Regional News

The Southern Chapter have built a new Chapter House in Tusk (Ivory Hill) and recently used it to induct three new members into the order.  The Dosalic sisters (Minia & Maple) as well as Rana Nervetti become officers of the order.  Other members are still exploring in the Narlemarch and investigating the disappearance of our neighbours at Varnhold.

The Religious Forum have authorised the establishment of a shrine dedicated to Acavna at Kunlun.  Acavna was a deity of the ancient Azlanti people, who has long believed to be dead.  The Forum has also been appraised of the cult of Gyronna, a deity proscribed in the Souther Region,  that was operating in Midmarch.  The leader has been declared dead and the followers are under investigation.

Midmarch News

Henry, Viscount Midmarch has been long been interested in extending Midmarch to the area west of the Narlemarch, and now he has achieved his goal.  The Dosalic sisters, from Mivon, have agreed to take over the Old Villa and Bogside and run then as a personal estate of Midmarch.  Henry has built new roads, leading to the revitalised settlements of Apple Lodge and Litwin's Cove.

Outpost: This small village saw an outbreak of Gyronna Woship - although that was scothched my members of the Southern Chapter (including the aforementioned Rana Nervetti) with assistance of patrol members from the village.  The Church of Erastil and the Roth family have stepped in to help Lord Henry revitalise the community.

New Dawn: House Aeris have allied with the Dwarven Clan Stigmar.  The dwarves will assist in defence and have promised to fetch Torag's faith to the region.  In parallel with this arrangement, Marik Aeris has been awarded the title and patent of Lord-Dominus of New Dawn.

Whiterun: House Vallani have opened canals and navigations to bypass the waterfall and cascades on the Shrike River - enabling water-borne trade between Tusk and Restov.  Merchants should note, however, that the Vallani Canals can only accommodate vessels of fifteen feet beam and fifty feet in length.  Our reporter understands that the canals might be widened later.

Ringbridge: Lord Cyrus of Ringbride has decided to come out of his self-imposed retirement to lead an expedition into the southern wllderness.  He will be accompanied by lady Viktoria Lebeda-Sud (who has recently returned to venturing after the birth of her child).  The will be assisted by the latest recruits to the Southern Chapter.  Lady Valoria has established a  Wizard's Guild in Ringbridge, to encourage the use of arcane magics and facilitate the sharing of spells between members.

Tatzleford: The reclusive town of Tatzleford, deep in the Narlemarch, has claimed land  along the banks of the Skunk River, in an effort to protect their waterborne trade with Tusk.

Tusk News

The Council of greater tusk have been developing a long term plan for their new Free City State.  Lord Adoven and Lord Kendrick have both expressed and interest in building developments close to the city, with the avowed intent of protecting the city from the south.

Tusk: The council have expanded the Central Keep into a castle and strengthened the Inner Wall, thus enhancing the safety and security of all Tusk's inhabitants.  In line with their started policies they have paved the streets of Ivory Hill, built district walls and started a new outer district called Watergate.  V&A shipping have recently opened offices in both Jovvox and Mivon, which will (eventually) improve trade to the south.  Lady Pipre has built herself a luxurious estate in Ivoryhill, while House Medveyd-Solanus are building a villa in the hinterlands.  Tusk is certainly the place to be!

Silverton has seen a lot of development this year.  Sister marceline has started a new Pharasmin Order, dedicated to the eradication of the undead, Lord Cass has started a Performers' Guild and this organ has established its offices in the town.

Reedham: Lady Pipre has established a small village to the south of Tusk.  While she says it is to help patrol Candlemere, our investigator thinks the real reason might be to protect her mother, the swamp witch, from unwanted visitors.

The March-Holds

Old Keep:The Druidess Zelona has finally established her march-hold based on the Old Keep found at the head of the Murque river.  She has encouraged Maril to establish a Shrine dedicated to the Green Deities along the trail to Tatzleford, and Lex, an Officer of the Southern Chapter, to set up there as a Master Bowyer.  She tells us that it might be open to external investment next year - so longs as the investment proposals are acceptable and don't damage the local wilderness.
