Just as they may do so in other settings, players may have their characters ask around in Pugmire for rumours and information, perhaps for an adventure they are currently doing. This supplement provides a list of 100 different rumours they can find, that tell stories about happenings, real or supposed, in and around Pugmire and the surrounding lands.
These rumours may simply provide background colour or possible misinformation, as just because a rumour is told does not mean that it is true. Alternatively, the Guide may use the rumours as a source of adventure hooks that can be fleshed out into actual adventures.

Houndton is considering declaring independence from Pugmire again, but this time they plan to form a new nation with Waterdog Port. The resources of Houndton and the seagoing capacity of the port will make them far more powerful than Pugmire. The crown may have to use force to stop this.
Hunters are wanted for an expedition into the Fearful Forest. A group of dogs plans to go deeper into the forest than usual in order to set up a lumber camp to harvest the older trees only found away from the edges where many of the larger trees have already been chopped down. The hunters will be needed to guard the camp and the lumberjacks.
Illiad Siberian, one of the envoys to Pugmire from the Monarchies, is apparently looking to hire some dogs - and rats, badgers and moggies if need be - to go on an expedition for him. Just where this expedition is planning to go is something the cat is keeping very close to his fur.
In the Fearful Forest there’s an undiscovered area, a site of Man, that isn’t guarded by anything. Artefacts and plastic are just lying around to be picked up by enterprising paws. Of course, just because the site is not guarded does not mean that it is safe or easy to get to.
In the past dogs have claimed to have seen giant ants making labyrinthine underground warrens in the wilderness. Recently, some of the more distant villages and farms have claimed to have discovered giant ants on their lands. It’s uncertain as to whether the ants are colonising new areas willingly or whether something has driven them away from their old nests.
