Here are some sample results:
There have been disappearances in Charouse, the capital of Montaigne, in recent months. Those disappearing are not all of a type; everyone from homeless to merchants to nobles has vanished without a trace. The only connection between them is that they are never found again and all the disappearances have happened reasonably close to an entrance to the Montaigne Tunnels. There’s a growing belief that something dwelling within the tunnels has recently awoken, and is now preying on those it can find.
There’s a group of people from possibly every country who are trying to bring back the old principles of honour. There have always been a few remnants who stood by the principles of old, but now they are trying to get more to do the same. Not that there is anything underhand about what they are doing, for such would be against the code of honour they are promoting. They are more likely to fall victim to those who don’t follow such principles.
There’s a plot supposedly by the Rilasciare to assassinate Queen Elaine of Avalon, but this doesn’t seem to fit in with the aims of the society. The Rilasciare want to destroy monarchies, even ones as popular as Elaine’s, but they want to do so by destroying the idea of queens first. The only thing assassinating Elaine would seem to accomplish would be to cast the Glamour Isles into turmoil. So perhaps that’s the point, and someone else is actually behind the plot, someone who wishes to see Avalon weakened.
There’s a rumour that someone has claimed to have discovered an actual Syrene corpse. The corpse was not in good condition, of course, and may possibly have been mummified. However, no-one knows who it is who apparently discovered it, nor how to find them. They appear to have disappeared.
The Sarmatian Commonwealth is increasing the size of its army, especially the elite winged hussars. It’s supposedly a purely defensive measure, to guard against possible invasion, but the current size of the army has proved effective enough at that. So, increasing the size of the Commonwealth’s armed forces can only be for offensive purposes. Perhaps they are intending to spread Golden Liberty by force.
