Soup Kitchen 1
Soup Kitchen 2

As rumours of a soup kitchen spreads among the commoners of the city, more and more needy people come to the soup kitchen whenever it is set up. Most are thankful towards the Everwatch who are providing the food. However, as with all crowds of some size, a conflict arrise here and there and there will always be those two or three troublemakers who just want to prey on the weak.

After request from the Everwatch, the Flaming Fist has assigned two soldiers and a sergeant to keep the peace at the soup kitchen. They keep mostly quiet and watchful unless there is trouble, and leave the food business to the Watchknights.

All over the city, Flaming Fist soldiers can be heard discussing a new development. It is said that a company of a hundred and fifty Hellriders led by the notorious Captain Raman will be camping near the city at the expense of their home city, Elturel.

Most of the Fist are pleased to welcome comrades in arms, given the disturbances to the north. Older veterans in fact tell tales of Captain Raman and his iron, and sometimes brutal, resolve to get the job done and see his men home. To these old soldiers this is a good thing.

Screams can be heard in the palace district from the residence of Lord Bernard Duskwater in the morning hours as servants come in to work for the day. Soon after the house is surrounded by Fist soldiers. Several body bags are being carried out and a few Duskwater guards and servants with injuries are carried out and transported to an infirmary. The Fist soldiers remain at guard outside and shoo away anyone curious enough to approach.

In the Harbour District, particularly in the Blushing Mermaid, murmurs occasionally can be heard from people who have been into the sewers that one particular gate of iron bars smells of a strange mix of decaying flesh and spilt ale along with the usual smell of sewage. The few who have ventured through the gate and into the sewers claim to have seen long-dead dwarven corpses lying on the disgusting ground. Some even claim that they have seen long-dead dwarven corpses walk down there, but they usually laughed at.

At the Blushing Mermaid and the Elfsong Tavern, whispers can be overheard of rumours saying that several noble estates have recently been burglarised with very little clues as to how or by whom. No one can tell where these rumours originated, but if asked, the Flaming Fist will dismiss it with a handwave.

There is an air of excitement in the eastern harbor over the next day. Word around the docks is that the same woman that had been running the soup kitchen had set up a healing tent the night before, and had healed some of the district's most impoverished citizens free of charge.

An old priestess of Chauntea tells stories of the kindness and generosity they had displayed to her despite her age. A baker complains fervently to her customers about the slow service. A dark-haired woman tells tales in the Blushing Mermaid of the kiss she had failed to steal.

No matter what version of events travelers might hear, it would be obvious that this act had lifted the spirits of the district's residents, giving them a reason to smile. Such reasons had been in short supply in Baldur's Gate as of late.

Rumours say that three dwarves were arrested by the Flaming Fist for unspecified reasons, but that on their way to the Flaming Fist headquarters, the four attending Flaming Fist soldiers had been attacked by more dwarves and the arrested dwarves were freed. One of the Flaming Fist soldiers were killed, the other three were severely wounded. Or so the rumours go.

No rumours indicate what direction the dwarves took after the liberation.

Dockworkers and and other lower-class commoners can often be heard chatting about a seemingly organized group of dwarves that have been burglarising and pickpocketing people througout the city. There are even mentions of the detail that they carry cheaply jeweled daggers.

Rumours circulate that the Flaming Fist has begun a recruitment drive to meet the rising threat in the north: and, it is rumoured, the Virtuous Soil's intermittent insurrection.

The recruiters are being very selective, only taking the most physically fit volunteers, of suitable temperment. Rumour has it that Duke Eltan would recruit more if he could, but the funds are just not available to recruit more widely. Until more money becomes available, any wartime expansion of the Flaming Fist will be limited.

Rumors circulate of a charity masquerade ball being organized in the palace district by Lady Evelyn Bartholomew, a wealthy noblewoman of Baldur's Gate. Entrance is a donation of a yet to be determined amount where proceeds are going to those affected by the plague earlier in the year. The ball is to be held in three days.

Anyone visiting the somewhat secret shrine of Mask recently, may have found it desecrated. The symbol of Mask taken down and crushed on the floor. A jeweled dagger taking its place.

Shortly after, the place seems to be recently cleaned and a new symbol of Mask hangs where the previous had hung, a fire opal lies as offering beneath it.

Visitors, many of them retired Fist veterans, cluster round a notice put up in the Temple of the Shield.

Many stay behind in the temple, receiving training from the priests.

Foes arise in the north and great struggles take place. And so we set our vigil, standing as shield between horrors and the innocent.

Veterans and other faithful who would defend Baldur's Gate, remember the commands he gives. Lend the strength of your arms to his holy cause, the Crusade of the Watch, the lead elements of which even now march to Baldur's Gate here to protect.

Baldur's Gate - Harbour District

After the undead had swept through the city, a dwarf recognized by his beard as Durin Ironfaar and a human paladin of Helm known as Elias Raemir were seen with an angel in tow. The angel flew about the city several times, now and then pausing to sweep down and kill undead. Those who caught a glimpse of it would have seen that it was wounded.

Some of those who had fallen in the harbour district had were placed at the Flaming Fist Headquarters in rows. Another Helmite paladin by the name of James Watts joined and the angel asked them to kneel, to give of themselves to those who had nothing, calling for Helm's aid and powers.

Rumour would spread of something akin to a miracle as the angel gave his aid and of his own powers to restore life to the innocent the paladins had failed to protect but not without cost to the paladins.




Later on, when things calm down, Elad in the Merchant's League can be heard complaining loudly to anyone who he meets that some undead had found their way to the basement where he keeps expensive foreign carpets and vases. A few adventurers fitting the descriptions of Mortimer, Samn, James Watt and Valamyr Xxiksen took care of the problem but also locked in one of their own, who was thought to be a thief. When a Flaming Fist returned, the supposed thief had escaped through the sewers.

(also starring DM Pun-Pun)




Baldur's Gate - East Gate District



As the assault on the very streets of Baldur's Gate winds down, a frantic woman hurries around, calling for her lost son, Timothay. Several people, among them Aneris the initiate, Phaedre Abbot the Awakened, Lelande Lloros the guardian, and Zann Singe the mage head out to search, hoping against hope that the child had survived the carnage in the streets and houses where the clattering of bony feet can still be heard.

After fruitlessly searching many homes and clashing with the undead within, Phaedre, Lelande, and Zann find a child hiding behind a secured chest, clasping a rainbow-colored acorn and seemingly unafraid of either the blood-and-soot-soaked heroes, or the merciless undead that trod in the very house mere moments ago. After ensuring that the boy is, indeed, Timothay, and warding him as best they could in the event of unexpected undead ambushes, the three escort the excitable child back towards his grateful mother.

Boy and parent then left for the Temple of Ilmater, escorted by Zann.

In the wake of the undead attack, tales about of individual heroism, lucky escapes, or daring rescues by the adventurers who rallied to the cause. Many also talk of the personal bravery of all the Dukes and the resolution of the city to stand resolutely in the face of threats to its innocent citizens.

Yet the sudden and seemingly unstoppable nature of the attack has left many in the city shocked and uncertain. Despite the the rhetoric and the celebration of saviour heroes, even after the dead are buried and the damage repaired there still remains an undercurrent of something far more intangible.

Fear
