Spring 2 Rumors
"Shit man, I saw Freydis the Undying, you know- that Badass branded Nord who just joined the jacks? Yeah, anyway, I saw her take down like twelve zombies on her own. They kept stabbing her and she kept laughing like it was nothing. Was absolutely fantastic. When it was done she just sat down and downed a tankard of mead like it was nothing. Hot damn, I want her on my side!"
"Members of the church are advocating for the magic guilds to cure the diseases that show up in this cursed valley. Are they not faithful enough to channel Benalus' power?"
"That Gothic Model thing seems great! I can finally get what I need without having to beg a merchant!"
"The inquisition is slipping, if they don't get their act together we are likely to see more! That will be even worse!"
"In losing Bakara, another valuable member of the Stragosan leadership has been run out. I wonder if the Trakts will install another family member in the leadership of the city."
"We were all starvin’ and my cousin was not long for the world. None of us had enough to eat. Thought we were right fucked, but then wouldn’t ya know it? That that fancy pants Balthazar guy came in and dropped enough food at our doorstep to feed me and half the city ta boot. Damn, I really owe that guy, wish there were more people out there like him helping out, guess they don’t call him “Good Friend” for nothing."
"It's a shame the nobility has been hiring the Black Jacks less. I felt safer when the Black Jacks were the ones protecting us."
"That imperial knight being in town is pretty strange, but have you talked to him? Nothing like the last ones I met -- he was actually pretty nice!"
"Lord Borso of the Metali is a credit to merchants everywhere. We are surely blessed to have him with us in Stragosa."
"Guildmaster Alonzo's Masterpieces have become some of the most sought-after, due to be performed by troupes throughout Stragosa."
"Benalus be praised for Sir Hezke's presence in Stragosa. Her indomitable will is the city's guiding light."
"People say that rats are the work of evil but have you ever spread rats guts all over your face? It's all the talk here in my neighborhood, I've heard many talking about how smooth their skin has become after doing this. They also are the only ones that haven't gotten sick in our neighborhood. Coincidence? No, rats' guts have healing properties."
"The monster that made people bite themselves was brought here by kuarlites. When they pray to Kuarl, which is just an old language name for malefic violence, the monsters smell it and attack us."
"House Giotolli has been employing many of the lower class left without homes, and rumors are they feed their workers particularly well."
"These services the city council has begun offering lately are things already offered by the guilds. Are they trying to undermine and get rid of the guilds?"
"At the forum of Tressertag, Sir Emeric Sanguine found the plague wraith and its corpse eaters attacking the Casa. Storming the building, he swore that no one would die and heroically slew the plague wraith with no casualties, fulfilling his oath."
"It’s really great seeing everyone working together to clean up the streets. The Princess and Sergio are digging trenches and Bishop Adeodatus, the Green Lady and the Black Bard are laying bricks side by side while the architect, Marcellus directs everyone."
"The Church is looking to limit the influence of the Guilds by offering skills and goods of their own to the population."
"The clergy are all working together to get the city Sanctifications up to help keep out the Malefic."
"I got Masterwork armor for FREE from the Gothic Model! I can’t believe this works."
"In hopes of proving themselves flexible, the Gothic Nobles have been making plans for a roast festival of humor and satire."
"The new prosecutor, the guy with the weird scary eyes, was trying to taunt the fae at the trial. There were so many innocent people and he didn't hesitate to say things that anger the fae creatures, many could have died because he couldn't hold his tongue. That is someone that does not care whether others live or die. Is that the person we want in our city? Also his eyes look unnatural, someone that looks like that can't possibly be the work of God."
