Shadow events

Post by faceless » 05 Nov 2019, 16:18

The city of Shadow is on high alert after a bag full of heads was found left in the town square. The guards have become highly suspicious of outsiders and one of the more notable Commanders Durant is currently leading the investigation. Durant has been seen to especially antagonize any non humans he comes in contact with and claims that all such creatures are suspects until proven otherwise. Several have been provoked into a fight according to rumors and ended up behind bars as a result.

Word has been spreading about the city that Durant's hunt for the murderer has taken a vicious turn. An elven man was beaten to death by Durant and his retinue, the official report stating that they were caught using fey magics to exploit and steal from citizens of the city. When confronted it is reported that the elf attempted to use his magics to attack the guardsmen leaving them no choice but to defend themselves. Witnesses to of the event are being tight lipped and none have refuted the official report.

Currently it is said that he is asking around after a half-elven girl with dark tresses that goes by the name of Rosalyn as a primary suspect in the investigation. She is wanted for questioning about the dismembered townsfolk though they have not yet posted an arrest warrant.

Rumors are making the rounds in Shadow that the slain elf was mutilated and defiled in the morgue, organs, flesh and bones stolen for gods know what purpose. There is a quiet rumbling in the underbelly of the city about the atrocities being perpetrated against the non humans and it seems many of the humans appear content to look past it as their own businesses suddenly have less competition and new venues open up for them to move into...

A great deal of strife has occurred in the city of Shadow recently with decapitated human heads being found in various shops around the city, placed on the shelves in a taunting manner to be found by horrified shoppers. Durant has declared these attacks as a deliberate assault on humankind in Shadow by lesser races jealous of human ingenuity and skill. He has doubled the size of the city guard, mostly with hand picked soldiers of his own and is redoubling his efforts in the investigation.

In addition known criminal and thief George was found in the main square of the city and when the guards attempted to apprehend him a massive battle ensued. Several guards were killed in the battle as well as a tiefling who was apparently drawn into the fight. George was eventually captured and arrested but has since escaped. Commander Durant is calling for his head and promises a swift execution should he be caught again.

It is being whispered around the city of Shadow that Durant has been seen meeting with Shades and may even have some business dealings with them. Official word is there is some form of agreement as far as investigating the murders in the city as the murderer may have originated in Tharis and moved on to Shadow when the Tharis law was closing in. Durant seems interested in keeping a tight handle on the situation and the Shades have reportedly not been allowed access to anything without a strict guard to oversee all activities.

Rumors of rebellion are spreading and it is said that a tribe of wood elves in the southern forests may be seeking retribution for some of their own who have been imprisoned while visiting the city.

In other news a guardsman has been found murdered in a side street, stabbed in the lung from behind and left to bleed out. There are currently no witnesses that have come forward but the guard are now on edge and the city seems on the edge of martial law.

A Shade envoy from Tharis was seen in the city recently with an escort of Shadow military. They were taken into the Church catacombs to investigate the corpses of the recently murdered townsfolk. The visitation was cut short by a brawl at the bar on the west side of the city which escalated into a full fledged riot. The Shades were forced out while the situation was resolved and Commander Durant mobilized the cities military to quickly squash the riot with minimum damage done.

The human folk of the city have been giving praise for Durants quick and efficient handling of the situation which minimized damages while ensuring many of those responsible are now in prison cells. To nobodies surprise many of those found responsible were non humans...

Reports are spreading around the city of Shadow that another battle broke out in the middle of the city square resulting in the death of several guards and the local collector. Witnesses say that the battle was started by a exotic looking human with silvery hair and who is rumored to have fey heritage. A spell causing monstrous black tentacles to appear and attack those present which escalated into an all out battle. Durant has made his stance clear that these sorts of events will get zero tolerance and has placed a bounty, dead or alive for all those involved. It is his belief that any of those involved could have withdrawn to prevent the continued violence but instead remained to murder citizens of Shadow in a protracted battle that he considers an attack on Shadow itself.

A bounty of 500,000 gold has been issued for the following individuals dead or alive

A lithe and wiry human with silvery hair pulled back into spikes (name: unknown)

A well dressed elf with green eyes and black hair (name: Cinque)

A small pale senzokuan man wearing a large rice hat (name: Xiongsi)

A terrifying aasimar with pale skin and blood-dipped white hair (name: Selucia)

A towering, muscular tiefling, with dark red skin, long, smoothly curved horns, glowing red eyes and golden hair (name: Bannic)

The following message has been recently posted as chaos descends on Shadow.

The people of Shadow face a graver threat now than ever, the Priestess known as Selucia of Jarmilas faith has gone mad and in response to being bountied for her murder in Shadow has chosen to return to the city and murder more of our guardsmen. After laying low over a dozen men she brutally removed the heads of three and left them in a sack at the west gate. Within she left a written challenge to the city and Commander Durant.

The price on Selucia's head has now tripled to 1.5 million gold as well as an offer of official position of Guardian of Shadow. We are in need of powerful individuals to protect our livelihood and if you can stand against one as mighty as Selucia of Jarmila we want you to stand with us.

The tumult in Shadow does not seem to be abating, the city government and military has instituted martial law and a strict curfew as a result of the murderous rampages of non-humans of late as well as the open bounty placed on Commander Durant himself.

Not all are dark tidings though, a celestial Deva calling himself Mal'kor the Malakhim of Jarmila has been seen moving through the city aiding those in need and healing the sick and injured. Those suffering under the oppressive regime most now whisper praises to Jarmila and her celestial servant.
