getting in and out of the city is a multi day effort. The town guard is overtaxed and food is starting to rise in cost to the point where the poor can no longer afford it. It won't be long before fresh water is in shortage, even with the expansions and discoveries at the Academy to stretch provisions. If someone attacked, this city would become a slaughterhouse and everyone within would have nowhere to flee.
-General Randal Fanghoren
